    Default Pure Shot: Worthy of a Purchase?

    Hi BN!! I was at my local px yesterday and I just happened to see TM Pure Shot for $60 instead of $85-$90. Is it worth it to buy this at $60? I know that it was not received well but there was no tester and I need people who have tried it to let me know. Thanks!!

    There are other spring/summer scent that is better. However, collecting all of the Thierry mugler pure lines bottles might be a very good reason if you are collecting them...they look sick together.

    IMO yes and $20 less than I paid - very good price.

    I've been in a number of PXs all over the country in the last month or so and have never seen Pure Shot. Very lucky of you, but I'd still pass as even the original A*Men is much better.

    I've only tried it once in passing, and kinda liked it. I thought it was a nice aquatic patchouli smell, but I've heard longevity is an issue. I definitely would like to sample it more cuz I own Malt, Havane, and A*Men and am thinking of adding it to the collection not because of how it smells but mostly because the flask looks cool!

    At 60$ I might bite...?

    No, instead of it buy A*Men and you'll have one of the greatest colognes ever.

    I didn't really like Pure Shot last month when I sprayed a tester on my wrist; I also sprayed Chanel Allure Homme Sport Extreme-- and between the two of them, I ended up getting an sinus allergy thing that lasted a week. I don't know exactly what caused it, but it didn't make Pure Shot a fave at any rate.

    A few days ago I got an official Thierry Mugler Pure Shot sample in the mail-- I'd sent away for it via a TM offer. I wore it today and I'm wearing it now... I don't know, it's kind of growing on me. I wouldn't want to spend $90 on it, but $60 might be tempting. It's not an incredibly polished composition. It smells like it leans heavily on the new aromachemical "Patchwood"--I'd be surprised if it doesn't contain Patchwood.

    Nope, use that $60 on something better instead. I honestly wouldn't even buy this one if it showed up in TJ Maxx for $25.

    Like others have said, it might be worth it if you're a collector, but if all you want is the bottle just save yourself the trouble and see if you can fill up an empty one with a better, cheaper fragrance and save yourself a few $$$ lol

    Yes!!!! I can't believe this isn't getting the credit it deserves. The top isn't very good but the drydown more than makes up for it.

    I thought this was interesting, the second time I smelled it, but my wife hates it, and I've taken to calling it the "anti-dropper". I let her smell a blotter of the stuff, and it was almost her worst reaction *ever* to any fragrance!

    "Terrible! (grimace) Smells like cheap guy! (recoils in seat, shaking head) NO WAY!"

    The only thing that scares me is that story about the Mugler rep scooping up bottles. This could end up being another "Feu d'Issey", if it turns out to be more a case of a fragrance being ahead of its time, and people not "getting it" until it's gone. Remember - my wife *hates* Kouros, too. She tends to be a good indicator of a challenging frag, not a bad one per se.

    Interesting about the patchwood, Indie. What is your take on the isolated component? What's it like, to your nose?

    Thierry Mugler has one, and only one summer fragrance that was done well. It can be seen at the top of Tucansam's summer top 5 in the post above. Not groundbreaking, but that's the only summer fragrance from this house that works, from what I've smelled thus far anyway.

    I can spray a fourth of the bottle all over me and the scent, being uninteresting and hopelessly boring for starters, is completely gone within 3-4 hours. I will never understand the appeal of Pure Shot.

    If a bottle with a star on it is worth $60 then yes. If your actually going to use it as a fragrance then absolutely not!
    My current favorites:

    Bleu De Chanel, Creed Green Irish Tweed, Zino Davidoff, Dior Homme Intense, Creed Royal Oud, M7 (all versions), Chanel Egoiste, Dior Homme Sport, and Thierry Mugler Pure Malt.

    Patchwood is interesting stuff. It's kind of like what iso-e-super is to cedar, patchwood is to patchouli. It's got the woodiness of an iso-e-super type material, but with a very fresh, camphoraceous opening and a very earthy, moss nuance that's almost aquatic-- like the smell of a lake. Demeter did a fragrance called "Skating Pond"-- and that's exactly what Patchwood smells like. There's also a facet that smells like freshly dug up beets, with the soil still clinging to them-- and I get this in Pure Shot.

