    Default Looking for fragrances to sample

    Gentlemen,
    Looking to add to my collection of fragrances currently own 12 FB.
    Today's favorites are:

    Penhaligons - Halfeti
    Rogue- Mousse Illuminee
    Knize Ten
    Rasasi - La Yuqawan

    I seem to be drawn to nice scents with powerful projection and longevity.

    Are there some good ones along these lines I should sample

    Would appreciate any suggestions on fragrances I could get 3 - 5 - 8 ml. samples from either The Perfumed Court, Decant Shop,Surrender To Chance or other decanters who use spray glass vial's. Not too crazy about Lucky Scent samples, small, plastic container, non -spray

    Thanks!

    Thank you, will look at all of these, I believe some are relatively inexpensive probably worth a blind buy

    Perhaps explore Mancera and/or Montale houses.

    Lalique PH EDP is one of the best for-value fragrances in the "classic" style. It's a beautiful grapefruit+cedar+lavender composition that sits in a parallel lane to the much celebrated Bois du Portugal.
