Mugler is well known for Angel and Alien Eau De Parfum but this spring the brand has released new limited edition variations featuring delicate craftsmanship. These collectible keepsakes will become the focal point of your vanity or dresser and the dazzling concoctions feature fresh seasonal ingredients that awaken the senses.
Alien is my favorite Mugler perfume because the unique scent is like no other on the market. Usually fragrances have many familiar accords that are quickly distinguishable but this composition rises to a higher level of complexity. Alien Eau Sublime is a new interpretation of the original inspired by the Solar Goddess with energizing notes of mandarin, bitter orange and galbanum balanced with robust jasmine, tiare flower and heliotrope and a base of warm cashmeran wood and white amber. The traditional dark amethyst bottle has had a luminous makeover and now features white crystal and golden hues that coincide with the theme of well-being, sunshine and femininity. This fragrance smells very similar to the original with a lighter, sweeter aroma and perhaps a little more zest. Although it retains a powerful presence without fading much, it is still suitable for both day and evening wear. I hope the next set of products from Mugler showcase different scents instead of a reformulation because it would be nice to smell something completely new. The 60 ml bottle featured here retails for $82.00
A*Men Kryptomint is the male version of Angel. The notes smell similar – albeit more masculine and the cologne is strong, vibrant and revitalizing. The magnificent flask-like bottle features a mysterious crystal star embedded in a bright aqua bottle that seems to come from outer space. I wasn’t sure I'd like the mint but it is well blended with the other notes so you get an initial whiff before it gradually fades into the background discernible only by a hint of freshness. The other accords are Egyptian geranium and Indonesian patchouli for a stimulating intermingling of sweet, and ruggedness. The 100 ml Bottle retails for $99.00.
For those of you who like the Angel Eau De Parfum (original scent) the refillable collector star bottle (35 ml) is now available for $98.00. I love the multidimensional irregular points and when you sit it down the bottle tilts to one side like a stunning gem. I don't care much for this particular scent and much prefer the shooting star gourmand - Angel Eau Sucrée, to read that review click HERE.
