A*Men Pure Energy Fragrance Reviews

I am a perfume and cologne reseller and have over 200 fragrances at my disposal, yet this stuff is what I find myself reaching for almost everyday. I read all the negative reviews and stayed away from this until I found out about a chance to buy it for a price that was too good to refuse.

I am glad I bought it!

Wow! With so much cologne around me everyday I simply don't get too excited about fragrances anymore; until now.

I always thought it was much too difficult to choose a signature scent. So many good scents that I would enjoy but get bored with quickly. Perhaps I will get tired of this at some point, but for now this has officially taken place as my SIGNITURE SCENT. And, dare I say, the best fragrance I have every tried. Also, the box and bottle are also as beautiful as any on the market.

For all those votes for this being a summer scent? I say no! This is a spring fall and winter scent. Amazing juice!

Extraordinary…

Pure Energy is another beautiful flanker of Thierry Mugler’s A*Men line. The underlying DNA is the same from the original A*Men, but I detect something unique, an almost citrus vibe, to Pure Energy. I also agree with other reviewers that projection and longevity are less than other flankers, but I am actually OK with this. Previously, I would not even think about wearing a Mugler fragrance in the office, but Pure Energy is an exception. Totally acceptable and appropriate for office wear as projection dries down to arm’s length and around the 5 hour mark, Pure Energy settles to skin level. Regardless, I love this juice and highly recommend adding to all collections. Further, if you don’t have any Mugler fragrances in your current stable, try this one as a “starter”. It is not overpowering and will be a crowd pleaser.

Final tally of Pure Energy is 4.1 stars out of 5. I love the A*Men line and have many in my collection. Given the increased flexibility of Pure Energy, it may be one of my favorites in the line. If projection and longevity were better, Pure Energy would easily fit into my Top 5. Highly recommend and a solid love for the fragrance community.

Enjoy your day and happy fragrance hunting…

At first, a confession:
I bought this because i have heard on the internet that it smells like the Deep Space Bodyspray from Axe.

And yes, it does. Not 100% exactly, but it comes close.

It is subtle, fresh, and a bit spicy- perfect for summer when terre de hermes would make you just smell like an often fired cannon breech.

I bought it this year and spent quite some hot evenings with it. I'd say it lasts longer than some here say it does, maybe 8 hours, but that is just a guess. my cloths always bear a slight hint the day after, if my aim somehow was impaired- the rubber cover wrapped around the spray button was not the best choice i would say.

Anecdotal evidence it gets recognized:
My long time crush was walking besides me at a festival one evening when she out of the sudden grabbed me by the shirt with both hands, got closer, took a deep breath and said "you smell quite good!".

No need to say this fragrance is one of my absolute favorites. :)

The opening is quite robust, fresh, in your face and definitely has that A*Men vibe to it, however the really odd thing about this frag is that is doesn't last at all. After about 40 minuets to an hour or so the scent is literally completely gone and I can't smell anything at all from it. Not even a hint of a base-note drydown. It's the weirdest thing, I almost want to say that this was not meant as a cologne, but more of a body spray (like those old school Bod Man ones). It's as if the scent breakdown is that of all opening notes and no deep base notes.

With that said it is the perfect kind of frag you would wear to the gym or doing any other physical activity (out in the sun or otherwise). Because since the scent fades to nothing in about an hour, there is no chance of it ever becoming cloying, regardless of how much you spray on. And it is such a wonderful fresh smelling and invigorating scent while it lasts. It would also make a perfect fresh out of shower scent for be-bopping around the house or going shopping.

While I generally like my frags to have great longevity, I do have a place for ones that smell wonderful but don't last long. Sometimes you just want that super-safe scent which you know will fade quickly and not hang around for 8+ hours.

I really like this one. And due to the poor reception of it, you can get a 3.4oz bottle for dirt cheap (easily less than $30). So at that price point, using liberally and re-spraying often is perfectly acceptable.

After 20 minutes smells somehow like Kenzo Tokyo(pepper note). The base notes give a very masculine vibe in a modern way. There is a hint of original A*Men and a bit of terre d'hermes (pepper note).
Projection: 2/5
Longevity: 4/5 (8h)

This is not gonna blow anyone away. It smells musky and clean and it dries down to a nice scent. This just does not last on my skin, for that I am not the biggest fan. I may wear it once a month, probably to the gym or after just to smell clean.

