Sarah Jessica Parker’s Bathroom

sjpbathroom_bornunicornYesterday 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:

lelabo_patchouli24_bornunicorn

Le Labo Patchouli 24, a patchouli perfume with vanilla base note, created by Annick Menardo in 2006.

annickgoutal_bornunicorn.jpgTwo 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.

dana_lovesbabysoft_bornunicornFirst 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.

bulgarieauparfumeethevert_bornunicorn.jpgBulgari Eau Parfumée au Thé Vert, a quintessentially 1990s perfume created by the master Jean-Claude Ellena and launched in 1992.

guerlainvetiver_bornunicornLast 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.

santamarianovellacologne_bornunicornOn 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.

Sex and the City S06E07 (Hop, Skip, and a Week)

viviennewestwoodlibertine_bornunicornThere’s a bottle of Vivienne Westwood Libertine on the window sill in Carrie’s bedroom. This fragrance was created by Martin Gras and launched in 2000 as the lighter side of the British designer’s first fragrance, Boudoir. The bottles of the two perfumes are very similar, but Libertine‘s is taller.

kerastase_chromatermique_bornunicornSome days ago Sarah Jessica Parker posted an interesting picture on her Instagram account, along with the comment: “The necessary tools. It’s work, I swear. X sj PS I am not her without you @sergenormant”. I think it’s clear the third Sex and the City movie is on its way, right? Am I the only one who thinks “her” refers to Carrie Bradshaw? Or was she only speaking about her public persona? Mandy Lyons was the hair-stylist of the actress in the show and in the movies, but Normant is the hair guru behind Parker‘s trademark tousled hair; he’s given his name to a haircare line, some products of which can be seen in the picture above.

I’ve spotted Dream Big instant volumizing spray (the blue can), Meta Revive dry shampoo with cedar bark and and Meta Sheer dry oil finishing spray. There’s also a Kérastase product, Chroma Termique, a thermo-radiance protecting milk for colour-treated hair. SJP (and probably Normant too) has been a Kérastase fan since Sex and the City: in an episode from the 6th season you can see a bottle of Nutri-Sculpt serum in Carrie’s bathroom. As a matter of fact, the American actress often asked Sex and the City prop masters to make her favourite beauty products appear in the show… But more about this in an upcoming post 😉
