    Default What have you put off sampling?

    So I was thinking about this today and realized that I've put off sampling Knize Ten ever since I got into the fragrance hobby a little over two years ago. Not really sure why, it sounds like a great fragrance, just keep forgetting to make a point of it I guess. There are also others on my test list I've put off trying for quite a while but don't really know why, but Knize Ten is definitely the worst. So what are fragrances that it seems like you've put off trying forever?

    Knize Ten
    MKK - Serge Lutens
    The Amouage Attars - Tribute and Homage

    Default Re: What have you put off sampling?

    Knize Ten
    Most Amouages
    Montales
    Various others

    Reasons: 1.) Over analysis 2.) Too many choices/Higher priority frags 3.) Negative reviews 4.) Previous sampling let downs/regrets

    I've put off sampling mostly cause I didn't have samples. It can get expensive trying to send off for individual samples. Even to travel to the stores and find samples is expensive with fuels costs. Fortunately I scored a huge sample collection that will keep my nose busy for awhile. There are some though not in that collection that I would like to sample some day. A bit of sample swapping may be in the future.

    alot of the Montale Ouds (just not me and will never grow on me)

    alot of Serge Lutens, especially MKK - just gross

    various others...


    if I feel there's a chance I may feel different about it, i'll keep it and sample it again down the road.
    but some, just right off the bat, you know there's no chance whatsoever.

    I'm a sampling fiend, but I rarely sample vintage frags. I guess I think they'd be harder to find if I liked them.

    There are also a few that I've had samples of for more than a year and I just never get around to trying them. My Ineke sample pack is gathering dust as we speak... No reason, just haven't bothered yet.
    Has everyone checked out my Top 100 Blog??

    A*men.
    The descriptions of this don't really grab me as being something I'd like. But I am keen to see what the fuss is about.

    This, including reasons, minus the Knize Ten.
    Others include PdN, Le Labo and Chanel+Guerlain exclusives all due to inavailability.
