Thread: Pure Malt

    I've noticed some bottles surfacing on ebay for slightly cheaper than usual. Even Pure Coffee bottles have been selling for fairly reasonable prices lately.

    I noticed that too. Maybe people who got burned by the release decided to call it quits on the Amen Pure series.

    Can any previous owners who did receive their new bottle compare them? Is it basically the same scent or is this batch worse/better than the first?

    Really? I just did a quick search for Pure Malt on Ebay, and nearly all Buy it Now prices are 130-150. Even the one that folks are bidding on is at 100 dollars, and will certainly go up as the end of the auction nears. How much were they charging before for a bottle if this is cheaper?

    Yeah, I'm not seeing these low prices either. The lowest price full unused bottle goes for over $100 and it's an auction that likely will spike at the end like most do. The only "low" price of Pure Coffee I see is a 75% full bottle without box with a starting bid of $89 and buy it now of nearly $200. The lowest I've seen PC lately for a new and unused bottle is $175 or so. And with that, you have no idea how old the bottle is or if it was ever stored improperly.
    Splits!

    Saw a few PM's go for 110 ish which is lower than usual. Also saw a PC go for around $120. Still expensive, but less than the recent stampede.

    On a related note, I'm wearing the new flanker right now. I know some of you have written it off, but don't. I'll be posting a quick review of it later tonight in the "new flanker available in Canada" thread once it dries down fully. I think I'm a fan.

    Combining food scents and A*MEN or any other TM fragrances is silly. I ain't buying that sh*t from them f*ck that.

    Those are exceptions I would say. The most recent bottle of Pure Coffee I had on my watch list just for curiosities sake sold for over $200 today. The norm for both is something around;

    PM - $150
    PC - $200+

    Based on what I've seen at least. Let us know about the new flanker though. I'm curious about how this one will work out.

    Why? Most of the notes already in A*men are foods. I'll agree adding chili paste seems a bit odd, but I fail to see your reasoning behind this.

    I just don't see how chilli paste could fit with A*MEN. Chocolate, vanilla, caramel and then throw in some chilli, it's random and sounds disgusting. I don't want to try that f*ckin limited edition fragrance. I thought Mugler would try to do better. Nope.

    It's an interesting combination, and I definitely want to try it out. The chili pepper note in Bond's Saks for Him is an interesting one, and gives it a nice kick. That's an incense-based frag though and there are no elements of A*Men in it at all, but it's definitely unique. Hopefully this does go well together and is not some jarbled mess.

    When I tried it, it wasn't labeled so I had no idea what it was. I started shoveling it into my mouth and then my throat started burning (I'm a pretty big panzy when it comes to spicey stuff). All my friends at the table thought it was pretty funny. I saw those Lindt bars around in Southern California from time to time when I lived there, so they probably shouldn't be too hard for you to find. Try the pear one too if you happen to see it.

    Yes and no. Hot peppers / spices are at the forefront of this one for me. You could say the coffee is boosted, because the peppers drown out some of the notes that would compete with coffee in the original. So you could say the coffee is boosted, and it is, but it's by no means the star of the show with this one. I wrote a first impression paragraph in that other thread to the best of my ability, but I'm a semi-novice nose still, so take it with a grain of salt.

    Now wearing it inappropriately to school for the hell of it. It's fucking delicious. My brother really wanted one too but he got his order canceled, unfortunately. PM and PH are my fav frags at the moment, although realistically, I can only see myself wearing PH more often as something befitting for everyday use.

    I take that back, it's my first full wearing on my neck/chest today, and I definitely get a good amount of coffee out of this. A nice coffee/chocolate vs hot peppers.

    I'll agree there. This one I don't have it on the front of my "to try list". I expected Pure Malt to be good, and it was. I expected Pure Havane to be good, and it was. This one though I really don't have any expectations one way or the other. If Mugler did a pear chocolate one though...

    (That being said the new DHI doesn't appeal to me either)

    The new DHI won't have any cocoa/chocolate though, correct?

    I think I need to find one of those pear chocolate bars, sounds good to me (but then I have a relentless sweet tooth).

    Personally not interested in the new Amen, but if I saw it at a store, I'd try it.

    Might be my imagination, but I'm smelling more berries in the spray from my old bottle and more nuttiness in the spray from my new bottle. The newer one may be more manly but yeah if they reformulated it to take away the berries then that's odd.

    Anyone else get their new bottle yet? Everyone should have gotten them by now, no?

    You know, I waited (more like hoped for) in anticipation for this for at least half a year and now that I have it, I'm not so sure I like it more than Pure Havane... The top notes are so very nice but the heart is really dense. It feels that PH is more well rounded--am I just losing my mind? Ironically, I bought PH in desperation because I previously had missed out on my chance to own PM...

    I find PH more wearable than PM. While Malt is a little more original and unique, PH is far more pleasing and versatile of a scent.

    ...and neither could the girls.

    It's been said before--I know--but this is absolutely delicious stuff. Great blind-buy for me.

    Not sure if this is a EU only relaunch but I'm seeing that Pure Malt has again resurfaced on the Sephora.fr website...hoping this points to a N. American relaunch in the near term but based on prior posts, it sounds lke this can't necessarily be assumed...

    interesting question, but it does have a smell that would seem attractive to the masses, all the people around me have gushed over how great it smells so at the very least it probably is very liked by consumers (no controversial notes in it, oud, civet, things of the sort etc.). I just wish Mugler would make the Pures permanent.
