Reviews of A*Men Pure Tonka

Not for me. Overly sweet tonka/vanilla. Completely artificial.

The label "Pure" with TM does not necessarily guarantee purity, and his holds true with this composition. Whilst the tonka is present pretty much right from the start, there is a herbal undertone present throughout the initial phase.

The tonka develops over time by becoming increasingly more toasted and less sweet - and whilst rich and intensive in the typical TM-A*Men-style, it manages to be never overly sickly sweet or intrusive. With time I get hints of cocoa too. The base adds a soft patchouli that provides some counterbalance to the heaviness of the core components.

I get strong sillage, truly excellent projection and gigantic longevity of fifteen hours in my skin.

This wintery scent lacks the creative brilliance of Pure Havane, but otherwise it constitutes a well-crafted execution of its concept as an A*Men flanker. 3.25/5. A*Men to that.

It's funny because I truly can't stand tonka, but I love this fragrance.

I feel tonka is extremely overdone and played out. Yet here it is amazing! Another hit from the A*Men flankers. This smells nothing like the original A*Men, but it still has the high quality that the rest of the line has, so I think it's still fitting. It basically smells like New Haarlem. Has exceptional longevity and performance.

Plain and simple, if you like the smell of burnt sugar, you will love this. Very linear, with great performance.

A really sweet rethink in the "Pure" scent series from Thierry Mugler.

The Tonka bean is clearly evident throughout the wear cycle of this fragrance; it's reminiscent of "m" by Perry Ellis, with the presence of a more powdery aura.

Acquired taste flanker that remotely resembles the original A*Men.

Not bad, it's enjoyable to wear and should get some compliments. Projects and has good longevity, lasts all day. The opening is very A*Men but the drydown reminds me more of B*Men with extra vanilla.

Really don't want to neutral ths but I have ahd it with the Mugler flankers. Really, how much of the vanilla/cocoa/caramel can we have? Ove rthe next 5 year there will be Pure (fill in the blank sweet confection).

That said, a surprise in this one is lavender. It plays a role not unlike the Ice Men and Sunessence releases from Mugler. It sits beside the 'tonka' note to continuously emphasize its presence but at the end of the day it's still just a A*Men with a new/different/highlighted notes. No more genius I say...just gimmick now.
