American Horror Story S10E09 (Blue Moon)

There’s a Guerlain flacon montre in Marilyn Monroe’s bedroom.

This is a very unusual choice because there’s no evidence that Marily wore Guerlain colognes. The reason behind this prop is easy to explain: Ryan Murphy is clearly a fan of this bottle and of the French brand; both have often been shown or quoted in his shows.

It’s not a historically accurate choice, though: the gold screw-cap stopper was first introduced in 1972, 10 years after the death of the American actress. In the 1960s flacons montre were available with the ground glass stopper.

[1] Marilyn’s name will forever be connected to Chanel No. 5, but she was a fan of the now-discontinued Rose Geranium eau de toilette by Floris.
