Happy Birthday Gabrielle Bonheur "Coco" Chanel!!

Today is not only my mother's birthday, (Happy Birthday Mom!) it is also the day that Gabrielle Bonheur Chanel, better known as Coco Chanel,  would have turned 128 years old! We can thank her for bringing modernity into the fashion world with her menswear inspired designs as well inventing her own personal fragrances. In honor of the French designer's birthday Chanel has updated the original Chanel No.19 perfume which consisted of iris, neroli, vetiver, and cedarwood No. 19  by adding notes of mandarin orange, jasmine absolute, white musk, and tonka bean. Chanel No. 19 Poudré went on sale this morning at Saks Fifth Avenue!
