When it comes to giving someone a fragrance they love, I tend to try and find something special. Case in point? This stunning coffret featuring Thierry Mugler’s always popular Alien.
Packaged as a book of mysteries, I can’t imagine anyone who wouldn’t be over the moon to receive such a gorgeous parcel.
The packaging is a stunning, weighty, purple box disguised as a book, complete with white elastic bow. It’s perfectly gift wrapped already, meaning one less parcel to wrestle around in wrapping paper.
Inside is where it gets really good – a 30ml refillable bottle of Alien eau de parfum, 100ml bottle of body lotion and a 30ml bottle of shower gel.
I am completely in love with the lavender bottles of body products and the little jewel which is the Eau de Parfum.
I love, love, love the bottle, it just looks so mysterious. The scent is to die for too – Jasmine, White Amber and Cashmeran Wood makes this such a wintery choice. The jasmine is most noticeable when it’s first applied, and it dries down to a sexy amber which is just made for night time.
The back of the bottle is etched – I just adore the attention to detail.
The shower gel is a great way to wear the scent for day.
It’s quite a light formula, which leaves just a trace of amber and wood on your skin for the whole day. It makes a morning shower seem so luxurious.
The body lotion furthers the perfume’s staying power.
I love how it’s precisely the same colour as the packaging, and it feels really hydrating when applied. When I wear this along with the perfume it lasts and last, as well as making my skin feel divine. I can’t imagine anyone who would grab this out from under the tree this Christmas!
The coffret is priced at £ 50.00 and is available from Debenhams and House of Fraser and here for US readers
