Thierry Mugler launches a pop-up shop with Storefront in Paris to celebrate the latest addition to the Angel perfume line
Comme toujours, Thierry Mugler transports us to an addictive, magnetic world with the latest perfume creation, Angel Muse, by house nose and rising star of perfumery, Quentin Bisch. Nothing is more natural than Mugler, the prince of spectacle, to conceptualize a pop-up store in Paris to embody this intense, original olfactory creation.
Thierry Mugler, champion of the futuristic femme fatale
Thierry Mugler’s fertile imagination has been in full form since he began studying ballet at 9 years old. While many years of dance refined his relationship with the body and engendered his taste for aesthetics, he simultaneously studied interior design at the Strasbourg School of Decorative Art. His education in interior architecture and decoration sharpened his understanding of space, which later became the trademark of his fashion shows, where each garment was a work of art sublimated by incredible scenographies. He eventually outgrew Strasbourg and moved to Paris in the early 1970’s, where he presented his first drafts to Sentier retailers. Quickly noticed, he worked for many ready-to-wear houses before founding his first brand and becoming a star designer in the 80s with his signature futuristic, transcendent look.
New fragrance, new bottle, new codes:
“…a shock wave is shaking up the Angel galaxy. Angel MUSE, the new Eau de Parfum you will hate to love.”
Angel Muse is the latest “futuristic – gourmet” addition to the famous gourmand perfume, Angel, the perfume for “the woman of all desires, half angel, half demon”. As Angel represented the first gourmand perfume in 1992 and paved the way for a trend of sweet, candy-like perfumes well into the 90s and 2000s. Now, Angel Muse has been announced as the first gourmand vetiver scent for women.
Angel Muse is Angel reinvented by nose Quentin Bisch with more gentleness and a touch of modernity Its accord is luminous and not too sweet; it gradually develops into an elegant gourmand to stimulate our “olfactory appetite”. Developed by the fragrance contains a sweet accord of hazelnut cream with the elegant, woody and typically masculine character of vetiver balancing the creamy sweetness, and notes of grapefruit, pink berries, and patchouli, which all meet in the gluttony we have come to adore and expect from the Mugler house..
“To make an analogy, you could say that Angel Eau de Parfum is the star, while Angel MUSE orbits around the star and revolves as if around a galaxy.” Christophe de Lataillade, Creative Director for MUGLER Fragrances
The bottle design is described as a “cosmic pebble”, made of an elliptical, silver, metal ring with gently ambery, nude glass in the middle which reportedly evokes the surface of Mars.
The face of the perfume is Georgia May Jagger, who follows in her mother Jerry Hall’s steps as the face of the Angel perfume line. The photographer of the campaign is Sølve Sundsbø.
