Seberg (2019)

seberg_bornunicornJean Seberg (Kristen Stewart) is getting ready for a photoshoot in her beautiful Hollywood mansion. There are some beauty items on her vanity, two of which are by Avon.

avonimari_bornunicornThe first is the dark red jar, which contains body lotion (in the film, the make-up artist puts it on Jean’s hands). As I’ve already pointed out, I think it’s the body lotion of Imari, which had the packaging in this exact shade of red. Imari perfume and its bodycare line were originally launched in 1985, though, so this could be another example of historical inaccuracy.

The Deuce S03E05 (You Only Get One)

yslopiumoriginal_bornunicornYves Saint Laurent Opium (oval box included) takes central stage. In 1985 (year in which this season is set) this perfume was basically everywhere, and it was impossible to escape. This creation by Jean Amic, Jean-Louis Sieuzac and Raymond Chaillan, launched in 1977, took the world of perfumery by storm: the original formula, opulent and spicy, was unlike any other perfume on the market.
