Pure Leather is like the Original A*Men without the tar note. Since you hate the tar note, give PL a try!
Hey, basically i smelt amen and i hate the tar note, errr it makes me feel sick.
BUT, i love the chocolate dry down and the caramel smell.
I really want to smell like that but dont want to get amen cos of the tar note.
However, ive heard pure leather is a*men without the tar??
Is pure leather worth buying? Will it mean i can have that amazing chocolate scent without the tar???
Appreciate any feedback?
Also, will pure leather be good for someone still in the teens and be appealing to people 16 - 19+
I cant smell the tar note in A*Men and Pure Leather smells identical enough that I won't shell out the bucks for a clone flanker.
"All of my 2012 batches of Aventus smell EXACTLY the same...even the grey market one with an Arabic lot sticker on the bottom of the bottle." - BT260
It's worth buying IMO.
Probably come out better sampling it first. I wouldn't blind buy this one.
well theperfumedcourt is doing 1ml samples of pure leather and i am going to get one!
i found the opening of pure leather to be tar-less like others have said. it is as close to a*men you can get out of the flankers.
so would you say you could spray this on and leave the house straight away without smelling like tar and leave the house smelling smooth, choc and caramel etc???
When you receive it, let us know what you think.
Before you go and buy PL, I would suggest picking up a bottle of Animale Animale which smells exactly like Amen with without the tar note, and is a fraction of the price. Seriously, they are almost Identical except for the tar note.
hmmm very tempting but i would have to blind buy and from reviews its more mature smelling? whereas pure leather has a more versatile age range? (from what ive heard on reviews)
I still prefer the Tar note. A*Men hands down

You'll get somewhat odd but not necessarily unpleasant leather/coffee top notes instead. If that will please you, only you can know. Personally I prefer the original.
I find PL very different from A*Men, the suede in it makes it harder to wear than A*Men
My current favorites:
Bleu De Chanel, Dior Homme Sport 2012, Mauboussin M Generation, Zino Davidoff, Pal Zileri Viaggio D'Africa, and Rive Gauche.
I find PL very, very similar to the original. If you are looking for something dissimilar to the original, look into Havane, Malt, or Animale Animale.
