i'll be waiting eagerly.
Thread: Pure Malt
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.
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.
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!
nope, only a code number and a registration card inside
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 got mine from beautyencounter as well and my box of PM was also missing the wrapper. The box is perfect and the juice smells great though.
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.
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.

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

Depends on how much you like gourmands. Do you like the smell of berries and sweet liquor?
Its definitely more worth $100 than Chanel Allure Sport and Blanche are worth $95 for 100ml.

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...

Oh heck no.
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.
anybody know if its going to be re-released?
Yes. Love it. Love it. Love it.
Probably, I bought two bottles when it came out because I didn't want to go through what I went through to find reasonably priced Pure Coffee. $100? yeah. do it.

I've got Pure Coffee for $85 and Pure Malt for $105 in my sale thread for anyone who's interested......Get it while it's hot. (cause when it's cold outside it'll be even rarer)
