    Default 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:

    Caron
    l'Anarchiste
    Pour un Homme de Caron
    Le 3e Homme
    Yatagan
    So after a Caron fragrance, there are still 2 to go.
    Here is my list of fragrances and brands I have interest in (to bad they don't have Frederic Malle Musc Ravageur ):

    Bois 1920
    Classic 1920
    1920 Extreme
    Sushi Imperiale

    Comme des Garçons
    8 88
    Odeur 71
    Odeur 53

    Czech & Speake
    Cuba
    No. 88
    Neroli

    Diptyque
    Tam Dao

    Knize
    Knize Ten

    LesNez
    Antimatière

    Lorenzo Villoresi
    Uomo

    Gendarme
    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.

    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!

    From Caron try Yatagan ... or Pour un Homme

    And... Knize Ten

    That's my advice, anyway.

    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.

    You are actually very right, my wardrobe is pretty "safe" and modern, with the exception of Terre d'Hermes, Rive Gauche and Envy. Those are not really "safe" since I am 22 years old.
    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.

    Okay , I can already remove Gendarme from my list since I don't want a very clean and light fragrance at this moment. Thanks a lot!

    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?
