    Default Would A*Men Pure Malt be suitable for a high school setting?

    The only thing I'm worried about is whiskey note; I'm not sure what the reaction to that will be.

    Yeah I think so, even though you will be different and stand out as it is not the safest scent (but this is not always a bad thing by any means depending on what type of impression you want to give off). One negative aspect of this fragrance is that it projects like a beast and that might not be the best for the classroom...
    Well enjoying what you're wearing is crucial, it is of the utmost importance to wear something that others like as well.

    Yes, it doesn't smell like whisky.

    Welcome! Nothing wrong for me - and it doesn't smell of whiskey to me either. But I agree with others: it is very powerful, so go very light, perhaps spray under the clothes or the like.

    As others have mentioned, just go light on the sprays.

    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.

    If what you're saying about its projection is true, would two sprays to the neck and to the wrist be more than enough, ?

    Yes, just spray once in the chest another in the back of the neck and one last one in your set of hair in the cabeza(head) , that shall be sufficient for your setting but if you need more then spray one more in the front of your shirt.....peace

    I also teach high school, and I have yet to find a scent that provokes any reaction (other than, "someone smells good in here!" which I basically pretend not to hear). I even wore Patchouli 24, although admittedly that was on the day of our gigantic Thanksgiving pot-luck, when the bacon or canned-ham note could be easily mis-attributed. It also happens that my school is progressive in its pedagogy and diverse in its student body, so there is a culture of freedom and individualism that may or may not exist in your school.

    I think mainly about projection. I'm not teaching a lesson about my SOTD, so it should not be a focus of attention for my students. I have never worn Pure Malt, but if it is a big projector, then I would start very small (mini-spritz to the small of the back, for example), and see how it goes. You can always wear more the next time, but unless you've got exceptionally great ventilation, you can't instantly de-scent your classroom.

    I disagree about applying to clothes for limiting projection; I sometimes observe the opposite result.

    Most likely, yes. Especially for evening/clubbing/going out occasions.

    Yes I don't think the whisky note will be a problem but go light on the trigger please. Don't be that guy who wears 50 sprays especially since this stuff's strong

    I wouldn't worry about the whiskey note. But I will echo others that caution you to go very very light on the sprayer....unless your classes are conducted in a lecture hall setting.

    There are some writers who have expressed the opinion, which I share, that oriental scents (which include Pure Malt) are best worn in the evening. Fresher fougeres and chypre scents would be better worn at school and work - you don't give the opinion that you'd rather be somehwere else partying.

    But plenty here would disagree with me.

    Anyhow, why waste the effect of your secret weapon at school? Best wait for the school dance/social or whatever they have nowadays.

    I wouldn't wear it to school, but if you do, I agree with the light application strategy. It is a great fragrance.

    It's pretty much what it was designed for. It's mainly a light vanilla, caramel scent suiting young men and women.

    I'd say Pure Malt is more of a night out with friends or a date fragrance. ADG is good for school or even Abercrombie & Fitch Fierce.
