The second major women’s fragrance to join the Thierry Mugler galaxy in 2005, Alien emerged as a talisman fragrance and a revelation.

The Taste of Fragrance 2011
Alien 1

Heightened by the solar, floral notes of jasmine sambac mixing with the cashmeran wood and the depth of white amber, this peaceful, serene fragrance is given a savory-sweet reflection in its ‘Taste of Fragrance’ version.

To embellish the wealth of the amber tones, the perfumer imagined a salted butter caramel, like the juice that forms when a dish is caramelized with sugar or honey at the end of the cooking process.

Pierre Aulas, Olfactory Artistic Director for Thierry Mugler Parfums
Salted butter caramel was chosen as the taste enhancer. Added to the original formula, it turns Alien’s amber tones into deliciously velvety notes.

In addition to Alien’s prime components of jasmine sambac and amber, the fragrance features citrus fruits and spices. As for Angel’s signature patchouli, the cashmeran wood is somewhat set apart as it is challenging to refl ect in taste.

Inspiration of Hélène Darroze, Grand Chef, Paris
Listening to your description, I immediately think of a dessert… I want creaminess and delicacy, a perfect harmony between citrus, flowers and this dark note, which awaken the salted butter caramel. A bean could be at the heart of the recipe to translate the cashmeran wood. It will be a surprise!
