    Default Supposed new A*Men flanker will be: Pure Wood

    According to my Clarins rep they have received word that the new flanker for A*Men this year will be Pure Wood to be released fall 2014. She didn't have any other details for me.
    Maybe it will have some Oud in it like many have wanted, but hopefully it will be done well. I was kind of hoping they would bring back Pure Coffee since I hear so much love for that one.

    It will be interesting to see what the result will be when it makes its appearance.

    I agree, I think the world is over saturated with oud and it's being bastardized all over the place. Hopefully Pure Wood will be a step in the right direction for Mugler. And if they do a special edition bottle that has a real wood casing, that might be pretty sharp to have in a collection

    Which release is that? I still have nightmares about Pure Shot, but I really like Pure Leather. (I don't count the reissues as new relases, so just wondering)

    Yeah, similar suggestive thought came up in my mind immediately. They may be overestimating the maturity and sophistication level of their audience with that name...

    Or maybe that is EXACTLY what they were going for!

    I doubt it will have aoud, otherwise they would call it simply "Pure Aoud " ( ??).

    I'm guessing they're going to aim for something similar to the He wood series by dsquared, or maybe not !

    Looking forward anyhow....

    I really hope this is good, TM hasn't had a hit in quite a few years, and I can't remember the last release they had that really excited me. Hopefully this reverses that trend.

    I agree - Pure Shot was pretty bad.

    I was actually referring to Pure Leather. Not a bad scent at all (I have it and wear it sometimes), but was so much less than I was hoping for. It smelled a bit like a sneaker to me (rubber and leather), rather than a distinctive leather fragrance - and a bit too similar to the original A*Men (Pure Malt and Pure Havane on the other hand, while having the A*Men DNA, were quite different from the original). I guess I had my hopes up too high and feel like they could have done leather so much better.

    Probably not. Most casual fragrance wearers have no idea what oud is.

    SA's will tell them it's expensive and that's why it costs $185 a bottle. That's when you tell the SA that a bottle of real oud the size of the bottle they're trying to sell costs more than the car they drive.

    Sounds nice. Can't wait to try it. Hopefully it'll be more original than Pure Leather. Pure Leather is the most unoriginal flanker IMO. Way too similar to A*Men.

    Are there any updates on this? Mugler needs to get back on track IMO. The last couple of Pures weren't worth owning to me,

    I haven't heard anything since I first heard the rumor. And sadly, Clarins has revamped the way they deal with their models. They have divided the models up by the different lines (Mugler, Mont Blanc, Azzaro, Puig, Lagerfeld and Prada to name a few). My main contact used to be in charge of all lines in our area but now just has Mont Blanc and Lagerfeld for the men's line so she hasn't heard anything else as of late.

    Chocolate and Aoud wouldn't be a bad combo. Nasomatto does it pretty well in Pardon.

    Then again, if they want to latch onto the hottest craze in perfumery, they should just cave in and release Pure Aventus. They would be guaranteed a sale by most of this constituency I recon.

    Except for Havane and Chili which were exceptional, and Malt were good, the rest were ok to be gentle.
    Pure Sh*t was as bad as its advertiser.

    I'm looking forward to this one, as I like most Mugler fragrances. I do have to admit, I'm a little tired of the oud trend, however.
