Thread: A*Men Urban?

    Default A*Men Urban?

    I was browsing Ebay looking for a cheap bottle of Pure Shot, when I came across this.

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Angel-A-Men-...3D271408791538

    Can't find much info on it, dunno if it's legit. Looks like it may just me a limited edition box or something. Anyone know anything about this?

    First time I've seen it. Looks like it could be special limited edition packaging of the original stuff. Strange that there's virtually no info about this. If I were considering this I would probably be a little hesitant until I had more info to be sure it was legit.

    Never heard of this but wouldn't be surprised if its legit given A*men's unending 'limited editions'.

    Email the seller and inquire about it. The seller seems to have sold a massive amount of fragrances / items and has a good record. Ask the question and ease your mind.

    Maybe, just maybe, someone got their hands on flanker that is yet to be announced or released. Just a theory.

    I emailed the seller, waiting on a reply.. may not get one until Monday if they operate with normal business day hours. Looking forward to finding some info on it.

    This seller has a lot of them available, too ... interesting. I'm curious what he has to say bout it.

    Very interesting. My guess would be some selected marketing/packaging. A*Men - for the eccentric New York hip hop artist.

    Alright, they emailed me back with this.

    "Agent, Apr 12 20:29

    This is a newly launched item that we received almost 2 weeks ago. We do not have the notes since there is practically no information available. We not sure if it is the same as the original Angel because the color of the fragrance is different. The image is the exact item since we personally photographed one of them. Th packaging states it is a limited edition. I'm sorry that we do not have any more information."

    You should try contacting Mugler directly... I'm sure they'll have all the answers you need.

    It's got to be regular A*Men in limited edition packaging. Hard to believe that Mugler could launch a new scent without Basenotes knowing, and then even more strange that the first place it shows up is on eBay.

    Default Re: A*Men Urban?

    My guess is it's an upcoming release that someone got their hands on early. There is at least one other seller on Ebay selling these now.

    Alright, who wants to call Mugler and get this straightened out?

    btw, I'm glad they didn't call this "Pure Urban"

    Agree!

    Ok so I called Mugler customer service and asked them about this, and here's what they told me:

    * It's a legitimate product released only for the international market. It is not available in the US, nor do they have plans at this time to release it in the US.

    * I asked her when it originally hit the market and she wouldn't tell me. She didn't have any information on notes, what it smells like, etc.

    * She said it sounds like the Ebay sellers have imported legitimate bottles from "overseas." She advised me against purchasing from Ebay because this product is not authorized for sale in the US. (I guess Americans aren't worthy of this release, and thus we should never have the opportunity to get our hands on this)

    * I asked her if it was possible that this could be released in the US in the foreseeable future and she said "probably not."

    So there you go. Someone should blind buy this and give us a review. Or if one of our international members can call Mugler Europe, maybe they can get some more information like note breakdown, etc.

    I'm almost tempted to blind buy it, but I got burned when doing that with Sunessence and Pure Shot. I'd at least like to see the note breakdown first.

    I might consider buying it. I would rather that the seller had a fixed number available for purchase than saying they have more than a certain number which usually means they have to secure it from somewhere else or other vendor before they ship it. Have to ponder this one a bit more.

    They have 79 available. If you put an item in your cart, then change your quantity to 1000, it automatically changes your quantity to the max number that the seller has available.

    I'm just surprised no one on this board has ever heard of it until now. Must be a very, very limited release.

    Default Re: A*Men Urban?

    If I had to guess.. it's probably just A*Men, with a different box and slightly different color juice, or tint on the star to make it look darker.

    I remember back in 2010, they did a "flanker" it was just the same as A*Men, with another name. there was a little talk about it somewhere, I can't remember if here or Fragrantica, it ended up being the same as the original. It was called A*Men Bracelet de Force I think. There was no press release about it, it just kind of fell out of the sky out of no where; then a couple people tried it and realized they just wasted their money on a limited edition copy of A*Men.

    Mugler USA's short response to my email:

    Hi Del,
    This is not a product that is available in the US market so I don’t have any information on this.

    Your Dedicated Celestial Concierge,
    Elizabeth
    So, it could be just A*Men in different packaging, as The_Cologneist mentioned above. Or could be something else, who knows.

    Question Re: A*Men Urban?

    Anyone willing to blind buy and give us a review?

    Alternatively, are any of our European members willing to call Mugler International and get details on this release?

    If I didn't just get a brand new bottle of A*Men, I would blind buy this just to see what it is, but I don't think I will do it unless it is something new.

    That's... bizarre! I'd wonder if it pre-dates the Pure series, but the OP said he heard back from the seller saying it was brand new. So strange.

    Maybe it's a Keith Urban celebrity A*Men flanker!!!

    ...yeah, I know. Ouch.

    it's also 100 ml / 3,4 oz just like other flankers. I really don't know if it could be just the regular juice in a different package or a completely new flanker. To me it's incredible fragranceX has it all of a sudden. It's as if the market is suddenly being saturated with the stuff and nobody knows a thing.

    Can one of our European or international members PLEASE call Mugler International and find out about this release?? Some of us are dying to know. I called Mugler USA and got diddly squat out of them.

    My guess is they have an undisclosed amount of leftover B men refillable metal flasks they needed to use up.

    Im unsure about the AMen cologne however counterfeiters have used this tactic before

    Such as Sean John Unforgiveable Recharge is not a real product, its a counterfeit that stuck the word "Recharge" Under EDT on the box,
