    I remember when I hated A*Men, but now I LOVE it, overtime it grew on me and I fell in love, I saw why everyone loved it so much, my best suggestion would be to get a Mini and try and wear it time to time, A*Men has a harsh top notes, but about 1 hour later into the scent thats when it gets good the chocolate calms down and you can detect vanilla and moss to my nose anyway.

    As all of you may know, I'm one of the biggest fans of Angel Men here.

    Is it sweet? Yes, but it's not as sweet as Givenchy Pi (which is one of my most-hated fragrances).

    Is it powerful? Yes...maybe a bit too powerful.

    Is it chocolatey? YES!!! And that's one of the reasons I love it! It's just a great, well-crafted, and dare I say "fun" scent.

    However, it is a "love it or hate it" type of men's scent, and I also understand why just as many people hate it as the amoutn of people who love it.

    I like it. In fact, as a hardcore fan of oriental scents, I like all sweet frags. If you think A*men is too sweet then I guess you might not like other scents such as Hanae Mori EDT, Pi, Eau Noire, Rochas Man, Joop PH, Animale Animale, Cristobal, New Haarlem, Yohji Homme, Very Irresistable, Dior Homme, etc.

    A*men is certainly different, but does it suck? I personally don't think so. It may be the tar and patchouli notes that disgust you. In that case, if you're looking for a milder and less bitter chocolate scent, then I recommend you try Rochas Man. It's also sweet but easier to wear IMO.

    JP1, neither will I join you with the "A*Men Haters Gang*: I love it. I can easily see it is not for everyone, but like I said, I find it simply irresistible.
    I also appreciate it`s long lasting power.
    And btw, if you ask me there are many sweeter frags available, even in your own wardrobe!

    I always smelled A*men on paper and hated it. When I actually got a free sample from TM, I fell in love. It's distinct sweetness gives me a boost of confidence that I smell delicious. If you prefer clean or spicy colognes, it's not for you. However among my favorite colognes are Pi and Black Code. So A*Men was right up my alley.

    "it is sickly" - I can see why some people could form that opinion after wearing it a while,
    "too sweet" - there would be many who would agree with you
    "just stinks of gone off chocolate" - depends where in the world you live and what you define as good chocolate. If, for example, you think Hershey Bars are good chocolate, you may not like A*men, as the two are not alike. In my neck of the woods A*men does not smell like chocolate gone off.

    Thierry Mugler is an innovative designer who does not jump on the bandwagon. For this reason, his fragrances are the "extreme" fragrances: one either loves them (and loves them with a passion) or hates them (and hates them with a vengence). It is understandable that A*Men can be hated by a population that keeps Acqua di Gio (a light, citrusy, synthetic, unoffensive, mediocre fragrance) the number one selling fragrance in the world...incidentally and ironically, A*Men and Acqua di Gio were released the same year...
    I work for Thierry Mugler Parfums and I must say that when I first started many years ago as a certified sales specialist, A*Men had to be sold to customers by having them test it on the skin (or my skin)...on the test blotter, A*Men (and now B*Men, for that matter) are two totally different fragrances...try it sometime...go to your Saks or Macy's or Nordstrom and sample A*Men (or B*Men, especially) on a blotter card and also spray it on your skin...walk away and in a few hours smell the card and then smell your skin and you will see that the dry-down on the skin is sexy and subtle yet soft and lasting. When you consider the woody oriental genre, you can see the many imitators of A*Men. It IS a daring and original fragrance and thus the reason so many people claim to "hate" it. An interesting little tid-bit, when Angel and A*Men were launched, each were said to have magical and mystical notes that were loved by "good" people and hated by "bad" people. I'm not passing judgement but it is an interesting thought...

    Most fragrance smell different on skin than on paper, I just use the testing strips to get an idea of the scent. Also whats this BS about magical notes that only "good" people like? So if we don't like A*Men that makes us bad people? I do like A*Men but I can't wear it because even one spray is too potent and get cloying on me. Maybe I should try the walk through method. What is it that makes this stuff so strong?

    Amen does have it's followers and it's detractors. I'm on the love it side. To me it's the best mass marketed scent made. I've also said this many times that it is the most fickle fragrance on the market. If it works on your skin it's a mindblower. If it doesn't it's worthy of UN sanctions. It has to be worn and I wholeheartedly understand why a great deal of people don't like it. On me though, it's fabulous. It has to be worn and is VERY dependent upon one's chemistry. It is truly horrid if it doesn't work on your skin. A sign of any great scent though is one that has as many people who are passionate about it on both sides of the fence. It's too bad that the major houses today don't have the courage to make a scent like this.

