Thierry Mugler Angel Passion Star || Covetable 2015 Perfumes

Thierry Mugler's latest perfume creation is called Angel Passion Star and comes in this gorgeous bottle in time for the holiday season. I can see this sitting awkwardly on my dressing table but still being the shining star, there's something very festive with the bottle but is there anything festive about the scent itself?
The note line up includes:

Top notes include melon, coconut, mandarin orange, cassis, jasmine, bergamot and cotton candy. Middle notes are honey, peach, apricot, jasmine, blackberry, plum, orchid, rose, red berries and lily-of-the-valley on a base of tonka, amber, patchouli, musk, vanilla, chocolate and caramel.

Well, it's a rehash of Angel which isn't a bad thing. Angel's always been one of those Marmite fragrances for some, working in harmony with some people's body chemistry and overpowering the rest. I adore the scent and its complexity - but - it's simply too strong with no dry down on me personally.

The thing is these notes are the exact same ones that they use in Thierry Mugler's Angel. I can't really see how they've rehashed Angel with exactly the same notes unless they simply add more of the same note, personally I think it's a cop-out. I'd loved to have seen less sweetness with the caramel and chocolate notes and maybe they upped their game with an addition of amber notes instead? It would be similar to Angel, of course, but it would have a smoother, sexier appeal.

So basically Angel Passion Star is a bottle launch. The bottle is limited edition and so gorgeous so I'm not going to grumble. If you want to get your paws on the launch I believe it's coming in a 50ml refillable bottle size with more sizes being considered.

What are your thoughts on the launch having the same notes as the original Angel?
