CHANEL N˚ 5 DAY IN NYC — May 5th, 2009
Audrey Tautou is the newest spokesperson for the iconic fragrance, designed to capture Coco Chanel’s philosophy. Chanel describes the fragrance as, “a rich modern floral blend of Grasse Jasmine, May Rose, Neroli, Bourbon Vanilla and Ylang-Ylang with gentle precious woods.” It debuted in 1921, and it is still a staple for many women.
Today, Chanel unveils a short film titled Train de Nuit starring Audrey Tautou, directed by Jean-Pierre Jeunet. You can view the film at www.chaneln5.com. Additionally, May 2nd through May 10th, the Saks Fifth Avenue New York flagship store will be changing up their exterior and interior of the store to celebrate Chanel.

Chanel London Madness Collection for Summer 2009
May brings a brand new reason to step in to Selfridges for the opening of the new Chanel Makeup Counter. To celebrate the occasion, Peter Philips, the Global Creative Director of CHANEL Makeup, has designed 3 limited edition must-have products – The London Madness Collection – which will be exclusively available in the Oxford Street store and then launching nationwide at the end of June. This collection was inspired by Peter’s love of London and has been expressed in the creation of the exclusive Union Jack Palette.
- London Madness “Pearly Banner” Highlighter with an ivory, gold and silver union jack on the surface
- Rouge Allure in ‘Enthusiast’ Bright, young, fresh red shade
- Le Vernis in ‘Enthusiast’ Complimentary red nail colour
Available: May 2009 at Oxford Street store, late June elsewhere in the UK — I do not know if this will be launched outside of the UK area at this time!

Chanel Orange Fizz Le Vernis Nail Colour ($23.00) is part of Chanel’s summer makeup collection. It’s described as a “coral,” which is a fairly accurate description. I’d say it runs more like an orange-coral than a pink-coral though, and I think that is something important to note. It’s a creamy, opaque orange-coral with a semi-glossy finish. It isn’t too glossy, which helps make it more subdued, despite the brightness of the hue. I think this is a great color for tips and toes during the summer season!
As far as the formula goes, it’s typical Chanel for me — applies easily, lasts awhile, and doesn’t chip.
