Isabelle Huppert’s Dressing Room

If you, like me, are a fan of Isabelle Huppert, you’ll be delighted to see this backstage picture, taken on April 15th, 2019 at the Linda Gross Theater in New York. For roughly two months the French actress performed as the Mother in the namesake play by Florian Zeller, under the direction of Trip Cullman.

From left to right there are:

As a die-hard fan of Diptyque, I must admit I jumped on my chair when I saw an eau de toilette bottle on Isabelle’s table. I’m not 100% sure of my id because the front label is partially hidden, but my guess is that she uses Do Son, a tuberose fragrance created in Fabrice Pellegrin and launched in 2005.

sergelutens_lorpheline_bornunicornNext to the Diptyque bottle there’s a Serge Lutens fragrance. In this case, it’s impossible to tell what it is.

There are also two items that not beauty-related but are very nice: a small jar of Tiger Balm (one of my staples) and a tin box containing Gommose Leone, delicious Italian liquorice gummy candy.

Thanks to Scentimentalist for the foundation id.

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.

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.
