Just like the Campbell Soup can, the Chanel no. 5 bottle has become iconic of consumer culture and this poster is a tribute to the iconic brand and Chanel's long history of promotion. It all began in 1921 via word of mouth; Coco Chanel would invite trendsetting women to smart dinner parties where she’d spritz them with the perfume. In 1954, a now-iconic interview with Marilyn Monroe for Marie Claire magazine had a journalist ask the actress what she wore to bed, and the blond bombshell deftly replied, "Why, Chanel No. 5 of course!" Suddenly, the fragrance was associated with the most glamorous movie star in the world—and sales skyrocketed.
This is a double sided poster in good overall condition. There is visible age-related creasing and some small tears (see photos).
