I just purchased a bottle of Heritage on the net blind. I understand that it's a mature, woody, semi sweet fragrance but that's all I know of it so far. Btw, I bought it because it was only 11$US for a 50mL bottle ;D
Do you buy just because it's cheap? Strange to spend money on things you don't know.[/quote]
Heh, I do this all the time
at least, if I see something that is cheap, I research it, and if it appeals to me I buy blind. I consider myself a very low-risk person so for me this kind of behavior gives me excitement, I suppose how a less cowardly person would feel about sky-diving or bungee jumping! OK not really.
Ditto. Â*I have very little access to fragrances and although I buy lots of samples, there are many fragrances I buy blind--like about 90%--the cheaper ones. Â*I have received excellent advice from fellow basenoters and I have learned that there are certain basenoters who have much the same perception of fragrances as I, and since they have better noses than I, it's probably safer to listen to them than to me. Â*Several of my favorites I wouldn't have bought had I tested them--Bvlgari Pour Homme, Givenchy Gentleman, Knize Ten, Gucci Nobile, Guerlain Vetiver, Chrome, Halston Unbound, Live Jazz, Lanvin L'Homme, and especially KOUROS!-- but now I have smelled them in long term operation and have learned to love them. Â*Others I loved at first testing-- Bvlgari Blv, Yatagon, Tsar, Carven Vetiver--I never touch because I just didn't like the way they served me after wearing them for several weeks.
Besides, it's MY money.
