i love this parfume. i can totally see why someone would hate it as it is an aquired smell. Its somewhat cinnamony and spicey and sweet and chocolatey and some patoulie.
I received a sample of this, and HATED it! I soooo wanted to like this stuff, but it was just awful, too sweet, cloying, I did not like chocolate notes at all. I won't buy this and hope not to come across someone wearing this!
I have never bought this odious fragrance nor do I ever plan to. All I know is that whenever it stinks like Drano or a dead body (depending on body chemistry), I know someone wearing "Angel" must be closeby. I can't believe that people think this smells great! Every time I smell it I go running in the other direction. It's strong, putrid, and overbearing. UGH!!!
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.
