Angelina Jolie’s new ad for Mon Guerlain’s Intense perfume is amazeballs

In 2017, we got to see the first commercial for Angelina Jolie’s advertising contract with Mon Guerlain. I loved that ad, which was apparently filmed in France, at the Jolie-Pitt’s Chateau Miraval. The “story” of that commercial was that Angelina is a beautiful woman and a hot perfumer thinks that she’s so beautiful, he needs to mix up a special perfume for her. When he creates the Mon Guerlain perfume, Jolie is so happy, she twirls. That’s it, that’s the story. Well, I think they’re moving away from even trying to tell a story. Gerlain has a new fragrance – Mon Guerlain Intense – and Angelina is in the ad. The story is “beauty shots of Angelina Jolie in Cambodia.”

I’m feeling very warm, I don’t know about you. This was directed by Oscar-winning cinematographer/director of photography Emmanuel Lubezki, who is a frequent collaborator with Alfonso Cuaron and Alejandro G. Iñárritu. Angelina literally brought him to her property in Cambodia, stuck on some false eyelashes and was like “take some beauty shots of me.” And he did it, because why not. I actually love this commercial. She’s so sexy and relaxed – I wish she would find someone nice who would appreciate her and treat her well. Someone like Keanu Reeves. WILD THANG.

PS… Her skin looks amazing, right? I wish she still had a skincare contract (she used to rep Shiseido).

    She really is a stunning woman. That is all.

      I’m not an Angie fan (and no, can’t *stand* Pitt), but damn, that is an insane commercial! She looks amazing!! She truly is so gorgeous!!! I’d kill to know her skin care regime! 😄 I know a lot is genetic, but DAMN!

    • petee says:

      You can see glimpses of her old self from years ago.My God she was drop dead gorgeous in Mr. And Mrs. Smith,Alexander, and even as a cartoon in Beowulf.It seems toward Wanted and Changeling she was so thin it took a toll on her look’s.She was even beautiful pregnant .No body shaming here but it seems she look’s at her best with some extra weight.

      • Mo says:

        I remember a pre-Botox quote from Catherine Deneuve that at a certain point a woman has to choose between her ass and her face. I think women think Botox, etc. means they no longer have to make the choice, but it’s not true. So many older women would look so much better with 5-10 more pounds.

      • Eve says:

        I thought it was Kathleen Turner who said it but it was Catherine Deneuve as you say.

    • DiegoInSF says:

      Her face is exquisite! Also, she wrote an opinion piece for Time about the crisis at the border. Hopefully there is a story for this tomorrow!

    • pria says:

      Yea I think that adjective was invented for her (stunning) lol

      Sidenote: The song ‘Wild Thing,’ was written by her uncle. A Voight brother. Family is super smart and talented. While John is a bit on the insane infuriating side, can’t dispute his acting chops.

  2. Al says:

    I’m pretty sure the story is that you, the viewer, is making love with Angelina Jolie. Lucky viewer!

    • minx says:

      This makes me want to go right out and buy that perfume. And I don’t even wear perfume.

      • Ennie says:

        I bought the mon guerlain last de ember and I am very happy with it. I don’t like very strong perfumes, and I think this is a ver delicate fragance.

  3. Miss V says:

    I mean, come on. That face is literal perfection.

  4. AmyB says:

    She is my forever female crush.

    That is all – she is absolute perfection.

  5. Ai says:

    That is a very lovely ad! She is looking fabulous.

  6. Sarah says:


  7. Valiantly Varnished says:

    She is IMO – the most beautiful woman in the world. SO stunning.

    • AmyB says:

      She honestly is. And say what you will about all the drama between her and Pitt, she became a huge humanitarian and did so much good with her all her fame, in my opinion, as opposed to so many other celebrities. To me, that makes her even more gorgeous.

    • Mireille says:

      Your comment reminds me of a poll that was taken a couple of years back when people were queried about Angie’s most beautiful feature (I think it was some poll done by E! Entertainment network). I expected to see the top answer for the poll to be something related to her face (bone structure, eyes, cheeks, lips, etc.). And I was wrong. The majority of the people polled thought her “heart” was her most beautiful feature. I thought that was lovely:).

  8. Hey says:

    That face. And when she wants to be playful and seductive, she has no competitors!

  9. Teri says:

    I’m in love!

  10. B n A fan says:

    BEAUTIFUL!! The end.

  11. Digital Unicorn says:

    Beautifully shot ad and she is stunning. What i like most about it though is that she’s showing off all her tattoo’s in their glory – they haven’t covered them up.

  12. Mireille says:

    Saw Angie in person once. Sweetest personality. And photos don’t do this woman justice. She’s a work of art in person.

    • Wasabi says:

      Right? You see her photographs and she looks amazing. But then you see her face in movement and it’s just… HOW CAN BE SOMEONE SO PERFECT??? H. O. W?

  13. Thena says:

    Wonderful Ad. Very sensual.

