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.

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.

Troop Zero (2019)

Before leaving the office to go home, Rayleen retouches her make-up in the Flints’ bathroom, and Christmas keeps her company.
