@Ouch110's Review of Alien The Taste of Fragrance & subsequent sample purchase!

Alien The Taste Of Fragrance is a perfume that I've had my eye on for a while but have never really done anything about. I guess I was hoping that it would be released in Australia & I'd be able to try it out instore. I asked around at different department stores & got multiple blank stares (Myer & David Jones I'm looking at you!).

I eventually forgot about this fragrance whilst waiting for something that's never going to happen.

Fast forward to March 2013. I found & subscribed to Ouch110's YouTube Channel a few days ago & am really loving his fragrance review vlogs. Today I noticed his Alien TTOF review & clicked immediately.

He describes his fragrance very well - the salty  nature of TTOF really intrigues me. So I let my mouse "do the walking" & headed over to eBay. I was THIS close to buying a bottle, but I really need to slow down on my full bottle purchases. The samples seemed to be a similar price per ml so I talked myself out of the full bottle & into the sample instead.

Feeling very proud of myself. Gold star for meeee!

Oh, but I did manage to accidently buy some Angel The Taste Of Fragrance samples as well. :D Well, you really need to make the postage cost worth it. Know what I  mean?

Enjoy the fantastic review! Thanks for the inspiration @ouch110!

PS: Don't you hate having to wait to pay a seller on eBay because they need to send you a new
invoice to combine shipping. I'd rather just pay & get it over & done with.


  1. I missed trying these out too. Can't wait to hear your thoughts!
    I am seeing the leather versions of Alien, Angel and Womanity (beautiful bottles) and Alien Absolue which smells like boozy version of Alien in some shops. I really want to get Alien Absolue, maybe for in May for my birthday. Let's see :)
    I lurk on Fragrantica and do enjoy Ouch's posts on there.

  2. I can't wait to try them :) Everytime I've gone to DJ's or Myer in the City but they have never heard of TTOF. I just hope I don't fall in love because if I do, the chances of buying will diminish dramatically.

    The leather versions do have beautiful bottles don't they? Haven't tried them though.

    Alien Absolue is beautiful! Now is a perfect time to start on the hints Su, and you'll be opening a little Alien surprise in May. :)
