got my 1z01 and 1v01 bottles today. Not original formulation but ill compare these to my April bottles.
Thanks! ordered 2 bottles with Fatwallet for 7% cash back
I have the April 2011 bottles and I dont know how far it projects but people do smell it
good project in the heat, smelled from feets away
last time I went in Sephora which was a while ago, the DH testers were all silver tubes
When did it come out at Sephoras?
so if I already have April 2011 DHI, is there a point in smelling out the new DH?
Is this true? If so I might go test out the current formulation of DH and compare it to my April 2011 DHIs
So the drydown is Amen with more vanilla and the opening is like Pure malts opening. Am i correct
D&G is one of the best smelling scents IMO. DHI is unique and lasts forever. I have the April 2011 batch
Is the drydown better than Pure Malt's drydown?
comes out to $78.20 before 1% cash back on BE after my 15% birthday coupon. Might pull trigger soon..
first ever spray out the bottle had the rubber smell for me but never since.
360 Red is the best cheapie next to nautica voyage IMO
Amen Taste of Fragrance Tester BNIB - $57 shipped
pure malt BNIB - 90 shipped
Midnight in Paris EDP Brand new 4.2 - $54 shipped
Still available if listed
i always hated the opening but liked it as time went on
Buy pure malt now while its still here. Amen will always be available later on
A Looooot better longevity and projection for sure
good news - i did not get any alcohol smell upon initial spray my second time testing the new bottle. It must only be the first time using a fresh bottle to get that alcohol smell
allure homme sport for summer
la nuit de lhomme, le male, or play intense for winter
only used my new bottle once so i will have to find out whether the alcohol is just the first ever time using the bottle
havent gotten to test both of them thoroughly because it is summer but the scent is similar except the new bottles smell like alcohol for the first few seconds
i remember pure malt used to last forever on me in the winter. In the summer, both the old release and new release isnt as long lasting
will test longevity tomorrow side by side but so far the 2012 bottle smells like alcohol upon initial spray while the old bottle smells smooth right from the first spray
DHS smells horrible to me. Almost like straight ginger. Blanche I like a lot
Pure malt last forever on me in the winter but in the summer Im very active and sweat a lot so it vanishes a lot quicker
would also like to know
never got gourmand except one time when i woke up in the middle of the night smelling vanilla. Mostly, I just get the floral and sharp citrus that I do not care for
dont really like the top notes but it gets better
I didnt open either one of my 3 new bottles because i still have a 90%. Im just assuming they're same formulation and perfect condition since they are BNIB.
Im mad if thats true. anyone else find longevity issues with the new ones?
Its only been 3 years but you should give it another try some time and see if it really is different
Whatttt ? Reformulation?
got my 3 bottles just now. I remember hearing complaints about muglers service but I can say Im satisfied with my purchase
never cared to try this one because according to reviews on youtube, its not as good as the rest
ebay auctions end for around $50 to $60. just be extra careful bout fakes
price with tax came out to be $96 per bottle -___-
the top notes are reckless.
my order went through without breaking a sweat this morning. It probably wont sell out quick though since pure havane is still there
bought 3 bottles of pure malt today at 10:12 AM eastern time and received shipping confirmation at 10:40 PM
just buy a bottle off the Mugler's website when they release it and if you dont like it, ppl will buy it off you
boss bottle is a nice pleasant scent
april 2011 and before might be what youre looking for
sweet black tea vs orange cream pop. your choice
i tend to hold my breathe in close contact with old people. Its a stereotype or what ever you call it
this but i would change "amazing" to pretty good.
anyone else find it similar to issey miyake?
haha this thread was worth the read, well the last few pages
haha its quite amusing
why would thierry mugler sell fake colognes? Thats like Nike selling fake shoes
nautica voyage or love n luck
I always wear nautica voyage at the gym
all three are good, likable scents.
perry ellis 360 red
love and luck
Am i the only one to notice the increase price tag?
lolita lempicka has the best drydown and longevity of them all. Although the opening is quite strange
i just sold this one away because it was just a more pleasant issey miyake for me with less performance.
le male. Thought im not sure about the recent reformulation talk
Both good choices. New haarlem is sweeter. Reflection man is more versatile.
+1 on le male, recently appreciating it more
le male smells much better when you're actually wearing it than when you sniff it up close
The extreme has more cocoa and last forever compared to the original. Back on topic, LIDGE and Play Intense are only similar in vibe of being powdery. Play intense is a thicker smell while LIDGE is...
not good enough to keep. i have one in my sale thread
Agree, its a great scent but very weak. Btw you have hanae mori as your top #1. Do you have the edt or edp?
this version is pretty close to DHI but not as gourmandy at the end. Its more balance. good proj and longevity too
So I tried a silver collar and black stem tester at sephora. which months was this produced?
pure malt is more casual, versatile. both are great
i sold 1270 because it smelled like strong alcohol in the top then fades into almost nothing.
^^ I agree. It smells nice but not special enough for the money
Bought from AZsmells. I can tell its legit from looks and the scent but it sprays weak and the juice has turned almost red-orange
my 2011 DHI cap fits fine. But my 2005 DH cap doesnt even seem likes it was made to fit the bottle -___-
Also the cap doesnt fit on completely and there is no serial code on the bottom but there is on the box. Everything else looks legit though, the letters, etc.
The sprayer doesn't soak you like the diors, creeds, chanels, etc. Instead its weak like a bond 9. the scent itself smells like DH though. Just weaker
-___- my 2005 sprayer takes like 5 sprays to get a regular dior spray. Very weak
I got my vintage DH from 2005 production date today and the sprayer is crap compared to the current dior sprayers. Is this how the sprayers are for the old Diors?
i received my vintage dior homme today and felt the same way when i smell it up close but everything smells normal from a distance
24 gold is insanely smooth like new haarlem. one million was pitiful after top notes
I agree. Its heavy and sweet but i dont see anything fem about it
I agree. Its heavy and sweet but i dont see anything fem about it
I felt the same way about Aventus. When I first smelled it, I thought it was just like other nice appealing designers like L'homme, Allure, Fierce, etc
wait for a used one on swap sell threads here and youtube
Everyone knows about it at this point. Same with MR, LIDGE, DHI. Hype moves on the next big things after some time.
Lolita Lempicka Au Masculin
new haarlem is one of the few niche that i would own
midnight in paris is nice but not something i would want to wear. Rochas is just too synthetic and cloying for me so code
only think new haarlem is worth a bottle
did not like it on skin but on paper it was nice in the drydown
its a nice scent that lasts but doesnt project just like D&G the one. Well at least in this 50 degree weather. Will look cop if it does better in the heat
that synthetic sweetness was always cloying for me for the first two hours before i cant smell it anymore
rochas was always cloying to my nose while code was tolerable and actually pretty nice but nothing outstanding
Both are amazing
LIDGE is more versatile IMO
