After the success of Thierry Mugler’s first star Angel, an array of successors came sprouting, but none has been as loved as the original Angel. In 2007, a resemblance of the original success, Eau de Star was released.
Eau de Star reminds me of Angel’s brilliance but this one has an aquatic twist to it, making it a lot lighter. The distinguishable notes are the watery sweetness of watermelon blended with an agreeable peppery accord. The amount of patchouli’s spice is just enough to tickle one’s senses. The dry down is warm with a very comfortable powdery feel to it. Eau de Star indeed has an amazing set of well-balanced contrasting notes.
This fragrance conjures up images of childhood memories which very much uplift my mood. The aquatic twist of this perfume captures rain in summer. It also has a bitter edge that makes it quite a sophisticated fragrance. It is stylish, it has a bit of pleasurable harshness to it, and it is cold with a very subtle sweetness beneath. Try this fragrance on, and if it will suit you well, you’ll know exactly what I mean.
The designer Thierry Mugler, same as with a lot of other world renowned individuals from the designing world, believes in lucky charms. If Christian Dior it to lilies and Coco Chanel is to the number 5, Thierry Mugler, as obviously seen in his designs, consider stars as his lucky charm.
The successful Angel came out in a star shaped bottle with angular sides on varying shades; the succeeding collections of Thierry Mugler’s perfume came in the same Mugler star designed bottles. Eau de Star is not an exemption to this. Eau de Star is contained in a bottle with three sides of heavy glass affairs; the signature Mugler star is situated in front with a silver geometrical cap mounted on its top bearing the brand’s logo.
Eau de Star comes in a concentration of 25ml and 50 ml refillable bottles. It is available all over Europe and on the internet.
The only problem with Eau de Star is its longevity, because it is lighter than the predecessor Angel, it does not last as long as Angel does. On a good day the maximum staying power of this perfume ranges from 3 to 6 hours.
If you have admired Angel, Rose Angel and Innocent then you will surely not regret this new design of Mugler. It is a resemblance of the original Mugler stars but there is another very intriguing twist to Eau de Star. Eau de Star has an amazing construction of opposing scents that can be quite scary when imagined but can very well amaze one when tried on. The bitter edge of this perfume and its watery twist strikes with the most uniqueness.
You will be able to enjoy the aroma of this fragrance without worrying on having to offend other people, because this fragrance it very light and non-irritating. It is perfect for daily use, especially at summer and in the office.
