  4. Is it possible to open a bottle of A*Men Pure Malt?

    A friend and I went halfsies on one and would like to split it without having to spray it. If we cut open the plastic, is there any way to access the juice?

    Thanks,

    Re: Arabian Nights by Jesus Del Pozo

    I ended up purchasing. I love it. It's a great alternative to Noir de Noir. It has a rich rose-oud one-two combo that gives off a very opulent, exotic, vibe.

    What a let down. I had such high hopes for this guy, but its play-doh/incense aroma is so cloying that I've had a headache for the last 2 hours. Can't wait to trade this decant.
