Rose Angel, the fourth (and reportedly the last) fragrance in the Angel Garden of Stars series from Thierry Mugler, will debut in April.
It was created by perfumer Olivier Cresp and has notes of Bulgarian rose and patchouli. (via cosmeticnews)
Have a great Friday! I'll be back with a perfume review tomorrow afternoon.
Update: Per Olivier Cresp,
"It's a saga, with the best one for the end to finish the story," Cresp explained, adding he reread Angel's formula to incorporate a strong combination of Bulgarian rose oil notes with patchouli he originally used. Cresp said the scent has a fruitiness like a plum, the harmony of patchouli and rose and traces of pink pepper.
Thierry Mugler Rose Angel is available in 25 and 50 ml Eau de Parfum. (via wwd)
I think the rose one might work best of all with the Angel angle. And I love the color of the bottle.
Signed, One Who Loves Violets, not Roses, but Still
I love violets *and* roses, but not Angel…so no surprise that I have not loved any of the Garden of Stars so far. Will try the new one anyway, you never know!
Oh, I so want this to smell amazing!! I love Angel and I love, love rose so I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
Thanks for the info.
You know, I thought they did a great job of capturing the floral topnotes in the Garden of Stars perfumes. I especially liked the peony & violet versions for about the first ten seconds or so.
Then the Angel smell came on strong and strangled everything. I'm afraid I'll never be a fan of anything Angel scented. I wish this collection consisted of simple soliflores with no Angel undertones. I think I would have loved them.
Yes, they were definitely still Angel! I guess that was the point, but I'm with you: less Angel, more of the floral notes & I would have liked them better.
Rose, patchouli and Angel… that might turn out as a chypre-gourmand, no?
C, Is Angel classified as a chypre? I'm surprised, I would have called it a gourmand oriental. But then I am not very well versed in the fragrance classification systems.
Totally just bought this today. I got a 1.7oz EDP for $10. It was the refill, but it was missing the funnel in the box. I did not care.
I think I like it. I tried it on my skin, but I still have yet to wear it for a whole day or anything. :]
Wow, fabulous price — congrats! I wouldn't care about the funnel either.
