Say what now!?
According to the author of The Secret History of Chanel No. 5 the perfume used to be manufactured in New Jersey!
Thanks to World War II, Coco Chanel had no choice but to smuggle her materials across the Atlantic to Chanel No. 5's temporary new home in Hoboken.
Once the war was over Coco, who called the whole ordeal "monstrous", hightailed it back to France where production is still going on.
