    Nazi, jew hater.

    No denying she was talented though.Pierre and Paul Wertheimer became Chanel's partners in 1924 after backing the full financial and production costs of the revolutionary No 5 scent.But never satisfied with how ownership and profits were divided, she became involved with an aristocratic Abwehr spymaster called Hans G√ľnther von Dincklage - who was 13 years younger than her. She agreed to help German intelligence operations in exchange for Von Dincklage promising to try and strip the Wertheimers of their perfume ownership.
    Chanel used Aryan laws that stripped Jewish people of their property rights under Nazi rule.The brothers escaped and lived in exile in New York, where they had started to re-start production of the perfume.Unfortunately for her however, the pair had already transferred ownership to a Christian friend, Felix Amiot. But she persisted, maintaining in 1941 that the sale was fake and that she should regain full property rights. To her death bed she never did win the suit, and the Amiot family still owns Chanel N5.

    1. That's why I love Chanel No. 5--smells amazing (on some women) and it is a symbol of justice and success, one of the very few and rare instances, where the persecuted and oppressed overcame and succeeded.
