Gabrielle Chanel born in Saumur, France on the 18th August 1883, brought up in an orphanage. She established a fashion shop in Deauville France. She then moves the shop to 31 rue Cambon, Paris in 1918. The perfume of Chanel No. 5 was internationally popular with women of high society in particular. La Société des Parfums Chanel was founded in 1924 to produce and sell perfumes and beauty products. Reportedly, the signature scent was a result of her belief in superstitions. She was scheduled to show her collection on the fifth day of the fifth month. In 1924, Pierre Wertheimer and his brother Paul became Coco Chanel’s partners in the House of Chanel perfume business. Two years before, in 1922, the perfume Chanel No. 5 had been introduced and Ms Chanel needed the Wertheimers’ extensive experience in commerce, their American business connections, and their capital to fully develop and market the product. During their partnership, Wertheimer owned 70% of the Chanel perfume company. Chanel owned 10% and Chanel’s friend, Théophile Bader, owned the remaining 20%.
