Breakfast at Tiffany’s (1961)


There are two Revlon red nail polishes 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 with white stopper is Desert Flower, a Shulton perfume launched in 1947.

The black tall bottle is a René Lalique creation housing D’Orsay Mystère, a chypre fragrance launched in 1915.

On the right side of the table there are four Lucien Lelong perfumes. 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.

      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 https://www.bonanza.com/items/like/442415750/Vintage-Blue-Grass-By-Elizabeth-Arden-Perfume-Bottle-3-3-4-Tall
        Thank you for your reply and I love your work
