Thread: Ordering samples - Advice?
I want to order 5 samples from www.ausliebezumduft.com.
The reason I pick them is because I like the shipping cost (5 euro) and I think the samples are reasonably priced (+-3euro).
I am already sure of these 2 scents:
-Acqua di Parma – Colonia Intensa for Men
-Andy Tauer - L'Air du désert marocain
Now I still want to pick 3 other fragrances. The problem is that I'm puzzled in what to take since i have an interest in quite a lot of fragrances.
I want to pick at least 1 from Caron, but I just have no clue which one to chose from this list:
So after a Caron fragrance, there are still 2 to go.Caron
Pour un Homme de Caron
Le 3e Homme
Here is my list of fragrances and brands I have interest in (to bad they don't have Frederic Malle Musc Ravageur ):
Actually, I want to have a "must have" sample package with fragrances every Basenoter should at least try once. And I think there are some on my lists so I hope some one can help me chose.Bois 1920
Comme des Garçons
Czech & Speake
Niche samples I already own:
Montale - Black Aoud , White Aoud , Aoud Lime
l'Artisan Parfumeur - Tea for two, Timbuktu, Dzing!
Other advise from other brands or based on my wardrobe is also welcome!

Just one opinion, but your wardrobe looks sort of modern and light (not that I'm attacking that).
So, for something different, Caron 3rd Man is deceptively strong, "pretty" and unique.
No. 88 is kind of gothic and rosey. Way different than your wardrobe.
Knize 10 is classic, dark, heavy, borderline kinky and pretty potent.
Spend another 9 Euros and get a some more!
Colonia Intensa is Terre d'Hermès' second cousin. Cedar instead of earthy.
3rd Man or Pour un Homme de Caron(lots of lavender)
Geo. F. Trumper - Eau de Cologne or Portugal(if you like orange rind). Both good summer frags.
Gendarme (about as clean and light as it gets). This one is the safest office scent around.
C&S 88 is like the video clip below. Definitely worth trying.

Well first of all, thank you actiasluna, StylinLA and adonis for your help.
But I really feel I should try the special ones. my SOTD today is Rive Gauche and I'm enjoying it tremendously. It's time to get a bit more away from the usuals.
At the moment, Knize Ten and 3rd Man are my favorites.
No. 88 kind of scares me now, I don't know why.
The website says the sending cost will increase when you order more then 5, but I wonder if that is already happening from the sixth sample.... Anyone with experience?
