So maybe a few weeks ago I was in Sephora and asked them if they would make me some Allure Homme Sport in a sample from their tester. While sampling it projected very well, was strong and lasted all day, so much so that I finished the entire sample (about 2 days worth) and purchased a full bottle. Opened the full bottle did my regular sprays and the fragrance only lasted maybe 3 hours with no projection at all!!!! I ended up returning it.
Recently I have went through 1 and a half official samples of Bond no.9 Coney Island and really enjoy it, performance was amazing. Just recently purchased a bottle from fragrancenet and I'm wearing it today. Juice smells exactly the same, but it doesn't smell as potent and I'm not getting the same projection I was from the sample. I will keep this though because it was a good price and I really enjoy the juice and it still projects and produces sillage.
So my question is do you guys believe that official samples and testers may be a little more potent than bottles to purchase??? Possibly for the sake of someone testing it out and wanting to purchase once they see that it performs wonderfully......speak on it!
