Fragrance started as something that a woman uses. Over the years, men were taught to need the same. Today, perfume is a staple daily accessory for both men and women whatever the occasion may be.

Perfume is thick; it is poison and pure desire.”

Every perfume advertisement needs 6 things: popular face, a plot that spells love all over, seductive language, passionate colours, enchanting sounds, and a display of luxury.
