Decant sales/swaps are forbidden here, but I was thinking about the reason. Seems like the companies are claiming that decanting might somehow misrepresent their product, so I came up with an interesting idea. Not that I want to put the time in, but suppose someone decanted what he thought were good examples of the major classifications of fragrances, but did not divulge what they were? So this person would get an ambery oriental, decant it, and just tag it as an ambery oriental. This would be done for fougere, chypre, etc. Could this person post a message in the sales or swap forums for such a kit of decants in small vials? The idea would be to give newbies an sense of what each category of fragrance was like without spending more than $20 or so.
