Fragrances -Thierry Mugler -Aura

How beautiful is this bottle! The details and presentation are absolutely everything! Shining the bottle into the light shows, the detail of the heart-shaped fragrance as the green colour glistens in the light. For me, this perfume was a great scent to wear on a ‘date night’ as the scents exude femininity. The floral notes of orange blossom can be smelt with the musky notes of bourbon, vanilla, Wolfwood and a top note of rhubarb leaves.

For me, this scent is the perfect blend of opposite notes, as I love the woody tones, with the floral notes making the scent more feminine. I also love that Aura Mugler holds such mystery and positivity as a fragrance, as the emerald colour symbolises life, luck, hope and intuition.

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.

It is way too strong for me. I got it as a present if I wear it people start to cough. Don't get it.


Fragrances -Thierry Mugler -Cologne

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.


Fragrances -Thierry Mugler -Alien Eau Extraordinaire

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.

Uhg, my Mom loves this stuff. I'm not familiar with scent notes, but this stuff is STRONG and not in a nice way. Really not a fan.

ORIGINAL 1 STAR REVIEW
I'm an infamous mediator. I see both sides to everything, so this highly polarizing fragrance drew too much curiousity to pass up! Surely people were exaggerating, and it's not something you either LOVE or you HATE? The top selling fragrance in the world, surely the haters were just rebelling against the popularity of an otherwise decent perfume?

I braced myself, applied one spritz, and was hit with a strong bug spray, Christmas tree, and soap smell. I perserved. An hour in, the patchouli settles down and the honey, foody notes start peeking through. It stays like this till end on me. While people complain that this smells ''dirty'' to me it smells clean. Far too clean.

At no point did I feel angelic or beautiful. If anything, it is as if I was a very naughty girl who was punished for eating too many sweets by having my mouth washed out with soap. The soap with the bare trace of the sweets is exactly how this smells. Any temptation that the gourmand might provoke is dashed with the soapy notes, and not in a sexy teasing way, a very WRONG way. Like this is something that will kill you if you eat it. I absolutely agree with another reviewer that said that the combination of edible + inedible is nauseating. And not in the rude way, the actual stomach-turning way.

So there you have it. I wanted to like this or at the very least see the good and bad equally, but this is just... bad. I genuinely wish I could smell the beautiful sweet notes that everyone who loves it professes to smell. Oh well! I'm convinced that most people who love it had to acquire the taste. Considering I don't believe I've smelled this on anyone before in my life, at least rest assured that you will smell unique.

EDIT: Okay, so I tried this again, making sure to diffuse the fragrance over a large area of the body instead of concentrating a spray. Definitely feeling more sweet notes, a general softer feel to it, no pine tree, no bug spray. This is a spray-once-and-walk-through-naked fragrance. Gave it an extra lippie because I can KIND OF see the appeal now.

EDIT2: Gosh, I keep improving the score. Definitely don't spray this concentrated on your wrists or elbows and sniff yourself to judge the fragrance. Be brave on a day in and spread a small spray over your forearms. Notice the sillage instead of sniffing up close. Definitely have a more balanced opinion now! Mature, chocolatey, vanilla-y yummyness. Still not a fan of the patch but it doesn't feature as heavily when thinly applied.

EDIT3: Idk what happened, the stinkbomb made me love it! At any rate it's perfect for Christmas. I actually wore it outside today after a snowstorm and it was perfect. I just made sure to put it on an hour before.

The scent reminds me of getting a hug from my rich aunt (I believe she wore original Shalimar) while at a birthday party full of sweets and good times. The patch features, but balances out the sweet notes with spiciness/smoke/cleanliness after one hour of sparse skin wear.

Angel is a dominatrix. She will beat you, assault you, and just when you've given up, AND NOT A MOMENT SOONER, she will show you the glory of God. Vera Wang Princess is the soft, kind, unoffensive version of Angel. But Queen Angel has her place when you need to show your authority and strength. Respect her majesty, apply carefully and only in appropriate situations where you need the strength, and you will be rewarded with amazing comfort while you Take Control of Shit.

