One of my favorite Chanel scents (and the one that is my current daily scent) is Beige, part of Les Exclusifs de Chanel collection. If you’ve seen this collection exclusively at Chanel Boutiques (hence the name) then you know the size of these bottle is no joke. When I asked why the bottles were so big, the sales person noted that these scents were very light and made to be sprayed liberally – all over.
While the bottles are large enough to douse yourself lavishly with your favorite scent, they are not very practical to take with you on romantic getaways. Well, the Chanel gods have answered my prayers! Now four of Les Exclusifs – Beige, Sycamore, Eau de Cologne and Coromandel – are available in 2.5 fluid ounce petits flacons (the regular size is a whopping 6.8 fluid ounces). The one catch is that you get less than half the scent for more than half the price. It doesn’t make much economic sense but it is Chanel after all. You can buy the petits flacons at Chanel boutiques and online at Chanel.com.
