    I don't have a habit of buying unsniffed,but was veeery tempted by Nahema...And luckily I love it! Other unsniffed scents that I just bought was all my Ava Luxes: Rasa,Love's true bluish light and Madame X. Particularly happy about the Madame X.

    Isn't Lush's avatar great - now are those split peas or mushy peas? The pea pod garnish on top looks pretty intact, certainly.

    I am wearing Kohdo Wood Day today and if I had bought it unsniffed I would have been very pleased with my purchase! I just got to sniff Sweet Lime and Cedar in Manchester this morning. Have decided it is a beautiful smell, and am still unsure whether it is a beautiful smell that I want to smell of. I keep coming back to Walkers Sensations Gently Infused Lime and Thai Spices crisps, which taste exactly as this smells!

    Rhubarb! That's what's in the EA Green Tea! I knew it was something familiar, but couldn't place it until now...thanks!

    I also think that EAGT is one of those spray-all-over-on-a-really-hot-day kinds of scents; nothing I'd wear to a party, but fine for a July morning when I'm hanging around the house.

    I've bought lots of unsniffed, nearly all decants, but only after knowing what kinds of scents they were. My list would include (among others): Vol de Nuit, Jo Malone Woman, Sycomore, A Rose Poivree, Carnal Flower, Fleurs de Cassie, Jolie Madame (vintage), Eau de Cartier, Angelique Encens, CDG's incense series, Un Jardin Sur le Nil, Miss Dior (vintage)...others, usually in 1.5 ml decants, sometimes swaps.

    Not many FB's though. I took a chance on Paloma Picasso, completely unsniffed at TJ Maax, and love it. Also Turquoise, a serviceable summer fragrance, also at Maax; don't love it quite as much, but it'll do. Bought a FB of Grey Flannel there too, for my husband; I love it on me, he doesn't like it quite so much, says it's too strong for work, but he does like the Eau de Grey Flannel.

    I'm very tempted by some others that have been mentioned here, particularly Nahema, Sweet Lime & Cedar, and Balmain Ivoire. I think I'll test them first if I can!

    They raised the price from $24 to $32.50. Still a pretty good deal. They also threw a new bottle of Worth's Je Reviens.

    I've bought loads of decants unsniffed, but I kind of count those as 'super samplers', so feel less bad about it if I don't love them.

    I have a dreadful habit of adding 'a little something' to an order, but I'm reining myself in as I've just bought too many things that don't work for me. However, past purchases that I have fallen madly in love with include:
    Madame Rochas
    Vol de Nuit
    Jicky
    Gres Cabaret
    Le Baiser du Dragon
    Hypnotic Poison
    Bal a Versailles
    and several others that I'm sure I'll remember through the day and say 'oh and that too'.

    I have had a lot of failures though. See my swap list for a more comprehensive list of those!
