    I haven't heard of any differences from others on this forum, but I'm not sure.

    This has to stop! Creed has some noticeable differences but that is the only house that I have experienced significant differences with some of their fragrances from year to year. I am not so sure about batch to batch.
    My current top ten:
    1. Spice and Wood
    2. Tonka Imperiale
    3. Dior Homme
    4. Pure Malt
    5. Oud Wood
    6. Ambre Nuit
    7. L'air Du Desert Marocain
    8. Noir de Noir
    9. Apple Brandy
    10.Straight to Heaven

    Hmm so I guess the heat during shipment caused it to change during the summer. I remember when I opened the package it was red hot and notice it didn't smell the same as the other pure malt I have. To be honest it smelt more sweeter and stronger and not as smooth.

    Default Pure Malt - What's the Fuss?

    Just got 5ml decant of Pure Malt and as an variation on A-Men is fairly good one, but that still don't make it top notch fragrance.

    I saw some ridiculously high prices asked for this one and I am inclined to think it is only because most of the fragrance lovers followed the hype and didn't try sample first.

    If this one is in the mass production I don't think they could ask more than $60-$70 for 100ml and after the market would have got saturated you could get it in a gift set for the same price.

    Question is why did you pay $60+ for this fragrance (if you did). Is it beacuse it is not in mass production and it is hard to get ti or you really think it is worth it.

    At the end I am glad that I tried it and I am now done with whole Muggler A men line. Not my cup of tea.
    Right now I think that I have all the fragrances that I want.

    I think that it's one you either love at first smell or dislike rather quickly. I'm in the first group.

    I paid over $60 for this because it can easily be sold back for more due to availability and hype. It holds a high value plus its a great scent.

    Personally, I think it's the best gourmand there is.

    Neither love, Neither dislike it. I am just plainly indifferent to this scent. I don't see any value in owning this one.
    As for the gourmand scents that most of the basenotes crowd knows about, Chergui is way much better than this one and New Haarlem as a matter of fact.
    Right now I think that I have all the fragrances that I want.

    I do like it, I alway spray some on every time I go to my friends. But I think there's a reason why I keep going back to the original the one that started this hype A*Men.

    I think it is a great scent but IMO there are much better gourmand's out there than this one for the same or less money.

    what do you recommend in the lower price ranges? I do have au masculin which i like a lot also and rochas to me is just okay.

    Default Re: Pure Malt - What's the Fuss?

    Just like any fragrance, it's only worth it if you love the scent.

    Prices are a result of supply and demand.

    Personally, I think the Pure Malt and Coffee are great... not super versatile but I'm happy to have 'em.

    I actually like some of the Givenchy line... Play, Play Intense, Pi, Gentleman. They have a lot of good inexpensive gourmand scents.

    I got this for $125 and I really couldn't be happier. It's one of my favorite scents. I'm sure part of the reason I was willing to pay that much was that I love collecting things, especially if they're hard to find...but the scent lives up to my hopes.

    Good, but not great. Nothing more, nothing less. Never understood the fuss personally.

    Even though it's over hyped here it's still one of my favs. This was the one that started my obsession with fragrances.

    Default Re: Pure Malt - What's the Fuss?

    It's a nice scent, but overrated. I think the whole mystique about Pure Malt is the fact that it's discontinued. If it was still in production, not nearly as much people would give a damn.

  27. #417

    Default Re: Pure Malt - What's the Fuss?

    It's simultaneously a very nice fragrance and overrated. I can understand why so many people love it but I'd never pay some of the high prices being asked.

    Not looking to hijack the topic at hand but, is there some certainty or even an ETA on when Pure Malt or the other much-ballyhooed (sorry, just always wanted to use that word ) flankers will be re-released or re-re-re-released?? I'm a bit new to the TM line so, I don't fully understand the company's M.O. re: these flankers - seems like it's the ol' OPEC school of limited supply game. And it sounds like when/if they re-appear it may only be via the official TM website...thanks in advance for any enlightenment.

    I don't think it's overrated , as i have never smelled anything quite like it . Add to the fact that it smells realllyy good !

    Me as well... not sure if that has been a good or bad thing?!?! Have probably spent over $1500 since my 1st bottle of Pure Malt.
