When ask by reporters after marrying famed baseball great Joe Dimaggio what she wore to bed, Marilyn Monroe coyly reply “Chanel No. 5”. After hearing this as a young girl, I knew one day that I would have to own my own bottle of this Chanel No. 5. When I was in high school, I traveled with other elite French students to Paris and that is where I knew that I would purchase my first bottle. I was at the Galeries Lafayette in the middle of Paris where I summoned the courage to approach the Chanel counter. The French mademoiselles were very friendly and assisted me with what would be my first purchase of Chanel No. 5. I still have the empty bottle where I savored every last drop. This photo is my current collection of Chanel No.5 products.
