Céline Dion famously loves wearing Chanel No.5 which is well-suited to daytime wear. Chanel enlisted the talents of Russian perfumer Ernest Beaux to create a scent that “smells like a woman, not a flower bed.” Never one to conform to rules, Chanel wanted to offer women something that went beyond a soliflore – a scent made up of one or two simple notes – which was typical of the time. She wanted “an artificial fragrance like a dress, something crafted. I am a seamstress. I don’t want rose or lily-of-the-valley, I want a composed fragrance.” Today, a bottle of Chanel No. 5 is sold worldwide every 30 seconds.
