    Default What should I include in my sample haul?

    So it's been a while since I've purchased a sample, and since I got my tax returns back, I figured I'd splurge a little bit on a few samples. Right now, I am considering the following:

    Amouage Interlude
    Maison Francis Kurkdjian Aqua Universalis
    Frapin 1697 & 1270
    LIDGE
    DHI


    Considering some Atliers, Xerjoffs, some Le Labos, but I'm not sure which ones to go with. But I know I've seen several fragrances from these houses (and others) mentioned on here. I tend to like orientals, gourmands, and nice citruses (think APOM). Any suggestions on what to sample? What fragrances would you put on a MUST-SAMPLE list?

    DHI

    DHI is definetly a good one! Tom Ford Neroli Portinfino is another one you might like to get a sample of.

    Amouage Interlude if you love Japanese temple incense; Opus VI.

    Already tried TF NP. Smelled like one of Jo Malone's citruses. Unimpressed.

    Atelier - Very nice citrus scents. I like Oolang Infini, Bois Blonds, Orange Sanguine.

    Xerjoff - Very pricey, but high quality, and long lasting without being cloying. I like Kobe, Nio, Uden, 1861.

    Le Labo - Good all around scents, plus you can get a split on here for almost half the price of a regular bottle. I like Rose 31, Santal 33, Vetiver 46, Bergamote 22 (this is a nice citrus cologne with good longevity).
