HOLIDAY 2021 COLLECTION N°5
In Holiday 2021, CHANEL has designed a collection of exclusive, limited-edition creations to celebrate N°5 turned legend and its 100 years of celebrity.
A complex fragrance blend, a streamlined bottle, a number for a name. When Gabrielle Chanel invented N°5 in 1921, she created a fragrance unlike any other, instantly ushering the fragrances of the era out of fashion. With N°5, Mademoiselle broke free of convention and revolutionized the world of perfumery.
An olfactory masterpiece that paved the way for modern perfumery, N°5 is the manifestation of a resounding success, as well as a fabulous story of self-fulfillment. In 2021, to celebrate this fragrance turned legend and its 100 years of celebrity, the House of CHANEL has designed a collection of exclusive, limited-edition creations.
N°5 LIMITED EDITIONS
For the first time ever, the N°5 bottle incorporates recycled glass, in partnership with POCHET du COURVAL using an innovative recycling technology with a redesigned box made with biodegradable paper pulp.
The lucky number “5” is inscribed in gold and silver on the label of this exclusive reinterpretation.
N°5 has sparked wonder for over 100 years and lives as a reminder of the absolute freedom of the creator who made it a success. In 1921, Gabrielle Chanel decided to pare N°5 down to the essentials. The bottle, box and label are devoid of any superfluous ornamentation. N°5 is the most fascinating embodiment of the House’s spirit. 100 years later, CHANEL has created a new and unique version of N°5 Eau de Parfum. For the first time ever, the bottle incorporates recycled glass, while still keeping its incomparably pure, sparkling, transparent look. The product of a long-standing partnership with POCHET du COURVAL, a Living Heritage Company (Entreprise du Patrimoine Vivant), this high-quality glass was obtained using an innovative recycling technology. The box has also been redesigned. Made with biodegradable paper pulp, it feels sensuous to the touch and closely enfolds the distinctive shape of the legendary bottle. Lastly, Mademoiselle Chanel’s lucky number, 5, is inscribed in gold on the label of this exclusive reinterpretation. The same concept applies to N°5 L’EAU, one of 5 interpretations of the fragrance created by In-House Perfumer Creator Olivier Polge, whose label is adorned with a silver number 5.
N°5 THE CALENDAR
Shaped like an enormous bottle of N°5, the first CHANEL advent calendar includes 27 boxes numbered from 5 to 31. Each of these contains some of the CHANEL’s the most iconic products as well as many surprises dedicated to N°5 and holiday occasion.
(Available in store from 1 November onwards)
Shaped like an enormous bottle of N°5, this holiday calendar was designed as a work of art and is available in limited quantities. Far from conventional, the calendar includes 27 boxes numbered from 5 to 31. 5 for the perfume, 31 for the mythical address. Everything makes sense.
It contains some of the CHANEL House’s most iconic products. Among its many surprises are a limited-edition ROUGE ALLURE lipstick inspired by N°5, LE VERNIS in a new shade of red, and a bottle of N°5 Eau de Parfum, as well as a bracelet bearing the number 5, a one-of-a-kind snow globe, and a host of other accessories dedicated to the fragrance and designed just for the occasion.
N°5 GRAND EXTRAIT BACCARAT 2021ML
The largest bottle of N°5 produced by the House to date, a monumental Baccarat bottle contains 2021ml of N°5 Parfum is housed in a white dipped lambskin coffret design echoes the original packaging.
A total of 55 hand-numbered pieces are made globally with 2 dedicated pieces will be available for purchase in Hong Kong.
The largest bottle of N°5 produced by the House to date, only 55 of these hand-numbered pieces are available. Born from the intersection of CHANEL’s creativity and Baccarat’s craftsmanship, this monumental bottle contains 2021ml of fragrance. This number was due to chance: 2021, to mark the year that N°5 celebrates 100 years of celebrity, but also because the sum of its four digits equals 5. N°5 is presented in its most precious form: the Parfum. The golden color of the fragrance is elevated by the purity of the Baccarat crystal bottle, cut like a diamond using a unique technique. True
to the original design, it is adorned with a white label and crowned with a faceted cabochon. Each exquisite, custom, hand-engraved piece is housed in a white dipped lambskin coffret whose design echoes the original packaging. This exceptional bottle is paired with a Baccarat crystal wand for precise application to the pulse points: behind the earlobe, on the neckline, and on the inside of the wrist.
N°5 HOLIDAY MAKEUP COLLECTION 2021
Inspired by the style codes of N°5 for this Holiday makeup collection, the golden hues of N°5 fragrance have been transformed into makeup for the eyes and face, while lips and nails are draped in red, the colour of life.
The iconic makeup Les 4 Ombres eyeshadow palette and Rouge Allure are featured in exclusive packaging with N°5 motifs.
CHANEL’s Makeup Creation Studio was inspired by the style codes of N°5 for its HOLIDAY 2021 collection, which celebrates the golden amber color of the fragrance and combines it with shades of black, white, and red, the color of life. Now, wearing N°5 not only means enjoying the sensuous experience of applying fragrance, but also wearing warm, luminous makeup, complete with an intense red lip. Emblematic of this approach is the Les 4 Ombres eye palette, which has been reinvented as a N°5-themed, limitededition release, with shades inspired by the colors of the perfume bottle. ROUGE ALLURE is also available in new packaging that celebrates N°5. Opulent, sensual, fascinating, it becomes all the more desirable.
These new exclusive creations are available in store starting from 16th October, 2021 while stocks last.
