Reviews of Aura

Sweet & green at the same time, the first moments of application. There is a sugary green note, not of rhubarb - Maybe that's the tiger liana? I'm not familiar with it. I don't get any bitterness yet, from rhubarb leaf (other times I wear, this I do straight away).

This frag remains fairly sweet. A boozy vanilla adds some depth later. I have no idea what wolfwood is [either].

This seems to develop a leafier green later, an almost Atlas cedar accord, too. Is this the wolfwood? Who knows. Anyway, the sweetness subsides more and more as this wears on. Aura is an odd one. I like it better some days, more than others.

The first time I tested this I recoiled in horror. The opening was downright awful, wintergreen toothpaste grafted onto a set of abstract tropical florals as conceived by a pyschopath—a hostess gift for the bride of Frankenstein.

But about an hour later it did something weirdly wonderful. It rearranged itself at a cellular level into something that resembled an actual living perfume, albeit a bizarre one, a lush vanillic green that toggled between icy and smokey, sweet and sour, before ultimately ending up as cozy.

That icy aspect really intrigues me. Maybe it's because the second time I wore Aura, during a long walk with my dogs on a 17-degree winter morning, the intense cold somehow tamped the opening down into something way more tolerable, a spectacular display of cool mint and smashed greens.

But what starts off as Snow Queen eventually mellows out into Snow White, a cloud of intensely nuzzle-able bourbon vanilla and soft woods that stays very close to my skin, the kind of fragrance designed to inspire loved ones to bury their noses in our necks at the end of a long day and remark, "Wow, you smell so good I could eat you up."

And double thumbs up for the fantastic, praying-to-the-aliens vibe of the bottle.

I've gone back and forth on this a few times. One day it's love, the next it's not.

Overall though, it keeps drawing me back in. The bizarre green lifesaver/menthol opening is just enough to keep me going back. It's just SO weird. Following that, it morphs into a nicely panel-tested vanilla oriental, with a few tropical florals thrown in. The green candy creeps back in now and then, which keeps it above the boring spectrum. As does the weird wintergreen. Not a mint I typically love, but it's at a hazy, inoffensive volume at this point.

All-in-all, I'll probably shell out for a small bottle. For Mugler, it's easy to wear. The volume doesn't get crazy, the bottle is beautiful, and it's a novel accord I've not encountered before.

Update - bought a bottle (at retail!) and it's love. It's very wearable, yet weird enough to not get boring. I imagine it won't get many good reviews, as it's not "Mugler-weird". Angel typecast Mugler into a niche and it won't be topped. Beautiful, but requires patience.

Like wearing a nice pudding. Pleasant, but not exactly challenging. Bring back Womanity, at least that was interesting.

A green gourmand. I never smelled anything like this before. It's a very interesting fragrance. You can smell the rhubarb and the creamy vanilla simultaneously, and equally. You could imagine it smells like rhubarb pie. It doesn't. It's not cloying. Very well done.
