    Welcome!
    For classics and hard-to-find samples like your examples, I would recommend The Perfumed Court. For partial bottles our own Market Place here.

    Alot of online retailers offer samples for sale. Check out ScentedMonkey.com, Luckyscent.com, and the above-mentioned PerfumedCourt.

    The Perfumed Court or Lucky Scent are good. The marketplace here on Basenotes is also very useful. I have a couple of your listed fragrances for swaps...

    The Crystal Flacon is also great for samples, decants etc http://flacon.ambaric.net

    I find Luckyscent's samples both kind of stingy (.7 ml to 1 ml vials usually... I need at least 1.5-2 mls for a good "test") and somewhat pricey. TPC does great decants but is also pricey... and there are a few others, Rei Rien does decants (but I've had some issues with shipping time with their decants.) Of course, all three of those are still a good way to get sample size decants of some of the rarer, pricier scents, but I think if I am going to do that I'll try the house first. The OP didn't ask about this house but for example, Juliette Has A Gun's sample set is generous (2 ml samples, the four "nonexclusive" scents for just under 5 euros plus fair shipping (I think I paid maybe $12 US delivered for the four) and a good value for the money *in comparison Luckyscent's JHAG sample cost $3 for .7 mls.*

    So it pays to shop around.
