Warranty

All sales are final, we are a perfume sampling company - letting you try perfume before you invest in a bottle. Unfortunately, we cannot refund any product that you do not like. If you are new to perfume or wanting to break out of wearing the same scent, try our starter sampler packs so that you can find the perfume that works for you.

Description

Traditionally, men wore the scent they were given, but in the last decade or two, men are increasingly more interested in scent and smelling how they want to smell. Men's scent has changed dramatically because of that shift, expanding out of "classic" men's scents like Old Spice (hey!  I still love this scent!) into new areas. Many new scents today are unisex, and men have branched off into notes that have long been viewed as feminine. Why can't a guy wear iris or tuberose? These are amazing notes on anyone, regardless of gender.

But we aren't going to plow scary ground in this sampler pack. This is for the guy who is ready to start trying out scent and move beyond the same scent he's been wearing for years, or move beyond what has been the traditionally classic masculine scent, and this set of scents moves gently past those and includes modern updates to classes of scents and includes some classics. It's a great place to start to find out what you like and don't like, then start moving out beyond just these scents into the men's intermediate or advanced sample sets or just exploring a particular note or classification. 

These are some of the scents that are important for anyone who wants to learn more about niche and classic fragrances. They are a wonderful reference point as they are great examples of their type. 

This is Part 2 and includes half of the samples in the full sampler pack.  All samples are 1/2ml (1ml sample vial filled half full).  Larger sample sets are available:

  1. Knize Ten - The leather all other leathers want to be when they grow up (leather - Perfumes The Guide Best Masculine).
  2. L'Artisan Timbuktu - Cardamom, wood and myrrh (woody chypre - Perfumes The Guide Best Masculine).
  3. Montale Black Aoud - Every guy needs to try an oud scent, and this one has been going strong for years and is well-loved (woody floral musk).
  4. Ormonde Jayne Man  - Classic, elegant, manly, Cary Grant scent for evening (oriental woody - Perfumes The Guide Best Masculine).
  5. Tauer Perfumes L'air du Desert Marocain - Earthy leather.
  6. Serge Lutens Encens et Lavande -  incense and lavender flower.

    Another good pack

    This pack is perhaps a little more conservative than Part I, but still stimulating and educational. YSL Rive Gauche Pour Homme smells like straight down the middle piney man scent. Prada Infusion d'Homme is almost like not wearing fragrance at all. It smells like soap. Others are more intriguing: Acqua di Sale has the iodine smell of seaweed, oysters, and other things of the ocean. L'Air du Desert Marocain has an almost abrasive dryness in the nose ("earthy leather" is not a description I can relate to here). Others are not challenging, but just very pretty and luxurious. Here's how I rank them:

    1. Ormonde Man
    2. Acqua di Sale
    3. Timbuktu
    4. L'Air du Desert
    5. Knize Ten
    6. Encens et Lavande
    7. Rive Gauche
    8. Black Aoud
    9. Infusion d'Homme
    10 Musc for him
    11. New York

    I've found several new favorites here

    This (like the Part 1 sample set) is a wonderful selection of scents. I'm pretty new to this. I've found that if I "sit" with a fragrance I don't think I like, it ends up being one of my fragrances. Some of the "notes" are just unfamiliar (vetiver, oud, etc.). No hesitation recommending Surrender to Chance! Now, if I could figure out why all my favorites cost an arm and a leg. More, bigger decants for me for a while! :)

    I am new to fragrances

    This was a great way to get an introduction to a lot of scents without a hefty initial price tag. I'm sure most will find a scent or two they love among the offerings. Buying sample packs was a great way to learn what I liked ... And what I didn't. Thanks for this service.
