    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.
    If you are one of those people who insist on paying full retail......Please check out my for sale thread.
