Words: Emily Venables
From fashion to fragrance, everything Thierry Mugler has put his name to has resulted in something outstanding, exceptional, and as often described… out of this world.
Since the release of his first perfume, Angel, in 1992, Mugler has been taking us all on an olfactory journey of distinguished delights with his revolutionary use of gourmand and floral notes.
At The Perfume Shop, Mugler is one of our all time favourites and we’re proud to introduce you to his collection from Angel to Alien.
Angel Eau de Parfum
Angel may have been Mugler’s first foray into the world of fragrances back in 1992, but it’s gone on to be one of the most sought-after scents of today at The Perfume Shop. Often credited as the first notable gourmand scents ever released, Angel features a delectable blend of tempting red fruits, smooth caramel and honey, irresistible praline, and vanilla all packaged up in a shooting star bottle for an undeniable touch of Mugler’s galactic style.
Angel Nova Eau de Parfum
Almost 20 years after the release of the original Angel scent comes Angel Nova. The striking Eau de Parfum has taken a step away from the original gourmand notes and instead dances between radiant, feminine florals and powerful, woody aromas. Not only does Angel Nova take us on a new sensory path, but it also introduces us to the use of upcycling - an innovative distilling process which saves natural resources and also produces a unique, new scent! You can always count on Mugler to add an eco-friendly touch to his perfumes!
A* Men Eau de Toilette
Following the success of Angel in ’92, Mugler released his first male fragrance A* Men in 1996. Rich and forever tempting, the masculine scent captivates with bursts of lavender, peppermint, coffee, caramel, and Tonka bean. As with all Mugler’s scents, A*Men comes in a refillable bottle giving it a sustainable edge against the forever expanding world of fragrances.
Alien Eau de Toilette
Radiant and warm in its aroma and housed in a beautiful purple amethyst-like bottle, Alien is (as you would imagine) a forced to be reckoned with. Indian jasmine gives it a sparkling sweetness at the top, cashmere wood in the heart piles on the alluring sensuality and its rich, earthy base is enveloping and slightly addictive. Just like with Angel, Alien has been turning heads since its release and with just one spray, you’ll understand why!
Alien Fusion Eau de Parfum
Taking inspiration from the beauty of a solar eclipse, Alien Fusion is both radiating and powerful! Intense ginger and cinnamon open this fragrance, so if you like your perfumes with a hint of heat then this Mugler creation is for you. Rich spices are joined by fabulous florals, creating a spicy Floriental perfume that we think you’ll love to the moon and back!
Alien Man is as distinctive and powerful as of all Mugler’s creations, however on this occasion, this modern-masculine scent elevates notes of wood, smoke, and a touch of sweetness to create a long-lasting scent with real warmth and richness. It’s sensual, without being overpowering, making it ideal as an autumnal signature scent or a date night winner.
Aura Eau de Parfum
Once again, Mugler’s innovated use of ingredients strike again with Aura – a rich, Oriental perfume that was created to reflect the power and strength of a woman. The standout ingredient we’re talking about is tiger liana, and before Aura, it had never been used in perfume and we’re not sure why - it’s outstanding! Found in the botanical heart, it adds a smokey, sugary element to the perfume which when combined with rhubarb leaves and orange blossom it creates a truly magnetic charm!
