    Yes, it's a strange taste, but on certain days, a little of those conflicting flavors is cool. And right, I know it'll be done without vinegar lol, and the hot pepper notes will probably be texturally dry and well done. But I can already imagine this one won't be for me. Most of that response was hyperbole

    A*Men Tabasco will probably be one of the ones that I don't like (Ice*Men, B*Men, Sunessence), as I've always HATED chili or cumin notes in fragrances. Something goes wrong with my skin chemistry and it comes off as BO or Indian food. Yuck!

    Let's give A*MEN chilli a chance, who knows maybe it might be huge seller.

    The chili note in bond saks for him is quite interesting. Though that is more of an incense fragrance, I'm interested to see how they utilize it here with he amen formula. Hopefully its not some very faint note that's hard to detect, which is my only gripe about PH in that the tobacco wasn't as prominent as I'd hoped for, despite it still being a very nice fragrance. The box sure looks interesting, there are pics in the comment section of grants article on the bn homepage.

    We're down to the dregs, boys. Get 'em while you can.

    As for the chili version - I know that Tabasco Slim Jims and Tabasco Kikkoman soy sauce are extremely awesome. If you think about it, it's just a different version of pepper in fragrance. Potentially cool. They clearly got this past the initial tests, so it must work at least reasonably well.

    I just passed through London Heathrow Terminal 5 and the shop there had lots of bottles of Pure Havane.

    UPDATE: I checked the Neiman Marcus website, Pure Havane is back in stock. Bloomingdales still carries Pure Havane as well.

    Don't panic, if you really want it call the Macy's at Warwick RI. They have a lot. Free shipping too since the order will be 87 straight. This of course is for us US'ers.

    mmm i was planning on buying this one soon , i think I've got to hurry ... i like the tobacco note in this one , i wish it had that tobacco note in the dry down 2 because all i can smell in the dry down is vanilla!

    Not much tobacco for me either. It doesn't smell bad, it's quite good indeed, but i was looking for some tobacco and couldn't find it. And it's too sweet for my tastes too.

    Actually it was supossed to arrive in Spain this month, but it is not available everywhere. You can find it at any 'Julia' perfume-shop. In fact 'Julia' is an Andorran Company supplied from there where perfumes arrive earlier in their release. Even ocasionally they have very interesting discounts so you can find it for 50 euros. Good luck!!!

    I finally found it in Barajas Airport. I liked it very much, and now I am waiting for cold weather for a full wearing.

    Congratulations!!!!

    Yes, probably easy to find at dutyfree shops at airports. Everything is posible, even production stopped before arriving here (Spain)at regular shops, so it is not bad idea to take a look at 'Julia' if someone wants to find it easily available or any backup bottle.

    Regards!

    I actually bought a bottle at the Barajas "duty free" as early as May (!).
    In Heathrow, I saw it on discount in April, but I passed up the chance (stupid, stupid).
    I find it the best of the A*Men flankers, it's delicious and not cloying as Pure Malt can be during the top notes. I love the cherry notes.

    early indeed!
    I have flown many times during this year but no idea it can be found at Spanish Airport dutyfree shops...

    Many A*Men flankers fans awaiting for it at regular shops yet!!!!...

    I always look for such things in duty frees, as I know the Spanish high street is totally disappointing when it comes to new releases, flankers, etc. I feel that we are pretty left behind in regards to perfumery. Even El Corte Inglés, which should be the better stocked shop, is laughable at least. Not to mention the prices there once the release gets there. Whenever I ask an SA, she doesn't have a clue what I'm talking about (one Guerlain SA even almost laughed in my face when I asked her if they had Bois d'Arménie... "that one is not a Guerlain", she insisted, LOL).

    I smile myself while reading your quoted post in so far as I have suffered 'El Corte Inglés' Guerlain SAs when asking for something so supossed very well known as 'Nahema'. They also ignore what a 'Habit de Fète' is... LOL x 2!!!!
    Recently I asked for Pure Havane at ECI Clarins SA and she knew nothing about this release, but ... she also ignored entirely previous A*Men flankers and was thinking I was kidding her...

    I agree every letter at your post!!!

    regards!
