    Default Any tips on how to spot an A*men pure malt fake?

    I saw on craigslist that someone's selling it brand new in the box for $60. Seems way too good to be true right?

    Here's the link with pics. Let me know what you guys think

    It's gotta be fake. But I'm almost willing to throw away $60 just to find out

    I doubt it's a fake. Could be someone who just doesn't know its real worth and in need of some quick cash, therefore putting it up for an 'attractive' price to sell it ASAP. Then again, we don't know what's in the box itself.

    Yeah, I thought that the fact that he's selling his other used stuff might be a sign that he got addicted to frags and is getting out of the game. I think he mentions "thining out his collection" which is something understandable

    He has a phone number on the list and asking you to text him. he is a really dumb counterfeiter if the item is fake.
    I highly doubt it though.

    Again, not necessarily. FragranceNet had Pure Malt for around $53 after coupon, imagine buying up 4 or 5 of them and then turning around and selling them for $60. Easy money. If you're not in NY, no tax, and free shipping over $70.

    He realizes he's selling it discounted. Admits that he's losing money on the deal. He texted me "Already lost moneyt on it" so he must've had more that he sold for a loss because it was just sitting there. Obviously pure Malt is a youtube and basenotes craze. Probably can't turn a profit as quick as you'd imagine.

    There are lots of people selling PM for around $60. Thousands of people blind bought it for $88 because of the stupid hype. They realize its not that great so everyone is unloading them now.

    I know Pure Havane is back in stores so the value of that just tanked. There's still people out there that think that they can sell it for retail or more than retail prices. Seems like this guy or gal just understands supply and demand better.

    If it was $60 I'd probably take it, $72 is good but I'm in the midst of a deal for some right now so I'd probably pass. Appreciate the info though!

    $60 for a 3.4 oz is a great deal. This will be a blind buy for me so I'll buy one from him. See if I like it. Then maybe buy another bottle just because I'm a backup bottle type of guy

    - - - Updated - - -

    I chickened out guys. I couldn't pull the trigger. I went to perfumania to sample the original A*men and got scared. (They didn't carry PM) if PM is even a tenth like A*men I don't want it. It was soooo aggressive. I compare it to someone slapping you in the face and screaming "HEY SMELL ME!" Definitely an acquired taste as it doesn't have a very good first impression. Is wearing a*men a purely selfish move? It must be one of thosescents people love or hate. Definitely not pleasing to every nose. I guess I'm so in love with D&G TO that I'm looking for more delicious scents out there.

    Talk me down from this ledge. Is Pure Malt smooth and not as offensive? The guy selling it says it's just as unbearable as A*men

    The opening is totally different while the dry down has similarities. I was also quite 'offended' the first time I sampled A*Men but if you let it dry down, it's a totally different experience and very much worth the wait. You won't lose much money if you take it for $60, try it, and if you don't like it, I'm sure you'll find a buyer for at a similar price point.
