If I had to choose one perfume to use for the rest of my life, it would be Alien by Mugler. There are not many fragrances who push boundaries and polarize as much as 2005 released Alien does and that's what I love about this icon: It's not everybody's darling, but something so edgy you either love or hate it. For years, I've been refilling my Alien bottle again and again and I always make sure to never run out of my signature scent, no matter how many other exciting perfumes I discover.

Whenever there is a new addition to the Alien family, I am among the first ones to test it. The danger of using the same perfume for a long time is that you might stop to notice it and trying reinterpretations helps to keep the excitement alive. They mean the possibility to discover new sides of a perfume you kind of know, familiar yet new. Sometimes you might be disappointed and think it's not as good as the classic, sometimes you might like it even better.

So I got really excited when I saw the iconic bottle in its stunning red colour for the first time and wondered what Fusion would be. Let's start with a few facts: Alien Fusion for her is an oriental floral spicy creation, it's a warm fragrance with ginger and cinnamon as top notes, orange blossom and tuberose as middle notes and white amber and vanilla as base notes. Mugler calls it the most flamboyant take on Alien yet and reviewers recon this might be the Alien for the new generation.

If I had to describe the fragrance in three words they would be spicy, warm and floral. Where the classic Alien is a blast of jasmine, this one seduces with orange blossoms and tuberose. It's slightly less edgy than the classic, but it keeps the beloved dichotomy of Alien at heart.

I love the spice twist with the ginger and the cinnamon. Despite those warm notes, I think it works very well as a summer fragrance since it's less intense and heavy than the classic. It makes me think of a walk on the surface of a foreign desert planet and sitting in the sand while watching a beautiful sunset. Alien Fusion, you're a wonderful addition to my Alien collection!
