Tara (Maggie Siff) visits Otto (Kurt Sutter) in hospital and brings him his favourite perfume, the one worn by his (now dead) lover Luann. Described by Gemma as smelling “like cum and patchouli,” it’s the only fragrance Otto wanted Luann to wear. No surprise that he asks Tara to wear it for him. The scene where he sniffs her wrist is pure perfume fetishism, a very intimate and vaguely erotic moment.
There’s a bottle of Halston cologne on Tara’s dresser. This is a hugely successful perfume, first launched in 1975: it’s a woody fragrance whose most prominent notes are oakmoss, incense and amber; it symbolized (and still does) the most glamourous and glitziest side of that decade.
There’s an Orly nail polish (the old bottle, with the rubberized cap) on Tara’s bed-side table.
The lovely Gianna, the blogger behind Noveau Cheap, posted this id on her blog on January 2014. She was so kind to send me a link to her post as a contribution. Much appreciated ♥
There’s a tube of Maybelline Great Lash mascara on Lyla’s dressing table.

Tara (Maggie Siff) and Gemma (Katey Sagal) talk about Luann’s favourite perfume. Gemma’s description (“smelled like cum and patchouli”) makes me think of heady hippie scents from the 1970s.
