Brodeuses (2004)

Mme. Mélikian owns interesting beauty products.

First, a lovely flacon rayonnant of Guerlain Vol de Nuit, created by Jacques Guerlain and launched in 1933.

Second, a gold tube of Christian Dior Diorific lipstick. This packaging has been sadly discontinued.

She also owns two flacons abeilles of Guerlain Eau de Cologne Impériale, famously created by Pierre-François-Pascal Guerlain in 1853 to treat the migraines of Empress Eugenie, the wife of Napoleon III.

L’etrangleur (1970)

There are many Guerlain perfumes on the vanity table of one of Émile’s victims. From left to right:

Guerlain Chypre 53 cologne_bornunicornThe sage green disk on a flacon montre indicates its content: Chypre 53 eau de cologne. The perfume was first released in 1909, but in 1948 it was re-issued as a cologne.
