Marilyn Monroe & Chanel No.5

With more than 50 years past since her death Marilyn Monroe is still a sexy siren on our screens since new footage has emerged in a Chanel No. 5 advert campaign. We all know she famously revealed to Life magazine that her chosen attire for bed was Chanel No. 5 . The thought of her saying this would have made us imagine she was trying to be seductive hinting at the fact her naked hour glass body was drenched in the fragrance. However, this footage shows her innocence with references to pyjama tops and bottoms as she simple reveals “I said Chanel No. 5 because its the truth and yet I didn’t want to say nude but its the truth”. Chanel have described the fragrance as one which becomes more intriguing as time passes and that also seems to be the case with Miss Monroe. I just adore Chanel No. 5, it is a classic, full bodied smell which mirrors Marilyn perfectly. So many fabulous women have worn it throughout the years which instantly evokes a sense of nostalgia. All those years ago when Marilyn told the journalist she only wore the fragrance to bed little did she know it made No. 5 legendary and legends never die.
