A CENTURY after its creation, Chanel has designed limited edition N°5 bottles. Historically, the bottle, box and label have been devoid of excessive embellishment. The new bottles stay true to form with minor yet exciting detail changes.
For the first time, the bottle incorporates recycled glass. This innovation is a result of Chanel’s longstanding partnership with Pochet du Courval, a Living Heritage Company.
The new bottle, which remains as sparkly as ever, was obtained using innovative recycling technology.
Consistent with the sustainable design updates – the box is made of biodegradable paper pulp and is luxurious to the touch.
Lucky number 5 remains a focal point in the perfume’s design. The new reinterpretations feature Mademoiselle Chanel’s famous number inscribed in gold on the labels. The limited-edition bottles are available for two of the five N°5 scents – the original and N°5 L’eau.
The historic perfume is modernised with sustainable technology and stunning design details. It’s the past greeting the present in a perfect tiny package.
