    Is this site reliable? Most of the perfumes are sold at a very cheap price.

    Re: Is Pure Havane worth buying now?

    It would be really worth buying it provided you dont own angel men pure malt. Having said that i would never suggest anyone to spend 150 dollars to buy it :).

    Re: Where to buy pure malt or pure havane?

    Well i got this a long time back from fragrancenet for 75 dollars. When you say ebay sells it for 200 dollars it doesnt make sense spending such a large amount . Instead go for a niche fragrance.
