Thierry Mugler Alien – Fragrance Direct £25.99 (*)
I’m pretty picky about perfumes. There’s only one sweeter smelling scent in my collection and even that’s not of the floral, sickly sweet note. I favour more for deeper, seductive woody scents that some people may call their 'night' scent'.
I’ve had my eye on the Thierry Mugler Alien perfume for a while after stealing a couple pumps from a friend and spritzing myself with its ‘out of this world’ contents. I’ve always bought perfumes in full size and so when it comes to throwing one in my handbag I struggle to decide which is the lightest and less awkwardly shaped for lugging around.
But this little dark gem is perfect for even the smallest of handbags and last a lot longer than its 15ml contents looks. Its scent is head strong and bold. It contains, notes of white amber and cashmeran wood (musky component) all rounded off with a tiny drop of sunny Indian jasmine. Heavenly.
The style of this bottle completely portrays its contents. A dark precious stone mined from another world with sharp claws protecting its mysterious deep purple hue contents.
My favourite thing about this product is its lasting scent that ever so slightly changes from being powered by sweet jasmine to cashmeran wood after a few hours. Obviously our senses befriend the scent and it appears to fade but after receiving compliments later on in the day and getting the slight wave of scent every now and again its definitely a scent that'll stick around.
