Still deciding or neutral
Money would have been better spent on another fragrance

sequoia, patchouli, coffee and vanilla bourbon sound really goooood!!
I hope then you can get these notes.
my current top five (always in transition)
Dior Eau Noire
HdP 1725 Casanova
eau de gloire parfum d'empire
Dia man Amouage
comme des garçons man 2
Pure Shot, seriously?
Can't wait to buy this blindly LoL..
I'm imagining small lead pellets
YSL Body Kouros (3.3oz w/ box) * Jean Paul Gaultier Le Male (2.5oz w/ can) * L'Instant de Guerlain EDT (4.2oz w/ box) (all bottles 90%+)
Looking For (not limited to)
YSL Live Jazz * Chanel Egoiste
Sounds ok. Probably never see it down here but sounds ok.
why is the name pure shot????
Because of pepper and mint, i suppose.
The o/i typo is one of the most common typos on a QWERTY keyboard. I'm amazed that even Mugler fell prey to it, but am pleasantly surprised with his original intent of truth in advertising.
Iris Pallida 50ml
Ungaro I 75ml
and more! - http://www.basenotes.net/threads/301...n-Man-and-more
Looks interesting. I can imagine a minty/fruity opening with a woodier gourmand dry down.
A * Men Pure Shot is created by perfumer Jacques Huclier. Fragrance is a woody, fresh and spicy
The top notes are icy mint and juniper berry, very cool. The heart notes are white pepper and cardamom, which is like an adrenaline rush for the senses. The background is a sequoia explosion and patchouli.

I like the change of pace for this fragrance. Though the others are already on par, I'm much looking forward to this.

Am I the only one who feels mildly disappointed?

I can see the threads now...
^^I'm already sweating a little bit.
Will probably not see this on our side of the fence, but love the concept
I heard there is another one at fall. Maybe the Patchouli Coffee Vanilla ?
Is this going to be a limited edition?
Now this I can get excited about
Ok, so having seen this thread, I popped in for a chat with my contact at Selfridges, and she confirmed that the notes (stated above) are correct:
Top notes: icy mint and juniper berry.
The heart notes: white pepper and cardamom.
The basenotes: sequoia and patchouli.
She confirmed that this is set for a relesase at the end of May in the UK.
Also on the radar for this year:
A Men Gold Edition - July 2012
Fragrances of Leather Collection - October 2012 - This has me particularly intrigued!!
Duke, either Pure Shot or the Gold edition is meant as a limited edition, and the other a permanent addition. My contact is at a conference tomorrow where she'll find out more info.
Will let you guys know as soon as i hear more.
Can't help but expect some sort of better clone of Hugo Just Different, due to the mintyness. I'll probably be sampling this one, though, as long as it's not a total bomb of sweetness. Can't really deal with those scents
This might be the only a*men flanker I look forward to try.
Hope vanilla is way in the background and juniper & mint way front.
I think I remember a few days ago someone made a joke about an A*Men Pure Sport...
Joke's on you now!
SEEKING BOTTLES OF:
Aramis New West (preferably old bottle)
Patrick by Fragrances of Ireland
Gloria by Cacharel
PM me if you have bottles that you're willing to sell or trade!
And again I must have this one just because the bottle looks awesome. Damn you, Mugler!!!
Tbh I can't wait to try this
Will sample when I see this for sure!!! Thanks for the info!!!
Sounds awesome and I don't even care for mint that much. I still wish they would release them all in a set of .5-1oz bottles.
Cant wait to try this one, notes sound promising and a*men and its flankers are always unique. I hope this isnt another limted edition, if so then i gotta get it right away !
Oh, I am excited now. I wasn't as excited with the idea of mint, but seeing what else is in it has mademy hopes higher.
I actually thought this was a joke thread until post #13.
Seeking: Bottles/decants : of Alain Delon Iquitos, Feeling Man, Gucci pour Homme, Essence of John Galliano, Opium pour Homme, Oxford & Cambridge, Azzaro pour Homme (vintage), Concentré D'Orange Verte...etc.
Seeking decant/sample of Jil Sander Feeling Man, Comme des Garcons 2 Man, Giorgio VIP, ....etc. I have samples to swap.
Please PM me !
Sounds interesting. Looks like this will be snagged up also.
Pure Shot... I guess named for the one gun shot to your head you want to get after you realize you missed out on the 5 minutes of online sale for the limited release because their website crashed during it and after you got sent an email confirmation on an order before it did crash but then get sent another cancelling it.
As an indication of how synthetic smelling it is they used a sprinter with prosthetic legs since they couldn't find a model with a prosthetic nose.
On a less comedic note, which would be what Mugler builds their next flanker scent around and would be called Pure Comedy.... ok I'm really done this time I promise. I like the way the bottle looks but I've never been a fan of minty and 'cool' frags so probably will only give this a sniff but doubt I will wind up liking it.
If there is the one with black bottle/black star that comes out feature coffee absolute and vanilla bourbon that sounds like something I could like. As well as the leather collection... bottle would be brown bottle/brown star? Those two sound good....
I was quite disgusted by A*Men Taste of Fragrance...
And this seems like A*Men Pure Sport.
I'm a fan of all the pure line , so i am assured i won't be disappointed with this one .
Can't wait to try it , then buy it ( eventually! ) ....
Hypocrites will always be a thorn in my back....and my middle finger will always be the best remedy.....
I love the notes, love, love, love them, but they could very easily become a terrible Frankenstein's monster. Very interested in the outcome.
A*Men Gold edition sounds like it's going to be just a golden bottle and nothing more, IMO.
Still waiting for the Pure Tar In Midsummer edition...
Kurt smells like Teen Spirit
I'm certainly interested but hope it's significantly less sweet and gourmand'ish then previous A*Men.
Hey, I think A*Men P*re Sh*t is coming in the fall and, obviously, will feature a strong civet note.
Im so cool. I come here to make fun of A*Men fragrances.
lol i know right. Im wondering if its a white rubber flask like ive read, but by those pic it kinda looks like a white metal flask.
If that was directed my way, jamwires, I was just playing around. I'm a fan of most of the A*Men flankers and have most of them. Didn't mean to hurt anyone's feelings.
^ well Im crying already, it's too late!
This actually sounds pretty promising; I'm rather looking forward to it. And I had no idea their model was Oscar Pistorius! When viewing their website I thought they just used CGI to paste artificial robotic limbs onto a model, and had no idea he actually was an athlete with prosthetics. That's really cool!
lol you guys crack me up
