Love Chanel N°5? Chanel Has Launched An Entire N°5 Factory
Introducing Factory 5, a dreamy collection of covetable Chanel N°5 products here to transform your top shelf.
In collaboration with CHANEL.
Chanel N°5 Eau de Parfum remains the most iconic fragrance in the world and this year Chanel will celebrate 100 years of the treasured perfume. To mark Chanel N°5 turning 100, Chanel has conceived the best gift of all: an entire dedicated N°5 collection, titled Factory 5.
This tribute to Chanel N°5 is a 17-piece collection of limited-edition Chanel items, which all evoke the magic of the N°5 fragrance. Each piece, from a shower gel to a body oil, is scented with the unmistakable notes of Chanel N°5.
What makes this collection extraordinary is how each item is encased within a surprisingly everyday object—including paint cans, washing up bottles and shoe polish tins—a nod to the way in which wearing N°5 transforms the ordinary. The collection was inspired by Andy Warhol’s Factory in New York, where he turned everyday items such as soup cans into art, and in doing so turned the ordinary into the extraordinary.
N°5 The Shower Gel is a beautifully lathering gel housed within a bottle reminiscent of dishwashing soap, while N°5 The Body Oil appears to be the most chic iteration of a mechanic’s oil bottle and is sure to have pride of place in your shower. Mini N°5 Body Lotions look like itty-bitty tubes of artist’s paint, housed within a black and white Chanel N°5 box, while an elegant bar of soap reveals itself inside a tin of shoe polish. Opening each product is a true experience for any beauty fan, with the items inside sure to become highly covetable.
Excitingly, for those who adore N°5, there is an edition of the Eau de Parfum and the Chanel N°5 L’Eau within a limited-edition mould of the fragrance. There’s even a N°5 L’Eau drink bottle which Chanel says makes “tap water suddenly seems desirable, and staying hydrated becomes stylish.” Oh-so chic!
Perhaps the most mysterious of the Factory 5 Collection is the N°5 The Mystery Box—and no, we would never reveal its contents. All we can tell you is the N°5 Mystery Box contains four products that Chanel insists are designed to “treat yourself from head to fingertip”.
Chanel N°5 was first launched on May 5, 1921, when Chanel’s founder, Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel, yearned to create a scent to encapsulate the modern woman. Working with perfumer Ernest Beau, Chanel wished to conceive a perfume that was like nothing else, “A woman’s perfume, with the scent of a woman,” she famously declared. 100 years later, modern women are still wearing Chanel N°5—from Marilyn Monroe to Gisele Bündchen and Lily-Rose Depp, the fragrance has transcended time to become a legendary perfume.
The Chanel Factory 5 Collection is a revolutionary new evolution of the N°5 fragrance, here to spark joy in the lives of the modern woman once again. The best bit? The collection makes for the most elegant addition to your beauty cabinet. Their ability to transform your top shelf is such that you won’t even want to open them—if you can resist, that is. The collectable range is sure to be a sell-out and to become part of the fragrance’s mystique for decades and centuries to come.
The Chanel Factory 5 Collection is available in Chanel Beauty Boutiques from June 29, 2021, for 6-8 weeks or until sold out. Find out more. Please note, due to current Covid-19 restrictions, Chanel Boutiques throughout New South Wales are currently closed.
