    Default I'm desperate for something new

    I need something new and was hoping for some direction. First by some recommendations and next with a site that can mail me some samples to help me decide on a purchase. I have the following:


    GIT - Creed
    Le Dandy - D'Orsay
    Issey Miyake
    Le Male - Gaulthier
    VS for Men

    This place is great, so thx for any and all input.

    Does it have to be a fragrance for a special occasion (something to wear at the office) or a particalur type of weather (is it extremely hot and humid where you live)? Or do you desire something for everyday use?

    Take a look around at Frederic Malle's and send them a mail, they're very helpful and will send you 2 or 3 samples. Let me recommend Musc Ravageur.

    Do the same for l'Artisan Parfumeur and they will also send you a few samples. Voleur de Roses, Tea for Two and Timbuktu are -to me- their most 'special' ones.

    You can also send mails to Caron, Amouage, Geo F. Trumpers and you'll receive response relatively quick.

    Hehe, how long's a piece of string? Have you owned fragrance previously? Do you have a budget in mind? In what sorts of situations are you looking to wear it? What do you like? Light, heavy, woody, fruity...?

    Firstly, get along to a perfumery, department store, chemist, anything that may sell perfumes. Ask to test, and test away. Try and involve the sales assistant as much as possible, as they generally have knowledge on the subject, and buttering them up would make them more receptive to further testing.

    Just follow your nose.
