Hi John, welcome to Basenotes! All I can say is keep sampling. I used to blind buy a lot but ended up having bottles I dont like. Out of my 50ish bottles I probably rotate around 10. Go to big department stores like John Lewis, Fenwick, Debenhams they usually have the most collection of fragrances. Boots and Superdrug had good stocks aswell. Specialist shops like The Perfume shop and The Fragrance shop also does good deals. A tip though, I always buy online once I find the fragrance I like. Good sites like Allbeauty, Fragrancedirect and FeelUnique usually is cheaper than the high street shops. Good luck on fragrance hunting and don't forget to post reviews!
