The Influence of a Decanter

As I was nestled in bed last night with  my nose in The Secret of Chanel No. 5 by Tilar J. Mazzeo I stumbled upon a fun fact!  According to Gabrielle “Coco” Chanel’s close friend, the bottle design of Chanel No. 5 was inspired by her lover, Captain Arthur Edward ‘Boy’ Capel’s whiskey decanter!  Chanel No. 5 is one of if not the most iconic fragrances ever created and to think its design showcases how influential whisk(e)y has been in pop culture.

Stay tuned for a post on the similarities between fragrance and whisk(e)y.  Cheers!
