Dior Eau Sauvage can be seen on Amanda’s dressing table.
I haven’t watched Call Me by Your Name by Luca Guadagnino yet, but I’ve kept the best picture from the set for last. The author is – again – Giulio Ghirardi, who gave us the perfect shot of a dressing table, covered with some fabric from the Middle East.
Among the several perfume bottles, I’ve spotted Christian Dior Eau Sauvage, a 1966 creation by Edmond Roudnitska.
Next to it, there’s Acqua di Parma Colonia, the first fragrance of the Italian brand, created in 1916.
The blue tin unmistakably contains Nivea Creme, a product created in Germany but incredibly popular in Italy.
Another quintessentially Italian product is Roberts Acqua distillata alle rose, a toner first created in 1867.
Last but not least, there’s a bottle of Vanderbilt by Gloria Vanderbilt, a huge commercial success created by Sophia Grojsman in 1982. It’s impossible not to have a memory of it, if you were born in the 1970s/1980s: this white floral fragrance was everywhere!
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.
Dior Eau Sauvage, Fahrenheit and Homme Sport perfumes can be seen in Big and Carrie’s bathroom. There are also Dior Homme Dermo System after-shave lotion and Kiehl’s Blue Eagle brushless shave cream.
Thanks to Enrique for the shave cream id, to Kevin for the after-shave lotion id and to Fazal for the Dior Homme Sport id.