It's a fresh out of the shower smell mixed with a light gourmand. It's nice, but the performance is terrible. You have to do like 10 sprays and nobody will notice it an hour later.

This is a real shame because I am a HUGE TM A*MEN fan.

Besides The A*MEN Taste Of Fragrance flanker, this is the only other A*MEN Flanker FAIL for me. 1st off Pure Shot and Pure Energy share the same juice. So I will speak for both of them as one.

There is something weird going on here. Reminds me of being a kid and going to the beauty salon with my aunt & grandmother. The mixture of chemicals in the air with the smells coming off the blow drying caps. I know that sounds strange but that is the memory that was evoked when I sprayed the 1st and ONLY 3 sprays.

I am all too happy to SWAP out my NEW unboxed bottle which is full minus 3 sprays.

The bottle is absolutely beautiful though.

In a nutshell, I think Pure Energy is a re-packaged clone of the discontinued Ice Men with the same lousy projection. But I also have to say that of all the A Men derivatives, this is by far my favourite bottle with its polar white and blue colourway that screams FRESH! and is almost worth owning for the bottle alone.

As for the smell, I like it for its resolute masculinity and inspired soapy-woody interpretation of "fresh" - no need for citruses or aquatic notes here. I also think it's far more versatile for use than simply as a hot weather fragrance, and would work all year round as a daytime casual or office fragrance, but lacks the sparkle or charisma to be a clubbing or dating one. However, it also makes for a solid gym/sport fragrance, as I noticed that heat and sweat increase its projection significantly and so it might have just as appropriately been renamed "A Men Pure Sport".

In summary, it's different and intriguing and probably worth a buy if the price is right. However, it's a like rather than a love from me (mainly because of the projection issue), and don't bother with it if you already have or hate Ice Men.

I got this on a blind buy on eBay for under 30 bucks.
Pretty sure it's real because my unique number inside the box worked at the mugler site. It smells good, something that I would defently wear. I love mint. it has the Amen mint has when first sprayed. I also get some of the patchouli as well. It's kind of what I consider unique. When I smell scents from the house of Mugler, I always seem to keep smelling them. This one is no different.
.... BUT (and this is a big ol' but..) it has absolutely no projection and longevity. not just out of the amen line either, all of my cologne.. And most of my aftershaves too. I normally get great life out of scents!
If this is old juice then that's one thing.. But if I paid full price and this is really all i get out from it.. I'd have to punch Miser Mugler in the face... But with the whole marketing fiasco this shot/energy has had, Thierry probably punched himself.
I was expecting to get some performance like Mugler cologne (which worked great in summer for me) but I get at most 45 minutes before becoming a skin scent, before dying off maybe 2hrs. I'll try it and see in some warmer days here which it's geared to. After having and wearing it for three days now.. Would I buy it again. nope! Only because it's weak and no staying power. It's a shame too, cause I think the scent would be my summer and spring signature.

I have worn a few Thierry Mugler A men Scents including A Men original, Metal, Pure Havane, and Ultra Zest. One of the Elements of Pure Energy caused contact dermatitis, even when sprayed on the outside of my clothing. I had recently gotten some new clothing and tried some new foods. I assumed the cause was the clothing until I washed it and verified the materials. Then I assumed the food, until I stopped eating those new items for a couple of weeks. By the time I figured out it was one of the elements of Pure Energy, areas of my skin were thick, red, scaly, inflamed, and always itchy. I am guessing it may have been the sequoia or the white pepper, but who knows.

I got this as a blind buy today, because it was online and cheap. It is not a bad scent, but definitely not worth paying full price for it.

To me, it smells like exactly like Juniper Berries (Or think Pinecones kind of if you don't know what juniper berries smell like). There is also a little bit of mint that makes blends pretty well together.

Definitely not bad, but I think I would rather have La Beau Male (smells kind of similar, because you would use it in the same situation, but La Beau Male is done better)

I bought this juice for $29.99 off fragrancenet.com last week and honestly, I really can't understand the hate. I agree that it may not be upto the A*Men Pure line's standard since Pure Malt & Pure Havane have set the fragrance world on fire. Pure Leather and Pure Coffee also recieve high marks as well. But, think this an interesting take on a fresh fragrance. I can't see how anyone could find this even remotely offensive. I especially love the Juniper Berry note as well as the Seqouia wood note. To me, Pure Energy is a good gym scent & a good summer scent for rainy days. The vibe I get from this is summer time in New England on a cloudy day just after the rain stops in the late afternoon & the skies start to open up to a beautiful sunset . The calm after the storm.

