C is for Chanel No. 5
Designer fragrances have fleeting lives: one summer a scent is a must-have, the next it is too strong, too sweet, too tacky. However one perfume has remained at No. 1 despite it's title of No. 5. Always glamorous, always alluring Chanel No. 5 has been a staple on many a woman's vanity chest for over eight decades. The dominance of jasmine in Coco Chanel's first perfume allowed the designer to achieve her aim of No. 5 being the most expensive fragrance on the market. Chanel enjoys a very high status, boasting the likes of Marilyn Monroe, Catherine Deneuve and Nicole Kidman as proud spokeswomen over the years. Ms. Chanel has spritzed a multitude of women in a timeless luxury and eternal glamour. Perfume caps off to that!
