Most Helpful Positive Review The best smelling perfume in the world!
This has become my signature. I can't stop smelling it. First of all , the fact that its refillable makes me smile. I always get asked every time I leave my apartment what Im wearing. I can't stand a floral smell, It gives me a headache so I go more towards woodsy warm smells. This smell just makes me so happy! I love the bottle, I love the designer, and I love the name. Also, purple is my favorite color. Please don't stop carrying this!
Most Helpful Critical Review I thought the same thing as other reviewers who....
I thought the same thing as the other reviewers who said it's an "elderly woman/grandma" scent!! IMO, it smells like very outdated, toilet water that women in their 80's and 90's used to wear back in the 1970's/1980's. I was hoping to love this like I love Angel, but NO! Don't even like, can't tolerate. I hope I can give it away to someone who actually likes it! It also gave me a headache within moments of smelling it. Love the bottle though. Way too overpowering & I regret the purchase. I'll stick with my favs...Calvin Klein Euphoria, Mugler Angel & Gucci Premiere.

This is an alluring, sensual floral mixed with a sweetness that will be sure to attract many people. Its addictive! And it does NOT smell like an old lady. It smells incredible.
My favorite scent

Daily use, just a spritz or two so I'm not marinating in perfume. Bottle is supposed to be refillabe, wish Ulta offered that.

12/10 wow. I have been on the hunt for years for a fresh scent that doesn't smell too floral or fruity or too strong of that alcohol smell many fresh perfumes have where it almost smells like a cleaning product. This one smells energizing and uplifting to me, very fresh and clean where it is a perfect balance of floral and a hint of a woody smell. The amber note makes it very alluring. I am not a fan of strong musky smells but the wood and amber notes add the perfect warmth to the floral scent. This perfume is incredible. If you've had a hard time like me finding a perfume because you don't know where you fit into the "floral" "sweet" "musk" "fresh" categories but you know you aren't looking for a heavy gourmand scent, then this one is a great blend of all the categories in my opinion.

It really does have an "old lady smell." I smelled a display perfume and thought it smelled good but I think I smelled the eau de toilette (also really hard to tell smells through a mask...) I got home and used one squirt on my wrist and regretted it. The smell is strong and not pleasant. I had to return it the next day.
I'm obsessed. Been wearing for 15 years.

My 8 year old daughter loves the way I smell so much she makes me spray her toys and her occasionally.
Sexy, unique, scrumptious.

Okay y'all..... listen. This perfume should never be a blind buy based on raving reviews. As you can see in the reviews, it is a very polarizing fragrance. You either are obsessed with it, or you despise getting one whiff of it. Me, I am obsessed with this fragrance and my boyfriend too. This perfume will smell like booboo if you just sniff it out of the bottle and gag a little as you set it back down. What you should do is not smell it at all, spray one spray on one wrist and don't rub it in the other. Let it sink in and mix with your body chemistry. Wait an hour if you can and then smell and devour the scent on your wrist. It smells nothing like it smells out of the bottle. It is absolutely divine! Not for teenagers or early 20's. It's incredibly intriguing and sexy. I'm 36 and my boyfriend eats me up every time I wear this..... which is every day now lol. It drives him crazy and he follows me around and won't stop smelling me and inhaling me. The name of this perfume is perfect. Alien. It's different and not like anything else. I love reading the reviews Of women who absolutely hate it. We don't want to be wearing what everyone else wears. I'm telling you, this fragrance is everything. I can't see a shy or a mousy woman wearing this. This is for a powerhouse. A woman who knows what she wants.... and what she wants is a lifelong supply of Alien Eau de Parfum. Lol anyways, give it a chance and don't sniff it out of the bottle and wince. Put it on and then smell what it turns into in your skin. God, I love it!!!!!!

I spray on each side of my neck, and on my chest, and clothes. I get a lot of attention!!
purrrty from LA
Very Oriental. I like it, my bf likes it. It smells more mature despite it's bottle design. I don't find it sexy, but very pretty and womanly. I just like sweeter scents. Even though it's not my go to, it is still a high quality perfume to be considered. It reminds me of a fancier version of Micheal Kors sexy amber.
not a fan if smell
shai from chicago
the scent is genuinely atrocious and just overall too overwhelming in my opinion.
The best :)
Madds from Indianapolis
I've been using this perfume for six years. I'm literally allergic to everything on this earth. I can't use most scented lotions, body washes, women's deodorant, certain laundry detergents, certain makeup, certain skincare products, even some essential oils. This perfume however does not break me out in a rash like other things would. It doesn't smell too strongly. My boyfriend loves it. I couldn't ask for a better perfume. Definitely a 10/10 would recommend.

