    Just ordered the sample set on the website. Cheapest shipping was $35 so ordered a bottle of Oud Zen to complete the first set of fragrances.

    Just pre order Oud Picante and sample set.
    DHL Express though. For me the $10 extra is well worth it.

    Thank you for your comment on this thread .
    Soon as I read it, I went in to order.

    Can't order the sample set from Areej directly if you live in the USA.
    So I just will pre order Oud Picante with DHL Express.

    I can't believe how nice the sample set packaging is .
    Got a peek of it from the STC's photos .
    This is very nice of Russian Adam for making this available for us here in the States.

    And for anyone who doesn't qualify for the "first timer" coupon:

    - HALLOWEEN is good for 5% off (purchases under $75)
    - PUMPKINS is good for 8% off (purchases over $75)

    ...although if you've previously shopped there, you probably get the emails and already know that.

    I am a new to basenotes but not to perfume collecting. I'm also a new fan of Areejledore and Feel Oud. I'm afraid I can't help you from blind buying these as I just blind ordered two bottles, thinking that they will sell fast, and I am saving on the expensive shipping. I couldn't wait for my sample set I ordered from STC. I know I will love the Atlantic Ambergris and the Flux de Fleur. Good luck! I can't wait to hear all of the reactions and reviews once these are received.

    Wouldn't it have been nice if the bottles were only available, say, a month after the sample sets? That way I'd feel safer investing in the samples (I guess investing is the word) since I'm thinking to myself "What if I fall in love with these and they are all GONE before I've even had a chance to try them!" (Admission: I already ordered a set of the samples from STC, and I guess now all I can do it hope Of course there's another part of me hoping I don't like them (the part in charge of the CC, lol).

    I was thinking the same thing! For my wallet's sake, I hope they're all terrible, but I doubt it

    Just to confirm (in case I missed something) these new four are also "limited editions" of 100 bottles each, correct?

    Great minds! Was thinking the exact same thing. I’ll run it by Adam and see what he thinks of the idea, for future consideration.

    Perhaps a more generous sampler set at a suitably marked up price? Or smaller 30 ml full bottles priced at $150-$210 to reach out to wider audience? IMO 50 ml is way too much juice to blindbuy at $250-350 a pop. My samples aren’t in yet but I’m heading over to strifeknot’s to buy me some ‘insurance cover’.

    Yes they are limited to 100 bottles .
    This is Kafkaesques blog . Here's the link
    http://www.kafkaesqueblog.com/2017/1...areej-le-dore/

    It's a excellent article about the Areej le dore line.
    She also wrote an couple reviews of his previous releases .

    If you read this, and you don't know already, strifeknot of basenotes will be doing splits of Russian Adams work.
    He already asked me what size I want .
    He is an excellent splitter.

    It seems the consensus is Atlantic Ambergris .
    That one does sound excellent.
    I pre ordered Oud Picante .
    Why, Russian Adam does an incredible job with oud.
    My second pick was Atlantic Ambergris though.
    I'll be getting a decant/split from stifeknot of it for sure.

    When I got onto the site, I added the samples to my cart and clicked "pay by paypal". The browser just sat there thinking about it. I Tried opening up another window but ran into the same thing. It would seem that the site had a lot people trying to purchase the samples at the same time.

    I've now tested them all and I'm very impressed! I hate that I want them all, but I do. Russian Adam gets a lot of attention for what he does with oud and musk, but I think florals is where he excels. First Ottoman Empire and now Flux de Fleur. Wow!

    Ottoman is my favorite out of the first three too.
