Hable con ella (2002)

We’ve already seen what’s in Alicia’s hospital cabinet, but there’s more. When Benigno (Javier Cámara) opens the cabinet in another scene, there are different products.

The jar and the bottle in the foreground are by Shiseido: the jar contains the body cream from the Relaxing Fragrance line, while the bottle is Advanced Essential Energy lumizing body lotion.

In the background there are the Relaxing Fragrance body lotion and the Energizing Fragrance eau aromatique, already seen in a previous scene.

When Benigno takes the Shiseido luminizing body lotion, we can see there’s also a bottle of Chanel n°5 body lotion.

Benigno Martín (Javier Cámara) is a personal nurse and caregiver: he looks after Alicia Roncero, a beautiful dancer he has been obsessed with even before she was in a coma. When he opens a cabinet in the girl’s hospital room to take a Pina Bausch’s autographed picture, we can see the products he uses on her.

Three of them are by Shiseido. The red drop-shaped bottle is Energizing Fragrance, a floral eau aromatique created by Claudette Belnavis and launched in 1999.

The tall bottles are from the Relaxing Fragrance line: the one on the left (with the shorter stopper) is the body lotion, while the one in the foreground is the fragrance. Hugely successful in the late 1990s (I used it myself for a while), it’s a floral green scent released in 1997.

There are some Chanel lipglosses on the left side of the cabinet, too.

And then a limited-edition bottle of Jean Paul Gaultier Classique, the powdery white floral masterpiece by Jacques Cavallier, first launched in 1993.
