Flower of the Future: Alien Flora Futura

***Special thanks to Mugler for sponsoring this post! All opinions are my own.***

C. Joybell C. once said, “you’re never fully dressed without perfume.” A good one, that is. I’ve always resonated with this quote because I believe that the perfume a woman wears speaks volumes about her personality! Today, I wanted to share with you a spring/summer fragrance that I’ve been loving lately. It’s the flower of the future, better known as Mugler’s Alien Flora Futura. It’s a relatively new one that became available in April of this year. Personally, I’m an avid lover of perfumes with floral notes, but I also appreciate ones with just the right amount of zest. Alien Flora Futura is just that and more — and I’m so excited to get into the details!

First, let me begin with the packaging. After all, the packaging is always half the fun, right? Upon opening the box, I was mind-blown, to say the least. Mugler really did a spectacular job designing their bottle! It features distinct architectural shapes, encapsulating the precious “flower of the future.” The striking gold accent and peachy pink hues evoke a sense of a fresh start and optimism that everyone should carry with them every day.

Alien Flora Futura celebrates the birth of a world of light, the miracle of revitalized nature and an arid desert that has become fertile, as a sign of hope for a better tomorrow. – Mugler

As far as the scent goes, the quintessential Alien Flora Futura is the perfect combination of crisp, tangy freshness and unique white florals, balanced out with white amber to reveal the creamy notes of sandalwood. The result is a signature fragrance that is sensual and truly breathtaking. As someone who lives in the desert, the fragrance reminds me of a beautiful desert oasis in Spring time. It smells soooo dreamy & refreshing; there are no words that will do this delight justice. You’ll really just have to experience it for yourself!

Prior to this fragrance, I was using Chanel’s “eau tendre” eau de toilette, which I also adore. The Alien Flora Futura is similar in that the scent is very delicate and soft — nothing overbearing like some other perfumes. It’s just enough to make a lasting impression and keep me smelling fresh for the day. If you’re looking for a new scent that isn’t intense or overbearing, you may just fall in love with this one πŸ˜‰

Have you tried the Alien Flora Futura eau de toilette or any of Mugler’s other fragrances?

    1. Ahh I’m so glad to hear you’re a fan of Mugler’s original fragrance. I’m the opposite – I will have to give that one a try after I go through this one!

  3. Great article! Many of my friends use the scent and I was tempted to try it too – But somehow I am a ChloΓ© Girl – this scent is my signature and I am not really willing to change haha.

    1. Ohhh! That’s amazing to hear that a lot of your friends use this fragrance. They’ve got fine taste! I’m also a fan of ChloΓ© too but like to switch it up every now and then haha

  4. I have always loved how Mugler comes out with such unique packaging. It’s so pretty that to makes me not want to use it. I have to try the Alien Flora Futura fragrance. The notes sound like they’d work beautifully on my skin!

    1. Right?! Their packaging really blows my mind and the amazing fragrance just tops it all off. But I know what you mean about something being in such pretty packaging you never want to use it LOL!! I thought that was just a problem I had hahaha

    1. Yes, presentation is a big factor for sure! It really made a good first impression for me before I got the chance to actually try the fragrance. πŸ™‚

  5. I’m trying to be better at using perfumes because you’re right that a scent is an extension of your outfit – it’s an accessory! That bottle is really pretty and it sounds like it smells amazing!

    1. Haha I got a lot better after moving to the desert – especially in the summer time. I think it really helps to not only keep me smelling fresh, but also complete my outfit!

  6. This brand has such pretty perfumes! I love the bottles too – I found them recently and love the scents!

  7. You’re never fully dressed without perfume! That is so very true. I always make sure to wear perfume before I leave for the day!

    1. Lol! Aww that’s too cute! I can’t imagine having such a luxurious fragrance in high school! I don’t think I was even allowed to wear perfume back in those days haha so I would have been jealous too!

  8. Mugler is a new acquaintance to me, but judging by your review and the mere looks of the bottle, I’d say it’s definitely something I would consider giving my mother or all the other women in my life. πŸ™‚

  11. I must say that the packaging alone is GORGEOUS for the Alien Flora Futura. I bet it must smell so lovely! I’m super particular with my scents so I’m glad to hear this one is delicate and soft πŸ™‚ I definitely will pick it up to try it. Btw you look gorgeous!!! I love this red print on you xx

    1. Haha the packaging definitely caught my eye and I was pleasantly surprised by how much I actually love the scent too because I really thought that maybe it wasn’t much more than just packaging. Usually in life, you can’t have it all but with this perfume you certainly do! Haha I’d love to hear what you think of it if you do give it a try! Thanks darling xo

  12. Even though I love wearing warm, musky scents, I think it’s necessary to switch it up for the summer. A crisp, floral scent would be perfect! I hope I can find this in Tokyo πŸ™‚
