Thierry Mugler Angel Eau de Parfum
Advantages: Floral musky scent, little goes a long way
Disadvantages: Slightly pricey but worth it
Now as you can probably tell by now I'm not one for "signature scents" and tend to chop and change my perfume depending on the day and I have a fair collection and I am very lucky to own so many! I got given the Thierry Mugler Angel perfume for my birthday a couple of years back (bless my dad I had originally asked for "Alien" but he got a bit confused!) and I was certainly not disappointed even though it wasn't the one I thought I would be getting!
I got the 50ml bottle and it also comes in 25ml, a hand cream, shower gel, body lotion and a dusting powder. It also comes in 50ml and 25ml refillable bottles which are slightly different shaped from the standard non refillable bottles. Mine is the non refillable one and it comes in a light blue cardboard box with solid black edges and silver and black writing. The bottle itself is beautiful and is of a light blue clear glass in a solid 3D star shape, unlike other perfumes as this is a 3D shape you can't stand it on your dressing table but it looks lovely laying down next to other perfumes and makeup. The top point of the star is silver metal and the atomizer is a little silver push button. Apparently it took 2 years to design this bottle and I can see why!
The perfume ranges anywhere from £45 to £68 for a 50ml bottle and as with anything it is worth shopping around. Although with this perfume I probably wouldn't suggest buying as a gift and its definitely one to try before you buy as it smells very different on different skins and its very much a love or a hate.
This perfume is quite old by some standards and was launched in 1992. It has notes of vanilla, sandalwood and patchouli. With notes of bergamot, honey, dewberry, caramel, chocolate and red berries. Now having read this after actually using the perfume for quite some time it does actually sound like quite a strange mixture of fragrances but in my opinion I really think they work well together.
First spraying this it does smell very musky and heavy and almost slightly overpowering at first but after a few minutes it tones down. After a good few hours wear it becomes alot lighter and it starts to smell more floral scented but still with a musky edge. It definitely smells quite oriental floral and slightly woody. I have also read that it also has fruity notes of citrus, melons, peaches and plums which you can smell once it has been on for a few hours, you may not be able to pinpoint exactly (I know I certainly can't) but it does add something to the floral tones. A few squirts of this goes a long way and I have never felt the need to re-apply. I would say its a more grown up fragrance and I'm not entirely sure if it would appeal to young girls even if the bottle would definitely attract them. I tend to use this at night as I prefer something fresher and cleaner during the day. It doesn't work on all skin tones like most perfumes and it smells totally different on my mums skin and is too overpowering and smells quite sickly sweet rather than muskier. I do really like this fragrance and love that it is a bit different to the usual fruity scents that I tend to be more drawn towards.
Overall I would buy this again without a doubt but as I said its a love or a hate and I would be very careful before buying this on spur of the moment before testing it on your skin!
Summary: A definite rebuy!
