Thierry Mugler's Alien: What can I say about Alien that hasn't been said before? Alien is rightly named so. It is an other-worldly jasmine. Jasmine is somewhat cold, shrill but something about it makes me want it more. This brassy beginning has a wonderful dry down of lush feminine floral woods. From my point of view, it is an 'in your face' floral with a wow factor. This is something I normally like, but it is bit too much for me, mind numbingly so.
|How very Alien-like is this gorgeous bottle!|
The words "Alien" inscribed like some space language, with the mirror image.
I recently picked up a bottle of body lotion from a run down perfume auction store for a meagre 15 bucks. Catch! Since the way Alien begins kind of blows my nose away, I thought trying a body lotion would be a tamed down version of the perfume. I was right. The body lotion has the strength of the jasmine minus the harshness. It wears really well, to the point that at some point during the day I keep wondering what gorgeous perfume I'm smelling. It has all the essence of Alien with amplified femininity and sophistication.
I'm glad I picked this up because it is Alien in a nicely bearable form. It has made me like Alien much more.
