    Default Which Thierry Mugler A*Men fragrance do you prefer?

    I've not been able to test these myself in a store but I was wondering which you prefer.

    I sampled them at a local department store this past week, and didn't find any that really wowed me.

    Pretty close..

    I think Pure Malt is more true to the A*Men roots.. but Pure Havane is a fantastic scent also.. just more of nice cherry tobacco.

    If I had to choose one.. I think I'd choose Pure Malt.. but even though I personally ever so slightly prefer Pure Malt.. in some ways I think Pure Havane is an even better scent.. that probably doesn't make alot of sense.

    You can't go wrong with either IMO.. it's just down to personal preference. If you are interested in them I'd say probably buy both.

    Pure Havane, also Insurrection II Wild is about the exact same, a good one too if you're looking to save $$

    Pure Havane easily.
    Move on. It is just a chapter in the past, but don't close the book, just turn the page.

    I've pulled the trigger and ordered Pure Malt. I was going to buy Pure Havane as well but I watched MyMickers' review on YouTube and he said it was similar to Bogart Pour Homme with its cherry note. I hated Bogart and so it put me off Pure Havane. I will try to test it myself to make up my own mind.

    Anyway, I ordered Viktor & Rolf Spicebomb Extreme as well from Escentual with the current 25% discount.

    Pure Havane, but both of these are most everyone's first two choices among Amen fragrances. Might as well get both.

    Actually both, almost equally much, but if having to choose only one of the two, it would be Pure Havane

    Though I do like Pure Malt, Pure Havane wears better as it's more nuanced and less bombastic, making it much more versatile.

    However, had the poll included B*Men or Pure Leather, I may have - only just - voted for one of those instead.

    I wouldn't blind buy either of these. Pure malt is one of the most overrated scents of all time in my book- cloying in the extreme, shockingly artificial smelling and almost choking for the first hour or so.The drydown eventually becomes acceptable but too late. That's my take on it anyway. Pure Havane wins by default, but that's not much of a recommendation.
