a halo - hung on horns
"Ange ou Démon" has occupied me again and again for some time now: it is a fragrance that carries both in itself!
Women can be angels, wreathed with garlands of flowers; but very quickly they can become prickly: then the devil shows his horns and often also his horse's foot!
Then it is often said to take the feet in the hand and take flight!
In general they are then called Zicke!

Givenchy leaves here a refined "hermaphrodite creature" from the linen/flacon:
The first perceptible fruity spice is born from mandarin (here not as synthetic as unfortunately often) and strong thyme.
Mandarin is the softer variant of thyme than the lemon, which is often used as an antithesis.
This makes the prelude less fresh, but more nose friendly for me: it doesn't bizzel like that.
Saffron is a noble addition; a luxury good also here - an invitation to enter this world of fragrance: the door there is now open, the "Red Carpet" rolled out.
However, now "Ange ou Démon" shows his horse foot: the powdery scent of the orchid frightens me again this time.
It is, like gardenia, a hurdle that I always have to jump over when getting to know a fragrance - sometimes with more, sometimes with less success!
Fortunately, the splendour of the white lily interferes here just in time; these large white flower funnels with the golden, sometimes also saffron-red stamens generously exude their aroma.
This is pure and clear as the white lily blossom and covers the powder layer of the orchid.
Now the bright flashing of Ylang-Ylang.
is a perfect match So far, "Ange ou Démon" wears a white angel's robe from which the little horse's foot flashes out for a moment. Has the scented angel secretly cut a slit into it?
The devil is sick of it now: he enters this fragrance room and has a particularly nice dose of oakmoss in his luggage!
And kidnaps somir in a deeper, darker scent area, which is very tempting.
Those who follow it meet an erotically warm, creamy, flowing vanilla stream, richly perfumed with the sweetness of the tonka bean: the goddess of love has married herself to the darker side of the power of fragrance here.
Here she does not blow quietly to attack the senses; she seduces directly, not exactly subtly.

"Ange ou Démon" is an angel who sometimes gives his halo to the wardrobe.
There the devil grabs him and hangs him over his horns!
It always does both of them good - otherwise life would be too calculable, too boring.

Am I dealing here with a devilish angel or an English devil?
This question will certainly keep me busy for a while: my judgement is always different - depending on the form of the day and the time of day.
Is that perhaps intentional?

"Ange ou Démon" can stay with me a little longer; maybe I'll get behind his secret.
Will I end up in heaven or hell?
I'm sure it'll be interesting.

It's a complex and spellbinding chameleon of a scent.
While out walking a canine friend one spring morning, flowers bursting all over the neighborhood, I thought, "Man all these flowers smell amazing!" I quickly realized that incredible burst of florals was actually the Ange ou Demon emanating from my wrist. Wow! I had it applied only a small amount to one wrist to test, and already this scent was wafting around me.

It is, indeed, incredibly sweet. But also spicy and exotic. The mandarin orange gives it a little punch, and the florals are dreamy and just dripping with sweet vanilla. The woody notes really anchor it and give it that notable sensuality. What a perfect name "Ange ou Demon" (Angel or Devil) - it's so versatile. It seems to perfectly conform to how you decide to wear it. A playful, sweet and feminine daytime fragrance? Sure! A seductive (perhaps naughty) nighttime perfume? Absolutely!

Lastly, I disagree that it's strictly a cold-weather scent. I'd wear this any time of the day, any time of the year, it's incredible! Long lasting with incredible sillage, too.

Ange ou Demon
Every angelic face hides a devilish persona ange ou demon definse that. it starts sweet and half a hour later transform to an deep intoxicating notes
of dark florals and dry woods makes it
a versitile frangrance for the ages.

The opening starts sharp with a note of mandrian orange dries gracfully with the velvety feel of Saffron and dries
the top notes with the innocent notes
of thyme and White Lily, The middle section starts to become more deeper
with the presence of dark orchid and the wisting scent of nocturnal jasmine bloom though the night.

The drydown is an dry finishing scent of oakmoss vanilla adds to the angelic sweetness to the frangrance exotic brazilian rosewood and ends with the nutty accord of tonka bean.

I just love the flacon design and color the coloring is reminisent of the sun setting though the twillight sky on a clear night i also love the jagged artwork of the bottle worthy of it's demonic edgeiness there is nothing soft about this scent this is for a girl who is sweet on the outside but deliciouslly bad from the inside.

Decide for yourself: angel or demon?
I'm surprised by Ange Ou Demon. Prior to testing this fragrance I had assumed it was similiar or along the lines of Armani Code for women and Thierry Mugler's Angel, however I find it much softer and in some ways more mysterious.

Ange Ou Demon isn't as gothic and dark as the bottle seems to suggest. There's this undeniable softness and fragility which adds to this fragrance's allure.

The scent is light and 'fluffy', almost airy with subtle hints of spicyness, like pepper or thyme. There is also a distinctive powdery-like quality to Ange Ou Demon which is reminiscent of some classic aldehydic fragrances.

I enjoy Ange Ou Demon's spicy yet powdery scent, because like D&G for Women, this is a powdery fragrance that isn't sharp or soapy, instead it's inviting and sensual.

When applied with a light hand, (as one should always do), the sillage is just strong enough to capture the people that dare to come close. I particularly like this aspect because it certainly adds to this perfume's mysterious appeal.

Apart from the dominant notes of spices, florals and vanilla, I also sense a cinnamon note, which reminds me of Intimately Beckham Night, which is in some ways very similar to Ange Ou Demon.

I'd say the lasting strength of this scent is good, however I fear this fragrance will be reformulated soon due to the oakmoss component. I highly suggest you try this scent while it is still in its original formulation.

How do you feel? this scent could be fresh or warm, seductive or pure , anyway pleasant. Quite good sillage, but not a masterpiece.
