Let the samples do the talking, and try not to make a purchase based on hype. Remember that scent is a matter of taste which in turn influences your willingness to shell out money for that particular fragrance. I have sampled Tobacco Vanille, Noir de Noir, Amber Absolute, Tuscan Leather, Neroli Portofino, and Black Violet. They are all quality juice and you are bound to find at least one that you like from the Private Blend line. I was blown away by Tuscan Leather and Noir de Noir, which are full bottle worthy in my opinion.
