London: Actress Eva Mendes has replaced Naomi Watts as the face of Thierry Mugler`s Angel fragrance.

A statement from the company has revealed the 36-year-old actress was chosen because they hope to play up the fragrance`s "sultry" qualities, reports a website.

"While Naomi Watts` ethereal beauty embodied the angelic aspect of the fragrance, Thierry Mugler chose to reignite the enticing and explosive dimensions of the fragrance with the sultry Mendes, though her obviously flawless physical beauty is in perfect harmony with the fragrance," said a statement.

Mendes was previously the face of Calvin Klein`s Secret Obsession perfume, and now she will begin appearing in advertisements for Thierry Mugler from September.
