1. Thierry Mugler Angel

Angel Perfume By Thierry Mugler

In 1992 perfumers Olivier Cresp and Yves de Chiris collaborated on a fragrance and fashion designer Thierry Mugler released Angel, which would become one of the best-selling perfumes in the world. Bottled in star shaped flacon, legend has it that Thierry Mugler went to a fortune teller prior to becoming famous as a fashion designer.  Wearing Angel is like being dipped in succulent chocolate, both dark and milky, then drenched in caramels, cream, toffee, praline, crème brulée, vanilla, coconut, rum, coffee, dried fruits, chestnuts and a hint of the bittersweet cocoa.
