Great info, thanks for that. I have a sample of Pure Malt which will likely be my first Mugler bottle purchase.

Also looking for a barbershop/fougere scent. I like YSL's Rive Gauche, but I haven't sampled enough of this style to settle on one yet.
I got Millesime Imperial from smellyfinger. I thought I would try the other guy so got the Aventus from cleverusername. They are both on basenotes split forums and both were great to deal with.

I have only Mugler cologne, haven't tried any others from the brand.

Forgot to mention, MAC has a 25% off code (MAC25) valid online and in-store until 3/25/2018. For those looking to get Velvet Teddy or one of their Leather scents (and you haven't found them at Winners for even cheaper), the discount puts a 1 bottle order under the free shipping minimum. So go with the in-store option instead.

Just be wary of the sprayer for the Pure Malt. I've seen some people cut out the plastic at the top to make it better/easier to use. I have Armaf Craze, whose bottle, cap and sprayer I don't like, so I just decant it into a 10ml sprayer I have.

Rive Gauche is supposed to be THE classic fougere. I need to try it sometime.

I have an older CDNI bottle with a silver atomizer. I heard the atomizer on the newer batches/bottles is black (I'm not sure of this as I have not yet come across a newer batch).
I agree with you, 2 - 3 sprays of my CDNI lasts the whole day easy.

I'm not sure I've smelled the edp. I'll have to check that out. Is the performance any different? My skin drinks up the edt like crazy

Yes the new atomizer is black. Very disappointing as I bought the older batch only only a few months ago and loved it but now this batch is so weak.

It's great! It's like an 'airier' version of CASHEE. I paid about $45 for my 100ml tester bottle.

Just used the 15% off coupon for ebay on 3 samples/decants. Pomelo Paradis, Layton (already had a sample but now I have more!), and Un Jardin Sur Le Toit.

Where/when is the best time to get Armaf on the cheap?
I doubt they're sold in the winter cologne/perfume warehouse sales
That's not a knife!

Nice! How do you like it? On Fragrantica, people indicate that it's similar to Aventus. Do you get the same vibe?
