The latest Chanel perfume video released features a historical connection between Chanel No.5 and movie starlet Marilyn Monroe.
The iconic brand and actress are showcased in a chronological catalog of interactions between Monroe and the perfume. It commences with the first recorded mention of Marilyn's relation to the brand in 1952, when she shared with Life Magazine that she regularly wore Chanel No.5 to bed. The video goes on to display Marilyn's endorsement of the beloved brand in editorials and photo shoots, some published and others not ever released. Highlights include a photo-op at Monroe's personal abode where the perfume remains perched on her bed stand and an audio clip that quotes her stating again her devotion to wearing Chanel No.5 before bed.
The Chanel perfume video reconnects Chanel No.5 to vintage celebrity endorsement and resurrects the allure of fragrance and fame.
