Glow S03E08 (Keep Ridin’)

Bash Howard (Chris Lowell), heir to the Howard Foods business empire and producer of GLOW, is one of my favourite characters of the show, so a scene set in his bathroom was very much welcomed by yours truly, who couldn’t wait to take a look at his beauty products. First on the left of the marble top, there’s a bottle of Ralph Lauren Polo, the aromatic … Continue reading Glow S03E08 (Keep Ridin’)

Stranger Things S03E02 (The Mall Rats)

Will (Noah Schnapp), Mike (Finn Wolfhard) and Lucas (Caleb McLaughlin) are at the Starcourt Mall sampling perfumes.

Pose S02E03 (Butterfly/Cocoon)

There’s a flacon montre of Guerlain Shalimar cologne in the dressing room of the club where Candy works as pole dancer. It’s clear Ryan Murphy, Pose’s showrunner, is a fan of the Guerlain perfume: you may remember it was mentioned in American Horror Story: Hotel (it was Ramona Royale’s signature scent) and in American Horror Story: Roanoke (it was used by Lee Harris).
