It’s a red CHANEL Christmas time! 

I like my winter holidays to be… all white (well, just the holidays, otherwise I’d better have the snow only in ski resorts). This year though, I think my Christmas will be red. And that is because, for the first time in the history of CHANEL, the legendary clear-glass bottle designed by Mademoiselle Chanel is changing its colour. This Christmas, the famous N°5 is available in a limited edition, all dressed in red CHANEL. I am already thinking of a long sparkling red dress to go with the scent… 

N°5 L’EAU Eau de Toilette and N°5 Eau de Parfum (100 ml) are available in mass-dyed red glass and in  55 numbered red Baccarat crystal bottles for a collector’s edition of the N°5 Parfum (900 ml). 

Visit CHANEL RED exhibition – From December 11th to 30th, Hôtel Marcel Dassault, Paris. Free Admission. Monday to Friday 9:30 am to 7 pm Saturday and Sunday 11 am to 7 pm. 

A red CHANEL Christmas this year because… 

  1. Christmas is a time of year like no other, and N°5 is a fragrance like no other. Red N°5 will be the unexpected element of the winter holiday. 
  2. “Red is the colour of blood”, Mademoiselle Chanel said. And that is the reason that the legendary bottle of N°5 (designed in 1921 and adapted in 1924), a rectangular bottle with simple geometric lines will be, this month… red. 
  3. Red incarnates all the boldness, freedom and strength of a woman who forged her own destiny. Red is the only vivid colour that goes perfectly with black, white, beige, gold (CHANEL colours since… forever). 
  4. Red is the symbol of seductive power and it has always epitomized ultimate femininity.
