    OH that was too awesome!

    way to represent, Janet!

    So why wouldn't something like this be accused of copyright infringement? "the only difference is the price"... "copy"???

    I LOVE THE 80'S!!!

    Apparently "organoleptic" refers to the sensory organs of smell, taste,
    touch, sight. First time I've heard the word. Sounds more like an illness
    to me!! Love the hairstyles (not.)

    Oh boy, they're some of the sales techniques I used when I sold copy-cat perfumes (and yes, it was back in the '80s!). LOL!

    LMAO! Oh the 80's....I think a woman I worked with wore Our Secret ( I think it was Georgio Red) and it preceded her into a room by a good 30 seconds at least. That is one fragrance that used to wreak havoc with my asthma. I got quite adept at holding my breath for long periods of time.

    Was up late last night watching the 1999 version of The Crown Affair - starring Pierce Brosnan and Renee Russo - the model in this commercial.

    MAN! Has she held up!!!

    Oh my gosh, Taolady--you're right! Ding-ding-ding! A prize goes to you!
    Renee Russo, the gal who felt gawky and ugly as a teen, had scoliosis of the spine, and went to high school with Ron Howard. She's also a native plant enthusiast (yay!).

    I was watching that last night, too -- I never made the connection! Must've been the 80's hair that threw me off.

    Hysterical, considering that Giorgio can be had for $15 a bottle these days. Whatever happened to Rene Russo?

    Cheesy. I particularly like Frank Carmi, would you really trust this guy with perfume? I think he would be more adept at selling oils...

    And man that Our Secret commercial is hilarious, were the 80s really like that? With open commercials that rip off designer products? I was born in the 90s so I don't know

    OMG, RomanceSilver, that Aviance commercial--I remember every move and note and haven't seen it in 30 years. And, yeah, the '80s were not our coolest era.

    That was scary and hilarious at the same time, oh man, LOL!
    I definitely remember how popular Giorgio was, and I remember my aunts had the copies...
    Phhheeewwwww!!!

    Plus, I don't know about the rest of you, but Prince Matchabelli has always made my stomach turn.

    Forget the Giorgio copy. I want that shimmery silver jacket / pant suit that Janet is wearing, standing in front of her candy apple red car. The colors on my computer monitor practically shimmered trying to get the resolution of it.

    RomanceSilver and Quarry, I had to go see what you were talking about, and heaven help me, I remember that entire commercial, too! What I hoot! I was singing along about 2 seconds into it, and would've tossed a dish glove in synch (in sink?), if I'd had one handy. Was it really 30 years ago?
    It’s thought that people who hope too much will just waste their life away and never get down to doing any real work. They’re confusing Hope with Wish, its lazy cousin... When Wish whispers, “Something is just around the corner,” what comes or not is never what was wished for. When Hope whispers “Something is just around the corner,” something always is. -- Charlie Elberson

    "Organoleptic" is my new favorite word. It sounds like someone who steals noses and ears when folks aren't looking.

    What was the price of Giorgio Beverly Hills (Men or Women) in the 80'S?

    I DO smell expensive every day, but everyone knows how cheap I really am
