Lupin S02E03 (Chapitre 8)

Juliette (Léa Bonneau) is sitting at her dressing table and is putting lipstick on.

The lipstick she’s using is Chanel Rouge Coco Shine.

When her father Hubert (Hervé Pierre) joins her to start a conversation, we can see there are some objects on the table.

First, a bottle of Guerlain Shalimar, the 1925 classic by Jacques Guerlain.

There are also a MAC jar (it could be Paint Pot cream eyeshadow or Fluidline gel eyeliner) and a Dior lip colour, possibly Dior Addict Lip Tattoo or Lip Maximizer.

Thank you to Alessandra for the screencaps and the Shalimar id.

Sublet (2020)

When Michael arrives in Tel Aviv, he moves into Tomer’s apartment, which he has rented for five days. One of the first things he does is putting his own toiletries into a mirrored cabinet he finds in the bathroom.

Among Tomer’s toiletries, which Michael moves to one shelf of the cabinet, there’s an almost empty bottle of Lacoste Essential Sport, launched in 2009.

On Michael’s side we can see a spray can of Coppertone Sport sunscreen, a travel-size bottle of Cetaphil moisturizing lotion, a tube of Kiehl’s Facial Fuel sunscreen and a mini-bottle of Le Labo shower gel.

Thanks to Rachael for the Le Labo id.

False Positive (2021)

When Adrian (Justin Theroux) “saves” his wife Lucy (Ilana Glazer) from an allucinating bath, we can see a Diptyque bottle on the tiled counter.

After much pondering (the back of the bottle is not clearly visible), I’ve come to the conclusion that it’s the eau de parfum version of Philosykos, created by Olivia Giacobetti and launched in 2012. The fact that the illustration includes a fountain tank (reminiscent of the bath tub where the protagonist hallucinates) reinforces my idea.

On the tiled shelf over the tub there’s another Diptyque product – a Pomander candle.

Thanks to Alessandra for the screencaps and ids.

Maria’s Lovers (1984)

There are two interesting products on the mantelpiece in the room where the protagonist (Nastassja Kinski) is getting ready.

The first is a perfume box by Dana. The name of the perfume is impossible to read: I believe it’s Tabu, the legendary “parfum de puta” created by Jean Carles and launched in 1932. The film is set in 1946, though, so the box could contain other Dana perfumes – the chypre fruity 20 Carats (1933), the amber Emir (launched in 1935) and the floral Chantilly (1941).

The other product is a round cardboard box of Coty Airspun loose face powder.

There’s a Diptyque Baies box on a glass shelf in Limi’s bathroom, a space which features mosaics on the walls and a gorgeous flamingo wallpaper.

When Limi is reunited with her lover Tamio (Tadanobu Asano), we can see that the Diptyque candles by the washbasin are Baies (two of them), Roses and another one which I can’t identify because the front label is not visible. From the colour of the wax I think it could be Opopanax.
