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..
I absolutely love the smell of this but no one else can stand it on me. First smelled it on a woman in a grocery store and had to ask her what it was. And I'm not really into perfume. No stores within 120 minutes of me carried Angel, and so finally I HAD to buy some online. To me it's almost intoxicating. Maybe it's something weird about my nose, but to me it smells like pine with mango undertones. The only way I get away with wearing it under normal circumstances is to use the "Celestial Showers" shower gel. This is much less powerful, especially since you wash it off. I don't get complaints when I use the shower gel, since I'm about the only one who can smell it. Seeing as I'm the only one around who ~wants~ to smell it....it works. The sparkley body powder is also nice, but the fragrance is so weak even I can't smell it after I put it on. Angel Innocent just doesn't cut it, either, it's also too strong for me and I don't even like the smell.
I agree with LadyGrey, the stuff just doesn't smell good on anyone. A co-worker sprayed some on my wrist [and it got on my duster] saying it was her favorite. My initial reaction: nasty and not sexy at all; my reaction hours later: nauseating, headache enduring chocolate smell; my reaction the next morning when I put my duster back on: 'what is that smell' with a sour face searching until I found the culprit....it was me. Fortunately it isn't popular where I live so I don't have to fight off the Angel lovers. I like the star bottle even though I found it hard to spray but who cares when the scent smells this bad and is way over priced. UPDATE(9/12/05): I'm adding a lip because it isn't vomit inducing like I originally thought(maybe it's due to the Angel loveing co-worker resigning). I still think it's overpriced and I still choose Wish by Chopard over it.
i personally love this fragrance. i good friend of mine gave me a sample a long time ago and i've been hooked ever since. strong, yes, but there are ways to tone it down (i.e. a dab of body cream or spraying mist away from you). i feel like it suits me but i guess i can see where it might not work for everyone. fragrance is somewhat subjective i guess
This smells bad. And no, it's not just my body chemistry- trust me, it smells bad on you, too. I know, because I've smelled it on you - on the bus, at the movies, all over Paris (why? why?), in the street.
The only explanation I can come up with is not the typical 'body chemistry' explanation (where it smells good ON some and not on others) but my own personal theory of 'nose chemistry' - where it smells good TO some people and utterly gut wrenchingly awful to the others. You can guess which camp I fall in.
In short: are you wearing Angel? Go and wash it off, please. If you refuse, and I catch you, I'll confiscate your entire perfume collection and force you to wear Giorgio Beverly Hills until you see sense and beg for mercy. You have been warned.
I loved the packaging and the idea of the scent but it is much too strong. It gives me a headache and almost sent my husband into anaphylactic shock. His eyes, nose and throat started to burn and he got an instant headache. I smell this on other people every once so often and I do like it when it's worn off a bit, but I can't wear it myself. It's just too overpowering when first applied.
The Angel bottle is a stunning glass and metal representation of a star.
The fragrance is a bold oriental. I enjoy wearing this once in a while, in wintry weather, especially when there is snow falling. This is a heavy scent that doesn't do well in summer or spring.
No matter how many times I have tried this fragrance, I have been unable to pick out the chocolate note, the fruit, or any other interesting individual notes. Instead, I get strong patchouli that uncomfortably overcomes the vanilla, sandalwood, etc. This may be due to personal chemistry, I find this fragrance unwearable (and unbearable to others who smell it one me).
To be honest, I didn't try the original but an exact imitation perfume of "Angel" at Walgreens just for curiosities sake. And ya know what? I don't know what all the hooplas about! I truly felt sick from the scent. To me, it smells like a man's cologne, very STRONG and overpowering, and not feminine at all. Very "alcoholish". Oh yes and after I sprayed myself I walked over to my husband and he says "I just lost my appetite, what's that smell?!!"
