Thierry Mugler is not making wine or cognac (yet) but he is turning perfume into a heir to the great traditions of liqueur-making by borrowing and adapting centuries-old methods of aging. One empirical conundrum was finding the right type of wood to impart desirable notes to the parfum of La Part des Anges, the first scent that was made using this technique. Now, Thierry Mugler is offering Alien and Angel in Liqueur de Parfum...
"Alien Liqueur de Parfum
a secret and extraordinary club within the sophisticated Thierry Mugler
Palace lies the sensual pairing of perfumery and luxury spirits.
Following a method inspired by the traditional maturation process of
rum, the original ALIEN Eau de Parfum is aged in oak wood casks with an
exhilarating and carnal result.
The sensual amber-colored
fragrance radiates warmth and light from its clear faceted glass
bottle, which echoes the effect of pure crystal.
Angel Liqueur de Parfum
Mugler, master of innovation, once again surprises with a seductive
fragrance created from a patented and unique process.
Parfum is transformed like a fine Cognac, maturing in a cherry wood
cask. This sensual elixir--truly a "liqueur de parfum".
The elegant black and silver packaging echoes the refined pairing of haute perfumery with the world of luxury sprits."
Available at Neiman Marcus, $95 and $98 respectively for 1 oz and 1.1 oz.
