About B*Men

A new "super-hero" in Mugler's men's range. After A*Men comes B*Men. Basenotes was disappointed that A*Men's partner wasn't called D*Men. It would have been a nice 'play' on good and evil -- A(ngel)*Men Vs D*Men (Demon). Oh well!
The scent was inspired by A*Men, and the bottle is exactly the same, but khaki/red instead of silver/blue. A new classic? We'll have to wait and see.

Before the flurry of excellent A*Men flankers that came out in recent years (i.e. Ultrazest, Pure Malt, Pure Tonka, Pure Coffee, etc.) came Thierry Mugler's B*Men. I originally was not too keen on B*Men, but I have revised my estimate of this fragrance from neutral to thumbs up!

B*Men retains the gourmand quality of its older brother; the chocolate-coffee notes, though not mentioned in the fragrance note triangle, are present - though not as strong as the original. The real treat of this scent is the spiciness, resembling red pepper flakes and cinnamon. The mysterious "sequoia" note adds the faint woodiness, with a slight tang provided by the interesting rhubarb.

I give this scent its props for courageously offering an alternative to the wildly popular A*Men. In its time over a decade back, it was the only flanker on the shelf; I was naturally curious about B*Men in that way. Nowadays, there's a dizzying number of A*Men flankers! (I wonder, is A*Men Le Gôut du Parfum / The Taste of Fragrance a scent that attempts to mimic B*Men, with the emphasis on spiciness?)

Didn't like it at first, but now I give a healthy thumbs up for this gem. Can't believe it's discontinued!

This is much better than my initial thoughts after trying it out more than once. Has expected nice chocolate/coffee notes but also has a traditional, clean, refined men's fragrance feel to it. Imagine being in a coffee shop waiting for your order when you catch a whiff of a nice men's fragrance, maybe from a passer-by...its kinda like that. On my skin, it doesn't project like original A*men, which is good, but longevity is good, lasts all day.

B*Men is a very slightly tart and woody rhubarb that's light enough to be worn in the summer, but shines brightest in the fall weather paired with a nice warm sweater. Testing blind I'd never make the connection to A*Men or the other flankers that followed, this seems like something completely different (and much more up my alley).
