Topāzu (1992)

There are three interesting products on Ai’s table.

The first from the left is Yves Saint Laurent Paris, the floral powdery fragrance created by Sophia Grojsman and launched in 1983.

The glass bottle with white stopper is Clarins Huile Anti-Eau body treatment oil.

Last, a bottle of Chanel liquid foundation, possibly Teint Naturel.

Windfall (2022)

There’s a lovely selection of Chanel perfumes, skincare and make-up on the Wife’s dressing table.

First on the left, an elegant jar of frosted glass with glossy black and gold cap containing the No. 5 body lotion.

Next, No. 5 eau de toilette in the tall bottle with black stopper. Not sure if this is a vintage splash bottle, the modern spray bottle or the spray refill for the atomiser.

There’s also a bottle of Hydra Beauty lotion.

The only item of make-up is Les Beiges Teint Belle Mine Naturelle healthy-glow foundation.

Last on the far right, a classic spray bottle of No. 5 eau de parfum.

Thanks to Jessica for first posting this on her Instagram account and for allowing me to share it.

Tre piani (2021)

Dora (Margherita Buy) helps Monica (Alba Rohrwacher) give a bath to her newborn baby. There are several interesting products in the room.

First, the unexpected presence of Hermès Concentré d’Orange Verte on the wall shelf. This citrus unisex fragrance was created by Jean Guichard and launched in 2004.

The white bottle on the bath-tub shelf is an Italian baby-care product, BabyGella body wash.

The red bottle with white stopper on the glass wall shelf is Clarins Eau Dynamisante, created by Jacques Courtin-Clarins and launched in 1987.

The green bottle is the iconic Roberts Borotalco talcum powder.

The bottle with white round stopper is Chicco Acqua di Colonia, an eau de cologne for children.

Tre piani (2021)

Dora (Margherita Buy) is taking a bath in Luigi’s bathroom. The three bottles behind her are Italian drugstore products.

The transparent bottles are both by Omia Laboratoires: one is the aloe vera body wash, the other is the tea tree oil shampoo.

The blue bottle is the Blue Iris foam bath by Perlier.

Silent Night (2021)

Several beauty products and toiletries can be seen in the bathroom where twins Thomas and Hardy are having a bath.

On the shelf behind Simon (Matthew Goode) we can see Jo Malone body & hand wash and a jar of body crème.

On the same shelf there’s also a pump bottle of Ortigia Neroli shower gel.

Last, a tube of Oral B Pro Expert toothpaste.

Judy (2019)

The bathroom of the London hotel where Judy Garland (Renee Zellweger) is staying hides two British gems – both by Floris.

The first bottle on the left sitting on the top glass shelf is a Floris perfume. Unable to tell more about the exact fragrance, but the tall stopper is quite distinctive.

On the bottom shelf sits another Floris product – the concentrated bath essence in the big pyramid-shaped bottle with gold stopper.

On the bottom shelf there’s another bottle decorated with what looks like a ribbon. If so, it could be a Penhaligon’s fragrance, possibly Cornubia, a spectacular white floral launched in 1910 and now sadly discontinued.

Thanks to Scentimentalist for the Floris id and Rocco for the screencaps.

Imagine Me & You (2005)

There’s a bottle of Chanel Allure in Rachel’s bathroom. The floral fragrance by Jacques Polge was launched in 1996. Next to it there’s a bottle of Bvlgari Pour Femme, a powdery creation by Sophia Grojsman launched in 1994.

By the bath tub there’s Clarins Huile “Anti-Eau” body treatment oil.

Thanks to Hannah for the Bvlgari id.

Silent Night (2021)

Twins Hardy and Thomas are taking a bath. On the white dresser on the left there are several products by Ortigia, a Florence-based company founded in 2006 by English enterpreneur Sue Townsend (one of the founders of Crabtree & Evelyn in 1968).

The amber pump bottle with palms printed on it is Zagara liquid soap.

The turquoise box contains almond soap, while the pale blue one contains Florio soap.

Last, the beautiful round tin box contains Florio body cream.

Sleeping with the Enemy (1991)

Martin is an abusive and controlling husband. His wife Laura takes advantage of a stormy evening sail to fake her own death and leave him. But he eventually finds her thanks to a phone call he receives from Vanessa, a woman who took swimming lessons with Laura at YWCA.

When Martin gets home, he obsessively looks for signs of Laura’s staged death. The bathroom has an important function: after cutting his finger, he gets close to the toilet and there, at the bottom, he finds Laura’s wedding ring, which she got rid of before leaving. Most of the products in the bathroom cabinets are by Crabtree & Evelyn, a British brand founded in 1968.

The seashell object is Crabtree & Evelyn sea shell soap with jojoba oil.

The round plastic box is Jean Couturier Coriandre dusting powder. This fragrance, a creation by Jacqueline Couturier, Jean-Louis Sieuzac and Gerard Pelpel, was first launched in 1973.

It’s hard to say if the Crabtree & Evelyn Aloe Vera box contains a bath & shower gel, a talcum powder shaker or another product of that line.

In the cabinet there are two boxes of Crabtree & Evelyn chamomile and Swiss glicerine soap.

There’s also a box of Crabtree & Evelyn Extract of West Indian and Sicilian Limes.

The round box with violets contains a perfumed glycerine soap by Crabtree & Evelyn.

Last, there’s a bottle of Johnson’s baby oil.

Thanks to Jennifer for the Jean Couturier id.

Death Becomes Her (1992)

This is one of those posts that have been sitting in my drafts for a long time. I’ve recently got two requests to cover this scene (Madeleine emptying her white Chanel bag on the passenger’s seat of her car), so I guess the time to publish it has finally come.

The white jar with pink lid on the left is from the Christian Dior Hydra-Dior skincare line.

The gold tube is Estee Lauder Re-Nutriv hand cream (old packaging).

The white brush with black and gold handle is Le Fin du Fin sensational make-up brush by Lancôme.

The perfume bottle with sparkling stopper is White Diamonds by Elizabeth Taylor, a floral aldehyde fragrance by Carlos Benaim launched in 1991.

The jar with gold lid is another product by Lancôme. It probably contains a liquid foundation which I have no memory of, or maybe a moisturizer.

The lipstick in the red tube is Velvet Touch by Revlon (old packaging).

The lipstick in the white case looks like Clarins lipsticks from the 1990s. I’m not 100% sure of my ID but it’s my best guess.
