Not much can be added to what has already been stated about Chanel No. 5. This timeless classic continues to be a best-seller, even a century after its introduction in 1921.
Developed by perfumer, Ernest Beaux, No. 5 was a pioneer in the world of perfumes as it was the first fragrance to utilize a substantial amount of aldehydes, which gave the scent its sparkle. The tale goes that Beaux presented Chanel with a selection of ten fragrances, and she chose the fifth one, thus earning it the name Chanel No. 5.
Over the years, Chanel No. 5 has been embraced by some of the world's most famous women, including Marilyn Monroe, who famously declared that she wore nothing to bed but a few drops of the fragrance. The perfume has also been featured in countless films, advertisements, and other forms of media, cementing its place in popular culture. Today, Chanel No. 5 remains one of the most popular fragrances in the world, and continues to be a symbol of elegance and style.
