When we think of the perfume industry one of the first names that comes to mind is that of Coco Chanel. True pioneering design perfume, certainly I was able to find throughout his life formula to market and distribute its fragrances worldwide. If there is a character whom we should attribute the creation of the perfume industry, this is Coco Chanel.I
Born in 1883, in a small French village. Just six years he was orphaned and went to an orphanage. It was in this same place where he learned to sew. By 1910 he opened the first clothing store in Paris, first in a string of hits that end emporium in the world we know.I
The truly revolutionary clothing Coco was that was intended for a woman who looked to be comfortable but fashionable, throughout the day, on the street, at parties, in privacy. Such was the success of her clothing line that allowed him to live for 30 years in the Hotel Ritz in Paris.I
In 1923 he ventured into the design of perfumes. Its perfumers presented him with five bottles numbered from 1 to 5 to choose your favorite Coco. Cocó selected number five, marking the birth of a success that would last more than 80 years.I
Coco worked 30 years in the perfume industry until he managed to impose their fragrances. Is famous anecdote that starred Marilyn Monroe when a reporter asked bed wearing "just a couple of drops of Chanel No. 5". It's final push to exploit this perfume sales, consolidating the company and consecrating the world leader in the fashion industry.I
The year 1971 witnessed the death of Coco, who died alone in her Paris apartment and was eventually buried in Switzerland. Fortunately this did not mark the end of Chanel industries. The design of an extremely simple but incredibly elegant black dress has left for posterity as the best that women can dress for a party. So, year after year, on the red carpet, we still see the models parading Chanel as a sign of delicacy and finesse of her sewing. Even today, over 80 years after the creation of its emblematic perfume, it remains one of the preferred by consumers, and has become synonymous with elegance and distinction.
