Chanel releases exclusive, limited-editions of its perfumes at Paris CDG Airport

Chanel is thrilling travellers at Paris Charles de Gaulle airport with rare and exclusive, limited edition presentations of some of its most iconic fragrances. 

Chanel has introduced several exclusive new super-premium products at Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport in collaboration with Lagardère Travel Retail and Groupe Aéroports de Paris (ADP).

Headlining the new releases is the limited edition Gabrielle Chanel Grand Flacon Crystal in a 900ml presentation. This exclusive edition comes in a solid Baccarat crystal bottle and in a case wrapped in white leather on the outside and gold leather on the inside. The perfume is composed of scents from four white flowers: jasmine, ylang-ylang, orange blossom and Grasse tuberose.

Gabrielle Chanel was created by Chanel’s in-house perfumer Olivier Polge. In tribute to the year of Gabrielle Chanel’s birth only 83 bottles have been released of this 900ml presentation, each hand-engraved and uniquely numbered.


A brilliant square – its four corners a mirror image of the four points of light that make up the luminous fragrance within. A rare collector’s piece and a true objet d’art, the monumental flacon is a masterpiece of crystal artistry. Hand blown, carved, sculpted and polished to perfection, the sumptuous Baccarat crystal bottle represents a symphony of excellence, a level of artistry achieved only by the hands of the most renowned artisans in France.


Also now on sale through Lagardère at the Parisian airport is Chanel N°5 – Extract 225ml, a perfume featuring floral notes of May Rose and Jasmine. It is supplied in a “majestic faceted” glass bottle and is nestled in a white satin-lined, artisan-crafted case.

Another of the new releases at the French airport is Coco Mademoiselle – Extract 225ml, which also features notes of May Rose and Jasmine, this time enriched by “precious accents of Iris from Florence”. Also bottled in faceted glass, the perfume comes with a “final touch of sophistication”; the bottle is nestled in a white case, trimmed and lined with satin, and protected with a sleeve that unfolds like the petals of a flower.

The final new release is Chanel Sublimage – L’Extrait de Crème, a beauty cream featuring Vanilla Planifolia, which Chanel claims can reduce the signs of ageing. Vanilla Planifolia is selected by Chanel Research from amongst 117 varieties of vanilla around the world.

The products are immediately now at the BuyParisDutyFree store (Lagardère Travel Retail’s outlet) in terminal 2E – Hall K – Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport.
