Beauty and Magic in the Making Chanel Perfume No 5


Making the essence of a perfume involves scientific knowledge and artistic qualities.

To come up with a wonderful combination that can transport our mind to a sublime paradise by using the sense of smell, requires an intellect of a genius.

Flowers are essential. In addition to flowers, also fruits, spices, resins, leaves, gums, balsams, and even grasses are used to make a perfume.

High-end luxury brands, such as Chanel, for instance, own their own flower fields to make sure they have enough product, with high quality for their perfumes.
