Summary: I'm not sure how I feel about Alien. I purchased a big 90ml bottle blind last summer and on first sniff thought to myself OMG what have I done! Now that it's winter I'm enjoying the scent more. Pure, strong, sweet Jasmine is all I get. It doesn't change much on my skin and that's ok. Growing up, my Mum and Dad grew Jasmine on our front gate and I'm reminded of the exact smell of those beautiful little white flowers when I wear Alien.
Summary: I tried Alien out today, let me tell ya it ain't nothin unique. It's just a jasmine-bomb; its headache inducing. Very strong and powdery. I don't see what's so futuristic and different about Alien.
Summary: I was so excited to try this out, owing to the abundance of positive reviews. And the bottle design is just sublime. But when I sprayed it, I was very disappointed. The scent is straight up jasmine. COLD and SHARP. Highly reminiscent of antiseptic solution. Without a doubt, it is unique, like nothing I've ever smelled before. But as the name implies, this perfume feels ALIEN to me. It remains a separate entity, an ice queen that refuses to blend with my skin chemistry.
Summary: I am a fan of Mugler except for this one. The "jasmine" in this perfume is highly potent, chemical. A jasmine on steroid, offensive, vulgar. No jasmine on planet earth ever smelt like Alien. Real jasmine is soft and inviting. Alien is the last perfume standing in departement stores just before closing, when the store is empty, Alien is the one and only fragrance that you can identify in the fading cloud. Unfortunately, this is widely used in offices.
Summary: USE SPARINGLY a little bit goes along way. Two squirts this morning and I am still smelling the top notes of jasmine. Alien has got an under lying cosy nature to it but the jasmine keeps it very much alive an vibrant.
Summary: Initially, when my 60ml bottle arrived, I wonder how could it be possible for me to 'understand' therefore, I could 'appreciate' this little purple Alien. Definitely, this looks nothing like what we expect a fragrance bottle would be, the look quite unusual, every inch is so odd, entirely alien. Yet, it receives a warm welcome, gets its place in my fragrance wardrobe, and soon becomes a dear friend. The scent is a beautiful blend of jasmine, cashmere wood and amber.
Summary: Without any timidity or moderation – the truth about ALIEN EAU EXTRAORDINAIRE reveals in an instant after donning. It is strong, a genuine extraterrestrial being. It is a leaner, taller, slenderer variation of the original ALIEN, almost scary. Fortunately it lets you breath, the cloud is not so massive as ALIEN’s. Extraordinaire? Hm. Dry and smileless, if it would be a flower, I would run to irrigate it.
Excerpt: This is a little pricey so I only use it on dates and such, but I am so in love with this entire scent line I just had to have it. There is a lovely shimmer effect to the lotion which makes it only more charming.
Pros: Draws Compliments, Great Smell, Long-Lasting, Not Overpowering, Sensual, Sexy
Summary: Alien is definitely not for everyone--you either love it or you hate it. The jasmine and cashmeran in this reminds me of the old formula for Dior Hypnotic Poison, but Alien's jasmine is more vivid and strange. It's not cloying, but one or two spritzes per use are plenty. I like the rough edges of the original, but Alien Essence Absolue is great for anyone who wants a smoother/more polished version.
Summary: Hi guys! Is it only me, or does anybody else detect a difference between the first Alien perfume bottle (the one presented here) and the new one (which looks like edt)? the first one was way more potent! maybe my memory plays tricks on me...
