    Default Alien vs. Ange ou Démon

    So, I sampled Alien yesterday, at my local parfumerie,
    and since it had gotten so much praice here on BN, I
    was really looking forward to sniffing this strange scent.

    But to me, it smells exactly like Ange ou Démon; the
    topnotes, if nothing else. Did Givenchy really rip off
    Mugler when creating their fragrance in 2006? One
    year after Alien.

    Or is it just me?!

    Personally I can´t see (sniff) the similarity, but hope someone else can enlighten you...
    On my skin Ange ou Demon is much more of a vanillic gourmand scent, while Alien is a jasmine sillage monster.

    I wear both and do see a similarity, but they are definitely not the same. On me, Alien is sweet. Ange Ou Demon is spicy on me with a lil bit of the sweetness. I rarely get compliments when I wear Ange Ou Demon, but I always get complimented when I wear Alien. I love them both. Alien is my signature : )

    Well Ange ou Demon turns into orange cream soda on me. Alien gives me a synthetic jasmine thing. So for me nothing similar at all.
    Well appart from I can't wear either.

    I wear Alien all the time, it is my Winter perfume, associates with holiday season. On me Alien starts out as a sweet jasmine, different from any other jasmine perfume I've smelled. I have never experienced it as synthetic and in cool damp weather it smells like jasmine bush I stuck myself in as a kid walking home from the Baltic beaches. Then the jasmine disappears (I wish it stayed longer!) and I get sweet slightly woody amber accord. It is the sweetest and the most prominent amber I've ever smelled! And it stays that way forever. Well, maybe not forever, but definitely 24 hours plus.
    BTW, a fairy whispered me in a dream that you'll be getting a sample of this one in the mail!

    Ange ou Demon I had a chance to sample. It starts super woody on me, not sweet, pretty dramatic and dry. After about three hours it becomes sweet and very powdery. I figured, this is supposed to be a transition between Demon and Angel? A path from one to another?
    So, to me they smell nothing alike - the powderiness of the Angel part is not obviously floral to me (although I am sure that now I would detect more flowers in it!) and the woodiness of the Demon is not sweet at all, in fact I thought at first it would be a scrubber, but I knew, based on the name, that there will be a trick so I waited patiently.

    Ah, BTW, Alien reminds me most of Bvlgari Jasmin Noir if I have to make a point of reference. To my nose, Alien is more jasmine still.

    I have to agree with Divatologist here.

    Alien is sorta brash to me. Ange ou Demon more smooth in its sweetness. I dont like Alien at all.

    Oh, no, you didn't! Cool, then I can sample them on each arm,
    to see, if they are indeed as close to one another, as I thought!

    No and no on both accounts. Sorry to be a wet blanket.

    Oooooh yessss I did!
    Yes, as long as you have Ange ou Demon in your collection, you'll be able to test it side by side with Alien, and if the sample is not big enough, I can get you more of it
