Chanel's Holiday Advent Calendar Disappoints Many


Looks like some folks didn’t wait until Christmas (or even December) to unwrap the gifts in Chanel’s Advent Calendar. To mark the 100th anniversary of its Chanel No. 5 perfume, Chanel issues a calendar numbered from 5 to 31. Like a traditional advent calendar, each ‘window’ opens with a ‘gift.’ Although Chanel says you can “discover” a new CHANEL product every day: fragrance, makeup, miniatures and gifts inspired by the world of N°5″, many are disappointed with the merchandise.

While the idea is certainly appealing – if you get beyond the price tag of nearly $1000 – customers are expressing disappointment. They say there are only about five real Chanel items and the rest are trinkets – like stickers and bookmarks. IG is not kind to this one, nor is a recent article in Jing Daily.

What do you think? Were you hoping to find this under your tree?
