Thierry Mugler Angel Muse Eau de Parfum Review

Long-time readers will no doubt have read at some point that my Mother is a decade long fan of Thierry Mugler Angel Eau de Parfum (a scent I forever associate with her) and I, a lover of the deep tones of Thierry Mugler Alien Eau de Parfum. Out of respect and memory association, I do not wear Angel; it is my Mother's signature scent and I'd like to keep it that way but the newly launched Thierry Mugler Angel Muse Eau de Parfum changes everything. The fragrance rules so to speak are go out the window.

Yes Thierry Mugler Angel Muse Eau de Parfum shares certain notes with the original Angel fragrance but it manages to do so without being instantly recognizable as the younger sister of such an iconic scent. Angel Muse has its own identity, it is fun, sweet and intoxicating. This is not a fragrance for those who like soft, mellow scents; this is for those who like to, and want to make a statement - Thierry Mugler Angel Muse Eau de Parfum is not easily forgotten.

The bottle that contains the sweet elixir that is Thierry Mugler Angel Muse Eau de Parfum is a little more stripped back, well compared to the usual stylings of Thierry Mugler bottles at least - it still features the space-like design elements we know and love from the Mugler house. The pebble-like bottle is both modern and youthful in design, it should appeal to a new generation of fragrance wearers and Mugler fans alike. Personally I rather like that it is less bulky (not to mention refillable) than previous Mugler designs, making it ideal for stashing inside even the smallest of handbags - yes I've somewhere along the line became practical and I don't quite know how to process the information.

Thierry Mugler Angel Muse Eau de Parfum Review

The best way I can think of to describe Thierry Mugler Angel Muse Eau de Parfum is a youthful, almost candied and yet not overly sweet interpretation of the original Angel scent. It is bold yet sophisticated but not as deep nor musky in tone as Angel Eau de Parfum. If woody gourmand fragrances are your go-to scent category, this is one you won't want to miss out on; the fresh and juicy notes of grapefruit and pink berries, mingle with a hint of hazelnut cream and sensual notes of vetiver and patchouli for something that is both unusual and unforgettable. I will say that this fragrance may be one that divides scent wearers into two camps: love or loathe (hence Mugler's #HatetoLove campaign) but one thing I'm sure we will all agree on is that it is not boring.

A new sensory classic in the making.
