    There is a large bottle of Arpege on Bette Davis dressing table in "All About Eve," just before she goes out to meet her guests and says "Fasten your seatbelts..."

    Bottom middle is Avon for Men (1949)
    Top far right boot bottle is Avon Leather (1966)
    Top three left are part of the Avon Chess series and could contain anything from the 60's.
    Aramis sits behind the Avon for Men
    Vitalis is hair tonic not cologne.
    I also see vintage minis of Azzaro and Francesco Smalto
    I see Kouros too behind the minis
    I see a bottle of vintage Yardley -something-
    Aqua Velva Musk (new bottle design)
    Basically these are all from different eras of production, but since it's a comedy, nobody is gonna complain.
    oh look, I have a signature

    They also some some old bottles but no known labels as far as I can tell.

    You deceived me, Papsi! The ambergris was just a McGuffin, and not germane to the plot at all! (In fact, that whole season of Endeavour was very strange, every episode all over the map in style and writing.)

    I just watched Hitchcock's "North by Northwest" for the umpteenth time recently, and I noticed what looked like a bottle of Hermes perfume in Eva Marie Saint's train compartment. It's on a shelf above the sink.

    Me too, and even more for the beautiful Oxford setting and the relationship between the two cops than for the actual detective stories.

    As much of a Sunday tradition as a roast chicken.

    In the Netflix series Gypsy, Chance by Chanel is mentioned several times and becomes a minor plot point. It was actually this show that made me curious to smell Chance.

    In Preston Sturges's "Palm Beach Story", Claudette Colbert's character has an array of perfumes on her dressing table. The only one I could ID for sure was Shalimar. Some of the bottles looked like they might have been from Lucien Lelong. Another was possibly Arpege.

    I got two in one week (thanks, Netflix!)

    In Breaking Bad (somewhere around Season 3 I think--in the same episode where the pizza ends up on the roof), Walter White splashes on some Stetson before going to visit Skyler (with the pizza). Now we know.

    And in S1E3 of Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee, Jerry Seinfeld buys a bottle of Brui while he's visiting an old-school drugstore with Ellen DeGeneres (who asks for a bottle of Jean Nate).

    In "Guess Who's Coming To Dinner", you can see houndstooth bottles of Dior fragrance in the bathroom as Katharine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy prepare for dinner.

    In “The Family Man”, Nicolas Cage reaches into a box of some of his old belongings returned to him by his ex-girlfriend, played by Téa Leoni, and takes out and smells a bottle of English Leather by Dana.

    Speaking of the Sopranos again, have been re-watching the series and have noticed a ton of fragrance cameos, many already mentioned.

    A few I've noticed that haven't been mentioned so far:

    Season 5 Episode 5, a box of Boucheron Pour Homme is shown in the medicine cabinet at Chris and Adriana's apartment.

    "Big Pussy" has a bottle of Aramis on his dresser before he goes on his "last" boat ride with Tony and crew.

    The logo isn't shown, but Jackie Aprile Jr. appears to be spraying on what looks a lot like CK One during a phone call?

    Tony's mom asks Uncle Jr. what he's wearing in one episode, and he tells her it's Canoe.

    And going back to what a previous poster mentioned about Bobby Bacala, I think he also has a bottle of Polo Green and what looks to be Giorgio Wings for men on his dresser, in addition to Kouros.

    Sopranos is a literal gold mine of fragrance references. Never payed attention to it until after joining Basenotes.

    I was watching an episode of "The First 48" with my wife, and a defense attorney was on the screen describing the case. I said to her "that guy wears Polo by Ralph Lauren." She was surprised that I could deduce that just from his fashion sense and how he was speaking. She thought I was spending too much brain power on fragrances.

    It was then that I told her to look behind him at the green bottle with the gold top that was on the credenza behind his desk.

    Also...

    Don't forget that Clarice Starling uses Evyan skin cream and sometimes wears L'air du Temps...but not today (Silence of the Lambs).

    I use to try to zoom in on my TV and look at screenshots of Anchorman to see what Brian Fantana has in his hidden cologne cabinet. Some of them are props but others are actual real bottles.

    Not sure if this counts, but its a youtube short ( a spoof on American Psycho) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RWc8V-iKJ7s

    @1:48, we have very clear shots of Byredo's Bal d'Afrique and Sunday Cologne.

    It looks like we may have a non-fragrance Chanel, and Tom Ford as well.

    In the reboot of Queer Eye, there are at least a couple of episodes where Jonathan instructs the makeover subjects on how to apply perfume. Both times, it's a bottle of Diptyque, but I can't make out what it is. He also makes a point of saying that he learned his "spray, delay, walk away" application technique from the original QE.

    I guess this counts - I was watching on Forensic Files some crime scene footage that showed a bureau in the bedroom of a woman whose wealthy surgeon husband decided that Valentines Day would be a great day to play "head, meet bathroom floor" about fifty times with her. The purpose of the footage was to demonstrate that there was no signs of a break-in/burglary as the husband's alibi began to unravel.

    The camera panned quickly across the room, but not so quickly that I missed the towering can of Rive Gauche pour Homme.

    In the brief scene during "Lethal Weapon 2" at the home (which may be just a caravan/mobile home) of Riggs, the character played by Mel Gibson, a bottle of a Gucci male scent is visible in the background. Judging by the timeline, Gucci pour Homme, Eau de Gucci Concentree or Gucci Nobile would be historically/chronologically consistent.

    Speaking of re-enactments of historical fashion trends, posted the link above as a non-fictional example, reenacted with TV presenters, focusing mainly on food and lifestyles in general from the past (in this particular episode, the 70s).

    And though food is the main focus of this TV documentary series, there is indeed a sighting of Old Spice, albeit of a modern bottle around 37:03-being quite surprised by the fact that Old Spice was a popular male scent choice in 70s Britain, out of all places and past ages.

    In another episode, Tony also referenced Machiavelli's "The Prince" as Prince Matchabelli.

    Good running joke.

    Good running joke.

    Also Paulie seemed to carry around with him (remembering this particular scene both because it features a personal favorite fragrance and due to having quoted/posted this a few times on threads regarding scents shown/worn/mentioned in "The Sopranos") a miniature of Armani Eau pour Homme during the wedding of Allegra, the oldest daughter of Johnny Sack.

    Having re-watched (for yet another time after countless re-watchings) yet again another gangster film, namely the 1983 version of "Scarface" noticed, apart from the correctly sighted and mentioned Eau de Calandre, also a Lagerfeld bottle on the side of his lavish round bathtub, built into his equally over-sized gaudy bedroom.
    Even though not specifically identified nor easily visible as a Lagerfeld scent, it is most likely Lagerfeld Classic, since it would fit the both chronology as well as the characteristic ring shaped bottle cap design.
