Every woman has two sides to her- the naughty and the nice. The angel and the demon. The girl who is as sweet-as-sugar and the girl who is naughty-as-hell. And both of these women live inside one person, and come out when the public least expects them to. That is the idea behind Thierry Muglers iconic “Angel” fragrance- we as women are all part angel and part demon(in a good way of course).
I think there is an angel and a demon inside all of us. We all have the angel part and the girl who dreams of her white wedding gown, cooking dinner for her family every night and being the perfect wife. And we all have the naughty girl inside us, the girl who wants to ride away into the sunset on the back of a Harley Davidson with her boyfriend, the girl who dreams about a leather-studded jacket to wear on the back of the said bike, and dreams of living a life of adventure as a lone wolf. It is surprising and shocking that such different characters can live inside one person, but that is exactly the idea behind the new tagline of the fragrance- Beware of Angels, because you never know what kind of a woman hides inside the perfect wife and the perfect rebel.
The scent of the Angel fragrance is a first of its kind, a blend of glamour and edginess, femininity and strong will. It first launched in 1992 and blew the designer socks right of the beauty industry. 22 years later and this fragrance is in the Top 10 best-selling fragrances around the world, and although it keeps its scent and signature idea fixed, it plays around with the different kinds of women that embody the fragrance. The scent is strong; it is almost overpowering, but yet leaves you wanting more. Its berry, praline, vanilla and patchouli notes satisfy the desires for beautiful materials and it starts of sweet but then opens up to be spicy, just like a woman. It has become more than just a fragrance; it is a statement of women’s independence, femininity and glamour.
The models for the Angel fragrance have always embodied the concept of the fragrance. The previous face of the brand was Eva Mendes- a perfect blend of sexy and sweet. Look I am still not okay with the fact that she is having my future husbands baby but man, she is beautiful as hell.
Some of the other models to have been involved in the campaign are Jerry Hall(does she even age?) in 1993.
Naomi Watts in 2008
And model Anna Maria Cseh in 2003- fun fact, this dress weigh over 100 pounds, so she had to be lying down for the photos because the dress was simply too heavy to be shot standing up!
To celebrate the new face of the fragrance and the beautiful concept that is “Beware of Angels” I am giving one lucky reader an Angel hamper worth R1310 to celebrate the angel and the demon inside all of us. To win simply comment on this post and tell me what makes you the strong and confident woman that you are.
What makes me the strong and confident woman that I am? For me, it a mix of inner factors and outer factors. The fact that I love and I am loved. The fact that I get to do what I love and express myself everyday on this blog. And of course outer factors such as a dash of red lipstick, a pair of gorgeous heels , a sexy little black dress and some stunning lingerie never hurt anyone.
Best of luck, I can’t wait to hear your stories!
