    A*Men: Les Parfums de Cuir / Pure Leather by Thierry Mugler

    Agh! im having a hard time with this, overall i do not like it but I have a few mini testers and still find myself wearing it?? I've previously commented on how personally i think the leather blast at the beginning comes across synthetic and really quite harsh till the point where it doesnt smell like soft leather but fake plastic.
    I can also totally understand the harsh reviews on sites where people say it smells nothing like leather because in a way, it doesnt.

    I started off thinking it was basically A*men with a leather note simple as that, but i noticed a guy wearing it on the bus and as it was filling the space i kept thinking it smells more like pure malt! Now i know A*men a lot better i could tell its not exactly the same and it does have a touch more of that sweet fruity note rather than tar and salty caramel.

    But i still do not hate it, i wouldnt call it trash and i wouldnt run around bitching about it.
    I just think its ok, certainly nothing to go nuts over or call "the ultimate leather fragrance!!"
