    Maybe this stuff really does take a long time to make due to the "aged in oak barrels" thing.

    I want more pure malt too, but I don't want Thierry Mugler taking short cuts either. I got some from the September release and it was the same high quality as the earlier releases.

    I had an opportunity to purchase this AM (thanks to this thread) but passed on it (very tempted though). I like PM a lot but I don't find it to be a scent that I can wear on most occasions. Maybe it's a gourmand thing.

    That's disappointing, wanted to grab a bottle of this. Don't really understand why they are so averse to selling this in reasonable quantities.

    Maybe as someone said, ingredients need time. Just like wine and scotch distributors only have a certain lot for each year. Who knows.

    Even with the mania on basenotes for PM, I'm sure a-men outsells PM 100:1 so in the big scheme of things its not like Mulger is getting killed by not releasing this more widely.

    What about Pure Coffee? Is it aged in barrels too? If not, he should make that a permanent fragrance in the A*Men line.

    Wait, do they claim it is literally aged in barrels? I always thought they just pumped some different aromachemicals into the mix to make Pure Malt. I have a hard time believing that there are actual casks and aging involved.

    yeah they actually claim that on their website.

    Default Re: pure malt!

    I highly doubt it's actually aged in the barrels, sometimes you just gotta play along with that stuff.

    I really hope they re-release Pure Coffee though, I've only got about 50ml left!

    if pure malt was aged and all that why is it $10 cheaper then Havana and $20 cheaper then the chili pepper one? I highly doubt it needs to be aged and only 100 bottles at a time...

    weird they did pure malt again and not pure coffee yet. my 3 bottles of PM says ready to be shipped! wooohooo! I do like PM the best out of them all. now I have enough for a couple years!

    Default Pure Malt Initial Review

    Ok, today I received my sample of Pure Malt from the Perfume Court... Finally got to sample this fragrance... so far this smells to me like Angel Man toned down with a touch of whiskey... very nice! Let's wait and see how this develop... but so far, it's very nice... but i was expecting much more from this fragrance since it's very popular and rare now...

    I have owned a few bottles in the past. Every once in a while Thierry Mugler would put it up on their website and I would purchase. Even though I like the fragrance a lot I don't think it is worth all of the love that it is getting. I really enjoy the boozy opening but it does dry down to a very generic vanilla dry down. To my nose this is not worth paying niche prices for. None of the Pure series is worth what people are willing to pay on ebay and sale forums. I want to try Pure Havane, but I am scared that I would like it and have to overpay for another Thierry Mugler scent.

    They just made it available at the end of last year. They are probably not going to make it available for quite some time. It is in your best interest to purchase some samples from the perfume court so this hype monster could slowly die.

    If you like the idea, but not the boozy note, there is the much cheaper Enrico Sebastiano Fine Cologne. With than one, you get spice and lime, with a hint of woods, before going into a very similar base.

    The biggest difference between Pure Malt and the original A*men is that Pure Malt is much much smoother than A*men... you don't get that harsh top note like A*men, and the whiskey note blends in very nice... I am not sure why Theirry Mugler pulled this one off the market? Why is he making this a Limited Edition, when so many people love this one? Makes no sense....

    There is nothing - NOTHING on the market that smells close to this. The other A*Men of course resemble this, especially in the opening but in the drydrown this is in a league of its own.

    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 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.

    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.

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

    Prices are a result of supply and demand.

    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.

    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.

    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.
