Complex Made Simple

A*Men Pure Shot

Thierry Mugler has launched his first fragrance for men – A*Men – that is embodied by Oscar Pistorius, chosen for the unique journey and achievements he represents.

Oscar Pistorius’s legs were amputated at the age of 11 months because of a birth defect. He learned to walk with artificial limbs, later replaced by carbon-fiber ‘blades’, but went on to win several medals at the 2004 Athens Paralympic Games, becoming the triple world record holder and triple paralympic champion for the 100, 200 and 400 meter dashes.

His fight to run with able-bodied athletes took him to the semi-finals for the 100 meter dash in Korea’s World Championship and won him the opportunity to take part in the 2012 Olympic Games in London.

Created by Jacques Huclier for Givaudan, A*Men Pure Shot is a woody, fresh and spicy fragrance.
