Diane (Anne Dorval) wears a classic men’s perfume by Christian Dior – Eau Sauvage. She hasn’t bought it (most of the time she’s broke), but she’s using the leftovers of a bottle her uncle gave her. If she could buy perfume, she would probably wear something overtly sexy and feminine, but the Dior perfume strangely suits her. Her son Steve (Antoine-Olivier Pilon) loves it: “You smell like fucking heaven,” he comments.
Eau Sauvage, famous for its legendary fresh citrusy notes on a woody base, was created by Edmond Roudnitska and introduced in 1966.
Charlotte (Chloë Sevigny) has a very busy dressing table. There are several make-up items and perfume bottles, among which Christian Dior Eau Savage and Cartier Panthère de Cartier.
Eau Savage is a classic perfume by Christian Dior, first launched in 1966 and created by Edmond Roudnitska; it’s still a best seller, despite the reformulation process it’s gone through. It’s an enjoyable perfume with a fantastic citrusy opening, aromatic middle notes and woody notes in the base. The Cartier perfume, on the other hand, is a symbol of the decade it was launched in – the 1980s. I’ve always loved the showy luxury of its perfume bottle, with the two panthers made of frosted glass.
