    Re: Pure Malt vs. New Haarlem

    Another for Pure Malt. New Haarlem is a decent scent for winter, but I can't wear it more than once or twice a month without getting sick of it.

    Creed Himalaya actually does well is cooler weather imo. I suppose it also depends on how cold it gets where you are, but in the 40's (f) and up it does quite well and is a fresh scent.
