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.
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.
While Rue is running from her mother, she gets to Lexi’s house. She goes into one bathroom, where she steals a pair of gold earrings. It’s unclear whom the room belongs to but I think it’s Suze’s because three Avon bottles can be seen in it. It’s unlikely for two teenagers like Cassie and Lexi to keep perfumes from the 1970s in their bathroom, so this must be their mother’s.
The first Avon bottle has the shape of a bird perched on a metal base: it’s the Song Bird bottle, used to house (among others) the cologne Unforgettable, launched in 1965.
Just behind the photo frame there’s a black bottle with gold lettering: it’s from the Avon Star Signs collection. This is the Leo bottle, which we can assume is Suze’s zodiac sign. As usual, even this bottle was used to house several fragrances, so it’s impossible to tell what’s in it.
The third Avon fragrance is housed in a beautiful white fluted bottle; it’s Avon Sonnet, a floral powdery scent launched in 1938.
