Just the other day I was talking to someone about how perfumes wear themselves differently on people depending on one’s natural skin fragrance, chemicals in their body reacting differently to the perfume, and other factors. It’s no news flash this information. The reason I mention this is because ‘Midnight Illusions’ by Lolita Lempicka smelled drastically (and I mean I thought they were two different fragrances) on my mom and I.

Midnight Illusions has a predominantly woody smell, that of Oud Wood and Liquorice wood. The fragrance is dark and intense. This one is for people who can carry off strong scents easily.

Now Alien Essence Absolue by Thierry Mugler is something that I feel I can carry off. It is light, floral and has a tinge of vanilla. It has got notes of Jasmine, white amber and vanilla.

Both fragrances are available at leading beauty stores in Dubai.
