Fragrance

Quintessentially is launching it's very own fragrance this year! To spark some inspiration, I hunted around for the best fragrance campaigns in history, which of course led me to Chanel No.5.

Quoted on her first cover of Life magazine in 1952, when asked what she wears to bed Marilyn Monroe replied Chanel No.5.

'You know, they ask me questions. Just an example: ‘What do you wear to bed? A pyjama top? The bottoms of the pyjamas? A nightgown?’ So I said, ‘Chanel N°5’, because it’s the truth... And yet, I don’t want to say ‘nude’. But it’s the truth!'

It's amazing how over 50 years after her death Marilyn can still capture our hearts with her innocence and femininity.

Keep up with the latest news to follow our journey as we create our bewitching fragrance.
