A magazine advertisement read:
Why is everyone so fascinated with Ellen? We’ve picked apart her features. And she isn’t beautiful. Her nose is too long and her bottom teeth are crooked. Her hair is just regular brown – you’ll never call it chestnut or auburn. And she certainly isn’t glamorous. So when this guy said “You smell great, Ellen” we almost died. Why is everyone so fascinated with Ellen? Jovan Floral Fragrances – wear them and create your own intrigue.
Oriental Lotus has been discontinued.
