Interesting. Thanks for the link. The bottles were clearly either meant for Pure Malt, or to look like they are Pure Malt. And then the juice is just A*Men. Total WTF. And then sb-net tries to slide out with half back or full price back, and then pulls the bottles off the site. Again, it sounds to me like they hooked up with a dubious supplier and corrected once they discovered it. It's a clear risk of their worldwide market-swapping business model.
Is it possible that those were just proof bottles from early in the design process on Pure Malt? And then somebody got greedy and decided to pawn off a crate of them into the wholesale stream? Either that, or they were dumped to a wholesaler as A*Men, but somebody along the way went by the bottle format instead of the actual label or shipping invoice. That makes the most sense to me. Especially since the juice smells like real A*Men. They're just proofs.
Not a fake, just a mistake. Might actually be worth something to a hardcore collector of Mugler, or somebody who digs unusual and rare bottles.
