Powerful, mysterious, sensual, daring, dreamers... Multi-faceted and complex, the MUGLER woman has many faces. MUGLER has always helped women to assert their personality through extraordinary creations. Whether armed with perfume, a suit or a dress, these are enhancements as much as they are protection. Who are the true MUGLER women? International Women's Day is the perfect occasion to celebrate them.
Towards the end of the 19th century, modern perfumery, and with it, the perfumer’s organ, were gradually enriched with synthetic notes. These were intended to replace rare natural ingredients, to substitute notes from increasingly protected animal species, or to invent new notes beyond the natural world.
These synthetic molecules were obtained from chemical reactions or isolates created from natural ingredients. The arrival of these new notes brought a renewed abstraction and creativity to fragrances and saw the rise of new classics in perfumery. However, these notes are often seen by the general public as being of a lower quality than natural ingredients. They are, perhaps, unaware that some synthetic notes are much more complicated and expensive to produce than some natural raw ingredients.
Embracing technological progress once again, MUGLER very quickly adopted the notion of skillfully combining natural ingredients and molecules extracted through science to create extraordinary fragrances. Doesn’t this fusion of opposites fit in with the futuristic vision of nature shaped by the hand of man borrowed from its creator? A way of creating “augmented” fragrances. Fragrances that are more original, more liberated, more daring. Our addictive fragrances therefore give synthetic notes pride of place, mixing artifice and naturalness with precision and harmony. A way of also innovating, without exhausting the Earth’s natural resources, and creating responsible luxury. So, there we have it: it is possible to create a perfume without using flowers and without it being stripped of poetry and quality. How? Here’s how we managed it with four cult MUGLER fragrances.
The first fragrance created by MUGLER and the first “gourmand” trail in the history of perfumery, combined with an impossibly elaborate star-shaped bottle and a unique relationship with the women who wear it...
