Gabrielle Chanel was born in 1883 in the Loire Valley of western France and grew up in poverty. Her mother died when she was 11, after which her father, an itinerant laborer, sent her and her two sisters to the Catholic Aubazine convent-orphanage, where the sisters remained until they moved to a Catholic boarding house for girls in their teens.

After the war, Chanel spent her remaining years the same way she had prior to meeting Dincklage: living luxuriously and dressing the rich and famous. By the mid-1950s, Chanel was designing again. She died on January 10, 1971, at the Ritz in Paris, where she had resided for most of her life. She was never questioned about her relationship with Dincklage, nor was her collaboration with the German Abwehr brought to light during her lifetime.

Many people ask us what makes our oils so much different from the competition and the facts are pretty basic. Many suppliers of fragrances dilute their product with cheaper carriers. This allows them to sell their product at prices that are sometime lower than our amazing wholesale price. However don't be fooled. In most cases you will need 5 to 10 times as much oil to get the same effect in your products. Our version of Coco Chanel Type fragrance oil can be used at .3%. That means that 1 of our .5oz. Coco Chanel Type fragrances can scent an entire gallon of our unscented bases. That is because our pure Coco Chanel Type oils are 100% pure. We never cut our products and that means we have the absolute best quality available anywhere online. This also ensures that our Coco Chanel Type oil will not negatively impact your final product. Many products have a salt curve and inferior grade fragrances can often break that salt curve and consequently break the viscosity of your product. Because our products are 100% pure, they are less likely to cause any issues with your final product.

Gabrielle Bonheur, a nun in the hospice where Chanel was born, was made her godmother, and so, according to Chanel, 'I was baptised Gabrielle Bonheur Chanel'. Gabrielle she stayed throughout her childhood - Coco was a creation that came later - although she invented a story that is revealing in its untruths: 'My father used to call me "Little Coco" until something better should come along,' she told Marcel Haedrich (editor-in-chief of Marie-Claire). 'He didn't like [the name] "Gabrielle" at all; it hadn't been his choice.' At times Gabrielle declared Coco to be an 'awful' name; and yet she was proud of its recognition throughout the world, evidence of her indisputable presence.

When Gabrielle turned 18 she left the nuns at Aubazine, who kept on only those girls with a religious vocation to join the order's novitiate. She was sent to the Notre Dame school in Moulins, a religious institution run by canonesses where her aunt Adrienne - only a year older than her - was already being educated. At the school she was given further instruction in how to sew, which had already formed a substantial part of her education at Aubazine.

The Mother Superior at Notre Dame found employment for Adrienne and Gabrielle as shop assistants and seamstresses in a draper's store on the rue de l'Horloge, which sold trousseaux and mourning clothes to the local gentry, as well as layettes for newborn babies. The girls shared an attic bedroom above the shop, and also worked at the weekends for a nearby tailor, altering breeches for cavalry officers. It was there that Gabrielle and Adrienne were spotted by half a dozen men, who started taking them out to La Rotonde, a pavilion in a park in Moulins, where concerts were held for audiences from the local barracks.

Chanel never talked about this episode of her life, other than to deny it to Paul Morand, dismissing it as foolish legend, along with the other stories in circulation: 'that I have come up from goodness knows where; from the music hall, the opera or the brothel; I'm sorry, for that would have been more amusing.' She did, however, mention the name of a cavalry officer, Etienne Balsan, who around this time was to become her lover.

There are many mysteries in the myth of Coco Chanel, but few more perplexing than her years with Etienne Balsan at Royallieu, a former abbey in Compiègne where he kept a racing stable. Balsan never gave away her secrets, however often he was questioned in later life, when Chanel was far more famous than him. In the drama of Chanel's life, Balsan has been cast as a rich playboy, the roué who introduced the little orphaned seamstress into the decadent world of the Belle Époque, deflowering her in an unsentimental education. While there may be some truth in this portrait, Chanel also used Balsan as a stepping stone from Moulins to Paris.

Coco dressed like a young convent girl or a schoolboy, and made hats that were stripped of embellishments, of the frills and furbelows that she dismissed as weighing a woman down, and being too cumbersome to let her think straight. They weren't entirely original - at first, she bought simple straw boaters from the Galeries Lafayette department store, and then trimmed them with ribbon - but they were chic. 'Nothing makes a woman look older than obvious expensiveness, ornateness, complication,' she said to Claude Delay in old age, still wearing the little straw hats of her youth. 'I still dress as I always did, like a schoolgirl.' And in doing so, Coco began to edge her way to the centre of attention, elbowing past her rivals and competitors, whether the society ladies or the cocottes or couturiers. (Paul Poiret, whose fame at the time was such that he dubbed himself the King of Fashion, said of Chanel's early days as a milliner, 'We ought to have been on guard against that boyish head. It was going to give us every kind of shock, and produce, out of its little conjuror's hat, gowns and coiffures and jewels and boutiques.') 041b061a72
