When I had first heard of this release I was eager to try this out as most of my girlfriends wear the female 'Alien' fragrance which if you have smelt it before you will know how distinctive and powerful the scent is!
The opening of the fragrance began with a fresh and spicy burst that had a rather sweet feel on my skin which started off as rather loud and at times a little overwhelming, but after 15/20 minutes or so, it began to settle down into a more herbal, woody scent. As with any fragrance review, I will always be as honest as I can be with regards to my own personal experience with a scent, bearing in mind that different fragrances can perform differently on another person's skin!
With that being said, the projection of Alien Man was a little soft for me and didn't project as loudly as I had imagined it may have done given that it had a sharp, bold opening. Alien Man lasted for up to 1/2 hours on my skin before fading away which was disappointing in itself. However, I did gain a few compliments from wearing this and every so often I did get a rather warm hint of the scent to linger on my clothing!
Overall, I was slightly disappointed with the fragrance as I don't personally feel it lived up to expectations. Perhaps that is my own fault due to holding the female Alien in such high regard with how distinctive and recognisable that fragrance is!
Mugler: Alien Man is available in 50ml, 100ml and is also available in a Body Spray and Hair and Body Shampoo, both of which are lightly scented and are the perfect addition to add another dimension to the fragrance. The Alien Man bottle is also refillable which allows you keep reusing!
