    Default Which should I blind buy?

    I have a new found fondness of fragrances, in no small part thanks to this great forum!

    I've been doing some research and have whittled it down to three fragrances that really appeal to me and are not available for me to go and sample in any stores nearby. They are...

    Midnight in Paris - Van Cleef & Arpels
    Donna Karan - Fuel for men
    Halston Man Amber

    This my current (very modest) collection of favoured scents...

    YSL l'homme and la nuit
    L'occitane eau de baux
    Boss bottled (signature scent for years - before I got the 'fragrance bug')
    Givenchy Pi
    Viktor & Rolf spicebomb
    Armani attitude and acqua di Gio
    Chanel allure

    I can't test the three mentioned above but all three really appeal to me, which one would you go for, or more importantly... Which one do you think I might like best?

    Pardon, but your signature says you're in London. Loads of shops in London sell Midnight in Paris (Selfridges, Debenhams, House of Fraser, Liberty...). And I think Fuel is at Harrods. Is it not possible to go?

    I'm staying in Brighton at the moment. Wasn't aware that debenhams did MiP, just looked on their site... You're right! Might go and try that today if I can.

    I know Harrods has the other two but I'm not in London any time soon.

    The only one I have tried from the 3 mention is MIP, and I didn't care for it. To me it smell more like a women perfume. Weak, non interesting and a bit too feminine.
