    Default A*Men - A quick poll on where BN'ers stand right now

    I'm not trying to turn this into a war about A*Men. I'm actually curious to see where all of us stand right now on this controversial fragrance, so I'm simply doing a poll here (I did a Google search and couldn't find a poll like this). Everyone seems to have an opinion on it, and opinions often change about it, like mine did.

    MY VOTE: Love it. One of my all time faves.

    Any fragrance that should not be worn in public, should be worn in public.

    Put me in the "like" group. It's one that I have to be in the mood for, and frankly it's a bit too "young" for me. But when the mood hits, it's really enjoyable to wear.

    I have a bottle and for some reason, call me strange I find it very melancholic. Off putting due to the middle, but the dry down is quite pleasant.

    I like it but I don't have enough occasions to wear it so I dont have bottle yet.

    Damn, the results are so evenly matched. I'm torn between liking it and loving it. I went with liking. I think it's just too much to love. Too much of a beast for me, not versatile enough. More of a once in a while scent, but a joy to wear in that event. Not something I can wear more than about 10 times a year.

    I really like it (not love it), but I've never had the balls to wear it outside the house. Maybe now that SH winter is on the way...

    I also agree with the 2 spray minimum. Maybe one. Also give it an hour before inflicting it on other people.

    I'm surprised how many people fall within options 2, 3 an 4 - like, indifferent and don't like it.

    I thought we'd see just about everyone either loving it or hating it. Interesting poll.

    This is one of those fragrances I'm surprised to find well liked by some people I consider having similar tastes with me.

    Plainly neutral - it might be a good scent, yet some of its notes simply don't "click together" with my skin chemistry

    I like it, but don't wear it that often. I actually prefer Blue Sugar over AMen myself. (Same vibe, but without the harsh opening & overly strong patchouli in the base).

    I enjoy the first 15 mins but can't stand the rest of it. Count me under 'DISLIKE'. 'Hate' is simply not in my vocabulary.

    Its sweet, with prominent patchouli so I should be a fan, but whatever it is that causes that 'tar' smell makes it unwearable for me. So, I went for option 4.

    Default Re: A*Men - A quick poll on where BN'ers stand right now

    Think I like it. Not my favourite but interesting. Do own a bottle still, even though I did consider selling it. Never worn it much yet though, so I'm not in a position to judge its renowned "panty dropper" powers

    Edit - Just sprayed some to remind myself and, actually, not so sure that I like it. It's an odd one. It's one of two fragrances I own where I'm on the fence, the other being Hanae Mori.

    It's compelling and well done but my blood runs too warm for it. It's better than any of the flankers and most of the niches of the same basic kind. Not that it matters, but it should have been marketed to women.

    I don't like to smell A*Men on men, but I do like the rich but less radiant Angel body cream on my girlfriend.

    But as always, it's all about what you like.

    It's ok, but I like options from the Pure series better, so it's hard for me to be too enthused about it.

    At first hated it, but gave it another chance and now I love it! The drydown is amazing, heck I even got use to the top and middle notes. The easier you go on the trigger, the better it smells. Longevity beast and quite unique!
