Thierry Mugler Angel Muse Eau de Parfum: Review

Disclaimer: The product featured was provided for review.
For Summer 2016, Angel from Thierry Mugler has yet another reincarnation in the form of Angel Muse ($70 CAD for 30ml). Boasting notes of pink peppercorn, hazelnut cream, and patchouli, this new fragrance promises to be addictively delicious and feminine. To read all about it, click.......

The Bottle:
Named the "cosmic pebble", the Angel Muse bottle has a flattened elliptical shape. The inner glass center, etched with a pretty star design, is surrounded by a shiny silver rim. The perfume itself is tinted with a rosy tea color and the perfume bottle is refillable (available at select Mugler counters). Unfortunately, the bottle does not stand on its own, rather lying flat on its side; however, it certainly is very unique and exquisite.

The Scent:
If you've ever smelled the original Thierry Mugler Angel (read my full review here), you know it's a one-of-a-kind scent that you will never forget. It's without a doubt a love-it or hate-it fragrance for anyone who's ever had a whiff. Like Angel, Angel Muse also has the same intoxicating vibe; however, Muse is a more subdued version, albeit still very strong.

Top Notes: Pink peppercorn, grapefruit.
Heart Notes: Hazelnut cream.
Base Notes: Vetiver, patchouli.

This perfume has a very sweet, almost candy-like profile due to the hazelnut cream. Mixed with the vetiver and patchouli though, the sweetness is tinged with a contrasting earthiness. Although boasting a much smaller list of notes, Angel Muse embodies the essence of the original Angel. However, it has just a bit more fruity freshness from the grapefruit. To me, this scent is essentially baby Angel. If you loved the original you will adore this for a more casual and playful occasion and if you found the original a bit too intense then you may really dig this one. However, if Angel was a no-no for you then I don't think Angel Muse will change your mind about this iconic and unapologetically bold scent.

Theirry Mugler fragrances are available in stores at The Bay, Nordstrom, and Shoppers.
