    Default Your most expensive blind buy

    What is your most expensive blind buy? How much did you pay and why did you choose to buy it blind?

    Amouage EPIC Man 100ml can't remember but around £180 I guess

    Millesime Imperial directly from the Creed Boutique (back in my earlier days). I think it cost $285.

    Invasion Barbare (best blind buy I've ever made). It was $260.

    EDIT EDIT EDIT EDIT!

    I lied! (Unintentionally)

    Somebody resurrected an IB thread I started back in 2011 and apparently I sampled Invasion Barbare for a MONTH before I bought it. For some reason I thought I bought it blind. I did not.

    Just wanted to clear that up.

    Here *hands back cool points*

    *hangs head in shame*

    *tiptoes away from post*




    And more recently, Norne and Pear + Olive by Slumber house (also good blinds). $115 each.


    I'm more reserved these days. When it comes to expensive bottles, I'm more likely to sample. But anything under $75, I'll go blind after reading a couple of well written reviews.

    LDDM was my most expensive blind buy at $106. I couldn't be happier with it. Bought based on hype and all the positive reviews.

    Pure Havane and Pure Malt, both at around $96, couldn't be more pleased.

    nothing too high for me so far. DHI was mine at around $80. best blind buy for me so far. i dont mind blind buying now, awhile back it was just like taking shots in the dark, now i have (sort of lol) a guess at what i may or may not like based on notes and various reviews.

    Don't remember why I bought it blind - but I regret that one. Not my cup of tea. Oh well.

    A couple dudes hyped it up ridiculously. Maybe that's why?

    And dumb for buying directly from the Creed Boutique. I could have gotten the same thing for less than half the price at several other places online.

    Well, at least it's a good batch. But those Creed atomizers drain your juice fast. I've had to stop using it for a while because it was disappearing so quickly.

    With samples being at my finger tips and being so inexpensive I've quit blind buying. The most expensive was a Cartier for 80 dollars that only lasted 30 minutes on me. That cured me of the blind buy.

    Can gladly say that I'm not sure, usually sample anything expensive before buying.

    Pure Malt for me too. It was a nice fragrance, but not for me, so I sold it not long after.

    L'artisan Parfumeur Tea for Two. I chose to blind-buy it because as you know it's been discontinued and the local stores are all sold out. I paid $145 before taxes and shipping. It's in transit now! I hope I like it!

    I bought both of these blind (though I had tried regular Dior Homme a time or two before I bought the intense version), and of the two I would recommend the DHI if you want one for going out. More versatile IMHO.
