    Default A*Men Pure Leather

    I sniffed this at Macy's and was disappointed. I expected leather to be the prominant note, but instead got the chocolate blast. It seems Thierry was okay with releasing angel men with a drop of leather. Unless the leather really kicks up in the base, total flop.
    Rerelease pure havane and malt already!

    Did get plenty of leather (or what I think is supposed to be the leather) and coffee, quite enjoyed it. Certainly found it closer to A*Men in tone than the smoother, more unisex offering PM. Just gets a bit sticky on me after a while and it lacks sophistication. If they sold cheap 30ml bottles of the stuff, I'd be more interested.

    There are plenty of threads that have been about this frag including one thats like 6 pages long...anyway if you cant smell leather, Ive come to the conclusion that you have never smelled FINE leather before. I have a bunch of designer belts and Pure Leather to me reminds me of my Hermes and Gucci belts....also pretty damn similar to a couple pairs of Gucci sneakers I have. Unless there are batch variations the same people who think Pure Leather smell exactly like the original are probably the same ones who said Pure Havane smelled exactly like Pure Malt.

    Glad to help! I stocked up on some backup bottles the day they were released. I'll probably grab a few more before the Pure Malt and Pure Havane well dries up.

    I get the leather note. However, I also get a strong rubbery note also, which is why so many people say it smells like a sneaker.

    Decent fragrance, but not different enough from the original IMO. Had they toned down the "A*Men DNA" in it, and increased the leather note, I think it would have been a hit.
    Current Summer Favorites:

    1. Xerjoff - Nio
    2. Tom Ford - Rive d’Ambre
    3. Dior - Homme Cologne 2013
    4. The Different Company - De Bachmakov
    5. Armani - Code Sport Athlete
    6. Ermenegildo Zegna - Sicilian Mandarin
    7. Dior - Homme Sport 2008
    8. by Kilian - Straight to Heaven
    9. Montale - Aoud Legacy
    10. Creed - Pure White Cologne

    It was a good thought, but this could have been done better. A little too much hype on this one.

    Count me as wanting more leather.
