Givenchy has launched its latest edition of the best-selling Ange ou Demon fragrance line – this time its a dark interpretation…

Givenchy has introduced L’Ange Noir, the new “black angel” fragrance that joins the Ange ou Demon line which first launched in 2006. Ange Ou Demon Le Secret was added in 2009.

L’Ange Noir comes out in Autumn 2016, representing irresistible mystery and the ultimate paradox: “Radiant as an angel, elusive as the darkness.” L’Ange Noir, inspired by the style of crime cinema that is film noir, is the seductive potion of a femme fatale, described as elegant, unique, audacious and desirable. First previewed on Duty Free Hunter earlier this year (see story).

The composition is a powdery floriental combination of light and dark notes. It opens with a blend of bergamot, pink pepper and fresh almond. The mild powdery character of pure white iris, one of the noblest of flowers, is mixed with slightly salty black sesame in the heart. The base finishes up with warm tones of tonka bean, ambrette seeds and amber.

The face of the campaign is French actress and model Aymeline Valade. The shape of the bottle is identical to the Ange ou Demon Le Parfum edition from 2015 but is covered with a black sparkling lacquer.

The fragrance is available as a 30, 50 and 75 ml Eau de Parfum.
