Thread: Pure Malt

  1. #301

    Default Re: Re-Launch of A-Men Pure Malt?

    I got a sample to try a testing of and the first wearing wasn't working for me. It still had too much of the A*men note in it for me to enjoy it all day. I tried again a few days back and it was better second time around but not 'loving it'. Still not sure if I can wear it all day. That note gives me a headachy feel. I have Pure Coffee and have no problems whatsoever, I actually love the frag but that note is barely there in that one.

    What note is it that gives you the headache? Have you been able to discover what it is?

    It's the one that is the A*Men signature note. I guess people call it a 'tar' like note. On paper it didn't jump out at me as prominently with the Pure Malt as it does the original and that really appealed to me cause I liked the malty, smokey vibe happening with PM. Once I got it on my skin that note really stepped forward and became almost unbearable.

    If I smell it occasionally like I was when occasionally sniffing it on paper throughout the day it's not so bad but when it's on my skin and omnipresent it just gets me queasy and head achy. I tried a lighter application the second time around and it was better, less tar, more malt. I'm gonna try it again in a week or so and see if I can dial in an application that will allow me to enjoy it.

    If Mugler with Pure Malt had toned down that 'tar' note and just hinted at it in the background like they did with the Pure Coffee I'd be loving PM. Although as it sits rights now I'm gonna have to balance the application just right or find myself not enjoying it at times depending on whether I get it right or not. That's a tricky game to be playing where one extra spray or too close to the nose or too warm of a day or anything that ratchets the intensity up too much for me it will ruin my day.

    I am hooked on Pure Malt. I just picked up another bottle. Pure Malt may be the most addicting scent I have ever smelled. My bottles of Pure Malt will never be for sale, not even if someone offered $200 for a bottle. In my opinion, it smells better than anything made by creed or tom ford.

    Should I go back and pick up a third bottle? The only reason I didn't buy a third bottle is because I expect 200ml to last many years. PM is not an everyday scent, it is for special nights. I can not imagine going through a bottle very quickly.

    Its patchouli mixed with coffee. Every Mugler fragrance has given me a headache at first, and its because of the patchouli. I know because thats the only note i'd smell and i'd be sick all day (headache, dizzy). Borneo 1834 is practically straight patchouli and it did the same to me.

    There is NO TAR NOTE in A*Men. I don't know who started that misconception but its unfortunately caught on... Its just the dirty note of patchouli modified by the coffee. It comes off as dark and bitter at first, but with more testing/wearings it becomes sweeter, more coffee like. Thats what I recommend to all A*Men haters: keep trying it

    Well, the Thierry Mugler site actually says that tar is a note.

    Though I don't get the tar note in Pure Malt as much as I do in the original. But that damned patchouli. I wish they left it out.

    Well if you combine both of our posts you get the full picture haha. "an association of tar"...and i'm assuming that arises from the patchouli coffee combo.

    So I guess i've been wrong all along, there is a tar note... i just dont smell it or just get a coffee vibe instead

    Well it's definitely not loud, but it's there. It's not like the petroleum note in Fahrenheit or anything. I started getting whiffs of it around 3-4 hours after I applied it. I've only worn it maybe 2-3 times. The patchouli really makes it a no go for me.

    I'd probably have liked it better if the tar note is stronger; would make it more like whiskey.

    I have a 09 and 10 bottle and i get a more smokey tobacco whiff on the 09 version, the 10 smells better and smoother imo

    Yea, it doesn't smell like 'tar' to me, but that's what it seems like most were calling it so for ease of identification I used the term people were using. To me it smells like latex in the original and a tire fire in Pure Malt. I'm not a fan of patchouli either and for me to enjoy a frag using it I find it needs to be well disguised for me to enjoy.

    Just a quick question, maybe I'm being stupid, but how do you remove it from the rubber casing?

    Take a letter opener and score along the bottom of the bottle and seperate the base from the casing. Then you remove the bottom using the opener and gently push the bottle out.

    The bottle looks very naked without the rubber casing, so I've just cut open the top and put the bottle back in. Looks much better.

    Unfortunately you are going to be subjected to paying a good chunk of coin. At this point it is really only in the hands of private holders who can charge whatever they deem fit for it. Your best bet, and the route I went, is to scour the swaps / sales threads on this website and keep your fingers crossed that one pops up.

    Or you could save your money or spend them on some of the many other dreamy fragrances thats out there.

    ...and then hope Pure Malt will be re-released in 1-2 (which it prolly will)!

    I just sold my reserve bottle of Pure Malt about 2 weeks ago. It was sold for $65, wasn't looking to rip anyone off. At that time you could still find it at Fragrancenet. Now you are going to be stuck with the re-sellers on ebay looking to double up on what they paid for it!

    It's not a summer fragrance so unless you just want to spend the money and watch it set till fall or winter I'd wait. Not to mention it's very close to A*men so paying that much extra for a hint of booze is crazy.

    I totally wasn't into fragrances back when Pure Malt was in stores (re-released), it frustrates me that i missed out on the time window to get several bottles of Pure Malt.
