That is to say, how do you make a decision as to what fragrance you will sample next? As a person living in a town with very limited perfume counters, most of my real sampling comes from ordering samples from the various sites that provide those.
Recently, I've been considering the purchase of some sample coffrets to get a larger sense of the varying fragrances. I find myself feeling rather limited by .5ml vial samples and having a bit of trouble really getting a good sense of whether I like the fragrance. In addition, coffrets featuring 5-7ml would last and actually provide a broader wardrobe in lieu of FBs.
What I'm particularly wrestling with is that I want it all.....NOW PLEASE! Well clearly that is not reasonable, so I need some kind of system to keep myself focused.
I'd love to hear how you all approached this phase of your journey. How do you decide what to invest in regarding sampling? Do you have a schedule/dollar amount/notes? How do you decide what you want to experience and when you'll have the opportunity?
