    IMO Yes.

    if you can, sample it first.

    Default Re: Should i get pure malt?

    No. (Just because the hype is so silly surrounding these frags. [I don't care if they are great or not])

    If it's expensive and that's a bit of a problem, jesus buy tons of samples or something. Much more fun! and I'm sure you'd find something just as good as anything in your opinion

    Yes. Pure Malt would be the best fragrance in your collection, IMO. (Based on what's in your BN wardrobe.) It is similar to A*Men (because it's a flanker), but it's different enough that it wouldn't be wasteful to have both.
    Current Top Five:
    1. Bois des Iles--Chanel
    2. George Sand--Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier
    3. L'Ame Soeur--Divine
    4. Violet Blonde--Tom Ford
    5. Santal Blush--Tom Ford

    Only buy after you have sampled. If you sample Pure Malt, also sample Pure Havane. It's better, IMO, and not at all like A*Men.

    Default Re: Should i get pure malt?

    I've said this before.

    If you like A*Men and , in general, enjoy the aroma of malt then you'll love Pure Malt.

    If like me, you despise A*Men then PM will be as revolting.

    Default Re: Should i get pure malt?

    I'd say no. It's not bad, if somewhat weak and mainstream, but I may sell mine again. Considering that you only have 9 frags and already own A*Men, I'd branch out a little and get something a tad more exciting.

    I don't agree. I hate A*Men, but love Pure Malt. I know that A*Men is the base for PM, but I think that the process (soaking) removed that horrid A*Men smell.

    This ^ ^ ^ ^ x 10.

    To me, Pure Havane is more wearable, and smells much better than Pure Malt.

    I can smell 80% of A*Men in PM.

    But everything's subjective. So yeah you're right too.

    I love them both, but also agree that PH is better.

    I like Pure Malt more than regular A*Men, but they aren't so terribly different. Pure Malt is sweeter and not quite a strong. What are the other 8 that you own, and we can perhaps suggest something that would give you more variety instead?

    I don't get how others can prefer PH over PM, but to each his own.

    Anyway, I wouldn't buy it blind, but I would say that if you like A*Men, you'll like Pure Malt. It doesn't work in the reverse however, as when I smelled A*Men for the first time, it was after I had fell in love with PM and I didn't really care for the opening.

    Pure Havane is the Ace of the A*Men line!

    With that said I would say yes you should get Pure Malt, it is different enough than A*Men with the boozy berries on the opening. I say get it.

    I actually like A*Men better, than Pure Malt though.

    I like A*Men and blind bought PM and thought it sucked. Don't buy it blind and don't believe people that say that if you like A*Men you'll like PM.

    It's a nice fragrance. I like to think of it as borderline-niche (seeing as how it smells a lot nicer than half the niche fragrances I have smelled)
