Salute to the cologne that made me get my feet wet. My very first real buy from something other than bath and body. This fragrance has a scent that almost makes you want to drink the liquid. Very much a gourmand and definitely should be in your collection. Received many a compliment from the ladies and can also believe it or not can be worn through out the year. During summer put this on gently because it will come roaring out to everyone around you.
I absolutely love this juice. As it's been said, it's basically A*men without the tar. It's delicious, rich, and complex. It's a staple in my work rotation.
spray with no bias, it just nicely done like an A*MEN but not at all . AA is not too sweet.
The 1st gourmand for men
not much to add..
I have 2 bottles..
I love Mugler and have all their gourmands..
the price is outrageous!!
Pros: great and not as sweet as modern gourmands
Cons: the lightning bolt in the middle of the bottle"
The fact is, this is VERY similar to A*Men.
I had this for a while and really loved it, and I recently got a sample of A*Men. Sprayed it on, and thought: This smells more like AA than I thought, and for 3x the price.
Some people may say AA smells dated or cheap or whatever, but honestly, I think for most people, if the two were put side by side, and people did not have a preconceived notion of the price difference, no one will point to one and say "oh yea, that smells cheaper than the other", and honestly, I don't think most people will even think A*Men smells better.
Bottom line is, they smell very similar, AA doesn't have that disgusting tar note at the top that made me gag a little with A*Men. A*Men dries down beautifully, as does AA. They are slightly different, but I don't think one is "better" than the other. The difference between the two is purely personal preferences and not difference in quality, IMO. If you can try both, try them with an open mind. If you can't try both and is price conscience, then just get AA because you and most other people can't tell the difference anyways.
