    i think the drydown of new haarlem is much better than pure malt
    not a big fan of the ultra sweet burnt sugar feel of the opening though. I still like it, but I look forward to the drydown more.

    Pure malt is also very nice but I think new haarlem is more unique

    I like Pure Malt for its invigorating opening and the typical A*men dry down. I love New Haarlem for what it is, a dark, rich, syrupy sweet monster. I have to say New Haarlem, but not without regret at leaving Pure Malt in a close, yet distant second place.

    New Haarlem all the way.

    I'll go for the versatility of chicken whilst acknowledging beefs superior drydown.

    Pure Malt has one of the best openings for a fragrance. However, New Haarlem has a superior drydown. Since the drydown lasts way longer it should be an obvious choice. It is for me.

    New Haarlem in Winter, Pure Malt every other part of the year. But I'd take Chicken over both of them.

    Just do both, you know, chicken on warmer months and beef for cooler. For spring and fall I suggest layering them.

    I haven't tried Pure Malt, but New Haarlem's opening was way too much for me. Bond No. 9's I Love NY For All's opening has much more dark, java-espresso vibe, yet a more toned-down version of New Haarlem. I wore it to work the other night, and when I got home six hours later, I could've sworn I was smelling New Haarlem on my wrists. I Love NY For All is a delicious alternative, and it's much cheaper.

    Pure Malt is cool, New Haarlem is warm.

    Take your pick - a cool alcohol breeze over a warm base, or roasty coffee with a steam-iron warm note.

    Posting Pure Malt in your thread title is sure to garner more responses, so I would pick that.
