    Default Anybody has seen this Pure Malt bottle?

    Hey folks! A guy here is selling his near full Pure Malt 100ml bottle for about $50. The thing is the bottle is different and looks like one of those A*Men steel flasks. He's saying its the limited edition pure malt that he picked up a couple of years back. I am not aware of a limited edition pure malt. Can somebody confirm this?

    Here are some pics.

    It just looks like the bottle has been removed from the rubber flask and put into the metal flask.

    That's exactly what i thought. What i don't know is whether pure malt was ever sold in steel flasks as 'limited edition'. Mugler website has nothing on it either.

    Either way, a near full 100ml FB of Pure Malt is worth $50. So there's not much risk of loss.

    It wasn't, but that doesn't stop you from removing the bottle from the rubber flask and putting it in the metal one. I don't know of any fakes for this fragrance, so you should be fine.

    That's what baffled me too. But A*men range has some dumb editions (regular rubber flask, steel flask, 'gold edition' and what have you).
    Besides, there has been a thread relating to PM limited edition but the links to external sites are dead. No much help there.

    I'd agree with everyone who said it's a bottle transferred from the rubber flask to the metal one, but why don't you just ask the seller about it? Seems like the easiest way to get the answers you're looking for.

    Or better still, just buy it online from the Mugler store. It's only £45 in the UK, hardly expensive if you are so concerned about the product being fake. The extra that you spend is surely worth the piece of mind.

    Edit: it's £48 now.

    Who in his right mind would carve out the rubber flask (which is kinda appealing, btw) and take pains to put it in a steel flask? The guy selling this maintains that this is a limited edition. Surely some basenoter will have come across such a 'limited edition' if there was one.

    For starters, i don't live in the UK. I am unable to find any PM bottles sold in boutiques here. No luck with online retailers either. Early last year it was everywhere but i was not too keen on picking it up. Sigh.

    Btw, 45 pounds for a 100ml PM bottle (as on mugler uk site) is an awesome deal. Mugler USA site has it listed for $89.

    There were times when Pure Malt was sold for around $100-200 on ebay. I can see why anyone would try to make a fake... As far as different bottle designs... there was not different bottles on anything besides regular A*Men and B*Men. Even testers of limited editions have same rubber design as normal versions (I had couple of them). If you like your money then run as fast as you can.

    BTW even a colour of star on pic that you posted looks more like red star from A*Men Taste of Fragrance or metal version of B*Men. (I found one pic on auction of metal b*men that is no longer active ( https://encrypted-tbn1.gstatic.com/i...KQivrgvvEM90jg ) (http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/B-Men-by-T...-/291019359781)

    Agree. Simple enough.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    It seems a little sketchy. If it were me, I would rather spend a little more and get it from a trusted retailer. You can find it on Fragrancenet and with ebates, you can get a good deal.

    It is definitely not Pure malt, the flask of Pure malt is yellowish/amberish color, this one is red. If it is not fake then my best bet would be it is the refill of B*Men in an A*Men metal case. $50 is too expensive for a B*Men refill bottle

    This is an obvious scam, stay far from this guy
