Beauty: Trying out some samples – Fragrances (part II)

Posted on Updated on

Last week you could read part I of this samples post. I gave you my thoughts on some fragrance samples I got at my drugstore. I tried out three more. So let’s see of I like them enough to buy the fullsize version!

Sample: Elie Saab – Le Parfum

Occasion? I used this sample on a shopping afternoon.

First impression? I love this smell. It’s quite heavy, flowery and there’s also some citrus to be detected.

To buy or not to buy? I have bought this perfume before. I only bought it once though, but getting this sample has reminded me of how much I like it, so I might buy it again!

Sample: Cartier – La panthère

Occasion? I used this sample on New Year’s eve.

First impression? Spicy, woody, powerful smell with a hint of rose. Very lady-like. Love it 🙂

To buy or not to buy? The scent was gone fairly quickly so that was a bit of a pity. But I’m intrigued by this fragrance so perhaps I will buy it to try it out!

Sample: Tommy Hilfiger

Occasion? I used this sample to go to work.

First impression? Fresh, fruity, young smell. I’m not blown away by it though. Perfect for teenagers and young women.

To buy or not to buy? If I end up buying this, it would be for my youngest daughter or a niece, definitely not for myself!

Have you tried any of these samples? What are your thoughts? Let me know in the comments!

Love, Kathleen

      It reminded me slightly of Classique from Jean Paul Gaultier! Thanks for your comment! Love, Kathleen

    I have not tried any of these, but I have about 10 perfume samples to try! I’m really picky when it comes to perfume because a lot of scents are way too strong and give me a headache.

    I have not tried any of these scents before, but I am trying to be more experimental with scents lately. The Cartier sounds perfect!

    I have not tried any of these 🙂 but I like using sample before buying the full size. You really can go wrong with parfume if it is not in sink with you skin/body
