    The art of perfuming embodies the creation of humanity through Suskind’s novel, Perfume: The Story of a Murderer. The art of perfuming consists of three main stages of development, or dissipation, that must be acknowledged in order for the perfume to be successful.

    In 1939, Coco Chanel would suddenly decide to fire all 2,500 of her employees and closed up her businesses entirely. A clear explanation was never provided, but it could be a reaction to the start of the war or it could have been revenge for the strike that occurred three years prior.
