I wanted so to love this! I sampled Angel 5 times before giving up, realizing that it's just not for me. Angel is a complex scent that is more suitable for special occasions, I think. On me, it smells green and slightly earthy. Being a fan of warm musks, this classic won't end up on my shelf after all. Not bad, just not me. EDIT: I've kept coming back to Angel since my first sample, and now I like it more than before. It's very similar to LMDV Antilles and Profumi di Pantelleria's Jailia, which means it's heavy on patchouli. I love patchouli but those who hate earthy scents probably won't take to Angel. In the bottle I also detect a strong chocolate note that is no longer so pronounced on my skin (this is actually quite good as I usually don't like gourmand, and especially chocolate notes in my perfume). Interesting, but not exactly FBW for me. I just don't think I could pull this off.
I love this scent and always get complements when I wear it (especially from men). Be carefull, a little goes a long way. A couple of months ago I ran out of it and was considering buying it for myself of just waiting for my boyfriend to get it for me for my birthday. It is rather pricy and for some reason I had a "cheap attack" and was willing to wait.
I went to Walgreens on my lunch hour for a couple of things and alas, I came upon an imposter fragrance of Angel. I sampled it and ended up buying 2 bottles which were on sale at the time (2 for $11.00). I like this better than the real thing, it smells like Angel but milder. The brand is Instyle Fragrences, an impression of TM's Angel. Definately worth a try.
The only high end fragrance I actually like the scent of. The rest of them smell like stuff concocted in labs. This one smells sort of like that, but in a warm homey sort of way, like vanilla cream pie or something. Doesn't smell quite as natural as I'd like, but much better than most.
This stuff makes me want to barf. I would imagine this is what the back of a pimps car smells like.
Angel is truly a one of a kind fragrance- hence people either love it or hate it.
I love it. It may be popular, but i don't care. It's not popular smelling so I feel unique when I wear it.
This is a love/hate perfume and I certainly don't love it, at least not on me. Angel is the absolutely worst perfume I've ever tried.
Revisiting this perfume again from 2001. Here is my review from then and it still holds true. Angel is one of the classics of fragrances! ---This is a classic scent in my book. This is a unique and rare scent, only someone daring can wear this. It is a deep sweet powdery scent with some like [armpit] scent splashed in there [Ha Ha] to give it major sex appeal. All you need is *one* spray and it lingers on you. It envelops a cloud of scent around that molds to you. That kind of quality is rare and hard to find. I used to wear this back in 1998 after I purchased this in France. I actually didn't like wearing it too much at the time because it attracts a lot of attention. This is a definite LOVE or HATE fragrance - it's extreme.
Smells like a Terrys Chocolate Orange! You know, the kind you get at XMas and you slam it on the table and it breaks up into segments that look like an orange?
Acutally, not a bad fragrance, but I find it hard to see what the fuss is all about, when there are great frags out there very similar to this one (Youth Dew, for one) that are good and much, much less expensive. I gave it a 3 for the cute star packaging.
Edit: I'm changing this to three stars. Its rather nice upon the drydown, when the fruity florals gives way to the patchouli. More than a passing resemblance to Nirmala (vintage formula), but with more patchouli, which in my book is a good thing. Would buy again.
evry1 says this is sweet but i just think it smells odd! its really strong and reminds me of grannys! but the star bottle is really pretty
this stuff is gross... I dont see why anyone would wanna smell like this. Its too sugary and just has this odd plastic smell to it. I was given a sample spray on paper, sniffed it and tossed it in the trash. This stuff is instant headache. Ughh..
