CHANEL · N° 5 The Gold Body Oil & Coco Mademoiselle Pearly Body Gel, Holiday 2022

 

Launched simultaneously with the Holiday Collection (reviewed here), CHANEL pays homage to their iconic N° 5 as well as Coco Mademoiselle fragrances with these two gorgeous body care products that will leave your skin pampered, and certainly party-ready. That said, you can still do the pampering, even if you’re like me and prefer to party hibernate at home.

Marion Cotillard for CHANEL N° 5

 

 

 

 

N° 5 The Gold Body Oil, limited edition (CAN $120.00/250 ml, 8.4 fl oz) | In line with the celestial theme of the Holiday 2022 Collection, this body oil comes housed in a hefty glass bottle with a silhouette that echoes the brand’s iconic N° 5 bottle, topped by a white cap bearing the double C logo. This luxurious oil is filled with shimmering micro sparkles that magically melt into the skin, only appearing when caught in certain lights to lend your skin a stunning radiance. The texture is along the lines of a light oil, and once massaged in, it becomes beautifully absorbed without leaving any greasy residue behind. Bearing the distinctive N° 5 fragrance, it’s a great introduction to this classic scent for anyone who’s yet to try/smell it, and what’s more, you probably won’t need to add any other fragrance on top — but it’s also perfect for layering underneath the matching scent to increase its longevity.

 

 

Coco Mademoiselle Pearly Body Gel, limited edition (CAN $120.00/250 ml, 8.4 fl oz) | Housed in the same hefty glass bottle & cap style as the N° 5 Body Oil, this is the Maison’s other iconic fragrance, captured in a water-based gel version and filled with beautiful pearlescent particles. As before, these shimmering bits are never gaudy or obvious, but are there to provide your skin with a gorgeous luminosity. The texture is slightly more viscous that the oil, feels cooling to the initial touch, and spreads easily along the skin to become fully absorbed without leaving any residue behind. The scent is subtler here and while you can still wear this on its own as your fragrance, it’s also enhanced by layering your favourite version of Coco Mademoiselle on top.

 

 

 

I reached into my collection of CHANEL body oils to see how similar they are and I’m happy to say that they’re all different (see previous review of Les Beiges Illuminating Oil). Every single one of these bottles was limited edition so if you’ve missed out on any of the previous versions, this is a perfect opportunity to grab this latest one — and avoid buyer’s remorse (I hate that 😩).

It’s all in the details: I love how the caps are all different

If you’re a CHANEL die-hard fan & collector (me) — especially with limited edition releases, then you’ll want to jump all over these. Not only are they unique, but make your skin feel, look & smell absolutely divine. And with Christmas a few short weeks away, either (or both!) of these would make for the perfect gift!

Available at CHANEL counters & online for a limited time
