The brand Mugler stands for a daring and extravagant style of fragrances, therefore it might be surprising that their latest release is a collection of colognes. But in fact, Thierry Mugler already created a cologne in 2001, next to the wider known and challenging signature fragrances Angel and Alien. It is said that Mugler wanted to recreate the scent of a soap he remembered from his childhood with this cologne. Now, 18 years later, the cologne series grows. The shape of the colourful bottles strongly resembles the very first Mugler cologne, but with a modern approach.

The new cologne collection features five unisex fragrances inspired by thrilling sensations and the use of unusual ingredients. Mugler calls them anti-fragrances because they are meant to be more than a fragrance, they are a manifesto of freedom, sensuality, and subversion. He says there is no race, no gender, no age, and no label.

The special thing about the colognes is that they invite you to mix and blend them to suit your mood at any moment and discover endless possibilities while having fun. The colognes are more casual than the other Mugler fragrances and might have a wider appeal since they lack the arbitrary nature of Alien or Angel and are instead pleasant, fresh and easygoing. A series of light summer scents that come in striking rainbow colours and with bold statements.


Take Me Out (orange)

The Notes
ORANGE BLOSSOM – SHISO LEAF –  SECRET "P" NOTE

How it smells
This is the warmest cologne of the series. It comes with a dash of minty shiso and is dominated by orange blossom. It's floral, fresh, bright and energetic and therefor might be the answer to your pleas for somebody to show up and take you out. 



Fly Away (yellow)


The Notes

YELLOW GRAPEFRUIT – HEMP ACCORD –  SECRET "C" NOTE


How it smells
An aromatic and more masculine cologne with herbal notes that follow a punch of citrus accords. It's meant to heighten the senses to a high effervescence and let you feel each moment as in a waking dream.



Come Together (green)

The Notes
GREEN PETITGRAIN – WHITE MUSK –  SECRET "S" NOTE

How it smells
This cologne is not new, but Mugler's original from 2001 that received a new name and bottle to fit into the new series of colognes. If you are familiar with the cult classic don't worry, it's unchanged and the centerpiece of the new collection. Mugler describes it as the scent of skin against skin, sounds like a true sensation, right?



Love you all (blue)

The Notes
WHITE AMBER – BLUE LICORICE–  SECRET "E" NOTE

How it smells
The blue cologne is warm and fresh and at the same time quite syrupy. All in all, it's a mixture of so many things, it's hard to pinpoint something specific, but that's exactly what makes it intriguing. 



Run Free (purple)

The Notes
PURPLE GINGER – AKIGALA WOOD –  SECRET "D" NOTE

How it smells
This woody cologne gives you an electrifying sensation with its spicy ginger scent. The akigala wood is powdery as a lovely contrast to the zinginess of the ginger. Just like a fast run through a beautiful forest.

Let's Travel, Discover Something New



I love traveling because it is one of the best ways to open the mind and find new inspiration. The memories of my journeys are precious and dear because they stay vivid long after arriving back home. Without traveling, I wouldn't be the person who I am, it shaped me and changed the way I think. It keeps my curiosity to learn more about this world and its people burning in my heart. Every journey is a challenge, revealing new sides of myself and making me appreciate life and a breeze of pure and overwhelming freedom.

When you leave the door to go on a journey, it's an opportunity to explore unknown places and leave your comfort zone while you encounter the unexpected far from your to-do lists. Traveling means saying goodbye to the daily routine and exchange it for an adventure. It can be a rather tame adventure or something more daring, but it's always the opposite of monotony. It's exciting to dive into new cultures, eat different food and be surrounded by an unknown language. Whenever I am on a journey I feel highly aware that there is more out there than my small microcosmos.

In everyday life it's so easy to get lost in a sea of pettinesses: Why is the bus not on time? Why is my hairdresser on holidays when I want to book an appointment? Why is the wi-fi so slow? Do you know what I mean? Sometimes a journey helps to realize all of those things are not that important at all, especially when we encounter people who have to deal with completely different things. There are as many ways to live a life as places on this planet and it's a gift to discover a few during a lifetime.

So let's pack our suitcase and off we go! I'm ready with my new cute luggage set from Lipault, of course in my favourite colour. From now on people can guess what bag is mine I guess.

Where does your next journey go?

Dear Mama, You Are My Sunshine

In collab with Swarovski and Kuoni I present this year's Swarovski Mother's Day collection. The theme of the collection is "You are my sunshine" and I express the bond I have to my mum with a letter to her.



Dear Mama,

Among all the important people in my life, you claim a special place. I want to thank you for being so bold and deciding to bring me into this world. I can barely imagine what it means to say yes to filling the universe with a new life. You used to call me your little swan, almost like you always knew that this strange kid would turn out well and become a woman that makes you proud.

I share a lot of things with dear people – moments, stories, experiences, laughter and tears. But you are the only person who shared her body with me and this is truly remarkable and connects us like no other. I imagine sometimes it must have been difficult for you to see this daughter who was not like you in a thousand ways and you might have wondered why I was the way I am. You always supported me in many ways and let me make my own experiences. When they turned out to be wrong decisions, you were there until I was ready for new adventures.

One of the most important things I learned from you is to go my own way no matter what people think. I have thousands of memories that connect us, let me pick one especially dear: I am so grateful that we traveled a lot together as soon as I could walk, collected memories and spent the most beautiful hours on the Nile when I was a kid.

This time taught me to be curious, open-minded and to embrace different cultures and views. We discovered the pyramids, spent weeks sunbathing at the Red Sea, went to places your teenage daughter wanted to see because she read about them in magazines. You trusted me when I tried to explain the taxi driver in Cairo that I wanted to go to an island in Cairo he never heard of, you sat next to me on a long train journey through the whole country and you made the ship crew cook vegetable soup for me when I was sick.

You never learned a foreign language, but you communicated with anybody no matter where in the world. Your smile won them over and it usually took a few minutes until our table in the tea house was filled with laughter and jokes. Sometimes we all didn't know what we were laughing about and it didn't matter. All that mattered was that you were successful in making people burst out in laughter and fill their life with sunshine.

I choose this memory for today's post because the sparkling jewellery reminds me of the warm Egyptian sun we enjoyed together. The pieces sparkle in the light like a pharaoh treasure, while they are delicate and elegant. Mama, I hope reading this makes you smile, happy Mother's Day!

P.S: I am sorry I put your flowers on my head, but know you understand my eccentricity. I promise I'll get you more beautiful ones. ;-)
