Happy Birthday, Miss Chanel

Among my favorite things in the world that are Chanel is the fragrance of Chanel No. 19.  Released to the public just months before her death, it is named for her birth date and I've heard rumors from inside the industry that it was Coco's own signature fragrance.  I wonder.  
Yet another of the Chanel mysteries.

Born 128 years ago today,  August 19, 1883

Oh, and a touch of No. 19.
