This Dreamy Scent Is Guaranteed To Make You The Best-Smelling Person In The Room Tonight
It’s the eternal question we’ve all asked ourselves at some point: Which perfume should I wear tonight?
We know that trying to find the perfect scent to handle the heat on a night out can be… tricky. You want something that’s strong but feminine, a little spicy and sexy — something that commands attention without being overpowering.
There are loads of fragrances on the market and we’ve done A LOT of spritzing at Women’s Health HQ to narrow down our favourites. The one that makes our “sexiest scents list” every year without fail? MUGLER’s Alien Eau de Parfum.
We’re not the only ones who are obsessed with the EDP. The fragrance, originally launched in 2005, has literally gained a cult-like following… and for good reason:
It hits all the right notes
The sensual amber, deep musky wood and delicate floral note (sambac jasmine sustainably sourced from India) strike that perfect balance between sugar and spice.
Basically, it’s irresistible!
It embodies the spirit of sustainable luxury
The brand has long been trying to make ethical changes in the industry. In 1992, the revolutionary MUGLER Fountain disrupted perfume conventions by making fragrances accessible to all with reusable bottles that could be refilled at a widespread selective distribution network. The Fountain provided almost 500,000 Alien refills in 2018, which means half a million bottles saved.
They also recently tweaked the design of the iconic amethyst bottle so that it’s more environmentally friendly:
- It’s now 100% recyclable — thanks to the removal of the claw at the base of the bottle.
- By removing the claw and lowering the ‘shoulders’ of the bottle, the brand has saved 17 tons of plastic.
- It’s also helped save 5 tons of CO2! Getting rid of the claw means MUGLER does not have to ship an additional 6,400 km by truck to the contractor that attaches them to the bottles.
It champions strong women
The Alien woman embodies “creativity and spiritual strength”. The new face of the fragrance is British model Jourdan Dunn, who represents an empowered vision of contemporary womanhood for the brand. As a mother, model and entrepreneur, Jourdan’s stratospheric journey of creative achievement reflects the unwavering optimism and limitless energy of the Alien woman.
