    Default Pure Malt Re-Release?

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dzr4xpnMXx4

    I feel sorry for those people who stocked up. Now their bottles aren't worth any more than they paid. I feel even more sorry for people who paid >$70 for it.

    That's only if it's true that they will re-release.

    Just an FYI thanks to Tim so nobody gets ripped off on ebay or other sites by paying $80 or more for it.

    I hope it gets re-released. But since with summer coming up and this being a fall/winter frag I have a feeling my bottle is gonna last a few years for me

    Hey hey, that dude is Tim, he's a great reviewer.

    He was saying PM will be re-re-released according to some other person who supposedly got an email from TM Customer Service. He even forwarded the email to Tim (although, it could be fake?)

    Or maybe the Rep that emailed me is 1) misinformed or 2) it will be re-released but she doesn't like me and just saying it won't be re-released because I've been bugging her about sending me a sample of Pure Malt.

    Hey-hey...no offense to Tim, but he is, after all, a you-tube-home-bedroom-webcam-reviewer...

    I just find it funny that anytime someone here mentions something about speculating that possibly maybe sometime soon something might likely be discontinued....I head straight to ebay and contemplate buying a backup before any of you guys snap them all up....

    But then again maybe I should snap up any Dreamers I can get my hands on...Tim could indeed have the inside scoop, and isn't Thierry Mugler himself another youtube fragrance correspondent? I shouldn't have backed up all those Malt's. Hopefully they will age well

    no regrets at all...even if they are re-released, I bought them at regular retail, and I will use em up. I love that stuff...

    Whats funny is, does anyone remember those 1980's dolls called Cabbage Patch kids? My sister had loads of them, and Pure Malt reminds me of the plastic smell on those dolls...extremely random association, I know.

    I actually contacted customer service at TM and they indeed told me the same. Pure Malt will not be re-released this year or any time in the near future. It's such a shame too, this fragrance is so amazing! I feel bad for all those guys who held off on it and never got there hands on it just to find out that it's pretty much sold out everywhere! I know of some people who bought that stuff by the dozens just to resell it and make a profit, in a way it's cruel to those who didn't get the chance to buy it, but hey, I guess that's business.

    Yeah, emails are so limited. I've found that they're at there best when you call them. Thierry Mugler is also one of my favs so I too am very disappointed to hear how they replied to you. If they continue this rude customer service, I'm sure they'll eventually lose most of their customers.

    I have had only good customer service from Melisa as well. My guess is that they are indeed overwhelmed or have just very recently changed the free sample policy. There have been several Youtube videos in the past month or so on the subject of getting free samples from TM customer service and at least one video posted the direct email address to request them. The videos have gotten around 1000 views so I can only imagine they are swamped with requests and might actually be out of stock. I would wait a while and then maybe try again.

    The new summer edition is A*Men Sunessence. There is a thread about it here on Basenotes. Right now it is only being sold at Nordstrom's. It looks like the Ice Men bottle but people who tried it said it is a lot different.

    Default Re: Pure Malt Re-Release?

    My guess is that it'll be a Pure Malt variation the way Sunessence is a variation of Ice Men which is a variation of Summer Flash. See a pattern? That would explain why customer service is saying it is not (technically) coming back. It's a tricky way of having a release remain a limited edition, just bring it out again with a different name or minor variation. TM knows what a hit Pure Malt was, they're not going to miss capitalizing on it.

    I agree. I never picked up a full bottle of PM(TV was my go to winter scent), but am counting on a similar good scent for the fall.
    I post lots from my I phone so if this looks like a text message that's why ( :

    No not at all. Sunessence is like a watered down version of Angel for men. It takes out the tar notes and leaves the mint and chocolate notes. It is not very good IMO, It lacks, smells like a bottle of Angel for men that has gone bad from being left in the heat. The only thing Sunessence and Ice man have in common is the bottle is the same as the IceMan, It is more on par with Angel for men. As for pure malt I spoke with a sales person at the Thierry Mugler Counter at the Bay downtown Toronto, and it is getting re-released this fall 2010. No one is saying it's a variation, but that it's the original pure malt. I have never heard anything on a variation. I don't think that would be a smart move seeing PM was so succesful and to take a chance on a varition that could flop wouldn't be good. They usually do varition on the staple house colognes, like Angel, but not a variation on a limited editon. Don't like the colour though, yellow? not very appealing to the eye in IMO. But the only angel bottle I liked was the chrome star case you buy as an extra to replace the rubber one. The IceMan bottles are nothing special either IMO.

    Regardless if it's re-released or not, I don't think it's necessarily a negative thing for people purchasing it at a higher price now. The difference is, people who pay a bit more get to enjoy this fragrance now, while others may be waiting to save a few bucks.

    I've spent thousands on computer upgrades that decrease in value rapidly over time, but at the time I had it, it was the best.

    Personally i find Pure Malt over rated but the more i sample it, the more and more i love it

    if its like A*Men's 3.4oz i'd have to drop $80 on it (hence my signature)

    +1 I got the same email a few days ago.

    That being said, I finally sampled this yesterday and after all the hype I found myself disappointed. It smelled like the middle of the road between Sunessence and A Men.

    I'm glad I didn't dish out the big money on this, and now that I've smelled it, I don't even think I'll pick it up this fall.
