Breakfast at Tiffany’s (1961)

There’s a Revlon red nail polish (vintage bottle) on the small shelf in front of the mirror on Holly Golightly’s dressing table.

 On the table there’s a giant flacon bouchon coeur by Guerlain; there’s no label on it, so it’s impossible to know what perfume it contains.

The small bottle is Balalaika, launched in 1939; the tall bottle behind it is Sirocco, launched in 1934; the bottle with the bow-shaped stopper is Jabot, launched in 1939; the bottle in the blue box is Opening Night, launched in 1935.

Thanks to Phyl D in the comments for the Shulton id.

      1. Hi,
        I have other suggestions for you. I think the perfume in the middle of the table is Magie by Lancôme. The perfume with a turquoise stopper is maybe Les Pois de Senteur de chez Moi by Caron and next to the mirror, there is a perfume with a light blue stopper, which is perhaps Blue Grass by Elizabeth Arden
        Thank you for your reply and I love your work
