    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.

    Google translation:

    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.

    Maybe. As a designer fragrance, Thierry Mugler is doing a great job with their creativity. All of their scents are unique and great in my opinion. Not like YSL releasing a million L'Homme flankers that smell similar. This Pure Shot one sounds real good as well. Can't wait!

    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

    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 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.

    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!
