    Im actually not joking, im sure they are not re-releasing this for the few people who already have bottles. They are a business, and they are releasing this in the hope that due to its popularity it will sell, not to please the fans who already have it.

    I guess a better question for me to ask would be how popular is A*Men in your area? Also, is there a Nordstrom in your area as i believe it's only being released there. I probably came off sounding rude and i apologize if i did. I do not think you've got anything to worry about in terms of exclusivity unless A*Men is already popular and there's a Nordstrom around...plus the SA's would probably be instructed to push the hell out of it. The average guy will buy what the SA's are selling, hence why Acqua Di Gio is extremely popular in the states, or why 1 Million is so popular in Europe. Also, television advertising plays a huge role in popularity. For example, i remember there being Acqua Di Gio ads on TV from when i was younger. At the time i never even knew what it was but looking back on it, if i'd seen those ads when i was buying my first cologne, i'm sure i'dve bought it.

    Going back to Nordstrom (and directing this question to everyone viewing this), do you think this will be a US only re-release? I know there was an e-mail saying it wouldn't be available in the Netherlands, and i asked where it'd be available in the states was told "Nordstrom stores", but i don't know if that's exclusively there or just where it would be guaranteed to be stocked (Macy's had it at it's original release, correct?) Has anyone asked if it'll be available anywhere else?

    Using the new liquor casting technology a new version of Amen and Angel was suppose to be released each year. From my understanding vodka was next on the list for Amen....

    Well, there is an special kit containing amen pure malt, alien liqueur de parfum and angel liquer de parfum. I believe that maybe the relaunch will be only made in this kit.

    If you're right, there will be blood! I doubt they'd do that though. I mean they'd sell maybe 5 per store as those kits are NOT cheap. Besides who wants all 3 at once? Not too many people in the general public. If they released Pure Malt by itself however, i think it'd sell pretty well

    I believe that it would sell better too if it was re-released outside the kit, but I don`t know, maybe they inteded to relaunch pure malt just to do this kit.

    I was in Nordstrom's here in Tampa over the weekend. They had half a dozen brand new bottles of Pure Malt on the shelf. And it's nowhere near fall down here.

    I've never seen it on their shelves in the 6 months I've been visiting the men's fragrance department.

    Interesting....I know a Norstrom near me has a half empty tester of it (from which i hijacked a sample ) and the SA said she could actually order me a bottle so i'm gunna have to call em up and secretly go down there (my girlfriend would have a heart attack if i spent $70 on "ANOTHER?!" bottle of cologne. DAMNIT WOMAN ITS PURE MALT!)

    Just to re-confirm, I was back at Nordstrom's this afternoon after work because I needed purchase a fragrance for my wife at Sephora. There were 4 bottles of Pure Malt left (down from 6 on Saturday) and a tester on the shelf. According to the SA they've been there about a week. New shipment. He didn't know if this was another limited run or not, just that it had been re-released. He was slammed and having to cover men's furnishings so I didn't have him look up the price for me.

    But they are pushing the Bleu de Chanel right now which is good for those of us that want to keep PM as a secret.

    The also had the metal flask with AMen which I had never seen there before. I'm going back for that next payday because as you can see in my sig I've been looking for the metal flask for a while. They had a collectors AMen box with a metal flask wrapped in leather, too, which I had also never seen in there.

    Is the 'pure malt' anything like the original A*men? I just test run the original today for the first time. The paper sniff had kept me away from trying it for awhile. But I was intrigued enough to give it a go. I kind of liked it at first putting it on, not loved it, although the dry down and lingering scent just nauseated me after awhile. I'm just wondering if I should go out of my way to get a sniff of the pure malt or even the pure coffee if they are too similar to the A*men. If they aren't I'll check 'em out.

    I think it's not a re-release but dumping their stock via Nordstrom because this is what the French customer service replied to me:

    Bonjour,

    Je vous remercie de l'intérêt que vous portez à notre Maison.
    Ce parfum sera disponible tant qu’il y aura encore du stock en parfumerie ou sur notre boutique en ligne.

    Sincèrement,

    Pure Malt is similar to AMen IN THE DRYDOWN! Pure Malt has that projecting gourmand scent base just like AMen.

    But the opening of Pure Malt is WAY BETTER, in my opinion. It doesn't have that overbearing spicy accord. Pure Malt has a boozy, single malt scotch... well, malty scent I guess you could say. It is far superior to AMen - again just in my opinion.

    That's why once I found a bottle of Pure Malt I was very disappointed that it was a limited run at that time. I enjoy it much more than AMen.

    I'm saying MY Nordstrom's had it. But, that may mean some of the others do too. I'm going back to my silver flask this weekend. That reminds me, I need to call and see if they can hold it for me.

    They are holding one for me right now. It's $109.

    Having not ever had one of these metal flasks, they say it is refillable. What exactly does that mean? Are there refill bottles or do they pump juice in to the silver one or something?

    No, you buy the refill bottles and put them into the "shell"

    My Nordstrom did not have Pure Malt, or the tester they used to have

    Has anyone asked if it'll be ALL Nordstrom stores or if its just random ones? Basically, whether or not this is a legitimate re-release or an excess stock dumping

    That will be a puzzler. Thanks to you Neurosis, I was calling LA Nordstrom stores yesterday. None have it.

    Nordstrom seems to the focal point since the rep referenced it in the email to you. But I wonder how the distribution will really work, city-by-city. Here in Los Angeles, I only ever saw the A*Men flankers in Saks. Don't know if it is a Nordstrom exclusive, or if it will vary by market. Maybe she saw your city and knew it would be Nordstrom in your area.

    My personal opinion is that it would be weird if smaller Bay stores in Canada are telling me they are going to have it in stock maybe as early as the fall for it to just be a excess stock dump.

    Well i actually asked if it'd "be available at a retailer such as Macy's" and she replied that it'll be available at Nordstrom stores. I think what'll really matter is if it'll be available online at Nordstrom, as that would mean anyone on here could order it atleast, and that'd mean it's an actual release instead of Nordstrom becoming Thierry Mugler's version of TJ Maxx...cept the price remains high

    Do you guys want me to go buy what's left at my Nordstrom's and ship it to you? I'm half tempted to snatch them up and sell them on ebay.

    But if any Basenoter's want me to go pick one up, I'll just sell it at cost plus shipping. I work about 2 miles from the Nordstrom's here in Tampa and I can swing by on any day to pick it up.

    I've never offered to do anything like this before and I'm not sure how it works, but I'll be happy to help you guys out.

    Just let me know.