    OK, Folks!! Here goes me.....blazin' a new trail!!

    I'm not gonna say "I hate it," because I don't. I haven't worn it enough to say "I love it" because of my limited time with it. How-ever....I will say...."I like this one quite a bit." It seems to work fine on me....not overly sweet and no TAR note. And I remember liking B-Men, too. And, if like myself, A-Men gets the sweetness going with the woody-ness lurking in the shadows (which is fine by me), but you'd MUCH rather have sweet.......go for the original Angel ladies' scent. That one smells like dessert!!

    And, hey man!! Dessert ain't BAD at all!

    Hate is a pretty strong word, but I'm no fan of A*Men. It's that strong coffee note that ruins it for me- makes it go bitter. IMHO I don't think patchouli and coffee go together very well.

    No offense but Thierry Mugler is the same guy who did Cologne and I'd hardly call that innovative. Back to subject, if I recall, the women's Angel was inspired by a pastry shop that Thierry used walk by as a child. I'm not sure if this was the inspiration for the men's but that's all I can think of is a bad synthetic version of pastry and chocolate. This is one headache inducing fragrance for me.

    Its funny...new years eve I kept smelling my fingers and thinking, "Damn, I something smells like A*Men". It was the O'Fallon Cherry Chocolate Ale I was drinking. Seriously, If you've ever wanted to combine A*men and beer, this is the stuff! (small Missouri brewery)

    Anyway, the first time I ever sampled A*men, I sprayed some on my hand, and went to my folks house. The first thing my brother said was, "Damn that cologne SUCKS!"

    But then I learned how to wear it. For me, A*men works only when worn on an area of skin that is covered by clothing (chest, stomach etc.) When worn on neck or wrists, it is too strong and the tar notes dominate. BAD. However, when worn under clothing, the balance is perfect and I get a really nice trail of mint and patchouli to go with the chocolate. With A*men, its really in where you wear it. Also, I only use half a spray (which is very hard to achieve). Once I got the hang of proper application of A*men, I realized that it had a very magnetic effect on the opposite sex.

    The beauty of A*men is the BALANCE of all the crazy notes that ricochet in all different directions.

    What's next for Mugler?

    I'd like to see a SMOKY INCENSE kind of scent. Bet you guys would LOVE that! Hey Thierry, if you're reading....PLEASE hear my plea and contact me as I'd love to help you create "HALO" by Thierry Mugler- the smoky, meditative, new men's fragrance.

    What do you think?

    Hmmmmmmmmmmmm. I disagree one wy or the other with just about everybody so far .

    I read the reviews in BN's Directory(what a wonderful asset!) and decided to buy a bottle 'blind' even though there were many negative reviews along with the good ones and am I ever GLAD I did! It has become my absolute favorite colder weather juice. The top notes do 'stink' IMO but the base notes are so delicious :-* so the dry down is so worth waiting for. I loved it so much that I ordered a second(and bigger) bottle 3 or 4 days after getting the first. Btw, their 'rubber'-clad bottle sucks 'ease-of-use wise whereas, the larger, metal-clad bottle works just fine.

    "Too potent/strong"............Nah, not for me. I spray on 4 or 5 sprays of it in the AM(have it on right now) after a shower and then I reaply it after I get home from work and again before bedtime. I just cannot get enough of or too much of this scent.

    TM's "Cologne" is so pedestrian and 'plain' compared to A*men that it's hard for me to believe that they are from the same house :-?

    I love A*men! and wish that my DH would wear it. He can't stand the stuff ... so I have to wear it, layered stategically with my Angel.

    I have always said that one does not choose Angel, rather Angel chooses you. I think that A*men is a little like that too. On the chosen ones, A*men is wonderful; however it can be more than a little unpleasant on the non-selected.

    In response to Mugler being "pedestrian", Thierry Mugler created Mugler cologne because of his love for soapy fragrances ( one can even detect a soapy quality to A*Men if one sniffs hard enough...) He created Mugler also because of that bizzare love affair of the world with AdG...think about it, if you were a designer, wouldn't you want to create something that would be popular? A*Men is certainly for a certain crowd but Mugler is light and unoffensive enough to really be a cornerstone of someone's wardrobe...

    A*men has so many notes playing on each other and the combination is unorthodox compared to other scents.

    Adding lavender to vanilla usually results in nice sillage and further projection of the vanilla. Caron PUH and Le Male are good examples of this. But I find that the lavender in A*men isn't a clean lavender note found in floral based scents such as Patou Prive. It's more dirty and "buttery".

