    I think it would be fine if you apply lightly, 2-3 sprays.

    And from Fragrancenet its:

    903118
    09064

    I wonder if the one from Fragrancenet is from 2009?
    You are correct. The 903118/09064 is from original 2009 batch, most likely. If you look at the bottom number it denotes the year with the first two digits at the start of it, from what I can tell. i.e.:

    001220
    10018 -> Denotes 2010

    903118
    09064 -> Denotes 2009

    I really feel like i just smelled a totally different, better fragrance
    Well, here's some proof there is / could be a difference between the two years. In this case Neurosis happens to like the NEWER ONE BETTER. So hey, cool that worked out for you that way. In my case the difference was a negative one, so with any fragrance personal choice I guess. But interesting we've got a second or third person here saying there IS a difference between last year's bottle and this year's "re-release".

    If they are indeed making new batches (rather than shipping out old stock, which I doubt) then it could even be the suppliers where they source the raw materials from have changed something. i.e. - Mugler's manufacturer is using the exact same 'formula', machines, and raw materials to produce the fragrance, but the places where the raw materials come from have made a change somewhere.

    Probably not the easiest thing for them to figure out should they admit there is a difference, but at the same time if people are buying it up and some like 2010's better than 2009's, Mugler might not care to...

    Just another 'limited' aspect of each Limited Edition.

    That is EXACTLY my opinion, and why I liked the 2009 better. I even said I think in my longer post about the experience that I felt the new 2010 one was totally MISSING the smokey aspect.

    So I can concur on that. The smoky aspect was the main difference for me. SJRTX, maybe try another comparison once all the beers wear off lol and see if you still think the the same thing.

    Default Pure Malt age group?

    I've just received a bottle of PM as a gift but from what I've read the genral consensus seems to be 25(around) and up. I absolutely love the smell but being a senior at hs and attending college part time do you guys think it might be too mature for my age group? I would just like to know your take at PM's age group. Or just age group in general. Thanks in advance

    I think 21 and above would be fine. Anyone 20 or younger, it just won't work.

    Simply put, don't wear it.

    I think Pure Malt is one that any age group could wear comfortably. Someone in their late teens could easily pull it off. I say hold on to it. Even if you don't wear it much now, save it for a few years. You'll be glad you did.

    BTW, I hope you sensed my sarcasm Wear whatever you want. If it smells too mature and makes you feel uncomfortable, don't wear it!

    Thank you everyone for your responses. I think ill just try it out a bit more and if it doesn't work out save it for later. Thanks again

    I agree with everyone who says to wear it if you like it; I don't completely understand why certain fragrances are "supposed to" be worn only by people of a certain age. (I don't completely understand supposed gender differences in many fragrances as well, but that might be the subject of another thread.)

    Yeah if you don't end up liking it then you could save it for awhile and then sell it. You could make a pretty penny!

    Who is the spokesmodel for Pure Malt? I haven't seen any ads so I am not sure what group it is targeted towards. Most young people are not Scottish Whiskey drinkers so I would guess Pure Malt would not be their thing as much as a Mojito flavor, green tea, or coffee fragrance might be chosen for the young.

    I have never understood the idea that fragrances are age specific. Are some fragrances better for younger people?? Of course not. After the bottle is put away and the advertisement with the actors face on it is out of the way all you have left is the fragrance itself. What you like and what makes you feel good is most important. It is true that younger people may have less experience and might be unsure of what to wear and so they just go with brands that are marketed towards their peer group. Advertising is all about owning a piece of your mind and most brands select a "face" for their image campaigns to target a particular age group. But, I recommend to not be controlled by the marketers and make your own creative decisions.

    Own yourself and create yourself. Wear what you like!

    My twin second graders wear it and it's just fine on them. My daughter is the one who gets more enthused about it at the moment. As a scotch lover, I'd have never picked out the ''scotchiness'' in Pure Malt at all. That being said, PM is about as close to the bees knees as a fragrance can get.

    Oh....They're 7 and I'm 44 so that spreads the age range around eh?

    This was the only Perfume bottle that I purchased and then RETURNED for a refund the next day ( it was the new edition!) Nothing special in Pure malt, smells sweet and has that Mugler touch as usual... I don't find it necessary and I don't really see what all this HYPE is all about! and like someone mentioned already: DO NOT BLIND BUY THIS! Test it before buying and don't try to convince yourself that you like it because of what you read online.

    you're right. I was really expecting this to be a 5/5 for me and when I got it, 3/5. Not my type of frag, i think its too offensive still.

    Well, it´s hard to say - I can´t imagine a young guy in his teens wearing Aramis - this would probably make me laugh (not in a bad manner)
    I´d say there are some fragrances that are better for younger crowd and there are other, more suitable for more mature men.

    Anyway I agree with the statement "Wear it if you like it" and forget about what other people think about it. If they don´t like it, it´s their problem, not yours.....

    yup, compared my two. One old from fragrancenet and the other purchased new from Nordstroms yesterday. The old one is certainly smoother and seems a bit "deeper" overall. However, this only lasts during the opening, once they dry down the scent is identical. The only thing I noticed and cannot be sure of this because I may not have applied the same amount of both during my side by side comparison, is that the old version seemed to be stronger on my skin.

    I got my first whiff of Pure Malt today at Nordstrom's and I'm pleasantly surprised I like it. It still has that Mugler twangy note in it I find in A*Men but in PM it's wrapped in a more pleasant package. I can't stand that note in A*Men but in PM it's something that I can not only 'bear' but enjoy. I think I just might be acquiring a bottle of this. I'll have to swing by and give myself a good full wearing off the tester before I do.
