Mannequin (1987)

mannequin_bornunicorn (3)Hollywood Montrose (Meshach Taylor) works as a window dresser at the department store Prince & Company. He’s one of the few persons who are friendly with Jonathan (Andrew McCarthy). After being hired as shop boy, Jonathan will soon start working – exclusively at night – as window dresser. His displays will become hugely successful, much to Hollywood’s delight.

In the scene above, Hollywood is working on a perfume display which includes several factice bottles of famous perfumes from the 1980s.

First, Emanuel Ungaro Diva, created by Jacques Polge in 1983

Someone to Watch Over Me (1987)

I can only assume the Chanel perfume is no.5, but the same bottle has been used for other fragrances.
