You will either love or hate this one, there is no inbetween. To me, this is the sexiest sofistication in a bottle. It is dark, bold, sweet, musky, earthy, deeply erotic. The sillage is amazing, use VERY sparingly, otherwise it will turn into headaches. The lingering scent the next couple of days is even more intoxicating, I can't stop sniffing myself :-) But.. it is definitely not aimed at fragile, sensitive, shy, romantic types who like delicate, flowery or fresh, citrusy scents. It compliments a bold, sexy, confident, mysterious, strong woman who knows what she wants and goes for it. If you are one of them, men will go crazy around you, it is a dangerous seduction weapon :-)

expected the bottle of scent to be a lot pinker due to the photo. The liquid is a very pale pink, you have to examine it closely to notice that it is in fact pink. If I didn't know it was figs and more about figs then I'd think it was a floral, this smells sweet and floral on me, yes it had a hint of sea breeze, well put together, beautiful scent that lasts to the next day. The bottle looks like it should be called Viking Woman, the bottle look does match the smell of the scent, even though as the name stands as Womanity the bottle says it all ♡

Oooh I love this fragrance...even though Thierry Mugler 'Angel' is quite an old perfume, I can still relate to this in many ways. My mom used to wear this on a daily basis from about 2006 or was it 2005 (?) until very recently. My grandmother was also a big fan and used to spritz this on her neck before heading to her work place every morning. Even my ex used to wear this (well to be specific the 'A'men - male version of Angel haha).

Following the family tradition, I used to spray this too before heading to my office every week day. I loved the smell of this (very unique - tonka bean, vanilla, etc) as it was unlike any other scent out there. Even now, having had a sniff of so many generic fragrances in the department stores, there is something about Angel that sets it apart from the many run-of-the-mill fragrances out there. I would re-purchase this in a heartbeat - not just for the sake of nostalgia lol, but because there is nothing else that smells remotely like this. When you wear this you can be near-sure that you will be the only one in your location who is wearing anything in the same vein. it is definitely in a league of its own! And for that it is one of my all-time faves!

1992. Since then nothing else!
Its a permume that you will love it or hate it, Thats Angel and suits to a very specific type of women. Does not suit to fragile, delicate women. Its a hard scent full of vanilla, chocolate and a taste of outer space, something out of earth, a strange bitter hard scent mixed with wet soil. Thats how I can describe with words this perfume.
Its glorius to wear it and walk proud knowing that everybody can smell that you are near by. Not all men like it. The ones who love Barbies they hate it. The ones who prefer wild cats love it. Thats what my 25 years experience says.

I only tried a sample. Did not expect this to be ‘my fragrance’. But boy I was wrong. It smells heavenly (or divine, not sure about the right word to use here). It stays on forever. Will definitely purchase for winter - for summer it may be too heavy.

Fragrances -Thierry Mugler -Alien Flora Futura

foto

As soon as I saw this pop up on Ulta.com I had to get it. The original Alien EDP is my signature fragrance, and I really like most of the Alien flankers that I have smelled, but something about the description and the bottle for Flora Futura made me sure that this would be a safe blind buy. Like the previous reviewer said, it is clear that it is part of the Alien family, but it is a completely new take on the DNA of Alien in my opinion. The cactus flower is the star of the show here, making this a more feminine and classic-style Alien than some of the previous flankers, though the soft woods and amber are still there underneath the blooming cactus goodness. It has an almost powdery feeling to it that makes it feel somewhat softer and closer to the skin, so it doesn't project all over the zip code like Alien can, though there is still a good amount of silage. For being an EDT it does wear pretty well on me, though not nearly as well as Alien EDP, which I can still smell sometimes the following day. Flora Futura is a great spring and summer Alien that doesn't rely too much on citrus; there is a bit of a citrus note, but it is more complimentary than in previous flankers like Eau Sublime or Eau Extraordinaire. Also, can we talk about this freaking gorgeous bottle? IMHO it encapsulates the scent perfectly, as it has the same shape as the original Alien talisman but comes in a more subdued, girly color. All in all, I am very happy with this purchase, and this will be a scent that I reach for a lot during the warmer months.

I never purchased this but have used it. I find the scent sickening. To make things worse, it lasts forever, even a little after bathing. It has pretty strong sillage, too. All this would be great if I liked the scent. Maybe, it is the patchouli that I find so offensive although I can tolerate patchouli in moderation. Everyone has different tastes in fragrances and many like this, apparently. My one try of Alien was much more favorable.

I couldn't rate this bad just because it didn't work on me because it is an important perfume. On me on the opening it was Ok at first because it was just the patchouli note. But then it got terrible as it was drying down. It smelt like rubber on me I couldn't believe it but it did. Strange because I have the 06 or 08 extrait and I love that. Its a patchouli, chocolate, vanilla, caramel mixed in are some floral and it smells amazing.

So I will keep the extrait and will either sell or swap my 1.7 ounce bottle of this because sadly it just doesn't work on me. I could not write a oh this smells so bad and just bash it because that's not cool. I see it on other sites and I don't like it. If you dislike something there's a way to say it. Anyway sillage and longevity are excellent with this. I think the dry down is amazing but I wonder if it smells the way I do to other people and I just don't want to take that risk to find out.

