This review is from: The Secret of Chanel No. 5: The Intimate History of the World's Most Famous Perfume (Hardcover)
This book is fascinating. Fascinating is the right word. It not only tells us more about Coco Chanel herself which from a social history perspective is interesting, it also tells us a lot about marketing - or the lack of marketing. It is also a history of perfume, how perfumes are formulated and how a slight adjustment creates a new smell. Fascinating on so many levels this book is on my Christmas gift list.
