    Default New Fragrance: Thierry Mugler Alien Essence Absolue

    From fragrantica.com:

    Thierry Mugler adds another edition to the Alien perfume collection (founded with the original Alien from 2005), Alien Essence Absolue, in summer 2012. The new fragrance is described as richly intense, sensual, deep and mysterious.

    The composition is developed by Pierre Aulas from accords of white jasmine flowers, orris root, animalistic black vanilla pod, incense, myrrh, white amber and cashmere wood.

    Top notes: jasmine
    Heart: cashmere, orris root
    Base: black vanilla pod, white amber, myrrh, incense

    The bottle design is inspired by the classic Alien bottled style and gold drops used as talismans in the Orient.

    Alien Essence Absolue is available as 30 and 60 ml Eau de Parfum Intense and a refill of 60 ml.

    I just hope a certain co-worker of mine will not discover this. She bathes herself in the original Alien everyday since 2005 saturating my environement and making me develope a strong aversion to this fragrance. As of today, I've been smelling the original Alien for 2.555 days consecutively...please, give me a break! Please!

    I haven't sniffed all of TM scents but not a fan of any yet. This one sounds a bit appealing though..I would like to sniff it as I do love all of those notes in this one.

    Kiliwia, she doesn't know the secret behind "moderation". She applies ourageous amounts of Alien every day that god puts on heart. As I already said in another thread, she gets to work covered by a massive perfumed shield. So thick that she can't even hear you when you talk to her...dear lord.

    Woohoo, my bottle arrived today! l am so excited!
    l must say the bottle looks beautiful in person, & it fits very snugly into my hand.
    l just applied some half an hour ago, & first impressions are very good indeed. lt's recognisably Alien, with a spicy, peppery edge in the opening, & the woods quite apparent early on. l'm also getting a definite impression of almonds or heliotrope, with a little powder &, l'm glad to report, a whiff of smoke!
    l'll post more impressions later in the Sample of the Day thread, but so far, no regrets on this blind buy!

    I've read in other places that Dominique Ropiuon is the nose for this one. Does anyone know who is the actual nose?

    I tried this at Nordstrom and love it! It may be my favorite version of Alien - very rich and deep.

    I spotted it in Debenhams yesterday. The sa was wearing a special necklace like a gold waterfall idea, Mugler supplied it. I don't like Alien and she said,"Oh its big on the jasmine." So I never bothered to spray any.

    You should give it a try. I was talking to one of the SAs who I know well. She is a big Angel fan, but was never fond of Alien - or any of its previous flankers. But she actually liked this version though.

    I don't like Alien either (too loud and a bit screechy) but I love this. It's richer and creamier than Alien, with noticeable vanilla; it's more of a floral oriental in the same vein as Samsara (but featuring vanilla instead of sandalwood).

    Tried it yesterday!! So pleased to have tried a flanker that actually excites me as much (or just a bit more :P) than the original.
    Really great!! Querky, good quality and addictive. When I try it again I will focus more on the notes I get and will post a review but...

    Let me tell you, I couldn´t stop smelling my wrist every 5 minutes.

    P.S: Anyone who would like to help a poor young boy have a decant of it?? :P:P:P:P

    I was really disappointed but so pleased I didn't blind buy as I was tempted to do. Too synthetic to my nose, I prefer the Salted Caramel flanker

    I also bought big bottle of this for my girlfriend. She has also bottle of original Alien which is one of my favourite scents on women ever but Essence Absolue is even better. Bottled perfection. Just awesome for cold weather. Its still Alien but much warmer with noticable amount of vanilla. If Alien is dirty sexy, Alien Essence Absolue is romantic sexy. If Alien smelled kinda synthetic, vanilla in EA makes it more realistic.

    I just had a chance to try this while traveling...it's been a while since I tried the original Alien but I was never a fan. This is just lovely -- a smooth, glowing jasmine oriental, creamy and delicious. I love the cute bottle and the golden juice. Now I'm interested in trying the other flankers. Any thoughts on how the Cuir version compares?

    I have heard so many good comments on this one...I can't take the original Alien...but this sounds very interesting, and the vanilla sounds smooth.... Will have to get a sample!
