hello and welcome.
i had problems looking for scents i liked as well. the problem was limiting myself to what my gender said i should wear. i hate sweet or floral... that pretty much eliminates womens fragrances. i wear mostly mens or unisex fragrances.
the point here is to not limit your choices. amber is a popular note in mens fragrances.
i have recently discovered, being relatively new to this too, commes de garcon, kyoto and guerlain's vetiver. i also like to wear an old favorite of mine, the men's burbery london. this one has a hint of vanillia, but mainly a lavendar, amber smell. burberry has a few choices you may like. you said you ordered samples from luckyscent. they are terrific, and ordering samples is the least expensive way to discover what you like and do not like...