    The heavy dose of patchouli in the base also help lift the scent while the woods keep it all tied together so it lasts for days. The tendency of that patchouli is really dependent on one's body chemistry. On some people it dominates which is why they find that it goes rancid. On me, it is rather subdued and actually seems to dissipate during the drydown. This one note is why A*men needs skin to properly develop. If you want to know what I mean, try spraying it only on your shirt and not your skin. You won't get a wonderful sweet drydown. Instead you'll get an earthy, bitter, patchouli note that is reminiscent of body odor.

    The addition of tar with the coffee note gives it that ruggedness and initial harshness that many recognize as the bitterness of the scent. It does smell "off" but only for the first few minutes. For me, the tar vanishes rather quickly and is no longer detectable after about 15 minutes. I don't mind it though because I find it pretty interesting.

    The one note that I think makes A*men different from other gourmands is the generous amount of mint that's in it. For me it isn't subtle and I can definitely tell it's there. It keeps the scent crisp and sharp, while other scents such as Rochas Man and Animale Animale have the tendency to turn flat and syrupy during the drydown.

    A*men is really tempermental and it depends on how you apply it. If you're light on the trigger finger, it shouldn't turn into a cloying mess. If you overapply, it can be hideous. I know from experience because on New Year's Eve, I literally douched myself in it (euphoria + being drunk = foolishness). Needless to say, I wouldn't recommend doing that.

    A*men was firmly in my holiday triangle, scent-wise, for I consider it a wonderful, originative, iconoclastic fragrance. However, I agree entirely with Indie Guy's explanation of how he uses it, for this is my convention when wearing Angel for Men, too. I once tried all the accompanying line of bath and skin care products (shower mousse, shampoo, facial lotion, and hair gel) with the EDT and it resulted in the most shocking, crude, synthetic, repulsive-smelling mess I've ever applied to myself! These "accessory" products are terrible, among the worst I've ever used. However, the EDT itself is simply amazing.

    *Also, I only use half a spray (which is very hard to achieve).
    Gladly, this isn't a problem for me. I use four sprays; keep in mind, the sprays in my metal-covered bottle are sort of weak and not very forceful or full. I put one to my upper chest, another to the back of my shoulders, and one each to the inside of my elbows (if I'm wearing a long-sleeve shirt), and after the initial hour the effect is mesmerizing.

    A*men chose me! This is my story...

    My SOTD for Christmas was A*men - I chose it days before. I haven't worn it for a long time, mostly sticking to conservative scents like Vetiver and Coriolan but I wanted a real attention getter. I wasn't disappointed.

    After getting together with family I proceded to head out and go to my friends' house first. He told be to come on over to the neighbours' house to say Merry Christmas and have a drink. His neighbour had his ex-wife and daughter over. The ex just sent me an email asking if I were attached and told me I smell great.

    Afterwards I went to a party with a few friends. One of my friends brought over his girlfriend and her cousin. She is 23, I'm 41. The cousin seemed drawn to me all night and we connected. I'm not bragging. It HAS to be the A*men!

    I'm sold. *A*men is pure magic. *God bless Thierry Mugler!
    Nice! the mother, the ex, the daughter, the cousin - Go 'n get 'em tiger!! - rrrrRRRaaawwwww

    A*Men was a scent that took me a while to get, just like other fans here. At first it's shock, you never really expect chocolate from a fragrance, let alone a cologne! Especially if you aren't really knowledgable with the world of fragrances.

    But I slowly came back to it afterwards. It's like a scary movie, you don't want to watch, but you feel compelled to. I finally *got* it, as they say, after a few other tries.

    So don't give up on it yet. A*Men is different and most people aren't ready for that. But once they are, they'll never go back.

    ;D

    Try spraying it on the hair on the back of your head and then later rubbing it lightly ;D!

    Imagine waking up with a headache beside a naked, sweaty, chocolate eating fat chick who's sleeping on your arm and has you trapped as she drools saliva on your A*Men wrist in her sleep.
    This is the power of A*Men.

    Not my favourite fragrance.

    What - are you saying A*men gave you a headache? And that a good samaritan was trying to cleanse the toxin from your skin?

    When A*Men is involved there is no reprieve for its victims...
    Both wearers and good samaritans will suffer...
    I still have the missing patches of body hair (and one missing arm as discussed) where I tried to scrape the evil off - pretty noticable on this monkey.

    I think too many people use too many sprays.

    correction: I KNOW most people tend to overstpray it.

    but this is mainly because half of us have blown out our noses from sniffing too much :P
