Dans Les Champs de CHANEL: Discovery and Experiences Around the No5


  • A visit to CHANEL's flower fields at Grasse, where the story of the No5 fragrance began, for up to 3 couples, taking part in the flower picking before a private tour of the Bastide


  • 3 special “D'Une Rive à l'Autre” collection cases


  • Lunch with 4 wines from Châteaux Rauzan-Ségla and Canon, cooked by the Chef of the properties


A celebration of this iconic number for CHANEL, and of the stunning 2005 Bordeaux vintage.

The 100th anniversary of N°5 perfume, celebrated in 2021, offers the opportunity to experience the famous and beautiful flower fields at Grasse, the birthplace of French perfumery. Discover the 2005 vintage of both Châteaux Canon and Rauzan-Ségla, with three specially created collection cases containing a bottle of each, alongside a copy of the “D'Une Rive à l'Autre” art book, signed by Nicolas Audebert. You will be welcomed to Grasse by CHANEL and the Mul family, who have been cultivating perfume flowers since 1840, and exclusively for CHANEL since 1987. After a first-hand experience of picking flowers in the fields, you will be guided to the bastide to oversee the weighing and to the factory for the extraction of flowers necessary for the production of the CHANEL N°5 perfume. Following this, you will be welcomed to lunch at the bastide, prepared by the Chef of the Châteaux Canon and Rauzan-Ségla, paired with 4 wines from the properties.

This lot is valid for up to 3 couples, with 1 special collection case presented to each couple. To be redeemed before the end of 2023. Dates subject to restrictions, to be booked depending on availability at least 60 days in advance. Transfers not included.
