The newest face to represent Chanel No5 will be none other than Brad Pitt (according to The Perfume Shrine). An extraordinary development – I think it is great!
Going back in time, the seventies saw Catherine Deneuve (1973) as the face of Chanel N°5. An excellent pick. The best compliment I ever got (and that I treasure and remember fondly) was by the father of a dear friend. He said that I look like Catherine Deneuve (I have to say, this was at a wedding and I did look a bit better than usually).
Whether it is true or not, it doesn’t matter – I can certainly smell like her… 😉
“You don’t have to ask for it, he knows what you want… Chanel.”
Oh yes, please. (Tomorrow is Mother’s Day, and that is what this Mother wants. 😉 )
You spoil us. I hope you get spoiled rotten.
Aww, thanks! I hope so too (although I harbor no great illusions…). 😉
She is so damn sexy… this is by far my favorite Chanel ad, probably because she is also such a convincing actress. Hope you get Chanel No 5 for Mother’s Day (although I was under the impression you already own it … or are you hoping for another bottle?) 😀
Although I always think of you as looking like Grace Kelly, now that I’m looking up close at Catherine Deneuve’s eyes, I would agree with your friend’s father … in fact, I’m thinking Deneuve might be a closer fit. Do you speak French, B?
I’m hoping for No5 body products actually. 😉
I learned French in high school, but it would be an overstatement to say I speak the language. I can read most of it, and know how to pronounce, but that’s it. 🙂
I understand that Catherine Deneuve is quite a perfumista! I would love to try the sadly discontinued Deneuve and I read that Francis Kurkdjian first made Lumiere Noire as a bespoke scent for her before he started his own perfume brand.
I like the slightly melancholy air of this add.
She is apparently, she also loves Malle perfumes and wears many of them.
I have a decant of Deneuve (thanks to Suzanne) and it is a beautiful chypre.
You really DO look like Catherine Deneuve! Enjoy your Mother’s Day tomorrow and relax after all the stress of yesterday.
Looking forward to the coming week!
Thank you! Me too, can’t wait to see you again! 🙂
