    I have Play Intense and I'm on the fence if I should blind buy Pure Malt or not, do they smell the same?

    This Pure Malt frenzy is driving me nuts.

    Play Intense reminds me original A*Men lot. Pure Malt is also similiar but instead of just huge chocolate + coffee blast you also get boozy liquerish vibe. IMHO it is worth to own both.

    That depends on you. I like it, but am not that wild about it. Neurosis, I don't know if you have tried this yet. It's quite similar to A*Men, but much quieter overall wearing experience. I think you'll love it, and it may be a nice alternative to A*Men for you. But from what I can tell with your A*Men posts, it will not dethrone A*Men as your favorite.

    While many here are all in a frenzy over it, the public at large is not necessarily sweeping it off the shelves. You should have time to wear the first bottle a few times and decide if it's all that.

    I wouldn't get hopes up insanely high for this if you haven't smelled it before. I'm definitely getting a bottle, but I still think A*Men is better than Pure Malt.

    It's at the Nordstrom in my neighborhood now. The helpful and cheery sales associate graciously made not one but two generous samples - so much that I might not even have to buy it now. Mmmmm. . . hate to punish them for good behavior, but seriously, it's pretty strong stuff. One spray and you're done. Still, I might consider buying a bottle now that it's reasonably priced - $70. If it's really a limited edition, that would be a pretty good investment. Bet you could turn it on the net in a few years for a handsome profit. That is, if you're not using it all up.

    Personally, I think it's not bad stuff. But I doubt it would become an essential part of my wardrobe.

    Ordered it from Nordstrom's tonight. We'll see if it actually arrives as it sounds as though certain supplies are selling out. All the enthusiasm meant a blind buy.

    Cheers,

    Socal's Arcadia and Glendale Nordstrom are sold out of pure malt don't know if they will get more, that was quick. 5 days all gone. When I checked they had 6 each...

    I'm interested to grab one before it's all gone. FragranceNet sells it, will it be safe to get off FragranceNet or should I pay full retail price in store? Cheers.

    Cheers, remixx. Since the formula for release is the same I might just get the old batch from FragranceNet. Hopefully the quality is equally good and not inferior to new batch, fingers crossed.

    idk if its an old batch that they had in the stock room or something because they re-released it on the same date that nordstroms and thierry mugler website did. But anyways hopefully shipping is fast for you since you're in australia. Its already taking 8 days just to get here from NY to California! I hate UPS and FEDEX!

    I've yet to spray my bottle, im afraid to let a microliter of air in lol. I've been wearing my samples first ( the nordstrom lady gave me 2 filled samples the day i pre-bought it) to get a feel for it. I'm hoping for it to grow on me like A*Men did...it went kind of toxic on me today though, i just wasn't feeling it. It got extremely smokey after about 5 hours, something i've never smelled it do. Now its at a weird vanilla.

    i'm serious, it's not this mind blowing fragrance everyone makes it out to be. I won't deny it's great but the level of hype it gets is unwarranted. Try to sample it first. This is coming from one of the biggest A*Men fanboys of all time too

    mine did not, and it looks like it may have been used, the rubber flask had some bumps on it like it had been handled, though it could've come from moving it around a lot. I'm pretty sure it's legit though because I put the code on the inside of the box into the TM website and it was all good.

    My box from fragrancenet did not include plastic wrap and was actually quite scratched up. The bottle looked like it had been removed from the box and jossled around itself. The bottle looked like it was scratched and had been out of the box for some time. Very odd as this is the only time i have ever experienced this from them. The juice however was 100% authentic, so I guess I could care less.

    Yeah, it seems authentic, but like it was taken out and used. Here's a picture of the bottle I received after two sprays by me:

    Looks like it's ~95-98% full. Oh well. Still good stuff, very, very interesting.

    I haven't gotten that much out of it yet but I didn't really properly apply it, and I also went to the gym in between. It's certainly potent, not sure it's at the level of A*Men. I'd be more interested to know what condition your bottle from fragrance net is, whether the box is plastic wrapped and if the bottle is 100% full.

    I ordered 5 from fragrancenet and got them today they are all wrapped. A couple of months ago I ordered a few from fragrancenet and they were opened but appeared unused. I complained but since the price was good I didn't want a refund.
