Tre piani (2021)

Dora (Margherita Buy) helps Monica (Alba Rohrwacher) give a bath to her newborn baby. There are several interesting products in the room.

First, the unexpected presence of Hermès Concentré d’Orange Verte on the wall shelf. This citrus unisex fragrance was created by Jean Guichard and launched in 2004.

The white bottle on the bath-tub shelf is an Italian baby-care product, BabyGella body wash.

The red bottle with white stopper on the glass wall shelf is Clarins Eau Dynamisante, created by Jacques Courtin-Clarins and launched in 1987.

The green bottle is the iconic Roberts Borotalco talcum powder.

The bottle with white round stopper is Chicco Acqua di Colonia, an eau de cologne for children.

Été 85 (2020)

David (Benjamin Voisin) and Alex (Félix Lefebvre) are recovering after being attacked by bullies at a local fun fair. They’re cleaning themselves up in David’s bathroom.

The first bottle I can see on the left side of the bathroom shelf is Boucheron Pour Homme eau de toilette. I don’t think David wears it, so it’s likely to be something his late father used to wear.

There’s another perfume bottle, and this definitely belongs to David’s mother, the outgoing Mrs. Gorman. It’s Fabergé Babe, a floral fragrance launched in 1977 and famously advertised by Margaux Hemingway.

In the screencap above there’s also a tube of Colgate toothpaste.

On the shelf there’s also a bottle of Pétrole Hahn Vert hair lotion and a box of Nivea Creme.
