N°5 is the most iconic fragrance of the century. A radical creation that revolutionised the traditions of its era. A design piece turned icon that celebrates 100 years of fame in 2021.
To mark this very special year, CHANEL has created an exclusive collection inspired by everyday objects, a reminder that wearing N°5 transforms the ordinary. These 17 limited edition products make up the FACTORY 5 COLLECTION.
N°5 THE SOAP, FACTORY 5 COLLECTION. Packaged in what resembles a metal shoe polish tin, this bar of soap produces a light, creamy lather.
Inspired by the blend of rose and jasmine that forms the essence of N°5, the soap has been formulated to accentuate the floral bouquet of the N°5 trail.
In 1921, Gabrielle Chanel called upon Ernest Beaux to create an intense and original "woman's perfume, a scent of woman." The nose presented her with a visionary composition that made unprecedented use of aldehydes. Mademoiselle chose the fifth sample of the fragrance and decided to simply name it N°5. The innovative scent of the fragrance, along with the rare simplicity of its name and bottle, revolutionised the history of perfumery.

The soap prolongs the fragrance trail of limited edition N°5 EAU DE PARFUM and N°5 L’EAU from the FACTORY 5 COLLECTION, leaving the skin subtly scented.
