Zachary Quinto has recently posted this picture on his Instagram account. It’s not clear whether the bathroom he’s standing in is his own; it would be interesting to know because there’s a beautiful display of perfume bottles in it.
Three bottles are by Le Labo: one of them contains 100ml of perfume, the other two 50ml of perfume. Unfortunately only one front label is visible: one of the smallest bottles is Another 13.
The tallest bottle with the black stopper is an eau de parfum by Diptyque. The front label is not visible, but I like to think it’s Tempo, the wonderful patchouli fragrance by the French label.
Benigno Martín (Javier Cámara) is a personal nurse and caregiver: he looks after Alicia Roncero, a beautiful dancer he has been obsessed with even before she was in a coma. When he opens a cabinet in the girl’s hospital room to take a Pina Bausch’s autographed picture, we can see the products he uses on her.
Three of them are by Shiseido. The red drop-shaped bottle is Energizing Fragrance, a floral eau aromatique created by Claudette Belnavis and launched in 1999.
The tall bottles are from the Relaxing Fragrance line: the one on the left (with the shorter stopper) is the body lotion, while the one in the foreground is the fragrance. Hugely successful in the late 1990s (I used it myself for a while), it’s a floral green scent released in 1997.
There are some Chanel lipglosses on the left side of the cabinet, too.
And then a limited-edition bottle of Jean Paul Gaultier Classique, the powdery white floral masterpiece by Jacques Cavallier, first launched in 1993.
One of the sales assistants at the Black’s Fifth Avenue perfume counter holds a tall bottle of Lucien Lelong Indiscret eau de cologne. The eau de parfum version, created by Jean Carles, was launched in 1936.
