The Everlasting Appeal of Thierry Mugler’s Angel
It’s one of those fragrances you recognize immediately, even as a passing whiff. It makes a statement as soon as you enter a room, and lingers ever-so-subtly as you leave, with rich gourmand elements acting as a reminder to the scent’s allure and elegance. The iconic star-shaped flacon serves as a constant reminder that your possibilities are as limitless as the ever-expanding universe, and combined with the bold aroma, evoke a fearless, liberated vibe. Decadent chocolate, honey, caramel, and vanilla mingle with heady patchouli, tonka bean, and amber for a fragrance so enchanting, you only need a single word to identify it — Angel.
Created by Thierry Mugler in 1992, the scent has been a classic for decades, and was added to the FiFi Award Hall of Fame (basically, the Oscars for fragrances) in 2007, solidifying its place as an iconic perfume. Most recently, the brand named Georgia May Jagger as its new face — a fitting tribute, considering Jagger’s mother Jerry Hall was the very first supermodel spokesperson of the scent.
“Angel is very connected to my childhood, yet it continues to fascinate me as much as ever,” Jagger says in a press release. “It’s very exciting to become the new face of the Angel woman, 19 years after my mother! For me, the Mugler brand embodies a strong and confident woman, as well as a form of creativity you cannot classify.”
While the scent can make a major impact when sprayed directly onto your pulse points, for daytime wear, we recommend enlisting the cloud method — or, spraying a cloud of fragrance into the air, then walking through, allowing the scent to fall in a gentle veil around you.
