Ange ou Demon? Perfume Is a Must

Perfume should be a part of every woman's beauty routine.  It should be subtle and should match your mood, identity, or style in some way.
  I tend to like to have a signature fragrance myself, one that I wear constantly and layer in all its forms.  In the 1980's through the 1990's until the formula changed, it was Sung by Alfred Sung.  It just smelled good on me and people commented on it in a positive way constantly.  Then, it was Escada - the original Escada with its wonderful jasmine.  Then Escada became hard to find. I had  Boucheron, and Fracas when the mood struck me, but neither could be my signature.  So, I'm still looking.
  This year while traveling in Africa, I bought perfume and lotion in Maputo, Mozambique - Givenchy's Ange ou Demon.  I love it!  I don't think it can be my signature, but I am enjoying it.  Notes:   top notes are mandarin, white cumin and saffron which open to the florals of lily and orchid combined with ylang-ylang; rosewood and dense oak moss absolute continue and lead to a drydown of  powdery and sensual Tonka and vanilla. It lacks the jasmine I love so much, but for now, it's the perfect Spring fragrance - not too sweet, and just sexy enough.
  Do you have a signature fragrance?
