Hi my lovely Basenoters! I know you all are the perfect people to ask.

My brother in law got excited about scents while on our vacation to Europe. He was a bit overwhelmed by the choices since all we typically get around here are the designer scents. He wound up buying Montale's Lime Aoud, and is thrilled with it. He wanted something he wouldn't smell on anyone else around here, and that's pretty wide open since anything even sort of niche you'd have to go to Chicago for.

I'm so excited to have a potential ally in the "oooh lets go sniffing!" game, so I would love to buy him a sample pack from Surrender to Chance. He's pretty open to unusual, as evidenced by his pick of Lime Aoud. He's also pretty metro, and has very great style. He got a sample of Ambre Sulton with his purchase and liked that, even though he said he didn't really like spicy.

Here's what I have to start:

PdN New York

Hermes Terre d'Hermes

Creed Aventus (because omg, have you seen the guys board?)

Guerlain Habit Rouge

Creed GIT

Lalique Encre Noir

Guerlain Vetiver

Diptyque Vetyverio

Dior Eau Sauvage

Tom Ford Oud Wood

Creed Millesime Imperial

Thanks for your help everyone!
