Taking the spotlight in the ad for Tresor Midnight Rose perfume, the 'Harry Potter' beauty sends French actor Cyril Descours running along the Seine to return the hat she left at his bookstore.
A new commercial for Lancome's new fragrance, Tresor Midnight Rose, has made its way out online. Bringing an air of mystery to the perfume ad that is presented as a mini-movie was "Harry Potter" beauty Emma Watson as she catches the attention of French actor Cyril Descours.
Shot by Mario Testino on the streets of Paris, the film tells a story of romance and fate with a touch of magic. It begins with scene of Cyril running on the street to the Seine before flashing back to the moment when Emma accidentally leaves her hat behind in the bookstore where he works.
Speaking of the mini-movie in a behind-the-scene video for the ad, the 21-year-old beauty said, "What I love about this story that we put together is that it's almost fate, like chance, that brings the two of them together." She added, "You never know what's going to be around the corner. That's what we wanted to get across in the fragrance: that life is magical with little surprises."
