Will (Noah Schnapp), Mike (Finn Wolfhard) and Lucas (Caleb McLaughlin) are at the Starcourt Mall sampling perfumes. They haven’t suddenly turned into scent enthusiasts, but are trying to find something Mike can buy for Eleven as a gift.
The white boxes with pastel touches and “draped” bottles are Louis Féraud Vivage. This perfume, created by Jean-Pierre Bethouart and launched in 1984, was the result of a collaboration between the French fashion designer and Avon. Heavy on musk and ylang-ylang, this is definitely not a perfume for a young girl.
In the window under the counter more Avon perfumes are displayed.
The bottle with black stopper is a men’s fragrance, the musky Black Suede, launched in 1980.
On the right, the bottle with silver “hook” stopper is Tempo, a woody fragrance launched in 1978.
Last, hidden among boxes, there’s the unmistakable flat-top bottle of a true 1980s classic – Guy Laroche Drakkar Noir, the aromatic woody fragrance created by Pierre Wargnye and launched in 1982, incredibly popular all through the decade.
