    Sure, who wouldn't want to smell like- a corporate office building?

    This girl had to put up with him for not enough money, I suspect.

    The caption reads "What does Revenge smell like"? Phew! Bad grammar aside, someone is going to have to explain this one to me!

    Do you all know how to post pictures? It's not too hard. Google a subject, then click on 'images'. Pick your photo and hit 'view image'. Go to the address line at the top and hit 'copy'. 'Paste' it in the reply box with this [IMG] in front of the jpg and this [/IMG] following. Hit save.

    Wow... he totally stole the Estee Lauder For Men bottle design. Figures. He's so unoriginal.

    Revenge Double Infinity causes people to shrink. They'd dissed her for her sub par appetizers. So she casually went around the room, covertly applying Double Infinity to her guests. In a few moments, they all began to shrink.

    Cytherian-Snork! I love that! How do you account for the messy blood stain on the stone plinth!? Human sacrifice at the cocktail party?

    You're so right about the Donald's bottle design. He's great at stealing ideas.

    edit- I see now, it's not a stone platform- it's a travel trunk with blood spilling out of it. So there must be a body inside.

    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve other individuals' acknowledgement or respect.

    This is quite entertaining although it doesn't make me want to buy this perfume.

    Rather off-topic, since I consider this ad campaign only marginally strange and somehow intriguing- Sebastien Chabal for Caron pour un Homme. A choice apparently so unlikely that it's oddly inspired and non-generic.

    @Rüssel, that Beckham ad is disturbing, alright. Especially considering little Miss Zero Butt looks just like his wife.

    Depends on your opinions of Sebastien Chabal really, doesn't it?

    He's definitely in the 'I would' category for some women (me included). I'm more league than union when it comes to rugby, but when he was playing for France he was definitely a good reason to watch a union match.

    They cleaned the mud off and combed his hair- what more do you want?

    Funny how the mind can block things out. I totally missed the blood. My eyes "saw" it, but it completely did not register. Yeah, that makes this ad all the more weird.

    I like the Lauder For Men bottle (I have a small 1.7oz splash bottle of it). I'll bet anything Donald's take will feel cheaper.

    I've seen some of her music videos in skin tight catsuits and... her body does not look like that. It's definitely a photo edited work. Stefani (Gaga) is more of a marketing whiz than a vocalist. She figured out just what to do at just the right time. She was raised on Madonna's music and capitalized on her persona, with 00's style. At least she is an active philanthropist.

    You may be familiar with this one already, but I'll post it as it's a classic.

    I know he's very pleased with himself but I don't think I'd want to smell like that.

    Yes, in the 'Belle Opium' ad I especially enjoy the spotlight on her privates. Very discrete.

    Kumquat, this thread is funny AND peculiar. LOL. I haven't seen most of these ads. But I have seen Revenge the TV show a few times and it's all about exposing sins of the past. The Revenge ad pictures the entire cast.
    Gee I wish there had been an "I Dream of Jeannie" perfume when that show was on air.

    Oh, I guess I'm out of the pop culture loop. That goes to show I don't fit the demographic.

    You're so right about 'Jeanie'. Barbara Eden would have made a fine spokesperson and that bottle would have been ahead of its time!

    Just for fun some shots inside the famous bottle.
