I do wish that I could tell you that this little piece of heaven was a permanent fixture in Covent Garden. Alas! This is just a taster for a three day pop-up over Mothering Sunday weekend in the UK. (Relax my non-UK readers: we celebrate our mamas on a different date from you.)
From Friday 8th March to Sunday 10th March, in celebration of Mothering Sunday, the CHANEL flower stall will be filled with the glorious flowers that are an integral part of the composition of CHANEL fragrances: May Rose, Jasmine, Iris, Tuberose and Patchouli. They won’t be for sale, but specialist fragrance experts will offer one-to-one olfactive consultations on the House’s extensive fragrances.
And if you buy a 100ml eau de parfum on your visit, you will receive a pretty hand tied posy using the flowers from CHANEL fragrances, as well as having a personalised message hand written by a CHANEL calligrapher on a Camellia embossed card, with a choice of quotes from Mademoiselle Chanel.
And you’ll be able to book a £25* makeup consultation with a choice of exclusive looks created by celebrity makeup artist, Mary Greenwell or a nail paint and polish, for £30* with a CHANEL expert. (*All bookings fees are redeemable against purchases made on the day.)
When I popped in on Wednesday for the press launch, we were given these beautiful roses to take home:
