    I like these..

    Gucci Pour Homme II
    Burberry London
    Givenchy Play Intense

    Don't care much for La Nuit. These are all avaliable to sample in most department stores, wouldn't that be better than paying for samples?

    Really good choices IMO. They are generally pretty likable fragrances, so you should have a good shot at finding a couple good ones for you!
    The Gucci & Burberry are 2 of my all-time favorites!

    Gucci Pour Homme II - Smells like if you boiled water then squirted some ketchup into it then smelled it after, yup.

    London is a real price. But IMHO I think it's (unfortunately for me at least) more suited towards the 25 something + aged people and/or doesn't really fit my style in general. I wear it occationally though on my own (bought one for my dad), and I'm 20.

    I think London works for spring and autumn as well, if you live in Denmark. Haven't tried those other ones
    I doubt the gucci is sooooo strong though, neither the YSL
    And if it's not an extreme case if you apply less, you could wear any fragrance any time of the year basically, if you think it fits with the wibe of the season

    Great choices to sample. Good luck.
    The sense of smell, like a faithful counsellor, foretells its character.

    Sampling is always good. That's how we all learn our own likes and dislikes. Have fun. I personally don't enjoy any one of the four you ordered, but that doesn't matter. It only matters what you like.
