    Default Brands/Houses that sell discovery sets?

    Which brands or houses sell discovery or sample sets of their scents for a fair price?

    (NOT, Min, TPC or Luckyscent, or any other sample selling sites.)

    For starters I know about the following...

    • Dueto
    • Slumberhouse

    I just bought the Dueto discovery set a couple of days ago. Think it was $8 which include shipping and 4 fragrances.

    That's an amazing price for a discovery set with 4 spray samples.
    This is how all companies should do it. Let the customer test the product for a good price.
    If he or she loves it, he or she will buy it. Let the product speak for itself. It's a win-win for everyone.

    Xerjoff do Oud and Shooting Stars discovery sets. Worth a look.

    I've ordered from Maison Francis Kurkdjian which was 12euros for 4 samples of your choice, which I thought was pretty good. Even better, IMO, is the discovery set from Parfum d'Empire at 22euros for all 13 samples in their range! I've also ordered the Slumberhouse set and will probably go for Tauer (25euros for 5 samples) and Atelier Cologne ($15 for whole range apparently). Lorenzo Villoresi is also pretty good at 3.5euros per sample. Unfortunately, I don't think Creed are doing sets at the moment - they were before Christmas but they seem to have vanished from the site.

    Thanks Brian Towers for giving me some more to look into.

    my thoughts exactly
    14 sprays of DRAKKAR NOIR should do it

    Mona di Orio makes a cofret set that is worth exploring.
    Most worn scents according to my haphazard use of the SOTD...so perhaps my favorites...
    1. Epic Man by Amouage (21 wears)
    2. M7 by Eves Saint Laurent (18 wears)
    3. Leather Oud by Christian Dior (18 wears)
    4. Oud Imperial (black) by Perris Monte Carlo (14 wears)
    5. Russian Tea Ritual by Masque (12 wears)
    6. Fate Man by Amouage (11 wears)
    7. Terre d'Hermes by Hermes (11 wears plus - often not recorded go to scent)
    8. Interlude Man by Amouage (11 wears)
    9. Journey Man by Amouage (11 wears)
    10. Plum Japonais by Tom Ford, Bullion by Byredo, Piper Nigrum by a Lorenzo Villorosi, Pulp by Byredo, Santal Royal by Guerlain (9 wears)


    Be who you are and say what you feel, because those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.

    I believe they also have a PdN discovery set for women.
