Alien, Thierry Mugler: A Sambac Story - Official Film. 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.
