I got this for Valentine’s Day and spent 2 days trying to love it. It smelled very medicinal and never changed throughout the day.

I'm really on the fence with this one. So many strong, often contradicting notes. And when I say strong, this is Burberry level, fill-the room strong. I initially tried this when ten or so samples popped up in my magazines, and even with it's weirdness I find it alluring. Hard to stop coming back to, but not something to pick up without testing first.The good: The samples came in a very unique cardboard spray package, and while I prefer the tall thin bottle to the star shaped packaging, it is refillable, and for that it gets 5 stars on packaging. The scent itself has some very strong notes, with patchouli, bergamot and sandalwood battling it out only to mellow into the gourmand and fruity side of things. There's a lot going on in this, but I love bergamot and nothing I own is quite like this. The bad: This is too strong to wear around lots of people, I prefer it in cooler weather, this is definitely not a daily scent for me but something I reach for when I want drama.The ugly: I've never worn another fragrance that is quite as polarizing. People either really love or really hate this.

Thankfully I received this as a sample because I was on the verge of blind buying it (usually not a good idea). I'm extremely glad I got a chance to try it first because once the short life of bergamot goes away you're left with a dupe of Tom Ford's Neroli Portofino. If you like neroli and want a nice clean cologne for summer this is definitely for you. The scent life was short, only about 2 hours and as a cologne stayed close to the skin. I'm not a huge fan of neroli so this was a no-go for me, especially since I have Eau de Rochas which is perfect for summer and has a lot more depth and staying power. The good news is that it comes in a generously sized bottle for a reasonable price so reapplying isn't a problem, especially if you take a spray decant with you on the go. The reason I gave it a lower score was because there are similar, better options out there and for the longevity issue. Some other reviewers got a longer scent life out of it so it might be a good idea to try before you buy and see how it performs in the heat.

It pains me to write this review because I ADORE this scent: perfectly balanced warm, yet not too spicy, clean jasmine. I love the way this smells on other people, and think this fragrance is best during colder weather or at night. Unfortunately, I hate the way this smells on me. My skin chemistry makes this smell so metallic, so perhaps I will try the EDT out to see if that changes anything. Longevity and sillage is wonderful, and the refillable bottle is a very efficient concept.

I really love the original Alien, and it is my signature scent. I got a sample of Eau Extraordinaire and I knew I had to have a full bottle of that as well. It smells a lot like Alien, but fresher and maybe a little more effervescent. It lasts as long as the original on me, which is definitely a full eight hours and then some. The bottle is gorgeous too. Alien's purple and gold stone is dark and mysterious, whereas Eau Extraordinaire's bottle is full of luminosity, and both definitely fit their respective scents. If you love Alien, then this is a must-try.
