    I blind bought Serge Lutens' Arabie and Douce Amere yesterday and it was totally worth it. I love Serge Lutens' creations with a passion that far exceeds anything else though. In general I do not recommend blind buying SL fragrances.

    I blind bought Gucci Pour Homme II.

    I'd do it again. Spectacular fragrance.

    Old thread but what the heck. Maybe it needs a few updates.

    I no longer blind buy but my most successful was probably Rive Gauche PH.

    I dont blind buy unless forced.
    Best ones from the past with little chance of regret by other buyers:

    Pal Zileri - Sartoriale
    Lalique - White

    Great scents, very affordable, likable, easily wearable.

    My best was pure malt because it smells like I just bathed in the finest scotch I have ever smelt.

    L'air du desert marocain

    Bought it blind, but did read about it first enough to decide that it would be a good bet.

    Worn it a few times, love it and I could easily get a backup bottle.

    My best blind buys?


    1. Aventus - Technically I had a sample but i ordered a bottle before I smelled that sample. Recommend? absolutely, accept no substitute......yet.

    2. Parfums demarly herod and godolphin - Both are amazing. Herod is a cherry tobacco and godolphin is like a fruity cocaineless tuscan leather. But amazing and worth every penny. Highly recommended.

    3. Tabac Roug - Maybe not a complete blind buy as it was rumored to be very close to tobacco vanille which it is and I had smelled but its the best tobacco frag I have ever owned so far.

    4. Creed GIT - Nuff said

    5. Creed Original Vetiver- Best right after a shower to relax and feel good. Really would work well after being on a boat after watersports. Just my opinion. Great stuff and also recommended.

    6. Pure malt - There might as well be a bright white blinding light as you open the box on this one. Pure coffee and pure havane are close seconds.

    7. 24 gold- Amazing. Probably the best sub $50 fragrance I have ever owned.




    And for good old S&G I have to say my WORST was Encre Noir and Narsico Rodriguez. Both are the epitome of death in olfactory form.
