Thierry Mugler - Alien from £18.50 @ Debenhams*
Notes: Amber, vanilla, orange blossom, woods & jasmine.

I've wanted to have this perfume in my collection for the longest time but i've just never got round to purchasing it, choosing to repurchase old favourites and stick to them. I remember the first time i was introduced to the scent, it had just been released and there was a sample in a magazine and i loved it straight away. I didn't realise just how long that was until after doing some research and noticed it first came out in 2005! So 7 years later, i finally own the beauty that is Alien.

Being the Sci-fi geek that i am, the box and bottle design to me is simply perfect, capturing the Alien title brilliantly. I also get a bit of a Harry Potter Philosophers stone vibe in there too which is always good if you ask me! I've read a lot of reviews about this perfume over the years and a lot of people say this a day time perfume with the orange and jasmine notes. But despite the floral accents this perfume to me is more of a night time one, i find it to be quite heavy with the wood and amber, i guess it's just personal preference. The lasting power is amazing, in fact it's one of the things it's well known for and gets the highest reviews. A couple of sprays is all you need and hours later it's just a strong. I don't tend to carry perfumes around with me, if i do they're usually sample ones so the fact this lasts so long is really appeals to me.

Overall i really love Alien and i can't believe i've waited so long to get my paws on it. I think it's a really unique scent and different to everything i have in my collection and for that reason it gets a big thumbs up!

Have you tried this perfume? What do you think?
