Jean Seberg (Kristen Stewart) keeps an intriguing orange box on the mirrored vanity in her Parisian home.
The writing on the box (Parfums de France) and the illustrations on it say it all: it’s a collection of miniature perfume and bath oil samples from the 1950s.
This set doesn’t include famous French perfumes, but fragrances created by Charrier Parfums to resemble or sound like popular perfumes.

Very interesting! I have a little bottle of ‘Vogade’ by Charrier on my desk before me — a gift from a colleague who picked it up for me for £1 at a jumble sale. I was curious about its provenance.
The story of Charrier perfumes is fascinating. I have a feeling Jean Seberg didn’t use them, though, so the choice of putting a miniature set on her bathroom shelf is quite unusual.
