The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel S04E05 (How to Chew Quietly and Influence People)

Before leaving Shy Baldwin’s wedding party, Susie (Alex Borstein) wants to get a gift bag but Miriam (Rachel Brosnahan) doesn’t agree because she thinks gift bags are “tacky”. She changes her mind when she realises the bags contain Chanel No. 5.

Susie ends up leaving with many gift bags!

What I find strange is that the only perfume bottle seen on the gift bag table is not Chanel No. 5 but Coco (see the black paper strip around the bottle neck). I would be curious to know why the prop masters didn’t use the perfume mentioned in the conversation but opted for a fragrance launched in 1984, decades after the time in which the tv show is set.

Mannequin (1987)

He’s one of the few persons who are friendly with Jonathan (Andrew McCarthy). After being hired as shop boy, Jonathan will soon start working – exclusively at night – as window dresser. His displays will become hugely successful, much to Hollywood’s delight.

In the scene above, Hollywood is working on a perfume display which includes several factice bottles of famous perfumes from the 1980s.

First, Emanuel Ungaro Diva, created by Jacques Polge in 1983
