The Chanel 'For the First Time' campaign focuses on the historical stardom of its award-winning perfume No.5. The scent celebrates its 91st birthday this year, triumphing decades of sales and branding. Chanel created this short film to graphically depict the origin and history of the No.5 scent in video infographic form. This short film was released at the same time Chanel debuted Brad Pitt as the No.5 face. Pitt if officially the first man to ever represent a women's fragrance.

From 2012 to 1921, the Coco Chanel designed perfume stands the test of time and remains the most popular-selling perfume to date. The No.5 was named after the fifth scent sample Coco Chanel examined before she chose the finalized smell. The number five also has magical, luck-giving qualities.
