Fragrance Friday: Alien Essence Absolue

Thierry Mugler is one of those love-hate brands for me. I wore Angel religiously in my teens, and adored it, but it's simply too much for me now. It seems that their second most famous scent 'Alien' has had the opposite effect on me... I hated it when I used to wear Angel, but more recently it has started to grow on me and when I smelt the new version of the fragrance, I found I actually really like it.
The new Alien Absolue Essence is a slightly sweeter version of the original, with added notes of vanilla and amber. To me it is a lot easier to wear than the original and lasts (literally!) all day on my skin. As usual with Mugler's perfumes, two sprays and you're good-to-go for the whole day. This is one thing that I love about the brand, as I find it increasingly hard to find fragrances that don't disappear within two hours. If you're looking for a scent with serious staying power and you like gourmand fragrances, this is for you!
You can pick up the new Alien Absolue Essence now from all major department stores (It's a permanent addition to the Thierry Mugler family). The 30ml and 60ml refillable bottles are priced at £52 and £69 respectively.

  8. What strange looking packaging! At first glance the gold version reminded me of a vagina .. was that just me or does anyone else see it? Lmao prob just me.

    I've never heard of this perfume before but the scent sounds nice. :)

    1. lol! It's not just you.. But i think it was intended this way.. pretty sure, really. Emphasizing femininity, i guess.

  9. I've always loved Thierry Mugler's packaging but never liked Alien when I was younger- I'll give it a try now as I want one that lasts all day. Lovely review.

  12. I do really like my scents to last. I get all sad when they abandon me halfway through the day. I will give this one another sniff soon, I haven't tested Alien for a while.

  13. Love the name of this perfume, and the bottle! This new version sounds like it'd be more up my street than the original. The only thing I'm not keen on is the promo pic! x

  18. I also find this with Thierry Mugler fragrances. They are very strong...sometimes I find them overpowering.
    Love watching your youtube channel and visiting Bridedeforce!

  28. I've never worn any Mugler scent and couldn't bear the morning commute with Angel everywhere on my crowded bus back in the '90s. Was it the '90s? At any rate, this is different. I get coffee, and I rather like the idea of smelling of coffee on winter mornings. Then there's the jasmine with that sweet/but-inedible accompaniment, which makes it more 'unfriendly' than 'nice'. All in all, it's not all about sweetness. It is a bit weird, which is a good thing in my book. Much to my surprise, I like it. (I'm a chypre/leather girl normally).
