The White Lotus S02E04 (In the Sandbox)

Ethan and Harper’s hotel bathroom seems to be the place where meaningful conversations between husband and wife happen, but also the place where dramatic epiphanies happen (in this case Harper suspects Ethan has cheated on her).

The products seen in this scene have already been featured in the previous episodes.

The pump bottle contains Ortigia Ambra Nera bath and shower gel.

There’s also an Ortigia Gattopardo room fragrance diffuser.

The jar contains Clarins Hydra-Essentiel rich cream.

Not a perfume or a skincare product, but I just love the tray where two glasses sit. It’s another Ortigia product: it’s lacquered and handmade.

While Tanya is busy with a tarot reader, her assistant Portia (Haley Lu Richardson) is asked to leave and go to the bathroom. This is a rare occasion in which we can take a look at the products that the most desperate character of the show uses.

The two Ortigia products we see on the marble counter – the Zagara room essence and the Bergamotto eau de parfum – are courtesy of the hotel.

Tanya uses another Italian product – the Aquatic Mint toothpaste by Marvis.

Her skincare includes two products by Eve Lom – the Radiance face oil and the Time Retreat radiance essence.

It’s nice to see the unmistakable blue bottle of an Italian drugstore staple – Roberts Acqua distillata alle rose.

Probably the most surprising item here is the perfume. Tanya wears Paco Rabanne Pure XS, an amber floral fragrance by Quentin Bisch launched in 2018. I expected her to wear something bolder and probably more nostalgic.

Harper (Aubrey Plaza) wakes up early, so she can surprise her husband Ethan when he comes back from his morning running session.

In their marble hotel bathroom we can see toiletries already shown in the first episodes, plus some new items.

The pump bottle with the black palm is Ortigia Ambra Nera bath and shower gel.

The glass bottle next to it is another Ortigia product – the Gatto diffuser.

Harper’s skincare includes Erno Laszlo VTM micro-essence.

There’s also a bottle of MAC Fix + Magic Radiance hydrating spray.

Last, a bottle of Clinique gentle renewing cleansing mousse.

Kärlek & Anarki S01E01 (Hur allt började)

There are so many interesting skincare products on Sofie’s bathroom shelf, most of them by Scandinavian brands.

The white tube on the far left is from the Dermalogica Powerbright line. Unclear if it’s the moisturizer or the overnight cream.

The tall white and grey pump bottle is another Dermalogica product – the special cleansing gel.

The tall baby blue bottle is a product by the Swedish brand Estelle & Thild – the 3-in-1 cleansing foam.

The small glass bottle contains Olaplex No. 7 bonding oil.

The tall bottles with silver caps are other two products by Estelle & Thild. The first from the left is the firming anti-age cream, the second contains the night recovery anti-age cream.

Thanks to a different angle we can see other two Dermalogica products – the Solar Defense Booster SPF50 in the small bottle with grey cap and the Daily Resurfacer exfoliating pouches in the metal jar.

There’s also Byredo Carrousel scented candle in the black jar.

The very last product I have identified is the refining exfoliating toner by the Swedish brand Björk & Berries.

Thanks to my reader Sylvinka for submitting this post.

American Horror Story S10E01 (Cape Fear)

Sarah (Frances Conroy) wants Mickey (Macaulay Culkin) to sleep over and she tries to convince him by listing the perks of her house.

There’s heat (a pretty basic feature) and the scent of Rigaud candles, which is definitely a luxurious touch. Produced by the French perfume house founded in 1852, these candles conjure an atmosphere of decadent wealth, perfectly in tune with the personality of the writer.

Even if we don’t actually see any candle on screen, I imagine Sarah burning Reine de la Nuit, with top notes of gardenia and freesia, middle notes of jasmine, rose and coriander, and a base note of patchouli.

There’s a Diptyque Baies box on a glass shelf in Limi’s bathroom, a space which features mosaics on the walls and a gorgeous flamingo wallpaper.

When Limi is reunited with her lover Tamio (Tadanobu Asano), we can see that the Diptyque candles by the washbasin are Baies (two of them), Roses and another one which I can’t identify because the front label is not visible. From the colour of the wax I think it could be Opopanax.

American Horror Story S07E06 (Mid-Western Assassin)

americanhorrorstorys07e06_voluspa_bornunicornWhen Ally takes Meadow (Leslie Grossman) to the Butchery on Main restaurant, the latter finally discloses the whole cult plot. Before starting the conversation, she takes a candle in a decorative tin from a table display and puts it in her bag.
voluspapersimmonandcopal_bornunicornIt’s the Persimmon & Copal candle from the Japonica collection by Voluspa.
