    1) Among these, my absolute favorite is Pure Havane
    2) I still have no clue which next A*Men should yet be released in future, the possibilities are limitless

    Pure Havane is far away the best of all.

    I expect something as good as the previous. Maybe another masculine pleasure (we already get coffee, alcohool and cigar). WHo knows, maybe barbecue, lol

    I love both the Pure Havane and Pure Coffee. PH is more versatile and something I can wear quite a bit. PC is less versatile but just as good in my opinion.

    The original A*Men and Pure Malt carry too much of that signature accord from the line. It's too intense and gives me headaches. In those other two flankers it's toned down and I can enjoy the scent without adverse effects.

    Coffee. (And apparently I'm alone, so far.) Havane would be my next choice. Malt is too sweet, and the original is a disaster.

    No idea what they should do next, but I'd like to see some tweaking of the base. I know that honeyed-creamy-patchouli thing is what ties them all together, but I'm getting a little tired of it.

    I prefer Pure Malt since it's everything I like about the original and nothing I hate with an added boozy accord which is quite nice.

    I voted for Pure Malt

    On a side note: I was talking to an SA this past weekend, & she said to watch out for an August release of all the Mugler's with cooking spices.
    For instance, A*Men will be mixed in with a hot pepper paste

    Has anyone seen Pure Malt being sold at a department store or any kind of store recently? I want to purchase a bottle of Pure Malt since i don't own a bottle of it yet. I'm trying to avoid making online purchases.

    Default Re: What is your favorite a*men: Original a*men, pure coffee, pure malt, or pure havane?

    I prefer Pure Havane very slightly to Pure Malt, however, I love them both. Pure Coffee is a good fragrance, but, not on the level of the other two in my opinion. A*men the original is definitely not for me, I just don’t like it.

    I have been thinking what I would like to see for the next flanker. I think it would be awesome to do a double release; Pure Chocolate Dark and Pure Chocolate White. White being a light sweet day time wear type fragrance, maybe with some floral notes and Dark being a night type fragrance, possibly using Oud notes. The Chocolate Dark bottle would be dark brown with a black star and the Chocolate White would be a white bottle with a silver star. I think the dual release would be an interesting and fresh twist.

    I looked high and low for a couple weeks just recently. Unfortunately, it appears to be completely out in department stores. I even had a couple of the larger stores check their computers nation wide. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news…

    I'm very compelled to simply cut my losses and settle with just Pure Havane (and Original A*MEN too though i don't like it as much). I guess i will never come across a bottle of Pure Malt in the stores ever :/ I hope Thierry Mugler produces another A*MEN Pure that will ultimately kick Pure Malt's Butt!! That will bring some satisfaction to my losses.

    Here is a possible inspiration for pure menthe:

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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 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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.
