Scorsese Directs Chanel’s Men’s Fragrance Ad Starring Gaspard Ulliel

Martin Scorses Directs Chanel Men's Fragrance Ad Starting Gaspard Ulliel

A month ago I reported that Martin Scorsese was spotted at Moto in Brooklyn shooting a new Chanel ad campaign. Word has just surfaced that the ad he was filming was for Chanel’s new men’s fragrance. The ad features French actor Gaspard Ulliel.

Andrea D’Avack, president of Chanel Fragrance and Beauté, stated that “The ads have been shot in New York, the city which is so inherently part of Martin Scorsese’s cinematographic vocabulary.” (WWD)

Chanel has a long history of working with acclaimed film directors from Baz Luhrmann (with muse Nicole Kidman) and Jean-Pierre Jeunet (with mus Audrey Tautou ), both for Chanel No.5 at different times.

Chanel works with movie directors because they bring depth, emotion and what we call in French ‘a supplement of soul,’ or an added dimension,” said D’Avack, pointing to films such as “Taxi Driver,” “Raging Bull,” and “Goodfellas” as examples of Scorsese’s vision. “In the case of Martin Scorsese, we knew we would definitely have a man’s world full of complexity that is also adrenaline-driven, and of course, amazing images. (WWD)

This is the first men’s ad of its kind that I will see and I’m looking forward to it!  I love Martin Scorsese and I think he’s a wonderful choice to film a men’s fragrance ad.  He’ll be able to capture the essence of “man” without coming off as to macho – can’t wait to see!

Mother’s Day is right around the corner, and while we’re stoked to honor the most important ladies in our lives, let’s be honest – sometimes it’s pretty tough picking out a present for the woman who has everything. Because come on, how many different types of perfume can you gift your mom with each year?

For Mother’s Day ‘09, Chanel’s got you covered. The iconic beauty brand recently introduced their Lumieres Celestes Collection, which consists of eight cosmos-inspired lip glosses to give Mama that perfect pout this holiday. The different shades of pinks and peaches are a perfect addition to her summer beauty routine, and we don’t doubt that you’ll be tempted to scoop up a tube or two for yourself. After all, why should Mom get to have ALL the fun? (We won’t judge if you end up purchasing a gloss or two for your own collection… We’d probably do the same.)

Pair one of these attention-grabbing glosses with a bottle of Chanel’s Le Vernis Nail Colour, which is available in four complementary (and chip-resistant!) shades, from Dazzling cherry red to subdued Mica Rose. Not only are these cosmetics an economical way to gift your mom with a designer label for less, but they’re sure to provide grounds for bonding this Mother’s Day. (Gift idea: treat Mom to a mani/pedi with her newest shade of Chanel polish!) Complete the gift set by whipping up a fabulous breakfast-in-bed for Mom to show her just how appreciative you are.
