Thierry Mugler Angel perfumeThierry Mugler A*Men fragrance

French fashion designer and photographer. Mugler started in fashion as a window designer, then established his own brand in 1974. Mugler, who was later remembered as "the daddy of Eighties power dressing", found his fashion business suffering huge losses by the early 2000s; in 2003 the couture line was discontinued by majority-shareholder Clarins.1 Mugler is today best known for his fragrance house, which is likewise owned by Clarins.

Mugler's first fragrance release, the now iconic Angel, was launched in 1992. Subsequent releases include A*Men / Angel Men (1997), Angel Innocent (1998), Thierry Mugler Cologne (2001), B*Men (2004).

The Angel Garden of Stars is a quartet of floral variations on the original Angel fragrance. A trio, Peony Angel, Lily Angel and Violet Angel, debuted in 2005; Rose Angel followed in 2006.
