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.
Thanks to Phyl D for the Shulton id and to Alessandro for the D’Orsay id.

I think on the left side table, there is a perfume called Tabu by Dana
Thanks for your comment. I’m not sure about Tabu. The stopper used to have a different shape http://www.basenotes.net/photos/members/xl/15108434315513.jpg. Unless they put on a different stopper for the film
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
Thanks for your help and your support. I totally agree on the Caron. I must look into the Arden one
Looks like there’s also a small bottle of Shulton’s “Desert Flower” (white cap and white flower design on bottle). Here’s a link to a 1949 ad for it currently on EBAY:
Thank you for capturing the movie image above, and for all the work that you put into this website. Cheers!
Thank you! I didn’t know this perfume, so thanks for the id. You’re kind for your support. Much appreciated 😘
Hi. Thank you. Very nice blog yours.
In that picture there is also a bottle of Mystère by D’Orsay. The tolat black one with parallelepiped also black stopper.
Thank you! Great news! I will update the post
The model in the Revlon nail polish ad is Carmen Dell’Orefice. She’s now 91 – known as the world’s oldest working model as of the 2012 Spring/Summer season. Amazing!
