    Default Looking to buy some samples

    Yes, I realize there are other threads on this, but I could not find "common" colognes (things like polo blue, bvlgari aqua, etc) at sites like lucky scent and the perfumed court, so where is it best to look for samples of these types of more mainstream colognes

    I'd like to to sample some/most of the following:
    Polo blue
    polo explorer? how is this one? i couldn't find much info on it..
    burberry london
    bvlgari aqua
    allure sport
    l'eau d'issey vs. bleue vs. intense?
    pi
    chrome
    dunhill pursuit
    live jazz
    jean paul gaultier

    any advice on any of these or any recommendations on something else to try would be much appreciated. I think a lot of these fall into similar categories, and if you can't tell by that list, I am college aged...

    Thanks for any help you have to offer

    I would have said Sephora or the closest department store...then I saw where you were from. You could try the nice ppl here on basenotes. Some of them are pretty nice and don't mind sharing/sending their fragrances to ppl. However with your location it may take awhile.

    I am from usa, and would, if at all possible, be looking to order online, all I have found that is somewhat decent is fragrencenet, because I found a coupon to get $10 off a purchase of $35+

    and I will update my country right now haha

    I agree with the suggestion you were given-- try Macy's, Nordstrom, Sephora, Lord & Taylor...I've gotten samples at all these. If you don't have any of these stores near you, just visit whatever department store is in your area.

    So by not mentioning anything about the internet are you saying that there's really no good place to find these at a decent price online?

    I've found some reasonably affordable mainstream fragrance samples at www.fragrancenet.com. They don't have samples for everything, but it might be worth checking it out.
