I am not usually a perfume wearer. I must admit, that I'm more of a quickly spray some cheap deodorant on and run kind of girl. That was until I recently was introduced to the gorgeous Thierry Mugler's Alien perfume. Described as “imaginary and esoteric”, “a shaman, representing serenity and spirituality”, this ”woody amber/solar floral” with notes of “white transparent amber, a woody note with Cashmeran, and jasmine sambac”, took over three years to be perfected and finalised.
Alien is a big, strong floral scent that lasts for hours once sprayed, it has honestly become my favourite smell in the whole entire world and I have to wear it every single day. A couple of sprays is all you need and hours later the smell is just as strong. There is always someone who comments on how nice my perfume smells and I proudly tell them that it's Alien.
Being the Sci-fi geek that I am, the box and bottle design to me are simply perfect. Purple and silver jut screams 'out of this world' to me and I truly believe that it captures the feel of the perfume perfectly. I love the idea of an Alien themed perfume, it's just so...me! I cannot tell you how much I love the bottle, I mean...just look at it. Even if I didn't absolutely adore the smell, I'd still purchase it just to have the bottle sat on my dressing table.
As you can probably already tell, I really love this perfume, It is my favourite thing ever and what makes it even better is that my wonderful boyfriend Kieron bought this for me for our 4 year anniversary - how cute is that?! One day I said to him "oh I love the smell of Alien, it's so pretty" and then two months later I received it as a present! What a good boy.
