Mini fragrances are totally a thing! However, it doesn’t mean mini prices in the case of Chanel. These 15ml Les Exclusifs de Chanel Extraits are £155 a pop. I remember when Chanel brought out Beige – nobody could believe that a fragrance called Beige could be anything exciting, but because it was Chanel, the understated name appeared everywhere. It’s a very pretty fragrance, too.
However, what I really wanted to show you is the beautiful presentation release that came with the fragrances. It is no wonder I’m a Chanel hoarder (can you imagine if I ever ended up on The Hoarder Next Door – those cleaning ladies would be like, ‘oh no, you can’t throw that away’). The booklet – or book – has about 20 pages explaining the fragrances; their notes etc, but also dotted throughout are little fabric Chanel labels, drawings and photographs of Coco Chanel, taped in photo album style.
It is a charming and beautiful thing and I thought you’d like to see it.
