    Default Thierry Mugler A*MEN Pure Wood

    I just received an email. The next 'Pure' mystery has been resolved. From the email...

    "The untamed energy of nature collides with the refinement of A*MEN. A wild encounter, for connoisseurs only... A*MEN Pure Wood, bold seduction. Exclusive access on 7.15.14"

    The bottle looks amazing. I hope that the juice is actually as amber-y as the picture looks like. The picture that they released for pure leather was very misleading. Now the scent itself...i dont think anything can be as big of a let down as pure leather was so I'm excited to catch a wiff of this one

    A new A*Men perfume.
    It's interesting this perfume company is able to successfully make flanker perfumes based their successful perfume 'A*Men perfume for men'.

    I think this perfume is going to be popular with the guys who liked A*Men perfume, Pure Malt perfume, Pure Havana perfume, Pure Coffee perfume, Pure Shot perfume & the rest of the perfume company Thierry Mugler- men's perfume line.

    But will it be popular with some one who likes A*Men perfume, Pure Malt perfume, Pure Havana perfume & Pure Leather perfume but who was really unimpressed with Pure Shot perfume?

    Anyhow, none of the good flankers ever get released in Australia. The specialist Mugler sales ladies in major department stores here are totally unaware that anything other than A*Men, B*Men and Ice Men exists. Instead, we have to rely on the odd Ebay seller to buy blind from.

    Yeah, same here. It's my favorite A*Men flanker and IMO could pass off as niche. The only reasoning I can think of is that maybe it didn't sell too well when it originally came out back in 2008, and they're oblivious to the cult like status it has now.

    I think it's going to be pretty hard to f this one up in all honesty. A wood-themed fragrance is about as safe as you can get and there is nothing wrong with that if it's done well. After a decline in mass appeal since Pure Havane this one makes total sense. I predict Pure Wood could be on par with PH popularity wise. Of course it will always have it's detractors no matter what, but we'll just have to wait, test it, and see if it delivers.

    Yes, original Pure Malt was a transparent orangeish color. Pure Malt 2013 is an opaque gold star, which is what Pure Wood appears to be as well.

    Latest from Fragrantica site:

    "Thierry Mugler announces A * Men Pure Wood, a new limited edition of its most popular men's fragrance A * Men from 1996, which will be released in June of 2014. The fragrance announcement promises: “The untamed energy of nature collides with the refinement of A*Men. A wild encounter, for connoisseurs only ... A*Men Pure Wood, bold seduction.“

    The composition is described as an oriental-woody with a distinctive note of coffee. It is made of oak notes, coffee, vanilla, patchouli and cypress."


    The notes sound great - can't wait to sample this one (and fingers crossed it's not the disappointment that Pure (P)leather was...!)

    Cypress ? Well i'm less optimistic now because i don't usually appreciate that note in any oriental woody composition.

    Cypress is the biggest reason why i just like Eau de Baux and not love it.

    I still hope it will be good !

    Now I'm confused. Thierrymugler.com says "Exclusive access on 7/15/2014" but, according the aforementioned article, Basenote says it will be released in June.

    Nice. I am so happy that it will be build around oakmoss and cypress instead of oud. Now I just wish that they would pass on coffee and vanilla lol. Anyway, notes sounds more interesting than I expected.

    Default Thierry Mugler A*MEN Pure Wood

    This is going to be a must buy for me. I've been looking for a Coffee frag I like for ages. Oak (a true Oak note) is slightly vanillic (it's what gives dark rum its key flavours). And I'm a big Eau des Baux fan.

    Let's hope it shows up on Muglers UK site.

    Based on the name Pure Wood and the posted video, one would expect this fragrance to be Wonderwood blended with V-i-a-g-r-a and C-i-a-l-i-s. In other words, it's an old man's cologne. But seriously, the coffee and vanilla notes aren't screaming Pure Wood and I get the feeling this one is going to disappoint...at least me. Where's the oud and cedar? But yes, I'll probably still buy PW then when it's released. C'est la vie!

    I dont really think its weird. Pure coffee is actually a very disappointing fragrance. I think the ONLY thing it actually has going for it is its leprechaun riding a unicorn made from unobtanium status. If pure coffee were released in quantities like pure havane and pure malt I can all but guarantee all steam in that engine would be lost and they would have a hard time moving all the product. I have a few samples of the stuff but I honestly dont know if I would even pay the $90 I would easily drop on pure malt for it. Honestly I think its the worst amen flanker sans pure shot.

    To each their own; Pure Coffee is actually my favorite A*Men flanker. IMO, it could easily pass as niche. It's my favorite coffee fragrance. Shame it's discontinued.

    I don't. The easy availability of Pure Malt upon it's return seemed to deflate a lot of the hype around that fragrance, and the line in general. PC is the only one left with any kind of aura about it now, at least in terms of it being hard to come by. I'd imagine they might want to preserve that.

    Dont get me wrong. I dont think pure coffee smells bad. But to me, the coffee note isnt really what I would call a true coffee smell and at that its way too fleeting. And as far as it being able to easily pass as niche? Sure I could see that. But I could many many fragrances in the designer world that could pass as niche. If there is one thing I have learned niche doesnt mean your good and designer doesnt mean your bad. If I started making perfume in my basement and started marketing it I would be a niche house. But that doesnt mean I would be able to hold my own against Le Labo or Nasomatto. If by it could pass as niche because of how far off the beaten path they decide to go when making a fragrance nearly nothing in the Mugler lineup could be considered commercial except their fresh flankers. So I would say in that respect the majority of the house could pass as niche. Still the term niche means less and less everyday except in a few localized areas IMHO.