My only issue with this juice is longevity and projection. This is the weakest juice in the A*Men lineup. Then again, for a fresh scent it isn't bad. I get 3 hours of projection and about 6 hours of longevity. My skin is also naturally dry so you may have better luck. If this scent was a little more potent I could see this being a go-2 in my rotation for causual situations. Excellent scent no question. One of my favorites in the A*Men line-up.

All the hate on this fragrance is really beyond my comprehension. Half the people are still concerned about Oscar Pistorius being face of Pure Shot (the exact same fragrance as Pure Energy). You people may be adults, but you haven't matured mentally. It is the same when kids refuse to put on A&F Fierce because of a man's naked torso on the bottle. Seriously...grow up! I have seen accomplished Youtube reviewers complaining about the lack of 'oomph' from this creation of Thierry Mugler. How about stop looking at the fragrance house and/or the ambassador and enjoy a fragrance for what it is?

This is a beautifully crafted fragrance with a few but definitive ingredients. The exquisite soapiness, the unconventional burst of herbal freshness puts this on the category of Prada Infusion D'Homme with the DNA of Aramis. Pure Energy is more than the alcoholic mint beginning. In the middle, the herbal freshness dries down to bright patchouli and the essence of a freshly chopped wood that probably is the sequoia. This smells like artisanal shampoo body wash and it is like an aromatherapy on its own. What I get is the feeling of walking through dark pine forests in the mountains after an autumn rain has just passed making way for smell of wet woods, tree bark being absorbed by Mother Earth, and the accompanying cool breeze. It is not an olfactory orgasm, but it evokes a sense of heightened pleasure on those who love the smell of the dark side of nature. Impossible to not smile when I get the occasional whiffs whenever I have it on. The white (or pink?) pepper in the drydown is absolutely stunning. For the untrained nose - imagine pencil shavings made of the most fragrant and expensive woods what have been dipped in sweet mint syrup.

Contrary to the people saying this is strictly a summer scent, I see it more of a crisp cloudy summer evening, fall/winter scent when the falling leaves, the smell of dried woods and the cool breeze would supplement it like no other seasonal trait. It is fresh and invigorating but not all fresh scents have to be for summer. Winter may kill the longevity and sweat magnify it but I can see how the harsh Kansas sun where I live can make it stink during the summer.

The scent cloud is weak making it more of a personal scent, and the longevity would depend on the skin type and climate you use it in. I have a feeling the base notes are there to stay a solid 6 hours regardless.

Men, wear it on any occasion, but especially put it on during daytime winter outings with your partner. Your woman will form memories out of this scent and see you for the top dog you are ;)

I got a lot of pepper and other spices in my Pure Energy in a fresh blend. The mint note makes it kind of cold yet the pepper makes it warm so it's like a slight contradiction. This fragrance needs a special kind of wearer. I need to apply at least six sprays to get a moderate sillage and moderate longevity so that's not the best performance I know. But I'm a woman maybe that's why Pure Energy doesn't get to do all its magic on me.

Edit:
I gave my bottle to my father and he smells super nice for a long time with just two sprays. Pepper and freshness, masculine. Thumbs up!

I was skeptical about purchasing this frag, but I have been presently surprised since I first tried this out. This is definitely working for me during the hot summer weather. As I've read from other reviewers, this dry-down is great. The top notes are kind of misleading as to what is to come. The sequoia really shines through after about 30-40 minutes and remains until this completely evaporates. I would recommend it for a fresh woody scent, as long as that is your kind of thing you won't be disappointed. I also found this for 42 bucks at Ross.

What a Dry down!

To begin with, while i liked it, it smelt like washing up liquid, as the day went on it just got better and better. the dry down is fantastic, which makes this Frag worth the £25 i paid for it (new). . .very clean smelling. perfect for work.

But i will be wearing this as my casual scent this summer, Dior Sport for occasions and Bvgari Aqva for beach fun this summer.

