Hello and have a nice evening, perfumes (and perfumas)! Well, where did you put your noses again today? :DD
For me it was Alien Fusion by Thierry Mugler for the gentlemen. After all, since last year (2018) the spacige Alienreihe has also been available for us gentlemen, and it is almost certain that from now on there will be at least one new Flanker per year. Whether that's good or bad, well, you can argue about that, because tastes are always different. I personally think the women's fragrances are just great, well, most of them, and yes I also know that most girls can't see those fragrances anymore, but I still think that they just smell so great and..,... as I have mentioned in all my comments on these scents a thousand times, the girls absolutely dreamlike tasty to bite into the work let ... you know that from me, so you could let yourself nibble quietly times, but no, ... hmpf! D
With the alien scents for the gentlemen I could hope to look exactly like that now (so for you ladies, so that you can also find me to nibble on :DD But once again no, you or rather rather woman likes DonJuanDeCats cat, ... this furry son of a bitch ... *sigh*). But first, enough moaning. How did Alien Fusion become that way, which makes a great optical impression with its great, almost neon-blue color?
Well... unfortunately the bottle is the best thing about the fragrance, to say it in advance... but at least the fragrance is not a complete disaster!
At the beginning I smell some sweet cinnamon, a lot of ginger and a synthetic sweet note, which I can't determine, but I know this fragrance mainly from summery (and also synthetic) scents, for example from the summer editions of the CK One scents. It's got a kind of smell that makes me feel like... believe it or not, the waffle of an ice cream. It's almost as if you're eating ice cream, almost finished devouring the ice cream scoops, and now you're starting the waffle of ice cream that's being filled by the rest of the ice cream. Of course, all this can only seem so to me, but I just didn't know how to describe this kind of sweetness differently. Anyway, this is not a bad scent in itself, it looks nice, but it also has a big portion of synthetic.
Unfortunately, after about ten minutes there is still a scent that has disturbed me personally very much. He sometimes even smelled disgusting like... oh, that's really hard to describe again... so I'll just say like a wet-sucked thumb that starts to smell disgusting! :D Sorry, but I just couldn't think of anything better! DD (Maybe this is a too high dosed ginger, which may have tilted a little in the bottle, I don't know, if I should test the scent again, then I'll correct it here accordingly, if it should smell differently during further tests!
Fortunately, this strange scent disappears very soon. And especially from the base, the fragrance then smells much better again. It still smells like this waffle note, which is a kind of powdery tonka bean scent, along with other sweet scents, all of which, as I said, are quite synthetic. I couldn't smell leather at all, and I don't really find the smell woody either. As I said, the base is nice again, but also highly irrelevant, because you know this kind of scent now from everywhere.
The Sillage and the shelf life:
The Sillage is good, the scent is quite good to smell for a few hours, and despite the peculiar beginning I don't find the scent really overwhelming, because the bad smelling scent disappears again. The shelf life is six to seven hours, which is above average or still good.
The bottle is the real secret star here. It has the shape of the first bottle of Alien Man. So it's rectangular and rather angular and looks like a spacy crystal in a wonderful blue color. If it were light blue, I would have said as a known nerd for sure that it would fit well to Superman's Fortress of Solitude... :D
The spray head has been integrated into the bottle, as is usual with Mugler, so that there is no lid. As I said, this is an excellent bottle that should also look extremely good on the shelf.
Okay... uh no!
Alien Fusion for men is a fragrance that is a bit boring (at least for being a Thierry Mugler) and also smells synthetic. Well, the synthetics don't bother me as much here, as they remind me of CK One summer scents, which aren't really great scents, but they aren't that bad either, so that you could use a CK One summer scent (or a summer scent from Issey Miyake etc.) one summer or the other. Because you shouldn't expect much, but in my opinion you don't make a mistake with these scents, because they are loose and fresh and so seen already quite nice. And Mugler fragrances always had something synthetic about them anyway, but with this fragrance here the synthetics are more pronounced than one is used to.
It is especially suitable as a party and night scent (for younger ones) in spring and summer, but Alien Fusion unfortunately costs a bit more than the other scents like CK, Issey Miyake, Jil Sander or other brands with similar smelling scents, so it's not worth the price for me for the scent... but you can still take a "look" at it.
I had liked the first Alien Man fragrance better here, although the first fragrance was also quite synthetic. The best thing about this fragrance here is rather the excellent bottle, unfortunately not more. Maybe I'm disappointed because I expected too much because of the beautiful bottle and I liked most of the Alien women's fragrances so much that I had expected something great for men (...let's see how Alien Fusion is for women...).
And I'm also disappointed that I'm apparently not going to make a tasty impression on ladies, I think, anyway, where ... this synthetic sweetness is not so bad now ... comes to me sniff ... :DD
That was it then also already from me and I wish you all a beautiful evening, as well as also a beautiful weekend :)
