Chanel No. 5 Page 1
Does this mean Brad Pitt’s Chanel No. 5 ads are actually working? The house has just announced their newest offering: a bottle of the perfume in “its rarest, most collectible form,” that will set you back a cool $4,200. And feel free to spritz liberally with this one, since 30-ounces is a whole lotta scent to go around.
Brad Pitt may have told reporters just this week that he was “blissfully protected” from the numerous parodies of his Chanel No. 5 campaign while off on his travels. But now that he’s back in the good old U. S. of A., we can’t help but wonder if things have changed. They certainly have if he turned on Conan last night, since the comedian offered yet another in a slew of videos spoofing the dramatic, yet totally nonsensical script.
Brad Pitt‘s Chanel No. 5 campaign has been the butt of many jokes since it dropped last month, perplexing audiences with its rambling script and disheveled leading man, but as it turns out, the actor himself hasn’t seen any of the parodies.
Long before Brad Pitt entered the picture, Marilyn Monroe was the bold-faced name that instantly came to mind at the mention (or whiff, for that matter) of Chanel No. 5. The house today released lost audio footage of an interview the actress gave in April 1960 to Georges Belmont at French Marie Claire, along with a video chronicling the path of Monroe’s famous response to “What do you wear to bed?”
Chanel No. 5 is one of the most iconic fragrances of all time, but according to scientists at a European Union advisory committee, it might actually be harmful to our health.
Conan‘s done it (twice), Leif Garrett‘s done it, we’ve done it, hey — maybe you’ve even done it. Now the Saturday Night Live team has joined in the fun of spoofing Brad Pitt‘s now-infamous Chanel No. 5 campaign.
Are you ready for this jelly?
Brad Pitt‘s first ad for Chanel No. 5, which pretty much amounted to a black-and-white clip of the slightly unkempt-looking leading man reciting a poem to the fragrance, has garnered its fair share of ridicule since it was released on Monday, not least because the actor was reportedly paid $7 million for the spot. Mercifully, however, that was only the first of the ads.
It seems we are not alone in finding Brad Pitt‘s big money Chanel No. 5 commercial a little comical. Conan O’Brien poked fun at the black-and-white, Joe Wright-directed spot on his late night show yesterday, rechristening the fragrance “Brad Pitt’s Nonsensical Ramblings by Chanel.”
Brad Pitt is the first dude to ever front a Chanel No. 5 ad campaign, and as such, both he and the brand are clearly trying to make a big statement. So far, though, he’s just made us giggle.
The history of Chanel is one for the books — and the web.
Get ready, folks: your TV screens and magazines are about to get a whole lot handsomer. That’s right — those Chanel No. 5 ads that Brad Pitt was shooting back in May are set to be unveiled by mid-October.
Yes, Brad Pitt is the new face of Chanel No. 5.
For some people, a face really is a canvas, one to which many different types of unguents, colors and shine can and should be applied daily — and then washed off with a non-comedogenic facial cleanser, of course. Your beauty lover‘s needs are sure to be sated with the gifts in this guide.
Why is Chanel No. 5 still one of the world’s most important fragrances? Apparently, it’s a Jersey thing. A new book entitled The Secret History of Chanel No. 5 claims that while World War II raged across Europe, production of the famous scent had no choice but to move from Grasse, France to Hoboken, New Jersey.
Perfume junkies like me know that a transcendent juice can change your life. There are scents for work, scents for weekends…and then there are those scents that make you want to rip your clothes off and get down to business. Here are four of the best. And they’re not for the faint (or the floral) at heart…
Chanel No. 5, created in 1921, was Coco’s first fragrance and unlike most other perfumes, no changes have ever been made to alter its scent. It is estimated that that a bottle of the scent is sold every 55 seconds throughout world. The fragrance may have remained the same, but the advertising certainly hasn’t. Today’s Time Warp pays homage to five of our favorite Chanel No. 5 advertisements of all time.
