Goodfellas (1990)

There’s the iconic dove-topped bottle of Nina Ricci L’air du temps on Karen’s dresser. This classic floral/spicy fragrance, created by Francis Fabron, was launched in 1948.

Next to it there’s another iconic bottle – the flacon chauve souris of Guerlain Shalimar, one of the most famous creations by Jacques Guerlain, launched in 1925.

On the right side of the dresser there’s a white bottle: the stopper has a gold band, which indicates it’s a Chanel body lotion, possibly No. 5 or No. 19.

Thanks to Ladiesofthepast for submitting this post and to reveur_etc for the Guerlain and Chanel ids.

The Women (1939)

When Sylvia (Rosalind Russell) and Edith (Phyllis Povah) decide to act on the infidelity rumours about their friend Mary’s husband, they pay a visit to the cosmetic department at Black’s Fifth Avenue: there, they intend to meet the alleged mistress, Crystal Allen (Joan Crawford).

When they stop at a perfume counter, some interesting bottles can be seen.

On the mirrored table on the right there’s a factice flacon chauve souris of Guerlain Shalimar, the Jacques Guerlain masterpiece launched in 1925.

In the glass cabinet behind the shop assistant there’s a Guerlain flacon montre containing an eau de cologne.

Lupin S02E03 (Chapitre 8)

Juliette (Léa Bonneau) is sitting at her dressing table and is putting lipstick on.

The lipstick she’s using is Chanel Rouge Coco Shine.

When her father Hubert (Hervé Pierre) joins her to start a conversation, we can see there are some objects on the table.

First, a bottle of Guerlain Shalimar, the 1925 classic by Jacques Guerlain.

There are also a MAC jar (it could be Paint Pot cream eyeshadow or Fluidline gel eyeliner) and a Dior lip colour, possibly Dior Addict Lip Tattoo or Lip Maximizer.

Thank you to Alessandra for the screencaps and the Shalimar id.

Madame Claude (2021)

When Madame Claude (Karol Rocher) first meets Virginie (Liah O’Prey), she takes her into the office bathroom to teach her the general rules of personal hygiene.

On the washbasin there’s a Guerlain refillable atomiser of Shalimar.

Later, Madame is taking a bath in her own apartment. On a glass shelf above the washbasin there’s another atomiser of Shalimar, which means the classic fragrance by Guerlain is her signature scent.

Thanks to cedriceccentric for the id.

Arabesque (1966)

arabesque_bornunicorn (3)There are two Guerlain perfumes in the bedroom Yasmin has in Beshraavi’s mansion.

SHALIMAR08010 BASEAOne is the flacon chauve souris of Shalimar.

The other is a flacon bouchon coeur, but it’s hard to tell what perfume it contains, since the front sticker is not clearly visible.

I’m still thinking about the white ribbed bottle standing between the Guerlain perfumes. It looks familiar but all my researches have led nowhere so far. How frustrating!

Brigitte Bardot’s Dressing Table (1973)

This picture, taken in 1973, shows Bardot sitting at her dressing table. Most of the bottles on it are decorative, but there are some real flacons too.

guerlainvintagecolognenaturalspray_bornunicornOn the right there are two Guerlain bottles. The white container decorated with a blue floral pattern is the refillable atomiser of Shalimar, while the fluted one is the spray version of Shalimar eau de cologne. Behind them, the fan-like cap of the classic flacon chauve souris is visible, but it seems attached to a different bottle.

jeancharles-brosseau_ombrerose_bornunicornWhen Jonathan (Andrew McCarthy) first spots his creation, the mannequin Emmy, in the window of the department store Prince and Co., she’s surrounded by factice bottles of perfumes. Among them, there are Guerlain Shalimar, Vanderbilt by Gloria Vanderbilt and Jean-Charles Brosseau Ombre Rose.

The French Line (1953)

Mame Carson (Jane Russell) is a millionairess with an oil empire and an unlucky love life. In the first part of the film she’s still engaged, though, and in the first musical act she’s getting ready to meet his fiancé. She likes wearing working clothes but her boudoir shows her love for furry rugs, velvet and satin furniture and perfumes! There’s an impressive display of bottles on her vanity.

The first bottle which appears in this scene is in the bathroom, where Mame’s maid, Clare (Theresa Harris) is spraying some fragrance.

On a marble counter behind Clare there’s a Guerlain flacon montre of Shalimar (see the orange red disk).

Mame takes a bubble bath, then gets changed behind the vanity mirror.

Starting from left bottom I’ve spotted a flacon quadrilobe by Guerlain, Lucien Lelong Sirocco and Bourjois Mais Oui.

On the second shelf there are Guerlain Shalimar in the flacon chauve souris and another Guerlain fragrance in the flacon bouchon coeur.

On the top shelf there are two unknown bottles, while the one in the middle is Guerlain Sous le Vent in the beautiful flacon tonnelet.

Last, there’s the unique pyramid-shape bottle of Lucien Lelong Opening Night on a shelf on the left.
