eau de parfam

Recently my grand daughter left her favourite perfume at my home.
Before I read the label I tried a spray or two and family and friends commented how lovely the perfume was.

Looking at the label I was surprise to see it was named 'Alien' by Thierry Mugler, made from White Amber & Indian Jasmine Sambac & Cashmeran Wood. " Oh' I thought a very modern Perfume"

When I tell friends it is 'Alien' the look at me in surprise expecting me at my advance age to say 'Attar of Roses', or 'Norfolk English Lavender',especially as I look nothing like an Alien
However, it smells completely different on me and even my Grand daughter did not realize it was her perfume.

I am now going to buy some for myself.

Isn't it funny how perfumes can smell different on different people. All to do with their skin chemistry, I suppose. My mother liked L'aiment (by Coty) and indeed it smelled lovely on her - smelled like cats round a dustbin on me!

I love the bottle, looks just like something from Doctor Who! Their sister perfume is Angel which is very sweet and looks like a star. Clever packaging, both of them.

Angel (also by Thierry Mugler) is lovely too.

Should have called him 'Thierry Mugger' judging by the price...

That's one of my favourites too. I've had it for ages, and I love the elephant lid too!
