I have been lusting over this fragrance for years. Everytime I went passed a perfume counter I was spritzing it all over myself but I could never justify spending the money on the fragrance because it is quiet expensive, even for the smallest size. When I unwrapped the Thierry Mugler Alien Perfume on Christmas Day I was ecstatic!
Thierry Mugler launched the Alien fragrance back in 2005 and even 11 years later, people are still lusting after it and purchasing. Since the successful launch, Theirry Mugler has launched refillable bottles and two additional versions of the original Alien scent, Alien Eau Extraordinaire and Alien Essence Absolue. Alien has top notes of Mandarin Essence, heart notes of Moroccan Jasmine and base notes of Whiter Amber and Cashmeran Wood. Together they create a stunning floral woody amber fragrance which is like no other and completely out of this world.
I have been wearing this scent everyday since Christmas Day and I have fallen head over heels in love with it. It is a completely different scent to what I would normally pick, I usually go for sweet and vanilla based fragrances. This is a stronger scent so a little goes a long way, I prefer to spritz this onto my scarfs or clothing for day to day wear. Even though this scent is on the stronger side, it isn't overpowering and its not so strong that you can taste it. It lasts brilliantly throughout the day and is one of the only fragrances I wear that I can actually still smell hours later! When I spray it onto my scarves, I can actually smell it for days! The scent is Jasmine based so if that isn't your type of fragrance you won't like this.
The packaging is gorgeous and completely goes along with the out of this world theme. I love the deep purple bottle with the gold accents, the shape is unique to any of the other bottles in my collection. I am not one to repurchase fragrances, or any beauty products really, but I know that I will repurchase this scent time and time again. I think I will pick up the refillable bottle next as it makes the most sense.
The Thierry Mugler Alien Eau de Parfum retails from £49.50 - link.
