    A good perfume. Yes.
    A good blind buy. Not for you.
    There's a plethora of differences between Chergui and One million.
    Definitely try it first.

    The price of Chergui makes a blind buy inadvisable, unless you like high stakes gambling.

    Please sample. I like this scent a good deal, but it's not everyone's cup of tea. An you can have a sensitivity to it, to boot.

    Do you wallet a favor and test before you purchase.

    No, it's not a good blind buy - make sure to test it first!

    No fragrance that costs $125+ is a safe blind buy IMO. Find a sample or decant first!

    I would almost always agree with this. The one exception I can think of is Pure Malt. If you like gourmands, a blind buy is HIGHLY recommended. ;-)

    I did make an exception for this one since I knew if I didn't like it I could sell it for near what I paid for it, if not more, which is exactly what happened.

    Absolutely not a good blind buy. Now, I don't believe in blind buys anyway, but Chergui is a very distinctive scent. Yes, it has some lovely tobacco and smoke and honey, but it also has some bitterness, some spices that you may or may not like, and a strong "old musty house" vibe. I like it. You might hate it. Don't risk it.

    Definitely try it before you buy it. I have to be in the mods to wear it. I can see how some people get the grandma vibe from it. It seems most fragrances I wear once and dislike I end up trying them again and liking it. I would suggest a 5ml decant or something of this. You should be able to find one on here or EBay.

    Nope. This one is hard to stomach unless you have a gigantic sweet tooth.
