Angel La Rose is a softer, more floral version of the original. I find the fruity, gourmand notes of the original a tad overpowering but this scent is powdery and peppery. Like any incarnation of Angel, the staying power is excellent. The rose notes are very delicate, so if you are looking for a true rose scent then look elsewhere. I personally prefer Angel Voillette, but this scent has its own unique charm.
