Chanel Bedtime Routine

Sleep is a vital, often neglected, component of every person’s overall health and well-being. Sleep is important because it enables the body to repair and be fit and ready for another day. Getting adequate rest may also help prevent excess weight gain, heart disease, and increased illness duration. Chanel has some amazing products for a luxurious bedtime routine. Indulge in this caring and perfuming ritual for the face and body to wake up relaxed and glowing.

Chanel Hydra Beauty Camellia Repair Mask

Hydrating is the key for a beautiful skin. While relaxing in the evening, I recommend to use this multi-use hydrating comforting face mask formulated with camellia wax to help lock in moisture, and panthenol, a moisturizing ingredient that protects the skin. The ultra-rich texture provides instant comfort while protecting the skin barrier. It has a leave-on formula, for all skin types.

Chanel Hydra Beauty Camellia Repair Mask comes in a 50ml package.

Chanel Le Lift Crème de Nuit

Once the mask is kind of absorbed, this smoothing and firming night cream for face and neck will do the rest. It has botanical alfalfa concentrate which is as efficient as retinol but very gentle on the skin. The dual-action Neuractif Night Complex gives skin a renewed look.

Chanel Le Lift Crème de Nuit comes in a 50ml package.

Chanel Sublimage L’Extrait de Nuit

If you want to indulge in pure luxury, this high-power skincare is the thing for you. A regenerating and restoring night concentrate that helps skin reconnect to its natural restoring cycle. This incredibly sensorial, highly concentrated serum contains naturally derived chronopeptide, plus Vanilla Planifolia and neroli fermented elixirs complex for ultimate power. Upon awaking, skin looks rested and radiant. Night after night, the complexion appears restored and strengthened.

Chanel Sublimage L’Extrait de Nuit comes in a 40ml package.

Chanel Coco Mademoiselle L’Eau Privée Eau Pour La Nuit

For the first time, Olivier Polge has imagined a night fragrance. Composed around a delicate accord of jasmine absolute and rose petal notes, L’Eau Privée exalts the most sensual and softest musk notes of the Coco Mademoiselle fragrance. It’s the ultimate touch before night falls.

With L’Eau Privée, I wanted to create a light and delicate version of Coco Mademoiselle, imagining a night fragrance like a soft and sensual veil.

Olivier Polge, Chanel Perfumer

You would love to apply it on your pulse points, where the skin is warmest: ‘the place where you would be kissed’, on the wrists, behind the ears, in the dip of the décolleté or at the nape of the neck, or even to scent the hair. Screen icon Marilyn Monroe famously said in an interview in 1952 that she wore ‘five drops of Chanel No. 5’and nothing else in bed. I am going to say, I only wear a spritz of L’Eau Privée. Chanel Coco Mademoiselle L’Eau Privée Eau Pour La Nuit is available in a 50 and 100ml flacon.

Revamped Chanel Coco Mademoiselle Eau de Parfum Intense is sensuality redefined

 

Chanel Coco Mademoiselle Eau de Parfum Intense Banner

Back in 2001 when Maison Chanel launched Coco Mademoiselle, it quickly kickstarted the trend for unconventional scents thanks to its sensual composition. A two-tiered fragrance that combines the zest of citrus with the sophistication of patchouli, it was crafted for the rebellious woman who is the very definition of elegance.

Sensual, captivating, and seductive are only a few words that describe a Chanel perfume. One of the most praised fashion houses in the world, Chanel crafts timeless, precious and delicate perfumes. Fast forward 17 years later, the Coco Mademoiselle gets an update by way of added depth to its scent profile with a newly launched eau de parfum. Catered for those who aren’t afriad to embrace their follies and passionate pursuits, the reinvented fragrance captivates with its strong character.

Top notes: Sicilian orange, Calabrian bergamot
Heart notes: Jasmine, Roses
Base notes: Madagascar vanilla, Tonka bean, Patchouli

The result is a heady scent comprising of citrusy and woody notes, accented with a fruity touch. At first whiff, Sicilian orange and Calabrian bergamot take charge, giving way to the magnetism of Indonesian patchouli, rose and jasmine. But what makes it stand out is the amber accords of Tonka bean and Madagascar vanilla absolutes — a subtle way of creating a whole new intensity to the patchouli without overwhelming it completely.

Chanel Coco Mademoiselle Eau de Parfum Intense Banner Notes

Created by Oliver Polge, Coco Mademoiselle Intense promises to be more powerful, with a more deeper aroma coming with an intense oriental/woody composition. Even though it opens with fresh Sicilian orange and Calabrian bergamot, it unveils its real character with woody notes of Tonka bean and patchouli mixed with floral accords of roses and jasmine.

It might be an understatement that the Coco Mademoiselle Eau de Parfum Intense is taking sensuality up a notch. “I wanted to remain close to the original formula, while giving it a whole new dimension. I wanted to increase the proportions of fractionated patchouli. Push it to the limit. Unleash its power on the skin without altering the freshness of the top notes.

