    How I rate Pure Havane:

    Longevity: 6 - 8 hours on the skin, rather spotty (7/10)
    Projection: 2-3 hour scent cloud, then stays very close to the skin (7/10)
    Versatility: Good, casual any occasion fragrance, all season although lighter on the trigger during the summer (10/10)
    Overall Smell: Good, but lacks the wow factor IMO, dry down has similarity to a couple other vanilla fragrances (8/10)

    Overall Score: 8/10

    Original is my least favorite.

    1. A*men - heavenly chocolate milkshake from top, sweet patchouli on base
    2. Pure Malt - boozy top notes, harsh synthetic middle notes, caramel and patchouli on base
    3. Pure Havane - bit feminine honeyed cherries on top, vanilla and patchouli on base

    Have not tried Pure Coffee yet.
    Current TOP 7 from my collection:

    1. Gucci Pour Homme II
    2. Chanel Coromandel
    3. L'Instant de Guerlain Pour Homme Extreme
    4. Encre Noire
    5. Dior Homme Intense
    6. Timbuktu
    7. Dior Homme

    I have yet to try Pure Havanae, but of the other three, I prefer Pure Malt. That said, it's a pretty tightly bunched group. Don't really love Pure Malt, nor do I dislike the others.

    Love Pure Malt and Pure Coffee. Tried Havane twice and all I get is honey... Maybe I should give it a full wear to see how it develops, but I don't like the opening... Original is OK to me.

    I see Pure Malt and A*Men as #1 and 1a! Love both!

    1. Pure Malt + Pure Havane (I've decided that I love them equally, but I voted for Malt)
    2. Pure Coffee (Smells like A*Men without the tar note, which makes me happy)
    3. A*Men (Has the greatest longevity and sillage by far but is too much sometimes)

    Top 5:
    1. Axe Kilo
    2. Lectric Shave
    3. Vicks Vapor Rub
    4. Febreze Pour Homme
    5. Preferred Stock

    You got that right. Original is king - the others are imitators.

    Pure Havane is as good as it gets from Thierry Mugler IMO.

    I like them all but if I had to choose one... Pure Havane. I'd cry as I told the others they'd become orphans.
