Marina from Perfume-Smellin’ Things and I have decided to take a break from writing reviews and instead focus on the marketing side of things, namely, perfume ads. She’s already done a highly amusing post dedicated to perfume ads here. However, so much more can be said on the subject that she came up with another idea – Perfume Ads That Make You Go… “How You Doin’!” – Hitparade of Hottest Guys in Perfume Ads (copyright Colombina), and I offered to add some hormonal balance by doing a 10 Hottest Chicks in Perfume Ads. Let’s see what we have here:
Um… what’s the rush, and why are so many people following her? I figured it must be because she’s hot! It’s as if she’s saying, “I’m so beautiful I want to run away on the beach! I’m beautiful! I’m gorgeous! Carry me away!” Call me a cynic but this just makes me gag.
“What are you looking at? I don’t have your credit card. Go home, hombre”. I know this is a totally nonsensical caption but so is the ad. The chick is hot, though.
Love in Paris. The name implies so much – romantic strolls along the Seine, gazing into each other’s eyes in cute coffee shops, kissing on top of the Eiffel Tower, perfume shops (perfume shops!!)… It’s gotta be hot! Somehow this chick is the epitome of all things boring, though.
Anorexia alert! She’s so hot she’s sweated all of her weight off.
OK, this one is a true hottie, with the knife and all. Don’t mess with her. She’s got some fruit, and she knows how to use it. Side note: this ad really does not match the perfume.
I’m not sure what went wrong here. Either the perfume threw her into utter despair or she just plain suffers from indigestion. In any case, this is clearly the opposite of hot but I threw it in here just for the kicks.
How you doin’! Huh? HUH? This is an ad for Parfum D’Hermes, folks. The one that was shamelessly reformulated into today’s Rouge. A big fat “WHY?” is all that comes to mind when I think of it, and when I look at this ad. WHY?
“I can beat this dude, and I have dinner cooking at home in a crockpot”. Hot!
This one is priceless. A phone hottie.
And this… This is true beauty. True beauty is not about being hot. She surpasses them all. And she’s not a chick.
