Ricordi? (2018)

The male protagonist of the film (Luca Marinelli) goes to a perfume shop looking for a fragrance that reminds him of his past. He’s very upset, desperate to find it but he doesn’t know its name or if it actually exists.

There are some interesting bottles on a round table in the shop.

One of them is an Etro eau de toilette. Impossible to be more specific because the front label is not shown.

There are two Annick Goutal bottles, too, around which a mystery lies. Are they Mandragore or Mandragore Pourpre? I think they’re part of the Mandragore line but the light hitting them could make the darker glass of the Pourpre line look different. Both fragrances were launched in 2009, well before the release of the film, so it’s plausible for both of them to appear in this scene.
