It can be a tough decision to decide on what your signature scent will be. Do you stay with something light, floral or citrusy for spring, and switch it up for dark, moody and musky notes come wintertime? Or do you stick with your old favourite, no matter what?
We’ve tried and tested countless fragrances over the years, and still rely on some familiar favourites, those that evoke fond memories and make us feel like us. Mugler’s now iconic Alien, Angel and Womanity are three scents that do just that and ones that will always have a special place on our dressing table. Read on to find out all about the three poignant fragrances…

First released in 1992, Angel is a fragrance that has truly stood the test of time. Thierry Mugler’s first perfume contains a combination of praline and chocolate mixed with a strong accord of patchouli. It soon became a new fragrance type called gourmand, and still remains a bestseller across the globe.
Almost every woman can remember a friend or classmate who wore Angel – it’s the perfect transitional fragrance from girl to woman.

Said to evoke peace and magic, Alien is an instantly recognisable scent with deep, sexy notes that have become a cult favourite.
Described as a fragrance which diffuses peace and magic in its scent, thanks to its talisman fragrance, is it any wonder that Mugler’s Alien is still a cult favourite.
Alien is illuminated by the Jasmine Sambac, with notes of Cashmeran Wood enveloped by the White Amber. The Alien family isn’t limited to just the original – the launch of Alien Goddess brings a woodier scent to the table with Italian bergamot essence, jasmine grandiflorum superinfusion and bourbon vanilla.
The title says it all for this elegant blend of sweet and spicy notes, with notes of figs and caviar coupled with hints of wood. The contrasting elements are all chosen especially to compliment the woman of today. Available with refills, the gorgeous bottle is not only striking but sustainable too.
Mugler’s Les Exeptions collection is worth mentioning for those who favour a more unisex scent. Their Wonder Bouquet and Over The Musk are directly inspired by the unique and avant-garde creative approach of its creator.
