For a lot of Thierry Mugler fragrance fans, Mugler Alien Goddess is the ultimate summer scent. One year after its launch, it’s been amplified with Thierry Mugler Alien Goddess Intense, a new scent that has completely hooked my floral-loving senses.
Alien Goddess Intense is similar to Alien Goddess but with a bold, powerful personality and less coconut (though that delicious note is still there, thankfully). As a huge fan of the original scent – I have worn it on every holiday I’ve been on since it launched – I can imagine wearing the Intense version in the evenings or on days I need to feel my most confident self. Read on to find out why with my full Alien Goddess Intense review…
This Fragrance Smells Like…
Opening with a rush of citrusy bergamot that’s both tangy and bright, the Alien Goddess Intense fragrance is given a sweet edge thanks to the delectable creamy coconut note – it isn’t as prominent as in the original Alien Goddess, but still leaves a delicious creaminess. The heart features Goddess’ central Superinfusion of Jasmine Grandiflorum accord, which is joined by a refreshing new jasmine tea facet, resulting in a scent that pulses with silky white floral tones which dominate until the base warms its way to the surface. Vanilla, benzoin and cashmeran make a rich and sensuous base that has a warm, woody depth without being sickly sweet, thanks to the opulent and uplifting cashmeran.
What’s The Story Behind This Scent?
Designed to evoke optimism and kindness in the wearer, Mugler Alien Goddess Intense takes the original Alien Goddess perfume to new heights. This intense version of the Alien Goddess perfume is inspired by the hope that comes from extraordinary things.
You Will Love This If…
Alien Goddess Intense smells good enough to eat and, if you love solar scents, Alien Goddess Intense is a must have. Fans of the original Alien Goddess will adore the nod to the coconut-heavy original, but the Intense has its own personality as it takes on a warmer, richer and much more opulent base.
This Perfume Smells Similar To:
There is a similar summery feel to the original Alien Goddess with lashings of citrus and coconut in the opening spritz, but the dry down of Alien Goddess Intense feels similar to Yves Saint Laurent Libre Intense due to the jasmine and vanilla combination – Alien Goddess Intense has a more woody feel, though.
Is Alien Goddess Intense Unisex?
Lovers of sweet, rich scents will adore this fragrance, but its heavy white floral signature has a traditionally more feminine feel.
What’s The Longevity Like?
The Eau de Parfum lingers on your skin for 6-7 hours, becoming more woody as it wears.
What’s Special About The Bottle?
Recalling the original Alien Goddess design, Mugler’s combination of gold and glass is ethereal and striking. Alien Goddess Intense has a darker amber-copper to gold ombre effect compared to the original, which perfectly reflects the rich fragrance within.
The outer design is recyclable.