Also this one lasts well over 9 hours on me,

i'm not going into comparison...i liked/had 'ice men' and i like/have 'pure energy'...there is quite some matching DNA in my opinion...
But let's stick to 'pure energy'...when it's boiling hot outside this one will give you that minty patchouli ice cold refreshing breeze that will separate you from the others because let's face it....neither pure shot, ice men nor pure energy are 'common summer smells'...but they are truely awesome to me (also longevity and sillage-wise, certainly on fabric)...Everyone will notice it...'oh my God this guy doesn't smell 'summery generic' , this one smells ...can I say it Dear Lord this one smells 'Summerly Divine'...

I see a lot of bashing for this fragrance as many Thierry Mugler fans are only expecting gourmand scents so I had to get one and see what the fuss is all about.

This is a non-gourmand, fresh scent that is more suited for hot climate use. The scent does try to project a cold feeling and is successful to a certain extend.

It is a solid fragrance and is well better than many summer scents out there. Longevity is decent and siliage is just right. However to me the scent is too 'cold' that I get absolutely zero warmth from it. It's emotionless so to speak. I can't see myself putting it on and having a blast out doors. I would use this for office use.

Overall, a good effort but seems like a wayward son compared to the other gourmand scents in its line.

i have tested it twice at local parfume shop. really liked the smell, especially powerful drydown, but it looks like projection is not so good, while longeivity is great (i could smell it tomorrow on my skin), and sillage is amazing. it seems that few more sprays does its job for this one. price is pretty good - 45 euros for 100ml bottle. i think i will buy it in few days, and ill post update when fully tested.

UPDATE:

tested it many times and i really like the smell, while it lasts :) it dies quickly on me, unfortunately. it supposed last longer on warmer wather so i might update again when test it on higher temps.

Very fresh and really lovely EDT. Longevity very good too. No A*men note though but it's a lovely unique scent and nicely blended. Starts with mint and juniper, later on the pepper with woods comes through more. Pure Energy is nothing like Ice Men - Pure Energy is much nicer with more character. This has quite a potent fresh silage too. I think Pure Energy is a special fragrance and now in my top six.

Perfect if you want to take that Mugler A*men vibe on holiday with you. Clean, fresh, green, peppery with the same berry vibe from Pure Malt. Reminds me most of Pure Havane. Its like a lighter version of PH with a peppery vibe on dry down. Winter currently in Uk. It performs for about 3-4 hours. Projection is good but close. Definitely for summer. But its doing just fine in the cold. Really really fond of it. Muglers A*men fragrances always create a sense of wonderment and magic... finally I can take that vibe on holiday with me. Also reminds me a bit of Mugler Cologne and CH 212 men.

Ive been wearing this in the gym. Upon sweating and increased it pulses out in waves when I thought dormant. Cant wait to take this to Greece later this year.

Thrilling, explosive, intense. A big blast of mint and juniper berries ... joined by spices ... cardamom, white pepper ... and then a strong dose of patchouli and a hint of wood in the background. One of a kind cool sensation when it touches the skin ... powerful sillage ... and great lasting power on my skin ... amazing scent!

At first I hated though it was the worst flanker of the A*Men series but then after trying it couple of times and woody patchouli peppery drydown for summer is really hit to me. I am going to keep it I my wish list. It not your typical fresh scent.

I don't understand why people don't like much this scent. I think it isn't bad, great and different than the other summer and watery fragrances, better than Cool water or Aqua di Gio. On me was fresh menthol and dry wood with good sillage and last. Not enough masculine fortunately, so I think about purchase a full bottle.
It feels like Mugler's creation, fresh but there's a dense/massive base that describes Pure lines. It doesn't weaker than Pure Malt, at least on my skin.
Good for spring it's for sure:)

THEREALJWIL;
I'm not here to argue, but correct you, because you're misinforming people by stating things that aren't true.

The company that has produced the Thierry Mugler fragrances since the beginning has been Clarins, so there is no "new" company that you speak of. The fashion house was later purchased by the Courtin family, which is the family that owns Clarins, but there is no new company that deals with the fragrance/beauty division.

