    Default Maison Francis Kurkdjian - which ones are worth trying?

    I'm going to order Lumiere Noire Homme which I really love. I also saw they're offering samples - four samples for 12 EUR, so I was thinking of getting four samples too. Which are worth trying?

    I'm thinking of:
    • APOM Homme
    • Acqua Universalis Forte
    • OUD
    • Amyris Homme

    Is that a good selection?

    These are the rest:
    • Acqua Universalis - I guess it's the same as Forte, but weaker?
    • Absolue Pour le Matin
    • Absolue Pour le Soir
    • Cologne Pour le Matin
    • Cologne Pour le Soir

    ^^^These would be my picks. I've not tried Amyris Homme yet so I can't comment on that one.

    Amyris is a good one, worth a try. What alfarom said is a good list, though I'm not an AU fan myself. Don't waste your time with the Colognes, go for the Absolues of both for sure. And Lumiere Noire Pour Homme, also a quality scent.
    Splits!

    Is it very different from the absolue-version? Worth trying both?

    It completely lacks the animalic facet so it could result easier to wear, more versatile.

    Absolue Soir
    APOM Homme
    Aqua Universalis Forte
    OUD - or Amyris Homme, this last is upto you.

    But the first three are the best of what he has to offer!

    So where do you place Lumiere Noire? That's the only one I have tried so far, and I think it's wonderful.

    I think Lumiere Noire is his best. The only one I own from the house, although I really enjoy APOM pour Homme (only don't have it cause I bought Kobe instead), and the Oud is very well-done. I also haven't given Amyris a fair shake yet, either.

    Thank you so much for your generosity but I'll surely have the chance to test it pretty soon around here...
