Thierry Mugler Angel Muse EdP

Thierry Mugler Angel is life. We’re past that fact by now, right? When a new flanker is released I just order it straight away, that’s how I tackle my obsession. Blog post about my Angel collection here.

The original Angel EdP is built on sour red berries, honey, vanilla, caramel, cocoa and patchouli. It’s zingy sweet from the berries and caramel but still dark and incredibly potent from the patchouli and cocoa base. I was so excited to hear about this years release Eau de Parfum Angel Muse, created by perfumer Quentin Bisch, promising a new gourmand take on the old classic.

In Angel Muse we get grapefruit, pink peppercorn, hazelnut cream, vetiver and patchouli. The sticky caramel is exchanged for hazelnut cream, smelling just like fluffy hazelnut spread. Not an actual roasted nut in sight! Vetiver is also an important addition. It is dark, dry and earthy which amplifies the dark base and turns pleasantly smoky on my skin. Never felt that before in an Angel! While having this dark and smoky vibe going it still has a shorter wear time than the original (landing at the normal 7 hour mark where most perfumes start giving up), so if you’re looking for that 12h+ longevity you should turn to the original. However, Angel Muse has a delicate balance between light and dark, still bearing then same ID as the Angel we know and love. You won’t be let down.

The heavy elliptical glass bottle wrapped in metal is described as a cosmic pebble. It feels fantastic to hold!

Birkin Brown

The most sophisticated brown lip colour I’ve tried so far is easily Birkin Brown from Charlotte Tilbury. It is most definitely a darker brown, but not the dusty dirt browns that we see everywhere at the moment. The warm chestnut red undertone in this one really brings it to life and makes it surprisingly wearable with even the simplest makeup looks. Like an alternative to red!