    I got a large bottle of Patchwood a few years ago as part of the Perfumer & Flavourist "Patchwood Challenge" competition. I ended up never actually submitting my entry, but the composition I came up with was kind of similar to a Kouros Cologne Sport/Kouros Eau D'Ete type of fragrance. The Patchwood was quite suited for handling a large part of the patchouli/moss/herbaceous notes. It was a nice bridge that allowed a smooth transition from the top to the the bottom. I really wish I'd have entered the contest to see how my composition would have fared, but in the end it came down to the fact that I wasn't sure exactly how to format my formula against their standards(I notate things my own way) and also I'm never quite satisfied that something couldn't be better.

    I ended up taking some of my Patchwood fragrance to work and letting a few people test it. One of my male coworkers loved it and wanted to buy some, but I never got around to making up another batch.

    I could be entirely wrong about Pure Shot containing Patchwood, but I'd probably bet my nose that it does.

    Thanks, Indie! Makes me wonder if this was part of the methodology behind various novel takes on patchouli that we've seen lately. I'll have to get a hold of some!

    Almost Anything in the $60 range would be better than it. I bought it for $50 and still sold it. It's not worth anything to me.

    Default Re: Pure Shot: Worthy of a Purchase?

    I bought it full price and I like it... why most people here hate it? I don't know but I'm thinking because it's light, doesn't project very well and doesn't last very long compared to other Thierry mugler scents of course. Sometimes that can be a good thing when you don't want everyone around you to smell your cologne for 6 hours and you want to wear something fresh and inoffensive like Pure Shot.

    I like it but it's gone from my skin in 2-3 hours. $60 is not a bad price, but you should probably get Roadster by Cartier. While Pure Shot opening is icy cold, it dies down within minutes, Roadster is spearmint fresh for 5-6 hours.

    Update:
    So I failed to heed all of your warnings and purchased Pure Shot. I will not say that I am impressed but I am happy with my purchase. Of course I get the terrible longevity and silliage from it but while it is there it actually does go through 3 distinct phases. While Pure Shot is definitely not groundbreaking, I believe it as well as Allure Homme Sport eau extreme are a nice change to summer fragrance options rather than the standard citrusy, watery, mainstream options available now.

    So... this can now be found on Amazon for $30 shipped... worth the gamble?

    Absolutely. I now own it, and like it a lot. The one knock on it is the projection/longevity is very bad. Very very bad. I overspray, and make sure to get it on clothing, that seems to help.

    No, not worth in my opinion. The thing is you do ask, therefore you like it and ask to quell thy conscience as you'll most likely buy it
    Whereas it's not worth to SOME of us here, to someone it might worth a 100 bucks and I can respect that.

    P.S. I really, really liked it when I sprayed it and it was cold outside, regardless it is a fresh, sharp fragrance.

    I think it is quite decent, it certainly doesn't deserve the hate it gets on here. Just don't expect anything similar to the others in the A*Men line.

    Only if you can get it for a low price. A good decent gym scent IMO.

    it's not even close to being as bad as some people describe it. It's worth 30$ for sure. On my skin longevity is decent for this type of fragrance (~5 hours) and projection is about moderate. At first i was under impression that projection is below average but i got compliments about the fragrance a few times at ~2 hours after application.

    I wouldn't buy this stuff again, even though I got it for under $30. This stuff is good upon application but dissipates extremely fast. I usually get about 2 hours or less and it's vanished.

    At that price for sure IMO even with it not being the best flanker in the series.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.

    Didn't enjoy this one. Never a good sign if one doesn't even want to finish a sample. I'd rather use Ice Men than this.

    I like it as a post workout cologne. Fruit-chouli stuff is my bag I guess. Its not for everyone. There is a period in its evolution that reminds me of Aventus. 5 hours on me...strangely, one of my more complimented frags.
