Weekend Fun: Angel Muse Perfume Review

After almost a month of embroilment in serious environmental concerns here on my sand dune, I needed a completely frivolous moment in order to lighten up a little. In fact, my family and friends insisted on this. Fortunately, the House of Mugler came to the rescue with a sample of the new Angel flanker, Angel Muse, in the mail.

My longtime readers know that I have a deep sentimental attachment to Angel, even if I wear it only rarely. The backstory is here:

So I always review the newest Angel somewhere in the Virtual World. Here is my take on Angel Muse:

I own the Taste of Fragrance Angel, which is Angel spiked with dark chocolate. I don't wear it often, but when I have a craving for it, it's a freakin' awesome sillage monster of epic proportions. I think of it as a friendly Kaiju.

That's my Angel, a Sillage Monster!
Angel Muse substitutes a gentle hazelnut milk chocolate for the dark chocolate, and as a result, Angel Muse is more of a wombat than a kaiju.

Muse is absolutely Angel, but relatively soft and cuddly compared to the other flankers. Mugler has used the hazelnut cream note before, and it's lovely. I like Muse so much more than Angel Eau Sucree', which I thought was dull and perhaps even a little trashy. Muse has a sense of fun and twisted elegance. And House of Mugler's choice of Georgia May Jagger is inspired!


  1. Hi Marla,
    I loved your beautiful Angel story on Perfumesmellinthings. I've never been able to pull off Angel myself but perhaps Angel Muse...

  2. Hi, Azar! I'm glad you liked the story, it's the reason I wear Angel from time to time (or scent a clay bead or handkerchief with it and sniff that). I'm actually an Alien Fangirl in MuglerLand, but Angel is our family perfume. Angel Muse is much easier to wear than Angel, so you might want to give it a go sometime!
