Coming this winter from Thierry Mugler, Dare the Metamorphosis, consisting of a new color cosmetics line called The Art of Metamorphosis and five fragrances under the name Miroir Miroir. According to Joel Palix, president of Thierry Mugler Parfums, “We gave carte blanche to our perfumers to create something unusual and original”.
Three of the five Thierry Mugler Miroir Miroir fragrances are florals:
A Travers Le Miroir / Through the Looking Glass is an aromatic floral by perfumer Alexis Dadier.
Dis-Moi, Miroir / Mirror Image is a “nurturing” floral by perfumer Fabrice Pellegrin.
Miroir des Envies / Mirror of Desires is an “addictive” floral by perfumer Christine Nagel.
The remaining two perfumes include Miroir des Secrets / Mirror of Secrets, “a bittersweet aldehydic” by perfumer Domitille Bertier, and Miroir des Vanités / Mirror of Vanities, “an effervescent woody” scent, also by Alexis Dadier.
The Thierry Mugler Miroir Miroir fragrances will be available in 50 ml Eau de Parfum for €130 each; the packaging features an “Art Deco-inspired rectangular crystal-effect bottle with a metallic cap”. They will launch in December at Sephora in Paris and Saks Fifth Avenue in New York, then will be distributed more widely next spring.

Update: additional fragrance descriptions from Saks Fifth Avenue, where the fragrances are now available at $150 each ~
Through the Looking Glass ~ “The opulent and utterly feminine tuberose, lavish and decadent, flirts with a warm, very masculine, woody accord and aromatic accents of absinthe. Subtle notes of wintergreen make the tuberose flower smells almost metallic.”
Mirror Image ~ “A lavish, nurturing floral fragrance melding Lily, Orange Blossom, and nurturing milky notes for extreme sophistication.”
Mirror of Desires ~ “Provocative notes of warm, morning toast and sun-drenched skin become tasty partners with a sumptuous jasmine center. A unique overdose of usually minor accords.”
Mirror of Secrets ~ “The masquerade unfolds when, for the first time in a fragrance, a natural aldehyde is used, revealing brilliant accents to the bitter-sweet blend of patchouli and musk.”
Mirror of Vanities (shown) ~ “Bubbly citrus accords enliven and mingle with the warm, subtle bitterness of cinchona bark and vetiver, heightened by the black intensity of licorice.”
