Tropes:

  • A Day in the Limelight: Minnie is the star of this episode, with Mickey only getting a short cameo at the end.

  • Beauty Is Never Tarnished: This is subverted towards the end. To get rid of the powerful perfume smell that is attractive everyone to her, she makes use of smelly cheese, rotten milk, garbage, mud, and a skunk to drive them away.
  • Disney Creatures of the Farce: Minnie sings joyfully as a couple of bluebirds perch on her fingers... then lets out a shriek when a hundred bluebirds completely envelop her.
  • Everything Talks: Happens when Minnie uses the perfume. Even The Man in the Moon
  • From Bad to Worse: When Minnie learns that it is her perfume that is attracting everyone and everything in town to her, she tries to throw it away, only for it to bounce back and hit her, shattering the bottle and just COVERING her in the perfume. Oh, Crap!...
  • Green Around the Gills: Mickey's reaction to Minnie's new outfit and smell.

  • Half-Dressed Cartoon Animal: Lampshaded when Minnie decides the best thing to wear is a black shirt which happens to blend in perfectly with her body.
  • The Man in the Mirror Talks Back: Minnie's reflection warns her about using too much perfume, but she doesn't listen.
  • Meaningful Name: The perfume Minnie uses is called "Enchantment". It is more than just a fancy name of a perfume. Minnie learns the hard way that the more she puts it on, the more attracted everyone, and everything, is towards her. It enchants the whole city when she accidentally dumps the entire bottle on herself.
  • Mythology Gag: The old Mickey Mouse theme song "Minnie's Yoo-Hoo" is heard throughout the short. Without the lyrics, of course.
  • Noodle Incident: Minnie's refelection warns her about overdoing the Enchantment perfume and tries to bring up "that time in Barbados," but Minnie flips the mirror over to silence her.

  • Nude-Colored Clothing: When Minnie is looking for something to wear for her date, her reflection offers her a simple solution: a black shirt that matches with Minnie's chest.
  • Pimped-Out Dress: Minnie's third dress. She said it was too much.
  • Self-Deprecation: When Minnie is deciding on what dress to wear, one of them is her pink dotted dress from Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, which she derides for being "too young".
  • Smelly Skunk: Minnie uses a skunk's stink as one of the methods to get rid of her perfume smell.
  • Special Edition Title: The title card reads "Minnie Mouse" instead of the usual "Mickey Mouse".
  • The Man in the Moon: Talks to Minnie, his reaction to the perfume is "Aromatic, yeah!"
  • Visible Odor: Minnie wears a pink odor thanks to her perfume, and then a green odor when she deliberately dirties herself.
  • Zerg Rush: The ending where Minnie is chased by everyone entranced by her new perfume, forcing her to dirty herself up to get rid of them.
