There’s a quintessentially Italian beauty product on the vanity in Giulia’s bedroom: it’s Acqua distillata alle rose by Roberts, a classic rose water that’s available everywhere in Italy.
But there’s another item that has captured my attention: a Guerlain flacon montre.
The teal disk tells us it’s Mitsouko. Not your ordinary summer scent, but it’s not surprising: Giulia (Franca Valeri) is a chic/snobbish character, so summer can’t stop her from wearing impeccable outfits and French perfumes. I like the touch given by the prop master (a yellow pump) to customize the bottle.
Thanks to my friend Rocco for the ids.
When Dorothy and Lorelei get to Paris, they immediately go out shopping. One of the shops they hit is Guerlain. The screencap above shows the most famous fragrances of the French brand.
There are three flacons montres of Shalimar eau de cologne and two of Mitsouko eau de cologne.
There are five bouchon coeur bottles and two parquet boxes.
There are also two chauve souris bottles of Shalimar.
Last but not least, two flacons rayonnants of Vol de Nuit and three zebra-printed boxes.
There are several bottles of Guerlain colognes at the department store where Lili (Eddie Redmayne) works. The movie is set in the 1920s, so the choice of flacons montre with a glass stopper is not historically accurate: these were first launched in 1937. The teal disk on the bottle on the right is reminiscent of Mitsouko.
