Since 1992 and the launch of Angel, a true olfactive UFO, Thierry Mugler cultivated the art of surprise by offering new fragrances, always  out of the box. A*men, Mugler Cologne, Alien and recently Womanity are the witnesses of Mugler courage to reinvent himself no matter trends or fashion influences… He reinvented high-perfumery and offered to the world a new olfactive family thanks to Angel: the Gustative notes. The Praline note of Angel opened a window on a new way to formulate oriental fragrances towards a more “tasteful” path.

The Fragrances limited editions were sold independently and also in a prestigious coffret for Christmas 2010. For the brand it was the opportunity to keep the luxury and sophisticated universe of the creator alive towards the fragrances. Even a especial adverting was shot in order to stage the scene…

Star and mother of the Gustative fragrances, this time the Cocoa powder is used to boost the mythical notes of Angel, Praline, vanilla and red fruits.  Incorporated into the original formula, the bitter cocoa powder was chosen as a taste enhancer, and it vibrates the gourmand notes of Angel to make them intensely sensual. Even the famous Patchouli is transcended in order to bring a “nature-like taste” for the fragrance.
