    Thank you, Robin! I recently viewed the one for Aviance where she’s been a good mom all day but she’s going to have and Aviance night.

    • Robin says:

      Ha. When I’m a good mom all day I mostly want to collapse in bed after.

    It’s no Mandom, but it’s pretty cheesy nevertheless.

    • Robin says:

      Nothing will ever beat Mandom.

    I’m exhausted just listening to the song.

    • Robin says:

      Wore me out too. When does she get to sit down with a nice cup of tea?

      • bergere says:

        When does her sweetie make and bring her a nice cup of tea? ;-)

    What did Enjoli smell like?

    • Robin says:

      Ack. I must have had a bottle at some point in my life, but I can’t remember.

    • RusticDove says:

      I only remember that it was VERY STRONG. Jontue was out at the same time and I wore both of them. It’s really hard to recall what they smelled like.

      • Robin says:

        I remember Jontue a bit better — and pretty sure I’d recognize it if I smelled it again. Enjoli, no.

    This commercial got so much airplay during my childhood/early teen years that I realize watching it how emblazoned on my memory all the moves (the fry-it-up-in-a-pan-shimmy) are.

    Really, an iconic (and probably highly effective) ad even though it looks somehow kitschy to us now. Loved this and the very artsy No. 5 ads that played in the early 80s.

    • Robin says:

      Yes! I might be crazy, but it seems like we don’t get iconic ads like this for the mass market any more.

      • Julia says:

        Exactly! How many of us can still sing the Charlie song? Kinda here, kinda now – Charlie! Kinda young, kinda wow – Charlie! The kind of fragrance that’s here to stay and they call it – Charlie! Thank goodness it wasn’t here to stay.

    Boy, this one takes me back to when a man was a man, and a jingle was a jingle. Does anyone remember the commercials for “British Sterling”? A long haired Godiva-esque brunette dressed in medieval robes rode a white horse across a field, carrying a silver salver bearing a bottle of the eponymous scent, while another lady warbled “Bring him British Sterling” in the background … it was great.

    • Robin says:

      I will have to hunt for that on YouTube!
