Entries in Chanel (2)


The spell of Chanel, smells like 1960s ingenues.

Chanel beauties, Ali McGraw and Candice Bergen dare to go almost bare with nothing but their Chanel perfume accessories and their own timeless beauty. Bitches. The above 1966 ad leads you to believe you can cast the seductive spell of Chanel in your bath, assuming you look like the beguiling Ali, and your bath resembles the Playboy mansion grotto. That set of Chanel bath products sure is magical stuff! 

Candice (1967) prefers a modern ladylike approach with her pocket perfume spray and pearl earrings. You too can smell like that country club cutie who wouldn't give you the time of day except for the fact your boyfriend is a hot  caddie and drives a brand new Astin Martin. They sure will smell good when they ditch your party and depart in a smelly cloud of Chanel.


Catherine Deneuve & Chanel - 1970s perfection

Chanel No. 5 - 1978Chanel - 1979

Chanel • 1972

The gorgeous Catherine Deneuve sported her sultry sex appeal to shill a little stink-um for the ultimate luxury ladies' accessory, Chanel No. 5. Her relationship with the couture perfume spans the 70s decade and illustratse the timelessness of her beauty. I bet she smells good too!

So when you look as good as Ms. Deneuve, I suppose there's no need to write any witty, clever or evocative copy to sell the stuff. Classic sells itself, folks.

On another note - how exactly do you say "You smell fantastic, beautiful" in french? And exactly where are the men that say that anyway?
