I have an obsession with all things purple or violet. I don’t know how normal people do perfume shopping, but with me it goes like Oh look, a purple bottle! Nah, I don’t like the smell. Lets try the violet one. The only time I would check anything not related to purple is when someone recommended it to me. On the bright side, this saves a lot of time when browsing for a new perfume.
My newest score – Thierry Mugler Alien Eau De Parfum. I like fresh and clean scents, but this winter I wanted something warm and comforting. And this was it. At first it gives a strong smell of jasmine, but then woody, smoky scents pops up. It’s deep, warm, sensual and makes me feel like I’m wrapped up in a cuddly blanket.
The lasting power of it is out of this world. After 6 hours it’s still going strong. Bare in mind, that Alien is loud. One spray is more than enough. If you don’t want to leave a trail of coughing people behind. When not overdone, it smells beautiful.
What is your winter scent?
