Ahhhh Angel! I have such a love hate relationship with you! Perhaps the new Mugler Angel Nova will help me to love more and hate a little less. Angel can be an overwhelming scent experience due the heavy dose of patchouli. That patchouli has a seriously hard kick and when you present it to someone like me who likes sweet gourmands it can be a really hard pill to swallow. Honestly, I’d rather bath in Flowerbomb than mist myself down with Angel. It’s just too harsh! Too loud! Too HEY HERE I AM! I wanna meet the man out there that actually thinks Angel is sexy. I always feel like Angel is an intimidating force of nature that men probably smell and curl away in absolute agony when their girlfriend or wife wears it.

But if nothing else Thierry does know how to make good on the Angel juice and create other more interesting blends from it. Angel Muse? Totally love it! Completely different from the original Angel and quite lovely. This is why I never overlook an Angel release. I know Angel can make the haters a little wary of trying out something new and different with the same name but I promise you some Angel releases are good ones!

As with most fragrance launches Mugler always does a big push for Spring seasonal launches as Valentine’s Day nears. Angel Nova Eau de Parfum arrives just in time for the romantic season ahead. This is a fruity floral with notes of raspberry and rose but sadly, the base does contain akigalawood which is fractionated from patchouli oil. That akigalawood is going to make or break the fruitiness of the raspberry and the delicateness of the rose. It might compliment but not overwhelm the fruity floral notes or it might just take over them! It’s really hard to say with Mugler perfumes! They can go either way! We’ll all have to smell it and see how it turns out.

Mugler Angel Nova Eau de Parfum is available now!

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    I totally want to smell it. The Ysl mon Paris has
    Raspberry accord & I love that perfume. I agree with you though, most Angel perfume is pretty nauseating for me.

    I’m not very familiar with the Mugler fragrances. What are your thoughts on Alien Fusion? (“Mystical and remarkable, the Alien Fusion perfume is the result of a unique encounter between sensual notes of vanilla and spicier notes of cinnamon.”) It sounds intriguing to me. Have you ever tried it?

    • Isabella Muse

      Alien Fusion isn’t my favorite Alien but overall, the Aliens are great! They aren’t as harsh as Angel and the notes are softer yet dark and sexy! Alien Fusion is spicy and warm! Some people get the big red gum vibe from it! I don’t! To me it smells more like a warm woodsy vanilla with nice spiciness!

    I have a friend who wears Angel and it smells awesome on her and I love it on her, but not on me. I think super light fruity/citrus-y scents. Everybody has different body chemistry.

  • Paula

    My husband loves it when I wear Angel. It is incredibly strong, one teeny spritz on the back of my knees and I’m surrounded by the smell.

    • Isabella Muse

      that really all you need a tiny mist of it! It’s really a big, bold scent!

    Hi! Have you smelled this since you published this? It’s a strong fruity floral on 1000. The litchi come off strong and tart, then the scent of the raspberry with the rose softens a bit, Very long lasting!

    • Isabella Muse

      Hey Kia! How are you? Long time no speak! I haven’t! It sounds great. So no icky patchouli note?
