Mugler Les Exceptions

Fougere, Floral, Chypre, Oriental, Leather, Musk... Les Exceptions Mugler draw together the greatest themes in traditional perfumery and remaster them, exploring new combinations and boldly creating aromatic encounters with a surprise ingredient to bring these outstanding classic blends towards a new destiny full of present pleasures...

Each Eau de Parfum kindles its own intense emotion, its unique sensation. The one that its noble ingredients carry within them, the one its name declares. Straight up, just like the campaign that was produced.

Variations and materials

  • 1

    Wonder Bouquet

    The material:

    A medley of white flowers wrapped in unexpected gustatory notes of orange blossom, sambac jasmine, beeswax and finally shiso leaves.

    Aromatic collision:

    The fresh and candid lily of the valley note messes with overdosed orange blossom absolute, highlighting the emotionally intoxicating sambac jasmine absolute with its sensual, animalistic hints.

    The result : a floral brioche scent with a palette of contrasting white flowers that takes you by surprise.

    Non contractual visual

    The offbeat bakery dimension, over a classical floral structure, comes as a surprise. More than an unexpected quest, bran, with its warm bread accents, is very important to the construction of the fragrance. Jean-Christophe HÉRAULT

    Hot Cologne

    The material:

    A "Cologne" style, full of invigorating freshness. Traditionally, a concentrate of citrus fruits, petitgrain and orange blossom, to energize the senses

    Aromatic collision:

    A heady cocktail of spices (ginger and cardamom) and an overdose of green coffee shake up the Cologne's structure. Its refined notes lend warmth and add texture and bite

    The result: A provocative sillage. A disconcerting signature.

    Non contractual visual

    Eau de Cologne has always been associated with cleanliness, reassuring comfort and sometimes, childhood memories. Eau de Cologne has always been associated with cleanliness, reassuring comfort and sometimes, childhood memories. I wanted to shake up this rather humdrum image by introducing a note of green coffee. This happy mayhem provokes the senses with its lively temperament and sophisticated signature. Jean-Christophe HÉRAULT

    Woodissime

    The material:

    An Oud Wood accord, as precious as it is legendary. A quintessentially fine ingredient imbued with sensuality and mystery.

    Aromatic collision:

    Osmanthus blossom brings floral, fruity notes to freshen and illuminate this overdose of majestic wood.

    The result: a captivating, playful fragrance trail—an animalic and floral woody scent that's intense, yet sparkling. A dual architecture.

    With its combination of woody, spicy and animal facets, ingredients as rich as Oud Wood are a rarity. I've used superb natural raw materials to bring out the facets I like most and create a composition of great character.
    To soften its animalic dimension, I balanced it with Osmanthus blossom, which adds a sophisticated touch of soft suede and succulent fruit reminiscent of apricots or juicy plums Jean-Christophe HÉRAULT

    cuir impertinent

    The material:

    Leather, a classic note in perfume-making, brings to mind Russia and the galloping cavalcades of Siberian horsemen.

    Aromatic collision:

    Star anise, a genuine color explosion that strikes a flash of light through the darkness of tanned leather. Its surging note of green adds lively freshness.

    The result: brazen sensuality, a modern addiction, all the insolence of a leather with an aromatic freshness.

    Non-contractual visuals

    I adore leather notes and how sensually
    they linger in the wake of a fragrance.
    I thought it would be interesting to combine such a powerful base note with a touch of star anise. This novel accord creates a harmony of contrasts. The aromatic aniseed freshness of this spice plays a big role in enhancing certain aspects of the leather. Star anise acts as an agent of green freshness, adding nuances to the dark and sensual depth of the leather. Jean-Christophe HÉRAULT

    fougere furieuse

    The material:

    "Fougere" is the archetype of men's fragrances, traditionally offering the rich aromatic mix of geranium, oakmoss and Tonka bean.

    Aromatic collision:

    Neroli, a true incarnation of feminine purity, brings sensuous floral notes that disrupt the virile character of fougere and interweave with the voluptuously overdosed Tonka bean and amber, totally reinventing the genre...

