Alien Essence Absolue EDP - Review

Thierry Mugler has recently launched a new edition of the original Alien scent - Alien Essence Absolue
which was originally exclusive to Selfridges but now that period of exclusivity is over it is easier for
us that don't have a Selfridges store near to not only test but purchase!

I say this all the time but Alien by Thierry Mugler is my absolute favourite fragrance EVER!
I have owned pretty much every single edition over the years and wear it daily,
it is quite a rich and sensual scent that most would deem more appropriate for evening wear
but I adore it so much that I refuse to follow fragrance rules!

"Alien Essence Absolue is a richly intense Eau de Parfum. 
A fusion of sensual, floral notes enriched with the deep and mysterious notes of myrrh, cashmeran wood and the irresistible warm sensuality of vanilla and white amber."

Alien Essence Absolue is slightly lighter and has more golden sunny notes than the original
which is reflected not only in the fragrance notes but also in the delicious gold colour of the liquid!
The warm notes of vanilla and white amber make this the perfect scent for the upcoming winter
weather, what I adore most is that despite having new notes in the mix this still has all the essence of
the original Alien scent but with a slightly lighter feel which does make it more day appropriate.
Also as it is an Eau De Parfum a little really does go a long way and all of the bottles of 
Alien Essence Absolue are refillable which is not only great on the ol' wallet 
but more environmentally friendly in the long term too!

Alien Essence Absolue* 30ml/£52.50 60ml/£69 and is available from Selfridges - link
and now all Thierry Mugler retaliers such as The Perfume Shop and The House of Frazer.

  1. oh my word! I love this perfume! Want! The bottle looks so much cuter than I thought it would. In the pictures it looks a bit weird but in your photos it looks great :) xxo

  2. I love love love the packaging of Thierry Mugler perfumes! The Alien scent is deffo an evening scent and i find it a bit too heavy for my liking. Its great that this seems to be lighter and a bit more wearable. I might check this out when i am shopping next time. Thanks for sharing your thoughts on it. It was very helpful :)

  3. I love Alien! It's great that they are all refillable!

  4. wowowo i must try this :)

  5. I wear Alien daily also! I think this looks great though!!

  6. I love the perfume, I think like it´s more evening type of smell, thanks for sharing

  7. Oh my I love the original but this one looks lovely! I also wear it all the time, day or night! I love how other Alien fans will say 'are you wearing alien?' immediately as you start talking to them, such a distinctive fragrance!

  8. Ok, I am probably the LAST to know about Thierry Mugler's fragrances because I don't think it's readily available here where I live but everyone says its their fave and its longlasting, etc.etc. and I just want to try all his fragrances now so badly! lol
