A Little Something for the Ladies? Or the Gents?

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Musk oil sure was big in the Seventies. Jovan, Bonne Bell, Coty, and Cutex all made musk fragrances, just to name a few. I remember radio commercials that might have been for Faberge’s Macho Musk Oil, but I’m not sure. I just remember the annoying jingle sung by a male chorus, who just repeated the words “Mucho macho” before breaking into the chorus:

“That man is mucho macho.
That man is mucho macho.
That man is mucho macho.
Mucho macho man!”

Does anyone else remember that commercial?

And what’s with the phallic logo and matching man jewelry? I can imagine the graphic designer coming up with that one: “It spells ‘m-a-c-h-o,’ but it’s shaped like a penis!” The ad says to try Macho Musk Oil on “your next encounter,” which I’m thinking took place in the public men’s room in Central Park. There is something to be said for subtlety, you know.
