Olivia (Jennifer Aniston) is always tight on money: she used to work as a school teacher but now she’s a maid and doesn’t earn much. When she finishes a sample tube of moisturiser, she goes through her bathroom drawer to see if there’s anything else she can use.

On the bathroom counter we can see a bottle of Bulgari Eau Parfumée au thé vert Extreme, a stronger version of the classic citrus green fragrance created by Jean-Claude Ellena and launched in 1992.

In the drawer there’s a Givenchy compact, probably containing pressed powder.

There are also two Lancôme products: one is a sample jar of Résolution D-Contraxol, the anti-age treatment Olivia is obsessed with; the other is a carded sample of Miracle, a fresh spicy fragrance created by Alberto Morillas and Harry Fremont and launched in 2000.
