Guerlain Parfumeur announces Angelina Jolie as the icon for their latest fragrance for women. While the partnership was made in December 2015 as Angelina was in Cambodia directing her film First They Killed My Father, it has its roots in Angelina’s childhood memory of her own mother’s love of a Guerlain powder.
Strong, feminine icon
Thierry Wasser, Guerlain’s Master Perfumer, drew his inspiration from Angelina Jolie to create a fragrance expressing the idea of the “notes of a woman”: the choices, emotions and dreams that embody modern femininity. “We create perfumes for the women we admire” said Jacques Guerlain, creator of mythical fragrances such as Shalimar, L’Heure Bleue and Mitsouko.
Angelina Jolie is a filmmaker, Special Envoy of the UN Refugee Agency and co-founder of the Preventing Sexual Violence Initiative. We at Refined Travellers are more than happy to share that she has donated her entire salary from the Guerlain campaign to an undisclosed charity.