    And what’s amazing about this Ad is to know Jolie and Guerlain will be partners in preserving bees in Cambodia. Cool!

  14. Sierra says:

    Today’s face that can launch a 1000 ships.

    I am so digging the Keanu & Angie thing, hope it really happens. They will be dynamite together.

    • Debbydoo says:

      As much as I adore Keanu, I wouldn’t be displeased at all to see them together. I could sit and gaze at them both.

      Shame the perfume honks like cat pee though :(

      • Sierra says:

        Come on gossip God, make Keanu + Angie a reality.

        I like the original perfume that came out last year. I hate strong smells but this one is subtle enough for me.

  15. Hmmm says:

    Yes, I hope she’s found someone to appreciate her. She’s looking sexier than ever.

  16. Frida_K says:

    This brought joy to my heart on what has been a harrowing 24 hours starting in Texas and moving on to Ohio.

    Watching this inspires my own individual innate fabulousness; this reminds me to access it and celebrate it. It’s a call to every woman to be a wild thing, whatever that means to each one of us.

    She’s so beautiful. I love her tattoos, I love her attitude, I love her good works.

    Thank you for this today, Angelina Jolie.

  17. ad says:

    Wow, she is just stunningly beautiful! Inside & out!

  18. Alexandria says:

    I love you so much!

  19. TheOriginalMia says:

    Wow! The sexiness is off the charts. She looks amazing. I’m ready to buy that perfume!

  20. Dbee says:

    Her parents were psychic; She is Jolie. 😍😍

  21. Trish-a says:

    No doubt a beauty. But am I crazy? Did she always have bright blue eyes? I thought they were green. Too lazy to look.,,,

    • Michelle says:

      They are bluish green, they’ve clearly changed her eye colour & made them more blue.

    • lucy2 says:

      I noticed that too! They definitely altered them, that is not her eye color (it’s green like mine).
      She does look pretty in the ad though.

  22. Your cousin Vinny says:

    Angie is not by any stretch of the imagination “older” but can I just say it’s so lovely to see a middle-ish aged woman and mother as the sexy ingenue instead of some teenager. Her skin and smile are breath-taking, also love the tatoos!

  23. mosi says:

    well, I’ll be sitting here alone thinking this add is so generic and looks like a mashup from Pirelli calendar and calzedonia.

  24. MellyMel says:

    Absolutely gorgeous…she really is one of the most beautiful women. And yes, her skin is so fantastic!

  25. Angel says:

    Her skin looks amazing because it’s Photoshop. Also, her eyes aren’t blue like that; they tend toward green or hazel.

    She is a beautiful woman and I like the ad for the most part – except for them changing her eye color. Bright blue eyes aren’t hers.

    Because they couldn’t keep a gorgeous woman looking like herself, I’ll pass on the fragrance.

    • Sierra says:

      How can you photoshop a video and the person is in motion?

      Plus Angelina has this clear and glowing skin normally as well. Just look at pictures from when she does day to day things.

      • Ladyhands says:

        This has been a thing for years. I wish I could remember the article about how movies can basically do an overlay on the actor from when he or she was younger. It is very possible.

      • Americano says:

        She is very beautiful but it is true that you can alter videos. My sister is in vfx industry and this kind of stuff is pretty common in films.

      • AppleTartin says:

        it’s filters and touch ups, they made her look 10 years younger and altered her eye color/skin. Yes she is gorgeous but that is very enhanced.

      • BeanieBean says:

        Sierra: did you see The Irishman video the other day? Scorsese’s new movie with DeNiro, Pesci, Pacino? They’ve done this in places in that movie–made all three men look like their younger selves.

      • ElleKaye says:

        @ Sierra,

        You can tell this is shot in soft focus to give it a dream-like quality. Video can also be edited afterward with various tools. Jolie has a mole over her right eyebrow that is missing here. No doubt she is beautiful, but all beauty is subject to correction in today’s society, whether it is warranted or not.

      • Tia says:

        Will Smith’s latest film has him playing a character his own age and one 20 / 30 years younger with him having been digitally altered for the entire movie. Compared to that, smoothing a few blemishes must be easy.

    • Ennie says:

      She has great skin to begin with as seen in regular pics. I read that someone mentioned the best and worst celeb skins for HD and Jolie’s was mentioned as one of the best.

  26. cee says:

    Gorgeous. She is so beautiful and seems so confident in who she is. Love her.

  27. Trish-a says:

    YeH when you have to photo shop AJ. We have no chance! Her real eye color is beautiful! Sorry this ad is bs.

  28. M.A.F says:

    Beautiful ad but I think the song is the wrong choice.

    • Boxy Lady says:

      The song choice is kind of perfect actually. The songwriter goes by Chip Taylor but his real name is James Voight. He’s Angelina’s paternal uncle.

  29. Eve says:

    Stunning! Breathtakingly gorgeous. Simply the most beautiful face on the planet.

    And when she bites her bottom lip…my goodness, woman! Have pity on me.

  30. Eve says:


    “I’m feeling very warm, I don’t know about you.”

