How to Get Away with Murder S06E15 (Stay)

howtogetawaywithmurder_s06e15_bornunicornIn the very last episode of the tv show, Annalise (Viola Davis) faces the most important trial of her life, the one where she’s accused of killing basically all the people that have died in 6 seasons. In this scene, while she’s discussing with her mother whether she deserves to win this final challenge or not, we can see two interesting beauty products on her vanity.

How to Get Away with Murder S01E06 (Freakin’ Whack-a-Mole)

eaudecartierconcentree_bornunicornCartier Eau de Cartier Concentrée, a citrus aromatic perfume created by Christine Nagel and launched in 2002, can be seen on Annalise Keating’s dressing table.

When I first spotted it, I thought it wasn’t the right choice for her. I expected her to wear something bold, more in-your-face, but then I realized I was wrong: the fresh note of yuzu combined with lavender, cedar, coriander, white amber and patchouli seems just perfect for her, as it’s fresh, clean and unfussy, a quiet detail in her hectic life.

Annalise Keating’s dressing table is always worth a careful look because there’s often something interesting on it. In the opening scene of this episode she puts some NARS blush on and picks a Tom Ford black-case lipstick, even if she ends up wearing a different lipstick.

The title of this episode refers to Rodion Romanovič Raskol’nikov, the protagonist of Fëdor Dostoevskij’s Crime and Punishment (1866): he kills a pawnbroker and her sister; he gets away with the double murder until he decides to admit the crime. Could it be a hint to what will happen next in the tv show?
