Miami Vice S01E02 (Heart of Darkness)


miamivice2_s01e02_bornunicornpatoupourhomme_bornunicornIn the opening sequence of this episode, we learn what the super-hot Miami undercover agents Sonny Crockett and Rico Tubbs smell like. They’re getting ready to go to work (at night, of course, on Sonny’s black 1972 Ferrari Daytona Spyder 365 GTS/4) and both of them wear perfume. Sonny opts for a bold power scent – Jean Patou Pour Homme, an oriental fougère. Launched in 1980, it includes notes of lavender, clary sage and basil (top), patchouli, geranium, vetiver and fir (middle) and leather, civet, vanilla and tonka bean (base).





Rico wears a more traditional, less in-your-face perfume – Grey Flannel by Geoffrey Beene, an oriental woody fragrance created by Andre Fromentin and launched in 1975. It includes notes of galbanum, neroli, petitgrain, bergamot and lemon (top), mimosa, iris, violet, sage, rose, geranium and narcissus (middle), tonka bean, almond, oakmoss, vetiver and cedar (base).

The song in the opening is Devo’s Going Under, from the album New Traditionalists (1981).
