    Sounds like something that should be called A☆Men Chewing Gum. If I want to smell like chewing gum, I would chew gum. Add Mugler's ridiculously unergonomic disfunctional bottles and this becomes a giant PASS for me.

    5. Russian Tea Ritual by Masque (20 wears)

    Havanne has been reformulated, sadly. I own a 2012 bottle (batch 208111). A friend of mine liked it so much he asked me to get him one. I bought one directly from muglerusa website (batch code 0526004) made April 2016. I sprayed them on each arm and new one is nothing like the old one... new Havanne is like if they made a soap off the original.

    When you try havanne next time, check to see if it is 6 number batch (old formula) or 7 (new formula). I bet you'll like the 6 number more... in any case, even though not that similar smell... my favorite tobacco has become 18.21 man made.

    Is this a quick Mugler release after the recent big compliments that Le Male Popeye Eau Fraiche from JPG is getting from the fragrance community this year???? I hope 'mint' doesn't try to become the new rage in fragrances. We all know that once some house comes out with a novel number that gets traction, it's not long before every other house tries to capitalize on their "lab test fragrance" that comes closest to the 'new thing'.

    Not only that but Mugler turns up the chemicals to FULL BLAST YOUR F'ING NOSE OFF SO THAT YOU CAN'T SMELL FOR HOURS type stuff on their A-Men line. Their whole schtick for their A-Men line seems to be like they produced a fragrance that's akin to a concert-loud level product for those hard-of-smelling. I don't even want to BEGIN to smell what they are going to do to mint. My nose may recover after the nuclear meltdown-in-a-bottle that this stuff could be.

    I can see the advertising now....

    Made me wonder how the lock company gets away with it.

    The product was named after kryptonite, the fictitious substance that can thwart the powerful comic-book hero Superman. The name is used under a limited trademark agreement with DC Comics dating back to 1983
    Will most likely not be for me. Think the only Mugler I still own is a small bottle of Cologne, and Ice*Men, the latter being on thin ice.

    I liked Pure Leather.. Except for the overdose of mint. I'm quite sure this new flanker will be a pass for me..

    Perhaps you should look up "brown star" on Urban Dictionary to get an idea of why they probably didn't go with your idea.

    I wore it a couple days in a row , the smell is nice , in a similar vein of after eight Chocolate Mints .. ( less natural obviously) .. has something addictive.

    the good point is that the A men sweet part is there , is noticeable all the time, but very well restrained ..

    the cons : I felt it somehow weak , with a shy projection.

    Is it similar to Cartier Roadster, in which I got a thin mint vibe somewhat?

    This sounds good! I passed on Mugler flankers over the last few years, but I may have to pick this up if I hear some more positive feedback on it. I have always wanted a minty, chocolately Amen.

    Hmm sounds nice. Wonder if it's anything reminiscent of Givenchy Very Irresistible, which smelled like Junior Mints to me.

    After a couple of full wearing days .. I can say that is a cool smell.
    It has a type of aromatic mint at the top ( slightly citrussy), covering the sweet A*men feeling , which is at the background ... unveiled in a nice and light way, always noticeable but perfectly well restrained.What I like about the light A*men background is that I felt it more near to pure tonka kind of nice sweetness (not exacty the same) than the traditional A*men kind of sweetness.

    I´ll say that is a nice casual fragrance with the disaventage of a discret projection.

    Thanks for your impressions. You said you like the light, perfectly restrained projection but then you said it's a nice fragrance with the disadvantage of a discreet projection. So I'm a little confused. Do you think its projection is appropriate and well-suited for the scent, or do you think it's a "disadvantage," suffering from poor performance?

    Also, how prominent is the classic AMen patchouli note in this one?

    Thanks!

    hi dude , what I said about the "perfectly well restrained" is not the projection but the A*men base, which is at the background.

    that said , I think that the performance could be much better .. but is also truth that the very cold weather here doesn´t help you since you go very wrapped up at the moment and mint with cold weather, make that the overall remains a bit "blurred".

    As I told before , the A*men sweetness that you get at the background is not near to the classical A*men ( which should contain any patchouli vibe) but to the new pure flankers , more "dark" in that sweetness
