Reviews of Alien Man Fusion

Significantly nasty woody/leathery/spicy-aromatic synth (common) formula. Similar to many nasty Armani, Ferrè, Azzaro, Prada or Issey Miyake of new generation. Coffee provides a tad of metallic vibe, the rest is usual minty cedary synth saffrony leather. Zero creativity. Pass by.

Thierry Mugler Alien Man Fusion (2019) is bound to not be very popular among collectors and enthusiasts of the online fragrance community, which seems par for the course considering that the original Alien Man (2018) wasn't either. I feel that Thierry Mugler may be unintentionally targeting a non-existent market at this point with his masculine high street releases outside the A*Men (1996) range, since so far it seems like they shoot for this theoretical demographic of males who want high-concept artistry in their perfume choices without the clout and perceived "ingredients quality" of a high-priced niche brand. That's to say, they want a fragrance with obvious aromachemical usage warts-and-all like everyone's favorite mass-appeal scents in this price range, but without the actual mass-appeal to conceal it. To be fair, I liked the original Alien Man so I'm not saying this to be mean, but it must be said nonetheless. In the name of being against the grain, Alien Man Fusion presents itself as challenging just as the original Alien Man was, if not more so in many ways. Rather than just being a mostly-sweet composition with one glaringly out-of-place note like Alien Man with its dill, Alien Man Fusion comes across like a house mix of melodies from Alien Man, A*Men, and the original Angel (1992) with a controversial heart.

The opening of Alien Man Fusion is really sharp, a bit powdery, spicy, and difficult to love. Dual perfumers Fanny Bal and Dominique Ropion toss in helonial from Angel to achieve that sharpness, while cinnamon and ginger bring a bit of fire to it all. If this doesn't sound all that great it's because it isn't, but things change rather quickly as a sweet apricot-like osmanthus note comes into the heart, forming the bulk of the scent's character. I am not a lover of osmanthus by default, and it's abuse as the fruity floral go-to note for perfumes marketed to women doesn't help things, but I begrudgingly respect it turning up in a masculine. The osmanthus connects slightly to Hugo Boss The Scent (2015) and its use of "maninka fruit", which isn't my vibe either, but it joins the original Alien Man's cashmeran and leather. The base sees another drastic shift in tone as Alien Man Fusion turns into a skin scent. Coffee from A*Men makes an appearance, drying out and taming the osmanthus heart, while a typical scratchy norlimbanol "beach wood" note holds it down. All told, this is definitely not like anything else in the designer segment, and totally won't peg you as a "bro" if you wear it, but may cause some stares too. Performance is average all around, and that is something I can be thankful for considering the style, but having a lingering scratchiness on skin also isn't great either.

Where would I recommend using this? Well, if I actually enjoyed smelling it, I'd say Alien Man Fusion might make a good fall evening or romantic fragrance, at least more than the original, but I'd not be the one wanting to smell more than a few trails of this in passing so I'm a bad person to ask. I don't hate Alien Man Fusion, and can muster indifference about it due to the creativity and daring that went into it, but I don't find it particularly enjoyable. At best, Alien Man Fusion succeeds at being pleasant and is the furthest thing from linear since it does shift in tonality several times from start to end, but it just feels contrarian and edgy for the sake of it. Perhaps I'm missing the point and this has been the mission statement of Thierry Mugler all along, because we are talking about the same designer who has had some of the most bizarre fashion collections in the history of the modern world, but maybe I had grown used to past creations being at least a modicum of wearable. If you're looking for high art without a high price tag and don't mind that a chemist can pick out everything in your perfume with a sniff, shoot for a bottle of Alien Man Fusion, otherwise I'd stare at this like the trainwreck it is before slowly moving on. Neutral.

Fresh, creamy and sweet in the opening, very pleasant and almost feminine. I get roasting coffee as it goes quickly into the drydown. The roasted coffee hangs around for a few hours. The final stage is a very tame leather with light woody notes. It's all very agreeable and nothing that's really all that daring.

Seems versatile as both a daytime and nighttime scent for all seasons except the high heat because of the creamy nature of the scent.

I find projection to be average but longevity is a little better than that.
