This is a sensational fragrance - love at first sniff, that blossomed into love as the dry-down warmed with my skin when I tested it in Selfridges. Initially I got a lovely almond cloud, soft and powdery and akin to Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab's Dana O'Shee. However, as time progressed, it warped into something rich with jammy rhubarb, bright grass, fresh anise and sherbert sweets. Not at …Read more

This is such a lively scent. It reminds me of childhood. It's sweet without being cloying, spicy and fresh/green all at the same time. I like that it's all natural without the typical essential oil scent. Staying
power is a problem though. This should be offered as a perfume or eau de perfume please!!

Ladies, I have to disagree with you, this perfume is absolutely lovely. So delicate, feminine, truly a fragrance to savor in through your nostrils. True, it requires an extra squirt or two, but really, who wants their perfume to enter a room first? Not I. This is 100% natural, so naturally, the notes are highly sensitive, volatile and will evaporate quicker then the artificial additives and …Read more

Fabulous ! My favorite perfume, I love the brand, except the Carottes smell but tried lots of them at Selfridges this Summer and buy Sexy Angelic at that time in a Glass Jarr, so nice & original. I found the bigger size now.
Price is correct when we know it is a Giacobetti.. more expensive usually :) I used to love Iunx too but now, only have natural and organic perfume. Before I …

Oh boy! I think I have found my new fitness craze and that is sniffing Sexy Angelic. I tell ya, I can feel my ab muscles working!! This is more like Eau Fraiche not Eau de Toilette. Unlike most people, this has a good lasting power on me, about 24 hours. The problem however is that you have to struggle to sniff it even right out the bottle.


It smells like a fancy plastic doll. No …

I got a sample of this. And it does smell very pretty almondy and sweet without being overly sweet. I feel like I am getting a little something citrus-y from it. But it faded on my skin in about 2 minutes. No exaggeration. Too bad because while it lasted, the smell was very pretty.

If anyone finds something similar that lasts, please PM me!

I have two beefs with Honore des Pres' "Sexy Angelic" which are as follows:

a) The ridiculous, pseudo-Victoria's Secret type name made me suspicious even prior to sniffing. But, I love a good deal of Olivia Giacobetti's work (IUNX, L'Artisan Parfumeurs) so I was willing to overlook that and try a sample.....

However.

b) Um - Miss …

Sadly, this is so weak that you just cannot appreciate it. I'm a huge fan of natural, organic perfumes & was so excited to see a new French line (and with 4 of the 5 perfumes formulated by none other than Olivia Giacobetti). However, I was surprised to hear that these would be EDT concentrations-it just doesn't work with Sexy Angelic, Nu Green or Honore's Trip (the only one …Read more

Got a sample from perfumed Court, it is described as:
Sexy Angelic is described as "a cuddle of almond rubbed on the washed skin of a young girl in tears", with conium flower, angelica seed and calisson." A skin scent gourmand.

Gourmand??? I don't agree. Skin scent??? Yep! so much so I gave myself a headache trying to sniff it off my wrist, it had barely any …
