Blow-Up (1966)

There are several bottles on the bathroom shelf in Thomas’ studio.

The dark green bottle on the far left is the atomiser of Rochas Moustache eau de cologne. This fougère fragrance, created by Edmond Roudnitska, was launched in 1949.

Behind Moustache there’s a tall bottle with red stopper: it’s Eau de Quinine hair tonic by Pinaud.

The most intriguing bottle sits on the far right side of the shelf: it’s the one made of frosted glass and with gold stopper.

It’s Lenthéric Onyx cologne, launched in 1964 and now discontinued.

Un tranquillo posto di campagna (1968)

There are many bottles on Flavia’s dressing table: among them, the unmistakable green bottle of Victor Acqua di Selva, a classic fougère fragrance first launched in 1949.

The tall bottle with gold stopper on the right is Rochas Madame Rochas, a woody/floral creation by Guy Robert launched in 1960.

Moving to the far right side of the table, there’s a fluted bottle with silver stopper: it’s another Rochas perfume, Moustache. It’s unclear whether this bottle contained the eau de toilette concentrée (launched in 1948) or the eau de cologne (launched one year later, in 1949): in any case, the fougère fragrance was a successful creation by Edmond Roudnitska and Thérèse Roudnitska.

The Polanskis’ Bathroom Shelf (1968)

This picture of Sharon Tate and Roman Polanski was taken by Bill Ray in London in 1968. On the bathroom shelf I can see some Erno Laszlo products (among which a jar of pHelityl Cream) and a Revlon nail polish. There are also Rochas Moustache and La Bottega Vetiver colognes.
