Yesterday Sarah Jessica Parker posted this picture on her Instagram account. Needless to say, I am in awe of all these perfume bottles sitting in her bathroom. From left to right I can see:
Le Labo Patchouli 24, a patchouli perfume with vanilla base note, created by Annick Menardo in 2006.
Two very big bottles of Annick Goutal Eau d’Hadrien (old packaging). This citrusy fragrance, inspired to Mémoires d’Hadrien (1951) by Marguerite Yourcenar, was created by Annick Goutal herself in 1981.
First launched in 1971, this powdery musky creation by Ron Winnegrad is still on the market. When the actress launched her first fragrance, Lovely, in 2005, she explained one of her sources of inspiration was Love’s Baby Soft, which she wore as a teenager.
Bulgari Eau Parfumée au Thé Vert, a quintessentially 1990s perfume created by the master Jean-Claude Ellena and launched in 1992.
Last but not least, Guerlain Vetiver, originally created by Jean-Paul Guerlain and launched in 1959. It’s not clear whether this is an old version (with the beautiful opaque glass bottle by Robert Granai) or the Eau Glacée or Sport versions, respectively launched in 2004 and 2006.
On the table there are other two bottles I’m quite on the fence with. One, on the left, is Narciso Rodriguez For Her, but the bottle is different from the black one on the market (see the rounded edges). The other is the small bottle on the front: it looks like a Hermès perfume but the cap is not rounded, so I’m not sure.
On the bottom shelf I can see Youth Dew by Estee Lauder and a perfume by Santa Maria Novella.
The two tulle Mickey Mouse ears seen in the picture are by L’Wren Scott (right) and by Gigi Burris (left). She wore the first at the unveiling of Barney’s Electric Holiday collection in 2012 and the second at the recent opening of Mickey: The True Original Exhibition in New York.
Thanks to Lee in the comments for the Estee Lauder id.
