    Default What is Your Favorite Male Perfume Ad?

    I know, I know, we are all serious collectors and we are not affected by the seductive powers of perfume advertisements. But I love the sensuality that is found in so many ads.....it is an illusion, but it is a beautiful illusion. I therefore ask you what is your favorite male perfume ad. If possible, send the youtube link OR photo.

    Here is mine:

    I’ve never watched any ads, but I do see Bleu De Chanel signing quite a bit and it always looks nice.

    Most likely (though not exclusively, due to being simply an all time favorite already) any ads Armani Eau pour Homme, followed quite closely-almost sharing a fairly equal and more than respectable second spot-any ads for Bogart Furyo and for Guerlain Heritage.
    Since the quality and creativeness of the ads manage to match, to quite successfully equal the one of the respective fragrances in both latter cases.

    Thank you for the reply, albeit did so far not find much apart from these YT videos (whatever each mean, therefore any BN contributor is free to interpret these how they like)

    Mandom, the last thing many 70s perps smelled.

    Otherwise only really remember the Egoiste one. Well, and the Depp and Pitt ones.

    Horribly pandering and maybe sexist, but it sure does draw me in.
    Never bought it though.

    The original EGOISTE ad made me nuts to get my hands on the scent. I think the frenzy this sent me into was my first grasp that I was a frag head, though in 1990 I had no idea there was such a thing...

    It was airing for weeks before it was available in stores. They spent a lot of money on this ad.

    He succeeded in what he wanted to do: draw attention. I never bought it either.

    It is pornographic. Nothing against pornography, though.

    Egoiste. By far. It's the only perfume ad that's ever really made an impression on me.

    Definitely the Obsession for Men by Calvin Klein in the 80’s - most of them shot by Herb Ritts.

    This one sticks in my head: https://www.ebay.com/itm/1991-OBSESS...-/281325693875

    I also love the Le Male ads, especially the ones from the 90s. The director, Jean-Baptiste Mondino, is one of my favorites. He's also directed many of my favorite music videos.

    This one is kitsch, provocative and dreamy, with the cheesy but clever nod at the end to the 1938 film, Le quai des brumes. The man in the ad says "Tu sens bon, tu sais?" (You smell good, you know). The protagonist of Quai des brumes, Jean Gabin, has a famous kissing scene where he says "T'as des beaux yeux, tu sais?" (You have beautiful eyes, you know).

    Here is a pretty cool mash-up of the a Fahrenheit commercial from the 80s and another one that looks like it's from the last decade:

    Yes, I like that one too. Did you notice how the woman takes the lead in the Making-Out session with the sailor, as if she were the man and he were the girl?

    images.jpg. Just sort of says it all. There is another Halston ad I love that is similar to Bavard's choice--just Z-14 and 1-12 next to each other--let the product speak for itself.

    Not that anyone asked, but this is one of my favorite feminine perfume ads.

    I love the Dolce and Gabbana 'gang bang' ads...although when I posted the images on that other fragrance site I ended up being banned.

    Personally I think they are far more subversive and dangerous than Tom Ford calling a fragrance 'Fucking Fabulous'

    I was about to say I've never seen a fragrance ad that resonated with me in any way... but this one stopped me dead in my tracks. I'd never seen it before. It's fantastic.

    On the other end of the spectrum... the D&G ads above are everything that's wrong with fragrance advertising and the toxic masculinity aspects of certain parts of the fragrance community.
