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.

Thierry Mugler celebrates 10 years of the ‘Alien’

Launched in 2005, the Alien fragrance by Thierry Mugler is celebrating this year a decade of existence and success. For the occasion, the bottle will be revisited and take the form of a talisman.

Alien is the very essence of femininity, it’s femininity incarnate. And femininity is a gift from heaven, a generosity, an instinctive intelligence.

Mugler’s Alien fragrance for women, the brand’s second most popular perfume after Angel, will undergo a makeover for fall 2015 and will be outfitted to celebrate. The bottle is transformed into a talisman inspired by amethysts, designed to look like a precious stone. The ‘stone’ is held by a gold-colored pedestal decorated with several claws.

The Alien elixir is created around three olfactory axes. The scent opens on white amber notes with cashmeran wood essence associated with sambac jasmine from India. Since its launch 10 years ago, Alien has been transformed into several versions: Alien Essence Absolue, Alien Eau Extraordinaire, Alien Aqua Chic and Alien Eau Luminescente.

Not Only In The Dark

Lancome La Nuit Trèsor L’Eau de Parfum

Earlier this year, Lancôme added a new scent to the Trèsor family, called ‘La Nuit Trèsor’. A seductive and bewitching fragrance housed in a multi-faceted diamond rose bottle, this fragrance boasts notes of black rose, vanilla orchid, incense, patchouli, and lychee praline.

Lancômes La Nuit Tresor comes in a gorgeous multi-faceted diamond-shaped bottle, so it needs to be rested on its side. The rim of the glass is tinted black to represent the black rose element of the scent. The perfume itself is tinted a warm shade of pink abricot, which contrasts nicely with the black. Tied around the neck of the bottle is a ribbon made into a rose bearing the La Nuit Trèsor logo…

Upon first whiff, La Nuit Trèsor smelled very familiar and after another long, deep whiff, I realized that this fragrance smells like Thierry Mugler’s Angel and Chopard’s Wish (that ‘diamond’)!  La Nuit Trèsor bears very similar notes as Angel, like: patchouli, praline, candy notes, vanilla ao.. And as Chopard’s Wish like: patchouli, vanille, orchid ao.

For those people who like these two scents, they have a new one to love! I also think that a lot of people will call it a much more demure, or lighter version of Angel, thus making it a lot more pleasant… For sure yoy don’t have to wait ’till dark. You can use it all day long. A true new Lancôme classic!

Top notes: Pear

Heart notes: Vanilla orchid, black rose

Base notes: Patchouli, incense, vanilla, praline, papyrus

Important tip: Like Thierry Mugler’s Angel and many others, I can’t say it enough times (and I will repeat it here over and over again!), when you use this fragrances: don’t spray it for to close! Keep a distance from around 30cm…. at least! Walk through it… Give it some air! And notice the difference!!!
