Thierry Mugler’s Angel Sunesscence Bleu Lagon eau de toilette arrived at beauty counters February 2010 for the spring/summer season of 2010. Growing up, I have always loved the chocolate scent of Angel but strangely enough I never owned a bottle. Only indulging in samples given to me at the Thierry Mugler counter. I was going to buy the original Angel, but stumbled upon its limited edition sister Angel Sunesscence Bleu Lagon instead. I knew I need to pick a bottle of this baby up.
I love this rendition of Angel and have worn it almost everyday. Sunesscence Bleu Lagon is a lighter and flirtier version of the original gourmand Angel. The notes include: frozen star fruit, grapefruit, patchouli, vanilla and ginger flower. While Sunesscence Bleu Lagon has a hint of the original Angel’s scent of chocolate and patchouli, it is much fruitier, sweeter and sparkling. The initial blast of scent is very vanilla, fruity and citrusy: full of grapefruit. It has a very soft hint of chocolate and patchouli that is detectable but soften by the grapefruit and star fruit. After about three to four hours the scent settles to a softly sweet and spicy floral that is distinctively vanilla and the spicy floral is probably the ginger flower.
On me the lasting power of Angel Sunessence Bleu Lagon is about 6-7 hours. This scent just smells prettier and prettier as the hours go by. An added bonus is that the bottle is stunningly beautiful: a hand-crafted clear turquoise star shaped bottle. According to the SA at the counter, all Thierry Mugler Angel bottles are individually hand-made. The blue truly looks like the waters of Blue Lagoon. I only wished that I have a display stand for me to display this beauty upright on my dresser.
Angel Sunessence Bleu Lagon is a 50mL non refillable star, unlike the original permanent Angel, which is fillable.
