The Story Behind Chanel No. 5 On The BBC

Last week, the BBC posted a radio segment and article on the story behind Chanel No.5.  If you haven’t heard it I would definitely give it a listen below.  The iconography and branding of Chanel No.5 is one of my favorites – of any product – so I put together some of my favorite Chanel No.5 images.  Some are vintage ads, some are product shots, some are works of art inspired by the fragrance.  Enjoy!
