    Re: What is this fragrance like?

    firstinfragrance has samples of it - 6€. I‘m sure they send to Greece.
    And 85€ for the 50ml. But you could probably get it for less online?
    Ive never smelled it so far.

    By sampling, I guess people mean to obtain little sample vials and wear them (at home for instance). This gives a much better impression than sampling 15 paper strips in a row.
