[Video] Patrick Suskind’s “Perfume” by CHANEL Nº5

by Violet Blue on December 16, 2010

The creepy/sexy video for CHANEL Nº5 depicting their vision of Patrick Suskind’s (amazing) novel Perfume is not a new video, but my friend Midori just reminded me about it with a link. And for some reason it seems (to me) to be a great holiday accompaniment – White Diamonds holiday commercial revivals be damned.

My wife and I actually visited the parfumerie in Grasse where they created the signature scent. We’re not really perfume people, but we both loved the book, so we just had to go.

Creepy…yes… except I hope that the music is not Gorecki’s 3rd. Seriously poor taste if it is.
