Thierry Mugler is a fashion designer. The Mugler brand also offers some stunning fragrance collections including the classic Angel fragrance.
The Alien fragrance collection includes an eau de toilette, eau de parfum, deodorant, body lotion, shower gel and body cream. The various products can be used alone or together to layer the scent and increase intensity.
Alien is described as being 'mysterical and exotic'. The fragrance notes include jasmine sambac, cashmerian wood and white amber. This fragrance is infused into the matching body cream. The body cream is enriched with a creamy formulation which helps lock in moisture whilst leaving the skin beautifully soft and fragranced.
The Alien fragrance collection can be identified courtesy of the stunning, gem-like designed bottles. The body cream, is a little different to the other body products. The cream is presented in an amethyst inspired jar which is visually stunning and of a high quality. The actual cream rests within an internal container which keeps it fresh. It looks incredibly expensive and is perfect on display on any dressing table.

I am a huge fan of the Thierry Mugler brand and own/have owned the majority of the popular fragrances and matching body products. My current stash of beauty creams includes a little pot of Alien Body Cream which came as part of a gift set - that stunning jar is on my Christmas wish list though, even just for the jar itself! Having experienced the delights of both the EDP and the shower gel, I was most looking forward to sampling this stunning body cream.
I use body lotions and creams daily and tend to reserve my highly scented, expensive creams for evenings or special occasions. Opening the pot reveals a glossy white body cream. I do not need to use a lot each time. The texture of this body cream is amazing - it has a creamy, bouncy surface and it is perfectly easy to dip a finger in and scoop a small blob out. The best way to describe this body cream is 'simply luxurious' in every way possible. It is rich, silky smooth and spreads like an absolute dream across my rough, dry skin. It is very soothing and cooling.
Despite being thick and creamy on application, this body cream sinks effortlessly into my thirsty skin. It leaves no residue behind but my skin feels highly moisturised deep down and perfectly silky smooth on the surface. My skin feels pampered and it is obvious that I have applied a decent, high quality moisturising cream as opposed to a cheap body lotion. My skin looks healthy and the effects can still be detected up to 24hours later - it is very hydrating which I expect from a body cream of this price.
The Alien scent shines through perfectly and compliments the shower gel and EDP. It does provide a gorgeous base for the EDP and allows the fragrance to last much longer on my skin. Personally, I love the Alien fragrance. Whilst not as classic as Angel, it does have its own characteristics. The overall scent is quite warming and perfect for using in the evening in my opinion. The jasmine adds a sensual touch which when blended with the white amber and cashmerian woods, the scent comes across as being quite dreamy and slightly sweet. The scent flows well and I can still detect it, albiet less concentrated, on my skin after 12hours of wear. During its time on my skin, this body cream radiates a beautiful strength of fragrance.
Whilst very expensive, I consider this body cream to be worth every penny. It makes my skin feel fantastic and is beautifully perfumed without overpowering. It is pleasant to wear for a stand alone fragrance and is quite modern. It would make an ideal gift for an Alien fan (like myself) and is simply a true treat to use occasionally. I always feel special when using applying and wearing this body cream so it comes with a high recommendation from myself.
