    Mugler Cologne by Thierry Mugler

    Thierry Mugler Cologne

    Thierry Mugler as a House is known for over the top gourmands like Angel and A*Men. Thierry Mugler cologne feels out of place against the backdrop of what came before but in 2001 Alberto Morillas took a different tack when he created Thierry Mugler Cologne. Thierry Mugler Cologne is supposed to be reminiscent of a soap used by M. Mugler in his youth. The top full of citrus does come off a little soapy but not in a bad way. It comes off as a homemade citrus soap which has a freshness to it not the defined edges that we usually get from citrus especially at the top of a scent. The heart continues with the crispness of the top and although not listed I get a vetiver feel at this point in the development. One of the notes listed is a secret "S" note, to my nose it smells quite herbal and closer to vetiver than anything else. The base is a light white musk which keeps this scent on the light side all the way to the finish. Thierry Mugler Cologne is not a powerhouse like Angel or A*Men it is a very light wearing scent that has an excellent duration on my skin. There is nothing particularly ground-breaking or special about this but there has to be a place for well-balanced clean smelling scents and this is one of those.
