When you think of perfumes, to most women, the first thing that comes up in their mind is none other than Coco Chanel’s Chanel No. 5.
Why did Coco called her perfume Chanel No. 5 and not number 1, 2 or 3…? Apparently Coco’s favourite number was number 5. So much so that the perfume was launched on 5th May (5th Month of the year) 1921.
It is such a timeless fragrance, so luxurious and expensive smelling. It has hints of vanilla, rose and jasmine.
It is quite expensive but not the most expensive perfume in the market but it is always been a best seller. No girl in their right mind would turn down a Chanel No 5. Would you? I wouldn’t!!!
When Coco Chanel was asked where one should wear perfume…
“Wherever one wants to be kissed.”
Chanel No 5 – Ultimate Favourite
Marilyn Monroe was probably the most famous endorser of the scent. When she was asked what she wore in bed, expecting her to say a pajama top of just the pajamas or a sexy negligée, Marilyn blurted “Chanel No. 5”
Actually it is also Peter’s favourite. He buys it for me all the time.
