As far as necessity goes, Chanel No.5 Bath Soap won’t tick any boxes at £22 a bar, but in terms of want, it’s pretty high up the ladder of luxury loveliness. Chanel No.5 is still my favourite of the Chanel fragrances – it was one of my very first ‘grown-up’ perfumes and so I’m attached to it in many ways.
Chanel No.5 Bath Soap is true to the original scent of No.5 but it does have a heavy dose of soapiness to it – and it’s majorly fragranced. I’m leaving this in my bathroom to just perfume the room (it may not look like a luxury bathroom but if it smells like one, I’m happy!) for a while before I actually use it.
As far as presentation goes, it’s about as perfect a soap as you can get – the smoothest, pebble like finish with a big double C logo. Everything at Chanel costs a fortune but as a piece of the action I think £22 is okay – it’s going to last for a very long time at 150g and I’m thinking what a glamorous gift! The Chanel No.5 Bath Soap is part of the No.5 Christmas Gifting range launching on 15th October and it’s accompanied by a body cream (£60) and a loose powder with a puff (£50).
