    Default what smells like angel men without the tar???

    Hey, i am looking for a nice gourmand to buy and i have smelt angel men and love the dry down, just not the top.

    Try some of the others from the line, but more specifically, Pure Leather is very similar to A*Men in terms of the dry down and doesn't have that initial tar note.

    If you do not fear wearing a fragrance targeted to women then Angel also by Thierry Mugler is what you're looking for. A*men is basically the more masculine version of Angel with the tar not added

    I am in the minority because I love the top of Angel Men. Awesome juice from front to back!

    Hanae Mori has a similar chocolate-gourmand vibe, but is much smoother, with an added citrus top. For me HM is a dressier A*men.

    ++ Pure Leather

    may also want to try Givenchy Play Intense a try. A little sweeter, but a much smoother fragrance that gets many compliments.

    I also like the top of A-men. The tar dirties it up a little, balances out the sweet. Love it!

    It's been said in the past, but check out St. Charles Shave's New Spice, it's quieter and smoother than A*Men, and dirt cheap. A lot of their others are pretty good too.

    Female Angel basically smells very similar, and I didn't detect the tar note in that.
