    Default Hi I'm new to basenote please help me picking up some sample from l'artisan

    Hi everyone.

    I've read some review about l'artisan perfume and I think it's time to try something new.
    They have like a ton of perfumes and I truly don't know where should I start.
    I am looking for something that is unique and groundbreaking for my special occasion.
    I always love gourmand scent but I don't think powdery types of fragrance suit me.
    I can't use super strong stuff because of the climate. (It's hot and humid here but now it's getting a bit colder.)
    I'm a guy but I'm enjoy using floral fragrance.

    Here is my favorite

    Jo malone lime basil and mandarin
    Jo malone nectarine blossom and honey
    Chanel bleu de chanel
    Hermessence ambre naguile
    Hermessence iris ukiyoe
    Santa maria novella rosa
    Givenchy Insense
    Dior tendre poison


    Please give me some advice any house besides l'artisan is fine.

    Thank you

    Dzongkha
    Dzing!
    Timbuktu

    Dzongkha has a beautiful floral component. I think it might suit you.

    From L'Artisian you might like:
    TRAVERSÉE DU BOSPHORE
    AL OUDH is heavenly
    I'm not OLD...I'm VINTAGE!

    Your favorites seem to be citruses and lighter things (except Insensee, which is powerful, but is a floral).

    L'Artisan Parfumeur tends to be on the lighter side. My favorite are Timbuktu and Dzing! But perhaps these are the farther away from your likings. Dzing is an animalic leather, so I doubt you'll like it. Timbuktu a dry incense - this you may like. I also like Safran Troublant (saffrony creamy).

    I recommend you try Batucada. Citrusy floral, perfect for hot weather.

    I think Dzing, Dzongka, and Timbuktu are must-try scents if you're serious about sampling the L'Artisan line.

    My personal favorites are Fou d'Absinthe, Traversee du Bosphore, and Al Oudh.

    Thank you everyone for the suggestion, I greatly appreciate your kindness.

    How about a lab on fire ?
    I think "What we do in Paris" seems to be the interesting one.

    Thanks again

    I haven't tried Lab On Fire but yes, that does sound like an interesting one!

    Maybe since you like a bit of citrus, maybe that Seville A L'Aube from L'artisan?
