    Default Pure Malt 2013 Edition ?

    Hello All

    I want to purchase both Pure Havane and Pure Malt and it's good to see the Mugler store has both in stock! Some of those ebay prices over the last couple of years have been ridiculous. Anyway, I noticed they have a new Pure Malt 2013 Edition as well as just plain old Pure Malt. Is the 2013 edition a reformulation? I'm confused what the difference is because Mugler are selling both on their site: LINK

    They're both the same IMHO and there's no great discrepancy in dated one before 2013 when the great greedy frenzy came upon us ....2013 release is the same, who ever tells is different better get of their Meds : Btw, is the juice inside that counts not bottling and they're identical juice wise to my nose, so no sweat here ....enjoy ......Cheerios mate

    Thanks

    I've worn both via decants and can't decide which I prefer, but both are bottle worthy so why not buy both I have a small sample of Tobacco Vanille which is an outstanding fragrance, but Pure Havane is much more wearable. Pure Malt doesn't really smell like anything to me.

    I've not posted on here in a while but all my regular frags are finished or running low (Creed SMW, MI, Amber pour homme, La Nuit, Reflection Man, Jubilation) so I've been looking to buy a few to replace these.

    I blind bought Dior Homme Intense a few weeks ago purely on the back of reviews. I don't dislike it, but it's not one I particularly like either. Funnily enough it gets a lot of strong compliments. Welcome to the fragrance world huh? That balance between pleasing others and pleasing yourself isn't a simple one!
    Also i have Guerlain L'Eau on the way and an impulse buy, Love and Luck. It was so cheap I couldn't resist!

    There is one fragrance I'd love to buy but can't justify the cost. That's Spirituese Double Vanille. I absolutely love it. It would be in my top 3. What a shame.

    It works out over $3/2 per ml which is a bit excessive. I don't think it's one that will ever be priced more reasonably so I think I'll pass. Shame.

    I've bought Pure Havane from the site, which incidentally includes 3 samples of my choosing. I chose mugler cologne and two women's scents.

    Malt can wait for now. There's a few others I'm mulling over, including Bvlgari Black, 24 Gold, Gucci pour homme 2, Bentley pour homme intense and midnight in Paris. I need to pick one -- except Black, it's a blind buy!

    It's funny how on this site people tend to recommend scents based on other scents someone likes. That's great, but then you don't discover anything new and don't go out of your little corner. I like everything from barnyard oud, tobacco, even rose, to clean white musk and aquatics. As long as it's done RIGHT pretty much anything can be enjoyable.

    Really?
    Tempted to get another bottle of PH. I like PM but I can't see myself without PH at the moment.

    Why has nobody criticized the horrific sprayers on these. They are terrible and you just can't get a clean spray.

    Damn, i wish i saw this thread earlier. 30% off would of been great! Im looking to buy both Pure Havane and Pure Malt. I was also confused how they have two versions of Pure Malt available. I guess as you guys say its the same, then the cheaper 2013 version is the one to go for (albeit only by a few s)

    on beauty encounter the price for the old batch has jumped to $125
    other places still have old batch at reasonable prices . ebay sells the new for around $100 plus postage . to me pure malt smells like oranges and lipstick . its pretty good , but i like pure havane better . they need to bring back pure coffee.

    I found the 2013 one to be very sweet. Haven't had a chance to test much, so cannot speak about the longevity.
    How is the longevity and projection of the creation 2013 edition?

    Just ordered Pure Havane and Malt. Also saw the 2013 edition, it was cheaper than the original, but the difference was like 3 GBP, which is nothing. Honestly, i don't know why would anyone order the 2013 edition if the original is available, which is known by everyone and safe to buy. It might be some reformulated s**t, i don't think it's completely the same fragrance, wouldn't make sense. But that's just my two cents.

    Well I finally got to smell this today at Macy's. I am assuming this is the current one.

    I've got to tell you I am absolutely stumped at what people are getting from this :

    THREE big sprays to my hairy arm. I get an astringent blast of alcohol and a little fragrance of something that I couldn't pick out. I waited a few minutes and smelled my arm again....NOTHING. Maybe a little malt ? Who knows but I don't get any fragrance out of this sucker. Now it's an hour into my three sprays and I THINK I smell a REALLY faint carmel smell in the background but I can't be sure because it is too faint.

    WTF ! I seriously doubt the tester was off. These people make a living on those things and spray it all day. It leads me to believe that it is the actual juice.

    So to re cap. I was so pleased to finally try PM but was let down because I couldn't smell a darn thing on my arm.

    I am sitting here in disbelief .

    Well... That's unfortunate for you. But we all know for a fact that Pure Malt is beast mode.
