Uma Thurman for Givenchy Ange ou Demon Le Secret

Givenchy Ange ou Démon Le Secret will be available in 50 and 100 ml Eau de Parfum. (via, osmoz, with many thanks to Mathieu for the information!)

    Cranberry, green tea and citrus? Sounds….. healthy!
    makes you smell fine and improves your urinary tract health!
    Uma seems to like it….

  2. krokodilgena says:

    Is that just a picture of Uma or is that the ad?

    • Robin says:

      It’s the ad.

      • AlbertCAN says:

        Er…she looks compressed…stature wise imho.

        • krokodilgena says:

          Her proportions looks straaaaaannggee

          I think I remember her doing ads for Louis Vuitton and those were a lot better

          • thenoseknows says:

            Speaking of that…. When is Bernard and Marc going to finally give us that LUXURY Louis Vuitton Fragrance Set (Womens and Mens) that i have been hoping and waiting for???? Somebody needs to get on the ball there!

            Imagine Louis Vuitton for women in a Custom Carrying Case of the Monogram or Damier Check Canvas and the Bottles in Frosted Lalique Crystal with the Louis Logos all over them… what would it smell like….

            Watermelon, Cucumber, Osmanthus, Neroli, Water Hyacinth, Passionflower, Gingerlily, Coriander, Nutmeg, Leather, Heliotrope, Vetiver Haitian, Narcissus…. I imagine these kind of things… :-D

  3. Daisy says:

    I think Uma looks great in that ad! Normally I think she’s kind of ugly….not that I’m a beauty contestant or anything..(.but between Uma and Cameron Diaz, I’m looking better and better!)

  4. Daisy says:

    Oh, btw…my daughter, who is a huge Angels and Demons fan is horribly offended by the idea of a fragrance with this name being light and floral….and I quote, “THAT’S JUST WRONG!”
    she’s still kibbitzing about it in the next room….

    • Robin says:

      I don’t know that AoD sold well (just guessing)…seems curious that they’re bringing out the star power for the flanker & not the original.

      • Daisy says:

        still, the notes are all wrong.

        • Juniper says:

          The original is very Angels and Demons.

          • Juniper says:

            Forgot to add this is the second flanker…the first was Ange ou Demon Tendre…didn’t care for it.

  5. alltheprettythings says:

    Uma looks fab – my husband and I completely disagree on her looks; he thinks she is “oogly” (lol), I think she’s amazing looking.

    Re. the flanker – sheesh! I wear AoD in parfum form once in a great while, and it’s okay, but this sounds terrrrrrrrible.

    • Robin says:

      I think she’s gorgeous too.

  6. Tama says:

    My stepmom got me a giant bottle of AoD a few years ago and I am slowly working my way though it. It’s not bad, and is wearable, but doesn’t have much to really recommend it. Not sure if I need to even try the flanker.

    I think Uma is gorgeous, too. Although that pic seems a bit High Glam for her.

    • Robin says:

      I didn’t much like it, but to be honest can’t remember it very well.

  7. Phyllislechat says:

    I guess this is the “angels” over the “demons” scent. sounds like something I’d be interested in trying out, but so far haven’t found a Givenchy fragrance I like.

    • Robin says:

      I guess, although the original did not strike me as demonic in the least.

  8. flittersniffer says:

    Why are woods always “blond” these days? ; – )

  9. eminere says:

    Uma’s head looks positively massive, as is her left boob. And that dress hemline is riding dangerously skyward…

    • Robin says:

      Really? Her head looks normal to me. You’re sure right about the hemline, or lack thereof.

  10. RosalinaPosh says:

    uma or no umma the first one was way better

    • Robin says:

      I haven’t smelled the flanker so couldn’t say…

  11. Rosabelle says:

    AUD was bland and boring, just something without spirit but with a great name :))) All the flankers are just as boring and useless to me. they are “safe” fragrances , with a marketing focused on names, logos and botles ….Uma is nice but obviously, this fragrance aims to very young girls who until very recently have never stepped in a perfumery . Uma is connected to me to the time she was the face of the Miracle campaigne for Lancome. I don’t know about USA but back around 2000 Miracle was “in” in Europe and Uma was the Miracle face… Miracle was selling very well and all the glossy magazines had Uma posing for the fuchsia Miracle. I remember well the kind of pinkish box and the vendors explaining this is the last fresia scent embodied by Uma Thurman… We are probably living times when people don’t remember what it was like 2 years ago, lest 7,8 or 10 :)) So, I don’t like the original or this specific flanker and I honestly hope they will stop with this Ange ou Demon saga that says nothing to me.

    • Robin says:

      Doubt they’re done yet.

  12. latavra says:

    hello everybody.
    sorry for my English. I hope to write correctly what i want to. So, a few months ago my husband bought for me this perfume. At first I thought it was perfect because of its smell. but unfortunately it lasts max. and max. 30 minutes. Also, I don’t know how can it be so but eau de perfume was written on the box while eau de toilette was written on the button of the perfume glass. is it always so? plz waiting for your reply.

    • Robin says:

      Hmm, no, usually the bottle would also say Eau de Parfum. Perhaps take it back to the store and ask? It does seem odd.

  13. kaylee204 says:

    Who is the designer of the dress uma is wearing?

    • Robin says:

      Don’t know, but it would be pretty odd if it wasn’t Givenchy.

  14. jonr951 says:

    I smelled this today at Macys and I actually really liked it. Its nothing new or groundbreaking but its absolutely delicious. Im loving the cranberry, lemon and green tea combination. Dang! Just another scent to add to my ever growing list. : )

    • Robin says:

      LOL…yeah, you really need to start hating more new releases!

  15. jonr951 says:

    I really do. But I think its a bit to much for just a nice fruity floral so I wont be buyin me a bottle anytime soon. If I find it for half the price on ebay, ill surely get me a bottle. : )

  16. breathesgelatin says:

    I sprayed and tried this today. Honestly, the scent is odd… just odd. But I think I like it! Probably not enough to buy, but I’d wear it in a pinch.

  17. kaylee204 says:

    where can i buy that dress? or something very similar.
