Summary: As others noted, previously opened product! Cheap gold foil glued on box top, registration code has been cut out. Cannot gift this and will have to buy again, but definitely NOT FROM Amazon!!! Extremely unhappy with this purchase! I have my doubts that this is authentic. Spend the extra $$ and get this elsewhere.
Summary: I subscribe to the maxim that one is either a fan of Angel or Alien. I happen to be Team Angel but I wanted to try this scent because of the edgy bottle and interesting backstory. This fragrance has a sunblock-esque quality about it. I find that the grape and jasmine notes constitute most of the opening burst, and the amber settles in after a few hours. Alien is very much like Dior Poison to my nose.
Summary: I've been wearing this perfume for a year now. It is usually pretty pricey but I found this seller & I am now a loyal customer! Shipped quickly, exactly what I wanted, product code included & all!
Summary: Alien is different. Mostly orange blossom or jasmine, honey, grape juice, a note of metal, and a dash of pepper. Reminds me of LouLou, but richer and deeper. And a lot like vintage Poeme in the drydown. Delicious and comfortable if applied with a light hand, brash and ridiculous if applied too heavily. Took me about 10 years to understand Alien. It's actually become a favorite of mine. I have now joined the 21st century and am officially "with the program.
Summary: While testing frags I stumbled across Alien after loading up several dozen cards and smelling them blindly while at a red light. I was very into the floral scent of it. I returned the next day with the card to purchase it and gave it a test...wow this scent is STRONG and incredibly long lasting! I actually almost don't like it before the dry down it's almost too much. However after the dry down tames it just enough to the point I can't get enough of it.
