Mugler · Alien, Alien Man & Alien Man Fusion

With Christmas just one month away (what???), it felt appropriate to review a few fragrances that I’ve had hanging about but never got around to … until now.

It’s no secret that I’m all about luxury beauty and as my experience with this brand has always been quite positive, I had high hopes for this selection. Good to know that my instincts are still bang-on.
