You’ll have to excuse the blurred image, you see my hands were shaking while I was taking the photo. These new fragrances by Thierry Mugler won’t be announced to the media until tomorrow and aren’t really available to the public until Thursday, April 24th. I snapped the photo while nobody was looking.
Why Mugler chose Montreal, Toronto and Vancouver to launch a new series of perfumes is beyond me but there you have it. According to the Mugler Sales Associate, the world launch is happening right here in Canada. There are five new fragrances available initially and five more on the way. The SA was very careful about what she was telling me because it’s all so new but the noses behind the first five fragrances are Olivier Polge (before his announcement to join Chanel) and Jean-Christophe Hérault… alongside consultation with Mr. Mugler.
The names of the fragrances are Oriental Express, Chyprissime, Fougère Furieuse, Supra Floral and Over the Musk. From an initial test on paper, the one that impressed me the most was Supra Floral, a Chamade-like green, spring floral. It lasted on my skin for several hours and I thought it was lovely. I’d rather not talk about the other fragrances until I’ve tested them on my skin but I thought on paper they certainly warranted a skin test.
Refillable bottles of 80 mls. go for $185 Canadian dollars. The refill will cost you $127 per bottle.
When these will launched to the worldwide public, I have no idea. When I find out more, I’ll let you know.
