Toiletries and medicine bottles cover the two dressing tables seen in the film. On both occasions three products stand out, all of them by Old Spice.
The two white bottles are an Old Spice travel set: the bottle with white cap contains after-shave talcum, while the one with red cap contains after-shave lotion.
The green bottle with white cap is from the Lime collection, introduced in 1966. From an 1973 catalogue we can see that this introductory-size bottle could contain the after-shave lotion or the cologne.
There are several interesting toiletries in C.C. Baxter’s bathroom, starting from those seen on the lower shelf.
The spray can on the left is Gillette Foamy shaving cream.
The bottle on the right is very peculiar: the stopper is shaped after a Medieval crest. Even if the front label cannot be read (so it’s not possible to say exactly what product it is), it’s a cologne or an after-shave lotion by Kings Men, a brand whose imagery was a reference to Medieval English and Scottish traditions.
In another scene, a “bottle” reading “Tooth Paste” can be seen on the washbasin. It’s Colgate dental cream with Gardol, available in tube or in a pump bottle which reminds me of shaving cream.
Davis has a very busy working life and a very strict daily routine which includes beauty treatments. So it’s not surprising to see many toiletries in his bathroom. D. R. Harris Arlingtonmahogany shaving bowl is one of them.
On the washbasin counter there are more beauty items:
Howard 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.
By the washbasin there are two Old Spice Classic deodorant sticks, Pinaud Clubman after-shave lotion and Gillette Foamy shaving foam.
This 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.
