Jag har ett problem. Eller problem och problem, en bugg i hjärnan kanske? Jag har ingen som helst hejd när det kommer till kultparfymen Angel från Thierry Mugler. Det var en av mina första doftförälskelser och så har det förblivit. Supermånga noter listas men i grund och botten bjuds det på en käftsmäll av syrliga röda bär, honung, vanilj, kola, kakao och patchouli. Originalet är en Eau de Parfum, en Eau de Toilette tillkom för några år sedan samt att doften årligen släpps i limiterade (och ofta rätt svårfunna) specialvarianter. EdP och EdT går att finna i de flesta parfymavdelningar om du är sugen på att dofta.
Efter att ha läst Fröken Rosas Angelknarkade blogginlägg så kände jag att det var dags att lufta min egen änglaarmé, så här kommer de, flaska för flaska!
I have a problem. Or should I call it a bug in my brain? I have no limits when it comes to the cult perfume Angel by Thierry Mugler. It was one of my first perfume loves and it hasn’t changed since then. A bunch of notes are listed but what’s mainly served is a smack in the face with sour red berries, honey, vanilla, caramel, cocoa and patchouli. The original is an Eau de Parfum, an Eau de Toilette was added a few years ago plus every year the scent is releaded in limited (often hard to find) special editions. EdP and EdT are available at most perfume counters if you feel like smelling it.
After seeing Fröken Rosa declare her love to the scent I felt that it was time to bust out my own army of Angels, so here they are, bottle by bottle!
They all come in different star shaped bottles, they are all pieces of art, and together.. arghh I can’t handle it!
Angel 20th Anniversary Edition. EdP, original scent (1992) released in a limited edition bottle (2012). It’s actually among my newest Angels, I chose spending money on limited editions rather than the easily acquired original, but when I found this gorgeous 20th anniversary bottle it was time.
Angel EdT. Permanent, released in 2011. The fruitier and softer version, yet just as strong as the original. Not at all watered down, more like the same scent with other proportions. Worth a try if you dislike the earthiness of the original, I know some people do.
Angel Aqua Chic. EdT, limited edition released in 2012. A really fresh one, bright and crisp with cornflower water and a lot of lemon. It feels like sparkling water, it fizzes! It still has the patchouli and vanilla which keeps its original ID, but it’s low on caramel. This is one of my best hot weather perfumes, all categories.
The Taste of Fragrance Angel. EdP, limited edition released in 2011. French top chef Helene Darozze created recipes based on four classic Thierry Mugler scents and perfumes were released with a gourmand note added, a taste enhancer. This version is like the original EdP but PACKED with dark unsweetened cocoa powder. Thick and alluring. My favourite Angel scent out of all.
Angel Eau Sucrée. EdT, limited edition released in 2014. A screechy sweet caramelized meringue and tangy berry sorbet. Barely any patchouli or vanilla in this one, not much Angel at all to be honest. My silly nose has a thing for scents like V&R Flowerbomb and Aquolina Pink Sugar Sparks, and this sugary edition fits well into that category. Not the best release Angel-wise even though I really enjoy wearing it.
Angel Liqueur de Parfum. EdP, limited edition released in 2013. Aged in toasted oak barrels like fine cognac which adds a warm and super smooth dimension to the scent. It’s also packed with honey which enhances the velvety feeling even further. The sour red berries are replaced with a hint of something ripe and soft without turning sugary sweet. It’s easily the softest Angel I’ve ever smelled, also one of my top picks.
