    Default A*men alternative???

    Whats up every.

    I was wondering if there are any good alternatives to the original a*men, because i love the dry down and want a scent that has that same type of warm chocolate feel to it?

    The reason i cant wear a*men is because of the tar note as it makes me feel sick :/

    Replys are much appreciated.

    Try Pure Leather and Pure Malt. You might be able to handle them better than A*Men.

    If you want something like A*Men without the tar note, Pure Leather and Pure Malt will be what you're looking for. They are both based around A*Men. If you want to try something different but that is still 'similar' then there are other options being offered here.

    Great alternatives

    You may want to consider Cannabis Santal by Fresh. It's close to smelling like A*Men. You will read this similarity alot in many reviews.

    Animale Animale. It's only like $20 at any online store. Can't really lose. Don't get Animale by Animale,but Animale Animale by Animale, they are two different scents.

    OK, so this probably won't work, but some folks think Borneo 1834 is a kind of 'grown-up A*men.'
    “When you step back from stressing the parts,
    when the mind becomes still, the rose comes to you,
    unfolds in you in all her glory.
    The perfume invades you completely.
    The rose is you. You are one.”

    Getting less and less similar, I'd say:


    Pure Malt
    Borneo 1834
    Cannabis Santal
    LIDGE
    Very Irresistible
    Kokorico
