What if Angel was a chocolate?

For twenty-five years, the absolute glamour of the iconic Mugler fragrance Angel has captivated the senses into a unique olfactory vortex.

Nicolas Cloiseau has captured the deliciously surprising notes of this fragrance, blending bergamot, red fruits, praline, vanilla and patchouli, and interpreted its three accords to create three rare chocolates, vibrating with the legendary Angel notes.

CELESTIAL –  First tasting note, Top note.

A delicate fruit paste with a crisp acidulous attack of moist mandarin, followed by the citrus notes of elegant bergamot with lemon zest, gently tempered by a milk chocolate ganache.

DELICIOUS – Middle tasting note, Heart Note.

Nostalgic vanilla cotton candy with red fruits and slivers of moist cranberries rev up the delicate layer of praliné with notes of biscuits and nuts enrobed in a layer of dark chocolate.

VOLUPTUOUS – Final tasting note, Base Note.

An intense patchouli attack with woody and vanilla notes, almost smoky, in a warm sensual dark chocolate ganache with notes of honey and vanilla bourbon.

STAR – A nod to Angel…

A star with chocolate from Madagascar featuring acidulous notes of red fruits on the palate then notes of nuts persist.

Penhaligon’s has decide to tease and tantalize us with a brand new gourmand fragrance that will inspired by the English tradition of afternoon tea. The fragrance will also draw inspiration from transitions, specifically the time of the day when day turns into evening and the thaw when cold winter finally gives way for spring.

Created by Master Perfumer Olivier Cresp, the fragrance is called Equinox Bloom and will feature an olfactory palette inspired by the quintessentially English tradition of afternoon tea, and the transitional moment when day turns to evening and when cold Winter yields to Spring. Expect notes of Chantilly, Frangipani and Brown Sugar blended with violet leaves, orange blossom absolute and jasmine sambac, with Benzoin Siam and Ambrox.

During one of my recent visits to London, I enjoyed an incredible brunch in a smart, refined place, where the magnificent atmosphere of the rooms, furnished with opulent floral compositions, ensnared my senses almost at once. While admiring the floral scenery, my brunch included delightful toasts topped with honey and marmalade and these gourmand facets inspired me to bring to Equinox Bloom a trendy, modern inflexion to the generous floral bouquet. To me, this luxurious and abundant refinement reflects Penhaligon’s generosity in fragrances in a perfect ways.
