In Memoriam: Gaspard Ulliel

 The actor who is best known to perfume lovers thanks to fronting the advertising campaign for Bleu de Chanel is no more. The star of many films, including an Yves Saint Laurent biopic (named Saint Laurent, an excellent casting choice!), Sibyl (2019) and Un Long Dimanche des Fiancailles (2004), Gaspard will be missed.


His life's thread was cut at the untimely and early age of 37 at a skiing accident. The claustrophobic atmosphere of the commercial for Chanel seems foreshadowing now.


Cast a thought for his ethereal and sophisticated beauty that will haunt our perfume bottles to their end. "For the man without limits". How ironically, tragically apt.
