    Default Have you ever noticed any perfumes used in tv/movies?

    I was watching sunday's episode of American Dad just now on Hulu and noticed Roger using CK one!

    On It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, in the episode in which they think Mac is a serial killer, Charlie finds Mac's bottle of Drakkar Noir (which he pronounces, several times, as druh-Cahr Nuh-Wahr) while snooping through his apartment and proceeds to douse himself with it. One of my favorite episodes...

    I watched Scent of a Woman with Pacino last week and he made a reference to Mitsouko.

    I believe someone also mentioned the latest Bond flick featured a bottle of Santa Maria Novella showing in the purse contents of the female lead.

    In American Psycho you can see YSL Pour Homme in Bateman's medicine cabinet as he's going through his post-shower ritual.

    That would be Casino Royale with Eva Green as Vesper, she wore SMN Melograno. Which made me want it, and its one of my favourites now

    I was wondering if there was a Scents in Movies thread, thanks for starting it! I hope to see more additions here!

    It really is her scent! I don't remember which episode, sorry, only that Joan and perhaps Peggy are going out to dinner. Right before they leave, Joan says she'll only put on some Shalimar and then she's ready.

    Perfection. Joan's character is simply divine.

    Hm, what would Peggy wear I wonder?

    I didn't notice that! I think that he wears something from Paul Smith in the book.

    I was watching the new Criterion Blu-Ray edition of Last Year at Marienbad, when the camera slowly panned over the vanity table in A's hotel room, on which there was a cologne bottle with fancy French lettering. Thanks to blu-ray, I was able to freeze the scene and make out "LT Piver, Le Trefle Incarnat," which you can read about here: http://www.perfumeprojects.com/museu...r_trefle.shtml

    Ha, I hear you! That shot of Vesper's effects is what got me into this whole fragrance thing. Love Casino Royale like mad, which led to having some related Google alerts for Eva Green/Daniel Craig, which led to a post at PST identifying the fragrance in that shot, which led to wondering how I could try it, which led to decants...and that, my friends, is the on-ramp to the road to ruin

    In "The Talented Mr. Ripley", Matt Damon's character buys a bottle of SMN perfume for Jude Law's girlfriend in the movie which is Gwyneth Paltrow. I don't remember them mentioning the exact fragrance, but they do show her with the SMN box.

    Somewhere in the archive there is an ancient thread on this same topic, but I was too lazy to look it up. So, I'm reprinting some of my own observations:

    In "The Pink Panther" (1963), David Niven has Acqua di Selva in the medicine cabinet of his hotel bathroom.

    A bottle of Woodhue/Faberge is on top of Glenn Ford's dresser in "The Courtship of Eddie's Father."
    (1963)

    Johnny Depp sprays himself with Halston Limited in Don Juan DeMarco.

    I'd really be interested what Jackie Aprile Jr. was using in an episode of the 3-rd season of "The Sopranos"
    Also, what Scarlett O'Hara was using, in the famous "cologne-scene" from "Gone with the win", although the bottle had the inscription of a 19th century, probably fictional, Parisian eau de cologne
    Same goes for Fabrizio di Salina, played by Burt Lancaster, in the Visconti's film "The Leopard" (1963), during the almost equally famous bath scene

    Not to derail the thread here, but what do you guys/gals think of this as a "mens" scent...? I know we do a lot of gender bendering here, but I'd still like to be accepted, by like, you know, "normal" people...

    IMHO, if you enjoy a particular fragrance, be it male or female, it should be worn with confidence, and wanting to be accepted by the "normal" people, in my opinion, denotes insecurity. Just my $0.02.

    I understand this idea... but those that stand out as different will be mocked. Fact. It's best not to stand out in the way you look/smell IMHO (wearing a feminine scent fo'sho'!) but it's fine to stand out by being a big character/personallity... THAT'S where people should be different.

    +1, but replacing "normal" with "mediocre". ;-)

    In some cases, being different may result in being mocked, which I why I said that in order to stand out (ie. be different) you need to be confident with yourself so that if you are, for some reason, faced with mockery, you can defend yourself.

    Yes, this is a matter of opinion. In my case, I have a unique personality, and prefer to match my personality with an equally unique fragrance. I find that matching a boring fragrance with an interesting personality just results in your overall image as being perceived as "boring" by others who smell the fragrance.

    Ah but is not "boring" a definition of a particular scent 'from YOUR perspective' where someone else would find it far from boring perhaps? After all, someone may think JPG is boring yet someone else would think it's the best! So in fact where some may wear something "unique" to be different, in someone else's eyes could just be wearing something 'boring'?

    Or something!
