In 1921, Gabrielle "Coco" Chanel created her first perfume: N° 5.

Chanel N° 5's air of mystery, exceptional composition, painstaking production and unique bottle revolutionized perfume codes of the time...and when Marilyn Monroe revealed that all she wore in bed was a few drops of Chanel N°5 and nothing else, the scent's popularity began to soar.

We take a look at a perfume that inspired and has been incarnated by the world's most beautiful women.
