I blind bought PM from a basenote member who ordered it direct from Mugler. I was interested in PM from owning Pure Havane. I find that PH and PM are very much alike. I do find Pure Havane to be a powerhouse compared to Pure Malt. I know others will dissagree, but I've got to be honest with my impression. I feel PM to be a lighter version than PH, which contradicts what others have said on a few threads; but is in agreement with some others. I feel their top notes are very very simular except that touch of tobacco in PH, and it's towards the latter part of the middle that PH and PM become even more alike with PH just being stronger. I find as the OP that it's longevity is not up to par. However, I really do enjoy PM. The one thing it reveals to me that PH does not is an ever slight floral, or is it amber? I dont know, so go ahead and call me crazy, but I pick up a pretty little touch of something in the booziness which I enjoy; it just strikes me as floral. However, to me Pure Havane should have got the hype over PM due to the attributes of having more depth, stamina, projection and pressence througout a long wear, along with delivering such an amazing scent throughout the full wear, easily 10 hours for me. I guess if I owned PM first, I would have picked up PH. But if I had smelled PM, I would have passed since already owning PH. Reguardless, I'm glad to have both.
