1. The photo shoot took place in September 2016, before she filed for divorce from Brad Pitt.

The campaign was set in Provence, France, and took place the same month news broke that the 41-year-old actress was separating from the Allied star.

"We could not have dreamt of a more perfect, more authentic setting for 'Notes of a Woman,' invested with the magical light," the fragrance brand explained. "'Notes of a Woman' re-imagines the story of the creation of the fragrance. For the first time, Guerlain sought to pay tribute to the profession that has built its fame since 1828 by putting the perfumer in the spotlight in an advertising creation."

2. All of the money from the campaign is going to charity.

According to the brand, Jolie has donated her entire salary from Mon Guerlain to charity.

3. It was inspired by Jolie's mother, Marcheline Bertrand.

Like Jolie, her mother also loved the iris and violent scents of a Guerlain powder. In fact, it was one of her most treasured possessions. According to the new fragrance's press release, "Angelina recalls its association with quality, elegance and femininity."

"Fragrance is the most intense form of memory," the company added. "In its own way, it is invisible clothing, a game between that which hides and that which unveils."

4. The male model featured in the video is supposed to represent fifth Guerlain perfumer Thierry Wasser.

"I am always filled with an imperious thirst for distant lands, the desire to go ever farther, in search of new scents," the perfumer explains in the fragrance's official press release.

5. Jolie was officially introduced to Guerlain in Cambodia.

The perfume company's team first met Jolie in Cambodia, where she was directing her fourth feature film, First They Killed My Father, about the nation's genocide through the eyes of a child.
