L'Eau de Chloé by Chloé / Coty

We think judging by this and the Marc Jacobs advert, Coty must keep fields of blonde women in white dresses, who go around hugging oversized perfume bottles, just for when they need to make a new commercial.

      Man, it upsets me when a good song is used for perfume commercials with models I don't personally care for. But ehhh, whatever. I like the Acque di Gioia commercial tbh. I think another criteria point is use a pop/electronica song for the commercial.

      edit: whoops, saw that in one of the points just now.

      I think some "high point" scoring commercials would also be Britney Spears' Fantasy and Curious commercials.

      Staring outside a window with hands/body stuck to it like Spiderman or like a gecco.

      Oh no, this is going to eat into even more of the time which I haven't got.

      It's actually interesting to use the Pitt / No 5 advert here, because it proves that it does avoid quite a few cliches, except perhaps the breathy narration and the dim lighting.

      I'd like to submit the original Eternity For Men advert. I think it probably ticks 10 or 11.

      "Having sex with someone invisible" is genius.

    • hlatif33 | 7th November 2012 15:07

      Its mostly the designer stuff with the sleazy advertising...you don't see this crap on with Le Labo or what ever...

    • green_lobsters | 7th November 2012 21:57

      Maybe we could add gold jewellery/dresses as this seems to be an ongoing theme in getting people to believe they are buying into something high end?

    • harper | 8th November 2012 00:05

      i love the "hugging a big bottle" bit.

      oy vey...

    • ynde | 8th November 2012 06:07

      My absolute favourite advert for a perfume is the new one for Valentina by Valentino, which really only has the dim lighting (in its defence, it is set at night). It's actually the reason I went out to smell the perfume in the first place, which an advertisement for a perfume has never made me do before!

    • Zebra | 8th November 2012 17:02

      Striking how original Basenotes' fave Mandom turns out to be. By my reckoning, it gets a low 3 1/2 - the half being for the girly leap he makes as he throws his shirt away. How many commercials feature gun shots and neighing? Genius.

    • EenieMeenie | 12th November 2012 04:42

      Eyes being closed seems to feature a lot too