The only difference is the box to this fragrance. Due to the unfortunate circumstances with Oscar Pistorius, the company dropped him as the face and repackaged it. It's the same exact scent. If they were to want to dilute the fragrance, they would have to cut into the rubber flask, somehow break open the sealed flask inside, reformulated (you're contradicting yourself, because you stated that it's the same scent) and dilute it (it's still an EDT), and then repackage it entirely. Cost effective = take out of one box, place in new box.

I was at the department store the other day when I was purchasing Prada Amber Pour Homme when I looked over at the Mugler counter and saw Pure Energy, so I gave it a try.

I think it smells very similar to the original A*Men because of that patchouli note, but it's obviously not sweet and foody like the original. Also, I detected a cococut water note in the opening, which was probably caused by some of the other notes. It stays linear from the opening and into the dry down, which I don't mind.

Pure Energy is a nice scent, but I can't say that it's worthy of a spot in my collection because it smells too much like the original A*Men. If you really love A*Men but you feel like it's not very wearable in spring and summer, then take a look at Pure Energy.

I'm not dissing A*Men--I own it, love it. But why does every single one of Mugler's mens frags have to be a flanker of A*Men? Especially since some of them have absolutely nothing at all in common with the original. Why not just come up with a new line? At least imo, it would seem a new line would generate more press, which could spark more interest and yield more sales. But as a criticism of Mugler himself as a designer...sometimes the he creates a true masterpiece of a fragrance and other times it seems he lacks any creativity at all or just didn't care.

A*Men Pure Shot / Pure Energy by Thierry Mugler

SUBJECTIVE

Among a long list of dark, rich A*Men derivatives, this one interestingly offers a fresh, cooling warm weather scent. A sharp and icy Thierry Mugler fragrance, it is starting to sound a lot like a previously discontinued summer scent from this house: Ice Men. What a shame, in all truth, as I feel Monsieur Mugler has simply brought back a slightly modified version of Ice Men under the A*Men brand.

A*Men Pure Shot is almost identical to Ice Men, though it contains a lot more patchouli. As bitter as I am about the discontinuation of my beloved Ice Men and its travesty in the form of a so-called A*Men flanker, I like this scent because of my affinity for Ice Men. Beginning with a sharp, icy blast of mint and juniper berry, this cold scent for the heat quickly dries down to a patchouli base sprinkled with white pepper. This fragrance, now relaunched again as A*Men Pure Energy – surprise, surprise - also has the aromatic quality of Azzaro’s Chrome and a slightly grassy characteristic like Carolina Herrera’s 212 Men.

OBJECTIVE

This fragrance has a fair performance given that it is intended for the warmer months of the year. Like many such colognes, it starts off quite strong, only to quickly calm right down to the skin hours after application. Despite a projection that fails to last nearly as long as its longevity, this quality makes it quite suitable for exercise. Two sprays to the neck, wrists, chest and shirt will suffice.

IMPRESSION

A seemingly forgotten scent since the discontinuation of Ice Men, why has Thierry Mugler taunted us with this unique juice served in an A*Men bottle when it actually has nothing to do with A*Men? Perhaps a desperate attempt to sustain the A*Men line, Pure Shot or Pure Energy or whatever it is still deserves credit for an invigorating, masculine scent that nicely cuts through the heat despite this marketing travesty.

PLAN

Unless you are a collector of the A*Men derivatives like myself, pass on this one if you own Ice Men. If you do not own Ice Men, go ahead and purchase either Pure Shot or Pure Energy or Ice Men, preferably Ice Men since the fresh opening lasts the longest. If your collection is, however, already replete with the typical fresh/aquatic “blue” colognes, then you are not missing much. ★★★

I hated this fragrance at first, but then i kinda liked it. Nonetheless it is still a mess. Soapy, like detergent. Fresh but nasty. It's not very wearable. 6/10

I somehow didn't think much of it in the summer. It had this suffocating effect on me in hot weather. Now that it got colder I came to appreciate it. It fully deserves the 'fresh-spicy' label. It's refreshing yet has a fabulous mix of spices. Gets me positively energized!

Pure Energy and Pure Shot don't really differ much. To they're almost the same. The sillage and the longevity are also like Pure Shot.

I must say its a bit different than ps at the base. I like it as it is so versatile and good for hot weather.

It's pure shot, but repackaged, because of the Oscar P thing. Same fragrance entirely.

Maybe they just want to distance themselves from Oscar pistorias, one too many accidental shootings for muglers taste
