This advent calendar, designed by a luxury designer, was launched to celebrate its 100th Anniversary in October. However fashion lovers began to take notice as TikTok users uploaded videos showing the inside. 

Elise Harmon, who goes by the username @eliseharmon on TikTok, has racked up over 14.7 million views so far for her first unboxing video, and has gone on to spotlight what’s behind each door of the calendar – including a mirror, a plastic bracelet, and a paperweight.

While many viewers imagined that such a pricey gift would include high end products, critics have slammed Chanel and accused the company of ‘scamming’ their customers for charging more than $800 for a ‘box of junk.’

Elise Harmon shared some videos of herself unboxing each day of the advent calendar to TikTok, and she quickly went viral

Elise Harmon uploaded videos in which she unboxed each day from the TikTok Advent Calendar. These videos quickly gained traction.

‘Am I crazy? Yes, I am. But, let’s not forget that Chanel’s advent calendar is something new to me. Elise shared a video in which she unpacked the calendar. It was the size of a large bottle of perfume. 

“I think we’ll give them 10/10 for the packaging.” 

It went from there down. Strangely enough, the boxes start at number 5 instead of one and climb up to number 31 instead. 

Number nine seemed ‘promising’, as the package was quite large. So she opened that first.

Elise wasn’t happy when she discovered that it was just a sheet with stickers with the logo of the company.

She said, “This is a joke.” ‘Stickers?’

Because she was upset by the situation, she decided to open another tube in hopes of finding something better. The hand cream was small and she opened it again.

She said that Number eight really called her name until she opened the bag. Then, she held up a smaller, leather pull-string bag with Chanel’s logo (pictured). I can’t believe it!

Another user added, “The audacity and stickers.” One user added, “These are the samples you get for free when you order from us.”

Another person said that $850 was used for packaging and $25 went to everything else.

Elise kept posting more videos in which she opened each day.

She stated, “I was just checking in to let everybody know that Chanel has blocked me. They blocked me. Chanel! What isn’t clicking? Something’s wrong.’

People began to respond immediately to the post in the comments section. One wrote: “Bestie! This must be stuff that they found in the warehouse.”

“Girl, you must return the junk …’ box. One final message. 

Charles Gross (another TikToker) responded to Elise’s videos, calling the items “less than satisfactory.” 

He said, “If this Chanel advent calendar was to be purchased without seeing its contents either on the Chanel website or elsewhere online, it would leave me severely disappointed.”

“My greatest question is: What was Chanel thinking when it came to the price?” Although the advent calendar looks great, I don’t think that it is a good idea. It could be used as promotional merchandise at pop-ups or cost between $50 and $100.

He captioned the video, “This is not okay.”
