    Hey everyone, so I was walking through a small mall near where I live and noticed a little perfume shop. So I looked around and they had quite a few harder to find frags that I have heard about around here and I was wondering what you think I should get. I can't sample them and I know I should before buying but I don't mind a little risk. I have read up on them and they all seem to be up my alley though. So here are the ones that popped out, please share your opinions on them.

    Insense - Givenchy ~$40/(half size, 50ml?)
    Gucci pour homme original 1976 ~$39/30ml

    Also saw a pure malt for $105, not a great price as compared to online shops but I'd rather get it in the brick and morter store, so should I get the two small vintage bottles or the pure malt? Thanks for your thoughts guys!

    Ultimately it boils down to your personal preferences, but if it were me making the purchase I'd go for the two vintage bottles and skip the Pure Malt.

    Immediately grab ALL available bottles of Gucci 1976.

    Outstanding quality with highest-rate, no cheap ingredients, aged at least 35 years like an old whisky, and almost impossible to find now.

    Priceless.

    Gucci 1976 is a fantastic scent mine is long gone but would love another bottle

    Tough choice as all are nice IMO. Can't miss with any IMO.

    I love Insense, it's a masculine green floral, very dry and assertive. It is not impossible to find, but it usually goes for twice as much as that, so I'd definitely get it - you'll be able to sell if if you really dislike it.

    Yeah you could get your money back on Insense if you didn't like it. I actually tested it for the first time recently. It's decent, but I was a somewhat let down compared to my expectations/high hopes.

    Thanks a lot for the opinions guys, I'm thinking I'll get the vintage scents over the pure malt

    Holy cow. Grab that Gucci. You may not like it, but you'll be able to swap it. Just make sure you specify it's the 1976 version, not the 2003. You could probably swap it for something good here, and someone else will be really glad to get it. You might even be able to swap it for a bottle of Pure Malt. Now that that stuff is readily available again, prices have crashed back down to earth.

    Update: I went back and the vintage gucci bottle at the place didn't quite look close enough to the pictures I had found of it online. Does anyone have a 30ml bottle of this they could take a picture of to help me check against the bottle at the shop, it would be much appreciated!
    But anyway, I opted for the pure malt instead, I don't think those vintage bottles are hot sellers anyway so I will most likely return and get them sometime in the future.
    Any pictures of the gucci would be very helpful, especially of the bottle and atomizer if possible, thanks
