Chanel #5

I was toodling around on the interwebs, reading other blogs, and came across a little post about Chanel, and her famous bottle design. It's always been said that it was designed to look like the shape of Place Vendome. I know from her biography that it was named no. 5, simply because it was the fifth fragrance created by her perfumer. The shape, I was never sure of, but accepted as truth. This lovely site, notcot.com does a nice job of google earth meets photoshop to illustrate. Thank you for clearing up the mystery!
