A Gift for Mothers Day: Thierry Mugler Alien


This year I am really, properly prepared for Mothers Day! Last year I completely forgot about it, due to focusing on producing some work for a small show and had to make some quick plans to take her out for lunch and I was determined not to leave it until the last minute and I think i've done quite well for the gift.

Bottles photographed above aren't from the gift set itself, these are bottles she's previously emptied.

My mother is obsessed with Thierry Mugler perfume, especially Alien and I have to admit, I do quite like the smell. It's weirdly wonderful, it's the only way I can describe it right now. And the box is beautiful, but i've always thought that of Mugler's imagery, whether that be packaging or their fashion campaigns. I especially love the uniformity in their packaging, from the shape of the box and how the bow mimics that with a different material and how the subtle detail on the bow centre plays in with the design of the bottle and their branding.

The colours I love. I always associate purple and gold to Mugler now, thanks to this packaging. I only wish they continued the colours through the bow.

For those interested, this set features the following for £48.66 from Perfume's Club 
  • 30ml Spray
  • 100ml Body Lotion
  • 30ml Shower Gel
I'm not too sure what else i'm going to get to go with it as she's not really a flowers person. Maybe something from Thornton's, she's definitely into her chocolate. If you're in a store and get the chance to try this perfume, please do. It's a weird scent, but I think it's so, so good.
