I didn't like this fragrance. I smelt very medicinal, stale and musty to my nose. Thankfully I only had a sample, so no sale for me. I guess it just didn't suit my chemistry. A good reminder of "try before you buy" for me.

The Violet version of Angel lacks the harsh opening notes that I hated in the original Angel, but the violet notes in the top notes quickly disappear and you're left with the classic Angel drydown (which I rather like). Not bad.

I don't/won't own Angel, but this one.......different story. It is my sexy fragrance and one of my top 3. It is rich/woodsy/dark/seductive. Probably the Patchouli that does it....add the femininity of the violet and it's the perfect bewitching scent as far as I'm concerned. Lovely and unique, so definitely test it first. The lasting power and sillage is great too.

To my surprise, Violet is my favorite of the Angel Garden of Stars collection. I wear it as a casual alternative to the original Angel, which - after 10 years and testing tons of other perfumes - remains my favorite perfume. Although I personally will not buy this scent again (because Its similar to - but doesnt hold a candle to the original Angel), it's a really nice scent that i would recommend people trying.

I got a few large samples of the garden series just to see if I could abide them, and violet took me by surprise. I can't wear Angel (although I like it on some people), and I can't abide most violet scents, either. But I didn't really sense a true violet note - rather, an earthy tone was introduced into Angel, almost a dense green note, grounding it from escaping into cotton candyland, like Angel scents tend to do. When I woke up the next morning, I found that it had settled into the collar of my p.j.s, and smelled even lovelier after a long drydown, with the earthiness having been retained. When I have spare cash, I''d consider a purchase, but there are too many fragrances that I'm truly lemming to spend money on Angel Violet.

I tested this at the same time as Angel Peony. I liked the Peony version, but this one isn't completely agreeing with me - it's like no-name grape DM cough syrup gone rancid. Eurghchkle! What a waste of a nice big sample. A scrubber. No sale. Naturally.

The opening notes of this are gorgeous: Violet, bergamot, red berries, sweet without cloying, gentle and soft, floral without clinging, a little wet, fresh...then the dry down. Just like Angel original, Violet goes very bad on me. The top stays lovely and lyrical and underneath it all is a terrible, inescapable body odor scent. It smells like unwashed human, and it's terrible. If I could have the top notes only, this would be my new favorite. As it is, I'll stay away from the Angels all together.

I love this fragrance! For the record I hate Angel and I hate most fragrances that are billed as "violet". But this combination has it right for me - not too candy like, not too spicy, and not too powdery. Sure it has the heady musk, patchouli, and vanilla base of Angel, but it's not overpowering like the original. It lays there and anchors the fragrance without overwhelming it. The violet notes are pretty accurate, it strikes a good balance between candy and powdery, at least for me. I receive a lot of compliments when wearing Angel Violette from both men and women, complete strangers too. It works for me. I hope that TM puts out a body lotion or cream too because this isn't a subtle fragrance and some days I want something a little bit softer. I'll just wait then :)

I agree with the reviews that say this is like a softer, prettier version of Angel with violet, but I don't particularly care for Angel (okay I hate it). I love violet anyway, but this definitely smells like a Theierry Mugler type violet.

Now this? THIS is amazing!!! Powdery, but warm and solid, with a twist of violet, It has whatever aspect of the original of Angel I ever found appealing, without the aspects of the original I ever found overpowering. This worth the wading through all the other perfumes in the Angel line! So, to make up for my terse, uncomplimentary reviews of the other TM fragrances, I will sing the praise of this particlar one! Yum!

I love Angel Lily, and the peony and rose versions are nice, but this interpretation smell just like my boyfriend's athletes foot spray. Boo.

After wearing it for an hour, it reminded me of a cheap-smelling version of Lolita Lempika. Ick. (And I love the original Angel, although I'm hesitant to wear it based on how strong it is and how much it bothers so many people.)

Different...it's O.K. once a month! EDIT: I threw it away!!!

I'm a fan of Angel, though it can be a bit too foody at times for me. Last night I was doing some holiday shopping and stumbled on the 'garden' scents. I found violette to be just gorgeous! Lily was strong and I made a face when I smelled it. GAH. But I love violette. It's lighter than Angel, and the violet comes right through, but not in an overpowering way. I was given a little sample and tried it again this morning, with the same great result. It's so pretty. It could definitely be an everyday scent for me, unlike Angel, which I only wear once or twice a week.

You should see my reaction when I was trying this at the counter! Pungent and has a slight soap smell and difficult to breath. God I think my nose might get irritation from it!

None of the patchouli or "woody" scents come through on me -- thankfully! What I get is fresh violet from the garden. I feel incredibly sweet and pretty when wearing this -- just like a Violet Angel. :-) The first time I wore it, I spent the day noting how much I like it, and wondering how soon it was going to wear off, since it seems few of my favorite scents cling to my skin. But it lasted for hours upon hours. The second time I wore it, I began to really notice the how lovely the scent is -- like walking through a garden in late spring -- and I began to think that perhaps I've finally found a scent I can truly make my "signature" scent. I tend to purchase my fragrances in mini sizes because I like to try to many and because I have so many there is really no point in buying the large size since I wear the same fragrance so few times in even a year. But this fragrance -- well, I can see myself purchasing the full size. It's just so incredibly lovely.

My 9 y.o. daughter & I are fans of the original Angel. We tried this and the rest of the Angel collection at a store display today. No matter how hard we tried, we could not smell anything in these testers. Nothing! It may as well be water. I'd blame myself for olfactory aging of middle age--you know, the older you get the less you can smell--but my 9 y.o. couldn't smell it either. So age isn't a factor. I think this is okay if you don't want to offend anyone at work. No one will smell a thing. But I don't think you're getting your money's worth, either. If you don't want to smell like perfume, it's cheaper to not wear any at all than buy a fragrance-free perfume.

To be honest, I don't own this one - and never will. I did try on a sample I received in a Macy's mailing and I agree that the original Angel, which I love, tries to peek out, but is definitely massacred by rotten violets. There are other violet fragrances that I like because they have a sweet smell to them. Not this stuff though! Plus, it's outrageously priced.

I really like the Violet Angel. Being a fan of Violet, I think it does well to mellow and sweeten out the original concoction. It adds a powdery, innocent note that takes Angel into the daytime. (I tend to think of the original as a "going-out" scent.) Like its Mama, a little goes a long way with this one as well. Makes me quite excited to try the other two, Peony and Lily.

Being a fan of the original Angel scent I was leary about the garden scents. I tried all three and fell in love with the Violet version. This definitely agrees with my picky body chemistry in a good way. I will be buying this fragrance again.
