    2. I would like a fresh mint flanker "Pure Menthe", but I fear this won't happen. I think it's a done deal, in the works: Pure Oudh
    Ice*Men comes close to a 'fresh' A*Men flanker.

    It's a toss up between Pure Coffee and Pure Malt, however I think I would ultimately choose Pure Coffee. Luckily I own full bottles of all 4 fragrances, so I never have to choose.

    Pure Malt. But: I haven't tried Pure Coffee yet and have a sample coming. It sounds up my alley.

    ICE*MEN is my favorite but from the list I guess the original is best.

    Never smelled Pure Coffee but is it similar to New Haarlem?

    Not really, no. Pure Coffee is sort of acrid and bitter at the top (but still very sweet), and dries down to a slightly more subtle A*Men base with a lot more chocolate. New Haarlem resembles Rochas Man but much deeper, richer, and more complex.

    Would Thierry Mugler be willing to send out free samples of Pure Coffee by mail?

    No. It's long been discontinued and they don't have any plans in bringing it back. They don't have any more samples of Pure Coffee or Pure Malt. You can order a decant of Pure Coffee from The Perfumed Court.

    Summing up the poll:

    Pure Coffee < Original < Pure Havane <<<<< Pure Malt

    This statistic holds unless more people vote

    Well as you can see by my revised list I would now change to Pure Coffee as my favorite. And I agree with the other comments about it not being much like New Haarlem. Pure Coffee to me smells like actual coffee beans whereas the coffee in NH is subtle compared to the carmel/patchouli/bakery vibe.

    I vote for Pure Malt, it was pure love at first sniff. Followed close by the Original A*men.
    I think Ice man wasn't bad (I love patchouli) and the summer essence no way. Never tried Pure coffee and Pure Havane I'ts growing on me.
    Can't wait for the new w/ hot sauce.

    Sounds bizarre but I think it will be great. Apparently the spice will bring out the coffee note more so and since I missed out on Pure Coffee ... I am all about that idea. Count me in

    So much love for Pure Malt but it was way too boozy for me. Had to sell it.

    I wore Pure Havane yesterday and enjoyed every second of it. Three sprays and I was good all day, four may have been perfect, though. My wife smelled me eight hours later and she complimented me on it. It's a great one, and may be one of my Top 10 in my collection right now. Great in Summer, and may be better this Fall and Winter! Glad I have a big 'ol bottle.

    It's easily the very best Mugler I've smelled. No regrets.

    Pure Havane. For me the most versatile and pleasant.

    Pure Malt. Though Pure Havane is quite enjoyable when riding my motorcycle around at night. The booziness of Pure Malt though...... salivating.

    I like Pure Malt the best. I own Pure Havane though because I missed the PM train...
    PH doesn't have the wow! factor of PM but it's well rounded and thoroughly enjoyable. It's beautiful but not as attention grabbing and is wearable on more occasions.
    I still want PM though
    Original A*Men smells rich and chocolatey from afar but up close it smells dirty to me.
    Time to musk up.

    Pure Malt and Pure Havane are my favorites though Pure Malt slightly edges out Pure Havane.

    I ought to try Pure Coffee, im most unfortunate not to find samples of it with the exception of it being sold on online websites which i'm completely against.

    Angel is a phenomenal fragrance, one of the best things I've ever smelled on my girlfriend (she wears the body cream), but I don't love any of the men's versions.
