In the opening I get only brief touches of the citrus - generic on me with not much of the advertised grapefruit - and the pepper. Very brief indeed.

The the main note arises, a milk-chocolate-like impression that is quite smooth and intense. There is a slight nutty undertone present, although I do not really get the hazelnut that the scent pyramid mentions. Instead,this note is infused with an undertone of caramel. Dark floral touches - a bit of a rose mailnly - remain very week and transient on me.

The base retains the dominant chocolate, with a touch of dark cocoa-powder now, with hints of a light-hearted and uncomplicated vetiver detectable. A very restrained equally light patchouli comes and goes towards the end.

I get moderate sillage excellent projection, and nine hours of longevity on my skin.

This winter warmer gourmand is so dominated by the chocolate-cocoa-caramel centre-piece that the other components are pushed into the background on me. Therefore, is comes across as more linear than the scent pyramid would indicate. This composition is as egregiously laboratory-aroma-synthetic as its performance is excellent. 2.5/5

This is the first Angel flanker I’ve tried and I did so with some trepidation, since I intensely disliked the original Angel.

I do - thankfully - like it better than the original, but unfortunately that’s all I can say about it. I can’t get past the chocolate/hazelnut note - I just don’t like it, and didn't like it in the original Angel either. That aside, this seems like a well-done fragrance and it clearly has a lot of fans (notwithstanding the small number of reviews currently on BN).

I think the whole Angel line is just not for me, and perhaps I should be thankful, given there are enough flankers to make one dizzy.

A very nice gourmand with great staying power and totally full bodied. There are some reminders of Feve Delicieuse with that praline/nutty note. Probably too feminine for most Men to pull of but would smell great on a Woman.

Reminds me of nothing so much as coffee-shop hazelnut syrup. Tooth-achingly sweet praline confection with atomic reach and unreasonable endurance.

Well this threw me for a loop. When I read they threw in some Nutella to the Angel formula, I expected just that - Angel (fruit + chocolate-patchouli) but with the gourmande accord incorporating some hazelnut. I was wrong. Eazy-peezy.

After a strange green citrus opening - I get a bizarre chocolate-fougere. I happen to loathe the fougere accord after it's been used and abused by every masculine under the sun, so I find this very unappealing. Add in an undercurrent of the Angel-family-accord, and you end up with quite the little mess.

Still - it didn't bore me, so one thumb up for that. But not for me.

EDIT - I've completely change my mind on this. That fougere accord is what makes it brilliant. Just like the OG Angel was a hard pill go swallow, eventually you see the rough parts are what make it beautiful. I even bought a bottle.

This is a strange one. Not entirely unpleasant, but on my skin, the notes just don't blend. I smell something . . . yeasty, perhaps? I definitely get a sour grapefruit, a weirdly thin rose, and a rich gourmand base, but all of these elements seem to be trying to escape from one another rather than coming together to form a cohesive scent.

I honestly can't tell if it's the fragrance or my skin that throws the whole thing off balance. I'd be interested to smell this on someone whose chemistry works with it instead of against it.

Not surprisingly, the sillage and longevity are almost frighteningly powerful. Ain't that always the way.
