    I smelled this on someone yesterday. The drydown reminded me of Dune Pour Homme, so I came back to this thread. Though Dune Pour Homme has that Reseda strawberriness/tobacconess in the drydown. I was having a real hard time with the musk/ambers on this.

    Hi Nizan, if it is any help Dune is made by Firmenich and Alien by IFF, only thing (in my opinion) these two share are synthetic sandalwood molecules. I'd look for Firmenich's sandalwood molecules. Dune PH is one of my favorites too.

    Btw have you smelled Koumalactone from Firmenich? (Its a nice tonka note, could work in Dune imo)

    I analyses for Alien and say Kephalis is very detected in top note smelled hairspray. This is kephalis? Suspected is Amber Xtreme, a will be going order sample in PSH.
    Jasmine from Alien is toxic grapey-hairspray like overtone, ( MA or Amber Xtreme?)but totally different to jasmine in Pure Poison ( pred: ethyl linalool-hedione-methyl anthranilate-javanol for roundness and riches), in Alien is small doses ethyl maltol, in heart note opposite jasmine.

    I think hairspray note is probably benzyl acetate, often used in hair products plus musks. Grape is the elusive one though as many have commented they smell grape soda initially. Kephalis is an interesting one, I noticed you can use a whole lot without changing the rest of the profile much. Adds nice honeyed texture. Alien came out ten years ago, I suspect IFF decided to release its captive amber xtreme on the tenth anniversary.

    Folks, could it be that they used piconia as cashmeran extender? It seemed like that to me the other day. Could piconia be the reason why cashmeran seems to "cut through" the rest of the scent?

    Amber xtreme <3 is very characteric to Alien to me. You don't remember about natural jasmine sambac absolute, is very strong vibe natural jasmine in Alien of heart-base note.
    I think that amber xtreme is good enhancer for cashmeran and supporting ambergris note without overdose ambroxan.
