About Angel Garden Of Stars - Peony Angel

The "Garden of Stars" series is intended to reach out to both consumers who are fans and those that do not like the original Angel.
Angel is a Woody-Foody scent with no floral notes -- this new range intends to 'floralize' the scent. The three fragrances are Violet Angel, The Lily Angel and Peony Angel.

Reviews of Angel Garden Of Stars - Peony Angel

Pivoine opens with a smell of aldehyde, some patchouli and a hint of chocolate. The chocolate disappears very soon and the scent becomes a little soapy and sharp.

Then comes the heart notes with peony, pepper, patchouli and rose. Peony and pepper are prominent, makes it more like a spicy-floral scent. At this stage, I might not think of Angel if I smell it blind.

However, it continues to evolve into a dark chocolate drydown though it's not listed, like a ghost of Angel.

I actually like the heart notes a lot. Peony touched by spicy pepper, tender but with characters. And it's less close to the original than La Rose version IMO. The sillage and the longevity is among average and less good compared to its colleagues from the same house. It's an interesting interpretation with classic Angel elements, but you might need to like pepper to appreciate it better.

Testing, testing....
Blimey this stuff is strong at the start!! Patchouli smacks in you square in the face then hangs around to poke fun. Once the peony arrives (a good hour later) its rather nice but not nice enough to make up for the patchouli assault earlier on. It was all bravado anyway, it only lasted 4-5 hours, not good enough for a Mugler, and the price tag.

Besides all that, its practically impossible to buy in UK, I can't find any real shops that stock it, only a few online. I bought a sample from eBay, that's all you can find there.

Perhaps not as pretty as the other fragrances in the Garden of Stars range in my opinion, yet still not something that has left me unimpressed.

Pivoine Angel is rather strong from beginning to end. Rich with patchouli, pepper and peony, this fragrance is more bold than pretty.

What makes this fragrance stand out over and above the other scents in this series is its lack of sweetness. Pivoine Angel is quite raw and simplistic, the vanilla is barely there.

The drydown is the only relief from this very busy and loud fragrance, which turns surprisingly soapy and musky on my skin.

Although the lasting power is well above average, this lasted the shortest out of all the scents in the Garden of Stars series.

Well this scent showed me how hormones or neurotransmitter levels can play on your percieving a scent. At the first try i was very sure that angel pivoine is a nasty scent that all notes kill or spoil eachother and the result is a dirty medicinal floral chocolate mess. But after a month at the second chance i was able to smell the lovely pivoine and smooth aromatic base. ıt even become usable for me.

A pretty decent variation on the Angel theme. But ultimately pointless and joyless. I didn't enjoy as much as I'd have like. Strictly for the hard-core Angel fan.

My fave of all the Garden of Stars collection (along side the Rose Angel). It's spicey, sexy and pretty, all the things that Angel should be! Also, i'm surprised that noone has mentioned how beautiful the Garden of Stars bottles are, they really are striking!!
