Written on the Wind (1956)

The dresser in the picture above is packed with perfume bottles. Among them, I’ve able to identify the following (from left to right):

fabergetigress_bornunicornFabergé Tigress, launched in 1938. It’s the bottle with the fake fur stopper. Another bottle can be seen on the right, with the stopper with a different fur pattern.

caronbellodgia_bornunicornCaron Bellodgia, created by Ernest Daltroff and launched in 1927. There are two bottles of this.

bourjois_maisoui_bornunicornBourjois Mais Oui, launched in 1938. There are two bottles with the signature fan-shaped stopper; one of them is in its open box.

When Pola (Marilyn Monroe), Loco (Betty Grable) and Schatze (Lauren Bacall) go to a restaurant with their dates, they all meet in the powder room to share their impressions. Two Lanvin Arpège perfume bottles can be seen on a dressing table. Pola even puts on some perfume before leaving.
