    Default Fragrances spotted in movies

    Maybe it's a silly topic , but since I'm interested in fragrances every time I watch a film and see a bathroom (or any other place/situation) with bottles I try to spot which fragrances could be there.
    The other day I spotted Allure pour homme in "Tamara Drewe".
    Do you do the same? in that case, which fragrances/movies?

    I can't remember the title of the movie, but I remember seeing Trophee Lancome.

    I was actually trying to figure out the other day what cologne I saw Charlie Sheen in Two and a Half Men (sorry, not a major motion picture...)spray on. It was shaped like a traditional Old Spice bottle, but, was frosted glass. I checked out the Old Spice line on here and didn't see one that looked similar. That is my most recent scent in pop culture sighting.

    Famously, the unfateful Deneuve's Mitsouko bottle in Belle de Jour:

    (fast forward to 4:30).

    I remember Elena V's discussing a few perfumes in movies in her perfumeshrine blog, but I forget the details.

    "Cheri" with Michele Pfeiffer. A still beautiful but aging Belle Epoque courtesan embarks on a love affair with the son of one of her colleagues. Leah daubs on perfume at her dressing table. This film is a feast for the eyes of fans of Art Nouveau: the costumes, the architecture, the decorative arts.

    "The Red Baron" with Mathias Schweighofer. A highly fictionalised tale based on the life of the great German fighter ace of World War I. The wounded air warrior awakens in a hospital to the smell of his nurse's perfume, later making her his mistress. He says she smells, "much better than flowers."

    "Coco and Igor" with Mads Mickessen. Lots of scenes with perfume references, including the boutique launch of Chanel No. 5 and the parfumerie of Ernest Beaux. See this film just for the perfume.

    In an episode of Sex and the City series (season 6, episode 12, namely "One"), there is Creed's Spring Flower on Samantha's bathroom sink.
    Also in another episode (season 4, episode 7, "Time and Punishment), Carrie has the Baies candle from Diptyque. It's not a fragrance but I thought it was good enough to post.

    In Grey's Anatomy Alex Karev has Old Spice in his locker at work. Don't know which episode it's visible in but certainly in a more recent series.

    During the first seconds, way below the one minute mark of the film "Face to Face" (1999, IMDB profile: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0188617/) a bottle of Ispahan by Yves Rocher is visible on a dressing table.
    While much later in the film, Chanel toiletries including a Chanel makeup case are visible due to the distinctive intertwined double C logo, mostly on black backgrounds.

    Watched BAD EDUCATION on HBO and character played by High Jackman used Ralph Lauren SAFARI.
    I don't get out much. But when I do, I smell real good.

    There's a scene in IT Part 2 where someone goes into an antique store and there are some empty (I think) bottles of Guerlain Mahora behind the counter. This was funny to me because as soon as I saw that it was an antique store, I started reflexively scanning the place for vintage perfumes and also because I had purchased a bottle of Mahora just that day or maybe the day before.

    I'm almost certain that I recall seeing some vintage Guerlain Shalimar bottles on Jackie Kennedy's dresser in the Natalie Portman movie about Jackie post John F Kennedy's assassination.

    I also have a memory of Mel Gibson's 'Riggs' character in Lethal Weapon 2 having a bottle of Hero by Prince Matchabelli in his trailer.

    Was watching a British movie the other day on the Roku Channel, Toast. There was a scene where the father was in the bathroom and splashed on a little Old Spice.
