Little leather demon with angel wings...
I own pretty much every version of my former favourite fragrance "Angel" by Thierry Mugler, but this limited edition particle is really absolutely "special" and has a high fragrance quality, which in my opinion can easily compete with the big niche fragrances.

This fragrance even gets better with age and storage, I have hoarded two bottles. Very rich in formulation, very oily and heavy.

Woody, harsh, really the pure, freshly tanned leather, this leather, what you smell in new luxury limousines and what the finest leather jackets are made of. A little dark and melancholy
But under these hard notes there is also a whole round of the original angel, soft, fruity, sugary-sweet-gourmand, somewhere even for my nose, also something green and fresh.

The Sillage is definitely worthy of a concert hall and the durability is enormously good. The bottle is beautiful and the packaging, including a leather pouch, is a flatterer in any collection.

A drop of Angel in a leather bag
I don't get much leather in the opening. It's like a more fruitier and less thick version of Angel. During the development, the leather note gets more and more evident but still difficult to pick it distinctively. It's blended in patchouli and sweetness. The drydown is mainly chocolate-caramel, some patchouli and some leather, and it's less sweet and has a more masculine vibe than the original. The longevity is like the long lasting original but the sillage is much closer.

I appreciate the more prominent fruity aspect and the well blended leather among the whole composition as I'm not fan of strong leather scent like Shalimar. I'd recommend it based on that. However, if you're looking for a distinctive leather note, I don't think this version of Angel will satisfy you.

Edit: It's interesting that when I wear it in winter, the leather note is quite noticeable especially in the opening. It's refined and slightly rubbery. Combined with patchouli and fruits, it feels like a new leather bag which happens to catch a few drops of Angel.

thematic leather
Angel les Parfums de Cuir & Alien les Parfums de Cuir

While I loved Angel Liqueur, I found the Mugler annual thematic releases uninteresting except for the apparent belief that branding is more important than perfume. It might make the magic of marketing synergy easier to achieve, but slapping a new flavor across an entire line seems at least cynical and more likely haphazard. I suppose, though, that every now and again a match has to occur. It also makes sense that Angel, with its fingers in so many different genres (gourmand, oriental, floral) is more likely than Alien, Womanity or Mugler Cologne to be fertile soil where the flavor of the year can plant itself.

Angel les Parfums de Cuir can hold the leather note without it seeming entirely out of place, but the leather does nothing to enhance Angel. It muddies Angel’s distinctive qualities, but it doesn't negate them. Sort of, meh. Not exactly the Angel battle cry.

Alien les Parfums de Cuir matches a dulled leather notes to the radioactive jasmine of the original Alien, giving us a real head scratcher. There are no interesting commonalities and no juxtapositions to exploit.  Until the leather note fades, when it is ultimately crushed under the weight of chemo floral oppression, Alien Cuir just seems like a mismatch, more of a smell that a scent.

Mugler's Cuirs are by definition formulaic and lack inspiration. They seem to come from the same thinking that give us, "Ugghhh. It’s November again. What should this year's holiday office party theme be? "
