Happy Chanel No. 5 Friday! (Yes, it’s also Friday the 13th and World Kindness Day.) Our community project for today: wear Chanel No. 5, or a No. 5 flanker, or a fragrance that is related to No. 5 in some way — it does not have to be by Chanel!
What fragrance did you pick? As always, do chime in with your scent of the day even if you’re not participating in the community project.
I am a fail. I have at least two versions of Chanel No. 5 but I had not checked on them, much less worn them, in years, and they are not in good shape. My pathetic bid for a partial point: I’m in Chanel Misia, because Michael Edwards tells us that Misia Sert says she gave Chanel the idea for the perfume that became No. 5…
The new Marion Cotillard commercial for Chanel No. 5 is due later this week, but meanwhile, you can drool over the Chanel Beige Maisons d’art coffret decorated by Maison Lemarié.
Chanel has dropped a bunch of No. 5 body products for the holidays. Shown is The Hair Mist ("A mist that delicately scents hair with the elegant, mysterious notes of the now and forever fragrance. A feminine, sensual floral bouquet that enhances the smooth harmony of May rose and jasmine.") $65 for 35 ml at Dillards.
