Chanson douce (2019)

Mila (Assya Da Silva) and her nanny Louise (Karin Viard) standing in the bathroom give us a chance to take a look at the busy shelf by the mirror.

The perfume bottle on the far left is Hermès Un Jardin après la Mousson, a warm spicy eau de toilette created by Jean-Claude Ellena and launched in 2008.

Several products are by Estée Lauder: the first is Sumptuous Extreme mascara.

The second is Double Wear Nude foundation.

Another brand Myriam (Mila’s mother) likes is La Roche-Posay. The white tube on the left is Hydreane Extra Riche thermal spring water cream.

The aqua jar with gold cap is another Estée Lauder product – DayWear Matte oil-control anti-oxidant moisture gel creme.

Moving to the right side of the shelf, we can see a bottle of Weleda toning lotion.

Next, a spray bottle of La Roche-Posay Anthelios SPF30 sunscreen.

Last, the white tube is La Roche-Posay Lipikar anti-dryness body milk.

Right in the centre of the shelf there’s Chanel Rouge Allure lipstick. It’s a very personal item, but Louise doesn’t think twice before wearing it.

Thanks to my reader Sylvinka for submitting this post.

  1. Great post. And includes the only vaguely aquatic perfume Jardin après la Mousson, The name drew me in – having been to India several times but never in monsoon season. Beautiful light spicy cardamom… lovely bottle as well.

    1. Thank you. Despite being a huge fan of Ellena, I have never been particularly attracted to any fragrance of the Jardin series, with this one making no exception. I haven’t tried the latest Jardin à Cythère yet, though

      1. It’s main failing it it’s not very long lasting…. But Monsoon is the best from this line. A ginger & cardamom raincloud. Especially in a hot sultry summer

        1. I like using Diptyque Tam Dao in a hot sultry summer. But I will give Monsoon another chance, just to be sure it’s not for me
