    Eyes being closed seems to feature a lot too

    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.

    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!

    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?

    "Having sex with someone invisible" is genius.

    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.

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

    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.
