    Just because it happened to you doesn't make it interesting.

    A lot of my fragrances were blind buys. If I must name three, here they are in no particular order:

    Eau De Soir by Sisley

    Grey Flannel, Halston Z14, Francesco Smalto pour Homme - however, not entirely blind buys, since reviews and threads on Basenotes helped me shape up at least a partially accurate image of these scents, which, surprisingly, corresponded to the qualities and strengths of these scents.
