There’s a factice bottle of Calvin Klein Obsession on a chest of drawers in Angel’s bedroom. This is a historically accurate choice: the best-selling perfume by Calvin Klein, created by Jean Guichard and launched in 1985, was still incredibly popular in the 1990s.
This documentary presents the aenigmatic and fascinating life of the astrologer Walter Mercado, who was interviewed in his home in Puerto Rico. There’s a domestic shot that piqued my interest, because many beauty products can be seen.
The black and white box is Frulatte Hyalunol anti-aging cream.
There’s also a No.7 box from the Restore and Renew line (old packaging).
The tall plastic bottle is Shea Moisture coconut and hibiscus brightening body lotion.
The polka dot box with gold details contains Carolina Herrera perfume, a white floral creation by Carlos Benaim, Clement Gavarry and Rosendo Mateu, launched in 1988.
The white and grey box is SkinSolve Tighter Clearer Younger anti-aging charcoal overnight cream.
And then there’s a box of Calvin Klein Obsession, the warm spicy fragrance created by Jean Guichard and launched in 1985. I personally thought Walter would have worn something more classic (Shalimar, maybe?), but Obsession is mysterious yet comforting, a description that could well be applied to Walter himself.
Thanks to Scentimentalist for the body lotion and Carolina Herrera ids.
There’s a bottle of Calvin Klein Obsession on the dressing table in Clay’s mother’s bedroom. This oriental spicy fragrance was created by Jean Guichard and launched in 1985.
The white box under the glass counter is a product from the Chanel No. 5 body line: I couldn’t find any picture of it, but I guess it contained a jar, so it could be an after-bath powder, a body cream or even a set of soaps.
