I'm glad I have a bottle of Lavender Palm.

Lalique Encre Noire. Can't decide if I love it or hate it. Switches between a cypress hedge and dry roasted oats for me. Between being uplifting and sickening despite its dryness. The bottle is amazing - perhaps my favorite mainstream bottle ever.
Bvlgari Black (the original, not MIB). Probably the first vanilla drydown I sort of enjoy. Genius to match it with lapsang souchong, which cuts right through the cloying sweetness of vanillin. I do, however, struggle justifying wearing this more often than a couple times a quarter; it is as unique and recognizable as a bright purple grenadine grossa tie.
Cartier Declaration Essence: I didn't get this one until a couple hours in. It becomes a smoky, dry, woody wonder, like burning pine wood, unlike the original Declaration which fizzed out quietly. I think the Amouage Epic/Jubilation XXV fans would like this.
These bottles are so cheap nowadays, it's almost worth buying them instead of samplers...
Which shop would sell samples in small aromizer form, not the dabbing stick?
Got my first round from Luckyscent and apart from the LeLabo ones, it's all "with a stick". Reason is of course that the sticky ones can be difficult to judge on how they might work in full bottle form.
SOTD TF NP Forte - I undersprayed, can't smell much any more. Opening was very neroli blossomy, which is why I was probably too careful. Will have to refresh later when back home.
