I was at my local Chanel counter buying a mascara, and lodged an official complaint against the use of Brad Pitt as the spokesperson for Chanel #5, the cornerstone of the Chanel business; and if I'm not mistaken, the most sold fragrance in the world. The sales associate was very nice given my comment and determination to let her know exactly what I think ... and then she went on to say that about half the people love it, and half don't. But what is remarkable is the fact that men are coming in ... and trying it on! As Brad Pitt is the spokesman, they think that it is a MAN'S FRAGRANCE! Ha! Dum-asses!
But maybe Chanel is on to something ... they are building a new customer for a decades old scent. C'est oui!
