Chanel was founded by Gabrielle Chanel, also known as Coco Chanel - a name she adopted while performing as a singer, and was originally best known for hats and later for relaxed fashions. Today the company is famous for Chanel handbags. The iconic Chanel suits did not come along until after the war in 1954. The first Chanel perfume was introduced in 1921, Chanel No 5, followed by a range of exquisite Parfums, eau de parfum, eau de toilette and aftershaves. The range consists of Chanel No 19, Chanel Coco, Chanel Coco Mademoiselle, Chanel Chance, Chanel Allure and Bleu De Chanel.
