Over-ripe Fruit and Burnt Sugar
B*men is one of those fragrances that people seem to smell all kinds of different things. To me it smells like over ripe fruit and caramelised sugar, with some vanilla thrown in for good measure. The patchouli and vanilla combination is present (is it my imagination or does Mügler use this lot?) and the result is a rich gourmand that to my nose is streets better than A*men.

The combination of liquorice and the sweet notes are perceived by different people across the whole range of burnt sugar, caramel, to liquorice. I am somewhere in the middle: I would say Blue Sugar by Aquolina is much more the liquorice scent. I get good projection and longevity from this. For a cologne that is supposedly discontinued, it is still pretty easy to find.

Wow. Talk about gourmande...
Only 15 minutes into B*men. And I felt like I've eaten an entire bag of Licorice Allsorts !!! Especially those with mostly black in it. You either love those, or you hate'em. Fair warning. I love'em. But even then...

Thankfully, B*men does eventually cease shoving Allsorts through my nose, and mellow out into something vaguely like a gourmand version of YSL Body Kouros: Resinous woods, with heavy spice, and rich anise(y) sweetness (I'm not saying they smell the same tho). Where Body Kouros' sweetness is restrained by the eucalyptus which cools it; B*men's not into kinky restraints, at ALL. Nope. In fact, he'd rather put on some dapper duds and treat you to a 5* gourmet dinner at an elegant restaurant ; )

O, and don't forget to bring along the Allsorts.

Peppery way of life
Lots of licorice and spices with below average lasting power, sillage and projection.

After some hours the spices calm down and then there's a nice sweet note that remains untill it fades.

Suitable for autumn and fall. Sweet but not overpowering.

Good scent, but i will not miss it.

A daring superhero
Instead of the chocolate accord in A*Men, B*Men is more focused on the licorice and the spices.

While I love both fragrances, I do believe that B*Men is much more wearable, and a better seller overall. It's a nice combination of sweet and spicy, with a very subtle gourmand feel throughout.

Sexy, a little daring and very Thierry Mugler in its style, B*Men delivers. The incredibly earthy and woodsy drydown may be too much for some, especially those that hate patchouli in large doses, however I enjoyed the drydown the most.

A little does go a long way in regards to wearing B*Men. Like all Thierry Mugler fragrances, the sillage and lasting power never disappoints, in fact it is often so powerful that it leaves you breathless.

The leather note in this fragrance isn't as strong as I expected to be. I guess you could say that it has been overshadowed by the sugar and spices. Although I like this fragrance the way it is, a bit more on the leather side of things would have given this fragrance more of a bite.

It's difficult to sum up this rather complex fragrance in a few words, however if I really had to, B*Men would be defined as a masculine vanilla scent with rich, syrupy woods and licorice accords.
