Beginning Nov. 5 at Chanel beauty counters, this limited edition No.5 L’Eau Eau de Toilette and No.5 Eau de Parfum is available in mass-dyed red glass, as is a collector’s edition of 55 numbered red Baccarat crystal bottles of the No.5 Parfum. The original bottle was designed by founder Coco Chanel, who considered the colour red to be a reflection of strength and freedom.
