La voz humana (2020)

The Woman (Tilda Swinton) is applying mascara in front of a round mirror. The bathroom she’s in is tiled in different colours and is full of beauty products and toiletries.

Starting from the left red-tiled niche, I’ve identified:

Rochas Eau de Rochas bath and shower gel

Chanel La Crème Main hand cream

Perlier Honey Miel bath and shower cream and Thai Coco body lotion

Chanel Paris-Biarritz shower gel

Moving right, there’s the blue-tiled niche, where there are two hair products:

John Frieda Luxurious Volume Touchably Full conditioner

L’Oreal Extraordinary Oil oil-in-milk leave-in hair cream

Now there’s the washbasin counter, packed with bottles of medicines.

The first perfume bottle I’ve spotted is Hermès Eau de Citron Noir cologne.

Then there’s obviously the Chanel No. 5 factice.

Next, three products by Natura Bissé from the C+C Vitamin line – face cream on the far left, sun protection at the top left corner of the washbasin and micellar cleansing water next to the tap.

There’s also a bottle of Chanel Les Beiges foundation among the medicine bottles.

All the right part of the counter is for Chanel make-up items. So we can see

Joues Contraste powder blush

Rouge Allure red lipstick

A cream blush

Poudre Universelle Libre loose powder

Les 4 Ombres eyeshadow palette in Tissé Camélia

Palette Essentiel in Beige Clair

Les Beiges compact powder

Le Lift Lèvres et Contours firming cream.

Last, two toothpastes in a silver glass

One is Marvis Classic Strong Mint toothpaste.

The other is Verkos Kemphor toothpaste.

Five Feet Apart (2019)

There’s a box of Tonino Lamborghini Invincibile eau de toilette in Will’s bathroom. This fragrance was launched in 2018.

The green pump bottle on the left is Purell hand sanitizer (the front label has been removed).

The plastic bag in the background contains a discontinued product – Walgreens extended-angle floss picks.

Thanks to Emily for the screencap and ids.

Naked (1993)

When Johnny visits the woman in the window (Deborah MacLaren), we can see some beauty products on glass shelf. The brown spray bottle is Vidal Sassoon blow styling lotion. The bottle next to it looks like a talcum powder bottle; it reminds me of Crabtree & Evelyn old packaging, but not sure about it.

The floral bottle with silver stopper surely stirs some nostalgia: it’s the Cacharel best seller Anais Anais, a romantic white floral scent created in 1978 by Roger Pellegrino, Robert Gonnon, Paul Leger and Raymond Chaillan.

Auntie Mame (1958)

Nora (Connie Gilchrist) gets a Guerlain flacon montre of Shalimar cologne as a Christmas present from Mame. Nora is very excited: the fragrance (described as “French-smelling”) will make her feel “like Theda Bara“, one of the most popular and sexiest femme fatales of silent cinema.

Mucho Mucho Amor: The Legend of Walter Mercado (2020)

This documentary presents the aenigmatic and fascinating life of the astrologer Walter Mercado, who was interviewed in his home in Puerto Rico. There’s a domestic shot that piqued my interest, because many beauty products can be seen.

The black and white box is Frulatte Hyalunol anti-aging cream.

There’s also a No.7 box from the Restore and Renew line (old packaging).

The tall plastic bottle is Shea Moisture coconut and hibiscus brightening body lotion.

The polka dot box with gold details contains Carolina Herrera perfume, a white floral creation by Carlos Benaim, Clement Gavarry and Rosendo Mateu, launched in 1988.

The white and grey box is SkinSolve Tighter Clearer Younger anti-aging charcoal overnight cream.

And then there’s a box of Calvin Klein Obsession, the warm spicy fragrance created by Jean Guichard and launched in 1985. I personally thought Walter would have worn something more classic (Shalimar, maybe?), but Obsession is mysterious yet comforting, a description that could well be applied to Walter himself.

Thanks to Scentimentalist for the body lotion and Carolina Herrera ids.

Tacones lejanos (1991)

There are a cream jar and a box from Christian Dior Hydra-Dior skincare line in Becky’s dressing room.

The squared bottle in the background is Tiffany by Tiffany, housed in a beautiful Tiffany blue display box. This perfume, launched in 1987, was created by Francois Demachy.

Thanks to lepetitcivet for the Tiffany id.

Divines (2016)

With the first money Dounia earns from working for Rebecca, she gets a perfume for her mother – Cartier Must de Cartier. The red box with white front label is supposed to be for the eau de parfum version, but the box seen in the film has an odd shape (it’s rectangular and not square). Is this an old packaging or a fake perfume? In any case, this gift makes the girl’s mother overjoyed.
