Chanel No. 5 Was the Favorite Scent of Marilyn Monroe and Other Movie Stars from the 1950s

One of my favorite holiday ads features old black-and-while video footage of Marilyn Monroe during an interview. In the voice-over for the ad, Marilyn is quoted saying, "People are always asking me what I wear to sleep in ... you know, pajama tops, the bottoms of the pajamas, a nightgown or something else? Well, I just say Chanel No. 5. Because that's the truth and I don't want to say nude."

With her sweet, breathy voice, this is a classic, charming and someone sensual Marilyn Monroe interview.

For decades, Chanel No. 5 has been my own personal favorite perfume. It is sophisticated, elegant and smells simply wonderful. It is not overly fruity nor too musky an aroma. It has become my signature perfume ... whether I am wearing jeans or dressed for a formal dinner party. It's perfect for every occasion.

If you are looking for a truly classy gift to give the woman you love, try Chanel No. 5.

In addition to its wonderful aroma, this iconic scent will assure her that you think she is someone very special.

Chanel No. 5 is available as an eau de Parfum, Eau de Toilette Spray, Eau de Parfum Spray, body lotion, and after bath powder. As a result, prices can range from around $85 to nearly $200 depending on the size and the product your choose.

Chanel also produces a variety of other perfumes and products. Although all of them are top of the line with wonderful aromas, none of them are as famous as No. 5. Who would have thought that a product that is known only by its number could become so instantly recognizable?

If you are hesitant and are not absolutely certain that the special woman in your life will like the scent, you can even purchase sample sizes from Amazon for a fraction of the price of a full size bottle. There's no reason not to make Chanel No. 5 a part of her life.

      I love Channel No. 5. This would be a great gift for Valentine's Day too, or any day. The body lotion is great too.
