If love had a perfume, it would be Chanel no. 5 — An uplifting story to mend a broken heart.
Is possible to be like one of the greatest fashion icons — independent, beautiful and elegant as Coco Chanel? Rebecca is thirty-three years old and has a wardrobe full of tweed trouser suits and a boundless passion for the splendid Coco. She is romantic, dreamy, and madly in love with Niccolò, whom she is about to join in Milan, after a year being together long distance.
But as soon as she gets to Milan, Niccolò confesses to her that he has fallen in love with another woman. So Rebecca finds herself in a city she doesn't know and with a broken heart. How would her idol, the great Coco, have reacted?
After spending several days confined to her flat, Rebecca plunges herself into the intense Milanese social life, and with the stylishness of her heroine, savours the feeling of being a desirable woman. Will she remain an eternal mademoiselle, like the ageless Coco? Or does destiny have unexpected surprises in store for her?
