Ich Seh, Ich Seh (2014)

ichsechichsech_bornunicornThere’s a white bottle of Givenchy Amarige in the protagonist’s bathroom.


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.
