Fragrance Of The Month: Thierry Mugler Alien Man EDT

You asked and he answered. After 14 years of will-he, will-he-not anticipation, the house of Thierry Mugler has finally mix-mastered its coveted Alien fragrance into a very unique and special blend just for men. Enter Alien Man EDT.

Powerful and woody with fresh, elegant undertones, this new eau de toilette gives an electric-like vibration when it’s first spritzed on. Earthy, herbal, botanical and zesty, notes of beech tree and anise, thyme and mint, lavender and dill and lemon kick start this scent and its invigorating appeal. Then, a compilation of spicy pepper with intimate leather and cashmere wood, green geranium and apricot-smelling osmanthus blossoms soon come forward, wafting their sensual quality off the skin and into the air. Later, the scent eases into a warm, familiar and magnetic blend of amber, cashmeran and vanilla. The overall effect is strong and confident, smooth and sexy, passionate and inviting, like nothing you’ve ever sprayed on before.

Which shouldn’t come as a surprise. It’s a Mugler after all.

The French designer understands the power of sexuality in perfumery possibly better than other nose. His near 50-year brand contains over 150 flacons and counting, while Mugler the man is as equally renowned for his fetishist fashions (Demi Moore’s infamous million dollar black dress in the 1993 movie Indecent Proposaland Cardi B.’s pink and black shell dress and see-through cheetah print cat suit at the 2019 Grammys, anyone), as he is for his insightful and artfully cultured approach to what men and women want in an olfactory experience. Captured in a deep amethyst-blue, geometrically shaped oblong bottle, Alien Man doesn’t disappoint. On any level.

Thierry Mugler Alien Man EDT is $99 for 100 ml, available at Shoppers Drug Mart stores across Canada.