All in all this is a pioneer in the gourmand world of fragrance, without Angel who knows what that catagory would be like. So I'm super glad this is around and if you can't wear Angel like me try Muse its amazing chocolate heaven with vetiver it truly is an excellent choice.

I found this on eBay for sale for an awesome price so I snatched one and a backup. I'm so glad I did because this smells so good! It opens with the jasmine which is toned down but still there then the caramel comes in and its so good like a floral caramel bubble. I swear in the dry down you can smell the salt mixed in with the amber it's so good.

This fragrance lasts till overnight and had excellent sillage. I wish this wasn't so hard to find and was readily available as it smells luscious. Alien is my favorite fragrance from Mugler and I how he comes out with unique takes on fragrance. Love!

This fragrance popped up on eBay for a super good price. Since I've wanted this for so long I snatched it up. This is divine it smells so good it opens with a boozy rum with a cherry almond note and a not so powerful but perfect jasmine mixed in. Then on the dry down is simply amazing its a thick honey, floral, woody vibe. I can't describe it except to say it's so good!

I wish there was a boozy Alien flanker that's made permanent. I know I'd buy it. This is a excellent version of Alien. That if you can get your hands on it, it's so worth it! Also this lasts for so long almost to overnight I would say. Sillage is moderate to heavy depending on how much you use. Overall an amazing scent that I would love to get a back up of. Simply amazing!

I could not resist writing a review. I am no expert at writing fragrance review so I'm going to do my best. I'm kind of still stuck in the 80s and for some reason my number one fragrance if I had to choose just one would be vintage poison. I have not yet after trying religiously found anything that works better on my skin then vintage poison. Now the rest of my perfume collection consist of mostly summertime Citrus type of smells because I kind of like perfumes on both ends of the spectrum there. I keep on trying the sweet ones that smell like candy and while they smell great in the bottle they don't don't ever project on me at all. This is no exception. I bought a sample of this one and it came today and I cannot stop applying it and then obsessively smelling my wrists. It smells so good and yummy. But like all sweet smelling perfumes like this they don't last on me. I think it's something to do with my skin because no one else seems to have these issues. After spraying that's on my wrist it lasts for about 40 minutes it's before there's no trace of it at all. A half an hour after I put it on the first time I asked my boy to smell my neck to see if he could smell it and he smelled nothing. He's 12. So while it is incredibly beautiful and delicious and I want to smell like this I can't really achieve the goal personally. Not unless I plan on reapplying this perfume every hour. So even after saying all these things I'm still considering purchasing a full size bottle just because it's stunning. It is the best smelling thing on earth. It just smells like everything delicious is that you would eat at a fair. I smell caramel strongly and a cotton candy scent and it's just incredible. I just wish that it projected on me and lasted on my skin. I'm about to make a trip to TJ Maxx since everyone's talking about finding things like this for cheap prices. Maybe I'll get lucky. I have been getting pretty nice deals on fragrancenet.com. seems like I have a continuous flow of orders coming in from that website. Right now I have a bunch of stuff in my cart then I'm trying to narrow down. I don't have much shopping availability where I live. While there is a TJ Maxx there is no Mall in the middle of the mountains of West Virginia. Therefore most everything is a blind buy

I never tried the og Angel though I want too. I wanted to try this because I wanted a scent with vetiver. This with the hazelnut note that to me smells more like a creamy chocolate is divine. I think this is a cool weather scent so I only wear this when the ac is on so I do get to enjoy this. I'm looking forward to the colder months to wear it. I think it smells amazing and if you're into gourmonds this is an awesome one.

The vetiver with the chocolate smells so good. The patchouli note is actually gorgeous and not like the 90's oil i used to wear. I think this is a delicious chocolate with spices and I adore it. I purchased this for a reasonable price and find this lasts on my skin forever and had great sillage. I have 4 Mugler scents and I love them this house makes amazing scents if you ask me.

Jasmine heaven. I like how it stays on your clothes ALL day long. People will notice you when you have this on so be prepared lol. I tend to not wear it a lot for that reason but it’s out of this world good. A more gentle, daytime friendly version of this would be ysl black opium.

This is beautiful, sexy, creamy, warm and yummy! I used to love Angel - but then it turned very angry smelling on me. I've tried on and off...just a no. So, recently I decided to smell and try Muse...ummmm this is basically how Angel used to smell on me...give or take same notes. I don't smell the woods/pine and too much patchouli anymore. Yahhoooooo!! And I found it at Marshall's for $29.99 for a 1oz. Ulta, Sephora, Macy's same size is $70....deal breaker!!

Fragrances -Thierry Mugler -Alien Essence Absolue

This is a heavenly incense/amber/myrrh bomb and is so delicious I had to just go and buy a backup. The jasmine is not as pronounced in this one as in other versions of Alien---so it has less of a grape soda feel and more of a rich syrupy grown up candied dessert feel. Yet, not really gourmand. But...on the verge. The vanilla and cashmere wood give it a cozy warm ambiance, and this EDP is STRONG. A little goes a long way and you don't want to overspray. That being said, it's one of the few that I let myself sometimes spray with abandon because it doesn't give me a headache, regardless of the heavier notes. Just a lighter hand in the warmer months. I even love the bottle---but my only regret is that I have never actually come across anything larger than the 30ml. Regardless, it's a winner.
