Chanel dresses No.5 in red for holiday season

17th December, 2018

Chanel are launching limited edition red bottles of Chanel No.5 Eau de Parfum and Chanel No.5 L'Eau Eau de Toilette for the holiday season.

The company say:

Designed in 1921 and adapted in 1924, the clear rectangular bottle with simple, geometric lines and a facetted stopper features a radical architecture that has become the manifesto of a modern aesthetic. Red, according to Mademoiselle Chanel, is “the colour of life, the colour of blood.”

Last month, the company celebrated the launch with a party where bespoke N°5 red taxis lined the streets of London's Mayfair as friends of CHANEL arrived for an evening of dinner and dancing at Annabel’s, hosted by Lily-Rose Depp, the face of N°5 L’Eau, to celebrate the iconic glass bottle being dressed in red.

The fragrances are available as limited editions in 100ml bottles.

        Chanel no. 5 does not strike me as a particularly red fragrance, though I think this is beautiful.

        A somewhat lazy way to ring up sales with ‘limited edition’. I’d rather have a signed Marilyn Monroe edition.

        Thought about getting this for my granddaughter.
