orangeisthenewblack_s01e06_bornunicorn (4)Piper (Taylor Schilling) has a conversation with Nicky (Natasha Lyonne) after meeting her mother. “Everybody has got problems,” she tells Nicky, who replies: “Sure, but some problems are worse than others.” “Yours,” she continues, “smell like Shalimar,” the perfume Piper’s mother wears. Nicky ironically comments on Piper’s complaining about her mother: she visits her in prisons, buys her pretzels and hugs her goodbye. There’s no reason to complain! Nicky’s bottom line is that Shalimar-scented problems are no problems at all.


Nicky, whose mother is a New York wealthy socialite, immediately recognizes Piper’s perfume. Who knows? Maybe her mother uses it, too. After all, the magic of the 1925 perfume created by Jacques Guerlain is undeniable.

Thanks to my Instagram friend Mustapha for pointing this out to me.

Orange is the New Black S03E05 (Fake It Till You Fake It Some More)



Orange_is_the_New_Black_S03E05_1080p__0368Galina Reznikov’s nickname is Red, not without a reason: red hair, fingernails and lipsticks are her trademarks. Despite living in a prison, she uses a luxury lipstick, which happens to be from the Noir collection by Julie Hewett. Two are the possible shade options.

juliehewett_femmenoir_bornunicornThis is Femme Noir, a classic blue-based 30s scarlet red. It was worn by Lily Rabe as Sister Mary Eunice in American Horror Story: Asylum.



This is Rouge Noir, a 40s-inspired true movie-star red. Even if the two colours are quite similar, I think Femme Noir is the best guess, since it’s cooler and bluer than Rouge Noir.
