Chanel No.5 celebrates 100 years of sweet smelling success

One of the world’s most iconic pefumes, Chanel N0.5, celebrates its 100th anniversary this year.

Like all of madame Coco Chanel’s memorable creations, No.5 broke with the traditions of the time to establish a new norm. In 1921, ‘soliflores’ perfumes, or fragrances that smell like a single flower, were the industry standard. Coco Chanel wanted to stretch the boundaries of perfumery and create a scent that could not be attributed to any one thing in nature.

As she told her perfumer, Ernest Beaux, No.5 should be ‘an artificial fragrance like a dress, something crafted’. The result was a revolution in perfumery that blended more than 80 scents, including jasmine, ylang-ylang, sandalwood and May rose, with an unprecedented amount of aldehydes, the organic compounds that amplify a fragrance’s olfactory profile.

The minimal, square bottle, with a clean graphic label, was also starkly different from the more flamboyant perfume phials of the period. The timelessness of the flacon design is evidenced by how little it has changed since 1921, altering just four times, each with only slight adjustments to cap size or label font. Its enduring appeal is yet another testament to the genius of Coco Chanel. 

The French Maison is unveiling a variety initiatives to commemorate this momentous event in its history. To celebrate the ultimate ‘celebrity’ of the perfume world, the brand released a short film called ‘Celebrity’, starring Marion Cotillard (the face of Chanel No.5), ballet dancer Marie-Agnès Gillot, Chinese fashion media icon Hung Huang, psychologist Laurie Santos, former Vanity Fair editor Graydon Carter, and dance star Lil Buck. The film saw this eclectic array of famous faces discussing the impact of celebrity – its role in shaping our culture, its influence on psychology, and its effect on future generations.

Other initiatives include the Chanel Factory 5, a series of pop-up spaces around the world that will launch from the 29 June. It’s sure to be an exciting year for the brand, with more announcements to come – watch this space. Come into the beautiful world of Chanel.

Chanel Rouge Coco Bloom a new shime is born

Here is a new generation lipstick! Take a look. The first thing you notice about Rouge Coco Bloom is its colour and shine. Bold and vibrant, it reveals an intense glow behind its clear lid. Slide the lipstick out of its case. Admire the elegant silver ring and prepare to be surprised by how slowly the stick rotates. This is no coincidence. As always with Chanel, things have to be as good as they look: chic, unique. Here, the twisting system has been deliberately slowed down, both for flawless application and the sheer beauty of a perfect motion. Notice the texture, so smooth and comfortable, present without overloading. All you need is a single layer to coat the lips with intense and luminous colour.

Wonder at the result. Your smile lights up. In one go the richness of a lipstick and the shine of a gloss come together. Intensity, lasting-hold and plumping effect in one patented* formula developed by the French Maison’s research department: that’s the prowess of Rouge Coco Bloom. Moisturizing and highly concentrated in micronized pigments, this new-generation lipstick keeps its promises for eight hours.

Take your pick from the palette of twenty beautiful and vibrant shades. Unique and special, they reflect Chanel‘s authority when it comes to colour. Play with the colour. Don’t compromise on the results. Vibrate with ‘Alive’, a classic yet surprising red with a subtle rust undertone that gives it warmth and character. Enchant with ‘Radiant’, a romantic, mauve-tinted reinterpretation of universal rosewood. Charm with ‘Merveille’, a soft, natural, delicate shade of dusky rose. Captivate with ‘Season’, a bright, warm fuchsia that evokes summer euphoria. Shine with ‘Sunlight’, an orange with terracotta tones, ideal for getting into a good mood and enhancing the complexion while staying natural. Sparkle with ‘Vitality’, a chic, powerful red to assert your personality. Surprise with ‘Unexpected’, a deep brownish red full of depth and character, warmer than a classic burgundy. Or fascinate with ‘Suprise’, a vibrant plum with red undertones.

At first glance, you’ll notice that the regular sleek black case now features an elegant silver ring instead of the usual gold, reflecting the mirror-like finish of the lipstick. It is also topped with a transparent cap, presented with the signature interlocking CC logo, to reveal the intense glow and hue within. Another point worth noting is that the stick rotates more slowly as the twisting system has been deliberately slowed down for both flawless application and the sheer beauty of perfect motion.

In direct line with Mademoiselle Chanel’s timeless maxim “add more lipstick and attack“, Lily-Rose Depp embodies with freshness, joie de vivre and energy this ode to color that magnifies all smiles. Shine now!

Chanel Rouge Coco Bloom is available at Chanel’s Fragrance & Beauty Boutiques from 26 March 2021, and at selected stores worldwide, from 7 April 2021. Come into the beautiful world of Chanel.

Chanel’s Lipscanner can find you any shade of lipstick

Do you know your favorite lipstick shade? If you do, it’s great, you have a vibrant companion, but on the flip side, it’s unimaginable for a woman to go through life without knowing her favorite shade of lipstick. I would call it a predicament but not without offering a solution.

Parisian Maison Chanel has launched a stunning app called Lipscanner that will make life easier for lipstick lovers by using a combination of patented AI and AR technologies to allow you to identify any color and finish of lipstick from any physical or digital image. If you’re obsessing over color in a magazine, social media post, or someone standing right in front of you, remember the app on your phone and use it. Next, a corresponding Chanel lipstick or product that will flash in front of you may also be tried virtually. If you like it, take a photo and also share it with your girlfriends for their opinion. The app also obviously allows you to buy the liked product on Chanel’s website as that’s the whole point of this exercise.

This isn’t a groundbreaking app as L’Oreal’s AI-powered lipstick device creates a shade of your liking on the spot. Still, Chanel takes a solid stand saying that its algorithm “saves users the task of trawling through large online inventories by seamlessly doing the color recognition and matching for them,” and dubbed the app a ‘world-first for smart beauty. Lipscanner features all of Chanel’s lipsticks and glosses, nearly 400 of them in various finish options from matt to satin. Chanel’s Lipscanner is available to download for free now on iOS.
