A new interview with Angelina made by Australian Vogue and Angie discusses her work with Guerlain, femininity, feminism and what lessons she tries to teach her daughters.
“Equality is not about us all being the same. It is about the freedom to make our own choices and live our own lives fully, not at the expense of men, but alongside men.”
In early 2017, Angelina Jolie was selected as the face of Guerlain’s Mon Guerlain fragrance, a choice that Jolie noted at the time was an easy one, thanks to her late mother Marcheline Bertrand’s fondness for the French beauty house.
Jolie was the first Hollywood actress to have ever co-created a fragrance for the house (a coup to say the least) and now, thanks to the release of the Mon Guerlain eau de toilette, Jolie has given Vogue Australia unprecedented access into her world to celebrate her affinity for the brand.
Here, Jolie opens up to Vogue to discuss femininity, raising her family and the remarkable women who inspire her.
What values do you identify the most with the Maison Guerlain?
“When you visit the Guerlain House on the Champs-Elysées you get a sense of the history of the company. It is the oldest perfume house in the world. For nearly 200 years they’ve been making perfumes that celebrate femininity in all its forms. But I’d never endorsed a perfume before, and would not have unless I was sure of the values and ethos of the company. They have a genuine commitment to the environment, sustainable development and the communities they work with. That’s what brought us together.”

It was announced on July 27, 2018, that the French cosmetics brand Guerlain will launch a third version of the perfume “Mon Guerlain”. They have also released a new commercial with several new scenes and a print ad for this campaign which you can view below and in the photo gallery.
The third edition of the “Mon Guerlain” line arrives in September 2018 and was named “Mon Guerlain Eau de Toilette”, which this time will come radiant, fresh and cheerful, as a hymn to life, dedicating a dedication to contemporary femininity that has multiple layers. This new version of the fragrance was developed by Thierry Wasser and Delphine Jelk and combines the notes of lavender with tangerine.
Lavender expresses purity, honesty and strength while mandarin reflects the ability to accept the surprises of life with joy and pleasure. In the top notes of the new perfume are tangerine and lavender. On the heart notes is the Jasmine Sambac and on the base note is the vanilla.

Angelina will be in the April 2018 issue of InStyle Magazine but they have already published the online version. So you can either read it at their website or in our press archive.
On a chilly January evening, Angelina Jolie nestles into a couch inside the highly fragrant Guerlain boutique on Paris’s Champs-Élysées. We’re meeting to toast the launch of Mon Guerlain Eau de Parfum Florale, for which she is the face. Jolie’s face, apart from softly smoked eyes, looks natural. “We’re all pretty natural,” she says of her family. She takes her time as she discusses her makeup skills (they’re good, but daughter Zahara is more the enthusiast), her skin (cared for by a dermatologist since she was 11), and her views on what it’s like to age when you’re known as one of the world’s most beautiful women.
Guerlain posted a video for the Womens Day with a short interview with Angelina speaking about how we can help and empower women all over the world.
“I hope this year we will focus on the changes we can make, not just in ourselves, but in relation to women around the world who are most vulnerable. What laws can we change, what stigmas can we address? “
