Operation Big Fat Gay Wedding is now in full force (although now that same-sex marriage is officially legal in the UK we are simply referring to it as ‘the wedding’. Marriage is marriage after all). This Saturday marked 6 weeks until the big day and both Nigel and I are three parts excited, two parts nervous and five parts stressed (hence very few posts last week). Thankfully last Friday, my most wedding organisation induced day of stress so far, was made infinitely better by a surprise delivery from Thierry Mugler.
Now it’s no secret that Mugler is one of my all-time favourite fragrance brands and I am a long-time devotee of Angel, Alien and Womanity. So the news of a entirely new interpretation of Thierry Mugler’s iconic Angel (my beloved olfactory drag queen) was very welcome indeed. As were the lovely meringues that accompanied it, which I am ashamed to admit I have gorged on all weekend, despite the fact that I am supposed to be on a pre-wedding diet…
This limited edition summer perfume is called Angel Eau Sucrée and as its candy-striped packaging hints, it is billed as “a new ode to indulgence” containing notes of; red berry sorbet, caramelised meringue (much like the ones I’ve been scoffing over the weekend – my poor waistline), patchouli and vanilla. I don’t know about you, but that sounds right up my street and I’m very much looking forward to sniffing it over the coming weeks in preparation for my review. Further details are as follows:
“In summer 2014, Angel becomes more tempting than ever, transforming into the desirable and sensual, mouth-watering limited edition Eau Sucrée. A mischievous and delicious new interpretation of Angel, Eau Sucrée is an invitation to indulge in pure gourmand pleasure.”
