The Apartment (1960)

There are several interesting toiletries in C.C. Baxter’s bathroom, starting from those seen on the lower shelf.

The spray can on the left is Gillette Foamy shaving cream.

The bottle on the right is very peculiar: the stopper is shaped after a Medieval crest. Even if the front label cannot be read (so it’s not possible to say exactly what product it is), it’s a cologne or an after-shave lotion by Kings Men, a brand whose imagery was a reference to Medieval English and Scottish traditions.

In another scene, a “bottle” reading “Tooth Paste” can be seen on the washbasin. It’s Colgate dental cream with Gardol, available in tube or in a pump bottle which reminds me of shaving cream.
