Maria’s Lovers (1984)

There are two interesting products on the mantelpiece in the room where the protagonist (Nastassja Kinski) is getting ready.

The first is a perfume box by Dana. The name of the perfume is impossible to read: I believe it’s Tabu, the legendary “parfum de puta” created by Jean Carles and launched in 1932. The film is set in 1946, though, so the box could contain other Dana perfumes – the chypre fruity 20 Carats (1933), the amber Emir (launched in 1935) and the floral Chantilly (1941).

The other product is a round cardboard box of Coty Airspun loose face powder.

Soon after Iris (Kara Hayward) meets the newcomer Maggie (Liana Liberato), they become friends. Maggie decides to give Iris a makeover, so they go shopping for cosmetics. The beauty counter at the department store they go to displays make-up and skincare products.

The two jars with pink lids contain Woodbury skin cream.

There are three boxes of Coty Airspun loose face powder: the classic version has the yellow box, while the peach box contains a perfumed version (the scent in this case is L’Aimant).

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel S03E01 (Strike Up the Band)

The new season opens with new adventures and new career goals for Midge (Rachel Brosnahan): she’s performing at a military gig to entertain the troops. Before the performance, we see her backstage with Susie (Alex Borstein), adding the final touches to her red, white and blue outfit.

On her dressing table there’s a can of the Australian hairspray Gossamer.

On another dressing table there’s the round cardboard box of Coty Airspun loose powder.
