    Default Help me choose some samples on the lucky scent

    Hello everyone,
    just discovered,thanks to the forum,the lucky scent web site.Looking forward to ordering some samples from it but need suggestions on what to choose.I'll list some of my favorite fragrances and I hope you can point me to the right direction )))))
    So,the most memorable fragrances for the last couple of years were: D&G The One and Gucci Pour Homme II. I also liked Very Irresistible by Givenchy.My last one,London by Burberry,was also OK.
    So,what's your suggestions?
    Thanks in advance!

    Van Cleef & Arpels - Cologne Noire Eau de Parfum

    Mark Birley For Men

    Le Labo - Rose 31

    The above are all woody fragrances. Minimally, try the Rose 31 if only because it's discussed so frequently around here.

    Gendarme - Gendarme Eau de Cologne - Ultra clean, soapy, clean sheets

    All of these are pleasant fragrances, easy to like for the beginning nose

    While I'm sure many people here will suggest some hardcore niche stuff, which is Luckyscent's specialty, it might be a huge jump from D&G The One to Timbuktu or Lutens.

    I'd say either start off with the friendlier niche stuff like Creed (Green Irish Tweed, Millesime Imperial, Original Vetiver, and maybe Bois du Portugual as a good example of their classic) and maybe By Kilian's Back To Black. The Comme des Garcons Incense line is just the right amount of weird, especially if you like woody scents.

    If you're interested in Basenote's Greatest Hits, you might also check out Serge Lutens Chergui (probably the easiest of the line) and Tauer's L'Eau Du Desert Marocain. Amouage Jubilation XXV is another big hit here, as is Diptyque's Tam Dao. Also, everyone loves Le Labo Rose 31.

    With that, you'll at least know a bunch of the really obscure frags that everyone talks about here all the time. And they're all quite good and worth a sniff...
    Has everyone checked out my Top 100 Blog??

    Based on the scents you like I can recommend:

    Amouage Reflection - Have you ever wondered what heaven might smell like? Well, this is it. I've never again had a scent related experience that compares to my first sniff of this. This is clean smelling and yet very very refined and luxurious. The composition is unique and evolves considerably over the course of the day, but it's not as ostensibly "far out there" as so many niche scents can be. In other words, this scent is easier to like than some of the downright weird niche like say, Serge Noire, which can smell a bit like grilled onions and fireplace ashes mixed with cinnamon. Reflection however always smells extremely elegant and luxurious, and shares notes and feel with both Gucci PH II and The One. Larzwiz, a member here who absolutely loves GPH II recently discovered Reflection and absolutely loves it as well, too. I say that only because it lends some credence to the idea that someone who loves GPH II and The One is very likely to also enjoy, if not love, Reflection. Luckyscent does a nice write up of Reflection that I feel is pretty accurate - http://www.luckyscent.com/shop/secti...ction_Man.html

    Since you love Gucci PH II (cinnamon/violet) and The One (orange blossom, ginger, woods), I'd highly recommend you check out Matire Parfumeur et Gantier's Bois de Turquie ( http://www.luckyscent.com/shop/secti...e_Turquie.html ). It features an opening of spices and orange blossom, a heart of violet/iris and also a spice presence with ginger and bay leaf and cinnamon (even tho cinnamon isn't listed, there is something that smells cinnamon like), over a base of light woods and incense. This scent has about the same sweetness/elegance levels as Gucci PH II and The One, another reason I think you may really like it.

    Those two are, in my opinion, two of the finest scents out of the 350+ that I've sniffed. They are generally well liked around here, too, although Bois de Turquie hasn't gotten much exposure yet. A lot of people on the boards have been discovering Reflection lately and absolutely loving it, and I think you will too. Hope that helps!

    I was in your position a couple of months ago and now I just have my work checks sent directly to luckyscent.com! Haha! I have sampled many fragrances and have found many that I like. I'm going to be conservative, and suggest you sample New York by Parfums de Nicolai. Here is the link to the BN reviews http://www.basenotes.net/ID26122067.html

    A bottle of New York was my first niche fragrance after BN suggestions and samples from luckyscent.com.

    Have fun sampling. I think it is almost as fun as buying full bottles.

    +1 on Parfums de Nicolai New York, a fantastic fragrance. I will also suggest Tom of Finland by Etat Libre d'Orange.

    My suggestion would be, check out all the brands in lucky scent. And in each brand, read the descriptions of the frags, and which ever fits your taste, get a sample or 2 (or more ).

    Try: Serge Lutens, Amoauge, Montale, Parfumerie Generale, Parfum d'Empire, Parfums de Nicolai, By Kilian, Le Labo.....I have to stop or else I will be suggesting all of them. hahahaha

    Get those samples that you cannot find in your area.

    Hi!

    I recommend getting a sample of L'Artisan Parfumeur's Tea For Two, bearing in mind you enjoy Gucci PH II.

    Lucky Scent does a great job with their descriptions. Dangerously so actually. But, it gives a "snap shot." See which catch your eye based on their descriptions, then check them out in the directory here or ask questions about specific scents.

    Lucky Scent has such a huge selection, you'll want to narrow it down.
