Scented Splendor: Unveiling the Mystique of Chanel® N°5

Who would have thought that Marilyn Monroe's famous words in an interview, "What do you wear to bed?" would start a trend that would never go out of fashion? With a legacy that now spans nearly a century, Chanel ® N°5 has entrenched its position as a timeless icon in the world of fragrance. Chanel® N°5 is the legacy of Coco Chanel, which is the insignia of womanhood, elegance, and the glamor of perfume. It is etched in history that Coco Chanel® was the first to bring together: the woman, the dress, and the perfume. Fast forward over a century, and her magnum opus, Chanel® N°5, still reigns as the world's best-selling and most renowned fragrance. From its intriguing history to its luxurious price tag, captivating fragrance notes, and the best dupe option for Chanel® N°5, this blog will take you on a riveting journey of Chane ® N°5.

History of Chanel® N°5

Unbelievable as it may sound, Chanel® N°5 celebrated its 100th anniversary on May 5th, 2021. But it all began with Coco Chanel's chance encounter with Russian perfumer Ernest Beaux, a war refugee turned artist, that sparked the creation of this legendary perfume. Among a series of fragrances made by Beaux that had numbers for names, Coco Chanel® handpicked the fifth one, saying, "I present my dress collection on May 5th, the fifth month of the year so that we will leave the name of it N°5, and this number 5 will bring it good luck, and then like it was said, the rest is history.

While most fragrances of the time relied on a single flower's essence, Coco Chanel® desired a modern, multifaceted perfume for women. Consequently, crafting a single bottle of Chanel® N°5 requires a thousand handpicked jasmine flowers. As groundbreaking as its scent, the perfume's bottle design also challenged convention. Breaking away from ornamental shapes, the sleek square bottle, adorned with a black-lacquered stamp and sharp typography, stood out in its uniqueness.

As one would expect from a fragrance of such fame, Chanel® N°5 comes with a luxury price tag. The cost of Chanel® N°5 varies depending on the size and concentration of the bottle. Generally, a 50ml bottle of Chanel® N°5 Eau de Parfum can range from $80 to $120, while a larger 100ml bottle may cost between $120 and $180. The price reflects not only the exceptional quality of the fragrance but also the heritage and exclusivity associated with the Chanel® brand.
