The Women (1939)

When Sylvia (Rosalind Russell) and Edith (Phyllis Povah) decide to act on the infidelity rumours about their friend Mary’s husband, they pay a visit to the cosmetic department at Black’s Fifth Avenue: there, they intend to meet the alleged mistress, Crystal Allen (Joan Crawford).

When they stop at a perfume counter, some interesting bottles can be seen.

On the mirrored table on the right there’s a factice flacon chauve souris of Guerlain Shalimar, the Jacques Guerlain masterpiece launched in 1925.

In the glass cabinet behind the shop assistant there’s a Guerlain flacon montre containing an eau de cologne.
