    Default Based on my wardrobe / ratings, should I pull the trigger on these blind buys?

    Three weeks from my last purchase and the jones is creeping up again. I currently have three bottles in my sights:

    Hanae Mori H.M. EdT
    Boucheron Jaipur
    VC&A Midnight in Paris

    Taking a look at my wardrobe (FB and samples) and how I've rated things there, do you guys think I'd be safe with these three?

    Thanks!

    All three are great choices and you can't go wrong with any.

    As others have said, they all look right up your alley. And FWIW: I actually lead towards the EDT of Midnight in Paris.

    Jaipur and MIP are good ones IMO. I'm not to cool with HM.

    I detest MIP however, HM is fantastic, and Jaipur Homme is nice.

    Thanks for your input, guys. I am slightly waffling on the HM because while doing some BN research on it I saw it compared to Diesel's Fuel For Life, which is a very nice and popular scent that's loved by many but just happens to make me virtually catatonic with loathing. With that bit of evidence on the table, would HM still be a good blind buy for me?

    I'm sure you will love Homme Jaipür EDP. Let us know what you bought and if you're happy with your purchase.

    HM and Midnight In Paris are both safe blind buys. But there's always a chance you will find it just alright, and not great.
