today I felt like someone, who MUST asking its mum about her parfum.
I had to know, what kind of parfum it is.
And I've got a surprise:
It's very very old, she told me.
She got it in the 90th from her mum, so...
It holded over 20 years! And it smells so lovely! *-*
some quotations: (www.fragrantica.com)
The perfume became famous thanks to many celebrities who wore it, among which Marilyn Monroe. Chanel N°5 is often connected to her name because during an interview in 1954 she said that in bed she wore only ‘some drops of Chanel N°5'. That statement became a superb advertising slogan and a reason for millions of women around the world to choose this perfume. The current Chanel N°5 face is Nicole Kidman.
Ernest Beaux created two series of perfume samples numbered 1-5 and 20-24 and asked Coco Chanel to choose one of them. Madame Chanel chose the sample no. 5 and thus the perfume got its name. Superstitious, Chanel presented her new perfume on the fifth day of the fifth month of 1921.
In his formula the aldehydes are accompanied by fragrances of rose and jasmine. The fragrance of aldehydes is pure and fresh, reminds of the odor of clean linen just brought in the house form the fresh frosty air. It is said that the famous creator drew his inspiration for creation of this fragrance from one of his visits to the Arctic Circle and the smell of water in midnight. The unique smell of frozen lakes and rivers fascinated him so much that he decided to replicate it in his creation.
My mum kept it for about 20 years, because she got it from her mum and SHE got it in Saudi Arabia...
So my mum thinks that she shouldn't wear it often.
( the beginning of a passion)
I hope you had a nice day!
