Carson Pirie Scott is encouraging consumers to recycle their perfume bottles through their refill option, and Thierry Mugler is one of the perfumes included.
For the larger version of Angel or Alien by Thierry Mugler priced at $180, consumers can get refills for $130. For the medium version of Angel or Alien by Thierry Mugler priced at $80, the refills are $50.
And while Alien smells like someone has been suffocated in a flower bed, Angel is a pleasurable experience. The perfume notes in Alien include sambac jasmine, cashmeran wood and amber gris.
Angel, an oldie but goodie from 1992, includes the following notes: top notes of melon, coconut, mandarin orange, cassia, jasmine, bergamot and cotton candy; middle notes of honey, apricot, blackberry, plum, orchid, peach, jasmine, lily-of-the-valley, red berries and rose; and base notes of tonka bean, amber, patchouli, musk, vanilla, dark chocolate and caramel.
Angel by Thierry Mugler is lighter, more airy, mildly sweet and has a "natural" aroma to it. After the top notes calm down, the middle notes are a bit musky so it could be a borderline unisex fragrance. Once it settles in, Angel by Thierry Mugler is reminiscent of fragrance lotion. Not too strong but noticeable enough to enjoy.
So this deal is a winner for two reasons. Angel is a pretty fragrance that's worth the purchase, and both options help consumers avoid dumping a perfectly good bottle in the trash. For other perfume bottle recycling options, click here.
