    Nice review and nice Mugler Collection!

    I agree that Mugler Ice*Men is unlike anything else. If it is gourmand then it is an extremely light gourmand as the chocolate note is ever so lightly done. My least favorite part of the scent is the opening that does smell a bit like some other aquatics or sport fragrances on the market - but this changes quickly to the chocolate wood middle note. You didn't mention the light patchouli in the drydown which is my favorite part of the fragrance. You can best smell this drydown aspect by sniffing a shirt or T Shirt day after wearing Ice*Men - the drydown smell is a very ephemeral silver light patchouli - very nice.

    Again, I cant watch this at work, but Ice*Men has been intruiguing me for a long time now, and I havent even sampled it yet. Theres something to say about a light, refreshing gourmand (and Mugler does gourmand ever so well), that has me really curious about this. I might even blind-buy a bottle if it comes around cheap enough.

    I think Ice Men is superb. I don't see it as a gourmand at all, but rather a light patchouli fragrance, and a great one at that. I find Ice Men to have a feminine feel to it as well (it reminds me a lot of Cleopatra by Tocca), and is one of the reasons I find it so unique and enjoyable, compared to the run of mill designer masculines in the market. I smell the patchouli throughout its duration, from top notes to drydown. I look forward to buying a bottle soon.

    Considering I think A*Men is one of the worst things this side of the plague, I'm going to give Ice*Man a miss.

    I actually really like Ice*Men. The patchouli is really nice, and it's amazing how they've managed to make patchouli smell fresh. BUT, and there always is a but, that drydown is SO heavy on colone, which I truly detest, that in the end it becomes something I can admire, like even, but not purchase.

    Even though some of you don't like this cologne (I guess i understand that), you have to admit it is pretty unique. I'd rather smell something weird that I dislike rather than some safe boring pleasant scent.

    I don't see any similarities whatsoever with AMen. I despise AMen too, but I love Ice Men. AMen is an overbearing, syrupy mess with an awful chocolate pudding accord. Ice Men, on the other hand, is a beautiful, light and transparent patchouli fragrance.

    Yeah sorry I should have also mentioned that dominant patchouli gives me nightmares. I'll give it a spritz next time I'm in store though. A*Men just made me psychologically allergic to all Thierry Mugler fragrances.

    Just tested- 5 hours on my skin but can still smell it on my shirt. It seems quite linear but it does smell good. Worth buying. I just bought the 50ml bottle , should have gotten the big one. This perfect for warm countries like the Philippines , could be an everyday and all year round scent

    Haha, chill out. Get it. Cause it's ice men.

    The rest of the title is in english, the scent isn't called Ice*Men Par Thierry Mugler it's just called Ice*Men. It's like weaboos who say "that's so kawaii!!!"

    yeah A*Men is way too syrupy/magical cough syrup kind of smell with too much sparkle in it. I have yet to smell the ICE version..

    It's not Mugler's top 3 but it's OK.