Sometimes, you need to smell like a rich white lady with questionable, but expensive taste, in order to feel in control and taken seriously.

A little too heavy & strong. This is coming from some who wears angel, youth dew & No. 5 on a reg basis. I sent this back to get another bottle of reg Alien. This wasn’t sweet enough it was kind of bitter maybe I had an old bottle I got mine on eBay. In retrospect i kind of wish I’d kept it but it was $20 that’d be laying around never used. I paid $30 for alien I think it’s money better spent! I love Alien just not this as much. I get a lavendar vibe off it I hate lavendar I find it bitter & sour. TM is a scent genius. But he’s not Jacque polger!

I would buy this if it wasn’t so stinkin expensive! It starts out wintergreen sour with vanilla medicinal but it warms up into a lovely evergreen note like pine needles what I wanted Clinique wrappings to be (but sadly wasn’t). All in all a very nice if different off the beaten path frag but TM is known for his unorthodox offerings. I can’t stop sniffing & I’m going to be sad when it fades away. I got this sample in my The Circle TM subscription box that comes 4X a year.

Lotions/ Creams -Thierry Mugler -Alien Radient Body Lotion

This is a lovely lotion that really moisturizes more than most lotions that you can buy with your fragrance. What I didn’t notice and it’s not a deal breaker for me it could be for others is the tiny shimmer particles. Now it actually makes the skin look gorgeous but I’m not sure everyone would like this. To me it smells so good and I like to layer lotion and my perfume. This lotion though is very nice. It leaves my skin soft and the shimmer would be perfect if you are wearing something where you want to highlight how nice your skin looks.

Daily though I don’t want shimmer so I wish they made this without it I think the cream has the gold shimmer too. But it does make my skin look so pretty and the scent is amazing. It leaves my skin very soft and smooth for extra moisture I mix it with my Cerave body lotion and it also helps lock in the perfume. So the shimmer isn’t a bad thing for me but I would like a non shimmer version for daily use.

I love Alien perfume to me it’s my Fall/Winter scent, or cold weather scent in general. I adore Jasmine and this mixed with the amber and the wood make this a fragrance I just can’t do without. I purchased the refillable bottle because I love how you can save by refilling the stone. The scent itself to me is a spicy Jasmine but what I love is the heady, narcotic, allure of the Jasmine in this. I’ve never smelled one that came close except for some of my middle eastern attars have a Jasmine that is similar but not like Alien. I purchased a refill as well as the shower gel and lotion as I cannot get enough of this. It’s very pricey but you can find it for less and the scent is so strong and the sillage is very heavy with this so a little goes a very long way.

This to me is everything I enjoy in a perfume it’s strong, lasts, and is unique. The bottle I adore and I love the eco friendly factor. On me this lasts on my skin for at least 24 hours on my clothes much longer. You only need a few tiny spritz’s and a little seriously goes a long way. I’m a white floral lover and this to me is a white floral paradise. I will repurchase Alien without a doubt as I find I cannot do without this scent. I also love the Essence Absolue and own that as well. Layering them on occasion smells so good! Couldn’t be happier with a perfume.:)

This perfume smells so divine and I really love it. I purchased this before I got Alien because I love vanilla and this mixed with the Jasmine plus the incense, orris root, myrrh, and white Amber creates such a lovely scent. I like to wear this at night during the colder months. I think this smells so good in cold weather. I also like to wear this at night or to special occasions. I love Mugler fragrances because they are so strong, unique, and, they last on me for hours with a very heavy sillage. A little really goes a long way with this as well. I would buy the refill of this any day, but I still have so much since you only need a few tiny sprays. Seriously one great scent. Love!

Side note: Also I've layered this with Alien and find the two together to be so lovely. :)

A good fragrance, spray it one time and you're good to go. Don't do it more than once or it's too much. I see why Angel exists for many years now. Pro: - fragrances is awesome - beautiful bottle - stays for hours (extreme concentrated) Neutral: - price Con: - you get not much for that price
