Log in to Reply Robin says: 3 February 2010 at 12:00 pm I didn’t even notice. It’s not a terribly exciting commercial. Log in to Reply Subhuman says: 3 February 2010 at 11:41 am Lara Stone seems mismatched with this ad somehow. It screams “sexy!”, but Stone doesn’t strike me as such. Like putting an oddball waif from a ’90s Calvin Klein ad in a Farrah wig and platforms. Something doesn’t click. Also, how played out is that “circular wall of mirrors” motif? It’s in every third music video since 2006 and at least a dozen cosmetics commercials. Enough already. Log in to Reply Robin says: 3 February 2010 at 12:01 pm VERY played out. This really bored me, although I wouldn’t blame that on the model.

Log in to Reply Robin says: 3 February 2010 at 12:02 pm I’m afraid I don’t pay much attention to models, so don’t even know who she is. True that she’s not as emaciated as some!

Nothing did. Good thing they kept it to 30 seconds. Log in to Reply jrmetmoi says: 3 February 2010 at 2:15 pm Hi, will this website be reviewing the new Dior Eau Fraiche? Because they’ve relaunched it in Britain anyway, and they’ve changed to a new bottle from the older bottle decades ago. Log in to Reply Robin says: 3 February 2010 at 2:37 pm Yes, they’ve repackaged that whole series (“Les Créations de Monsieur Dior”). Don’t know if we’ll review it or not. Log in to Reply sarahbeth says: 3 February 2010 at 6:08 pm This was one of the most horrid ads I have ever seen! (Bleck!) Compare that to the Shalimar ad with Natalia Vodianova and you will see there is no comparison whatsoever (so actually don’t even compare just view the other one and you will see what I mean…) Log in to Reply Robin says: 3 February 2010 at 6:46 pm You could compare it to almost anything, I should think — it’s just dull. Log in to Reply annemarie says: 4 February 2010 at 2:13 am Yes, thanks for the tip. The Shalimar is a far better ad. But it also covers familiar ground. How often have we seen naked women writing around on beds (and in cars!) brought to near ecstasy (apparently) by fragrance. Quite often, I should say. Or did the Vodianova ad come first? Log in to Reply Craig Su says: 3 February 2010 at 11:25 pm What’s wrong with the narrator? Is she trying to teach the audience to speak english? That’s way too slow to say “Versus (long pause) the new fragrance (long pause) by Versace” Log in to Reply Robin says: 4 February 2010 at 9:25 am It does sound a little odd.
