Stay Angry

I get so pissed. Especially during times when life is confusing and hard, I just can’t handle the conforming beauty standards that I work within. It’s a bonus weight that provokes me so damn bad. Sometimes it feels like a surreal joke how humanity constructed this giant machine that spits rules on what is right and what isn’t, which we then follow more or less unknowingly and put each other down for something that doesn’t matter at all in the end.

You shouldn’t look angry, look silly, weigh more than x, be like anyone else, be different, have an asymmetric face, have an uninteresting face, have blemished skin, follow trends, have hair on your face or body, wear a certain colour against your skin, wear an amount or type of makeup based on your gender identity.. Please let’s just fuck it all. 

On that note I’m giving you something else today. Messy, cakey, asymmetrical and insanely pleasing. It’s my way of telling you how much I truly appreciate seeing you guys pasted all over the internet doing weird and nonconforming shit, it gives me butterflies every time. You are my fuel! Stay angry, darlings.

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!
