Marriage Story (2019)

marriagestory_bornunicorn (1)When Nicole (Scarlett Johansson) first meets her soon-to-be lawyer Nora (Laura Dern), we can see a Diptyque candle on the metal table by the white leather sofa. Too far from us, though, so it’s still hard to tell what candle it is.

Trent Reznor’s Love for Scented Candles

In 1994 the founder and frontman of Nine Inch Nails expressed his love for scented candles, which – according to him – were infinitely better than drugs.

diptyquecandles_bornunicorn.jpgFast forward to 2014: Reznor was portrayed working in Atticus Ross’ studio. Guess what was sitting next to him… A Diptyque candle! Unfortunately, there’s no way to say what scent it was, but this is the evidence we needed (in case we needed it) that his passion for scented candles is definitely here to stay!

Thanks to the lovely girls of Diptyque Detectives for first posting about this.

sceamqueens_s01e05_bornunicorn (4)Chanel #5 (Abigail Breslin) wants to convince Jennifer to vote Zayday as new president of the KKT Sorority House, so as to bring Chanel Oberlin down. She reveals one of Chanel’s luxurious habits (burning Diptyque candles once and then throwing them away), promises all those candles to Jennifer, who obviously freaks out, ready to vote whomever she is asked to.

sceamqueens_s01e05_bornunicorn (6)In Chanel’s closet there’s a number of candles, burnt once and then put aside. They’re not real Diptyque candles, but prop masters did a good job in reproducing the main features of the famous French candles – oval label, glass vase and names. None of the names (Iris, Lilac, Lily, 23) is the real name of a Diptyque candle, but they are reminiscent of them. 23 instead of 34? Nice try! Someone in the prop department has done his/her research.
