    Red face Just blind bought Samourai? Your thoughts.

    Hi there, as the title says, I just blind bought Samourai by Alain Delon, it was cheap, money is horribly tight due to recent car repair bills etc, so I thought I would cheer myself up and blind buy something completely random. I've got a long wait as it's from Australia and I'm in the UK.

    Does anyone have any experience of what this smells like? I've read a few reviews, but in my mind, I can't seem to get an image of how this would smell (I know that sounds weird :|)

    Can anyone compare it to another fragrance?

    Cheers.

    AD Samourai is pretty ok if you're into mild transparent watery citrus-woods kind of fragrance. Not particularly memorable to me. There are definitely better options in the genre, for not much more. But at least you got it for a steal.

    Have owned it for many years and like it. Very reasonably priced. (214)

    Always liked this fragrance. A smooth, inoffensive classic, often underrated and good price-quality ratio, smelling much more expensive than its actual cost.

    Cheers, is there any other fragrance it smells similar to?
    I've heard it's fairly unique in some respects so it's probably a silly question.

    Recently bought it blind myself.

    I like it. It's an oriental but very fresh at the same time. I wouldn't consider it aquatic. Nice florals up top (Jasmine, I believe) with just enough pepper and woods to keep it on the masculine side. Dries down to lightly powdered amber. I like the opening and heart the best. Pretty well composed and balanced throughout. I'm not a big fan of florals or orientals to begin with, but the fresher, lighter aspect of this makes it very appealing to me.

    If you got it for the right price it's a good deal. I was able to get a 50 ml for $17. No qualms here.

    The bottle's pretty nice too.

    Hope you enjoy it.

    Yeah I got it for around 11 for the 50ml.,
    I look forward to it, it's not a giant loss if it's not my favourite
