Thierry Muglier Alien



I have been longing to try Alien by thierry mugler for the longest time so when Notino kindly send me it over I was so happy especially as they offer discounted rates on thousands of beauty and fragrance brands!

I find that my taste in fragrance generally is extremely sweet or floral or very musky based for the evening however this scent is like nothing I own! Because it is extremely strong I find this harder to wear during the day so I tend to reserve this fragrance for the evening for when I go on date nights or a night out but nevertheless it makes a statement and can be easily worn through out the day. 

Bottle 

The bottle is based on a purple and gold palette which I look as they have used two opposing colours together which creates a signature look. I love the idea that this looks like a precious stone or amethyst crystal. I feel that this creates connotations of value and worth. 

The fragrance was inspired by an amethyst because this crystal symbolises serenity. It inspires distinction and mystery but remains a comforting, soft and warm scent. I feel that alien portrays passion and sensuality with the focus and essence being to retain femininity. 

Scent 

Very addictive but will definitely split opinions, you will either love or hate this but I would lean more towards love. This fragrance is definitely in the family of floral and woody which is the main reason it is a divider so if you prefer lighter and sweeter smells then this may not be for you 


Longevity 

Projects a very long wear time. I feel it lasts at least 10 hours so you do not need to apply heavily. This fragrance definitely announces you are in the room. 

Notes


A rich floral woody amber containing jasmine sambac, cashmeran wood and white amber it is a fragrance whose magic tral awakens your emotions. A scent like no other it is irresistibly appealing and totally out of this world...



Top notes - mandarin essence
Heart notes - Moroccan jasmine
Base notes - White amber and cashmere wood


For the price, this fragrance is amazing - it really helps having the price highly discounted through Notino. This 60ml bottle eau de perfume was only £56 instead of £70!!! Notino also stock some of my favourite brands such as MAC, Nars and Tom Ford.

  5. Alien by Thierry Mugler is one of the best fragrances of this wearhouse. The longevity and the projection are so great, it almost lasts 12 hours long. I really like the notes of this perfume. Thanks for sharing this review.
