CHANEL: The Self-Portrait of a Perfume


Post by Portia


Hey there APJ,

This video came out in May but it’s been so hectic here I haven’t gotten around to sharing it. One thing I have noticed over the last decade or so is CHANEL’s constant reinvention of ways to market themselves, and the way many other companies jump on board the idea. It’s not new to make videos upselling your product, what else are cinema and TV ads, but CHANEL seems to be in a class of its own.

Please take a moment out of your hectic day to be swept away by the modern dream of a vintage fragrance.
Do you love CHANEL No 5? How about the video?

  1. I absolutely love Chanel No5 and in the hecticness of all other things I don’t have any. Sod that. I need to fix the problem. Thanks for the inspiration. ❤️


  2. I just blind bought an old unmarked crystal bottle with stopper Made in France with a black string around the top. I do not like Chanel I have always stated. Never did. I tried this one on and liked it. I found it to be a lovely floral aldehyde with citrus notes, not sharp, but soapy, beautiful. A fragrance friend believes it to be No. 5. An old dog’s nose changes.


    • Gina Tabasso,
      The old stuff is an entirely different creature. Similar but ……..
      You get it.
