The Pink Panther (1963)

Charming Sir Charles Litton (David Niven) is spending the winter months at a posh hotel in Cortina. When such an elegant character opens his bathroom cabinet, something good is about to happen – a perfect shot of men’s colognes!

First from the left, Yardley Eau de Cologne for Men.

A massive bottle of Victor Acqua di Selva takes centre stage.

The third and last one is another vintage Italian product – Napoleon Sir Robert toilet water by Morris.

On the top shelf there are a Chanel box and an eau de cologne bottle. The front label is impossible to read, but maybe it’s Pour Monsieur.

When it comes to the box, it’s likely to contain No. 5 or another women’s fragrance, because the box of Pour Monsieur was white with black lettering (but no black edges) or grey with white lettering.

Une belle fille comme moi (1972)

The bathroom where Camille (Bernadette Lafont) is sitting to apply nail polish on her toenails is full of interesting perfumes.

The first bottle on a shelf above the washbasin is Robert Piguet Cravache eau de toilette, a citrus fragrance launched in 1963.

Guerlain Habit Rouge eau de cologne in the red bottle sits on the same shelf. This version of the amber woody fragrance by Jean-Paul Guerlain was launched in 1965.

Habit Rouge eau de cologne in the clear glass bottle can be seen on another shelf behind Camille.

Other three perfume bottles can be seen in this scene.

On the washbasin shelf there’s Helena Rubinstein Men’s Club 52 eau de cologne.

A Chanel bottle on the second shelf. It’s impossible to read the front label, but it could be the Eau de Cologne Pour Monsieur.

Same location for Jean Patou Lacoste Eau de Sport in the metal canister. This fragrance, launched in 1967, was created by Jean Kerleo.

Thanks to lepetitcivet for the Patou id.
