I've learned that there is no such thing as a safe blind buy (unless it's super cheap of course). Unfortunately since this "hobby" is so very subjective, even reviews cannot be trusted. For instance, one fragrance that gets great reviews, Chanel Egoiste, smells like super powerful mosquito spray to me. Always sample if at all possible. Also, I am sorry to say that I have not tried any of the frags you mentioned. Good luck.
