Love them or hate them, the talk-of-the-town Brad Pitt commercials for Chanel No.5 have returned with a conclusive chapter that will either delight or frighten you.
Released on Monday, the second of the Chanel No.5 perfume ads marks the end chapter to the lovelorn Pitt's haunting monochrome monologue. The previous film evoked Catherine Deneuve's monologue for the same perfume from the late 1970s, although you can't say it suits contemporary taste. From British director Joe Wright (Pride and Prejudice, Atonement), the second film recalls the ubiquitous motif of recent Chanel No.5 ads that portray the longing and yearning embodied in the lingering scent of No.5 floating in the air.
It harks back to the lingering sensation left by the unattainable Nicole Kidman in 2004's No.5 The Film and the irresistible sensuality of Audrey Tautou in 2009's Train de Nuit No.5 ads.
