Like MonkeyBars, I found Angelica EO to vary widely. My first, of angelica root, was absolutely wonderful. Dry, deep, earthy, musty, sparky, uplifting - an odd combination for a root fragrance as they are usually considered grounding. But Angelica derived it's name from its ancient association of being able to put one in touch, or in the realms of the angels. So it was considered a spiritual fragrance. It has a unique grounding uplifting quality to it.
The angelica seed EO reflects the difference usually associated between the root and tops of a plant - the root represents the earth, and seeds the air. And it's true the seed doesn't affect one quite as deeply, is less grounding. The seed eo is airier, affects one's mental processes more.
I fell in love with this fragrance so much that I actually have a hard time with angelica commercial fragrances. It's very hard to maintain the distinct wonder of angelica root eo in a perfume, so instead are always a compromise toward something else. I haven't really found one that highlights the wonder of a good EO. There's nothing wrong with the perfume - but if you are looking to experience angelica, don't look to a perfume. It really is one of those notes that must be experienced undiluted in it's pure form. I like Angelica so much I prefer mine straight up, and haven't really found any perfume that highlights it well.
That being said, Angelica does bring a subtle interesting character to commercial fragrances. I think Angéliques Sous La Pluie by Malle is probably my favorite at this point.
