I went into Macy's and realized my love has changed labels, the bottle is cheaply made (inclusions everywhere) and the fragrance..god..happened???
I thought Macy's had a counterfeit version so I made my way to Dillard's then to Nordstroms. No longer will you find "Made in France" here in the states unless you venture to e Bay.
Chanel N°5 is often connected to her name because during an interview in 1954 she said that in bed she wore only ‘some drops of Chanel N°5'. Superstitious, Chanel presented her new perfume on the fifth day of the fifth month of 1921.
That statement became a superb advertising slogan and a reason for millions of women around the world to choose this perfume. Ernest Beaux created two series of perfume samples numbered 1-5 and 20-24 and asked Coco Chanel to choose one of them. Working on creation of this perfume, Ernest Beaux created and for the first time used the synthetic component – aldehydes.
Recently I can see the revival of Marilyn Monroe cult and Chanel 5 is must have in fashionistas collection even though all of them admit they wear it randomly *backstage laugh* Just like MM poster on the wall and Christmas lights in the background all year round, Chanel 5 bottle is part of decor. Actress and perfume are rather mediocre and has become famous just because of good media promotion.
I was gifted this for my birthday and I keep it just to have a reference for classic perfumes.
Famous Chanel N°5 is a symbol of good taste and is currently one of the best selling perfumes in the world.
Coco Chanel asked the perfume designer Ernest Beaux to create a perfume ' which smells like a woman'.It may not agree with your nose or your taste, but at least have some respect for it.If it wasn't for N*5, there's a good chance the fragrance industry wouldn't be what it is today.The first Chanel N°5 was captured in a simple rectangular bottle with the top which resembled Place Vendome in Paris.The first bottle was designed by Chanel herself and represents her classical principle – the less is more.It is said that the famous creator drew his inspiration for creation of this fragrance from one of his visits to the Arctic Circle and the smell of water in midnight.
