Several bottles of Issey Miyake L’Eau d’Isseyeau de parfum are displayed in the luxury department store where most of the film is set.
The eau de parfum version was launched in 2006, while the original eau de toilette was launched in 1992. A Jacques Cavallier creation, it’s one of the first ozonic/aquatic perfumes which set the new trend of “clean” perfumery in the 1990s.
The first men’s perfume by Yves Saint Laurent was Pour Homme, an aromatic scent launched in 1971. Its advertising campaign – the designer posing naked in front of the camera of Jean Loup Sieff – challenged the concept of male nudity in advertising and caused a scandal.
The same concept was used by Tom Ford in 2002: the advertising campaign of YSL M7 featured the martial arts champion Samuel de Cubber naked.
Two versions of Yves Saint Laurent Y can be seen all through the film: in the first picture there is the bottle with the tall cap, made of metal and a horn-like material; in the second there’s the bottle with glass cap. The perfume, originally launched in 1964, was created by Jean Amic.
