I’ve always wanted to elevate women to
the top of the world, particularly powerful
women. This power is diverse and specific to
each woman. Alien embodies the power of a
Solar Goddess who radiates, fascinates and
captivates with her benevolence, in a society
questing for spirituality and new values.”
Alien is the very essence of femininity, it’s
femininity incarnate. And femininity is a gift
from heaven, a generosity, an instinctive
THE “GOD OF PERFUME”
Under the dazzling sun of India grow the flowers destined to enhance Alien
with their sparkle. Sambac jasmine of the “Malligai” variety predominates in the Madurai region, the Indian capital of jasmine located in the south of the country. This is where unique, six-petaled flowers that are not yet in full bloom are harvested for luxury perfume, and even more so for the ceremonies, festivals and religious rites that are part of the purest Indian tradition. Each year, 3 tons of sambac jasmine concrete are produced on 6474 hectares in the region of Tamil Nadu.
A SAMBAC STORY

THE GENESIS OF ALIEN,
Alien was crafted from the powerful idea of the sun’s rays conveyed in the
form of a raw block of intense ingredients. This was based on an accord of
natural sambac jasmine, the most powerful jasmine scent, echoed by a duo
of amber and wood. The secret of Alien lies in subtle dosing between the luminous flower – sambac jasmine – and the more animal white amber. An imaginary note tinged with mystery, an extraordinary, almost surrealistic, woody ingredient created a link between the two antagonistic poles: cashmeran.
RADIATE WITH ALIEN EAU THE PARFUM
An amber-woody-floral creation, born of the overdose of two powerful
notes, amber and cashmeran wood, and illuminated by a solar flower:
jasmine sambac. The olfactory expression of mystery and radiance. A precious stone, symbol of femininity and serenity. A precious box imagined like a sacred talisman, charged with intense energy.
The name Alien appears mysteriously engraved in the glass, like an enigma, a message, a seal, a language of ancestral or future inspiration.
An everlasting universal signature.
ALIEN EAU DE TOILETTE
Alien Eau de Toilette lights up the senses with a dazzling citrus freshness. A floral-amber-woody creation. An amethyst crystal, sculpted with an “emerald” cut. Its bottle is inspired by a faceted precious stone, of natural and original beauty, like a rough gem carved from the rock. “It is noticeably different composition from the eau de parfum: a sparkling duo of mandarin and star anise highlights the fresh and joyful facets. A very crystalline, rich and powerful Jasmine Grandiflorum note enriches the heart, and gives the fragrance its distinctive and unique floral dimension.”
ENHACE YOUR SENSUALITY WITH
ALIEN ESSENCE ABSOLUE
EAU THE PARFUM INTENSE
An amber-floral-vanilla creation. The olfactory expression of a bewitching and hypnotic sensuality. A golden topaz, sculpted with a “pear” cut. To contain the most precious interpretation of Alien, the evocation of a golden drop… As if sculpted in a golden topaz, this generous rounded talisman is fashioned to be voluptuous. Absolute preciousness, flaring senses.
SHINE BRIGHTLY WITH
ALIEN EAU EXTRAORDINAIRE
EAU DE TOILETTE
A floral-woody-amber creation, filled with positive energy.”To reveal even more light and add a touch of optimism to Alien Eau Extraordinaire, I worked around citrus notes like bergamot, a material which best evokes the sense of joy and vitality, as well as very feminine notes like tiaré flower and heliotrope. I wanted to create a profusion of sun-kissed notes for a woman with a positive, beaming aura.”
