When Michaela (Aja Naomi King) realises her father is Solomon Vick, she goes to New York to meet him. She attends one of his conferences and aggressively asks him personal questions. Later, she intrudes into his hotel room and goes through his items.
In the bathroom there are two perfume bottles: one is John Varvatos Artisan, a creation by John Varvatos and Rodrigo Flores-Roux launched in 2009; the other is Dana Canoe, a Jean Carles creation first launched in 1936 as a fresh perfume for women and marketed as men’s cologne since the 1960s.
Michaela doesn’t resist and smells the Varvatos perfume. You may remember it made an appearance in the second season of the show, in Mike’s bedroom.
Asher Millstone (Matt McGorry) and his fellow faculty students are at Mike Delfino’s. He’s taking a look at the perfume bottles on the dresser in his bedroom; among them, there’s Navy for Men by Dana, a woody aromatic fragrance launched in 1995. The wicker-sleeve bottle on the right is John Varvatos Artisan, a citrusy-herbal perfume created by John Varvatos and Rodrigo Flores-Roux and launched in 2009. The prop master has replaced the silver stopper with a black one, probably taken from Artisan Black.
Now the black and silver flask-shaped bottle: after discussing about it on Twitter, I’m pretty sure it’s a customised version of Montblanc Legend – the stopper has been replaced and a white monogram has been added.
No doubts on the perfume Asher smells from the bottle: it’s Mankind by Kenneth Cole, created by Claude Dir and launched in 2013.
