Chanel gave us an intimate moment that we didn‚Äôt ask for with Gisele B√ľndchen, the face of their Chanel N¬į5 fragrance. In the clip, B√ľndchen is wrapped in a blanket, walking barefoot in leaves, while describing how she‚Äôs at her happiest whenever she is in the middle of nature.

A notable quote: ‚ÄúI love the smell of nature. For example, after it rains and the smell of the earth. It‚Äôs my favorite smell. It just smells like wet earth.‚ÄĚ

After my third time of watching this visual poetry, I decided to sync the clip to some Jewel videos, just like people do with The Wizard of Oz and Pink Floyd‚Äôs The Dark Side of the Moon. I was pleased to find a similar synchronicity. It matches up nicely with my favorite song by Jewel, ‚ÄúHands,‚ÄĚ but works extremely well with ‚ÄúWho Will Save Your Soul.‚ÄĚ Just press mute on B√ľndchen and turn up some Jewel in another tab. Highly recommended.
