Flankers get a bad rap. Often they are mindless reinterpretations captitalizing on the initial fragrance’s popularity without a soul. An exception to this is the Mugler A*Men series and the reason is that isPerfumer Jacques Huclier (he created A*Men in1996, one of the first gourmands for men). M. Huclier understands the DNA and with every re-exploration he finds an exciting way to reinvent the original. He has been the perfumer behind the “Pure Series”: Pure Ice, Pure Coffee (with Christine Nagel), Pure Shot, Pure Ice, Pure Tonka, Pure Malt, Pure Havane, A*Men Pure Energy, A*Men Pure Shot, A*Men Ultra Zest (with Quentin Bisch), Ice*Men, A*Men Sunessence Orage d’ete and B*Men (with Christine Nagel, 2004). M.Huclier’s understanding of the brand’s DNA is what sets every A*Men flanker apart; great fragrances that stand on their own merit.

The newest Jaques Huclier/Mugler collaboration is the 2017 limited edition A*men Kryptomint, (which when I first read about the release, I couldn’t help but think of Superman and Kryptonite; on the Mugler site they state that Thierry Mugler loved ’50s comic superheroes so there you have it).-Michelyn Camen, Editor in Chief
Contributor Sebastian Jara of the YouTube Channel Looking Feeling Smelling Great, and founder of a popular Facebook Group reviews Kryptomint which continues the run of really great Mugler Flankers. Amen.
