Richard Madoc tries to convince the muse Calliope to help him with his writer’s block by giving her gifts. Among them there’s a bottle of Jean Paul Gaultier Scandal, a floral chypre fragrance created by Daphné Bugey, Fabrice Pellegrin and Christophe Raynaud and launched in 2017.
There are two interesting perfumes on Lyta’s dressing table. And they are very much so because this scene has an unusual setting: this table is in the house that Lyta’s deceased husband Hector has built for them in the Dreaming.
They are probably perfumes that the woman already wears on the ordinary plan of reality or maybe they have been selected to be worn in a different dimension.
The first fragrance (boxed) is Chanel Coco eau de toilette. It’s an amber spicy creation by Jacques Polge, first launched in 1984.
The second, in the gold bottle, is the extrait de parfum of Yves Saint Laurent Cinéma, an amber floral fragrance created by Jacques Cavallier and launched in 2004.
Toiletries and medicine bottles cover the two dressing tables seen in the film. On both occasions three products stand out, all of them by Old Spice.
The two white bottles are an Old Spice travel set: the bottle with white cap contains after-shave talcum, while the one with red cap contains after-shave lotion.
The green bottle with white cap is from the Lime collection, introduced in 1966. From an 1973 catalogue we can see that this introductory-size bottle could contain the after-shave lotion or the cologne.
Deena (Kiara Madeira) is ready for the final battle against her archenemy, Sheriff Nick Goode. While hiding in a bathroom at the Shadyside Mall, she chooses Calvin Klein CK One to cover up her scent.
No surprises here: what other mainstream fragrance could a teenager choose for such a purpose in 1994? The citrus aromatic creation by Alberto Morillas and Harry Fremont was launched in that year: housed in a minimalistic flask, it took the fragrance world and the collective imagination by storm.
When Josh (Benjamin Flores Jr.) hugs Deena, his comment on how she smells like will go down in history as the most accurate description of CK One. I have never felt like an “androgynous baby” when I wear it, but it really makes sense.
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.
