Alien by Thierry Mugler
I rarely review perfumes because they’re too subjective, a great scent can smell awful applied on my body and be amazing on someone else. But I just had to make a comment about the sample I found on Vogue. It’s for Alien by Thierry Mugler.
It’s a spray packet, you lift the tab, push it back down and a small spray comes out of it. I loved it! OK I loved the packaging, not the scent.
Even though the perfume is not for me, I just can’t throw away the sample. I’ll be passing it on to a friend of mine.
Weapons of Mass Seduction
There’s a relatively newcomer to the fragance world, a line called Juliette Has a Gun launched in 2006, but the creator is certainly not new in the perfume industry. Romano Ricci, great-grandson of Nina Ricci, was initiated into perfumery by his grandfather Robert (creator of L’air du Temps). After years of apprenticeship he launched his new project at Colette in Paris.
Ricci’s philosophy approaches perfumery as an inspired art, drawing inspiration from the popular Shakespearian heroine, Juliette. Juliette goes wild as she is transposed into the 21st Century, armed…with a gun (the gun being a metaphor for the perfume). Juliette intrigues the world with her captivating and seductive scents – symbolizing the liberation of women from men and sometimes with a taste of revenge.
This romantic collection includes five original scents:
- Not a Perfume
- Miss Charming
- Lady Vengeance
- Citizen Queen
- Calamity J.
- Midnight Oud
Rechargeable purse fragrance in the shape of a bullet; filled with a special oil you can apply in your pulse points.
Scented Candles with an aproximate burning time of 50 hours, in the following scents:
- Mary Jane
You can find the perfumes in very select locations in the U.S. and you can also order them online through Juliette Has a Gun site.
Sean John Unforgivable
Never in my life I thought I would say this: I love a Sean John fragance. I know! I’m as shocked as you are, but hear me out. I received a small sample of Sean John Unforgivable Shimmer Body Lotion.
