What to expect from new Alien by Mugler?

Well, Alien Mirage is a mixture of ‘aquatic freshness and amber seduction.’ It somewhat feels familiar, but it has its soul at the same time. It’s light, yet the amber makes it soft and warm. Lasting. It is lasting indeed despite being an Eau de Toilette. I was surprised by how long it lingers. I can smell it on me all day long. When I picked up my jacket I could still smell Aline Mirage the next day.

With two of my favourite ingredients in the top and bottom notes, I love it. It feels like I’m wrapped in its softness. Pink peppercorns which tend to add a spicy kick to the scent are in the top notes. I often choose fragrances that have this ingredient as of key accord that give it a distinctive ‘flavour.’
Secondly, the white amber, which often makes the appearance in base notes giving the scent longevity and warmth. Some of my all-time favourites have that note too. But this isn’t the first Alien scent that I adored, a few years ago Alien Musc Mysterieux has become my signature. Oh, how I’d love to get my hands on the bottle of it again.

The freshness of Alien Mirage hides in the middle notes probably thanks to the lotus flower, which of course isn’t the only flower note in the scent. Fine fragrances are usually complex and have many notes or accords, but in a fragrance talk, we often focus on a selected few which set the tone for the scent.

Alien by Mugler bottle is iconic.
