Pose S03E07 (Series Finale)

After performing at a ball, Pray Tell (Billy Porter) sits at his dressing table and removes his make-up.

The frosted glass bottle with gold stopper is a fragrance by Officina Profumo S. Maria Novella. Too bad we can’t say what scent it is.

There’s also a Hydrabase lipstick by Chanel.

Sliding Doors (1997)

There’s a Christian Dior houndstooth splash bottle on Helen’s vanity, but unfortunately the front label is never clearly visible. It looks white with a touch of pink, but it could be just a lighting trick. In any case, this bottle was used to contain eaux de toilette and eaux de cologne, so many possibilities open up. I think we should follow one lead, though: what vintage Dior perfume could appeal to an elegant working girl like Helen? We don’t know a lot about her background, so this bottle could be something she received from her mother or grandmother, or she could have bought it for herself. I personally think she would wear a classic, so either Diorissimo or Miss Dior.

There’s another classic product on the vanity – a Chanel lipstick.

And what about the blue glass bottles (four of them!)? They remind me of Neal Yard’s products (the film is set in London, so it would be a logical choice), but I found no evidence the brand used these bottles in the 1990s.

Isabelle Huppert’s Dressing Room

If you, like me, are a fan of Isabelle Huppert, you’ll be delighted to see this backstage picture, taken on April 15th, 2019 at the Linda Gross Theater in New York. For roughly two months the French actress performed as the Mother in the namesake play by Florian Zeller, under the direction of Trip Cullman.

As a die-hard fan of Diptyque, I must admit I jumped on my chair when I saw an eau de toilette bottle on Isabelle’s table. I’m not 100% sure of my id because the front label is partially hidden, but my guess is that she uses Do Son, a tuberose fragrance created in Fabrice Pellegrin and launched in 2005.

sergelutens_lorpheline_bornunicornNext to the Diptyque bottle there’s a Serge Lutens fragrance. In this case, it’s impossible to tell what it is.

There are also two items that not beauty-related but are very nice: a small jar of Tiger Balm (one of my staples) and a tin box containing Gommose Leone, delicious Italian liquorice gummy candy.

Thanks to Scentimentalist for the foundation id.

At the Lancôme counter, a customer is trying one of the brand’s most famous fragrances, Trésor. Created by Sophia Grojsman and launched in 1990, it’s a warm floral-oriental perfume. Several bottles of body lotion and a jar of body cream are on display.

Amy Winehouse’s Make-Up Case

mavalanailpolishdisplay_bornunicornI love this picture, where Amy was shopping for nail polishes at a drugstore. She selected a couple of red shades from the Mavala display. The tiny bottles and the wide colour selection make the Swiss brand one of my favourites.

chanelhotpinklipstick_bornunicorn.jpgThe connection between Amy and Chanel became clear when Karl Lagerfeld sent his models sporting thick eyeliner and beehives on the runway of the Métiers d’Art pre-fall 2008 collection. Amy had her own unique style but she liked Chanel bags and make-up. In the picture above, she was putting on some Chanel lipstick in a bright pink shade.
