I am really excited as this is my first ever fragrance post on the blog. What better way to start than with a new twist on an already iconic fragrance.
I have to be honest and say that I never tried the original Angel fragrance, I think that because of the adverts and the packaging I just assumed that it was aimed at very young women. When I was offered the opportunity to try the new fragrance I visited my nearest department store to test the original fragrance so that I could make a comparison. I have to say that I found the original EDP very sweet and quite powerful, it reminded me of candy floss and toffee apples. After a couple of hours it had dried down to a lovely more wearable scent. I sprayed this perfume on my wrist at 10am and I could still smell it at 10pm.
Now onto the new Angel EDT.
Just look at that bottle, isn't it a thing of beauty, it's absolutely gorgeous. The bottle is quite heavy and the lid is magnestised. The bottle is also refillable.
Now onto the contents. It is claimed that Angel EDP is softer, smoother and more subtle than the original.
The fragrance is structured in three waves, Heavenly, Delicious and Voluptuous.
Heavenly - Bergamot and Pink Peppercorn.
Delicious - Praline and Pink Fruits
Voluptuous - Cedar and White Musk
When I first sprayed this I could definitely smell the citrus from the bergamot, this quickly dried down to a gorgeous woody aroma and then the white musk kicked in. Once settled this is a very sophisticated fragrance, much more grown up than Angel EDP. I have been wearing this to work for a couple of days and I have had several people ask me what perfume I am wearing, even a few of the men have asked. The more I wear this fragrance the more I like it. I think this will definitely be on my Christmas wish list
Go to Mugler's Official Channel and see the making of the advert for ANGEL EDT. Then pop over to see the beautiful Eva Mendez in the television advert.
ANGEL EDT retails at £46 for a 40ml refillable spray and £65 for an 80ml refillable spray.
