I received a sample of Isotta Fraschini Tipo 8 along with an eBay purchase. Actually two samples with two eBay purchases at different times from the same seller. Both of these samples smelled the same. They're a rather pleasant leather with light florals and lavender. I liked it well enough to purchase a NOS bottle which was very reasonably priced. The full bottle is night and day different. It's the citrus/vanilla described in the reviews here, nothing I'd buy a full bottle of. The samples were clearly marked the same as the FB.

I don't think anybody did anything wrong and I'm not mad at the seller. I just wonder if anyone has any experience with Isotta Fraschini fragrances. Maybe Tipo 8 refers to the car made by IF, not the specific smell in the bottle. Does anyone know which of their fragrances is the leather?
