Pure Shot Cologne Bottle
The Pure Shot bottle is similar to the rest of the Thierry Mugler mens cologne line. It comes in the similar plastic flask with the glass star in the middle. Pure Shot comes with a white flask and a deep blue liquid. It projects an image of freshness and overall is one of the best looking bottles from Thierry Mugler. The sprayer issues that are found in all the Mugler bottles is still here, but on my bottle doesn’t seem as bad as others. I’m not sure if they made a internal design change or I just was lucky.
Thierry Mugler Pure Shot Mens Cologne Review
If you are familiar with any of the other Thierry Mugler fragrances like Pure Malt or Pure Havane then you’re in for a surprise here. Pure Shot was created to be a warm weather fragrance, a big departure from his previous editions. There is no A*Men DNA in this one and is in no way a gourmand fragrance. There has been a lot of reviews of Pure Shot as it was recently released and almost all of them have been negative. Personally, I feel like it is getting a negative review for not being what they wanted/thought it would be as opposed to actually looking at the fragrance on its own merits. Pure Shot opens with a burst of fresh and off the bat tells you this is going to be different. This isn’t a heavy citrus blast nor is it a blast of aqua. Its more of a sweet mint that is very refreshing. After an hour or so you get a bit of the juniper berry which bring a slight floral note mixed with the patchouli base. This is a rather linear fragrance and only projects for an hour or two.
Pure Shot Cologne Uses
The biggest complaint I have with Pure Shot is it’s longevity and projection. If you have read any of my previous reviews you will notice that cologne’s projection and longevity are just as important as the smell. With Pure Shot I am averaging four to five hours of projection before it is totally gone. The first two hours the fragrance is projecting rather well, but after that it becomes very close to the skin. This cologne isn’t going to be something you’re going to want to wear to a formal event or on a date. It is best used as a daily wear cologne in the summer or possibly the spring. I think the hotter the temperature the better, as it will help this cologne project. The coolness of the mint will work wonderfully in the hot weather. I think any age can wear this cologne and be happy with it as it is not specifically geared towards the younger or older crowd.
If you’re looking for a fresh cologne that will work extremely well in hot and humid weather then this is a cologne I’d highly recommend. If you want something that is similar to the other Thierry Mugler colognes then please take warning before purchasing. Because of the longevity issues compared to the $90 price tag I have to give
