Marion Cottilard: "Chanel"

Take a look at actress Marion Cottilard ("The Dark Knight Rises") as the 'face' of French fragrance 'Chanel No. 5', featured in the film "Dancing On The Moon", directed by Johan Renck:

Traditionally, fragrances worn by women fell into two basic categories. 'Respectable women' favored the essence of a single garden flower...

...while sexually provocative perfumes heavy with animal musk or jasmine were associated with women of the 'demi-monde', prostitutes, or courtesans. 

'Chanel No. 5' was originally compounded by French-Russian chemist/perfumer Ernest Beaux, with bottle design an integral part of the product's allure, for a new scent with appeal for the liberated 'feminine spirit' of the 1920's.
