After talking about perfume this morning…

We wanted to share this Chanel N°5 ad featuring Marilyn Monroe. It’s interesting to see her used in an ad for the fragrance today, many years after she admitted to wearing just a few drops of Chanel N°5 to bed.

Over the weekend I read a trend report on the fragrance industry (and then I went to an awesome party, okay?) and it talked about a nostalgia boom with perfumes this year. Part of it is because some classics are being relaunched but also because people are really craving authenticity when it comes to their fragrances. Chanel is definitely taping into this feeling with this new ad campaign.

What do you think of it? How does the pairing of these two icons make you feel about the fragrance?
