The ink on the re-issue of A* Men Pure Malt (2009) for Holidays 2010 has barely dried that Thierry Mugler is holding in stock a new surprise for the senses: A* Men Pure Havane. The perfume label continues to riff on rich, deep and very masculine notes of armchair hedonism. The action all seems to take place in an amber-colored library filled with leather-bound tomes to the ceiling...
The initial release in this series of limited-edition phenolic fragrances, which apparently aim to appeal to the buccaneer instinct in men, was A * Men Pure Coffee.
"Enriched by subtle tobacco notes, A* Men Pure Havane lets you discover an intensely masculine perfume, strong, like the best of cigars."
"Exalté par de subtiles notes tabac, A*Men Pure Havane dévoile un parfum à la virilité exacerbée, corsé comme le meilleur des cigares."
The rubber casing for the cologne has been tinted a specific shade of brown this time, that of the cigar "Colorado Maduro."
The fragrance is reportedly "constructed according to the art of cigar tasting."
Thierry Mugler have been at the forefront of the meshing of the traditional fields of perfumery and alcohol-making by borrowing from their maturing techniques. Pure Havane continues to develop the theme of, quite literally, gustatory fragrances, in the sense that one talks both about the flavor and aroma of a cigar.
A 100 ml bottle of Eau de Toilette is priced at 70,60€ in Europe. A miniature is offered as a GWP for the launch. Enter code PUREHAVANE.
