Re: Somebody explain this.


in france the book "le parfum" by Suskind, is a classic one! a beautiful story.
the movie is very epidermic, you can see the smells, you see the skin very close, the pores, the shivers.
the man wants to make the ultimate perfume, with women [sign in to see URL] perfume that drive people mad! very special movie! full of sensation...

for thierry muggler: some women have bad taste too, and maybe some people find this bottle nice when we find it ugly...

Re: Somebody explain this.


Thank you very much for finding that video. It definitely answers my question. This perfume was marketed to women who fancy themselves as space monsters. It has a sort of Martian Chronicles flavor to it, no?

I don’t see it so much as being in bad taste, as being out of character. The name and bottle both appeal to me, but I have a yen for space monsters. I’ve never met a woman who secretly wanted to be one.

Incidentally, here is what has become of our fashion designer. Don’t click on this unless you are of legal age and have a strong stomach.

Re: Somebody explain this.


I was so intrigued by this that I stopped by Nordstrom and picked up a bottle. The woman who helped me kept trying to gift-wrap it, but I finally convinced her it wasn’t necessary. She also gave me a bunch of samples. I suppose I can give them to my mother and sister.

So far, the very fashionable women in my family think it is a science fiction toy I bought on eBay. Of note: my room smells much better now.

Re: Somebody explain this.


It cost $100 (currently €70). The reason I got the big bottle was for visual purposes. I intended it primarily as a prop for my own amusement, so I wanted it to look impressive.

As for the smell: it smells like…well…perfume. Hey, I like the smell of talcum powder, gasoline, and new plastic. I may not be the best one to ask about that.

Maybe, if I ever get tired of looking at it, I will give it to someone for Christmas. Unfortunately, none of the women I know who would wear it would also appreciate the irony of a fine women’s perfume that looks like a Cylon centurion and bears the title of a Ridley Scott horror film.

Re: Somebody explain this.


as i said i don't care (and i think i am not alone) of the shape of the bottle, some bottles are beautiful and i can't bear the smell. If the smell of this perfume is good too me, i suppose i can buy [sign in to see URL] bottle is near my bed, nobody see it except me and my husband. and rare are people that reconized the smell of specific perfume on people. i used to reconized some familiar one, like the perfume of my mother (thierry mugler too, but not Alien, her perfume is "angel").
i think it will be a great gift for a women, because it's a very expensive one.
 tomorow i'll go to the shop to smell it.
Thierry Mugler is a big designer, a grand couturier.
i don't think that women that wear this perfume are science fiction [sign in to see URL] by "Alien" you better understand "expectonnal" "more than human", "from an other planete", a "different women". But i don't really think that women are analysing this like that. It's just "i buy this perfume because it's a thierry mugler one, and it's nice to have it because he's a great fashion designer, and i 'll say to my friend: i have the last Thierry Mugler perfume"
i think it's more like that
or
as i say: i am looking for a particular smell and i don't care of the bottle.

 i was reaching something with orange smell or fruits, and i choiced my perfume because of that, and not because of the shape of heart of the bottle or because of the name "lacroix".
i am like you i love particular smells, like orange, like the smell of the books, but not all the books. i love the smell of the littles pieces of papier that my grand-mother put in the cake box with the vanilla, and the pieces of paper smells like the old books+vanilla...
i like the smell of the ground under the sun after the rain
i lovethe smell of the apple...
i am sad because i don't find simple perfume like: only the smell of the orange, there is always something else that gives me headache, or they don't last during the day, only one hour or two.

you are the first man i meet who buy a perfume because he like the bottle.
i like that.
i hope you'll find the girl form an other planet who match with the bottle. emoticon

Re: Somebody explain this.


I could be overanalyzing the name and bottle, but some identification with the alien girl in the commercial must be intended. She is a space monster—albeit a pretty one!

I could only love a space monster or something far stranger. Of that I am certain.

PM your address and I will send the samples and the watch box.

Re: Somebody explain this.


They’re just little samples in small tubes. As for my mother and sister: they have all sorts of perfume, perfume samples, etc. I haven’t told them about the samples, and they don’t need them.

I have an unclaimed watch box, and you ought to have it.
