I’ve covered Stevie Nicks’ bathrooms and dressing rooms several times: I’ve always loved her music and style, so it’s intriguing to identify the beauty products and perfumes she uses in real life. Some time ago a reader of this blog submitted a couple of pictures from the 1980s I’d never seen before. In both of them, there’s a mysterious product (a tall plastic bottle with black cap) which I was asked to identify.
The product in question is one of the most popular products by Neutrogena, a body oil. The advert above shows the packaging in 1979. This is not the exact bottle seen on Stevie Nicks’ tables, though, because the cap has a different shape.
The bottle shown in this advert from 1985 is more like it, even if I think the oil bottle seen in the second Stevie picture has a larger size.
In the first picture two Erno Laszlo bottles (lotion or Shake-It tinted treatment) can be seen as well.
Thanks to James for submitting this post and to Cédric for the id.
I’ve been obsessed with this picture of Stevie Nicks in the late 1970s since I found it online. She’s sitting at a tiled dressing table, where there are three products which have immediately caught my attention. All of them are by Erno Laszlo: a bottle (among meds), a jar and a soap.
Impossible to say if the bottle contained a lotion, a toner or the Shake-It tinted treatment. On the other hand, I’m pretty sure the jar contained a face powder. But the same packaging was used for other products (including the famous Active pHelityl cream), so I could be wrong. The soap on the far right is Active Phelityl.
Last but not least, the brush next to the jar is by Mason Pearson.
I’ve always imagined Stevie Nicks wearing an intoxicating, sexy and witchy scent like Fracas (supposedly one of her favourite perfumes), so seeing a Nina Ricci perfume on her dressing table came as a surprise. I don’t know exactly when the picture above was taken (late 1970s? Early 1980s?), but it portrays Stevie with Herbert Worthington III, her official photographer.
It’s unclear what exact perfume is shown, because Nina Ricci used the same refillable spray bottle for several perfumes. It could be L’air du temps, the timeless warm spicy fragrance created by Francis Fabron and launched just after WWII, in 1948.
It could also be Farouche, a floral aldehyde fragrance launched in 1973.
Or even Capricci, another woody/spicy creation by Fabron, launched in 1960.
