    Default 287 Samples Later...What Next?

    Been through a load of samples, what would you recommend I try next based ones the I liked best...?

    • Byredo - Pulp
    • Creed - SMW
    • Creed - GIT
    • Creed - Aventus
    • John Varvatos - John Varvatos
    • Rochas - Rochas Man
    • Lolita Lempicka - Au Masculine
    • Hermes - Vetiver Tonka
    • Maxims - Orphee
    • Paul Smith - London
    • Monsillage - Eau Fraiche
    • Etat - Tom of Finland
    • Hermes - Un Jardin Sur Nil
    • Le Artisan - Tea for Two
    • Bond - Gramercy Park



    Although I like the sweet stuff, I don't like it sickly sweet e.g. Aquolina's Blue Sugar made me heave. Also, I've not really gotten on with more masculine scents that are musky, woody, leather, tobacco etc. Nor ones that are too spicy - seems I lean towards the unisex/feminine

    Any recommendations? Ta!


    (ps. my wardrobe isn't up to date)

    Hmmmm....

    You seem to like intelligent fruit scents, so I'd suggest L'Artisan's Ananas Fizz.

    A lot of these are tea scents, so I'd suggest Heeley's Verveine and Guerlain Aqua Allegria (sp?) Mentafolia.

    For more vetivers, Guerlain's (of course) and Encre Noir (of course), as well as Le Labo Vetiver 46.

    For the rich aquatics, Chez Bond.

    For the gingerbread vanillas, Lutens 5 O'Clock.

    Just because everyone should try them: Musc Ravageur, Dior Eau Noire, Rose 31, Tobacco Vanille, Ambre Narguille, and maybe the more unisex incenses like Costes or 10 Corso Como.
    Has everyone checked out my Top 100 Blog??

    Have you tried any of the Dyptiques? I bet you would like Philosykos, Vetyverio and Jardin Clos

    Update it!

    If you keep some of those samples, try them again.
    Maybe you'll rediscover a great scent!
