Christmas is fast approaching, and with it comes the pressures of the season – what plans to make, where to go and what to buy your loved ones. But if you’re someone who doesn’t get overwhelmed by the holiday season and instead loves the anticipation of this time of year, advent calendars are probably one of your favorite features of the season. If that’s the case then you might be interested in Chanel’s new addition to their store, their very own Chanel advent calendar. Just be sure you have a decently sized pot of gold sitting in your savings account.

Harper’s Bazaar reports that Chanel will be releasing their advent calendar on Friday through Harrod’s and the brand’s own website. The gift set will have a whopping price tag of $825 and includes 27 Chanel and Christmas-themed items, one of which will be the brand’s signature N°5 perfume. Even though the price is eye-watering, it seems to have been greeted with open arms – at the time of writing, the website is completely sold out of the calendars and it seems unlikely that a restock is on the way.
The calendar has been cleverly crafted to appear as a Chanel perfume bottle. Behind each day on the calendar there is a small gift tucked away to make the countdown to Christmas that much more glamorous and exciting. The secrets inside can be kept as a surprise if you so choose, but if you’re someone who prefers to avoid the mystery aspect of the advent calendar you can see the items it contains on the Chanel website.
Some of the gifts inside include Chanel’s skincare products, make-up, jewelry, and perfumes. Mixed in with the high-end gifts there are also smaller and cheaper trinkets like Christmas ornaments and stickers.
