Very helpful Review
Every beginning is hard
Alien and I didn't have it easy. I started my perfume taster journey with a very cheap dupe brand, to first look basically which directions I like and which not. Among them was a dupe to Alien. I liked the basic direction but unfortunately it gave me a headache and had such a "cheap smell", like all the dupes I tested by the way. They were all so bad that I could not even use them up, but in the garbage.
I then found this forum (hallelujah;-)) and the Souk and started ordering original samples, which definitely flattered my nose more. An Alien, however, was never among them, because I had the headache still well in memory. Plus, I found the bottle so unaesthetic that I wrote it off completely.
Until.... one day.... i ordered samples from a dear perfumer here and bravely ordered Alien as well. Her collection was so big, I wanted so many samples and thought it was worth the risk to add those. Thanks at the point for the great Souk experience.
Skeptical and brave at the same time, I sprayed Alien directly onto my skin, ready to jump and wash it right off. But what was it? Sensual, warm, sexy, from headache or cheap undertones far and wide no trace. I was surprised and boldly sprayed after. The scent remained very linear became minimally woody in the drydown but always remained equally feminine and seductive. Also the durability and the sillage are excellent.
You guessed it...after two days of wrestling with me because of this awful bottle, I ordered a 60 ml bottle and the next surprise was already waiting: the bottle is totally beautiful face to face, much more beautiful than in the photos. So I was blown away again.
Since then, I wear Alien almost every day. This fragrance awakens something in me. When I put it on, I immediately take on a different attitude, internally and felt externally. It makes me feel so feminine and sensual, feelings which I appreciate but which usually get lost in the stressful hamster wheel of everyday life with a job, family, uni and now Corona. I spray it on and everything seems clearer, deeper, more meaningful. It contours and highlights everyday life. Thus I direct my attention when wearing to more essential things, feel more than to think, am more than just to function.
It is by far the most sensual fragrance in my small collection so far, and I can wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone looking for something along these lines. Test it out, don't be put off by the packaging and be brave. It's worth it
