Christmas and Chanel No. 5

Around Christmas time, commercials start to run like crazy pushing the more expensive perfumes. 90% of them don't make any sense to me, and I immediately forget which brand was being plugged. One has stood out for me this year, though. It's one for Chanel No. 5 with Nicole Kidman. When I first saw it, I thought it was a trailer for a really romantic movie. She plays a famous woman who "disappears" from the scene for awhile. She has taken up with a young, handsome (in a scruffy way) man. At the end of the commercial, she goes back to society. It shows her walking up a carpet towards an entrance, while papparazzi cameras go off like crazy. She turns and looks over her shoulder up at a brightly lit Chanel No. 5 sign. Her lover is up there gazing down at her. I really love this commercial. I think Nicole looks fantastic. It makes me want to go out and buy a ton of Chanel products, which is it's point, obviously.
