A STAR IS BORN

Fashion (Canada) - - Fashion X Clarins -

Thierry Mu­gler says that as a boy, he felt like a mis­fit. He was lonely and un­happy and would of­ten run away from home. “I would spend my night on a bench look­ing up at the stars,” he re­calls. “I would watch the skies and look for the blue star and know that I had to hold on.” It was a prophetic ob­ser­va­tion. When An­gel de­buted in 1992, the blue star-shaped bot­tle went on to be­come as iconic as the scent. The keep­sake bot­tle has been reimag­ined over the years, but this was the orig­i­nal de­sign. At the time, Mu­gler felt the glass fla­con was too beau­ti­ful to throw away so he launched a re­fill­able ser­vice called The Thierry Mu­gler Source. (Alien and Aura Mu­gler are also now re­fill­able.) It marked an­other “first” in the fra­grance world. To­day, a bot­tle of An­gel is re­filled ev­ery 10 sec­onds some­where in the galaxy.
