Gabrielle Bonheur "Coco" Chanel (19 August 1883 – 10 January 1971) was a French fashion designer and businesswoman. The founder and namesake of the Chanel brand, she was credited in the post-World War I era with popularizing a sporty, casual chic as the feminine standard of style, replacing the "corseted silhouette" that was dominant beforehand. A prolific fashion creator, Chanel extended her influence beyond couture clothing, realizing her design aesthetic in jewellery, handbags, and fragrance. Her signature scent, Chanel No. 5, has become an iconic product. She is the only fashion designer listed on Time magazine's list of the 100 most influential people of the 20th century. Chanel herself designed her famed interlocked-CC monogram, which has been in use since the 1920s.

Coco Chanel passed away when she was 71 because of a heart attack. I actually heard of her perfume so much longer before i even knew who she was XD it`s funny! :)

Chanel No 5 was called Chanel No 5 because she had a taste for simplicity. Although the perfume itself is very complicated, Chanel wanted to avoid everything fancy when it came to her bottle and perfume name. So the bottle of chanel no 5 that we see now and its name were chosen by her for the simplicity of it.

chanelz favorite number was 5 so they decided 2 call it chanel no 5

cNov 30, 2008

chanel called the most famous perfume in the world no.5 because the person who sold her the perfume(which is now a family business and his family is currently running chanels fragrance line) was giving her samples and it was the fifth one in line, plus it was the fifht day of may and they did this transaction right before her fall/winter show. which was a huge success and is what started her career!
