    Can anyone please confirm if all Pure Malt retail bottles come with a velvet pouch inside the box?
    I don't suppose that the tester bottles (that look identical to the retail bottles, except that they have a plain white box) come with this velvet pouch.

    Thanks

    Mine's a retail sealed box with the registration code to join the 'cercle', and it doesn't come with a pouch.

    As for the scent itself, this is my first gourmand, and I must say all I smell is OTT sweetness. Personally, I'm have an incorrigible sweet tooth, so I kind of like it. But as a scent, my other vanilla based orientals are more complex and interesting, so if I want to smell sweet, I would prefer to use something like L'Instant pH.

    That's a bit of a surprise since the bottle that I bought from another basenoter, it came in a retail box and also had this big black draw string velvet pouch with Thierry Mugler embossed on it. I am considering to buy a backup bottle and due to my assumption that a tester will not come with this velvet pouch, I am more interested in the retail bottle. However if the retail bottle doesn't come with this pouch, anymore I suppose, I'd rather buy a tester.

    Anyone else has found a big black pouch in their retail box of A*men Pure Malt?

    I absolutely love Pure Malt. In a few years when all of the supplies have ran out and the fragrance is gone forever, I am going to be seriously PISSED OFF!

    I sampled this yesterday at Sephora and have to say I liked it a lot. It's still very much related to Angel Men of course, but a bit more masculine. It's worth a buy since I think it's different enough from A*men, which I owned once several years ago before it got so trendy to have. No desire to have that again.

    I've got to try this one again. When I first tried it, I thought it was too similar to Amen, which I already have, to really give it a whole lot of thought. But after seeing all the critical aclaim, I'm starting to reconsider. Since we're on Thierry Mugler though, I like to compare Givenchy Play Intense to Amen and Pure Malt. I think they're all kinda similar with the whole sweet coffee gourmand thing going on. But I really enjoyed the Play Intense when I gave it a full wearing. It's next on my purchase list, if I don't get Declaration Essence first. That'll be great for the spring/summer. Maybe I'll put off Play Intense until the fall...

    i recently got a bottle from fragerencenet. but it didnt come sealed. the bottle is full and it's not a tester(no writing on the back) and it comes with a reg. code(which i havent entered in yet)

    the box seems a bit worn/used... is there any chance i have a fake or anything..? i thought all the bottles would be sealed?

    Well, its fragrancenet. research them before buying. they sell old/used bottles as new. their packaging is terrible also. careless. it's up to you. I bought mine for $55 mint condition beauty encounter. i wouldn't put up with fragrancenet's bull.

    I tried this today (and still wear it) on my wrist and loved it immediately but after 3 hours it wears close to skin. I can see how this can make fragrance like Rochas Man obsolote in someones wardrobe. Reminds me Angel for women too. Got to buy it while its available here for around 55 Euros online and 80 in retail.

    Exclamation My Pure Malt Experience: Caveat Emptor

    anyone who has check out my wardrobe and half of my posts knows im a huge fan of Thierry Mugler and A*Men specifically. after seeing so many good reviews on youtube and on here about Pure Malt, i was expecting something extraordinary.

    Well the other day i finally tested it...

    this is what all the hype is about? To me it just smelled like they toned the coffee down in the opening of A*Men by alot, replaced it with some sweet berry smell; the heart went straight into A*Men's drydown, and it's base was A*Men + Whoppers (malted milk ball candy). Now i can not deny that smells really good, but something was missing...something that made me love A*Men even when it made me physically sick. Ah! It's that obnoxiousness, that rough, yet sweetly devilish feel to A*Men. It made me realize Pure Malt was Mugler's way of making "A*Men Eau Fraiche", or quite simply, an A*Men that won't offend anyone.

    I never thought i'd be the one to say this but...Pure Malt is really not that good! Do NOT buy it blind. I almost did and i would've hated myself for it since it's truely a mediocre fragrance.

    My sentiments about the original A*men.

    Too loud. Too brash. Too cloying.

    An in your face 2000's version of an 1980's powerhouse.

    I'd recommend something more refined and nuanced such as Endymion, New Haarlem, Bell’Antonio,
    CiocoSpesizissimo, Aomassai or Coze.

    Do you think Thierry Mugler's PURE MALT is worth $100 US for 100ml bottle?

    It retailed for $70 so $100 isn't that big of a mark-up. Also, you should be able to recoup most if not all your money by reselling it if you don't like it. It is a hot item...

    You could ask this question about any scent out there. There are craploads out there that I wouldn't pay a nickel for regardless of the asking price.

    In this case, it's definitely worth it to me. And that's coming from a guy who only owns three bottles that go for more than $75.

    To me Pure Malt is best thing I smelled... Warm, modern, sexy, tasty and unique. I was looking for it since I smelled it once on 1 guy in shop (I didnt know it was Pure Malt, but it had Muglers DNA so It was probable) I have 3 100ml bottles just for myself. I dont feel like I need to look for anything else for cold weather... Top notes can smell bit plastic but drydown is fantastic. Yay for sweet patchouli.

    I think that was a rumor started by a youtube reviewer, which he said another subscriber told him that info. And that subscriber said he read that in an email he sent to Mugler company.


    However, upon several emails from other users, representatives denied any re-release of Pure Malt and stated it was limited and discontinued (this includes me, I emailed them a few months ago). Which is why I bought 2, but now I know I won't ever use them (I dislike the scent), which is why I put them up for sale in the marketplace recently (for really no profit after shipping costs/taxes I had to pay for them).

    Default I feel like I figured out Angel Pure Malt!

    I finally got a chance to try out Pure Malt at the Bay in Calgary. Surprisingly they had a fair bit of stock in both locations, Market Mall and Downtown, one size only and priced at $92. I was pretty eager to try out this fragrance after the rave reviews on basenotes here. Sure enough, spray it on, and let it sit. I like it! Smells a bit boozy, sweet, a bit like a hot toddy with caramel. Something familiar about it though

    Sure enough show it to my girlfriend to take a sniff. Sure enough she says it smells like:



    Rang my bell at the exact same time, it really does smell like carmex for the first 3-4 hours. It softens a bit afterwards to give that A*Men undertones like everyone has been mentioning.

    Not to take away from this cologne, I still like it a fair bit!

    I don't get the rave for Pure Malt at all. I think it smells bad durring all stages, opening/middle/base - just bad.

    Well being as though I have used carmax many of times over the years I must say a big NO! This isnt even a comparison at all. Pure Malt's top notes is a whisky/berry/caramel smell not a medicine stink..... I strongely disagree on this one.

    Im confident you will, a large majority of people who dont like A*men really like Pure Malt, it has that 'just right' feel where A*men is more like 'woah hold on a sec!' if that makes sense!

    Pure Malt is a more polished A*men in my opinion - and more suitable for a wider audience.

    I get this as well. Subtle, but it is in there. I still really like it and have fond memories of a girl that used Carmex. Ring a bell and I'll salivate.

    Not sure I get the Carmex, but I do get a latex-y kind of smell up top, a very sharp latex smell, especially if I spray it on far away from my skin and it dries very lightly. I wrote in the re-release thread that I got a mildly fishy bottle from fragrancenet, so I'm wondering more if my bottle may be spoiled (it came to me unwrapped and seemingly partially used), but the code worked on the TM website.
