There's a jar of Pond's dry skin cream on Jazmine Wintour's dressing table.
Let's take a moment to appreciate this screenshot: Elektra Wintour (Dominique Jackson) is gracing us with a rare smile and gives us the chance to get a closer look at her vanity. The small bottle on it is one of the greatest perfumes of the 1980s, Givenchy Ysatis, an "opulent fragrance that smells like luxury"… Continue reading Pose S02E05 (What Would Candy Do?)
One of the most intense and emotional moments in a VERY intense and emotional episode was the conversation between Candy (Angelica Ross) and her mother (Patrice Johnson Chevannes). In particular, a memory from the past is brought up: as a young boy, Candy wore her mother's perfume, a symbol of the "silent pact" she thought… Continue reading Pose S02E04 (Never Knew Love Like This Before)

The most important ball of the year is about to start and Elektra (Dominique Jackson) retouches Blanca's make-up by using Maybelline Great Lash mascara.
When Elektra Abundance (Dominique Jackson) visits the nail salon where Blanca (MJ Rodriguez) works, it's clear she's not interested in getting a manicure.

In the adverts above… Continue reading Pose S01E02 (Access)

This is a lovely namedrop, because it refers to the Yves Saint Laurent perfume that really defined a decade. Created by Pierre Bourdon and launched in 1981, it was unforgettable in its original formulation,… Continue reading Pose S01E02 (Access)
