Angel, which has been around since 1992, seems to be a "love it or hate it" kind of scent. It's strong (one spritz should do you for the day) and offbeat in that it doesn't seem to fit into any one category. Angel has more food notes than anything -- including chocolate, caramel, cinnamon and ginger -- but somehow it isn't sweet. Trying it yourself is really the only way to discover if you'll be an Angel convert.
