    For any age IMO. As far as how long, depends on how it reacts with your skin.

    25 and up. On my skin, about 30 minutes. I spray early before going out.

    I happen to think the tar note is the best part of A*Men. Adds an edge or character to what is mostly chocolate milk accord.

    If you dont like the tar note and enjoy the dry down, I would suggest Pure Malt over A*men. I love A*men but swapped my bottle away awhile ago for something else. I was about to pick it up again but I purchased a couple of bottles of Pure Malt first. Excuse me but damn!! It was amazing too me. I held off on purchasing Pure Malt as alot of people said that it resembled Pure Havane. I see slight similarities but not really. In any case, I did not purchase A*men because the dry down in Pure Malt is identical to A*men. To me it was so identical that it did not warrant another purchase of A*men. Just my 2 cents.

    Too long - 4-5 hours. This is why I prefer the flankers.

    Never, if you are lucky...that is what makes it unique. Otherwise just buy Montale Chocolate Greedy and be done with it.

    The tar is there throughout the duration of the fragrance but is most prominent within the first hour or two...at least on me this seems to be the case, it becomes almost non-existent in the chocolate, caramel, vanilla, milky drydown.

    Good point. I love the tar in A*Men but if you don't then the flankers seem to have that note turned down a notch or two. Try Pure Havane.
