    The price is £45.

    Sorry to double post, but just to bump up the thread and update on my findings, I couldn't see it anywhere here in Nottingham. Tried House of Fraser, Debenhams and John Lewis and nothing. Well, actually, John Lewis could possibly have it in the back somewhere. They didn't have anything out on display, but their little price list did include a "Pure Male" (mistake or intentional, I dunno) under 'limited edition', 100ml for £45. I was so close to asking them if they had it, but I actually ordered a small decant of it earlier this week, and I just knew if I asked them and they had it in stock, I would buy it there and then, which would make the whole "sampling the decant" thing redundant, especially since I wasn't a huge fan of the original A*Men's monstrous sillage and longevity, so I decided to skip it this time. But there is hope.

    Just to confirm that it's back on sale here in Glasgow - at House of Fraser.

    It's funny...I ALMOST wish that it doesn't stay for that long, and become extremely popular. I like having an extraordinary scent that few people have.

    I just purchased a bottle at The Bay here in Canada (Toronto - Queen st location). The SA said it's available across the country. Launched again as a limited edition, and it's flying off their shelves (or so she said).

    In any case, big thumbs up for this!

    Anyone checked around Nordstroms lately as to whether or not it's stocked yet?

    Confirming it has been re-released as well. The bay in Toronto (various locations) all have it. Did someone mention something about an EdP version?

    Also has anyone tried the new release? is it the same? I thought Pure Malt had an ingredient that was aged for 10 years, weird that they'd re-release it within a year.

    UPDATE: Called my Nordstrom and "reserved" a bottle (she'd hold it for me for 24 hours after it came in). She said they'd be getting 3 bottles (thats it?!) in the next 2 weeks and someone else already reserved one

    Congratz that you FINALLY found your Pure Malt . I am wearing it myself atm. I just found that I really like opening notes that lasts maybe first 5 minutes, then it became sweet synthetic something for next hour (which is not that great) and finish as awesome comfortable sweet patchouli (it doesnt change at all after that)
    TOP 3 hot weather:

    1. Gucci Pour Homme II
    2. Creed Millesime Imperial
    3. Lalique Encre Noire

    Thank you! HOPEFULLY i can get it (she said i've got 24 hours to get it after she calls, its like an action movie lol), and if not through Nordstrom, i'll go elsewhere.

    To me, the immediate top notes are kind of annoying. They're very...its like a medicinal, plastic...blah, but within a few more seconds it sweetens up to a boozy, peaty, sweet fragrance. From there it becomes a very nice vanilla with peat notes, and eventually the patchouli comes in and seals the deal for me. I'm really hoping this is my "holy grail", but everyone on here knows the chances of that happening...I thought 1 Million would be my last fragrance, but as soon as i heard Pure Malt was coming back, i sprayed the sample i had and knew i'd have to get a bottle. Stupid fragrances and their addictive properties...

    Thanks to you Neurosis I've been randomly calling the many LA based Nordstroms. I'm getting an amusing mixed bag of feedback from some very confused SAs. Today I got a very condescending speech from a woman about Pure Malt being a limited release from last year.

    BTW, give it up on this "holy grail" nonsense. You're a Basenoter through and through, pal. If you think it ends with Pure Malt, think again.

    The SA i spoke to today was pretty confused too, more so as to how i knew about it. She said "So how in the world did you find out about this anyways? I didn't think anyone knew about it yet"

    That last thing made me laugh cause it's so true. It's almost a guarantee i'll be back on here again in a month or two frantically trying to get my hands on something else, thinking it's the last fragrance i'll want

    I guess I have to ask directly, as I cannot find a review that praises one over the other. Pure Coffee or Pure Malt? Which is better? Which flask is more frequently reached for? I understand that I'm asking a difficult question, but out of the 2 only one should prevail right?

    "Better" is in the end up to your nose. But for what it's worth, there's a two page thread here with people eagerly seeking Pure Malt and a lot more threads about it in general.

    Pure Coffee doesn't seem to spark as much interest.

    I have Pure Coffee and i like the scent but the only problem is its hard to wear and i dont really want to be walking around smelling like coffee!!! And the chicks will probably get grossed out! Should i just sell pure coffee and buy pure malt instead???

    So I finally found the time to go to several stores and ask in person about Pure Malt. House of Fraser said they don't have it, and it's most likely only going to be in the major stores (London, Birmingham etc). John Lewis still have "Pure Male" listed, but when I asked they didn't even know anything about it. THEN WHY ARE YOU LISTING IT?!

    So annoying. I was pretty excited to finally getting a bottle, no dice though. This is in Nottingham by the way.

    They didn't make anymore. They were just selling excess stock. I think the same thing happened with Pure Coffee if I'm not mistaken.

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

    I went to three nordstrom's here in Southern Cali (riverside, Santa Ana and in the Inland Empire). None of them had any idea about getting any more bottles of Pure Malt. One lady at the Riverside store said the A*men representative was just there yesterday and didn't mention a thing about re-launch or them getting left overs. Oh well, seems souther cali wont be receiving any

    Well no bottles in my local stores aside, I just got my decant and my God, this stuff is NICE!! No where near as choking as the original, and the opening is a really really nice smoky, woody fruit. I can really smell the smoky woods in it, just like it's been sitting in a barrel.

    House of Fraser have it on their website, so I may just get a bottle now.

    I went to my store and actually pre-bought. supposed to show up at my house within 2-3 weeks. I guess stores already have it in, but they can't release them till every store has them ready? Weird stuff

    My local Nordstrom said they were given a ship date of 9-15-10 and stated that they were being sent many bottles. I've noticed that some stores seem to definately confirm that it is coming in soon and others don't even have a clue that it is being re-released. I wonder if only certain locations are going to carry it this time around. Why else would some stores be so clueless while others have known for a week and a half?

    Could be mixed signals from Nordstrom corporate or from TM's home office.

    I didn't realize you didn't already have a bottle....I assumed you were just a fan like me. Why didn't you just order from Beauty Encounter via Amazon? Is it considerably cheaper than Nordstroms?

    Beauty Encounter is currently selling it for $110 - doesn't it normally sell for $75 at Nordstroms? I assume Beauty Encounter's price will significantly drop after the official re-release. How much were they selling it for before it became so hard to come by?

    ^thats why i didnt buy it from beauty encounter...$110, versus $70, plus nordstrom is basically guaranteed to be legit

    Tired of all the speculation and conflicting information I finally bought my Pure Malt from Beauty Encounter. I got 10%ff and free shipping/no tax. Maybe I paid a bit more than what it will be if or when it arrives in stores, but I was okay with that. I didn't want to take a chance that it didn't arrive in stores and then sold out on line. A roll of the dice I guess. Hope it does finally come to Nordy's for you guys. Enjoy, it's a winner, especially with the cooler weather coming.
