    Thanks everyone, she's very easy going with scents, I'm actually looking forward to trying this one out myself, would also love to try the extrait after smelling the EDP.

    So I'm having a style overhaul year (happens every three years or so; I'll get bored and restless and change my s**t up a bit). This year, that includes perfumes. I've felt sort of restless in that area for a while, having worn the same rotation basically since I started playing around on BN so many moons ago. I've gotten bottles here and there that placated me for a while but they were all familiar. I've found that I developed a pretty good gut instinct about what I'll really dig but not enough to blind buy; just enough to wisely choose samples. I was right on my two most recent purchases (10 Corso Como and ELdO Fat Electrician) and I've got five more samples en route out of which I'm confident I'll get two new bottles.

    So. Samples are Nicolai Musc Monoi and a Frederic Malle sampler-- Rose & Cuir, Dans tes Bras, Lipstick Rose, and Musc Ravageur.

    I'm pretty sure the winners will be Musc Monoi and either Rose & Cuir or Dans tes Bras. I think it'll be difficult to choose just one Malle.

    Great choice on the Shalimar edp, piney.

    Thanks Sunnyfunny, I think you'll really enjoy Dans Tes Bras, it so different from everything Malle has done, that's what makes it so great to my nose.

    I enjoy the extrait concentration more than the EDP. I recommend get samples of the Shalimar's Ode a la vanille flankers. Mexique and Madagascar are really nice.

    Congrats on the Malle sampler. Rose & Cuir is really good. I also like and own Musc Ravager.

    Were the flankers Limited Edition bottles or they still produced N.CAL? I'm kind of ashamed to say that I've never tried Shalimar in any form, even though I enjoy several lines from Guerlain, I've just never gotten around to their classics e.g Jicky, Shalimar, L'heure Bleue, Mitsouko, ect.). Is my journey headed in a new direction? Only time will tell I guess. Thanks for the recommendations.

    I can’t wait to hear what you think of Musc Monoi! I’m really enjoying my sample.

    They were limited edition releases. Madagascar was released in 2012 and Mexique was released in 2013.
    You will find some bottles showing up on eBay from time to time. Sampling sites the Surrender to Chance and thePerfumedCourt offers samples.

    I might try and get a sample of these, I have seen that when they do come up on eBay they fetch a high price.
