Chanel No. 5 is the most popular perfume of all time.
Since its inception in 1921, the perfume has been used by women all over the world. Chances are, you, your mother, or even grandmother, have had the iconic fragrance at some point.
Now, Chanel has embraced the world of viral videos and released their own clip, explaining the history of the famous fragrance. The documentary-style short film spans everything from bottle design to the recent announcement of Brad Pitt as the first male spokesperson.
Thanks to the video, we now know the perfume’s name was chosen because Coco Chanel picked the fifth sample that was given to her, as well as because of the magical qualities she believed the number 5 had.
