In 1994, he also had a leading role in one part of Quentin Tarantino's acclaimed Pulp Fiction[10] (the film has three-parts story); the film's huge success gave a new boost to his career. In 1996, he was the executive producer and star of the cartoon Bruno the Kid which featured a CGI representation of himself.[29] That same year, he starred in Mike Judge's animated film Beavis and Butt-head Do America with his then-wife Demi Moore. In the movie, he plays a drunken criminal named "Muddy Grimes", who mistakenly sends Judge's titular characters to kill his wife, Dallas (voiced by Moore). He then played the lead roles in 12 Monkeys (1995) and The Fifth Element (1997). However, by the end of the 1990s his career had fallen into another slump with critically panned films like The Jackal, Mercury Rising, and Breakfast of Champions, saved only by the success of the Michael Bay-directed Armageddon which was the highest-grossing film of 1998 worldwide.[30] The same year his voice and likeness were featured in the PlayStation video game Apocalypse.[31] In 1999, Willis then played the starring role in M. Night Shyamalan's film, The Sixth Sense, which was both a commercial and critical success.[10]

Wenig später verbreiteten den Phönizier, welche als tüchtiges Seefahrervolk bekannt waren, die Parfümduftstoffe im gesamten Mittelmeerraum, Afrika und in Asien. In Rom wurde das Parfum schließlich zum alltäglichen Gebrauch genutzt und galt als Zeichen von Reichtum und Sauberkeit. Erst im Mittelalter wurde das Parfüm so hergestellt und verwendet wie wir es heute kennen. Von nun an galt die Nutzung von Parfüm als tägliches Schönheitsritual, das im Hochmittelalter in vielen Gedichten und Liedern zum Ausdruck kam. Zu dieser Zeit entwickelte sich auch das Berufsbild des Parfümmeisters, der in hübsch arrangierten Boutiquen seine Duftkreationen verkaufte.
