Chanel No. 5 is one of the best known perfumes in the world. It was the first fragrance from Parisian couturier, Gabrielle "Coco" Chanel. Coco Chanel commissioned Ernest Beaux to make six perfumes. They were labelled No. 1, No. 2, etc. through No. 6. It was bottle No.5 that was to Chanel's liking and became the chosen formula. The number "5" was also her lucky number. 
In 1953, when asked what she wore in bed, Monroe famously replied, "Two drops of Chanel No. 5". Chanel herself is quoted as saying, "A woman should wear fragrance wherever she expects to be kissed."