    The result: an outrageously sensual, highly addictive experience that turns convention on its head.

    It's a resolutely Mugler approach. Playing with the conventions of the genre, hijacking certain elements from menswear and giving them a twist, daring to go over the top—this credo is applied to fragrances. We have heightened the feminine floral facets of the fougere accord and intensified the contrasts. Jean-Christophe HÉRAULT

    chyprissime

    The material:

    Chypre, the most legendary and noble accord of all, came into being in the early 20th century with the alliance of bergamot, oakmoss, cistus labdanum and patchouli.

    Aromatic collision:

    Succulent pear brings a surge of sparkling fruitiness to the patchouli; a vibrant and futuristic elegance.

    The result: After the initial surprise, the sublime harmony is ultra-chic…

    Non-contractual visuals

    A refined fragrance of elegant distinction. I modernized the structure of chypre by fine-tuning its contours more precisely and giving it more color, designing a new shade around this palette to imbue it with unexpected luminosity: the pear blows the cobwebs off this great monument of classic perfumery. Olivier POLGE

    oriental express

    The material:

    Precious oriental fragrances, rich in balm, resin, vanilla and powdery effects, whose potent sensuality becomes an addiction.

    Aromatic collision:

    A crisp heart note of zestful carrot invigorates the legendary sandalwood-vanilla accord, giving it more substance, sumptuousness, and amazing liveliness.

    The result: an unusual and profoundly contemporary oriental redolence.

    Putting on Oriental Express is like
    sliding into a fur, for me...
    I decided to exalt the sandalwood-vanilla accord by setting it against carrot and basil, with its green aromatic note. This startling contrast brings alive both women's and men's oriental fragrances, with its totally unexpected character. Olivier POLGE

    over the musk

    The material:

    Modern musk, less animal and heady than in the past, with more sweet and transparent notes.

    Aromatic collision:

    Ambrette seeds from hibiscus transform the musk, giving it back its original animality to create a natural wildness and an uncompromising sensuality.

    The result: a voluptuous overdose.

    Sometimes simplicity reveals
    a wealth of nuances.
    Over The Musk explores the light side of sensuality. From a soft and white cashmere to one that's velvety and powdery, the story is all about irresistible sex appeal. Jean-Christophe HÉRAULT

    supra floral

    The material:

    Hyacinth, a bold and unique flower that symbolizes sophisticated femininity.

    Aromatic collision:

    Incense, an age-old ingredient of magical potency, jars the delicacy and crispness of the hyacinth with its fiery temperament.

    The result: an absolutely explosive sensuality. A return to the future of floral fragrance.

    Non-contractual visuals

    A fragrance of seduction and temptation When I combined notes of incense and amber, I was imagining a hyacinth full of audacity, far removed from the flower's figurative, romantic image. Supra Floral is a fragrance of seduction for women—and of temptation for men. Olivier POLGE

The Bottle

Les Exceptions Mugler flaunt their distinction. Transparently.

Their universal simplicity is reflected in the unique and luxurious bottle. Subtly faceted and cinched with a metal band, the Art Deco-inspired jewel-bottle showcases the architectural elegance that is the hallmark of the House of Mugler.

The Fragrance Designers

Jean-Christophe-Herault

In the scented wake of Les Exceptions Mugler stand their two fragrance-designers:

The Maison Mugler engaged two talented perfumers
in turn to create its Exceptions collection: Olivier Polge composed the first five editions (Chyprissime, Supra Floral, Fougere Furieuse, Over The Musk, Oriental Express) before handing over the baton to Jean-Christophe Hérault, who has created Cuir Impertinent and Woodissime since he took over as perfumer for the line.


Jean-Christophe Hérault grew up in the world of scents, by vocation. He loves to tell powerful aromatic tales and is naturally drawn to potent and evocative raw materials. He dreams of unexplored territories, where he can stir up vivid emotions and, most importantly, leave no one indifferent.
