I love how it is described on the chanel.com website………………
“N°5 works its powerful magic by enveloping women in a subtle cloud of elegance and sophistication. Whenever they wear this symbol of femininity, women express their seductiveness moment after magical moment.With its links to Andy Warhol and Marilyn Monroe, its Ylang-Ylang from the Comoros and its Grasse Jasmine, N°5 remains the greatest and best known perfume in the world. This timeless classic, both contemporary and unusual, remains the absolute benchmark of feminine fragrances, entrancing, elegant and always modern.
Known to all women and yet belonging to each individual, this abstract olfactory bouquet was the first of its kind to blend floral essences and aldehydes in these proportions. Aldehydes originate in the chemistry of synthesis and bring a new lightness to natural raw materials.
This is what gives N°5 its modernity, its classicism and its simplicity. « Alléger, supprimer, ne garder que l'essentiel, tel est le secret de l'intemporel », « The secret of timelessness is to simplify, to pare down, to keep only what is essential » in the words of the woman behind its creation.”
I love Marilyn Monroe’s quote…………………..
What do I wear in bed? Why, Chanel No.5, of course!
And I adore Nicole Kidman in Baz Luhrman’s oh so lavish No. 5 advertisement…………
