I was given a gift set of this Angel Eau de Toillete for a birthday present by my husband. In a rather posh black presentation box was a shower gel, body lotion and a bottle of the eau de toillete. The bottle was a lovely, attractive looking glass bottle and in the shape of a star. This had a silver metal top. It also came with a blue material sleeve for keeping it in. This can be compressed at the top to spray the scent. It is not the most convenient bottle to store - it does not stand upright - but it is definitely eye catching and unique.
Looking online, a 40ml bottle of Eau de Toillette costs around £45 - the bottle is refillable if you can find a stockist to do this for you.
Angel is the first fragrance by Thierry Mugler and described as 'a voluptuous Oriental Gourmand with a celestial top of bergamot and helional as pure and transparent as air; a delicious heart of fruit and honey, which evoke mouth-watering childhood memories; and a sensual, passionate base of vanilla, chocolate, caramel and patchoul'. This is quite some description and paints rather a fun, romantic image in my mind! In reality, I would agree with parts of this description but certainly not all of it! I cannot detect all of the ingredients that this lists either, some are certainly more prominent than others.
On spraying, I can detect some sweet, fruity scents that are fresh and quite unique - I certainly have never smelt anything similar to this previously. The vanilla, chocolate and caramel add to the sweetness and mean that this may be too sickly sweet for some people - when I read the ingredient list I worried that it would be the case for me. However, I have found that they are subtly blended so as not to be too overpowering. The smell is strong so you definitely need only one or two sprays - it is quite expensive so this is a redeeming factor as it makes a bottle last quite a long time.
The scent also last very well. If I spray first thing in the morning, I can still detect this on me in the evening, and the scent actually improves over time in my opinion too. It becomes softer and more subtle too. It is especially fragrant when layered with the body lotion as this gives is a more dynamic feel.
If you like sweet scents, I would recommend this to you. I can't really detect the vanilla in this which is a massive plus point for me as this is a scent I really do not like in a perfume. It won't be for everyone but it is feminine and a versatile scent - I would wear this both for general daywear and for evenings/nights out too. Definitely worth a try!
I got Thierry Mugler last year for my birthday because I was seen using testers by my friends! They were nice enough to all pitch in and buy me the 50ml bottle. I really liked it a lot but couldn't afford to buy it for myself.
The 50 ml bottle retails for a 66 pounds and 50 pence, which is a lot of money. This doesn't come as a surprise at all because perfumes are generally expensive. But for this perfume, I guess in time I would have dipped in to my savings and purchased it because I found it to be so different in terms of the fragrance as well as the bottle.
The bottle is a round glass bottle with a silver star on the top which is slightly slanted to depict a shooting star. It is definitely not like anything I have ever seen before and that is what makes me love this perfume even more.
This perfume scent is definitely not for everyone, I find it suits some people and smells terrible on others. For me it describes the personality of a person. For example, it doesn't suit my cousin and she hates it for herself, but on me, she loves it and knows it as one of my signature scents. If you are more of an edgy person who loves different things and steps out of her comfort zone a little, I'm pretty sure you'll love this perfume. Saying that, perfumes do react differently with everyone's skin, therefore smelling a little different on each individual.
The best I can describe the scent is strong, unique, a little powdery with an obvious hint of vanilla. But the description on the box is that it has base notes of chocolate, vanilla, caramel and patchouli. It is described as an oriental gourmand which describes it best to be honest.
A few sprays of this perfume really goes a long way. Because it is a sultry type of strong scent you really don't want to overdo it. I usually spray one pump on my neck, one on my wrist and one on my clothes! It is more than enough to last the entire day. Even the next day I find my clothes smelling of the Angel perfume. As with any other perfume, if you put too much on it is simply off putting and not very pleasant at all.
I have people asking me what perfume I'm wearing all the time when I am wearing this particular scent. I get a lot of positive remarks which is always nice. On the other hand, even for me, I love this perfume some days but other days I just want something much softer and lighter. It isn't an everyday scent for me. It more of a night time scent or for some special occasion. Other than that, I love it. I love its uniqueness, I haven't smelt anything like it before.
If you are thinking about buying Angel by Thierry Mugler, just buy it because the amount of people that compliment my scent and ask what I have got in when I am out is unbelieveable. Angel comes in many different sizes and the bottle tends to change dependant also on what size you buy. I would personally buy the 50ml because it tends to be better value. Yes, it is a little more expensive than other perfumes but on the same hand, you only need a couple of sprays and it lasts all day, unlike some of the cheaperperfumes out there that tend to last for a couple of hours.
The smell is strong and when I first bought it, I thought it was too strong... however, it is literally the only perfume that I wear now becuase there aren't many days where someone doesn't comment on how nice it is. Other people that wear angel also often ask 'you've got angel on havent you?!' because the smell is so distinctive, there is nothing else quite like it. Thierry Mugler also does Alien, which is also nice but has a slightly strange musky smell to it. Both nice, but out the two I would buy Angel everytime. However, I do recommend that you go and test Angel before you buy it, simply because perfumes tend to smell different on different people :)
Angel was launched in 1992, created by Olivier Cresp and Yves de Chirin, released by Thierry Mugler.
This perfume comes in a variety of different shaped bottles depending on the size you purchase, but they are all beautiful. The one I have a 50 ml is shaped like a star, made of very heavy glass, the neck ( where the spray comes out is silver metal. It's screams quality and is also supposedly refillable. I absolutely adore this fragrance but have ended up paying full price for my last two bottles as I have yet to find out how you actually refill them what you have to do or buy! I'm told they they sell an actual refil bottle but I have not actually seen this advertised anywhere.... My plan is too endeavour to find out tho when I run low of this one. So I will update if I mange it!
The bottle as I said is heavy and is held easily in the palm of your hand! It almost appears to balance on the dressing table rather than stand although is safe and it's shape does not make it fall off! The fragrance itself appears blue in colour through the bottle. It doesn't mark your clothes though when sprayed.
The packaging is a simple blue and black box with white corrugated inners, it has the product information on the back clearly written in black with the name and designer ( in silver writing) on the front.
Cost wise, it is a premium branded perfume and this is reflected in the cost, I paid about £60 from boots, which in having a quick scan on internet is about average for this size!
Onto the smell..... I always find it quite hard to describe a smell but here goes, it is long lasting and a scent a save for the evening, albeit I can still smell it the next day. It is very sensual and a few squirts will suffice as it is quite strong, over spritz can be a bit overpowering, so be mindful.
The base notes of the product are described on its website as containing Tonka Bean, Amber, Patchouli, Musk, Vanilla, Dark Chocolate, Caramel.

Once you know what the scents are contained in the product you can relally pick them out when you are wearing it, people after ask what it's I'm wearing when I have this product on.
