For the 4th of July: Perry Ellis America, 1996

Spacious skies, amber waves of grain, the open road…this print advertisement for Perry Ellis America (1996, now discontinued) has everything.

“It’s Big. Really Big.”

I’ve never tried either of these his-and-hers fragrances in their eagle-embossed bottles. I doubt that either of them would have thrilled me as a perfume when they were still available. However, looking back, I can’t help but admire their Clinton-era optimism. So much has changed since the mid-90s.

Wishing you a happy Independence Day, however you’re celebrating it.
