    Default Pure Malt or Pure Havane?

    Which one do you prefer? Thinking about ordering both. Or maybe just Pure Malt.

    P.S 2 more hours until re-release of PM!

    I go back and forth. I was more partial to PH, but now I prefer PM.

    Thanks for the feedback. Might end up getting both and putting AHS on hold for now.

    Both are good frags, but I think I like PM better. Why not snag both if you can though, it's good to have options, right?

    Both good but I haven't worn PH enough to tell if I prefer it to PM. I'd get both if you can.

    Both are great but I like Pure Havane slightly better. The cherry tobacco note is Just downright delicious.

    Pure Havane if you only get one. I would just get both considering the price and availability. They share a lot in common the first 5 min, then they begin to take their own shape; so dont be suprized if you dont see an initial apparent distinction if you spray them both at the same time. I feel with Havane you get a one-two punch, and with PM a nice jab. IMO. I must admit I tried Havane first, and later, read all the PM hype before ever getting PM. Its a win win, just do it

    I just jumped onto Muglers site and picked up both for 88 a piece (3.4)! I like then both but have more trigger time with Havane. They will both get used come late fall-winter!!

    Pure Havane is best, IMO, but if you really like both and have the opportunity (and dough) to buy them both over the significantly inflated prices that they were going for a month ago, then you should at least consider getting both. It really depends on how much you love (and wear) the gourmands.

    The problem I have with some of these great smelling Mugler's is that they just aren't different enough to warrant having more than one, so in that regard, just choosing your favorite one would be the prudent thing to do.

    I agree...get both....you can grab either one on TM site for like $88-90 bucks...I definitely think AMen, Malt and Havane smell different...now if your comparing Sun, Ice and Shot...I think they smell kinda similar. BMen is an animal unto itself.

    I like Pure Havane a lot, Pure Malt not so much. I had a bottle of PM and flipped it on eBay soon after getting it.

    If I were getting 2 it would be A*Men and PH, not PH and PM.

    Pure Malt -- would highly (HIGHLY) suggest snagging a bottle. If you're not into it, it's an easy one to find someone to take off your hands.

    I want to buy one of these but am having a real hard time deciding which one.

    I LOVE the original A*men so suspect I would like both of these, so I would like the one with the best projection and longevity. I see conflicting reports from all over the place, some saying PM is stronger, others saying PH.

    So which is it?

    Pure Havane is good. Pure Malt is GREAT.

    Havane to me is just redolent of a throat lozenge. Pure Malt smells like a fresh cold frothy pitcher of beer with some quality patchouli in the background.

    It may not make it to department stores. It's a limited release. It's been on the web site and in some duty free shops for a while. If you want it, order from their web site while you can.

    Got decants of Pure Malt And Havane to sample before committing to bottles. Have to admit I like both but feel that Havane is more versatile when used in limiting doses or on chest under my shirt. When applied to neck the sweetness will gag me.

    They both have the same DNA, both have that Tar note opening. But Havane has a berry dry down and the Pure Malt has a 'Malt caramel dry down. Hmmmm I would have to say havane has more of the projection and longevity.
