Sarah Jessica Parker’s Bathroom (2018)

sjpbathroom_bornunicornYesterday Sarah Jessica Parker posted this picture on her Instagram account. Needless to say, I am in awe of all these perfume bottles sitting in her bathroom. From left to right I can see:

lelabo_patchouli24_bornunicorn

Le Labo Patchouli 24, a patchouli perfume with vanilla base note, created by Annick Menardo in 2006.

dana_lovesbabysoft_bornunicornFirst launched in 1971, this powdery musky creation by Ron Winnegrad is still on the market. When the actress launched her first fragrance, Lovely, in 2005, she explained one of her sources of inspiration was Love’s Baby Soft, which she wore as a teenager.

guerlainvetiver_bornunicornLast but not least, Guerlain Vetiver, originally created by Jean-Paul Guerlain and launched in 1959. It’s not clear whether this is an old version (with the beautiful opaque glass bottle by Robert Granai) or the Eau Glacée or Sport versions, respectively launched in 2004 and 2006.

On the table there are other two bottles I’m quite on the fence with. One, on the left, is Narciso Rodriguez For Her, but the bottle is different from the black one on the market (see the rounded edges). The other is the small bottle on the front: it looks like a Hermès perfume but the cap is not rounded, so I’m not sure.

santamarianovellacologne_bornunicornOn the bottom shelf I can see Youth Dew by Estee Lauder and a perfume by Santa Maria Novella.

The two tulle Mickey Mouse ears seen in the picture are by L’Wren Scott (right) and by Gigi Burris (left). She wore the first at the unveiling of Barney’s Electric Holiday collection in 2012 and the second at the recent opening of Mickey: The True Original Exhibition in New York.

Thanks to Lee in the comments for the Estee Lauder id.

There’s a bottle of Estee Lauder Youth Dew perfume on the dresser in Johnny Vohden’s bedroom. The warm spicy fragrance, created in 1953 by Josephine Catapano, was the first released by the American cosmetic brand.

The Youth Dew iconic ribbed bottle with the golden ribbon can be seen when Johnny takes his Vietnam War tags from his wife’s jewellery box.
