Now, before I start writing this post, I have to warn you that I’m not a perfume expert. I just like to smell nice, and I want a perfume to last for a long time without costing me an arm and a leg. Bonus points if people comment on how nice you smell. Well, this perfume got the bonus points!
My parent’s were recently in Gibraltar,(tax-free, i.e. perfume heaven) and asked me whether I wanted anything. I’d just ran out of my two everyday perfumes (Alien, also by Mugler, and Lady Million by Paco Rabanne), but I was curious to try Angel since I had loved Alien so much. And so my parents very kindly brought some Angel back for me.
My first reaction after spraying myself with a healthy dose was: “Okay, that’s powerful but… sweet?”, which I actually really like. And even my mother, who is never quick with compliments about how I smell, actually said I smelt very nice on the first day I wore it. So, my friends, you cannot get much better than that. It has the Mama Holmes seal of approval!
I’m not sure whether I prefer it to Alien though, just because that smelt more “me”? So I think that next time I’d go for Alien, or my trusty Lady Million which I think made me smell like a rich lady with taste – I always felt a bit extravagant wearing it. But Angel still gets a thumbs up from me, and it’s how I’ll be smelling for the next year until I use it up, so if you know me, make sure you get a good whiff next time you see me (unless I’ve been walking the dogs, in that case, just keep your distance).
