Angel is the most overrated, overpriced and over worn perfume I have ever experienced in my life! I have tried this numerous times because I thought 'surely it must get better?' but it never does! It smells of body odour, pee and bug spray. I got into my friends car and she said to me 'What is that foul smell?!' Everytime I smell this on someone I feel so ill. To all the people who wear this: PLEASE USE SPARINGLY because quite frankly it is disgusting.
The most controversial perfume. You will love it or hate it. Nothing in between. You have to have a personality or rather a character to wear it well.
I've been using angel for sometime now and I used to despise it. It really is a love or hate it perfume depending on ones body chemistry. An old coworker of mine used to wear this and I hated it on her. I never wanted to try it because of that. When I bought a refill of womanity, which I LOVE, the SA gave me a sample of this to try and I have had a love affair with this one ever since! Thierry Mugler's perfume line is very unique, but they are all at least worth trying. They are very high quality fragrances and totally worth the investment!
Since it's Release in 1992 Angel has been Revered Repeled Idolised Scroutinized Critizised for it's Synthtic Aesthetics
Angel Has to be the most Misunderstood Heroine of Perfumery, Is this all Doom and Gloom for Angel?' Perhaps
But Mr Mugler Doesn't go by Convention and Angel is his Dopelganger, A Perfume for People who think outside
the Box, The Notes of Angel is Beyond Complex It's more i can say an Epic Like the Odyssey or the Maharbharata
The Notes are like the pages of a Book that needs to be Discypher for Knowlege.
Angel opens with Patchouli adds a Brief Smoky touch A Tinge of Incense Finishes the Top, The Drydown
we get a Mixture of Pineapple and Orange In a Few Minutes Angel Turns in a Gormet Fantasy of Different
Layers Of Chocolate Dark to White Comes Steeping our Senses Like a Decadent Desert, Red Berries Adds the Juiciness of Angel, The Cotton Candy And the Pervasive note of Musk Is Like a mature version of Aqualina's
The Con is Unfortunally Angel Despite it's Complexity it's Just a Plathora Of Sweet Plastic.
I received this for my birthday from my man...it's his favorite perfume, other than Dolce and Gabana's Light Blue which he's already gifted me and which is completely different.
If you don't like baby powder, you'll hate this. I have a baby who's still in diapers so I kind of love the smell of baby everything. If you think "young" scents=fruity, this is not for you.
Also, you MUST wait for this to settle on your skin (as you should with every perfume you try)...the initial spray of this is not it's true scent. It's extremely strong at first and not what it ends up smelling like after it sets. I can understand how people are overwhelmed by it at first.
I dislike "old lady" scents and most musks...I consider Red Door an old lady scent, to give you an idea of my opinion of old lady...and I could see how this could evolve to smell that way on some people.
This perfume is amazing with my body/skin's chemistry and fades into the softest, gentle, sultry, velvety, silky, sexiest scent I've ever worn. So rich but somehow still light and airy, feminine and girly, not at all too mature for me (in my 20's). I feel like Angel is a perfect name for the way this smells on me after a couple of hours...it's just such a romantic, lovely, through and through female, angelic scent. It smells like it's price, too...expensive lol.
I guess the people who say it smells like chemicals or bug spray have a totally different body chemistry, b/c this smells nothing like raid on my skin.
It's nice to finally have a staple perfume that smells young on me that doesn't smell like a cheap fruity drug store body spray (also why I love dior light blue...that's more of a summer scent, though).
A little goes a long way...so if you're a multi-sprayer, you're probably going to suffocate yourself and others around you. It's best to spray this at least a half hour before you go out so it has time to melt in.
Ive been using this perfume for probably 10 years now. I love it. This is only one of two perfumes I'll ever use.
Angel's Armpit. 'nuff said.
I saw that one of the notes in this product was chocolate, so I bought some to try. This product gives me a headache and is way too "deep" for me as a female. I smell it constantly on others when out in public and it still makes my head hurt.
I highly recommend you trying this before you buy it Angel is one of the scents whom changes according to body chemistry. I love it its my HG scent I slather it on take a bath in it love it love it love ittt my siblings love it, my mother thinks it smells reminiscent of a garbage dump (actually makes her dry heave). I've been buying it for years and will continue buying it love it and can't stress that enough.
What a strange love affair I have with this perfume. I agree with many reviewers, this is a very polarizing scent, and I've been on both ends of the spectrum, having hated and loved this perfume.
I purchased several samples a couple years ago when I started really getting into perfumes and initially did not like it all. While I could always appreciate the complexity and depth, I just didn't think it was me, and the inital blast of patchouli annoyed me. I have since pulled the samples out every couple of months or so and given them many additional tries. Over the last year or so I began actually liking it more and more to the point where I had used up all the samples and had to decide whether or not I liked this enough for a full size bottle. Well, I am now at the point with this perfume that I absolutely love it. I find myself craving it, especially now that the weather is cooler. I absolutely adore snuggling into bed with this scent floating all around me, it is so comforting and yummy yet deep and musky and sensuous. How much I love this perfume now is mind boggling to me, if you would have asked me a year ago if I would be wearing this scent regularly I would have said "hell no!" and made an icky face. I've recently started playing with the Angel flankers and am having a wonderful time with that as well. Some of the flankers are quite different, yet you can tell they're in the same family, but there's nothing like the original!
