Written on the Wind (1956)

The dresser in the picture above is packed with perfume bottles. Among them, I’ve able to identify the following (from left to right):

fabergetigress_bornunicornFabergé Tigress, launched in 1938. It’s the bottle with the fake fur stopper. Another bottle can be seen on the right, with the stopper with a different fur pattern.

caronbellodgia_bornunicornCaron Bellodgia, created by Ernest Daltroff and launched in 1927. There are two bottles of this.

bourjois_maisoui_bornunicornBourjois Mais Oui, launched in 1938. There are two bottles with the signature fan-shaped stopper; one of them is in its open box.

Will Success Spoil Rock Hunter? (1957)

Will_Success_Spoil_Rock_Hunter-_bornunicornThere are several bottles by the bath-tub in Rita Marlowe’s bathroom. Among them, five Lanvin products.

dana_20caratscologne_bornunicornThe bottle between the two Lanvin boules is the eau de cologne of Dana 20 Carats, launched in 1933.
