Marilyn Monroe Breathes New Life into Chanel No. 5

Marilyn MonroeIn a groundbreaking move, Chanel has brought back Marilyn Monroe as the face of its iconic fragrance, No. 5, fifty-one years after her passing. The French luxury house unveiled previously unseen footage and audio recordings from an interview the actress gave to Georges Belmont in French Marie Claire in April 1960, where she candidly discussed her enduring connection to the perfume. This nostalgic tribute has captivated both new and old fans, reigniting their admiration for the timeless fragrance and its enduring association with Hollywood’s most celebrated icon.

“You know, they ask me questions,” she explains in the audio. “Just an example: ‘What do you wear to bed ? A pajama top? The bottoms of the pajamas? A nightgown?’ So I said, ‘Chanel No. 5,’ because it’s the truth… And yet, I don’t want to say ‘nude’. But it’s the truth!”

Watch the clip below and listen to Marilyn speaking about the iconic fragrance. Now that is an Ad ! Step off, Brad.
