In 1985 (year in which this season is set) this perfume was basically everywhere, and it was impossible to escape. This creation by Jean Amic, Jean-Louis Sieuzac and Raymond Chaillan, launched in 1977, took the world of perfumery by storm: the original formula, opulent and spicy, was unlike any other perfume on the market.

The dark red jar next to it is another Avon product – a body lotion. My guess is that the fragrance is Imari, originally launched in 1985, characterised by dark red packaging.
