The limited edition, Chanel N°5 was gifted and how indebted I feel for such a sensuous new year gift!
Red, Coco Chanel’s favourite colour, is what makes it ultra special! The colour of blood, love, passion, lust, desire, danger, fire, heat, longing, sexuality, sensitivity and romance! These are all the emotions which come running to me with a just a spritz.
Chanel N°5 Eau de Parfum Red Edition was launched in 2018. The nose behind this fragrance is Jacques Polge.

A floral bouquet showcased within an iconic bottle. A legendary, timeless fragrance, now available in a limited edition, dressed in Gabrielle Chanel’s favorite colour: red.
Coming from a luxury brand, this simple clear rectangular laboratory bottle with a facetted stopper has its own set of followers. The outer white sleeve is tied with a Chanel cloth ribbon. The carvings of the now-iconic bottle have remained practically unchanged since its creation. This is such a thoughtful design in order to highlight the fragrance. It has minimalistic branding and now when it has come as a limited edition, all cloaked in red ( for the first time in history), the perfume becomes more drool worthy!
This floral aldehyde bouquet is composed around rose and jasmine and enlivened with bright citrus top notes and the smooth touch of vanilla for an incredibly sensual trail.
Directions to use
The Eau de Parfum comes in a spray for smooth and supple application on the skin. Spray two to three sprays on perfume receptor areas and you are good to go.
Pretty long! It stays soft and powdery for about 8-9 hours easily.
It makes the heads turn from morning to evening! The sillage is pleasant and it leaves a moderate trail behind.
£130.00 per 100ml
- It is simple, pure, effortless, sophisticated and classy!
- The Red Edition is more Sparkling, stronger and sexier than the original. The fragrance is creamy and is full of mystique and glamour.
- It can be worn to a little more than a casual date and to evening office parties.
- The scent does mellow down after a while and gives a little soother but nicely different fragrance!
- The iconic, original and ultra-desirable red glass bottle is not only a gift for others but for yourself too. So wear it with elegance and collect it with pride!
- Some may find the fading smell to be of baby wipes or powder, but I think that fragrance has its own charm too.
Yay or Nay
N°5 is the very essence of femininity and for the first and last time, the iconic silhouette of the bottle is in red lacquer. It shouts popularity, posh, richness but is not pretentious or hyped! I plan on using this on some special occasions, But hands down this is a beautiful legend!
So until Next time ❤️
