    Ordered some samples from scentmonkey.com. We'll see how they are:

    Bvlgari extreme

    Vetiver

    Terre D' Hermes

    M7

    Emporio

    Herrera

    Versace man

    Polo Double Black

    Polo sport

    and lastly ofcourse...Chrome.

    Thanks again..more to try out at Nordstroms I guess. All came out to 30 and change w/ shipping.

    Ten samples for $30 seems way too much, particularly since many of those are currently available in the stores.

    I think ten samples for $30 is a good deal. If it saves you from even one unwise blind buy, you come out ahead.

    I've paid more than $30 for ten samples...however, I think they were for higher priced fragrances than the ones listed above.

    Ava Luxe sells mosts of it's samples for $2 each...but Luckyscent can charge as much as $6 or $7 for some of the parfum samples of the 'niche' stuff

    It's a fair deal. Although you could've tested them in a store, you have the advantage of wearing each fragrance at least a couple of times. This allows you to test for personal fit and longevity before purchasing a bottle.

    Yea, I agree. It's worth the money than blind buying and I have these little samples to use at my leasure ya know.

    In the end 32 bucks is a lot better than 120 and above for something you buy impulsively.

    The thing is that when you find out another 10 you heard about OR that fits your notes you like you can pick another 10.

    The whole thing is to get to the nitty gritty..lol, find out how the top 10 and theres your list of colognes for a birthday present or Xmas or whatever.

    I take what you all suggested and I ordered them, it's better than getting a smirk or an agitated look if you keep going back to the Dept store to just "Try" a scent..lol. If you do not buy sometimes they get an attitude.

    Good suggestions by the way, hopefully I'll get this this week sometime, dying to try Terre D' Hermes and the like.
