A fictitious perfume – Gold Rose by Molinier – is central in the plot of the first episode.
We don’t know exactly what it smells like but it’s housed in a bottle reminiscent of Chanel Chance – same round shape and squared stopper.
The protagonist, former hair stylist Sakura, finds out her husband has been cheating on her with the fascinating Masako (Kyoko Hasegawa) when the woman reveals she’s wearing the same perfume – Molinier Gold Rose.
Poor Sakura (Ryôko Shinohara) in her posh bathroom, still unaware of what life has in store for her.
Hillary (Barbara Hershey) and C. C. (Bette Midler) go out shopping. They stop at a make-up counter, where C.C. tries a L’Oreal lipstick.

Last, the tall bottle with white stopper is the grapefruit toning lotion.
In the middle of the table there are several Phyto-Lip Twist Mat lip colours in pencil form. Zoe (Marta Nieto) uses one of them later in the film.
There’s a long sequence in the film where we’re taken into the bedrooms of Miles Bron’s guests and we get to see what’s in their luggage. In the case of Duke Cody, his bathroom and toiletries are shown.
There’s Herban Cowboy Dusk spray deodorant by the washbasin, along with a cosmetic bag, the content of which is revealed a few moments later.
The black tube next to the Viagra box is Le Labo shaving cream.

When Erica realises her husband has betrayed her, one of the first things she does is clearing their bathroom by getting rid of his toiletries. Among them, two fragrances.
The first is a Christian Dior classic – Eau Sauvage. The citrus aromatic fragrance was created by Edmond Roudnitska and launched in 1966.
The second is another citrus aromatic fragrance – Chanel for Men cologne. Created by Henri Robert, it was launched in 1955 with different names – A Gentleman’s Cologne in United Kingdom, Chanel for Men in the United States and Pour Monsieur in France. In 1989 it was relaunched worldwide as Pour Monsieur.
