Angelina Jolie’s fragrance campaign for Guerlain is as expected – stunning. The 41-year-old is the face of the beauty brand's new fragrance Mon Guerlain, and also stars in a commercial for the scent, called "Notes of a Woman".
The short clip shows the mother-of-six wearing an array of chic clothing including black and white silk pajamas and an off-the-shoulder sun dress as she strolls around a lavish house in France, practicing her lines and getting ready for an event. Angelina's tattoos are on display as she slips into a black lace dress and departs down a spiral staircase after spritzing on the perfume, which she calls her "invisible tattoo".

Guerlain describes the scent – which is said to have been inspired by Angelina - as a "fragrance for women who defy categorisation, who embrace all that life brings and all sides of themselves, who are comfortable in their own skin and whose guiding spirit is to be true to themselves and to live a life of use to others."
It was announced in January that Angelina had been signed up by Guerlain to front their new campaign, and the Mr and Mrs Smith star was thrilled about the collaboration as she had fond memories of the brand. Angelina said she had hopes that it would smell subtly of Guerlain's powder, something her mother used to wear and a scent which reminds her of some of her favourite childhood memories.

News of the collaboration was the first huge career announcement that Angelina made since her split from Brad Pitt in September. The philanthropist has since spoken out about her divorce in an interview with BBC World News while promoting her new film First They Killed My Father. The actress appeared visibly upset when asked about the "incident" and confirmed it had been a "difficult time" for her family: "I don't want to say very much about that, except to say it was a very difficult time and…. And we are a family, and we will always be a family. And we will get through this time and hopefully be a stronger family for it," she said.
