    Thank you all for you suggestions. Here is what I ordered:
    Heritage EDT(full bottle)
    Vetiver Guerlain(full bottle)
    DIOR HOMME SPORT(sample)
    FAHRENHEIT by Christian Dior (sample)
    DIOR HOMME by Christian Dior (sample)

    Going for the full bottles is a risk but based on the majority support for these two I feel it will be fine.

    Next ones I am looking out is discovery sets from:
    ELDO
    Diptyque

    Let us know how you like them! Same for the ELdO sample pack... you're in for some surprises with that one, but this is REAL creative perfumery.

    Is it safe to buy decants from ebay? If so are there any reputable sellers? Just researching superficially I found that ebay has the lowest prices.

    Yes. Just apply the basic rules of caution:

    1/ check that the seller has already done a certain amount of sales (at least 20 or so)
    2/ check that he/she has at least 98% positive reviews (if more than 100 sales, if not and if lower than 20-30 sales, check what are the negative comments - shipping time you don't care, but "never received the item" or many "fake" complaints is a no-go)
    3/ Check that the seller is located in the "western world" (do not buy from Russia, or any eastern europe, or asia)
    4/ check that the picture are from the item, not generic catalog pictures
    5/ if any doubts, ask question and see how spot on are the answers. Make sure the seller accepts free returns with free shipping (but if the seller seems genuine, that may not be a no-go, since ebay guarantee is pretty solid).
    6/ read cautiously the description, and check well the level of juice in the pics, especially when sold "as of picture"

    Sorry, I just realized you asked about decants, not full bottles... I have no clue about decants, I never buy decants for ethical reasons (I dislike the easy money - usually between 20% and 40% depending on the frags, a huge margin! - made on profits from a decant business) and safety reasons (no way to know if decants are legit/watered-down, even from reputable sellers).

    Kicked off the party with the guerlain vevitar and heritage. Both these come out as mature and classy types. Vevitar is a little too mature for me but may be I will like it as time goes. The longevity is great on both of them with 2-3 sprays hang on easily for the full day. I think they suit well for summer.

    Also I ordered vials from rogue perfumery
    Chypre Siam
    Flos Mortis - Favourite
    Mousse Illuminee

    Really like these fragrances but the biggest drawback for me personally is the longevity.

    Next up vials of dior series I ordered.
    Also ordered a 10 bottle sample set from diptyque.
