My Review of Thierry Mugler Angel
Angel, is not as angelic it sounds, but is a little devil in its own right. Thierry Mugler Angel was the first fragrance from Thierry Mugler, which firmly established the house in the fragrance world. The rich caramel and chocolate in Angel, is the the predecessor for the huge gourmand trend which followed, and is continuing till now.
Angel comprises of the top notes of Melon, coconut, Mandarin orange, Cassia, Jasmine, Bergamot & Cotton Candy, the middle notes of Honey, Apricot, Blackberry, Plum, Orchid, Peach, Jasmine, Lily-of-the valley, red berries, & rose, and the heart notes of Tonka bean, Amber, Patchouli, Vanilla, Musk, Dark Chocolate and caramel.
Angel opens up strong and sharp, with lots of patchouli dripped in honey. The initial blast smells dirty and sweet at the same time. The fruits and florals blend very well with the honey patchouli, to ever stand out on their own. I is a very body chemistry specific scent. On the lucky ones, it shines!! Whereas I have heard of people complaining of it smelling like body odour on few.
The chocolate, caramel and vanilla goodness of Angel is rich and temptingly delicious. Angel is not sugary-sweet, it is more earthy, it has the character of dark chocolate, which makes it bitter sweet and addictive, and also so tempting it makes you want to eat your wrist!! This is like nothing else I have ever smelt, there are so many notes in this one, but everything is blended together so well, that individual notes do not stick out. It took me some time to fall for it, as initially it was too strong for me, but wear it for night outs or in colder weather, and spray with a light hand to truly enjoy the beauty of Angel. This is a compliment fetcher, with total strangers asking me in Metro what that perfume is!!
Angel is strong and with amazing lasting power, a few sprays and it will last the whole day. And whiffs of it would be the first thing to greet you the next day on waking up. I can get whiffs of it days after I wore it from my clothes and beddings. But be careful with this, as a spray too many will soon turn it into a cloying monster, enough to choke anyone in the sniffing range.
The beautiful star shaped flacon is as pretty as the scent.
This comes highly recommended from me, but only after you try it on your skin. This works very different on different people. My sister tried it in the store when she was looking for a new scent, and she quickly rejected it as nothing special, but a few days later when I applied it, she came sniffing into the room asking me what smells so delicious!!!
