The choice of 17-year-old Lily-Rose Depp as the face of the Chanel N°5 L’Eau fragrance is a paradox in itself. Not yet an adult, yet chosen to embody the newest iteration of the fashion house’s most iconic scent, the original in existence since 1921; and often seen as a perfume for the older women.

But like Depp herself, the N°5 L’Eau is really a breath of fresh air, sort of a clearer, lighter version of the original aldehydic-floral N°5. Here, in tandem with the release of the N°5 L’Eau film – starring Depp, of course – is a photoshoot done in Los Angeles that allows her youth to shine through, which together with her responses to the following interview questions reveals a side of Depp that might be unfamiliar to some. You know her, and you don’t. Photographed by David Mushegain.
