The Politician S02E02 (Conscious Unthroupling)

There’s an eau de cologne by Officina Profumo Santa Maria Novella in Astrid’s bathroom cabinet. Impossible to tell exactly what fragrance this is: the brand uses the same bottle and the same wording for most of its colognes.

On the same shelf there’s a fluted bottle: it could be an Annick Goutal perfume or one by L’Occitane (old packaging in both cases) but the bottle is without stopper, so it’s hard to tell.

The Politician S01E08 (Vienna)

Hadassah Gold (Bette Midler) is the chief of staff and assistant of Dede Standish (Judith Light), the New York State senate majority leader. They are about to meet the junior senator-elect from Texas but there’s a problem: Dede has just put on a lipstick which is not her favourite.

As Hadassah confirms by reading the shade sticker at the bottom of the tube, Dede puts on Pretty Please by MAC, a pale pink pearl shade that makes her look like a corpse.

But the emergency is immediately solved: Hadassah takes the right lipstick – Politely Pink (dirty pink) – out of her bag.

She even puts it on her boss, who’s very nervous about the upcoming meeting.

The Politician S01E03 (October Surprise)

When Peyton (Ben Platt) finally pays a visit to his former girlfriend Alice (Julia Schlaepfer), we finally get to see her bedroom (beautiful as the rest of her mansion) and her dresser. Unfortunately, it’s just a fleeting moment, but I’ve been able to identify some of the bottles sitting on it.

There are two perfumes with very distinctive bottles. The white one is Tom Ford Soleil Blanc eau de parfum, part of the Private Blend collection, created by Nathalie Gracia-Cetto and launched in 2016. The round bottle is Chanel Chance, possibly the Eau Tendre version, created by Jacques Polge and launched in 2010. There are also two Moroccanoil products: the pump bottle is the hydrating styling cream, while the spray bottle is Glimmer Shine finishing spray.
