No. Just no.
There are scents that raise questions. Mostly in the sense that you like them in principle, but the question remains: When should I wear this scent? Where, on what occasion? At a meeting with who?
Alien, on the other hand, provokes a completely different question for me, which is: Why? Why on earth can't this pushy powder monster be killed? For years you've been smelling it again and again, in the subway, on the street, at the shop assistant in the lingerie shop, and I haven't been a bit warm with this fragrance since I first got a taste. Alien's just too much. Of what? By...herself. When I smell Alien, I feel stunned, distracted, but not, as with many commentators, in a positive way. The only thing you could praise about Alien, the outstanding Sillage, is exactly what makes him my nightmare. He kills everything around him. My sense of smell, and my good mood right to it.
I say this only reluctantly, but apart from the Sillage, the durability of the fragrance is also extraordinary. For anyone who likes him, that's a great selling point. I was afraid after the first and last application that a commercial soap would not be sufficient to wash off the alien without causing massive dehydration damage to my skin.
Furthermore, I have noticed that the people around me, whom I would attest a good perfume taste, find Alien just as unacceptable through the bank as I do. I know there's no arguing about taste. But "Alien" is for me the litmus test, whether I can understand someone's perfume taste only halfway or not.
So to answer the question "Alien?" No. Just no.
