~Angel Perfuming Body Lotion~
Angel is a popular fragrance range offered by Thierry Mugler. This range includes a perfume and a number of complimenting body products but my views are based on the 'perfuming body lotion'.
This body lotion can be worn alone or alongside the other Angel products for a more intense, longer lasting fragrance on the skin. As with the other Thierry Mugler body lotions, this lotion is promised to be lightweight and packed full of skin nourishing ingredients. Skin should be left feeling soft, smooth and deeply hydrated. The main selling point though is the fragrance which follows the same route as the Angel perfume with notes of chocolate, caramel, patchouli,honey and vanilla.
The full size bottle which houses this body lotion as absolutely gorgeous. It is a tall bottle which is shaped a bit like a jagged gem stone and is a gorgeous blue colour. My body lotion came from a gift set and isn't quite as fancy. My body lotion is presented in a blue tube with a silver lid and looks really pretty as there is a slight irridescent shine to the tube. The packaging can be recycled and this body lotion has a 12month shelf life from first use.

My love of perfumed body lotions is matched well to my love of the Thierry Mugler brand. I admit that it took a while for the Angel fragrance to grow on me but I now love it. My collection of Angel products has grown over the last few years and I was pleased to add the body lotion to my collection after purchasing it as part of a gift set in the post Christmas sales. My experience will discuss wearing this alone and also alongside the perfume.
This lotion is absolutely lush! The lotion itself is a baby blue colour and has a light and creamy appearance. The consistency is just right for a lotion - not too runny but not overly thick and I find that it spreads effortlessly and smoothly across my skin. The lotion leaves a cool and soothing trace on my skin and not much is needed to leave my skin feeling hydrated. The lotion simply melts into my skin with very little effort on my part and no residue is evident after it has been fully absorbed. I have been impressed by how well this body lotion penetrates the layers of my skin and leaves it moisturised and silky smooth for most of the day yet at the same time, it is beautifully lightweight. I like to apply it to my arms and around my chest area. My arms are bumpy and dry but this lotion hydrates the dry patches and leaves them smooth to the touch.
Angel is definitely a fragrance that you need to really like to appreciate it. It won't appear or suit everyone but it has grown on me and I adore it as it smells special and foody! Thierry Mugler have captured the Angel fragrance perfectly well in this body lotion and I love wearing it as it smells amazing and expensive! The main notes that come through are the chocolate and the vanilla with the patchouli being noticeable too. At first, the chocolate appears quite bitter but is soon tamed with creamy vanilla. The other notes sort of hang in the background and I catch random whiffs of them as the fragrance sits on my skin. Overall, I find the fragrance to be foody and very sweet but it is a grown-up sort of sweetness that is rich, sexy and fairly strong on my skin. The fragrance is long lasting. Wearing this alone on my skin, it is noticeable for a good 6 or 7 hours which I find to be excellent. I smell good enough to eat when wearing this.
I do personally find this body lotion to offer enough fragrance to be worn alone. It doesn't mix with with other perfumes except Angel. I am happy to wear the body lotion through the day on its own but if going out in the evening, I enhance it with the perfume. The lotion and perfume work in unison with each other and a strong fragrance is noticeable on my skin all night and often the next morning too. Angel is such a unique scent in my opinion. I often find myself asking complete strangers if they are wearing Angel and they are surprised that my nose can detect it so easily! It is perfect for everyday use or for special occasions in my opinion.
This body lotion is of a high quality. It leaves my skin feeling amazingly soft and smooth as well as smelling absolutely gorgeous. It is expensive but it is worth the high cost in my opinion. I would personally recommend the gift set as you get to try out both the perfume and the body lotion then. I cannot really fault it. I always get compliments on how gorgeous I smell when wearing the body lotion alone. My tube is lasting very well and it is definitely one of my favourites.
Thanks for reading :)
