Here's why Chanel's famous No 5 perfume could be no more

Say it ain't so.

If you want a classic perfume, opt for Chanel. Their No 5 bottle is iconic and has been one of the world's best selling perfumes for nearly 100 years.

But now it seems that the famous fragrance is under threat.

The area in which the perfume is created may be renovated to facilitate a new train route in the Grasse area.

Around 1,000 jasmine flowers are used to make a 30ml bottle the famous No 5 perfume.

The route would disrupt the flower fields used to produce the perfume.

In an open letter, the well known brand stated their dissatisfaction with the proposal.

"The construction of a viaduct and the regular passage of high-speed trains over these fields of flowers would force Chanel to cease supporting its artisanal activities in the region," They said.

However, the french railway company SNCF has said its whole network in the region is in dire need of investment and wants to route a TGV line through the area according to BBC.

If you're a fan of the perfume, maybe stock up on it now.
