Thierry Mugler’s Liqueur de Parfums

August 24, 2009

Angel Liqueur de Parfum is Thierry Mugler‘s latest addition to its Angel series. Launched this August, this magical potion is aged in casks made of cherry wood. The same luxurious fragrance emanates in the star-shaped flacon but this time, more refined and distinct than the original.

This Parfum is transformed like a fine Cognac, maturing in a cherrywood barrel. This sensual elixir – truly a “liqueur de parfum”. The elegant black and silver packaging echoes the refined pairing of haute perfumery with the world of luxury spirits.”

The classic Alien perfume has also come up with a limited edition fragrance to pair with Angel’s Liqueur de Parfum. Aged in oak casks just like rum, this flanker is dominated by rum notes, what else?

“The original Alien eau de Parfum is aged in oak casks with an exhilirating and carnal result. The sensual amber-colored fragrance radiates warmth and light from its clear-faceted glass bottle which echoes the effect of pure crystal”

B*Men by Thierry Mugler

B*Men is a woody-oriental version of the earlier released masculine gourmand fragrance, A*Men. If A*Men is embellished with syrupy-sweet gourmand accords, B*Men mimics the same delicious notes but with emphasis on woods and spices. This fragrance creates a more wearable  scent, less sweet and more earthy. It’s the best candidate for warmer days .

If you take a closer look at the notes, you’ll get nuances of fruit notes and rhubarb at the top, sequioa and spice in the middle and amber and vetiver at the base. This slightly sweet juice has the same potency of the other Thierry Mugler fragrances. Projection is great. Longevity is superb. Sillage couldn’t have been better. Just a word of caution though, B*Men might be a watered-down version of A*Men but lightness doesn’t mean it fades out easily. Expect the scent to hold for hours.

Perfume reviews have been generally positive. Men who are hooked on gourmand scents just love the way how B*Men was concocted. According to one fan,”This starts rather deliciously confusing with a sour fruit/ peanut butter coconut smelling blast. I first wore this in the summer in Colorado, when it was rainy, cloudy, crisp, and cool one day, and hot and dry the next, I couldn’t help but feel that B*Men was the perfect scent for those days, because B*Men is a shape shifter of sorts. Hot weather will enhance the dry, dusty, red sand impression given by the amber and spices, while cool weather brings out the sensation I receive later on in its development of pine needles, wet leaves and wet earth, as if walking through a forest at dusk just after a cold rain storm. Infused into every step of B*Men’s development is a rich gourmand sweetness. This fragrance is not only fascinating, but delicious, warm, and comfortable.”

B*Men has a character of its own, distinct and comely, just like the other wonderful fragrances from Thierry Mugler.


Angel by Thierry Mugler

Angel Perfume

Angel was the first perfume introduced by Thierry Mugler. Its fragrance is reminiscent of Mugler’s childhood: innocent, playful and dreamy. Designed by perfumers Olivier Cresp and Yves de Chirin, its top notes burst with a lush blend of melon, coconut, mandarin orange, cassia, jasmine, bergamot and cotton candy; middle notes are composed of rich honey, apricot, blackberry, plum, orchid, peach, jasmine, lily-of-the-valley, red berries and rose; base notes are made of bold scents of Tonka bean, amber and vanilla, patchouli, musk, dark chocolate and caramel.

“Angel, which launched a new fragrance category called the “oriental gourmands,” seduces us with angelic flavors found deep within the heart of our memories, as well as sensual and passionate notes.” (Sephora)

The fragrance starts off with an overwhelming dose of sweet smelling combination of chocolate, vanilla and honey. Its dry down transforms into musky and clean feel. The patchouli component gives off a distinct aroma. Some people love it yet some find it offensively overpowering.  A tad heavy at first smell, customers’ reviews sum it up with one suggestion: use it sparingly. One spritz is enough as the fragrance will melt on your skin.

Based on the mixed reviews from Angel users, the fragrance reacts differently from one person to another.  A wealth of emotions permeates with every whiff of Angel: either you love it and crave for more or hate it and not bother with scent ever again. Each perfume concoction bears Thierry Mugler’s penchant for celestial creativity.

One Angel user quipped:

“Angel is one of those perfumes that enjoy a distinct status. You could spot a person wearing angel in a crowd. It’s a perfume that you would like or hate and be warned you need to be confident to wear this.
It isn’t a sweet perfume as quite a few people describe .Albeit it opens with a cotton candy note and you could also smell berries and a negligible hint of rose ensconced in chocolate and vanilla. It is strong, lasting and would be wise to be used in small measures as some people report headaches.”

The Thierry Mugler label used to be one of the recognized haute couture in the fashion circle. The business closed down its couture division in 2003 and focused on its fragrance division. Now, Thierry Mugler is best known for its signature fragrance, Angel perfume.
