Keira Knightley for Coco Mademoiselle

I love, love this commercial. It reminds me a bit of the Paris episodes of Sex and the City and the Paris scenes in Devil Wears Prada....romantic and mysterious but also bright and energetic, just like Paris itself.

Coco Mademoiselle used to be one of my go-to fragrances (as I mentioned last week, I used to keep an extra bottle in my glove compartment!). I'd lost interest in it in recent years, but I have to admit that this commercial has stirred up some renewed interest in the scent.

I'm also loving the song, which is a cover of L-O-V-E by Joss Stone. Overall, I definitely prefer this ad over Gucci's David Lynch-directed spot, which was just not weird enough for Lynch.
