The perfume that has been mentioned and seen in the show several times – Drakkar Noir by Guy Laroche – appears at a fashion photoshoot in New York, where David Meyers is working as assistant.
There’s a bottle of Cacharel Anais Anais perfume in the bathroom where Karen (Gage Golightly) is crying, not sure whether to marry Barry or not. It’s unclear if the girl is wearing this perfume, but it would be perfect for her. I personally see this white floral, created in 1978 by Roger Pellegrino, Robert Gonnon, Paul Leger and Raymond Chaillan, as one of the most romantic fragrances ever.
Fay Getty (Gina Gershon) uses Elizabeth Arden Beautiful Color moisturizing lipstick in a dusty rose shade.
Nash (Ennis Esmer) and other members of the Red Oaks Club staff are having an outdoor party. When asked what his blood tastes like to mosquitoes, he replies: “Cardamom and Drakkar Noir.”
No surprise he namedrops the perfume by Guy Laroche. Created by Pierre Wargnye in 1982, it was basically everywhere in the 1980s.
There has been a bag swap at the Red Oaks Club: Wheeler (Oliver Cooper) realises what has happened when he finds a bottle of Williams Aqua Velva after-shave lotion in the bag which turns out to be Herb’s.
A bottle of Old Spice cologne can be seen in David Meyer’s locker.
In Nash’s bathroom there are a bottle of Guy Laroche Drakkar Noir (his favourite perfume) and a can of Gillette Right Guard deodorant.
