Interesting Facts

T. Mugler successfully utilised ethylmaltol (first used in "Vanilia" by Artisan Parfumeur in 1978) in a mainstream perfume, thus kick-starting the gourmand genre in 90s. Maltol occurs naturally, e.g. when roasting malt, hence its name. Ehtylmaltol is a synthetic variant which increases the caramel impression four- to sixfold.
Vera Strübi, former president of the Mugler company reports that the bottle's prototype (a 85,000 € design) was not accepted by Mugler. They agreed on the famous star-shape flacon instead but were initially unable to find a glass blowing workshop able to produce it. Furthermore, Strübi and the investors at Clarins disliked the scent and Mugler had to fight for its realisation. The argument that the price per bottle was too high had been refuted with the idea of a refillable vessel.

Fallen Angel
At the outset, I'd like to apologize to all of you who think Mugler's Angel is da bomb. This is a negative review. I tested it again today, and I still cannot see how this is labeled as a sweet gourmand!!! It is not sweet at all to me! The first note I smell is very menthol, almost like Vick's... Read more

Perfect Gourmand...
A true beauty here. This is one which I expected to be a monster, but it really turned out to be sublime in it's smell and performance. I tried the male version first, which I found extremely harsh and almost cloying, with a screechy tar note and heavy patchouli. This in the other hand, is perfect... Read more

A Polarising Fragrance Everyone Should Try at Least Once
Believe it or not, I only first heard of Angel's existence a couple of years ago despite that it has been around since 1992! I began reading reviews of Angel soon afterward. The reviews were polarising to say the least. It seemed reviewers either loved or hated Angel with little in between.... Read more

not child's play
I do not understand why so many negative qualifications , Angel , is a perfect perfume, has great longevity, silage and projection, has a fragrance and timeless aroma , in my male skin it becomes less sweet, more powder and perfume with gourmand scent with a patcholi powder and camphor , along with...

Controversialist confection
Tension created by the mixture of edible and inedible notes is what gives the gourmand genre its particular interest. The mind isn't sure how to react to something that says 'eat me' and 'don't eat me' at the same time. Angel takes this effect one unsavoury step further with its red fruit syrup,... Read more

Boom!!
Dynamite in a bottle. Very strong oriental for extreme pachouli lovers. I think it has its character a must item for perfume collectors. Extra extra longevity and sillage. One single drop is enough to create a smelling cloud following you. Even if there are many negative comments I like it. Nice... Read more

Never fear it!
And I never fear wearing it! It is a "body builder" . The more it develops the more it embraces you like no other scent. Playful and sober, gourmand and delicate, strong and diaphane at the same time.

Angel-Fried Cotton Candy At A Summer County Fair
A warm, dark candy scent that reminds me of an expensive chocolate bar that's melted over and mixed into fried cotton candy at a summer county fair on a very hot, humid night. You dip your fingers into this outrageous candy delight in the night air, enjoy the sweet taste sensations while your other... Read more

Complicated
I've tried Angel several times at the store. Every time, it smells different on me. I get many different notes wafting through, from caramel to cotton candy, then fruity notes, patchouli. The first hour I wear it is awful...but then in the dry down it turns into something delicious...the problem... Read more

what a mess
Oh Angel, you smelly pirate hooker you! Down and dirty patchouli mingling with dark chocolate rolled in dust. Time and time again, I smell this fragrance trailing behind an anosmic shopper at the mall or an office worker...and it never smells pleasant to me. I sampled this on my skin, thinking... Read more

Release the genie in the wrong moment and it can be dreadful. But, right moment and Angel is a great dirty chocolate patch, sugarless, raw.+3

I will be blunt: This is a fallen angel...horribly foul and wrapped in a glittering and attractive package. Just like Satan.+1
