    Just came from Macy's and was able to test Angel Men and Pure Malt. I like the opening of Pure Malt better -- it's very different, like something I've never smelled before; so now, I understand all the praises on this fragrance.

    The dry down between Angel Men and Pure Malt are almost identical. However, it's a little bit on the feminine side for me.

    Question: I wasn't able to test Pure Coffee. How are its note stages compared to AM and PM?

    Thanks in advance.

    Have been using it for a week, not a single compliment. Asked a woman friend today and got this "It's not bad" response. Not as chocolaty as A*Men, personally it is overrated as stated by some others. I'll grab a bottle of A*Men when I have more cash, though I'm keen to see Pure Havana or whatever next one from TM is going to be.

    Tried it today on my skin...not impressed. Dont see whats so special about it. Not sure if it was the tester bottle but the sprayer sucked, dripped all over the place. It seriously smells very generic to me. Pure Nothing.

    I got a second bottle of Pure Malt. PM smells incredible. I am thinking about getting a third bottle, but there are other frags I want to try. I am banking on a bottle of PM lasting a very long time because it only needs two sprays and it is not an everyday scent. Pure Malt is for special nights.

    Stuff is hyped. Good stuff but not as great as people say.And no, girls will not jump on your lap and lick you. it doesn't have the "wow" factor. It's just "meh, next." Not very versatile and boring. I'm glad swapped it for terre d'hermes.

    Default Thierry Mugler Pure Malt real?

    Ok, I'm new to this site so please be patient with me. Purchased a "new" bottle of Pure Malt from Walgreens.com. Bottle arrived in shrink wrap style cover, but the serial number on the bottom of the box and on the inside flap was cut out. the serial number on the bottom of the bottle was scracthed off also. Real?

    Real.

    Contact your seller and ask if you have questions about the product you bought. Especially someplace like Walgreens.com. They know why they do things, we don't necessarily.

    Ask yourself why any faker would go to the trouble of making a fake something and then removing or pretending to remove something.

    Spray it on, contact Walgreens with your questions, and be happy.

    According to conversations here, that indicates only that the bottle became grey market at some point. It is likely authentic, just got diverted from its intended sale point.

    Welcome Longhrns! No problem, all we were new!
    I have not tried Pure Malt yet. My suggestion is read the reviews, and compare what you have with reviews.

    Thanks guys, I greatly appreciate your help. I was hoping it was the real deal. It smells good, but I'm just a "real deal" guy, meaning I want what was advertised. I didn't pay below market value, so that wasn't an indicator. I paid $72 for the bottle, which seems to be the average selling price. The box and bottle look very much authentic from the pictures and posts on this site, just leary of the above mentioned serial number discrepancy.

    But if it's just a "grey market" issue, I'm ok with that. As long as it's real juice, that's all I care about. The bottle is full and appropriately colored. I really could care less of serial number registry, etc. Thanks for your help guys, super fast responses!

    From what I understand is that many of the fragrances sold on the Walgreens website comes from some place on Long Island NY and from a well known online seller that their name is escaping me right now. I'm sure someone will pop up and provide their name. So instead of trying to stock all of the fragrances Walgreens has a volume pricing they get from this seller and just let's them fill the orders for them.

    I bought from Walgreens once, it came with the LI, NY return address but billing page had Walgreen's name all over it so it looked like it was from them but it was from that seller. There was a thread on Walgreens as a seller one time when they had great deals on Creed GIT and OV and someone mentioned the name of their source. Can't remember it though.

    I've never seen a fake TM fragrance in the rubber bottle. I don't care for them because of the sprayers, but these would be a real hassle for anyone to try and duplicate.

    You can't tell in the last picture, but there is a rectangular area where you can tell the serial number was cut out. Legit?

    So let me understand this as I just got my bottle from Walgreens. Grey market means that someone opened the original cellophane shrink wrap, removed the bottle and scratched off the serial number on the bottom of the rubber flask as well as cutting it out from the box flap and then re-wrapped it in cellophane shrink wrap again?

    I ask as mine appeared to be "factory sealed" in cellophane wrap when it arrived - yet, just as with so many other people, when I unwrapped it - the serial number scratch outs were clearly evident exactly as in Longhorns photos.

    Oh, so my question is...

    Who does this?
    How common is it?
    And they have the machinery to very professionally re-shrink wrap it again in cellophane?

  29. #239

    Default Re: Thierry Mugler Pure Malt real?

    Yes, that's what the consensus is. And it's not hard to find cellophane wrapping devices, quite easy actually. But if the bottle appears intact besides the scratched off serial number, the bottle is full of juice, and the smell is good, no worries. Just the seller you got it from isn't an "authorized" Thierry Mugler distributor, so they had to remove proof by removing the serial numbers so the customers can't register the bottle.

    Surely this can't be legal?
    Surely Walgreens can't know this is going on?
