Making sense of men's fragrance ads

I don't know how you men do it. How do you pick your signature scent? Don't all the fragrance ads make you feel really really inadequate?

Calvin Klein

This is only half of the ad but it's the part that really matters. There seem to be a few words missing - the whole ad should read "OBSSESSION NIGHT for dirty old men". If you really want to get specific it should read "OBSSESSION NIGHT for dirty old men living where water restrictions are so strict you can't even draw enough water in your bathtub to cover your buttocks".

Hugo Boss

With this ad campaign, Hugo Boss has decided to target a hitherto ignored minority demographic - the Rohypnol carrying male.

Bvlgari

Hey you! Yeah you, Hugo Boss guy. Hands off my girl. I've been watching her for months now. There's nobody who can stalk her as well as I do. Nobody. Now back off. I'll be keeping my eye on you. And her too, of course!

Davidoff

Clearly the good life consists of being able to spend lazy afternoons on a gigantic tree branch admiring the results of consuming web-purchased enlargement pills over a sustained period of time.

Lanvin

Come on boy! Good dog! OK boy, go fetch! Fetch the Blackberry! That's a good dog! Now fetch the coffee! Cream and sugar too please! Good doggie! Go boy, fetch my dry cleaning! Atta boy! Come here, boy! Who's the bestest doggie in the world? If you work through your lunch hour, I'll let you leave early today!

Escada

Who knew that in this day and age Africanized killer bees still posed more of a threat to society than avian flu or SARS. Perhaps if he just moved his date's red swollen corpse under the buffet table, subtly covered his face, ditched the offending bouquet and retreated by slow backward steps to the exit, nobody would notice.

Thierry Mugler

Ten Years Ago. The Machines Who Rule The Future Sent An Unstoppable Terminator To Deodorise The Yet Unborn John Connor. They Failed. In 2005. The Machines Will Try Again. The T1000. With New Improved and More Dangly Metal Bits.


Mark your territory with Yohji Homme, the scent of dog pee.

Vera Wang

The past few years have been a rollercoaster ride of unbridled passion for the both of you and today marks a new beginning. Go on, cop one last feel before she goes off and gets married to your best friend. Whatever you do though, don't lose the ring because that's the worst thing that a best man could ever do.

Love Thierry Mugler! I can't believe people still remember him and his perfume continues on.

Remember those crazy robot suits and the insect costumes and the pointy shouldered wasp waisted suits on Imelda Marcos... the Motorcycle suit with the handlebars... Those were the days.

At least if you pick Obsession there will always be somewhere to park your bicycle.

the girl in the obsession ad is Gemma Ward, she is 21 on nov 3 this year - 2008. i think this ad was made in 2005 so she would have been 18 but she does look very young!

The first question many people have about links london one way links is why are they so important.If you links of london compared two websites that had exactly the links jewellery same content but one of them had one hundred one way links versus none on the other site links of london uk you would see that the site with one way links had a much better cheap links of london ranking with each search engine. links of london bracelet The primary reason for this is there is no reason for one site links of london charms to link to another without a reciprocating link other than that links of london watches site determines that the website is an authority on it's given niche links of london rings A one way link is when a website links to another site without links of london necklaces asking for a reciprocal link back.

Well, I don't really suppose this is likely to have effect.
