Calling Angelina Jolie the “icon” of its new fragrance for women, Mon Guerlain, French beauty brand, Guerlain Parfumier, announced its partnership with the actress on Monday. Jolie, 41, and the legendary fragrance brand (established in 1828) began their partnership more than a year ago, when she was shooting a film in Cambodia; however, according to the brand’s press release, Jolie’s love for Guerlain began at childhood. She recalls the scent of her mother’s violet-laced Guerlain powder and the wonderful memories it evoked. While elements of the fragrance have yet to be released, master perfumer, Thierry Wasser, said he drew inspiration for the scent from “notes of a woman,” meaning “the choices, emotions, and dreams that embody modern femininity.” Jolie, a very modern business woman and true philanthropist, is donating her entire salary from the collaboration to one of her charities. Mon Guerlain will be released in March 2017.

The effort, helmed by four national co-chairs and a national coordinating committee, signified a mission to “stand together in solidarity with our partners and children for the protection of our rights, our safety, our health, and our families – recognizing that our vibrant and diverse communities are the strength of our country.” Hollywood, of course, stood up with A-List celebrities such as (clockwise from top) Amy Schumer, Madonna, Julia Roberts, Katy Perry, and numerous others, joined the cause.
