Lying with You (2017)

lyingwithyou_bornunicornThe latest music video by Charlotte Gainsbourg – Lying with You, from the album Rest – turns out to be an unexpected perfume lover mecca. Directed by Gainsbourg herself, it’s set in the apartment at 5 bis Rue de Verneuil (Paris) where her father, Serge Gainsbourg, lived. Soon to become a museum, it’s filled with objects that the French artist used and loved; among them, a massive amount of perfumes and toiletries.

guerlaingoutteflacon_bornunicornThe drop-shaped bottle is the flacon goutte by Guerlain. It was used for different perfumes, so it’s impossible to tell which one it contains.

Van Cleef & Arpels Pour Homme eau de toilette 100 ml spraySerge Gainsbourg’s signature perfume – Van Cleef & Arpels Pour Homme – is featured too. It was created in 1978 by Louis Monnet.

Thanks to Vincent Legrudge for the Guerlain ids.

Stranger Things S02E08 (The Mind Flayer)

strangerthings_s02e08_bornunicorn-1.pngBilly Hargrove (Dacre Montgomery) is the bad boy par excellence in this season. He hates everybody, is rude to everybody but loves himself. A lot. The glimpse we get of his dressing table reveals interesting products he uses as part of his beauty routine.

esteelauderaramis_bornunicornI haven’t been able to identify the cologne he’s putting on in this scene, but I know what the other bottle is: Aramis by Estee Lauder, a perfume created by Bernard Chant and launched in 1966. The choice is historically accurate but I feel Aramis is a bit too conservative for a rebel like Billy.
