An interesting flanker to the original Angel.
This begins with a soft floral scent, identical to the opening of Yves Saint Laurent's first scent, Y, which has the baby's breath dryness of a bouquet freshly delivered from the florist shop.
This soon fades and we have the original Angel, softer, quieter, but still the original Angel.
Both this and A*Men are somewhat cheats, winning you over with different top notes that may sell at the counter, but disappear ten minutes after leaving the store.
As a variation on the original, it's nice, but it doesn't take much work to layer a top note enticement onto an established base scent, thus the neutral review.
Like super sweet gourmand perfumes?like cotton candy? then you'll love INNOCENT.It is a fresher,more delicate version of the classic ANGEL.This perfume tells everything at hello and will love him salivate and ask for seconds with its gourmand,yummy base under the breathtaking heart and fruity top notes of its scent. Sweet,Sensual,Warm,Comforting,Delicious, Feminine and Sensuous.
Top notes of bergamot and tangerine rest atop an almond,red berries and black currant heart,praline in the base blends with sweet vanilla for a delightful and warm end to a captivating and lovely perfume that will lure anyone to your attention so i think INNOCENT is a misnomer for this perfume.Suitable to the young and the young at heart.
It is not as strong as ANGEL but concentrated enough to leave people in your path with scents of your perfume and definitely it will make people want to come back for another sniff.Perfect for Daytime wear however it is sophisticated and sexy enough for Evening wear in COLD weather.Highly recommend for someone who can not tolerate heavy smell of ANGEL.
Longevity?Very Good on my skin.
I do like Innocent, I do, but to me, it smells almost exactly like Angel, if a little watered down. They are too much alike to be considered "different".
Notes for Innocent according to perfume shrine:
Top: bergamot, mandarin, helional
Middle: dewberry, honey , blackcurrant, passionfruit
Base: sugar almonds, amber, musk, meringue
It's no longer a favourite, but I like Innocent, though I can't distinguish individual fruits, to me the fruits just add another variety of sweet. It seems I pick out the sweeties and the cake notes more- of honey and sugar almonds. Marshmallow ... and the scent of skin on a warm day - which may be musk with anything dangerous or sexy carefully sliced away. If anyone knows Nag Champa incense sticks, there's a touch of that in here too. A cross between the incense of a Kathmandu street and the staypuffed marshmallow man. It kind of works !
