My Experience with A*Men Pure Tonka by Thierry Mugler:
My first experience with this perfume came as a bit of surprise, as within seconds of the first set sprays, the Lavender Notes, Patchouli Notes and the Tonka Bean Notes burst loudly leading to a slight harsh opening. An hour after the rough opening, the notes gradually blend in into each other and smoothly transcend into submission. The Tonka bean Notes subdue a bit and the vanilla notes start to kick in. The Lavender and the Patchouli notes remain in the background.
So, as time passes, it slowly develops into a really nice ambient fragrance. As a result, what we get is a very pleasant warm coffee-like aroma which easily compliments any body type. Also, the sweetness during the drydown might be a little less masculine for many.
The opening of the fragrance is very loud but after an hour or so, one can sense mildness. As a result, the fragrance does not have a very long projection period but it can linger onto your skin for long. An average estimate of the staying power is of about 18 hours.
The A*men Pure Tonka Thierry Mugler Perfume can be categorized as an Oriental-Fougere Fragrance. These type of fragrances have a harmonization between Warm Sensual Oriental notes and Sharp Woody Fougere Notes. Such fragrances are well suited to be worn during the Fall/Winter seasons or the early Spring season. By virtue of it having a warm aroma, wearing it during summers or in warm climate would result in the development of complete dislike for the fragrance.
Talking of occasions, A*men Pure Tonka is versatile and can be worn from Dates to office during the night time. It is advised to refrain from wearing it on hot and humid days.
As for the design of the bottle, Thierry Mugler chose to stick to the traditional standard design. But what really disappoints is the plastic body of the bottle.
Summary of likes and dislikes from this perfume:
1) The staying power is impressive.
2) It compliments well with any body type and would suit all age groups.
1) The over sweetness during the drydown makes it a little bit less masculine.
2) The opening is too loud.
3) The plastic body is slightly disappointing.

Overall: This particular Thierry Migler perfume – A*men Pure Tonka Perfume is a fresh warm aromatic composition of Oriental and Fougere Notes. Undoubtedly it is, a refreshing and sensual addition to the Fragrance Collection Line. I won’t say it could be best perfume for men 2016, as parameters like a loud opening and less masculinity due to over sweetness, weigh down the overall performance of the perfume. The fragrance lasts well, but in the drydown, is too subtle to be felt and enjoyed.
