Chanel N°5 is a very complex fragrance which does not allow any of the components to be isoled out of the composition ( Aldehydic, woody, powdery, musky, citrus, floral). However, some years ago, Chanel N°5 slipped in some markets. In order to regain the top place, and attract a new generation of perfumes wears, Chanel launched a very wonderful ad campaign starring Nicole Kidman and about three minutes!! This short film is a romance. The story of the most famous woman in the world who flees paparazzi and jumps into a taxi where she meets a writer.

Chanel N°5 is not really presented in the film, just at the end of the film we can see the form of a diamond pendant in the shape of a No 5. People really live the story. It’s a commercial hidden under art. Chanel N°5 is the luxury brand of the market and by the way of this ad campaign , all women dream about it.
