Chanel’s N°5 L’eau Limited Edition: The Scarlet Number

It’s fitting that the fashion house behind one of the most iconic shades of red (the cult fave 99 Pirate) and one of the most beloved fragrances would combine to create one of the season’s hottest sensations.

Chanel’s N°5 L’eau Limited Edition ($160) reimagines the sophisticated vessel (famously inspired by Place Vendôme in Paris) in crimson crystal as a tribute to Mademoiselle’s favorite color.

Even more decadent is N°5 Limited Edition Grand Extrait ($30,000). Made in collaboration with Baccarat, artisans melted 24-karat gold powder into the crystal at more than 1,000˚F for a jewel-like effect. Each flacon — of which only 55 are produced — is numbered, filled with 30.4 ounces of the signature scent and nestled in a leather case.
