There are two perfume bottles in Marcello’s bathroom.
The one with the gold stopper is a fragrance by L’Artisan Parfumeur (old packaging): the sticker on the bottle is unreadable but it’s pink, so it could be Jour de Fête, created in 2004 by Olivia Giacobetti.
The second bottle is unmistakable: it’s Hermès Terre d’Hermès, one of the masterpieces by Jean-Claude Ellena, launched in 2006.
In June 2019 Madonna released God Control, a music video directed by Jonas Åkerlund which is a ferocious attack against the violence that characterises American society and its strenuous defense of the Second Amendment.
In the screenshot above the singer is getting ready to spend a night out. On her mirrored vanity there are two interesting perfume bottles.
The bottle with clear stopper on the far left is Robert Piguet Fracas extrait de parfum, one of Madonna’s favourite fragrances, a white floral (tuberose and jasmine) triumph created by Germaine Cellier and launched in 1948.
Behind Fracas there’s a massive Jean Patou factice bottle. It’s unusual because of the shape of it and of its stopper, which is uncharacteristically round and not oblong, as we can see on this vintage flacon of Moment Suprême. I haven’t been able to identify it, so any help would be welcome.
Nick (Michael Douglas) is spending the night at Catherine’s so, when he goes into her huge bathroom, we know some intriguing products will be featured.
The first beauty product I’ve noticed is a spray can of Evian mineral water.
The tall pump bottle is by Alba Botanica. Unfortunately I haven’t been able to find any picture of it online, so I have no idea what product it was. Probably a body lotion or a face cleanser.
Next there’s a Clinique anti-perspirant roll-on deodorant.
This is a real treat: we get to see the fragrance used by Catherine! It’s Montana Parfum de Peau in the beautiful spiral bottle (a stunning design by Serge Mansau). This leather fragrance, created by Jean Guichard, was launched in 1986 and it still is one of the most aenigmatic scents of that decade; that is why I think it beautifully compliments the protagonist’s mysterious and wild personality.
The container on the far right is still a mystery: when I first saw it, I was sure it was part of the Parfum de Peau line (a body lotion or talcum powder), but it’s not. If you have any idea about its identity, please drop me a line.
Diana Barrie (Maggie Smith) is a British actress who is in Los Angeles after getting her first Oscar nomination. While she’s sitting in her in-suite bathroom at the Beverly Hills Hotel, we can see several toiletries on the pink marble counters around her.
