Beautiful Perfume Advertisements – Chanel N°5 Movie #3

Here is another Chanel N°5 commercial, this time featuring Estella Warren as Little Red Ridinghood.

This is very surreal. Estella is beautiful as can be and the music is perfect. But I wonder what it is, the ad wants to tell us.

What do you think?

  1. LOVE THIS AD! Excellent. She is SO in charge. Do you think she is taking Granny some No. 5? Are she and the wolf in cahoots? Oh NOOOO it was just a lovely clip now I have to think.

    Maybe the suggestion is that if you wear chanel no 5 you will be able to tame wolves, I know we all believe in the power of perfume but even that would be a stretch. She does look stunning though, if only we could put a dash of chanel on and be turned magically into beautiful woman that can tame wolves.;-)

    Chanel ads are among the best in the perfume sector, It’s a pity, that the video commercials air only before Christmas time I’m Europe

  4. Oh gosh I haven’t seen this ad in years, I love it!

    Imagine having a wall of No 5 Extrait? Me want!

    It’s nice, it’s sexy. The big bad wolf can’t have her ! Sooo in charge. But, then … what is the point of putting on perfume, any perfume …? To impress ? Or, rather, to share …

    This is my favorite perfume ad.

    The modernity, exclusivity, and wealth of a wall of No. 5 in your high-tech, gold-lined vault; the ineffable femininity of this particular treasure (she takes it right down and rubs it on her flawless young neck); the wolf that lurks in the background can never be more than the slightest frisson of the pleasure of fright, because he is immediately tamed by the gorgeous young woman armed with No. 5; he will wait on her pleasure, within the vault/house, until she chooses to return. After all, he’s only a wolf. He’s practically a pet; the world, snowing or not, is at her feet.

      Thank you for your thoughts. I think maybe it is also subtly implied that Chanel 5 is not your Grandmother’s perfume… 🙂

      Oh that’s good. You’ve made sense of this ad for me. In the past I have never liked it because I just found it too puzzling. A failure in my part, I now see.

      No 5 is a ‘return-to’ favourite of mine and I have it in many forms. The body creme is truly wonderful, I wore it last night. Works on its own as a perfume, without a doubt. My problem is, can I afford to replace it when it runs out? It was a huge splurge when I bought it. I think I shall have to afford it somehow, even if I have to live in lentils for two weeks!

      • unseencenser says:

        You know, I’ve tried very few body creams, and I keep hearing how wonderful they are for scents that are sometimes too “big” to wear every day. I bet your No. 5 body cream was a great investment for you, I hope you get to buy some more!
        And I doubt there’s any “failure” on your part; the ad is designed to be dizzying and evocative more than it is designed to make sense, no? 🙂

        • annemariec says:

          Thanks, yes, I should not try and over-analyse!

          Not all cream versions of fragrances necessarily work, I find, but the Chanels are great. As is so often the case, they put a fair bit of money into the product and don’t compromise.
