Long ago, before I wore Angel by Theirry Mugler, I wore Chaos by Donna Karan and loved it. (The main reason I switched to Angel was because it was the only thing by my favorite designer that I could afford.)
Anyhoodle, Chaos was discontinued at the end of the 90s, then resurrected around 2008. I did not know this. But I have an almost-completely full bottle of Original Formula Chaos, which sells for shocking prices on eBay. So of course I decided to try it again, just out of curiosity.
Dammit. I think I love it as much as Coromandel by Chanel. It smells like the best champagne cocktail ever, made with extra sugar and saturated with incense. It's similar to Coromandel (incense, vanilla, "Oriental"), but Chaos is more effervescent. . . and appears to layer beautifully with my beloved Blood Popsicle from BPAL.
Sooooo I guess I'm just going to cycle between three perfumes to layer with the BPAL: Angel, Coromandel, and now Chaos. Excuse me while I laugh at myself and my cliches.
Speaking of cliches, I am now TWO books away from having a complete run of the Avon Satanic Gothic line! Whoo!
