    Where do you buy your samples?

    Where do you all buy your samples? I am looking at some on ebay, but I'm always wary of buying things there. I'd love to hear suggestions!

    Re: Ysatis Iris??

    Cool...thanks for the info!

    I, too, find the original Ysatis a bit much for every-day wear. It's very powerful. But I love it.

    I'm heading to ebay right now. :)
