I ordered perfume samples from The Perfumed Court. They decant different perfumes so that you can sample them in different size bottles up to 8ml. I got 7 perfume samples and wanted to share my first impressions of each.
Pink Pepper: bright, sparkling, spicy
Iris: floral, green, powdery
Ambrette Seeds: woody, warm, sweet
Ambrox: creamy, musky, salty
The pepper smell comes through pretty strongly with this perfume, but I love it! It's strong but sweet and really adapts to the wearer. This is on my list of perfumes to buy next.
Oud accord, Rose Essence, and Neroli Essence
The Rose isn't super strong as the Oud really comes through with this fragrance. It isn't as strong as some other Ouds I've smelled, which I like. Since it is a stronger fragrance, I would wear this as an evening fragrance.
Top: Bergamot, Juniper Berries, Lemon, Pepper
Heart: Incense, Orris, Pine Needle
Base: Amber, Sandalwood, Vanilla
This is a very light and fresh fragrance but it doesn't have linen or powdery smell. I would take this on a beach vacation or layer it with other perfumes. This unfortunately isn't on my list to buy any time soon!
Top: pink pepper, primofiore lemon, neroli oil.
Middle: rum absolute, clary sage oil, java vetiver oil.
Base: tobacco leaf absolute, vanilla bean, styrax resin.
This smells like a MAN. Like a man who builds things. I would buy this for a significant other, it smells really good! 10/10 recommend!
Magnolia, Musk, Tangerine, Bulgarian Rose
I really like the perfume but I'm not in love with it. I would buy it but it's definitely further down on my list. The rose scent comes through but not in an obnoxious way. Again, it smells good but not my favorite from the list.
YSL - LIBRE INTENSE
$85 - $140
Lavender Essence Orange Blossom Orchid Accord Warm Vanilla Perfume
I am in love with this perfume! I've actually purchased the 1oz bottle already. This smells amazing, very feminine but in the best way. It isn't super floraly and is less intense than I thought it would be. It's my new favorite and you really can't beat the price.
Vanilla Orchids, Tonka Absolute, Amber Woods
LOVE HER DOWN! This was definitely in my top 3 fragrances from this list. I might get the travel size to start. The vanilla is not overpowering, which I love. There's also a sweetness to it which complements the vanilla so well.
