Most Helpful Positive Review Smells Like Warm Chocolate
This is the only perfume I've ever worn that smells like one thing to women and something totally different to men.
This was given to me years ago by an ex. He swore it smelled like warm chocolate. I never thought that it did and apparently, most women don't think it does either. However, almost every man that tells I smell great goes on to tell me I smell like warm chocolate. If I don't wear this perfume and wear another, I don't get those compliments. Only with this perfume.
I've worn it for 10 years and the comments have been consistent. This is also a great layering perfume. Spray this in the between the breasts, elbows, knees and then put on your regular perfume.
Works great no matter how you use it. I also use their hair mist as well. Can't speak highly enough about this product.
As for the refillable aspect, check to see if that's an option in your area. Not all areas offer this service.
Most Helpful Critical Review I got a small sample bottle from Ulta
What a peculiar fragrance... When I first sprayed this on, I thought I had spilled some other product on my desk. Surely that heavy vaseline smell that flooded the room couldn't be coming from the scent called 'Angel'... After concluding that nothing had fallen over, only then did I decide that smell was, in fact, from the perfume.
The smell itself was not entirely unpleasant, but it was not something you would necessarily call 'pretty' either. Every attribute you might associate with an angel could likely be considered an antonym to this. It is neither light nor subtle, but dark and almost pervasive.
But after awhile, the scent changes. After maybe an hour or so, the medicinal qualities fade into something sweeter. The power, mystery, and peculiarity of it all remains, but the seductive and more beautiful notes finally come out.
It isn't something that I'd buy, the scent itself is just too strange for me. However, I'm really glad that I did get to try this sample. It is a really different experience; I can see why some people hate it and others adore it. I'll probably just keep the sample to myself and wear it on days that I don't plan on going out.

I was really hoping to love this perfume and I think it's wonderful that the bottle is refillable. When it is sprayed on it's very heavy, doesn't last on clothing, and smells to me like raisins. I almost can't stand myself after putting it on. I def think it also smells like an older persons fragrance.

A little goes a long way! Scent is very melodic gives a vanilla or woodsy base.

This haunting lingering smell as of an old bathroom trash bag needed changing. Repulsive.
Travel size star Angel breaks easily
LunarLady from Tulsa, OK
This is the second time in 2 years that I bought the Angel star travel size bottle of perfume and both times the tip of the star broke off and perfume spilled out completely. This year it was a Christmas gift to my granddaughter purchased at Ulta and hand-carried to her. When she opened Christmas eve the tip was broken off and the bottle was completely empty! Since she lived in another city and had no receipt, Ulta refused to replace with another bottle even with an online banking receipt that it was purchased at Ulta.

This literally smells like bug spray. I wanted to like it because the bottle is so pretty, but it stinks so bad.
Peacock from Hillsboro
Smells like an old lady got a fresh diaper change with mass amounts of baby powder. The smell is so powdery and unpleasant. I love this brand and their other fragrances but THIS is not it. Please don't waste your money on this, it's honestly offensive that they let this go out on the market. You couldn't pay me to wear this.
Momo from Atlanta, GA
You either love or hate this. The dry down is much better than the initial spray. The patchouli could be dialed back a bit, however, I do love this perfume mid-winter.
LOVE LOVE LOVE
V from Utah
I have to admit, the very first time I smelled this at store, I thought it smelled so bad. After about 30 mins, I got back in my car and I kept smelling something really good. I realized it was my hand where I sprayed it. The dry down is what really smells good. You can definitely smell the patchouli, it smells powdery, definitely warm and and spicy. I have been wearing it daily since. I am in my late 30s, I do think it's more on the mature side. I used to love the fruity and more candy scents but lately I've been finding myself attracted to the more powder, floral, spicy, and vanilla scents. If you own this and not like it, I would say give it a couple more tries…
Lauren from Milwaukee
It smells like all the old ladies sprayed their perfume in a nursing home at the same time.
Pretty bottle - but awful scent
Katie from Florida
This smell is so pungent and unpleasant. I couldn't get over how bad it was and when I told my friends they thought I was overreacting until they smelled it. It's very strong and just smells awful. The packaging is beautiful though. I like the Alien perfume much better for the Thierry Mugler line
Stacy from California
This is the worst perfume on the market. Nothing about this product is pleasant. The lingering smell is so nauseating and hard to get rid of !!