    It happens to me, too. It’s our human nature: we’re attracted to beauty. And Jolie’s face is beauty personified.

  31. Sidewithkids says:

    I saw Angie in person twice and she is a very beautiful woman. That’s why I tell people the photos and vids don’t do her justice. But the best feature on her (besides her face of course) when I saw her was her teeth. Lol. Shining, straight and white.

  32. Sarah says:

    I loved this commercial. They have embraced the traditional and the present. Guerlain has, by partnering with Angie, stepped a little to the outré, and indicating that from the first moment by the choice of music: Wild thing, which used to be Angie’s image. I felt the commercial and campaign is to embrace the traditional and move into the modern. My mother used to say that Guerlain was an excellent parfumier, and she ought to know, she had exquisite taste. Mom used to wear Guerlain (among other perfumes). I love that Angie is honoring her mother, and doing good for a country she loves: Cambodia. Yea for honoring mothers. And I think the commercial is genius.

  33. Julia says:

    I wonder how Brad felt when he saw that.

    • Freddie says:

      I guess Brad Pitt,he’s too busy looking into Margot Robbie’s blue eyes to even notice this. After all Brad never looks back and certainly not looking back at Angelina Jolie anymore.

      • TI says:

        He’s looked several times . There is no way in hell a man that lived with this woman 12 yrs and had very lust filled moments with her probably in this same place don’t reminisce about that. He is a man and normal and imho still lives Jolie. And Margot is beautiful but she ain’t Angie. Why do you think he was looking a mess when she left?

      • entine says:

        thing is Brad was not the one who left the relationship. After all that, yes, he would not go back, but after their intense relationship nowthey have to be there for their children. I think he is ok with her doing well,everything is good for their children if they both do well and participate.

  34. Juanie says:

    When Angie is in the sheet, walking away in that hall & her hair is wrapped up in a twist bun & she throws that elegant come hither look over her shoulder? Oh. My. God. What a woman. Love to see her all sensual. She models well.

  35. TI says:

    The only thing they changed is her eye color. Maybe she has in contacts, who knows. Her mole on her face is still there so I don’t get the accusation she is enhanced. Lol
    Yes I love the video and do see glimpses of old self. Idk what was going on with her weight at those times when she was with Brad, who knows. My guess is stress and headache, bless her heart now. We need that old Angie back.

    • Freddie says:

      @TI.. You forget Brad is no longer a hot mess now, he’s clearly cleaned up his act, thanks to Angelina and now ready for a fresh start and a happier start, as he would not need to self medicate himself and drink anymore, nor check out on kids anymore.Now that he’s a new man. He might have been a hot mess in 2016 after she took the kids, but not since then, he’s never looked so happier, younger and fitter and even his career is going strong with possible Oscar wins.

  36. Cara says:

    She is stunning and always has been. Plus, she is just the queen of cool IMO.

  37. Reece says:

    BEAUTIFUL!What more is there to say!?!

    Also I want the dress or something similar. It looks super cute and summery.

  38. IT says:

    @Freddie It’s not about Brad. I understand what you are saying but Angelina had gone through a lot more with the death of her mom, breast reconstruction, ovaries removed, media bashing and blame for everything under the sun so the two don’t compare. I’m happy for her career after the hit pieces that were written about her when she filed for divorce from Pitt. She was accused of lying about child abuse and his drug use and she didn’t come out and say this is the reason she left.
    He admitted most of the stuff himself but its just a know fact people want to bring her down thats why her fans celebrate with her

  39. I'm With The Band says:

    Oof, stunning, as always. Is it weird that I love that she doesn’t have instabrows? Just naturally beautiful.

  40. Cee says:

    She looks amazing. I think this is a sign that she is feeling great and sexy and ready to move on . Her life is great right now. The kids are good. Her house is good. Her career is good, she has some great projects . Proud of how she weathered the storm.

    • TRuthhurts says:

      Correct. Her new Elle article exudes the same intensity. I don’t know how but it seems the chaos, criticism and vilifying made her stronger. I had a male co worker tell me back in 2005 that she wasn’t real, she was an alien. No woman can be what she is. I sometimes think that because of her strength and resilience. Lol She is freakin gorgeous and is getting back to her old self yet has grown immensely mentally.

  41. Rosewater says:

    Angie looks great and the ad is pretty cool but absolutely no perfume ad can ever outdo the ones Ridley Scott did for Chanel back in the late 1970s /early 1980s with Vangelis’ music. I think it was called “Swimming Pool”.
    Those ads really captured a certain moment in time and aesthetic – a real work of art.

  42. Burdzeye View says:

    The AD’s not setting the heather alight but she is flawless in it.

  43. Harryg says:

    Sorry – I think this ad is just so basic. Slow mo rolling in the sheets, slow mo this and that, boring. It’s boring!

  44. ad says:

    The Ad is short & inviting to make you notice it, it served its purpose! Simply the best!

  45. Alice says:

    Thank you.
