This year, Chanel offers ancillary bath products so one can layer on the inimitable fragrance. The range includes a 200-ml foaming bath, 200-ml cleansing cream with rich lather, 150-gram bath soap, 200-ml body lotion that wraps the body in delicately scented veil, 100-ml deodorant spray and 40-ml hair mist that is gentle on the hair.

 

Chanel has also come out with a temporary edition of the fragrance’s intense bath oil in a 250-ml bottle. Just a few drops are all you need for your bath to take on a fragrant, milky appearance.
