    Welcome to you! A*Men Pure Malt is very nice. If you can get it at a good price I think it's a good choice.

    Welcome govolsdeep! I wouldn't blind buy the original angel men.. definitely try before you buy. Pure malt & pure havane are better but i wouldn't recommend blind buying anything. But if you absolutely have to these are pretty safe 1. Bleu de chanel 2. La nuit de l'homme by ysl 3. Chanel allure homme sport 4. Versace pour homme 5. L'homme by ysl 6. Burberry for men 7. Mugler cologne by thierry mugler 8. (Get this one as a split) Creed aventus 9. Nautica voyage <--$20 on fragrancenet.com) 10. If you have a tjmax, marshalls or ross you can get cuba prestige for $7 and its 95% the same as angel men. And fragrancenet.com is a good place to buy.. the perfume court and surrender to chance are good places for getting samples. But most you can sample free if theres a sephora or macys in your area. Good luck! :-)

    Pure Malt is pretty nice, but it's quite sweet, so it depends how you feel about sweetness in fragrances. I think you should give Spicebomb a try; it's also sweet but it is balanced nicely with spices.

    Welcome! I would say try Angel Men Pure Havane. A men's gourmand with tobacco.

    Yea except for creed aventus and mugler cologne maybe.. neiman marcus is the only place that carries creed frags.. but macys has most thierry mugler frags usually. And at sephora they'll make you samples of whatever fragrances you like. And amen is nothing like any of the frags you listed. It has this tar like top note that is a deal breaker for me.. they say it gets better in the drydown but i just couldn't do it haha.. i know macys has amen.. idk about sephora.
