Angel Nova: Thierry Mugler’s new eau de parfum
This is how he developed the first gourmet fragrance in history. Since then, Angel has never stopped talking about him and reinventing himself year after year. Once again, in 2020, he repeats the experience and gives birth to Angel Nova. So what about this fruity and floral scent, presented in a star-shaped bottle? We tell you everything!
Angel Nova, new pink star by Thierry Mugler
Thierry Mugler is an atypical designer who has always had his feet on the ground and his head in the clouds. It was therefore natural that he decided to make the star one of his greatest symbols. Thus, for the very first version of Angel, in 1992, he developed a star-shaped bottle in a transparent blue color. Today, this container reappears, while being slightly metamorphosed. From now on, the bottle of Angel Nova is no longer placed at an angle but rather stands upright. She no longer adopts the same color as before but also dares a raspberry pink much more flashy and sparkling. A true guarantee of energy, this bottle is also respectful of the environment and can be recharged endlessly. Presented in two sizes,
Raspberry as a major ingredient in Angel Nova
The color of Thierry Mugler’s Angel Nova bottle says a lot about its main ingredients. Its vitamin effect is reminiscent of all the fruits present in its recipe. Indeed, Angel Nova begins with an alliance of raspberry and lychee, for a very lively and slightly exotic effect. Then, in its heart, romanticism and femininity take over, in particular by a contribution of Damascus rose. Little by little, the whole is structured with a more woody base of benzoin and akigalawood. Very different from its predecessors, Angel Nova takes the bias to move away from the oriental and greedy universe of the first Angel, a daring choice but paying!
Toni Garrn, the new face of the Thierry Mugler woman
Finally, note that Angel Nova is also accompanied by changes in advertising. This time, it’s German model Toni Garrn’s turn to lend her image to the saga. Particularly famous in the world of modeling, she has been walking the biggest catwalks since the age of 13. Here, she symbolizes the assertive, irresistible and daring spirit of the new modern heroine of Thierry Mugler. This fragrance invites every woman to “live according to her dreams”. Angel Nova is a new star in the history of feminine perfumery, forever crystallizing the magic and imagination of designer Thierry Mugler. p>
Angel is more than just a perfume. He is above all a true legend of women’s perfumery. Designed in 1992, it revolutionized the history of feminine compositions, by establishing a new olfactory trend: that of gourmet perfumes. Since then, it has never stopped reinventing itself and giving birth to different variations of its scent. Even today, in 2020, Angel takes us to new territory, now more fruity and romantic. Its Angel Nova fragrance owes its existence to perfumers Quentin Bisch, Louise Turner and Sonia Constant. So, let’s see together in more detail what it is about its composition …
A look back at the olfactory history of Thierry Mugler’s Angel saga
< p> Before discussing in more detail the recipe for the new Angel Nova fragrance by Thierry Mugler, let us take you back into the history and olfactory world of Angel. In 1992, Thierry Mugler had the idea of developing a perfume “which could have a resonance common to everyone, something close to tenderness, to childhood”. With Angel, he “wanted to have sensual contact, that you almost want to eat the person you love.” This is how he took it into his head to make a gourmet essence, something truly unprecedented at the time. Moreover, a good number of perfumers categorically refused to create his perfume. Very badly took them since, upon its release, Angel was classified as one of the most emblematic juices of his generation. Moreover, even 30 years after its release, it continues to be one of the best-selling perfumes on the planet. Since then, he has also been talked about in countless reinterpretations of his scent, each more inventive than the next.
The Angel Nova recipe
Si Angel Nova is part of a fragrant lineage, it must be recognized that it is very different from its predecessors. Indeed, for the very first time, it departs from the oriental and gourmet composition of the original Angel from 1992. Here, it is a more lively, natural and fruity composition, less sweet than before. Angel Nova is advertised by the brand as “an assertive, irresistible and daring fragrance, designed for the modern heroine of the Mugler universe, combining dream, fantasy and reality at the same time”. Moreover, the brand’s slogan could not be clearer on this subject: Angel Nova invites the wearer to “live according to her dreams”.
It all starts with a particularly fruity combination of raspberry and lychee. The raspberry leaves here its sweet and juicy breath, particularly energizing. Lychee, meanwhile, reinforces the roundness of this fragrance, while giving it a more exotic touch. Then, at its heart, Angel Nova relies on one of the most emblematic ingredients of women’s perfumery: the Damask rose. Used since the dawn of time to perfect romanticism and sensuality, the rose is quickly replaced by a more woody trail. Benzoin gives Angel Nova a more resinous side, while akigalawood amplifies its woody frame, while resembling a blend of patchouli wood and pepper. Despite her apparent sweetness, Angel Nova does not lack character!
