Time for the truth!
I've always wondered that apparently no one ever noticed what happened to Angel, at least that wasn't apparent from the comments (well, at 97 I might have overlooked something). The first comment that sums it up is the last from Karjala. Yes, my dear, you're saying it. "This artificially sweet-biting "scent" is really the epitome of what I don't want on my skin."
And now for the fragrance. How he used to be and how he is today.
As you can easily tell from my name, I loved Angel. I probably had the first reformulated version, the one before must have been even nicer. "Our time" was about the years 2010 to 2016, I was looking for a scent lost through reformulation and only noticed later that it was a copy of Angel (I also wrote a comment on that, see harem, which is absolutely unacceptable today, by the way, I had a rehearsal for fun, horrible and unbelievably bad!).
Angel was a dream! A cloud of joy!
I never took the trouble to dissect the individual scents, it was too complex for me. He had a wonderfully fruity-sweet start that lasted a long time with me, on some days I could smell a wonderfully sweet plum, even when I had left the room and came back again. At that time I ate muesli with prunes and somehow it was potentiated in the air. The beginning also quickly became a little bitter, but only light, that was the chocolate, but the bitter disappeared after a short time. With the Patchouly, which was probably also responsible for the somewhat harsh impact, I never had a problem, because it quickly became soft and wonderfully woven. Actually, I never liked fragrances that have too complex a course, but with Angel it was different. Every moment was unique, an experience and a pleasure. Despite his complexity he was always somehow homogeneous and coherent.
But the most beautiful thing came at the end. It ended in a wonderful warm, soft, velvety sweetness that lovingly blew over you for the rest of the day.
Yes, dear Karjala, you can have everything. Unsurpassed durability and sillage, and a fragrant fragrance!
I probably could have worn Angel for the rest of my life, but it was different again.
It must have been in 2016. The bottle ran out and of course there had to be supplies as soon as possible. As always ordered from my trusted dealer and tried immediately after arrival.
I just need to gather a little bit so I can find the right words. It was as Karjala described it. Terrible.
From the bottle came a disgustingly bitter-herbal mixture and I thought at first that the scent had tipped over. I once had a bottle where that was the case and I could only remember too well how it smelled. Besides, the liquid had faded, an unmistakable sign. Not so in this case. The blue was as beautiful as ever, the scent alone was a catastrophe.
No more nice fruity-sweet entry. It receives me a bitter and bitter repulsiveness, which is up to the end. No more delicious plums, nothing. I can best describe it as "bitter-herbaceous-synthetic" and it bites in the nose. Good believers might suspect a very bitter chocolate note here, and maybe it even is, but it's really just unappetizing.
If you believe that you just have to hold on long enough and will be rewarded in the end - no chance! There is no happy ending. No warm, soft, gentle sweetness that caresses and envelops you. Just disgusting, sticky, bitter sugar sauce.
All in all, I would put it in such a way that the scent is completely fragmented. Similarly, one would like to smash the beautiful star flacon into a thousand pieces.
I was so unbelievably disappointed by this adulterated brew that I gave it directly to my colleague who also loves Angel. Of course not without warning.
She didn't notice! Not until today! Every time she pulls this disgusting bitter synthetic flag behind her, I could scream!
When that happened, it was like losing a good friend. I mourned for Angel and for years I refused to buy a new favourite fragrance. So this doesn't happen to me again.
Finally it's out.
And that brings me to the end.
But not quite yet.
