Chanel No5 Retrospective III: Salvador Dali Appears on a Flacon of No5 {Perfume Images}

The flacon of No 5 as part of XXth century art iconography

Two icons meet, not fortuitously : the Dali moustache and the Chanel No5 bottle

But before that, Coco Chanel and Salvador Dali

Dali's nose disappeared given up in sacrifice to Baal

He doesn't need it anymore, it smells of the No 5

Surrealism gets pulled in the direction of pop culture

Chanel No 5 wins
