    Default Smelled AMen Taste of Fragrance Today

    Hey guys,

    Was at Bloomingdales and gave this a go. I don't have AMen and I rarely use Pure Havane so my comparisons to them are based on memory. That said, to me, it was AMen with a hint of hot peppers/fresh peppers/almost sweet peppers that hit a high note, so to speak, when sniffing. You sniff, its starts out AMen and then at the "top" of the sniffing process, you get hit with the pepper note. Dries down to what I remember Pure Havane smelling like.

    Any thoughts on this one?

    To me it smells like tobacco/whiskey and a bit of bitter cherry.And pepper.

    I don't think this one smells anything like the original A*Men personally. It smells more similar to Pure Havane but with a LOT of chili pepper. I like it and I bought a bottle myself.

    I could understand that. I liked it better than my memory of AMen.

    There was a recent thread on this with a lot of opinions, but while we're at it again, I'm a fan. Coffee, chocolate and chili pepper.

    I would say this is the best A*Men for someone who despises A*Men but wants to use it.

    I bought it the first day I tried it and wore it today in fact. Love the very apparent pepper note. It seems that in previous threads there was not a lot of love for this one. For me this is the first Mugler scent that I really like and this is my first purchase from the house.

    I tested it once. I have Pure Coffee at home so I think I don't need to own this Amen, because the drydowns of two are really similar to eachother.

    I like it, but I'm not paying $90 for a bottle of it. It's another toned down version of A*men *yawn*.

    When I sampled this I was shocked.....A very nice smell.....I wasn't sure about this, I thought that this could be a possible trainwreck when I first read the notes!!!

    Didn't much care for this one; it's about tied with Pure Coffee as my least favorite of these flankers.

    Got around to sampling this one. The pepper is too vegetal and in combination with the others notes it soon became nauseating, like allowing a child to create something novel in the kitchen.

    This one really grew on me. I thought it was just ok for awhile. Then I found myself taking out my sample decant and smelling it over and over. I finally pulled the trigger and bought bottle last week from the TM site. I knew I would have regretted not buying it if it was discontinued.
