Thierry Muglar Angel Muse Perfume Review

Let me begin by saying that I'm not a huge fan of the original angel at all. But I'm so happy about the way the perfumer Qentin Bich created this magical perfume. It has that ANGEL DNA in th background but enough oomph to stand up on it's own as a new fragrance. I won't describe this as a flanker at all.

After around 13 angel flankers came, Angel Muse. I have never smelled anything remotely similar to this before. Love, love the bottle. It is described to be shaped like a cosmic pebble. The juice is a warm amber colour.
 Muse is very different from you regular run of the mill gourmands. Hazelnut is the main accord mixed in with a bitter cocoa cream.  The patchouli in it is very subtle. I do not detect any citrus that's states in the opening notes. Not a hint of grapefruit. The vetiver makes it earthy and unique. I'm surprised at how much I love this even though it contains patchouli which I cant stand. The silage is a powerhouse as expected from all the Muglars, and the longevity is 12 plus hours on me.
Creamy hazulnutty swirls without being overly sweet or cloying. A beautiful Fall/Winter fragrance.

TOP NOTES: Grapefruit, Pink peppers
MID NOTES: Hazulnut cocoa cream
BASE NOTES: Vetiver, Patchouli

Black Opium perfume review

Fans of the original Opium will be disappointed with this latest addition. It has no DNA of the previous one. So keep in mind that it is by no means a flanker but a whole new scent.
I came across this one in my search for the perfect coffee scent as black opium was rumoured to be a strong coffee perfume. I have finished more than half the bottle but I still couldn't detect a coffee note. What I do get is a warm vanilla enveloped in a hint of patchouli and a light jasmine.
But coffee lovers do not despair. When my friend wore it, it smelled heavenly. Like a fluffy frothy cappuccino. so depends on body chemistry.
This is definitely a fall/winter scent. Im just disappointed that the coffee note didn't show up on my skin. Its a beautiful warm fragrance and reminds me of a few others like `la vista `belle and Bath and bodyworks cashmere glow.

 I do like the bottle. Its very edgy with a thick glass moulding.
All you lovers of gourmands, sweet, warm fragrances this bottle holds a treat for you.
So lets dream of cozy fall nights and crackling fireplaces.

Top Notes: pink pepper, orange blossom, pear
Middle Notes: coffee, Jasmine, bitter orange, Licorice
Base Notes: Vanilla, patchouli, cedar, cashmere wood
MOOD: Date night. casual cafes winter, fall.
