BACKGROUND Designer Gabrielle Bonheur Chanel founded Chanel in Paris, France. She adapted the name “Coco Chanel” and opened her first store, which was partly for hat making. Mademoiselle Chanel introduced modern day fashion to the wealthy conservatives of the early 19th-century accommodating to the Parisian style of sophistication and class.

Chanel No. 5, launched in 1921, has become a historical staple of the brand as it established the foundation for the designer to create other beauty products further developing Chanel’s fragrance, makeup and skincare lines.
