New Release: Mugler Angel Muse


WHAT I SMELL:  Angel Muse goes on the skin all sweet, nutty and über creamy; it lies on your skin as if was applied like butter to toast.  The perfume is sweet, but not sugary; instead it’s more gourmand.  As the perfume develops, that creamy nutty buttery concoction moves to the less creamy, but the projection begins to grow and with it the patchouli comes front and center with a pulsating rhythm of brown sugar and vetiver which helps to keep the perfume from going full on sweet.  As it continues to develop, a tonka and vanilla note comes forward which helps to give the perfume some needed depth.  In the end, the perfume resides in a warmed cocoon of semi sweet-comfort and ultimately after many hours, Angel Muse ends up feeling like a comfy musky vanilla pillow.  But best of all Angel Muse is a bright and happy scent and that’s sure to make you smile.
