    Default Fragrance for fiance

    So I've been into fragrances for a long time and slowly my fiance has grown to appreciate them a well, often stealing a bottle of mine from time to time.

    I would really like to get her a sample of something truly impressive/different/wow factor like. Something non mainstream, maybe an oud maybe not in still pretty new to even the concept of niche houses and concentration differences. Maybe even a sample set from some house not commonly known to the average Jane or Joe but highly regarded around these parts...? Thanks a million for your assistance!

    For Oud I really like Shams oud by Memo or Black aoud by Montale.

    Parfumerie Generale have a really impressive discovery set that includes samples from their whole line. l'd be thrilled to receive it if it were me, & l'll bet there's something in there she'll love.

    Welcome to basenotes, by the way!

    Amouage and Malle have nice sample sets-expensive though.
    Etat Libre d'Orange has (not sure if still) a very reasonably priced and large sample set.

    Neela Vermeire or Divine maybe.

    Hi Old Factory—

    Hello! Here are a few suggestions for artisanal/indie/niche perfumes with excellent choices for women. Lots of incense and intense florals and not so much of the bog standard niche woody aromachemicals. Some of these do fun sample sets.

    Sonoma Scent Studios
    Olympic Orchids
    Francesca Bianchi
    Hiram Green
    Papillon
    Maria Candida Gentile
    Rogue Perfumery (Champs Lunaires and Jasmin Antique are gorgeous florals)
    strangelove (Laudamiel did some really fine work on these.)

    Great recommendations, also adding especially: Songe d'un Bois d'Ete by Guerlain, All'Olio di Argan by l'Erbolario, most of the Tom Ford Oud scents

    Acqua di parma is a good entry point i think, niche but still very wearable

    MFK is worth looking at. Oud Satin Mood if you want something sweet and Oud Silk Mood if you want something slightly darker.
