Angel Mugler is a famous and unique fragrance created by Thierry Mugler in 1992 and it was the very first perfume of the Mugler’s olfactive family. There have been 4 iconic fragrances in the Angel Mugler’s world launched in the past. Angel Eau de Parfum was launched in 1992, Angel Eau de Toilette in 2011, Angel Eau Sucree in 2014 and Angel Muse in 2016. During these 25 years, Angel has been loved and appreciated for how attractive it has always been in all the forms. Angel invents a night perfuming ritual for sweet dreams, revising itself in the form of Angel Night Eau de Parfum.

 Angel Night Eau de Parfum

Angel Etoile des Reves or Angel Night Eau de Parfum (CAD $146 – 100ml) is described as a nighttime reinterpretation of Angel. It is Thierry Mugler’s iconic tender, delicious and bewitching fragrance, in a delicate, silky version that cradles the woman in the captivating wake of Angel all night. It can be sprayed generously on the sheets, loungewear and skin. The sublime spherical bottle features an atomizer, borrowed from boudoir tradition, that lends the perfuming ritual even more delicacy and preciousness.

Top notes of this fragrance are Bergamot, middle notes are Praline and Hedione, base notes are PAtchouli, Vanilla, and Musk.

There is a companion of the fragrance which is the Angel Perfuming Body Cream (CAD $120 – 200ml) which is very rich and has creamy soft texture. Mugler Angel Perfuming Body cream features the delicious, soothing Angel Eau de Parfum fragrance with intense Diffusion System. The top notes of the cream are Bergamot, middle notes are Red Berries and base notes are Patchouli and Vanilla.

 Angel Night Eau de Parfum

I have been using these two most of the days before bedtime and it really uplifts the mood. The cream is very rich and the fragrance stays on more than usual time on the body if layered over the body cream. I do not have any issues when it comes to fragrance in my body products and I have been enjoying using this in my routine. The star-shaped design on the body cream jar looks very beautiful. The Angel Night Eau de Parfum is slightly softer and less sweet than the Angel Eau de Parfum. It is beautiful and for me, is wearable any time of the day, not just bedtime.

 Angel Night Eau de Parfum

Mugler Angel Night Eau de Parfum and Mugler Angel Perfuming Body Cream are available at Hudson’s Bay, Shoppers Drug Mart, Jean Coutu, Murale, and Nordstrom.
