Chanel Kicks Off The Holiday Season With Celebratory No 5 Calendar

The French maison launches a gift – filled calendar to help you count down to the holiday season.

Is it ever too early to get into the holiday spirit, or to buy yourself something special? To kick off this year’s season of giving, Chanel launches its very own advent calendar.

The No5 Calendar, a collector’s item filled with Chanel goodies, comes in the shape of the iconic No5 perfume bottle. The product is a first for the brand, and each present is inspired by the fragrance famously worn by timeless beauty Marilyn Monroe.

‘Once this fellow says, ‘Marilyn, what do you wear to bed?’ So I said I only wear Chanel No.5,’ recounted the actress. Now, you can too, as the first gift in the Chanel advent calendar is a miniature bottle of No.5 Eau de Perfum. (Somewhere else in the lineup you may find a full size bottle as well!)

The calendar cheekily begins on number five and goes to 31, with 27 boxes in total. Inside are stickers, ornaments, jewelry, and makeup , to name a few. Hand cream, body lotion, and Eau de Toilette Spray are all scented with No.5. Alongside more traditional Chanel products are a flipbook and snow globe. And spoiler – the final gift boz reveals a bracelet adorned with a five, Gabrielle ‘Coco’ Chanel’s lucky number.

The limited – edition advent calendar is available for purchase on Chanel’s website for $825.
