Thread: Pure Malt
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.
TOP 3 hot weather:
1. Gucci Pour Homme II
2. Creed Millesime Imperial
3. Lalique Encre Noire
TOP 3 cold weather:
1. L'Instant de Guerlain Pour Homme Extreme
2. Dior Homme
3. Eau Des Baux
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.
I got my bottle today! Nice box
:O i bought the last bottle of pure malt that they had at the bay store here in brampton, ontario, canada for $80 cdn and i got l`eau d`issy for 30% off
and A TON OF SAMPLES
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.
Pure Malt just blows my mind. Im so glad that i bought two bottles. I cant wait to actually wear it places.
Had a sample about 8 months ago, just ordered a bottle from fragrance.net, have wanted this since i first smelled the sample.
Cant wait ^_^
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.
for all reading:
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
anyone else's bottle from fragrancenet not come with plastic wrap on the box?
Needless to say i will be buying my backup bottle from nordstoms
Looks like it's ~95-98% full. Oh well. Still good stuff, very, very interesting.
if any of my bottles are unwrapped im going to file a complaint on paypal -_-. I ordered 4 of them!
hmmm, im scared now. i should get my pure malt from fragrancenet this week.....any longevity issues? it should be 10+ hours.
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.
