The Party (1968)

Actor Hrundi V. Bakshi causes chaos wherever he goes: he’s a well-intentioned but extremely clumsy man. When he gets inadvertently invited at a dinner party by the studio head Fred R. Clutterbuck, the host and his guests have no idea what’s in store for them.

Bakshi visits two bathrooms in the General’s lavish mansion: the first one has marble counters and a floral wallpaper. On the counter there are several perfume bottles, most of them by Christian Dior.

First from the left, a big bottle of Eau Sauvage, a citrus aromatic fragrance created by Edmond Roudnitska and launched in 1966.

Then there’s Eau de Cologne Fraîche, another citrus scent by Roudnitska, launched in 1955.

Then there’s an oblong splash bottle with the pretty bow-topped front label, first introduced in 1953. Impossible to tell what fragrance it contained: this bottle was used to house classics such as Miss Dior and Diorissimo.

In the Clutterbucks’ bedroom there’s another Eau Sauvage bottle, so we can assume it’s a fragrance used by the General.

During an interview Tina Turner (Angela Bassett) did in 1964, we can get a glimpse of her dressing table, on which I spotted a bottle of Christian Dior Eau FraîcheThis citrus fragrance was created by Edmond Roudnitska and launched in 1953.

This is the interview that the real Tina Turner did in 1964. Like in the film, Ike Turner was sitting there, but didn’t say a word.
