    A*Men Pure Havane by Thierry Mugler

    I am a lady fond of masculine gourmands and Thierry Mugler offers me two phantastic ones to enjoy : Pure Malt + Pure Havane.
    When I bought PH blindly I was afraid at first that it might be too similar to PM and that I would invest my money for the same stuff in two different bottles.
    I can assure you I did not.

    The two fragrances are similar in the sense of sweet-gourmand-extravagant but they differ in their overall notes.
    Whereas PM is pure caramel and dark chocolate on me Pure Havane is honey, honey, honey and a bit of tobacco. To be frank I do not smell much of the tobacco at all. The honey is powerful but very nice. Could not stop sniffing my wrist where I sprayed PH on.

    The strange thing is : I detest the original A*Men, it is harsh, bitter and chemically sweet on me and tarry.

    If you think you might like Pure Havane you should not hesitate too long...otherwise the only supply will be expensive offers at the bay.
