Ange ou Démon was introduced by Givenchy in 2006, as an oriental floral feminine fragrance, developed by perfumers Jean-Pierre Bethouart and Olivier Cresp. As implied by the name (French for “Angel of Devil”) this fragrance has a dual nature, built around the contrast that involves the light and darkness. This disparity between the two opposites is evoked both by the fragrance’s image and the associated marketing campaign, the latter featuring a mysterious and fascinating woman, capable of tempting with her angelic/devil look.
The ingredients employed for creating this scent were combined in order to accentuate its mystery aura. The opening in Ange ou Démon is a blend of thyme, Calabrian mandarin orange and the most precious spice, saffron. Later, in approximately 30 minutes, the heart develops a floral combination of Ylang-ylang, orchid and lily, which eventually dries down to a woody base, composed of oakmoss, palisander wood, oak wood, vanilla and Tonka bean. As described on the official website, Ange ou Démon is “more than a perfume, the embodiment of the eternal mystery of seduction”.
On the image level, the effect of contrasts is visible on the bottle and packaging box. The flask was designed by Serge Mansau in a shape of a diamond that offers a fresh representation to a chandelier’s pendant. The chromatic employed is transparent at the bottom and continues to turn into dark as it reaches the upper part, for highlighting the mysterious facet of the fragrance. Overall, Ange ou Démon is a scent for a young woman, who adores playing with her image.
