Kilian Pure OuD...amazing.
Do you have a scent that you are so sold on it that you bought within seconds of first smelling it?
I just did Cartier Roadster. It could be because I was having a cough and the mint appeals to me immediately. Inhaling it soothes my throat.
Kilian Pure OuD...amazing.
Do it all the time - many times even without smelling it.
The most recent one was Voyage d'Hermes Parfum. As soon as I sprayed it on my skin, I bought it.
The relatively low longevity/sillage has had no effect on how much I enjoy this fragrance. Beautiful stuff.
i did it for DHI. still.loving it

If I had the money I would've bought Amouage Epic Man instantly.
The sense of smell, like a faithful counsellor, foretells its character.
Nope, I give a full wearing before purchasing; top notes can be deceiving.
Jules by Dior..a very long time ago!

Didn't purchase, but knew that I'd buy it sooner or later- that first sniff was enough. Has happened to me with
Dior Homme Intense.
Wish I could say I bought Dior Homme on first smell, but it took me three tries before I bought the bottle. That Iris was just hard to agree with at first.
Oddly enough, Angel Men. There was something about the harsh tar note that was appealing. Bought it right away after I smelled it off the tester.
It's gotta be Dior Homme Intense of course!
The only fragrance I immediately bought was Narciso Rodriguez for Him...it is still one of my all time favorites! and I've complete line of the same including ASL/ASB/Deo/Shower Gel
Terre d'Hermes (few years ago)
I rarely do this, but last month I did it at the Barney's in Vegas, with Anima Dulcis by Arquiste. Instant love!

I thought that was the purely natural human response. Then i came across Basenotes.
ointments and perfume delight the heart....
Canali Black Diamond... The one time I don't test for Longevity and Projection it bites me!
Amazing scent though, and very happy I own it (3rd bottle!)
The hunt for a Signature Fragrance is not an easy one! I see the light at the end of the tunnel! Edit: 2015... I've given up and given in

One and only one: APOM Homme. Though, I didn't have the time to double think: I bought it in Paris at the Maison, and the trip was about over
Never. I need to do at least 1 full wearing before buying a bottle. I can't tell how a frag will perform until I see it through it to the end.
Buying a frag after 1 sniff is like seeing the opening credits of a movie and saying it's your favorite movie of the year so far.
This happened for me with Bleu de Chanel and it was my first fragrance after a couple of Hugo Boss bottles i had purchased many years ago. Bleu gave a nice start fot my frag hobby and I still reach for bleu every once in a while!
L'Eau D'Ambre Extreme
