THIS Scent Just Got Spicy

As you guys know my trademark perfume has been Mugler Alien since I was in my early twenties. Which yes makes me sound old, but also shows how long I’ve loved it. I’ve found a lot of gorgeous fragrances in that time, some of which I never allow myself to run out of, and these are always the ones I go back to time and time again. And Alien is one of these.

As a die-hard fan of the scent I’ve now tried almost every product in the range. From the candles to the full gift sets at Christmas, right through to the newer fragrance pens which I featured on my Gift Guide this festive season. I just won’t get bored of the scent, ever. So when I saw that there was a new twist on the timeless classic, I knew I had to try it. Called Alien Fusion it’s been named, and themed after a solar eclipse. Supposed to embody the way the light between the sea and the sky reflects, this is everything you’d expect: it’s sultry and almost spicy.

If I was asked to describe the scent in one word it’s that: spicy.

It reminds me of hot clients at sunset, a far stretching dessert or the way they portray the surface of the moon to look like in films. Dry, hot and spicy. The scent matches this exactly – it’s sultry like you expect with Alien, as it’s got the same musk level to it, but it’s warm too. A warmth that creates definition and takes you away from what you know about the fragrance originally. You can really pick up the orange blossom from the second you spray the perfume. It’s this that creates the warmth when worn.

One thing I noticed with this fragrance was how it changed so much in those first few minutes after applying to the skin. It literally transforms and evolves during the first moments. It almost goes from one scent to another – and then to another, as each element ‘opens’ on the skin. It’s not something I’ve noticed on this level with any other perfume I’ve tried. Ever. It’s that almost visual transformation of scent that makes Alien Fusion so alluring. The transformation occurs as the ginger and cinnamon begin to fuse. After this, the Tuberose adds the floral element that keeps things feminine and sexy – something I’ve always loved about Alien. And then you’ll finally notice the vanilla which keeps things inviting. It’s really wonderful when you first try it and you smell the evolution as it melts into the skin.

If you’re looking for a new take on an old classic and fancy something seriously sensual, then this is the fragrance for you. I think you’ll be blown away by Mugler Alien Fusion.
