I see it all clearly now.<quoted text>
Because the top and most covetted perfumes are French. Some of the most desired fragrances can only be bought in their Paris boutiques.
On the American ebay site, they actually have women who take orders from US citizens and then they go to paris and buy the perfumes... these women make their living that way.
Guerlain, Chanel, Frederic Malle, Serge Lutens, Shizido are all french and they are the best.
So even the makes of "Britney Spears" perfume want to have an association with France in their adverts.
That's the answer.
French accents are horrible and so is the language, in my opinion.
