Divines (2016)

Dounia buys some toiletries for her mother and herself.

The red bottle is Le Petit Marseillais Lait de Coton et Coquelicot (Cotton Milk and Poppy) shower cream.

The gold bottle is Revlon Natural Honey Argan Oil bath and shower gel.

There’s also Ushuaïa Polynésie Huile d’Amandier & Pétales de Néroli (almond oil and neroli petals) deodorant.

Uncut Gems (2019)

montblanclegend_bornunicornHoward Ratner is a gambling addict who runs a jewellery store in the diamond district in New York. He leads a very hectic and dangerous life, as the bruises on his back show. He’s always busy (even when he’s just out of the shower, he’s on the phone) but thanks to this short scene we can take a look at the toiletries and perfumes he uses.

On the right of the screen there’s Montblanc Legend, an aromatic perfume created by Olivier Pescheux and launched in 2011.

gillettefoamy_bornunicornBy the washbasin there are two Old Spice Classic deodorant sticks, Pinaud Clubman after-shave lotion and Gillette Foamy shaving foam.

chanelbleudechanel_bornunicornThis id is just a guess, but I’m pretty sure it’s correct. I think the bottle half-seen between Howard’s arm and chest is Bleu de Chanel, at least judging from the lettering and from the shape of the atomiser. From a historical point of view, this would be an accurate choice: the film is set in 2012, and this Jacques Polge creation was launched in 2010.

The Hunger (1983)

thehunger_bornunicornThe moment in which a movie character opens a bathroom cabinet is always thrilling. I personally get the chills because I know I’m about to see something interesting in it. Sarah Roberts’ cabinet, for example, is a very simple but intriguing one.

guerlain_vetiveraftershave_bornunicornI’m a bit on the fence when it comes to the glass bottle on the bottom shelf. It’s definitely a flacon de voyage by Guerlain (see the plastic ring around the stopper), but the bottle looks larger than usual.

Everybody Wants Some!! (2016)
