Reviews of Ice*Men

Ice Men is a really decent, almost nice sort of “fresh” and heavily synthetic patchouli with a dusty amber-musk base, quite similar to the ultra-cheap Patchouly Leaves by Monotheme – just with a bit more weight and richness (but less discreet class and brightness). It is a fun take on patchouli, which smells basically emptied from any “dark” earthiness and sweetness, while its leafy-dusty side gets enhanced in a peculiar sort of “cold-metallic” blend. Both musk and a sort of greenish “bamboo” note similar to the one in O pour Homme by Lancome help in rounding this breezy, half-exotic half-industrial ambiance. It may seem something “creative” but for me isn’t anything special, as if you view it from another point of view it smells basically just like a really cheap and plastic patchouli with some musky greenness underneath. Loud and extremely linear as many other Mugler’s fragrances. Still I wouldn’t say it is a bad scent, if you’re into patchouli and you want to smell some different take on it, here you go.

Salutation.

Every ELEGANT man can enjoying of THIERRY MUGLER colognes and ICE MEN?obviously MASCULINE.this one is Different and pleasant for me.

Strong opining with patchouli and alcohol,reminiscent of lime for me.when mixed with my skin chemistry,it is really CLEAN and COLD.in my opinion it is different from most of the other cold fragrances.

Cool bottle.perfect for hot days and suitable for a businessman.LONGEVITY?was average on my skin.Anyway if you are a free spirit,independent man You need ICE MEN.

Genre: Woods

Holy Patchouli, Batman! Sweaty, head shop patchouli is not what I expected from a blue liquid with “Ice” on the label, but that’s exactly what you get when you spray on Mugler’s Ice*Men. The patchouli comes on strong and says that way, as it is prone to do. The treatment here emphasizes the crisp, minty-herbaceous aspect of patchouli leaves, but the patchouli used is also very sharp and acidic, and the overall result seems crude to my nose.

As the hours take their toll on the patchouli there emerges a cool, fresh, camphoraceous woody accord. This is more in line with expectations set by Ice*Men’s name and packaging, but hardly noteworthy in and of itself. The patchouli and woods run the rest of their course side by side, without taking any interesting turns. Kudos, I suppose, to Mugler for not releasing another stereotypical aquatic “sport scent,” but straightforward patchouli is a crowded field, and Ice*Men would have to do more to hold my attention.

Interesting fragrance!
The opening is really strange. fresh with cooling vibe. so named correctly.
The cooling vibe isn't like something you get from fresh mint or pepper mint for example.
Smell like a cold and wet basement!!
Yeah, that's the patchouli note which give us this feeling.
I can smell the original vibe in the background too, but it's not warm or too sweet at all. but definitely you can feel the original in this fragrance.
In the mid the patchouli note settle down just a bit and you can smell huge dose of nutmeg and some woodsy notes. specially nutmeg. it's really strong and give you a peppery and sharp smell.
Good projection and longevity with this fragrance.
I like it.
Very different and unique fresh fragrance for spring and summer.

So so summer fragrance.

I really like the opening of Ice Men. While some don't care for the menthol type opening I find it refreshing and a nice change from the all too familiar citrus opening. During the later half of the opening is when the iced coffee accord comes in and it really does smell like an iced coffee. What comes next is what really ruined this fragrance which is the patchouli. After the other notes subside that's really all your left with is this weak watery patchouli that's out of place. I realize that this is an A*Men Flanker, but this would have been much better if they would have toned down the patchouli and backed it up with some woods or a nice white musk. That brings me to the improved version of Ice Men which is Pure Shot. It's everything Ice Men should have been, but like Ice Men it doesn't project or last as well as it should. Poorly would be a better way to describe it. Overall, I still like Ice Men enough to wear it occasionally, but it's not something that stands out. Average at best.

Pros: Cheap, different.
Cons: Longevity and projection.
