Reviews of A*Men Pure Havane

Pure Havane is a wonderfully sweet patchouli fragrance in the A*Men series that bears only a slight resemblance to the original powerhouse. Honey is evident in this one throughout the wear cycle; I couldn't stop sniffing my hand even after many hours had passed since applying a test spritz on it! Also, I liken it to a toned-down version of another favorite of mine, Pure Malt.

Will get a bottle soon. :-)

One of my favourite scents.

When I first tried this I thought it was just okay. I think I was still getting used to the A*Men base. I really like it now. Reminds me of wet tobacco leaves and booze. Gives off a warmth as well. It's quite different from most fragrances, past or present. Projection is good and longevity is very good.

Thierry Mugler A*Men Pure Havane is perhaps the best-known of the flankers to the original A*Men, having followed the original by almost two decades, but its fame now seems to exceed its parent's.

It's a very sweet tobacco fragrance, a combination of honey and a cherried (albeit synthetically) tobacco accord, in concert with the standard A*Men dry down of patchouli that is consistent with most of the line (original, Leather, Malt, Wood, Tonka, Coffee) but not some of the lighter-themed offerings.

It's quite sweet but not overwhelmingly sweet in my opinion. Some my criticize it as too sweet, lacking the bite of the tobacco and/or patchouli, but I enjoy the harmony that leans toward the sweet side, and the synthetic cherry sweetness is not problematic, as it is subordinate to sweetness derived from the honey.

Pure Havane is not quite as refined as Pure Malt and thus remains ever so slightly my second favorite Mugler behind Pur Malt, but Pure Havane provides unencumbered sweetness, much like Pure Tonka, whereas Pure Malt's brilliance is in what it holds back.

Performance is quite good, among the best-performing EDTs I've ever worn, along with some of the Scentstory 24 line (especially Gold and Gold Oud), and since often available under $60 for 100ml, Pure Havane is a bargain, like many of its A*Men brethren.

Truly a scent and a deal to be adored, if you like sweet tobacco fragrances, you should try this out.
