On the same white tray there are some Aesop products. The tall pump bottle could be the Resurrection Aromatique hand wash, the classic conditioner or a body cleanser, while the shorter bottles could be a shampoo or a body cleanser.

Thanks to my Instagram friend Mustapha for the Jo Malone body wash id.

Annie Hall (1977)

anniehall_blacksoap_bornunicorn (1)When Annie calls Alvy in the middle of the night and asks him to kill a spider for her, he gets there in no time. There are two spiders in Annie’s bathroom (which he tries to kill) but he finds something else, too: a bar of black soap.

16_woody_allen_diane_keaton_annie_hall_classic_comedy_movieAccording to Erno Laszlo, it was their Sea Mud black soap.

White Oleander (2002)

There’s a bit of mystery around the soap. The Bee Shop produces the Queen Bee Gardener’s honey soap with calendula, which has the same shape of the soap seen in Claire’s bathroom. The hexagon shape is very common among soap makers, though.
