The black and white short film featuring Cruz and Brad Pitt, directed by Inez and Vinoodh, is the latest campaign for Chanel’s classic 11.12 handbag. Canary whispers that Viard requested Pitt specifically for the campaign, and their collaboration is a match made in cinematic and luxurious heaven. The brand ambassador turned heads arriving with Lelouch. Think leading lady vibes with a touch of Parisian je ne sais quoi. 👒

Rolex Reigns Supreme, Clocking $10 Billion in Sales. (Watches)

Claiming the watchmaking throne is Rolex! According to Canary’s research, Rolex shattered records in 2023, reaching a staggering $10 billion in sales for the first time ever. Rolex also saw its market share surge by over 30%, calling for an "unprecedented" market dominance, by outselling competitor giants like Cartier, Audemars Piguet, Omega, and Patek Philippe combined. Talk about a clean sweep! It seems Rolex's commitment to quality and iconic designs like the Daytona, Submariner, and Datejust continues to strike a chord with discerning watch enthusiasts. So, the next time you see someone sporting a Rolex, remember, they're not just wearing a watch – they're wearing a piece of horological history. ⚡

Forget Slowpoke Safety Cars, Aston Martin Steps Up Its Game. (Cars and Sports)

Formula 1's safety car scene is about to get a serious speed boost. Aston Martin has unveiled its 2024 safety car, based on the upcoming 2025 Vantage, and it's set to leave complaints about slow speeds in the dust. While the exterior might not scream "revolution," hidden tweaks promise a performance worthy of the F1 stage. This is a response to, well, let's just say "constructive criticism" to (you know who!) —Red Bull's Max Verstappen, who wasn't shy about calling the previous Aston Martin safety car a "turtle" compared to its Mercedes-AMG counterpart. So, buckle up, F1 fans. The days of drivers fretting about tire temperatures behind a sluggish safety car are hopefully over. 🏎️

Pop the cork! Champagne Houses Vie for Royal Approval; a Renewal is due? (Wines)

For over a century, the British monarchy has granted "royal warrants" to select Champagne houses, signifying they are official suppliers to the royal family. Their "royal warrants" expire in September, and the new King hasn't whispered a word about renewal. This has sparked a discreet yet fierce competition among the nine affected Champagne houses, all vying for the king's favor. Can you imagine the discreet toasting and subtle name-dropping happening right now? Canary sense that, a lot is at stake – it’s as good as a golden ticket to prestige is only a few steps away! 🥂

💡Luxury Tidbit 💡

Did you know? In 1925, Guerlain introduced Shalimar, a fragrance that would go on to become one of the most iconic and enduring scents in the world of perfumery.

Inspired by the enchanting love story of Emperor Shah Jahan and his beloved wife, Mumtaz Mahal, Shalimar captures the essence of their eternal romance and the majestic beauty of the Taj Mahal.

Emperor Shah Jahan created the Taj Mahal as a symbol of his undying love for Mumtaz Mahal, who passed away tragically during childbirth.

Heartbroken by her loss, Shah Jahan sought solace in the memories of their love and vowed to immortalise their bond through the grandeur of the Taj Mahal.

Drawing inspiration from this poignant tale of love and loss, Guerlain's master perfumer, Jacques Guerlain, set out to create a fragrance that embodied the passion and splendour of the Mughal Empire.

The result was Shalimar, a masterpiece that blended exotic floral notes with sensual oriental accords, evoking the opulence of Shah Jahan's court and the breathtaking beauty of the Taj Mahal at dusk.

Shalimar's exquisite composition captivated the senses with its rich blend of bergamot, iris, vanilla, and tonka bean, creating an aura of timeless elegance and sophistication.

The fragrance quickly became a symbol of luxury and romance, adored by royalty, celebrities, and discerning perfume enthusiasts alike.

Over the decades, Shalimar has retained its allure and relevance, standing the test of time as a true classic in the world of perfumery. Its timeless appeal continues to inspire generations of fragrance connoisseurs, cementing its legacy as a symbol of eternal love and beauty.

Today, Shalimar remains an iconic fragrance in Guerlain's illustrious portfolio, cherished by millions around the world for its evocative aroma and timeless elegance.

Its enduring popularity serves as a testament to the enduring power of love and the artistry of perfumery, making it a beloved symbol of romance and sophistication for generations to come.

Canary is spritzing herself with the hangover of romance.

But she’ll be back Next Friday with more scoop!

Until then,
Stay Luxe you all!
