Finally, the nights are drawing in, and we have perfect candle weather! I love candles, own hundreds, but this Saturday was the first night we’ve lit a candle in the new flat, and we’ve been here nearly six months now!
And what a one to start candle-season off with. Recently released by Mugler perfumes, this Alien-scented candle is a joy. I love Alien, with its unapologetic oddness (space jasmine, anyone?), but still beautiful in its own right, it’s a perfect scent for room fragrance, and candle. We burned this for several hours on Saturday night, and the flat still smelled amazing the next day. My nose doesn’t detect a lot of household fragrances these days (the fault of my olfactory nerve damage, not the products), but this has a surprising amount of “throw”, so even I could detect, and love it.
So, what does Alien smell like? It’s white flowers, amber, woods and jasmine, with just a tiny, tiny, tiny hint of licorice, in my view. it’s sweet and flowery, but very sophisticated, however, if you don’t like jasmine, you won’t like Alien at all. I like jasmine. A lot. Which is lucky.

I love the way the purple glass glows whilst the candle is burning, and the scent is great (have I mentioned it smells great? I should have, it does), every home should have one. Mugler have also released an Angel-scented candle this autumn, if you know someone who loves Angel or Alien, then here’s your Christmas present sorted.
The Mugler candles cost £39 each, and are available wherever Mugler fragrances are sold. I’ll be getting a backup.
