Note: Please understand that this website is not affiliated with the Chanel company in any way, it is only a reference page for collectors and those who have enjoyed the Chanel fragrances.

The goal of this website is to show the present owners of the Chanel company how much we miss the discontinued classics and hopefully, if they see that there is enough interest and demand, they will bring back the perfume!

Please leave a comment below (for example: of why you liked the perfume, describe the scent, time period or age you wore it, who gave it to you or what occasion, any specific memories), who knows, perhaps someone from the company might see it.

Marilyn Monroe's Chanel Cologne Bottle

You've all seen that famous photo of Marilyn Monroe and that bottle of Chanel perfume, but were unsure of what the bottle actually looks like? Well it is Chanel No. 5 Eau de Cologne in the ovoid bottle, not the square bottle.

Vintage 1920s Fake Chanel Perfume Bottle

Vintage 1920s perfume bottle with a beautiful frosted glass stopper molded with an image of moths. The bottle appears to be a copy of a Rene Lalique bottle used for Coty perfumes in the 1920s-1930s. I can tell that it is not an actual Lalique made piece as the stopper is not as finely molded as a genuine example and the sides of the stopper lack the extra details found on the originals. This may have been a bottle made by Coty's own glassworks for one of their perfumes.

The bottle has a fake Chanel paper label affixed to the front. Please note that Chanel NEVER used these type of bottles or the style of paper label shown.
