Arvi, I ordered some designer sampler packs in late 2004. The only one I've tested (or recall testing) is Cadolle No. 9 type, and it's a beauty. Without comparing right now to assess the differences, I'll just say that it's a little different from the Le No. 9 Cadolle I have but not at all in a bad way. The DSH duplicate may be more like the Le No. 9 Cadolle parfum or edp (whichever strength it comes in) but I only have it in edt. So it could be spot-on to the parfum or edp.
I'm glad you posted this thread -- it's a wakeup call for me to get those DSH sampler packs out and get busy sniffing! Here's what I have:
