Madonna’s God Control (2019)

 In June 2019 Madonna released God Control, a music video directed by Jonas Åkerlund which is a ferocious attack against the violence that characterises American society and its strenuous defense of the Second Amendment.

In the screenshot above the singer is getting ready to spend a night out. On her mirrored vanity there are two interesting perfume bottles.

The bottle with clear stopper on the far left is Robert Piguet Fracas extrait de parfum, one of Madonna’s favourite fragrances, a white floral (tuberose and jasmine) triumph created by Germaine Cellier and launched in 1948.

Behind Fracas there’s Jean Patou Moment Suprême housed in the Vacances bottle – rounded stopper and three gadroons. This amber floral fragrance, created by Henri Almeras, was launched in 1929.

Madonna’s Material Girl (1985)

The tall ribbed bottle with gold cap, for example, is the Guerlain natural spray cologne bottle, used for different fragrances from 1964 to 1977.

When I first saw it, I thought it was the spray bottle of No. 5 eau de parfum (the dip tube is showing). Later, I had second thoughts: was this bottle on the market in the 1980s? Plus, is the dip tube really showing? The picture is not that clear.

Madonna’s Bathroom

Some personal pictures of Madonna living in New York during her relationship with singer Dan Gilroy (from 1979 to 1981) have recently surfaced. They’re supposed to be part of a documentary which will include personal letters and “bedroom talk” recordings of the singer. In the picture above, she was putting some mascara on; the yellow tube is Revlon Natural Wonder.
