It would be fair to say I can be a bit of a magpie at times. Imagine my surprise when this jar of Angel perfuming body cream literally landed in my porch with a loud thud following the swift actions of the postman in a hurry to finish his morning shift. Fortunately this beautiful designed container suffered no damage and upon unwrapping it, I stared at it in admiration for a few days before opening the lid.
Thierry Mugler’s Angel has quite a unique scent and layering it with a body cream will, as you will know, enhance and prolong the wear of the fragrance. This cream not only adds a layer of scent, it is also moisturising. Very luxurious, aromatic and indulgent. I won’t regurgitate my thoughts on the scent because you can read about it here but if you adore this fragrance, you will love the accompanying body cream.
To look at, it’s quite a show piece, isn’t it? One for the dressing table. The two stars symbolise Mugler’s infamous Angel design with a sparkling silver trail of a shooting star around the jar. Open the lid and a rich Angel blue cream is inside a smaller container within the huge jar.
There are three other Mugler scents encapsulated as body creams – Alien, Womanity, Alien Essence – but it’s Angel which is aesthetically more pleasing to the eye.
Available in a jar of 200ml, the decorative looking Angel Perfuming Body Cream is £48, which is slightly more dearer than the other Mugler creams but you are paying that little bit extra for a pretty thing.
