Bewitched S01E05 (Help, Help, Don’t Save Me)

Samantha is packing to move to her mother’s house after arguing with her husband Darrin: she suggested slogans for an advertising campaign he was working on but he suspects she used magic to help.

There are four perfume bottles on her dressing table, three of which I have been able to identify.

The first two bottles on the left are Revlon Intimate, a chypre floral fragrance launched in 1955.

The tall balloon bottle is Lucien Lelong Tailspin cologne, a floral green creation by Jean Carles launched in 1940.

Sudden Fear (1952)

Myra Hudson (Joan Crawford), a successful playwright, finds herself in danger when her husband and a former girlfriend of his (Irene) devise a plot to kill her. But Myra fights back with a more elaborate plot.

When she breaks into Irene’s apartment, there’s a perfect perfume moment: on the girl’s dresser there are three Lucien Lelong bottles.

First from the left, the tall fluted bottle of Indiscret, a Jean Carles creation launched in 1936.

Then there’s the wonderful bottle of Opening Night, another Carles creation launched in 1935.

Last on the right, there’s a tall balloon bottle of Tailspin eau de cologne.
