There’s a bottle of Brooks Brothers Brooks 44 cologne on the bathroom countertop in David Bowie’s hotel room.
This picture was taken at L’Hotel by Andrew Kent in May 1976: the British artist was putting his make-up on before performing in Paris.

David Bowie in his Aladdin Sane persona is Cherie’s idol. Lots of pictures of the British artist can be seen on the walls of her bedroom; among them, the famous picture where he’s sitting at his dressing table and applying his scene make-up. You may remember a Dior perfume in a houndstooth bottle appears in that picture.
My first thought went to the Diorissimo cologne, but the front label is not visible, so it’s impossible to say what perfume he wore. Plus, many Dior perfumes were marketed in the houndstooth bottle (some examples here).
