I May Destroy You S01E12 (Ego Death)

Arabella (Michaela Coel) and her friend Terry are back to Ego Death, the London bar where the protagonist’s story starts. The scene above is set in the bar toilet; right behind Arabella there’s a table with some perfume bottles on it. Unfortunately there’s not a clear shot of it, because it would have been interesting to see what perfumes were selected and made available to the customers for a quick spraying.

Two bottles (the first and second from the left) can be identified, though. The first is Dior Fahrenheit, the creation by Jean-Louis Sieuzac and Michel Almairac that has become a unisex favourite since its launch in 1988. The second is Alien by Thierry Mugler, a white floral (jasmine!) perfume created by Laurent Bruyère and Dominique Ropion and launched in 2005.

I May Destroy You S01E12 (Ego Death)

One of the first places we are introduced to in this show is Ego Death, a London bar with a prophetical name. It’s the place where the protagonist, Arabella, and her best friend Terry (Weruche Opia) often return to in an attempt to exorcise it as a negative symbol and find closure to the traumatic event the show opens with.

In this scene, Terry is retouching her make-up by applying a MAC lipstick in a nude shade.
