Happy Birthday Chanel #5!

When I received this mailer in my inbox this morning I had no idea that it was also the "birthday" of Chanel #5 (the anniversary of it's first launch). The Ideeli blog sent a tweet out informing us of their post on the birthday of Chanel #5 and I was happy that they put 2 and 2 together for me - I have too many things going on in my head to do it myself.

Anyway, Audrey Tautou stars in the new promo film.

Did I mention that according to My Heritage my face is a mathamatical match for Tautou? I tried to find the evidence but I can't find it on their site anymore. Oh well. Anyway, they also said I am a mathamatical match to The Rock.

My Chanel #5 Story/Confession
When I was little, my next door neighbor and I used to get get together and pretend we were chemists. We'd put together all sorts of scents together and try to pretend we were making perfume. I don't know how much of my mother's Chanel No. 5 was sacrificed in this meaningless pursuit, but we never were able to come up with the perfect scent out of the stuff we had in my bathroom cabinet. I should probably purchase another bottle for my mother because I know I totally destroyed hers. She may not have noticed - I don't think I've ever been around her wearing perfume.
