It’s that time of the year when fragrance commercials pop up on TV and social media ads. Although they are very nice and well put together, there is one commercial I love to this day: Chanel N°5 Le Film
I saw Le Film for the fragrance Chanel N°5 during the Christmas season in 2004. The 2 minutes 2 seconds film stars Nicole Kidman as an actress that runs away from the Hollywood life and falls in love with a man, played by Rodrigo Santoro. If you believe the film has a Moulin Rouge feel to it, you’re right. Baz Luhrmann directed Moulin Rogue as well as this commercial.
Even though the commercial is 14 years old this year, I still look for it on YouTube and watch it during the Christmas/holiday season. To me, it’s the best fragrance commercial I’ve ever seen and it still makes me feel mushy, sentimental, and romantic every time I see it.
