Despondent with the nature of the fragrances that the Wertheimers were offering in her name through their recently printed Chanel, Inc. organization in the USA, in 1945, Gabrielle took matters into her own hands.
In the wake of finding a little perfumer in Switzerland to deliver her new scents utilizing the remainder of her crude materials, she began another aroma line individually and started making a line of focused aromas, in view of the firsts.
