This book gave me a complete and fresh idea of Chanel No. 5 history, from the time of its creation until it became a huge success.
Mazzeo's writing is simple so one can understand some things like the production of a fragrance since its creation until it is out in the market for sales.
The reports of Coco Chanel's life and the detailed description of the facts that occurred at that time (since the 1920's) gives us a full picture of what that fragrance went through to become a legendary scent.
If you are a fanatic perfume lover such as I, then you owe to yourself to read and finally learn of how some perfumes where created. The writer has transferred to me her passion of an understandable and incredible reading, meaning to me a worth-reading book!