Out of all my perfumes, this is my husband's favorite.
Angel?? More like Demon
Mariah from New Haven, CT
This perfume smells like an old lady crawled out of the pits of hell… i tried it on in the store and came here just to review how bad this is. after abrasively scrubbing my skin for the past 10 minutes i can safely say i never want to smell it again in my life. unless you want to smell like you just walked out of a nursing home i don't recommend.
ewww old lady
Caityk13 from Washington
this smells like the worst old lady perfume ever
Formula changed and it's weaker
syl from Mesa, AZ
This used to be an incredible scent. I would get stopped all the time. I would get a bottle for my birthday, Christmas. . . so I had a good supply for a few years. I went to ULTA to buy a bottle last week after running out and I am beyond sad, angry and truly disappointed. For starters, the refill station at ULTA is gone. The formula has changed and it does smell more powdery as others have noted. I won't wear it. It absolutely does smell like stale old lady. It last for about 2 hours. Years ago I could spray it on me and it would last through the day, albeit fades after a few hours, but anyone sitting next to me usually leaned in to ask what I was wearing. Even the following day I could still smell it on my clothes. Last purchase for sure. ULTA might as well drop the line. Anyone who was a regular customer of the original formula is not going to repurchase this and anyone who realizes they smell like a powdery, stale old lady is going to be revolted. I would have gladly accepted a price increase rather than lose what used to be a premium, top shelf scent.
Smells better on skin after a few minutes
Caroline from Las Vegas
First smelling this I thought like it smelled like an old lady perfume and way to strong, I was so disappointed. Then, I thought maybe it just needed to be on skin so I tried it and it smelled worse I almost immediately washed it off BUT I sat with it for a minute and it transformed into an incense-y smell kind of like you're in a spiritual shop. It was still too strong for me but I'm looking forward to revisiting this with less product.
Love love love
Becca from Orlando
Honestly it's such a beautiful unique scent. I love it. I also loved it so much that I gifted it to my friend for her birthday and she fell in love as well. Worth it!!
Laurel from Los Angeles
I got this as a sample and BLECK! It is SO strong and smells powdery and old lady-ish (no offense to any old ladies out there).
Absolutely LOVE and so do all my friends, guys and gals!!
L.C. from Wheaton, IL
In 52 years I've never been complimented more on a perfume I was wearing!!! I absolutely LOVE Angel (eau de parfum). Angel is heaven sent!!!!
Amy Lynn from Milton, PA
First, when I first tested this perfume in store, I thought it was disgusting smelling. But an hour later after I left i noticed that the dry down scent smelled so good. It is hard to explain the scent. Fruity is not one of them. It is a bit smoky maybe? This is one of those perfumes where you either hate it or love it I think. This is also not a perfume anyone should blond buy.
Bought by accident
BostonBeautee from Boston MA
I was trying to buy another version of angel, but got the original by accident. I know women that have been wearing this for years. My brother actually loves it for men. I was disappointed to have the wrong fragrance when I got home, but it's growing on me.
Erika from IN
This perfume is everything. I will agree with what a lot of people are saying - that it's very different. It's bold. One spritz is all I need, and at first, it is quite strong and almost peppery. However, after it dries down, I'm enveloped in a warm, sultry, chocolate/caramel scent with the tiniest hint of sweet fruit and vanilla. The patchouli is there as well, but it isn't overpowering. This perfume is unique. It's delicious. It's intoxicating.
calicatmom951 from socal
why are there soooo many good comments about this sent? i don't understand how anyone can like ANY of the Mugler scents, this was labeled as "sweet" at Ulta and it's anything but sweet, it's hard to describe the smell... OLD, rancid peppery,powdery perfume, idk , I am obviously not a verified buyer cuz I wouldn't never buy this! even my boyfriend got grossed out
Do not blind buy!
Maria from Crown city Ohio
I blind bought this today and absolutely hated it! I've never returned a perfume before, but this perfume gave me a migraine and it smelled like sweat and dirt. Highly suggest smelling before buying! Not for everyone
