THE SECRET OF CHANEL NO. 5
THE SECRET OF CHANEL NO. 5: The Intimate History of the World's Most Famous Perfume. It's by Tilar J. Mazzeo and narrated by Liz de Nesnera, available at Audible. It reveals the history of the perfume, and perfumes in general, along with much intriguing backstory related to Coco. In the movie we see Coco, played by French actress Anna Mouglalis, actually choosing the scent from among hundreds presented to her. "There are over eighty ingredients," says the perfumer. "I want to smell like a woman, not a rose," Coco had instructed him.
