LOVE it! though strong...very strong its by far the most complimented perfume that i have..i have angel innocnce which is less vanilla. This fragrance is very expensive but to have a "signature smell" then this is it! the packaging isnt gr8. the top kept falling off my my bottle
This is the Gen X Chanel No. 5. Raw sex housed in a beautiful, elegant crystal star that makes any bathroom counter look like a million bucks. All you need is this, a fresh pedicure and a nice, tasty man (preferably at least 10 years younger than yourself!).
Some Angel tips:
-There is no need to buy all of the layering components - this stuff lasts all on its own.
-Just a little spray will do you. It's very easy to cross the line from "Woman looking for a good time tonight" to "Woman who is looking for a good time for a price" when applying Angel.
Add me in the Angel lover's group. I don't know what else to say other than I feel "yummy" when I wear Angel.
I LOVE this stuff! I never have to worry about smelling like everybody else because it smells different on everyone. It is very distinct and very strong, so a little goes a long way. I will never stop wearing this perfume!
So, so late to the party with this one (I'm providing the 363rd review!). To begin, I join the voices that urge the faintest application. Inviting, warm, and delicious, Angel defies classification and you only have to glance at the cornucopia of notes alone to understand why. Cool bergamot is among the top notes, but they do a dissipation act, blending with berries and honey to create this edible vapor that settles on skin, making it fit for nibbling (it's no mystery why men especially love it). I also spy a dark chocolate note, fantastically evanescent, as if teasing the nose with a foretaste of what will come. And just when I think the moving pictures have ended, hours later, I see sticks of real vanilla bean swirling in a pool of gooey golden caramel. Finally, I'm reunited with the chocolate note, but this time it's melting in a caramelized bed of warm vanilla.
The way these mouth-watering notes appear is amazing, but Angel is not singularly delicious. What keeps the composition from joining the category of gourmand fragrances is the ubiquitous patchouli, always present, but one-upped again and again by the richness of the other notes. Patchouli instead suffuses the composition with an earthy, spicy quality. So vividly complex, Angel is like a quilt, directing the wearer to picturesque squares that illustrate its fragrant notes. continued >>
I recieved the body powder of Angel in a swap. It smells very good, but i never smelled the perfume of it, so i dont know if the perfume smells the same as the body powder.
Some women can pull off Angel...on them it smells delicious. This was a signature fragrance of an old friend of mine in college, and she received compliments all of the time. The chocolate and orange combination was just a beautiful combination. One day at Nordies I thought, what the hell, I wonder how Angel would smell on me, so I tried a spritz on my wrist. OMG, the combination with my body chemistry did not work well and I ducked behind a counter and begged the Clinique lady for some help saying "Please help me, this smell is making me ssssiiiicccck and I just need you to help this go away." We tried everything, including makeup remover, soap, you name it. That godawful Angel smell was chained to my wrist like a ball and chain. I went to the ladies lounge and tried scrubbing it off, but it still stuck like glue. Moral of the story is, if it works for you then great. I still love it on my friend, but on me it just smells something awful. Go figure.
I get an initial hit of fresh produce garbage, which instantly turns into a deeply sweet and sexy (uber-feminine) honey/caramel combination, then dries down into caramel, chocolate, vanilla, sandalwood, and a hint of patchouli. I've just finished my 3rd bottle, and find it extremely addicting. It's also a man magnet. Men love this one.
I know this is a very popular fragrance, and so many people love it, but after years and years of coming back and trying it again, even the newer versions, I still HATE it and want to wash it OFF of me immediately. I'm not a fragrance "expert", I just know I can't stand this!
Dont care for this one. Heavily overrated.
