    Default Angel men x pure malt | lidge x dhi

    Hello.
    I saw a reviewer's video saying pure malt is very different from angel men. But I also found some people in the forum saying pure malt is 80% angel men. I already have angel men and I really curious about pure malt, and I will have to blind buy this seeing it is hard to find in local stores. So my question is: Does it smell like angel men ? I'm really starting out and I cant afford to have 2 very
    simillar fragrances right now.

    Same question about DHI and LIDGE. I already have DHI, does it smells like LIdGE?
    If they smell different I'm probably going to blind buy both seeing that are 2 fragrances very hard to find.

    Again, I'm not asking who wins, I'm asking how different theu smell, because if they smell very like each other it is not worth for me to buy them seeing that I'm not a collector (unfortunately my student budget doesnt allow me )
    Sorry if these questions may br annyoinf to you guys but we are talking about hard to find fragrances, if it was one million x le male I would just go to the local store and smell
    both

    I don't think they are that similar. PM has a similar heart and base to A*Men, but weaker, with the boozy top notes tacked on to the front. I didn't like it much and sold the bottle I had. I think the original is much better. Many people love PM, though, of course.

    No - they are totally different. DHI is a sweet gourmand iris, and L'Instant Extreme is mostly dry cocoa and patchouli to me. Both are very nice and very different takes on the gourmand genre.

    All four smell completely different. The only thing they have in commom is that they are not aquatics!
    My current top 10 (subject to change) in no particular order:

    Rive Gauche Pour Homme, Serge Lutens Cuir Mauresque, Armani Prive' Nuances,
    Armani Prive' Bois d'Encens, Ermenegildo Zegna Indonesian Oud, Essenza de Zegna, Amouage Beloved Man, Fahrenheit Le Parfum, Dior La Collection Couturier Vetiver, and Rasikh Syed Junaid Alam.

    Would never, ever wear original A*Men, but Pure Malt is quite lovely. I don't think DHI smells anything like LIDGE.

    They're all different. Pure Malt has sweet, quite unisex and delicious fruit/berry (and whiskey, I guess..I don't drink the stuff) top notes, and is much smoother compared to A*Men's notorious, somewhat rough and dark opening. It dries down to a lighter vanilla and caramel with a hint of the berry smell remaining and is not as rich and sticky as the original A*Men.

    DHI & LIdGpH are not even close. The Muglers are similar to each other.

    pure malt has some similarities to angel men, but pure malt is much different.

    it has the chocolate, vanilla notes and patchouli, but pure malt doesn't have the tar note. instead it has a boozy beer note, which i like.

    Pure Malt and Angel Men do smell alike, but instead of the tar note it's replaced with a whiskey note. Pure Malt is also the smoother of the two fragrances and the blending is much better. There's also other more subtle differences, but overall Pure Malt is much better in my opinion.

    DHI and LIDGE are nothing alike to me. DHI is the more feminine of the two and has the iris covered cocoa smell with a touch of sweetness. LIDGE is more complex to my nose and strictly a formal fragrance.

    DHI and LIDGE are nothing alike. Both worth owning.

    Dior Homme Intense and L.I.D.G.E. are not similar to my noise in any respect. I enjoy them both, DHI is favored. As far as angel man and its flankers, I prefer A*Men over all of the flankers. All of the flankers definitely have a strong A*Men scent in them.

    As others have pointed out, All 4 are very different. PM shares some core "DNA" with A*Men (along with many of the other A*Men flankers), but it smells quite different. DHI and LIDGE are completely different. All are nice fragrances, but A*Men is probably the least "wearable" as the tar note is a bit overbearing to some.
    Seasonal favorites:

    1. Creed - Spice & Wood
    2. Creed - Aventus
    3. Dior - Vetiver
    4. by Kilian - Incense Oud
    5. Puredistance - Black
    6. by Kilian - Cruel Intentions
    7. Armani Privé - Oud Royal
    8. Brückner - Aoud 1
    9. Creed - Royal English Leather
    10. House of Matriarch - Blackbird

    I don't think they smell too similar. I think Pure Malt and LIDGE are the stars. All are very good though.

    All four are very different IMO. With Angel Men you have to like the tar note and patchouli in order to appreciate it. For DHI you will have to enjoy iris because with the reformulation it seems as if the iris hangs around for the life of the fragrance. LIDGE, you are going to have to like patchouli in order to enjoy this one and Pure Malt has a boozy accord which I really enjoy. IMO DHI>Pure Malt>LIDGE>Angel Men.
    My current top ten:
    1. Spice and Wood
    2. Dior Homme Parfum
    3. Tonka Imperiale
    4. Pure Malt
    5. Bois d'Argent
    6. Noir de Noir
    7. Apple Brandy
    8. 5 o'clock au Gingembre
    9. Epic Man
    10.Tobacco Vanille

    I also favor Pure Malt over the original A*Men which I am not a fan of.

    DHI and LIDGE are both different and would have advised sampling first as while DHI is fairly safe blind buy, LIDGE may not be for everyone with its dryness
    Summer 2013 Top 10 :

    1. Creed Aventus
    2. Dior Homme Sport (2012)
    3. L'Eau Bleue D'Issey

    5. Acqua dio Gio Essenza
    6. Strange Invisible Perfumes - Peloponnesian
    7. Tom Ford Neroli Portofino
    8. Diesel Green Masculine
