Chanel is giving us yet another reason to put Paris on the top of our summer travel list! This year marks the 92nd birthday of the iconic Chanel No. 5 scent that has been worn and loved by so many women—Marilyn Monroe among them—and in celebration, the label is taking a retrospective look at the perfume’s story with a new exhibition titled No. 5 Culture Chanel at the Palais de Tokyo in Paris. The exhibit will be open Sunday, May 5 through June 5, and will tell the scent’s story through photographs, books, and numerous objects that served as inspiration for designer Coco Chanel as well as works of art created by Andy Warhol, Pablo Picasso, and Salvador Dali that were inspired by the fragrance. Now that’s one beautiful history lesson! Head over to to preview the exhibit from your screen. Plus, shop the timeless fragrance for $120 at
