Chanel No 5

To follow my Shalimar print,  I have added a Chanel No 5 print (5 in. x 7 in.) for my Etsy shop.

Chanel No. 5 was the first perfume launched by Coco Chanel in 1921.  It is a timeless classic created by Earnest Beaux.  It was the first perfume ever created using so much Aldehydes, which gives the fragrance its sparkle.  It is said, when Beaux presented Coco Chanel with ten fragrances to choose from, she chose perfume number five.

Top notes:  Ylang - ylang, Neroli, Aldehydes
Middle notes:  Jasmine, Mayrose
Base notes: - Sandalwood, vetiver
