    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!

    There's a rich, dark, smoky vanilla wafting from my arm right now, & it's delish!

    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.
