Fun Fashion Fact Friday: Take a whiff of this!


One of my favourite television commercials for a perfume has always been this Chanel No.5 advert with Nicole Kidman. Even though it is cheesy and rather dramatic, the long necklace that falls in the space of her backless dress gets me every time. There is just something so striking and elegant about the shot where she looks behind her. The fantasy and romantic elements also steal my heart.

The fun fact is that the modern era of perfume originated with the famous Chanel No.5 perfume from Coco Chanel since 1921. The scent is an exotic and floral one.

I suppose Chanel has every right to produce such a hopelessly romantic, whimsical advert like this because they were the founders of modern perfume.
