Thierry Mugler Angel Innocent

I find it a bit too ozonic to wear all the time, but it is a nice variation of Angel which I find heavy with patchouli and fruity gourmand notes. The original Angel was inspired by the smell of Christmas in Alsace--this version is a fluffy key lime pie-type of scent to me. While it's softer overall, the aforementioned ozonic, musky notes tend to overwhelm the whole composition for me, reminding me of laundry detergent scent. If you like ozonic scents as well as hypersweet gourmand, this is one of the few compositions that melded the two worlds extraordinarily well. One more thing I'll add is that it actually does smell like Angel, just softer.
