whatwomenwant_bornunicorn (8)The protagonist’s ex-wife, Gigi (Lauren Holly) loves perfumes and beauty products: her busy dressing table proves it.

lorealobaobubblebath_bornunicornThere’s a bottle of L’Oreal Obao bubble bath on Jeanne’s bath tub. This product, advertised in France as “le bain de mousse à la japonaise”, was launched in 1963; its name was inspired to o-furo, the traditional Japanese bath.

givenchy_amarigesilkbodyveil_bornunicornIt’s unclear whether it contains the Perfumed Dew refreshing body lotion or the Silk Body Veil. Both are quite rare products. The Givenchy perfume was created by Dominique Ropion and launched in 1991: it’s an opulent white floral scent with notes of fresh fruit and a warm woody base.

Thanks to my Instagram friend Mustapha for posting this picture on his account and for the screencap.
