Victoria's Secret has launched Victoria's Secret Angel, a new fragrance for women. Angel follows Bombshell Seduction, which launched earlier this month.
The perfect balance between vibrant freshness and sultry warmth, this new eau de parfum captures all the thrill, glamour and spotlight that a new Victoria’s Secret Angel experiences.
The notes include plum, violet, pink pepper, gardenia, amber, musk and agarwood.
Victoria's Secret Angel is available in 75 ml Eau de Parfum for $59.

Actually, you know, I’m thinking I might at the very least want to smell this.
Can’t hurt! I admit I haven’t smelled any lately. I did think that Intimes collection was nice, but it must not have been a good fit w/ their customers because it disappeared.
Nope, we get asked about it all the time, more than any other fragrance/collection. Sometimes our fragrances regurgitate into something else:
VS Fantasies Ravishing Love = Beauty Rush Wink Wink
VS Secret Garden Sweet Daydream = VS Fantasies Wild Scarlet
exactly the same
We may bring back the parfums intimes for the semi annual sale. Our store in particular had a ton of Velvet and Cashmere at the last sale. We just brought back Basic Instinct, Ooh La La, Breathless, and So In Love for the holidays.
Pink pepper and Oud(agarwood). They are definitely in the now.
Whereas my response was surprise that they didn’t already have a scent called Angel. After all, how long have they had the “Angel collection,” etc? (But yes, all shock and delighted surprise at the pink pepper. )
So far as I can remember, they’ve had Dream Angels but never just “Angel”. I would have thought Mugler owned the trademark for Angel.
I think that’s why they are referring to it as “Victoria’s Secret Angel”. Tricky!
Actually, this one doesn’t sound half bad, and I agree with Robin about the Intimes collections, which was quite nice. Might have to go sniff this. It’s usually worth it to see the look on the SA’s faces when a woman “of certain age” walks into their shop. Snicker.
you fancy, huh?
Do you really think that is true oud? Doesn’t oud generally drive up the prices for a perfume? That seems pretty cheap. Hmm… I’m interested but skeptical.
No, I would assume it’s a synthetic.
Interesting name…. ; ) I know someone who just bought this thinking it was TM Angel. Oops? Or maybe, that was the intention ….
Not being of the push up bra/thong panty wearing set, LOL, I rarely go into VS, but decided to wander in to see what new scents they had. Along with the requisite plum/spun sugar/vanilla/amber/fruity floral fragrances they have wall-to-wall, I spotted Angel and thought what the heck? A couple of sprays and a few minutes later–Wowzers! It’s a rush of muted sweet musky florals that quickly settles on my skin into a soft, warm, muskiness that is almost gourmand in nature. Definitely one of the better fragrances from VS that I’ve tried in a long time…
I work as an SA at Victoria’s Secret, and ordinarily I find the limited nature of our “perfumes” to be frustrating at best. I hate selling them because I hate lying about how much I like them. But Victoria’s Secret Angel is actually really lovely, and I was taken by surprise when I smelled it during the beauty floorset. Soft flowers and ripe plum, with a haze of ambery musk and a barely discernible touch of peppery oud. It’s the kind of perfume you’d expect to smell trailing behind a chic twenty-something brunette wearing a lacy LBD under her Burberry trench. Although I can’t really call it elegant, it is most definitely glamorous. It has pretty good sillage, too, especially if you layer with the lotion. I get compliments on it everywhere I go. Finally, a perfume I can wear to work that doesn’t give me a headache.
That’s funny, I work at VS as well and Angel (aside from Rapture) literally makes me vomit.
No…i’m not being dramatic….
I think it’s the amber. It’s kinda brash (one of our “screechy” ones as someone else put it). I certainly DON’T lie to customers when they ask about our fragrances. For example, when they pick up VS Hot–perfectly fitting name; it actually smells hot, I sweat when I smell it–I tell them calmly to put it back down and walk away haha! Most of our fragrances are not categorized correctly (warm, fruity-floral, etc) either. Angel has been a huge hit though, it’s just not for me, I suppose.
What’s your vendetta against VS anyways robin? I love this website (I visit quite frequently). I’m far from biased about our stuff, but if there’s any fragrances you consistently take shots at, it’s VS. Not that you owe me or anyone else an explaination. I just don’t hear any real feedback other than what you hate about VS all together, or how you haven’t been in there for forever.
Gosh, what makes you think I have a “vendetta” against VS? I like some of them, I said so above. Many of their fragrances are too sweet / fruity for me, but that’s true of many brands, maybe even most mainstream lower priced brands. I also think their release schedule is kind of crazy — I don’t keep an accurate count, but they’re one of the worst (along with BBW) with releasing fragrances very quickly and then abandoning them if they don’t do well, and I think they have now shot past YSL to take first place in number of flankers. That isn’t the sort of fragrance business I’m likely to be fond of or loyal to, but not liking a company’s way of doing business hardly qualifies as a “vendetta”.
But the reason I don’t bother going in there is mostly that I can’t get samples — if I can’t get samples, I can’t review something. I know some reviewers work from blotters, or try something in store and review it, but I don’t have a good enough memory to work that way.
Wow, that’s too bad about the samples. We have boxes upon boxes of Incredible, Heavenly, Gorgeous, and Forever (newest addition to Dream Angels Collection) samples behind the cash wrap. Granted, they’re free with a purchase, but depending on the store, they may just give you one (they’re one cent). I know we would, especially if we knew you’d blog about it (whether it was a good or bad review), plus they’re starting to clutter the counters…
“Vendetta” was too strong a word (apologies). But I did sense a dissatisfaction with the company as a whole, in a way that seemed unfair (perhaps more from commenters than you). I was simply curious to what extent. Fair enough explaination, and thanks for the quick response
I know there are samples, they just won’t give me any
