I haven’t watched Call Me by Your Name by Luca Guadagnino yet, but I’ve kept the best picture from the set for last. The author is – again – Giulio Ghirardi, who gave us the perfect shot of a dressing table, covered with some fabric from the Middle East.
Among the several perfume bottles, I’ve spotted Christian Dior Eau Sauvage, a 1966 creation by Edmond Roudnitska.
Next to it, there’s Acqua di Parma Colonia, the first fragrance of the Italian brand, created in 1916.
The blue tin unmistakably contains Nivea Creme, a product created in Germany but incredibly popular in Italy.
Another quintessentially Italian product is Roberts Acqua distillata alle rose, a toner first created in 1867.
Last but not least, there’s a bottle of Vanderbilt by Gloria Vanderbilt, a huge commercial success created by Sophia Grojsman in 1982. It’s impossible not to have a memory of it, if you were born in the 1970s/1980s: this white floral fragrance was everywhere!
