    Default Fragrances spotted in movies!

    Tonight I was watching Moonraker and during one of the scenes a bottle of Christian Dior Dior Dior plays an interesting part.... there are two bottles, one is real and the other is a flame thrower so it kind of easy to pick up on.

    I think this is the first time I have ever noticed a fragrance brand being used in a movie... has anyone else watched a movie and been like "Oh I know what they are using"?

    A bottle of Mitsouko plays a symbolic role in Belle de jour, a 1970s movie by Bunuel with Catherine Deneuve.

    Loved Moonraker back in the day - I'll have to watch it again. Don't recall the bottle at all.

    And now must see Belle de Jour (which I may have seen, but so long ago that I don't recall for sure, and certainly don't remember Mitsouko).

    Its the scene (maybe middle of the movie) where Bond goes to Dr Holly Goodhead's apartment and finds all her goodies, pen with a needle in it, diary with a poison dart and she picks up the real bottle of dior dior to use on herself and bond picks up the fake, uses it and out comes flames .

    In belle du jour, there's a scene in which Severine/Deneuve inadvertedly smashes a pefect vintage, mossy, big round "clock" bottle of Mitsouko because she's fantasizing about becoming a prostitute. In the next scene, she does so.

    But of course!

    My wife has always been a Connery diehard, but Daniel Craig is definitely growing on her!

    Classic! (absolutely no pun intended) Story that good can't even be hidden by a brief synopsis.

    Not sure if anyone has seen / will admit to having seen L'Apollonide: Souvenirs de la Maison Close.
    It is set in a turn of the century Paris brothel.
    In a passionate moment, a gentleman tells a prostitute how good she smells. 'C'est Jicky de Guerlain' she replies.
    Also spotted a bottle of Mitsouko on a bathroom shelf.

    In the move American Psycho, I believe the character Patrick Bateman, shows his bottles of YSL Pour Monsieur, in a scene where he opens the bathroom mirror/cabinet.

    In the film "The Duchess" Kiera Knightly in the role of the duchess finished her toilette with the help of her maid and touches on perfume at the base of her ear.

    Really? Eucris (the fragrance) wasn't created until the 80's.

    In the books Bond specifically says English Men don't wear scent ... they wash.

    The Eucris (hair dressing) was gifted to him in a book, but that would have been a violet scent and not at all like the modern cologne.

    You're welcome.

    Yup. Cool!

    In the film Hannibal, Santa Maria Novella plays an important role. Hannibal sends Clarice Starling a letter. She realises that it is fragranced. They gather together a panel of noses (great scene), and from there they track Hannibal to the Santa Maria Novella shop in Via della Scala in Florence. I think that some bottles of SMN also appear on Pazzi's wife's dressing table.

    In 'Breaking and Entering' by Anthony Minghella, Jude Law gives a bottle of Jo Malone cologne (his wife's favourite) to a prostitute. I just remember thinking what a minging thing for his character to do!. I think his wife dumped him in the end (hope so)

    Yes, I just watched that for the first time last week on cable and noticed it as well. He may be more than a bit "off" but I like his taste in fragrance. ;-)

    In "Auntie Mame", Christmas time brought a huge disk bottle of Shalimar EDT or, possible, cologne. In "All About Eve" a boule bottle of Arpege sits on her vanity. And in Visconti's "The Damed", all manner of Guerlains made there way onto the set.

    Just last weekend we were watching the Christmas episode of "Downton Abbey's" second season. One of the female characters was holding a Guerlain box. That was almost more exciting than seeing a bottle. I mean, when was the last time you saw a perfume BOX in a movie or TV show?

    It is! Plus the music, and Ridley Scott's images of Florence, and Tony hamming it up. Watch it and tell us what you think.
