Although Angelina Jolie has stayed out of the public eye since news broke of her divorce from Brad Pitt, the actress has been announced as the new face of Guerlain’s latest fragrance, Mon Guerlain.

This partnership is more than just a quick cash grab for the mother of six, when it was revealed that she donated her entire pay check to a charity of her choice.

The star didn’t reveal which one, but as she is a Special Envoy of the UN Refugee Agency and co-founder of the Preventing Sexual Violence Initiative, we are guessing it will be a cause close to her heart.

This deal was first agreed upon when Angie was in Cambodia in December 2015 to direct First They Killed My Father.

Apparently, Angelina had a special connection to Guerlain because she remembered her mother using a powder from the luxury label.

The brand's master perfumer, Thierry Wasser, drew inspiration from the American actress to create a scent that evokes "The choices, emotions, and dreams that embody modern femininity."

While Jacques Guerlain suggested that Angelina’s tumultuous divorce didn’t have a negative impact on their decision to cast the beauty "we create perfumes for the women we admire."
