New Alien Eau Sublime Review

In 2017, Alien's Solar Goddess radiates her energy through a new limited edition creation: Alien Eau Sublime, inspired by the sun at its zenith and created by Dominique Ropion, the perfumer of the original Alien.

The new Alien Eau Sublime arrived in light shimmering colors with a white gradient color overlay spreading up from the bottom of the bottle. This new color scheme reflects in the composition: Alien's signature notes of jasmine, amber and cashmeran are doused in a light powder of unknown nature. It is very soft and immensely pleasant, and very wearable unlike its forbear, which requires a certain placement of stars, at least for me, to wear.

The first blast is citrusy and even slightly green, but it does not much refer to natural scents; it is dusty and blurry, and, yes, solar, because it is not cuddling, you always feel the power and support of the glorious original.

The union of jasmine plunged in white amber, both active and forceful, is less persistent in Eau Sublime. I can't say that the perfume has been simply watered down, it would not be fair. I would say that the perfumer has found a new level to balance what he once blended so well. It is still very hypnotic and extremely alluring, but now I can actually wear it.

Great review and video Elena! I need to go test this as I too cannot wear the original Alien. I am more curious than ever now! Mugler fragrances are becoming a new part of this amazing addiction!

I find this version very nice. A tad similar to edp, but brighter, more solar, and great projection, to my nose, nicer than Extraordinaire...summery, I sprayed myself at the perfume counter, walked around and managed to get two compliments in less than 15 mn!

That bottle with the dull white paint at the bottom does look very dull. But it's a great vibrant and easy to wear version of Alien. It reminds me a lot of the earlier Sunessence editions. Since I was daft enough to swap them away it's great to have a replacement.

Very disappointed to see yet another Alien flanker based heavily around cashmeran. I'd love to see something like this (especially with the solar notes) minus any polycyclic musks.

Much better than the original. This one lessens that "synthetic sting" that the original ALIEN hits you with upon your first blast.

Just got this in at my job and absolutely love it! I find it better than the original (but not quite as good as the Absolute version).

I love them both, Angel and the new Alien Eau Sublime.
The bottle of this Eau Sublime is beautiful and the scent is amazing, wonderful jasmine note on the spicy-woody warm base.
Better than the EDP, in my opinion, because there isn't the strong opening (metallic) note.

This one is less fruity and sweet, more Alien, powdery and clean.

How does it compare to Alien Sunessence?

Another flanker of Alien... Sigh... I have to add yet another to my want list and I haven't even got my hands on Musc Mysterieux yet.

This sounds absolutely wonderful for warmer, muggier days when the original is too overbearing (even for me).

Thank you, Elena for your review - it sounds magical.

I have been wanting to try this ever since I saw it mentioned on the Forum threads. I like regular Alien but it is a beast. I have liked a few of the Alien flankers and Dominique is one of my fave noses. Note to self: Try soon!
