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 No. 5 was my very first, “bought it all by myself” grown-up perfume, so it holds a LOT of great memories for me :-) It embodied all that was sophisticated, timeless and elegant, and I just KNEW that if I owned it, I would be all of those things, too ;-)

    I still own it, and love it, and even more so their newer, lighter version :-)

    I love it so much I own eau the parfum, body lotion and elixir. I tried the new version and I really like that too.

    My mum used to wear No. 5, she had a little purse perfume spray. It reminds me of when my parents used to get dressed up to go to dinner parties. I think I still have the case.
