    Default Amen metal flask discontinued?

    don't see it ANYWHERE. Just the newer rubber bottle that is refillable.
    Does anyone know what happened? The most incredible packaging EVER for a male fragrance

    It was a limited edition, so inventory must have run out.

    They still have it on the U.S. website: http://www.muglerusa.com/a-men-metal....html?start=20
    as well as the gold version: http://www.muglerusa.com/a-men-gold-....html?start=16

    I have a 1 oz. metal flask, but I never see that size anymore, although the refills are still available.

    Only went up $16 from when it first appeared on the market in this form. Remember paying $100 directly from Mugler many years ago.

    It was never a limited edition it has been in production since 1996.
    i bought my second metal flask in 2010 for around 100 euros after giving my first flask to a friend.
    i guess people just werent buying it enough to justify it being produced. what a shame.
    The rubber flasks are HIDEOUS. especially pure wood.
    Pure energy is the only one in rubber that i like.
    The original 75ml crystal bottle for Angel was discontinued after some years as well as it was too expensive to make.

    The 30ml metal flask was discontinued many years ago.
    Im not sure what the new rubber bottle is all about but it is refillable so maybe its not as ugly as the other rubber flasks that you throw away when the fragrance runs out.

    I stand corrected, but you're right about the sliver flask being harder to find.

    I saw a metal flask Angel Men at a nearby Marshalls. I'm not a big fan of the scent, but this post makes me want to run out and buy it up. And I don't even keep a collection.

    Why is the metal flask unavailable in the U.S.? Is really being discounted.

    I bought a metal flask from FragranceX 3 weeks ago. IMO it is the most gorgeous bottle ever created. And as a bonus, it fixes the sprayer is fantastic compared to the rubber bottles (though I think the clumbsy sprayers are part of the Mugler charm and wouldn’t have it any other way)
