Alien belongs to the new generation of fragrances, which has no more olfactory course to offer, i.e. it came, saw....and triumphed, wants to plow allzugerne in the long run the skin, take the hair in fittings, the armpits to conquer, in short, the whole material to cells intersperses. No tender caresses of the Hesperides, cuddly Röslein, or delicately graceful jasmine, no, the whole complexity comes armored with chain rattles on the respective object. Alien captivates by its extreme durability, by its mocking Sillage, here was not saved on ingredients, on molecules, which stick like Pattex, which accelerate the Sillage still with 100 kilojoules on the last smell molecules. The targeted customer should have something for her Euro, she should be made smell-proof.
The scent in the FAZ revealed itself to me as a little letter with the words Tirez moi, poussez sur le flacon.... i did as brag... and my dog, who always has different scent preferences than me, but sometimes lies down in my faithful Chanel 19 arms, I thought to feel a little distance.
No comparison to the French perfumery art of the Polge Clan, or Roudnitzka, i.e. the elaboration of the fragrance, the pointed use of certain nuances, the combination of the ingredients with one's own skin, with sweat, with the personal aura of the wearer, which e.g. dominates the House Chanel in the most beautiful way. Even delicate fragrances like Chanel No. 5 L'Eau captivate with their excellent craftsmanship, very subtle and tender armor movements and inner smile. With Alien a whole bear family or better said a crocodile population rocks here, because said models can smell badly.... but I'm sure we'll perceive the alien.
Well, a scent, or a scent for young girls, that wants to be consumed in masses, that is often noticed in trains or trams, that might be worn in discos, or at music events of the same category, here: Mainly loud, bass drone at 190 dB. Not so much a scent for human dog noses who sniff a scent, who draw it in internally, break it down into components, rejoice at the top note, acknowledge the heart note with a smile and finally simply want to snog the base note. So there is for every nose, you might think, a lid and so it is also okay. The extraterrestrial polarizes, as is the case with extraterrestrials, the price is okay, because you get perfume here in high concentration, with the statement "Clear the path, I'll pass by here" and with a conclusive olfactory experience. The turn of the millennium has opened up completely new dimensions of perception here. Fortunately, there are houses like, I would almost say, Guerlain.... but I prefer to say Roja Dove... who specialize in nasal adventures
