All three perfumes are definitely the last word in smells. Another 1921 bottle, tiny square stopper (not faceted), smaller and now with sharper corners, short neck, thin walls. The 1.4 oz Refillable Spray bottle used for the Chanel No.
The set called "Three Moods" is priced at .75." #1. 5 Eau de Parfum was introduced in 1986 with the debut of the Eau de Parfum.
"Real perfume is mysterious, but the perfume which many women use is not mysterious. Chanel's exquisite fragrances in the form of colognes is the thing to wear.
” I like roses, and the smell of the rose is very beautiful, but I do not want a woman to smell like a rose." "We were pleased to discover that there is a recent arrival.
In a marketing brochure issued in 1924, "Parfums Chanel" described the vessel, which contained the fragrance: "the perfection of the product forbids dressing it in the customary artifices. Mademoiselle is proud to present simple bottles adorned only by ...precious teardrops of perfume of incomparable quality, unique in composition, revealing the artistic personality of their creator." Unlike the bottle, which has remained the same since the 1924 redesign, the stopper has gone through numerous modifications.

In 1920, when presented with small glass vials containing sample scent compositions numbered 1 to 5 and 20 to 24 for her assessment, she chose the fifth vial.
Chanel told her master perfumer, Ernest Beaux, whom she had commissioned to develop a fragrance with modern innovations: "I present my dress collections on the fifth of May, the fifth month of the year and so we will let this sample number five keep the name it has already, it will bring good luck." Chanel envisioned a design that would be an antidote for the over-elaborate, precious fussiness of the crystal fragrance bottles then in fashion popularized by Lalique and Baccarat.
In 1924, Chanel made an agreement with the Wertheimer brothers, Pierre and Paul, directors of the eminent perfume house Bourjois since 1917, creating a corporate entity, "Parfums Chanel." The Wertheimers agreed to provide full financing for production, marketing and distribution of Chanel No. The Wertheimers would receive a seventy percent share of the company, and Théophile Bader, founder of the Paris department store, Galeries Lafayette, would receive twenty percent.
Bader had been instrumental in brokering the business connection by introducing Chanel to Pierre Wertheimer at the Longchamps races in 1922.
