I recently celebrated a wedding anniversary with Mr. Blueskies. Apparently salt was historically given for the 8th anniversary present. While not meaning to sound ungrateful or spoilt I certainly didn’t need any salt to add to the kitchen cupboards. Instead of presents we celebrated with a special meal. I wore my CHANEL N°5. I only ever wear it on special occasions and it magically transported us back to that special day eight years ago we said “I do.” I wore N°5 on the day as I wanted a timeless classic and in the words of Coco Chanel – “Her scent should be as important as her dress.”

The anniversary coincided with Chanel’s release of this video of Marylin Monroe promoting N°5 from beyond the grave. She follows in the footsteps of such iconic stars as Nicole Kidman, Audrey Tatou, Catherine Deneuve and more recently Brad Pitt (What was that about??)
