    Default Need your help with niche samples order

    Dear basenoters. This (last) year I have not bought a fragrance as a Christmas present for myself but I have an urge to buy some samples from luckyscent.

    I picked up this so far:

    Amouage - Sample:Jubilation XXV
    Amouage - Sample:Lyric for Men
    Amouage - Sample:Reflection Man
    Amouage - Sample:Epic Man
    Amouage - Sample:Memoir Man
    By Kilian - Sample:Back to Black
    Histoires de Parfums - Sample:Ambre 114
    Maison Francis Kurkdjian - Sample:Cologne pour le Soir
    Maison Francis Kurkdjian - Sample:Absolue pour le Soir
    Montale - Sample:Red Aoud
    Montale - Sample:Red Vetyver
    Serge Lutens - Sample:Un Bois Vanille
    Serge Lutens - Sample:Chergui
    Diptyque - Sample:Philosykos - Eau de Toilette
    Divine - Sample:L’homme de coeur
    Divine - Sample:L’homme sage
    Etat Libre d’Orange - Sample:Fat Electrician


    I might be adding like 3 more samples but I need your help with this. Based on my TOP 5, wardrobe and sample ratings is there anything else available at luckyscent as a samples that I HAVE TO SAMPLE? I am looking for spicy oriental, woody oriental or maybe gourmand. Something unique with personality but still wearable and modern.

    I plan to order Le Labo discovery set later directly from Le Labo so Le Labo is out of question. I am also looking to sample most of Frederic Malle fragrances but they are not available here.
    Current TOP 5 from my collection:

    1. Gucci Pour Homme II
    2. Chanel Coromandel
    3. L'Instant de Guerlain Pour Homme Extreme
    4. Encre Noire
    5. Dior Homme Intense

    May I say that's the best sample list I've seen in years. You've done alot of homework.

    May I add a couple I think should be on the list:

    Bois d'Ascese by Naomi Goodsir

    Cuirelle by Ramon Monegal

    Invasion Barbare by MDCI

    Thank you sir! How could I forgot Invasion Barbare? Maybe because I wont ever be able to afford full bottle? Well, atleast I can experience juice from sample.

    I quickly checked other 2 suggestions and they both also sound intriguing. Thank you.

    I already own sample of Dark Oud and like it.
    Black Afgano sample is rather expensive ($10 for 0,7ml of juice?) and they dont have Ambre Sultan sample yet.

    Thanks for suggestions anyway.

    Great list already, and so many things you could sample in the oriental/gourmand territory. I'd add Lubin Idole, ELdO Tom of Finland (rather than their fat electrician), and Lutens Jeux de peau.

    Great list and I would add by Kilian Straight to Heaven, I think it matches what you're looking for, and is one of my absolute favourite fragrances. Also Frapin Caravelle Epicee for a great spicy woody boozy scent.

    I'd check out their Micallef offerings for samples. Several seem to fit your criteria.

    Serge Lutens Fille en Aiguilles, as was mentioned above. "Different" and some very nice stuff for this time of year.

    +1 Serge Lutens Jeux de Peau. Great gourmand scent that gets very little play on BN.
