On the Set of “Call Me by Your Name”

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.

acquadiroseroberts_bornunicornAnother quintessentially Italian product is Roberts Acqua distillata alle rose, a toner first created in 1867.

gloriavanderbiltperfume_bornunicornLast 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!

dioreausavage_bornunicornDiane (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.

On the bottom shelf there’s a C.O. Bigelow lemon body cleanser.

Thanks to Enrique for the shave cream id, to Kevin for the after-shave lotion id, to Fazal for the Dior Homme Sport id and to Lee for the C.O. Bigelow body wash id.
