Kate Moss’ Bathroom (2017)

katemossbathroom

I’ve always loved bathrooms and I’ve seen many beautiful ones in my life, but very few of them can equal the poetic atmosphere in Kate Moss’ bathroom in her London house. The bespoke wallpaper with anemone pattern by de Gournay is its strongest point, but charming additions are the vintage crystal chandelier from James Worrall, a Drummonds claw-foot tub and framed black-and-white photographs.

On the marble washbasin there are several products – two bath oils, one perfume and a skincare item.

The bottles with colourful ribbons are Penhaligon’s bath oils. The one on the left is Victorian Posy, a chypre floral fragrance launched in 1979 and now sadly discontinued; the one on the right is Vanities, another discontinued fragrance.

The white jar is Cosme Decorté AQ Meliority repair cleansing cream.

The bottle with ball-shaped stopper is Balenciaga L’Essence eau de parfum, a green floral fragrance created by Olivier Polge and launched in 2011.

There are lots of bottles in the mirrored cabinets above the washbasin.

On the top shelf on the left there’s a factice bottle of Prada Infusion d’Iris eau de toilette, created by Daniela Andrier and launched in 2010.

On the middle shelf on the left there’s Fracas by Robert Piguet, created by Germaine Cellier and launched in 1948.

Lalique Songe is shown in a 2005 limited-edition bottle.

The bottle with peach pink ribbon is Penhaligon’s Ellenisia, another discontinued floral fragrance launched in 2005.

On the bottom shelf in the central section there’s Christian Dior Dune, an amber woody fragrance created by Jean-Louis Sieuzac, Nejla Barbir and Dominique Ropion and launched in 1991.

On the same shelf there are a flacon bouchon coeur by Guerlain and two bottles of Chanel No. 5 eau de parfum.

On the middle shelf on the right there are some Etro bottles, possibly Heliotrope eau de cologne (old packaging), and two fragrances by Byredo.

Toby Schmitz’s Perfume Choice (2017)

I love when actors share pictures of the perfumes they wear. Their choices are often unusual, especially when they select a perfume for a specific role they’re acting in. It’s the case of Toby Schmitz, who performed as Nikolai Triletsky in The Present, an adaptation of the play Platonov by Anton Čechov. Learning that he wore Oud Immortel by Byredo for this role came as a surprise: the 2010 perfume has *prominent* notes of oud, pure wood, something appropriate for the pirate Jack Rackham, role Schmitz played on Black Sails. The actor pointed out that he wore another Byredo perfume in that case: the smoky and leathery Baudelaire. Excellent choice!
