    Default Three samples have just complicated things...

    Well got a sample of Ambre Russe, Wazamba and LDDM and I thought I'd find it easy to make a decision on my final frag for a while...

    Wrong! A quick sample tells me they're all fab - so, HELP....

    I know LDDM gets a lot of love but what do you reckon - talk to me!

    All depends what you like the most but for me LDDM is the best of the three especially in the upcoming winter.

    LDDM is my favourite of the three - but not my favourite in the Tauer line in the same vein (or the one I'd buy first if I were you)
    Wazamba is my favourite out of the two Parfum D'Empire's - that's a great fragrance - I'd sample more Tauer, and buy Wazamba.

    1. LDDM
    2. Wazamba

    I didn't care for Ambre Russe at all. It was way to tea-heavy. Didn't seem to blend well with the amber at all to me.
    Current Summer Favorites:

    1. Creed - Pure White Cologne
    2. Xerjoff - Nio
    3. Dior - Homme Cologne 2013
    4. The Different Company - De Bachmakov
    5. Armani - Code Sport Athlete
    6. Ermenegildo Zegna - Sicilian Mandarin
    7. Dior - Homme Sport 2008
    8. Tom Ford - Rive d’Ambre
    9. Montale - Aoud Legacy
    10. Creed - Virgin Island Water

    I like Ambre Russe, but I LOVE L'Air Du Desert Marocain. The juice, bottle, and packaging are superb. Longevity and projection out the wazoo.

    Unfortunately, I have yet to try the other two, which I suspect I would like very much. For now, Ambre Ruse is my ultimate indulgence.

    I'd choose Ambre Russe.

    Love LDDM but it doesn't work on my skin... a shame.

    Wearing LDDM today - stunning, blows Ambre Russe out of the water. We'll see what Wazamba delivers tomorrow but this will take some beating I reckon. Can see why it gets the love!

    So sad my skin/nose doesn't get LDDM... sometimes i smell like seems to be a masterpiece, but most of the times it doesn't work. I feel like i'm missing something here.

    lddm ive never really been fond of.

    regarding ambre russe, am i alone in thinking it smells like a cross between a perfectly done amber and kilian's btb? anytime i wear it im always thinking im wearing btb only it smells darker and richer, then i remember it's ambre russe.
