    Default I didn't like Pure Havane. Will I like Pure Malt?

    I was considering buying Pure Malt blind but wasn't sure whether it was worth it or not.

    I really didn't like Pure Havane mainly due to the top which was too sweet and cloying. I also found the drydown faint and somewhat boring.

    So I was wondering if Pure Malt had the same vibe as PH. If it does, I probably won't be buying it.

    Thank You!

    If you thought the top of Pure Havane was too sweet and cloying chances are you wont like the top of Pure Malt.

    Chances are you won't like it, PH and PM are not a million miles apart.

    Buy some Nestle's chocolate milk powder (do they still make that)? If you would like to smell like that, with a tad bit of booziness thrown in, you should like Pure Malt. There used to be a guy selling small samples of Pure Malt on eBay for a decent price. Try to find him. You certainly wouldn't want to buy PM blindly.

    Pure Malt is a heavenly scent to some, but you really need to like at least some of the sweet, gourmand fragrances. If you don't, then the odds aren't good that you would like PM.

    with all that being said above, its probably one of the safest blind buys ever because if you dont like it you can sell it off in two seconds flat.

    It's certainly got a similar vibe to PH, but as the poster above says, plenty of people will be waiting to take it off your hands if you find you don't like it.

    Hard to know for sure, but my guess as others have already said, probably are not going to like it.

    People like saying if you don't like A Men then you won't like PH or PM, I think in that case they're different enough for you to like one and not the other. A lot of people like PM more then PH...I think its surely worth a try. Yeah they have their little similarities but they all have their big differences and elements you may dislike one may not show up in the other.

    I wasn't crazy over PH, I like it though but I'm planning on getting PM as well.

    I've heard of a lot of people not even liking A-Men and PH but LOVE PURE MALT!

    I will try it, it probably will be good but like most of the line its over hyped..its still a good fragrance but people sure like to boost its ego up.

    It'll be hard for me to get it since I'm in Canada so I don't think it's worth the trouble since chances are I'm going to dislike it. Plus it's not that versatile so I'd rather just spend my money on something else :P

    I found PH to be infinitely better than PM.... Perhaps the inverse will be true for you. Not sure what I think of PM yet, but my gut-level reaction is 'meh.'

    Personally I think I'll like PM better, one thing I wasn't nuts about in PH is the cherry like powdery feel of it but I still like it but I'm anxious to try PM.

    I also like Pure Havane better than my sample of Pure Malt. The latter didn't "wow" me the way PH did the first time I smelled it. Will still be purchasing a bottle as it still smells a lot better than any fragrances out there.

    Doubtful you will enjoy PM if you don't like PH.

    Well look at this guy, like a lot of others

    Doesn't love PH buts likes PM...

    I hate how people make it out like you need to like one to like the other..you need to like A-Men to like PH you need like PH to like PM you need to like A-Men to like PM and PM to like PC and all that babble...they all have their differences that separate them from the bunch and make them their own unique fragrance they all have enough vast differences.

    Take PH, add some booze, a bit more caramel, and a plasticy drydown... Thats what hurts PM for me.

    If you found PH too sweet and cloying, PM will be too sweet and cloying is my guess...
