    Default Sample order from first in fragrance, 5 in shopping cart, any additions?

    Hey guys, I'm pretty excited about my first online order of samples on the site of first in fragrance (http://www.ausliebezumduft.de/duefte.html), obviously there's a lot of choice, and I've narrowed it down to these 5 already:

    Creed - MI
    L'aid du désert marocaine
    Frapin - L'humaniste
    Heeley - Sel Marin
    L'artisain - Timbuktu

    Anything along the same lines that is a must-try for a novice like me? I wanted to try some more creeds, but most of them don't come in sample size! I've considered ordering something of Amourage and Bond nr 9 as well, but full bottles are a bit on the expensive side!

    Cheers!

    IMO, that's a good start.

    I agree with hednic, that's a good start.

    How about something from Comme Des Garcons? They do really interesting things (to put it mildly!). ausliebezumduft has their Red Series, and their Incense Series, and their Cologne Series. Almost anything from those is worth a sniff. Good luck!

    I tried tobacco vanille, and loved it, although quite 'thicker' than what I'm used to

    I definitely second the Amouage Jubilation XXV suggestion.

    I would also recommend Creed's Royal Oud (I prefer it to MI), and maybe Maison Francis Kurkdjian's Absolu Poir le Soir.

    Another one you might not see much hype for but is a great one you could get as a sample from there would be Biehl-Parfumkunstwerke - al02.

    Enjoy!

    Update!

    With the exception of sel marin, i've been able to test my samples a couple of times now. Milesime Imperial and L'humanite are absolutely wonderful, and I'm definitely picking up a bottle of the former. Both LDDM and Timbuktu are amazing as well, nothing anything like I've smelled before, but maybe It's a bit too incense for me...I feel they are quite similar, anyone else think this too?
