    Default Looking for new ideas, to sample..


    I am about to go on a sample "binge," of sorts, and am therefore looking for some quality scents to try out. I think I am going to get about 50 samples, so any good ideas I'll probably try out.

    I'm young (20), and am obviously looking for stuff that fits people my age..

    I like aromatic and fougere frangrances, but I guess with these samples, I am also going for spread.. so suggestions for summer wear, winter wear, formal wear, office wear, etc.. are more (important?)

    Woodsy stuff tends to not work well with me.

    That sounded bad.. any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    What kind of stuff *do* you like? That might help us make some suggestions...

    What do you currently own and wear? would be a good place to start.

    I like.. Ungaro III. Of the colognes I've tried, that's pretty much the only one that has worked for me. I like aromatic, spicy, and fougere types scents.. I definitely want to rule out woodsy scents.

    Perhaps you could try some Montale scents? You can order a bunch of samples via the user named maisonstinky here on Basenotes!
