The best perfume ads?


Posted by Colleen Shirazi, Wednesday, September 05, 2007 2:07 AM (Eastern)


Retro Enjoli commercial

No wait, not that one! :D I actually remember that ad. To give credit where it's due, it was one of the first ads I can remember featuring a professional woman, complete with suit. (Although looking at it now, the wisdom of asking someone to work two full-time jobs...eh...)

Beauty aficionados will note this also shows the favored lip shape of the 1970's: small and neat. (Full lips would not be in vogue in the U.S. until many years later.)


the best perfume commercials

This is the one I was thinking of. What's lovely is it features various brands of perfume, and actresses such as Nicole Kidman, Sophie Marceau, and my girl Scarlett Johansson.

The Nicole Kidman Chanel No. 5 (full version) is all over the Net; it's hard to resist a luminous Kidman declaring, "I'm a dancer. I love to dance!" and the whole Roman Holiday-ness of it all. But of the ads excerpted in the video, my favorite has to be the Little Red Riding Hood one:


Chanel no5 - Little Red Riding Hood

Oh, I know it's borderline sappy, yet there's enough sheer wit--today's Little Red Riding Hood, not the wolf, is clearly in charge--to make it sparkle.