Found this as a sample In a magazine about 4 years ago. Loved it and have gotten comments from people walking by or who are standing nearby. I ask if it's strong and they say "no delicious". Every body chemistry is different but for me this is my forever perfume!!
salllly from Michigan
this perfume smells so bad. I work in the makeup industry and I can smell it from a mile away. everyone in my store hates when people wear it and we HATE refilling it. it inevitably gets on our hands and we want to gag. it smells like horrible nasty old lady smell from the 50's. I despise this more than anything I've ever smelled in my life.
Jasmine from Colorado
I bought this perfume thinking it would be exactly what everyone was raving about. The bottle is beautiful but the smell inside of it... Did not appeal to me at all. It's smells very powdery and white floral- something my grandma wouldn't even wear. And when I tried to scrub it off, it wouldn't budge! The projection was so loud I was almost embarrassed to walk into a room with people in it. I'm not sure if it's because this perfume has been reformulated or if it's really just this bad originally (which would be hard to believe). I returned it!
Tracey from San Angelo, TX
I bought a big sample package of about 25 scents. Size is like one you'd receive in the mail. This scent was one of them. I absolutely fell in love with it. I was looking for a new scent as I have recently gotten a divorce. After 20 some years of wearing Red Door (Elizabeth Arden), I didn't want to wear it anymore. It made me think of my ex. I'm so glad I bought the gift set. This is now my new go to scent.

So clean and fresh!
An Arrangement of Plastic Jasmine
Bacchante from Alaska
I adore jasmine scents. My husband, somehow, does not. I drool for really good natural jasmine blends- the more indolic and dirty the better. I can be just beside myself with a sort of vain lust after dabbing on some jasmine blended with Siberian Musk. My friends feel the same way. My husband's reaction? "You smell like sunscreen." The issue here is that my husband is an idiot. But Mugler is a genius. How do I know? Because Alien is a jasmine scent that somehow doesn't smell like jasmine at all. It doesn't smell like dewy pitate on Kaua'i. It doesn't smell like a beautiful woman sipping tea in Fez. It has none of that organic jasmine magic. It smells...Alien! I call it plastic jasmine, although it doesn't smell like plastic either. It's a very clean jasmine, but still has the alluring sexiness jasmine lovers know all about. Sexy, but fresh and young. If you are younger and better rounded jasmines smell too genuinely floral, try this. It has a very modern brightness.
KyndKrystal from Weedsport, NY
I can't decide if I really like this fragrance or not. It's just somewhere in the middle for me. One second I think I enjoy it and the next I don't. To me it almost smells like black licorice and I hate black licorice. But there's other spices going on with it too that sort of warp that scent. I definitely feel like it's oriental and a bit sweet. I could easily imagine going to a shop and finding incense sticks that smells like this.
A jasmine lover's fragrance
CaraM80 from NYC
Alien is one of my favorite fragrances. Jasmine, the main note, can come across as narcotic or indolic to some, especially as this scent hits hard immediately but the sandalwood and amber add a warmth that's almost comforting. This is a great cold weather fragrance and is perfect for a night out. It has great sillage and longevity, especially when sprayed on clothes, so a little goes a long way.
**My bottle was made before Mugler was purchased by L'Oreal so I don't know if the formula has actually changed.
***For those looking for something similar but much softer, try Donna Karan Cashmere Mist
A must get !
Sam 60 from Massachusetts
Such a beautiful captivating scent! You turn heads with this perfume girl just make sure to get the EDP (eau de parfum) version.. very long lasting! I'm definitely a fan of Mugler fragrances they create quality perfume. Don't go off the initial spray! Trust me give it time to dry down.. you or your man won't regret it 🤪
Such an intense but calming scent. Your man will love it.
Cc from Nyc
Love this perfume because it has the deep scent but not to the point where it's overwhelming to your smelling sense.
Awesome fragrance, but doesn't last
Treatsa from Mesa, AZ
I absolutely love this fragrance, too bad it doesn't last very. Too expensive to keep spritzing all day long.
CrissyCK from Fort Wayne, IN
I got a sample of this and didn't like it at all. Then I kept smelling it and it really grew on me. The dry down definitely will keep you wanting more. Unique smell, not overly feminine. This is one of my staple daytime winter perfumes.

I get so many compliments, I love it
