---Why I wanted it---
Smelt this perfume years ago and took ages to try and tract it down - but finally did.
Made by Thierry Mugler (www.mugler.com).
Very strong and distinctive - would say it was even slightly chocolatey. It is definitely an acquired taste - I absolutely LOVE it - but my husband cannot stand it - so it is as well if you try it out before buying (either sample in a shop or you can buy small spray samples on ebay for a couple of pounds - these are also good to carry in your handbag) - as its not for the faint hearted. Don't go with the first smell - leave it develop on your skin and the undertones will be mellower. According to the Perfume Shop: 'Angel is a voluptuous Oriental Gourmand with a celestial top of bergamot and helional as pure and transparent as air; a delicious heart of fruit and honey, which evoke mouth-watering childhood memories; and a sensual, passionate base of vanilla, chocolate, caramel and patchouli'. Does not tell you much really!!
Also quite expensive - a 25ml bottle in a star shape as above, is currently £42 on the Boots website. But I try and buy when on offer, or as a treat at Christmas for myself - I was lucky last time and picked up a reduced gift box at Boots after Christmas a while ago - but the bottles tend to last ages and with one squirt you will have enough on for all day and it doesn't fade away quickly and doesn't need to be re-applied like some cheaper options. DO NOT over apply or you will be smelt from miles away!!
Even the body lotion has to be used sparingly.
My set came in a lovely box padded out with foam with cut-outs for the three items - very expensive lookin.
Anel comes in perfums as well as hand cream and body cream - also equally strong. There is also a shower gel and deodorant plus scented candles - check out the website in case more have come out. There is also an Angel Innocent perfume which I have not tried plus La Rose, Violette, Pivoine and Le Lys versions. Thierry Mugler also does ranges for men.
Also has lovely star shaped clear glass bottle (as above picture shows), it is the perfume that is pale blue - apparently the star bottle too two years to design. I have even sold a bottle on ebay - empty! It can also come in a more stand-up sort of bottle - still with star shaped sides and with star shaped silver lid.
Definitely what is now my 'signature' fragrance - it is a smell I never tire of - unlike other perfumes where I am fed up of them before using half the bottle - so actually quite less wasteful and value for money that way.
Long lasting heady perfume - a little goes a very long way.
Expensive, strong smelling - you either love or hate it - a bit like Marmite!!
Summary: Strong and sweet smelling - my favourite - give it a try.
