While watching the film, seeing a bottle of Clarins Eau Dynamisante on Allie’s dresser didn’t surprise me at all. I think very few perfumes can capture a certain 1990s vibe as accurately as this perfume. Fresh, citrusy and never overpowering, it was created by Jacques Courtin-Clarins in 1987. It was the epitome of that chic minimal mood with an active twist which was a staple of that decade.
There’s Perlier Honey cream soap in Allie’s bathroom.
The Italian brand was huge in the 1990s, so this sighting brings back lots of memories. I’ve lost count of the times I gifted friends with Perlier’s lovely bodycare products. My favourite lines were White Almond, White Musk and Honey.
The opening credit sequence is set in a bathroom, where one girl is putting make-up on her twin. Later in the film, we will see these are Hedy (one of the protagonists, whose real name is actually Ellen Besch) and her twin sister. Many bottles are on the tiled counter.
On the right there are English Leather and Old Spice colognes.
The tall bottle with round black stopper is Jean Natè after-bath splash.
