Angelina Jolie‘s latest project is inspired by her late mother, Marcheline Bertrand.
As you may know, the actress and humanitarian — who passed away back in 2007 after a long battle with cancer — raised Angelina and her brother, James Haven, on her own in Los Angeles after leaving their father, husband Jon Voight.
While promoting her new fragrance with Guerlain, the 41-year-old opened up about growing up under her mother’s care and the importance of this particular partnership.
Miz Jolie told Hello mag:
“It was a brand my mother loved, and that I knew from my childhood. It spoke to her, as it does to me, of beauty, history and quality. It’s the oldest perfume house in the world, from France, a country I love and feel to connected to and spend time in. As I talked to Guerlain about the artistry they devote to the making of the perfume and the way they work in communities, sourcing their ingredients, the pieces came together and I felt we were a match.”
“My mother was a very natural woman. She never spoiled herself, never wore make-up, and wore modest jewellery, but she always had a few special items for when she wanted to feel like a lady. One of those special items ├óΓé¼ΓÇ£ and I remember it because it seemed so elegant ├óΓé¼ΓÇ£ was her Guerlain powder (Ladies in All Climates). I think it speaks of all women having those few special things that make them feel feminine. And so when I was a little girl, I would associate Guerlain with that.”
And it looks like this campaign represents all of those qualities very beautifully!
