    Default Best Samples to try for both me and my partner?

    Hi all,

    I would like to order a selection of fragrance samples for both myself 29M and my girlfriend 29F.

    I am fairly new to the fragrance realm. I have browsed these forums over time and watched some videos online about recommendations etc.

    We wish to try a wide range of samples before taking the plunge into building a solid collection for different seasons, occasions etc.



    Her
    Her favourite fragrances she has owned thus far have been Tom Ford Violet Orchid and Mon Guerlain EDP.

    Last year i bought her the Dior Christmas advent calendar that had a selection of Maison Christian Dior samples but there was nothing in there that really captivated her.

    Me
    I have sampled the following before Jo Malone Myrrh & Tonka, Maison Christian Dior Reve Délicieuse, Tom Ford Black Orchid, Tom Ford Tobacco Vanille.

    Fragrances i have owned and used consistently are Dolce and Gabbana The One EDT, Bleu De Chanel EDT and Armani Code EDT.




    We are open to trying a wide range of fragrances from different categories.

    What recommendations do you have?

    I am looking to order from fragrance samples uk, are there any other sites people could recommend?

    Thank you

    Welcome aboard

    One that comes to mind would be Rogue Perfumery - this is something both of you could try. You could purchase the samples set so that you could try and see which ones work best for you.

    As for other brands stuff like Creed, Guerlain, Chanel, and Dior all worth looking at. Diptyque, Frederic Malle, Serge Lutens are good as well.

    I don’t understand.It is so vast that surpasses all understanding.Understanding is always limited.But not understanding can have no boundaries.I feel like I'm much more complete when I don't understand.Not understanding,like I say,is a gift.Not understanding,but not as a simple-minded.The good thing is to be intelligent and not understand.It's a strange blessing, like having craziness without being crazy.It is a meek disinterest,it is a stupid sweetness.

    Perhaps check out the offerings of Mancera and Montale. They have a wide selection.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    Thank you for all the recommendations.

    I am UK based, can anyone recommend any legit eBay sample vendors? eBay seems to have the most choice for samples.
