    Default Anyone ever wear original A*Men at the same as any of the flankers?

    Just curious. Sometimes I will spray original Angel Men on one part of my arm or neck then spray the flanker on another part. I especially enjoy doing this with Angel Men Taste of Fragrance and most recently with Pure Leather. With Pure Leather it is helping me identify not so obvious differences with Angel Men since the fragrances are somewhat similar.

    I haven't tried it yet.

    Exactly what he said. For me Angel Men tones down the pepper a bit in ToF and lasts and lasts and lasts.

    no cuz they last the whole day. so you cant reapply.

    pure malt (which i really love) is the only amen fragrance i would ever touch. the rest are disgusting.

    Dont care for the original A*Men....Pure Cuir is the intense version in my opinion but that one takes away the offensive opening.
    The rest of the Flankers are money....havane and TOF are the best IMO

    I have both of those...I may have to try stacking them. I usually prefer Pure Malt alone though.

    Yes, I have worn the original, Pure Malt, and Pure Havane all at the same time for sake of comparison. They start to become very very similar in the late stages of their dry downs.

    I have worn amen, TOF, PM, PH, and PC all at the same time. I did this to see the similarities and differences. I also wanted to see which I like the most. It changes but I like the, in this order PH, PC, amen, PM, PS, TOF.

    Default Re: Anyone ever wear original A*Men at the same as any of the flankers?

    No, I have never done that.
    I have layered Pure Malt and Pure Havane. This combo garnered some nice compliments.

    Default Re: Anyone ever wear original A*Men at the same as any of the flankers?

    Well, Pure Malt struggles in the drydown, so layering with the original makes sense

    Regular A*Men, I find disgusting. So I literally never wear any of it at all. The flankers keep only the pleasant aspects of A*men, and replace the repugnant accords with nice ones generally.

    Especially Pure Havane, it's the smoothest and most palatable, IMHO.

    No, I prefer to wear them individually. I don't like the idea of combining them.

    I'm wearing both of these tonight in the comfort of my home. Top notes of PM >>>>> top notes of Angel Men. Maybe you're right and Angel Men will lift PM up in the dry down. I pretty sure the Angel Men will still be noticeable long after PM has fizzled off.

    A*Men is the real thing!
    The flankers are created to the ones that dont like A*Men!
