Ad for Diesel - Bad. Just seen it on TV and just think "what the hell were they thinking?" Saying that, perfume/aftershave ads tend to make me shake me head anyway.

All perfume/aftershave ads are pathetic

Yip, there's another around at the moment that just has a woman on her own just rolling around ever so sexily - just as we tend to do when we are left to our own devices. Wonder if these models/actresses get mortified.

I don't know. The Johnny Depp ad hits the spot. Sauvage - yes please

TheSparrowhawk Tue 20-Dec-16 16:54:15

Wow, so it's basically saying 'wear this perfume and be an absolutely massive raging cock.' That woman would just tell him fuck the fuck off to the far side of fuck.

I despise this ad.

But then theyre all just bollocks now. Look at Charlize Theron gabbling twaddle about 'I touch the water, I see the sun and it says run' (or some such shite) in the jadore ad. Utter guff.

Oh how funny! What a sap she looks, lapping up all his lines.

I too hate that ad. The message it gives is men can behave like absolute shits and the women will still love them. Coz you know, we are just young scallywags at heart. Bless us! fhmm

That is terrible but all perfume and aftershave ads are. That one has to be down there with the worst though. Does anyone really watch these ads and feel inspired to buy the product? They must work for someone.

YANBU it's awful. Message = "I'm a test if that's ok?". Doors woman bats her eyelids.

The Jonny Depp one is worse. When he digs a hole in the desert I always think "is that where he's gonna hide the fact that he's an alcoholic woman beater?" Twat

CherryChasingDotMuncher Tue 20-Dec-16 17:10:42

Test? I meant twat!

Mr Mack sums up nicely for me from 1.13 here

"What does it fucking smell like" grin

Yep, wife beaters are so sexy hmm

iklboodolphRedNoseReindeer Tue 20-Dec-16 17:19:57

There's the one that goes on 'Si to this, so to that' and ends up 'si to myself'. Which sounds like 'see to myself' - a euphemism for masturbation round here....

I think I'd laugh in his face if he gave me that speech. Especially because he looks like a fourteen year old with a bum fluff moustache.

I do find the acting very impressive though.

I fucking hate all perfume adverts. Except the one with Gerald Butler obviously They are all naff and I'm quite vocal about it. They're basically all the same man/woman kissing shit. Why can't they come up with anything original??

CherryChasingDotMuncher Tue 20-Dec-16 18:05:12

Yes TheNew I would really be more inclined to try a perfume if the advert was of a woman saying"Here is Dior's new fragrance, it's called Lustre, it's quite musky with a hint of rose so if that's the kind of smell you like pop down to Boots and see if it's for you. Goodbye"

scaryclown Tue 20-Dec-16 18:12:57

It should just be called 'COCK'

scaryclown Tue 20-Dec-16 18:18:58

Seriously though, i suspect they are selling this to boys who want to be men. and this fragrance is basically the 'brut'/blue stratos entry to the diesel brand.

In a related issue..WTF has happened to the Diesel brand? it used to be edgy exciting and sometimes odd.. now its like Top Man.. only everything is grey...

CherryChasingDotMuncher Tue 20-Dec-16 18:20:53

I agree scary their market is wannabe bad lads.

"You'll never know where I live" it's with your mum though eh love?

The Johnny Depp one where he appears to offer a 'sorevaage'. Erm, not from you thanks John!

Another one is the one where the geezer wins a trophy and carries it on his shoulder (what a knobber, it probably weighs less than a coffee mug) into a changing room filled with nubile beauties who OBVIOUSLY want to boff him. Cue his raised eyebrow at what is implied to happen next. Seriously!?!

I can't understand why perfume ads appear to be all about rolling around nekkid or men attempting to look vaguely dangerous.

Why can't they just be someone walking around looking and smelling nice? Without tits, pecs or weird monologues about how dangerous and/or sexy they are.

Must sppeal to male fantasies - whilst the women are sitting snortting and rolling our eyes!

What? You say you don't roll around on a beach / satin sheets with perfect smokey make up and lush locks... you spray it whilst wearing jeans and a ponytail?!? This perfume is so not for you!!
