Chanel No 5 and Brad Pitt

Monday, 22 October 2012

The world's most famous perfume teamed up with one of the world's most well known actors to create a  very intriguing ad campaign. The ad features Brad Pitt, following the footsteps of Marilyn Monroe, Catherine Deneuve, Nicole Kidman or Keira Knightley as the new face of Chanel No 5. I was really surprised when I first heard the news a few months ago, because I thought it was a very bold move to have a man advertise a woman's perfume of such caliber. However seeing the end result now I can say that I like it. It's different, somewhat confusing, but it's definitely creating  buzz around the decade-old brand.

In an interview about the campaign, Brad Pitt talked about his experience working with Chanel. "What's important to remember about Chanel No 5 is how revolutionary this fragrance is; when it was introduced it broke all the rules. No 5 has always been the most iconic women's fragrance. That's what I see being the appeal of this campaign; it goes beyond the abstract of emotion or beauty to evoke what is timeless: a woman's spirit."

There were two different video released for this campaign, one featuring only Brand Pitt and the other one, a more surreal version of the first, featuring model with Brad Pitt's voice over. Have a look at some photos and  at the two campaign videos. Pick your favorite!

 The two campaign videos:

Which one of the two videos was your favorite? Do you like the idea or would you have preferred a woman as the new Chanel No 5 muse? Find out more interesting facts on the famous perfume on the Inside Chanel website!

I saw the first ad in a magazine yesterday (I know I'm behind) and I kind of like it. I think I would like the ads better with a clean cut Brad Pitt, but somehow his scruffy looks works too. I'm not sure No 5 is the fragrance for me, but the ads make my imagination go wild lol!

I think Brad is good but not the right one for this add. He is so American and the brand is so European....

I love Chanel N°5, but I hate these ads featuring Brad Pitt. I just don't think it fits the Chanel image, and the first one is just horrible. The second one is okay, but I'm sure Chanel can do a lot better!
