    Default Recommend a blind buy different than my current wardrobe?...

    Here is what I have:

    Armani Attitude - Was a gift, don't really care for it
    Creed Erolfa - Like it, wish I had bought Himalaya instead though
    Dolce&Gabbana PH
    YSL Rive Gauche - Not bad for the price

    I am considering going with a Bond for a blind buy, probably Bleeker Street. I also may splurge for Wall Street but not sure if I want to buy that one blind. I am trying to round out my collection as it seems I have an overlap in 'summer' scents. Not saying I wouldn't take a fresh scent for my next purchase though. With Christmas coming up I will probably have a chance to get a couple bottles.

    How many times have we said this here? 30,000+, blind buys are always a bad idea, period, end of story.

    BTW, Bond No. 9 has a great sampling program for only $10.00.

    Thanks y'all, but I have no problem with blind buys. I can Ebay, trade it, etc. Even if I hang on to it it's not the world and wouldn't stop me from blind buying again.

    Santal Imperial 1850- Creed
    Air du désert marocain- Tauer
    Jubilation XXV- Amouage
    Wall street- Bond No9 (maybe)
    Blenheim Bouquet- Penhaligon

    Knowing what i know now, these are the ones i would definitely get. (if i had the money)

    If money isn't an issue, here are you blind buy's.
    I can't see anyone hating any of these. Worst case scenario you'll think they are OK scents. But i think you'll like/love them. Selling them on ebay you could probably even make a profit if your lucky.

    The critic has to educate the public; the artist has to educate the critic.

    It's actually up to 15 bucks now w/ shipping and includes your choice of 6 scents. I just ordered it the other day.

    i'd like to echo that blind buys are retarded...

    if you look in my wardrobe, i have LOT's of stuff that i'm not too ecstatic about and i don't regularly wear. When i first started out i wanted to add to my collection, now i carefully try different things out and after a few weeks of research i purchase. This will save you lots of money because you'll actually have a wardrobe that you will love & wear.
