Chanel Reveals its First Advent Calendar in Celebration of 100 Years of Iconic N°5 Scent

The signature fragrance from the French fashion house needs no introduction. Created in 1921 by Gabrielle Chanel, Chanel N°5 is simply a classic – a radical creation that revolutionised the traditions of its era.

And on its 100th birthday this year, it’s as beloved as ever with reportedly one bottle selling every 30 seconds globally. On the back of its stunning high jewellery line, the 100-year celebration of the iconic perfume continues in true Chanel fashion. Now, in true seasonal spirit, the French powerhouse has released its Chanel advent calendar centred around its Chanel N°5.

Beauty advent calendars in 2021 are big business – and Chanel lovers and beauty enthusiasts are going to be delighted about this calendar – it’s the first advent beauty calendar Chanel has ever released.

The advent calendar case is inspired by the instantly recognisable silhouette of the N°5 perfume bottle. The signature case opens to reveal 27 boxes numbered from 5 to 31. Continuing the simplistic monochrome packaging, each sleek white box with a black border hides a piece dedicated to the world’s most iconic scent.

You’ll find a full-sized fragrance or makeup product, a miniature, or another surprise marked with Gabrielle Chanel’s lucky number – many of which are exclusively crafted for the calendar.

Chanel’s black and white branding is a constant reminder this is a luxury beauty advent calendar. Of the 27 surprises, nine are signature beauty products, six of which can be considered ‘full-size’ albeit the smallest bottles Chanel stocks at 35ml.

The remaining 18 presents come as exclusive Chanel-themed trinkets and accessories. There’s a key ring, bracelet, ceramic paperweight, stickers, a mirror, bracelet, tree ornament, and a unique snowglobe.

The No.5 hand cream is a stand-out piece hidden in a chic egg-shaped bottle and the two red luxury lipsticks are typical high-quality Chanel beauty products.

With so few on offer, the extremely limited beauty advent calendar is likely to become a luxury collector’s item. The calendar is scheduled to hit Australian stores in the coming weeks with a RRP of A$1,140.
