Last night the stars were shining closer to us in Neuilly when Véra Strubi presented the wonderful story of Angel, the creation of the brand and its future to an audience with perfumers and cosmetologists. She took us with her time machine in the Mugler galaxy when all has started - the Big Bang, the genius of Mugler and his extraordinary fashion shows that exist today only in the soul and memory of those who lived that era (few of them are available online and a small video cannot reveal the magic of a stage greater than life). The perfume had its Creator and its Guardian Angel. In his fantastic universe with magic creatures Thierry Mugler was not just a super hero creator, but a God. The perfume was made in God's image and it could not have existed without its angel - Véra Strubi. Listening to her, her passion, her love, her power, was something unique, magic and inspirational and in this story she was both the Fairy Queen that made a wish come true (Mugler as a child and a stranger to perfumes) and the Guardian Angel that secured the life and the evolution of the perfume. Do not take my words as a metaphor because I truly believe this is how this perfume happened to be. You love it or hate it - this is secondary. Véra Strubi invited also Yves de Chiris and Olivier Cresp and in the end she presented the future of the perfume and of Thierry Mugler, the new elements of the makeup and their constant desire to give spectacular products (with a glimpse of their new innovative cosmetics). She also explained some unusual elements from the history of Angel, that were not revealed previously to the press. There were many questions from the audience because this creation continues to fascinate and inspire (too many) other perfumes. Véra Strubi believes that a phenomenon like Angel is still possible today, despite the many launches, and only the passion and the true desire to innovate are the key (the only great problem today is the distribution system). Listening to Véra Strubi gives you wings and makes you dream. Maybe that's the great lesson from this perfume - finding the right angel!
