A lot can be said about these two perfumes, but words can barely express the shock and awe you experienced when you smelled them. They were loud, bold, impressively persistent. The brand, founded by Fred and Gayle Hayman in 1961, reached the peak of success in the 1980s and the perfumes had a pivotal role. The women’s version was launched in 1981 and the men’s one three years later.

He’s one of the few persons who are friendly with Jonathan (Andrew McCarthy). After being hired as shop boy, Jonathan will soon start working – exclusively at night – as window dresser. His displays will become hugely successful, much to Hollywood’s delight.

In the scene above, Hollywood is working on a perfume display which includes several factice bottles of famous perfumes from the 1980s.

First, Emanuel Ungaro Diva, created by Jacques Polge in 1983
