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.
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?
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.
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.
just got my pure malt in the mail today sorry to hear some of u guys didn't get it
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.
Got my bottle of PM today. Felt like a kid on Christmas
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.
(That being said the new DHI doesn't appeal to me either)

imagination? I don't smell berries anymore.
WTF? Your kidding right?
The berries are the whole point of Pure Malt
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?
Maybe the juice has to be "aged" just like the real thing...
Most likely your nose playing tricks on you.
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...
Time to musk up.
Any news on Pure Coffee? THAT I am excited for
nada. dont you have a bottle?
Doesn't mean I wouldn't buy one for the sake of reselling!
I read a review on another website that said Pure Malt smelled very similar to Givenchy Pi.
Would you agree?
Wow...what a fragrance. The hype is real with this one, folks. Gave it my first real wearing out on the town with some friends tonight and it was kind of embarrassing because I couldn't stop smelling my own arm.
...and neither could the girls.
It's been said before--I know--but this is absolutely delicious stuff. Great blind-buy for me.
What I've been wearing far too much of lately:
-Amouage Lyric Man
-Guerlain Gourmand Coquin
-Creed Jardin d'Amalfi
I was just about to make a post about Pure Malt and say that I noticed it hasn't been talked about in a while. Has the hype finally died?
"I am a robot and I like cheese"
1. Axe Kilo
2. Lectric Shave
3. Vicks Vapor Rub
4. Febreze Pour Homme
5. Preferred Stock
Everyone knows about it at this point. Same with MR, LIDGE, DHI. Hype moves on the next big things after some time.
I want to smell it but not enough to buy a sample so I'll just hope for a re-release.
TM will probably re-release it sometime in the not to distant future, i also agree as the fragrance gets harder to get , the less talk goes on.
When Thierry Mugler re-releases their stuff on their website, is it US only?
Yes, or find a kind American basenoter that is willing to ship a bottle to you.
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...

Just bought a decant. Blind buy. Looking forward to experiencing the hype.
dudee...i so hope they re-release this in USA, my consciousness needs vindication (need to purchase this at retail price)...plus it'd be nice to have backup bottles too (fingers crossed)
How many non-basenoters loved Pure Malt, I wonder? Did it sell well? I guess it's tough to say, cause it wasn't in stores all that long, but I'm curious if it was a hit among the average consumer?
