    Default What should I Sample from Sephora next?

    Ok so i always get samples from Sephora because they're awesome and its their policy to give 3 samples.

    So far i've tried:
    Dior Farenheit - (A-) Didn't like it at first, but then i realized how brilliant it was after a bit. Too heavy for me to actually wear though
    YSL L'Homme - (A+) I love this, and will probably buy it when i get the chance. I already own La Nuit as well
    Boss Bottled - (B) I like it but i'm still kind of undecided...on my skin it smells very synthetic and has this "plasticy" note that im not sure about
    Dolce & Gabanna The One (B+) - I really like this one, I get a nice, sweet/spicy...kind of reminds me of cherry coke for whatever reason but its terribly weak and i can barely smell it, maybe it'd be better in the summer....
    One Million - (C-) Yuck. I really hated this. All i get is sickly sweat bubblegum....i dont see how anyone could like it. And i love sweeter scents (even A*men)
    Burberry For Men - (B) I like it, but it's a very safe scent. Not bad, but doesnt make me keep coming back for more or anything
    L'eau D"issay - (A-) - Yum. I love the grassy freshness, i could see myself wearing this in the spring/summer

    So What Should I try Next?? They've got a pretty decent selection of all the designer fragrances...Gucci, Versace...YSL, Dior, CK, Issay Miyake, Azzaro, JPG, etc. etc.

    Recommendations? any of the Gucci worth checking out?

    Dior Eau Sauvage Parfum would be a suggestion.

    Terre d'Hermes, Le Male, and Mont Blanc Legend is what I recommend.

    Terre d'Hermes (try both the EDT and PP to see which one you like better), Dior Homme, Dior Homme Sport, Bleu de Chanel, Chanel Allure Homme, Chanel Allure Homme Sport, Versace Pour Homme, Spicebomb, Givenchy Play Intense, Mont Blanc Legend Intense... that should last you a few trips

    oh yeah - they also usually have some Tom Ford's. Tom Ford for men, Extreme, and Grey Vetiver are the 3 I frequently see there...

    YSL L'Homme Intense is a kinder, gentler 1 Million. Meaning, it's wearable.

    Try Spicebomb as well. Try the Tom Fords, too.

    I love all three of these myself.

    Neroli Portofino

    They have it near the womens fragrances. It's completely unisex though.

    That and Terre D'Hermes...

    Everything else is pretty forgettable in my opinion.

    I'm surprised this has some rave reviews. I didnt like this one either.

    Recently, I sampled frags at Sephora and disliked all of them. Stores like these usually don't have frags I find appealing; they're too alcoholy.

    As far as I know, Sephora carries Acqua di Parma. Try their original Colonia.

    I found Gold Leather to be a little on the feminine side IMHO
    But definately try it.
    Also Ambre Nue.
    Vanille Incensee was interesting and worthy of consideration.

    I just bought the first three after many samples from there, so I think it says a lot, although, obviously different strokes...you can read up on the notes and reviews.

    Terre d'Hermes. You can and maybe should try both the EDT and pure parfum, but I found the EDT to be too weak and got no more than a couple hours of decent longevity. I don't regret the pure parfum at all.

    Gucci Pour Homme II. Less is more with this but I found it to be a very smooth composition, very wearable, and unique enough to earn a regular spot in my rotation. Plus, if you like it, you might want to get a bottle or two. It may be in the process of being discontinued.

    Bleu de Chanel. I got this as a safe fall-back if I'm ever undecided and need something safe, yet somewhat interesting. To me, it's nothing more, which doesn't have to be a negative thing.

    Jean Paul Gaultier Le Male. Though I have never bought a bottle (their sample should give you several wearings), I am fascinated nonetheless, enough to snag a sample anytime I'm nearby. It has its place if you want attention, even at the risk of offending some, and trust me, there will be some. Still one that will be noticed, often positively, IF you can discipline your trigger finger.

    Tom Ford Grey Vetiver. Nice fresh take on classic Vetiver. I apparently like it enough to keep getting samples. Probably means I'll buy it someday.

    Enjoy! Sephora samples = one of my favorite things
