Chanel "Art of Layering" Event

Chanel is currently having a special launch event on at KLCC Centre Court until 6th May.

Their setups always amaze me, no exaggeration here. Even if you aren't interested in their fragrance or skincare I would recommend just taking a stroll around their beautiful event area. No pictures as I was too engrossed with talking to their fragrance specialist and had to rush off somewhere else after that.

RSVPed for the event and asked my sister along for an afternoon of discovery and pampering. I found the session very interesting as we were led through the history of Coco Mademoiselle by Jean Loy, Chanel Fragrance Specialist who came in specially from Singapore. 

I picked up the limited edition Gentle Body Exfoliant, which has the same scent as the Coco Mademoiselle perfume which I already use. What I like about this scrub is that the exfoliating bits are made of clear jojoba jelly-ish beads (they resemble little bubbles in the jar) which do not dissolve and isn't harsh on the skin.

My sister and I were lucky to have Jean introduce and explain the different perfumes in the Les Exclusifs range personally. She did urge us to take the Personalised Perfume Journey but unfortunately we were pressed for time. Besides perfume talk, we also chatted about macarons, travels and how much we enjoyed the other's home country fare. 

Jean is based in Chanel (beauty) Marina Bay Sands, and I will definitely be taking up her offer for the olfactive tour when I visit Singapore again (I was just there recently). Thank you, Jean for the informative session and additional gifts for us!

Each attendee also left with a appreciation gift; some travel sizes of the Re-Energizing range, a Les Beiges BB Cream as well as a perfume vial. There were also guys in suits hired to take pictures with the ladies (in line with the fragrance launch video).

Thank you Chanel for the opportunity to learn more about the Coco Mademoiselle fragrance and the story behind it.

This special launch event will be on until the 6th of May, do drop by the check out the setup and learn more about their offerings. 


  1. What a treat this event must've been for you. Chanel really knows how to take luxury to the next level.

    I agree with you that photoshop is just so needless at times! What a funny coincidence about the book. Hope you'll enjoy the book when it arrives. The movie kind of missed it's mark in picking up the heart of the story.

    Happy weekend Xen!

    1. Hi Rowena! It really was a treat! I always enjoy learning more about the story and philosophy behind a brand (especially one which I adore).

      Am still waiting on the book, once again thank you for the recommendation!
