This post has to be more pictures than words because there’s nothing I can tell you about the fragrance, Chanel No5, that you don’t already know. It can’t have escaped anyone that red is having its moment – almost every premium brand is red-washing its lipsticks (Lancome, Dior, Armani) to stand out from the crowd, I assume. But, I love it – there’s something about red that feels so much more desirable, particularly for lipsticks, than the standard black casings.

Chanel’s red is smoked with black tones – it’s a deep blood red that’s both visceral and alluring and the packaging is both precise and consistent.

CHANEL No5 Red Edition Christmas 2018

No5 has remained my favourite of all the Chanel fragrances – it was the first fragrance Mr BBB ever bought me. He also bought me this charm bracelet about 10 years ago and it’s also the favourite of all my bracelets although I rarely wear it because I’m afraid of losing it. Anyway, Chanel No5 Red Edition is £130 for the 100ml, although I notice today that John Lewis has a 15% price drop making it £110.50 HERE. I think this will be under a lot of trees this Christmas!
