    Re: Overrated...

    That happened to me. Some of the 1st niche fragrances I ever sampled were LDDM, Ambre Precieux, MDO Vetyver, Jub XXV. Thought Jub was nice but didn't really care for any of them.

  6. Re: Anyone ever smelt any cheap dollar/pound store fragrances?

    I've smelled some a few years aback, before I got into this hobby. Even then I thought they were repulsive.

    Re: Spraying or daubing, there IS a difference

    I've heard others say this, which is why I always transfer samples to atomizers before applying. Plus, samples are easier to apply for a daily wear that way.
  26. Re: I don't care for the majority of fragrances I've tried

    i think that's kinda normal. i can only see myself wearing 40-50% of the frags I've tried. but i only really enjoy like 10% of them.
