    Default A*Men Pure Malt

    I was talking to the Thierry Mugler rep at Nordstroms, and she told me that this should be available sometime around mid-May to early June. This is the fragrance with a "whisky note".

    Has anyone else heard anything on this?

    I've heard the name, and that it will be an Eau de Parfum, and that's it. No more info than that... not even the local Clarins Fragrance Group rep knows much. Next time I'm at Macy's, I'll have to coax out as much detail as I can. After all, I'm a sucker for boozy frags (hello, Straight to Heaven...) as it's the closest I can get to booze without getting drunk.

    BTW, the A*Men body products have gotten updated black packaging and the Intense Diffusion System found in the Angel women's products, along with a freshening of the product range. THe new line is now available in France, and should be Stateside soon.

    Is it gonna be a boozy style of scent, or is it just a whiskey note among the coffee, tar, chocolate, etc. ??

    A-men with an Ovaltine note? The name sounds sort of dorky!

    Red face Pure Malt

    Today I wore a three shots of Pure Malt to the gym to check out it's durability and sillage.

    Big Mistake! in this 80 degree weather

    The scent is very rich and all I could get was dark bitter sweet chocolate with Johnnie Walker drizzled over it. It made me very sick and queasy -

    I can not see why Mugler would launch this in the USA during the warmer weather and I find this one to be the same power strength as it's big brother A*Men unlike how last years Pure Coffee was a little lighter.

    In conclusion it passed on it's durability and sillage -

    Check out the Mugler website online boutique it will not be available in department stores until May thought my local Macy's had a full information package on the fragrance.

    Note if you want to order from online do not sign into the Thierry Mugler Boutique otherwise you will get a white screen at checkout.

    Default A*Men Pure Malt

    As there are only a few reviews of this ... how long before it dries down into the familiar base of A*Men?

    The topnotes (if you want to call them that) last almost as long as the entire fragrance. So, you get the peaty whiskey throughout the life on your skin. Despite the raves, I am not convinced. It's certainly nowhere near a favorite for me.

    I tried almost all of Thierry Mugler's, except Men Coffe: I found A Men too sweet, B Men a twist in direction to woody-musk scents that is far from succesful in reducing A Men's original sweetness to an aceptable level and Ice Men odd and still sweet. IMHO, A Men Pure Malt is the only one worth buying.

    I tried it the day before yesterday and found comon topnotes to the original, but the mid and base notes diverge. On a blotter I could clearly smell the whisy-like notes. In my skin, these were unperceptible. I ended up with the impression that A Men Pure Malt is a fine tuned version of the original and the flankers for those that find them cloying an femenine.

    A pitty it only comes in 3.3 OZ bottles.

    Default A*Men Pure Malt -- Aged in Oak Casks?!

    I recall reading some press materials from Mugler that claim that A*Men Pure Malt was created by aging the original A*Men in oak casks. Is this just a little creative marketing or was that really done? I think it's an amazing scent but I remain slightly incredulous to that claim. It would way too easy to create the effect synthetically, if at all. It's damn good stuff either way.

    Yep, I read that too. They have this long story on the box.
    I am not sure however I believe that they actually age the fragrance in oak casks!

    Nevertheless, like you said, it's a fantastic fragrance either way.

    They do have a patent application on the process (no patent I believe - I think the idea may have been out there already).

    Used whiskey barrels used to be dirt cheap in the midwestern U.S. Everybody used them for planters and such. Not sure if they still are that cheap, but it's a nice gimmick and probably not that big of a cost relative to fragrance. Heck - Jack Daniels and Maker's Mark should come out with frags.

    Very well could be true given how dark this juice is compared to regular A*Men and Pure Coffee.
    This scent is one I don't want to like, but I'm starting to like it as much as Pure Coffee if not more. It has a certain character which seems to quiet and unsweeten the A*Men base.
