La femme d’à côté (1981)

Philippe (Henri Garcin) and Mathilde (Fanny Ardant) are a happy couple until they move next to a former lover of hers. By the end of the movie their relationship is still a thing, but jealousy and regrets don’t make it easy.

There are several interesting products in their bathroom. The aqua bottle with pink stopper, for example: even if I haven’t found any visual evidence, it’s a Jeanne Gatineau skincare item – a cleanser or a toner.

Not surprised to see a splash bottle of Lancôme Magie Noire: this fragrance, created by Gerard Goupy, Jean-Charles Niel and Yves Tanguy and launched in 1978, wonderfully suits Mathilde’s femme fatale character.

There’s also a Chanel bottle, which I believe contains a bath oil.

Last, there’s a square bottle by Lanvin. Even in this case, it’s impossible to read the front label. If we take the plot of the film into account, I like to think this is Rumeur, an Andre Fraysse creation launched in 1934.

Late Night Feelings (2019)

This round bottle with gold stopper usually housed perfumed talcum powder, body lotions and bath gels. I have found no evidence that a round matte white bottle was ever used, but the picture above can give us the hope it was.