Olivier Polge

The Sicilian orange and Calabrian bergamot, as well as the fruity accent that distinguishes Coco Mademoiselle can still be identified, but within a few minutes, the Indonesian patchouli takes root and winds itself around the heart of rose and jasmine, ‘giving it a whole new dimension’, explains Olivier Polge. To create an even more magnetic and enduring fragrance, Olivier combined a higher proportion of patchouli leaves with an ambery accord composed of Tonka bean and Madagascar vanilla absolutes. This is a delicate way of adding depth to the structure of patchouli and portraying Coco Mademoiselle EdP Intense even more addictive.

The bottle design remains the same, while the color of the perfume appears to be more gold intense. Chanel Coco Mademoiselle Intense is available in 50 and 100ml Eau de Parfum.

Gorgeous actress Keira Knightley is again the face of this breath-taking and luxurious perfume, launched by Chanel. The British actress, who has been the face of Coco Mademoiselle for a decade, has taken up her fragrant role again playing an irresistibly carefree game of seduction in the new advertising film. This opens with images of her looking through her Haussmannian apartment the morning after a wild party – a Parisian soirée at which our heroine had fun, without ever taking her eyes off the man of her desires.

‘Once Upon A Time…’ by Karl Lagerfeld

Chanel-Once-Upon-A-Time-by-Karl-Lagerfeld.jpg

Karl Lagerfeld’s period film Once Upon a Time, which stars Keira Knightley as Gabrielle Chanel, is finally here – all 15 glorious minutes of it. The film marks a legendary 100 years for the French Maison.

In 1913, designer Gabrielle ‘Coco’ Chanel opens her first boutique in the French city of Deauville, from which she sold her hats.

Financed by her lover Arthur ‘Boy’ Capel, the seaside shop (located in Deauville) saw immediate success, and as they say, the rest is history. The subject of a new, black-and-white short film directed by current Chanel creative director Karl Lagerfeld, British star and face of Chanel Keira Knightley stars as the young Gabrielle, giving us a glimpse into Coco’s extraordinary fashion mind.

Chanel-Once-Upon-A-Time-by-Karl-Lagerfeld-GIF-02.gif

‘Tweed jackets are very chic on a woman’ she observes in the film, which apparently was improvised, the stars making up their lines as they went along. In addition, Lagerfeld tapped favorite muses Stella Tennant, Saskia De Brauw, Lindsey Wixon, male model Brad Kroenig (and his 4-year old son Hudson), male model Jake Davies playing Gabrielle’s’s lover Arthur ‘Boy’ Capel. (the briefest hint of Lagerfeld fave Baptiste Giabiconi), and Sebastien Jondeau, Karl Lagerfeld’s strapping bodyguard. (more Baptiste), along with French actress Clotilde Hesme for roles in the film.

The designer-cum-director reportedly gave the actors (including Knightley, Clotilde Hesme, Lindsey Wixson, Stella Tennant and Tallulah Harlech) their lines just moments before shooting–which makes a lot of sense when you watch the film.

The dialogue is sometimes stilted and awkward. There’s one moment when Knightley, describing a hat to Amanda Harlech’s ‘lady of society’ character, seems at a loss for words. But then, since Lagerfeld was supposedly going for a ‘natural effect’ with the dialogue, that may have been the point. Or, maybe it has to do with the inexperience of some of the cast. Let’s just say we hope Lindsey Wixson, who plays Miss Wonderbilt, doesn’t try to make the transition from model to model/actress any time soon. Either way, it seems that long pauses and sort of awkward dialogue may be becoming a Chanel signature of sorts.

Chanel-Once-Upon-A-Time-by-Karl-Lagerfeld-GIF-04.gif

Incidentally, Lindsey’s last name is misspelled in the film’s closing credits. She’s also listed as playing the exotically-named ‘Miss Wonderbilt’. That’s presumably a cute French typo in place of the actually-named ‘Miss Vanderbilt’. Saskia de Brauw’s cameo, as British poet Vita Sackville-West, is also typo-laden in the credits. Lady Sackville-West’s last name features only two letter ‘e’s, unfortunately.

Chanel-Once-Upon-A-Time-by-Karl-Lagerfeld-GIF-06.gif

That being said, there’s still a lot to enjoy about the film, which is set at the first Chanel store in Deauville, circa 1913. We see Chanel interact with the city’s fashionable ladies and come up with the inspiration behind some of her most iconic designs. When Tennant’s character Lady de Grey tells Chanel she’s wearing her husband’s jacket, the designer remarks, “Tweed jackets are very chic on a woman”. Gabrielle always wanted to cover up her poor background and create her own story so she always had a taste for revolution. She had the idea to transform womenswear by shortening dresses, freeing the waist and cropping hair.

I’m sure Karl Lagerfeld is not going to be winning any awards for this, but it’s a bit of a treat to imagine the Normandy social scene and style at the time.

And of course it’s worth watching for the star cameos alone. Along with Tennant, the Harlechs, Wixson, Knightley, and Hesme, Ashleigh Good, Caroline de Maigret, Saskia de Brauw, Brad Kroenig, Hudson Kroenig, Jamie Bochert, Baptiste Giabiconi, Sebastien Jondeau, Jake Davies, and more also make appearances in amazing period costumes.
