I got the Sephora mens sampler for Christmas:
http://www.sephora.com/fragrance-sampler-for-him-P376779

This 12-piece collection of Sephora’s most stylish men’s fragrances—each evoking the complex spirit of the modern man. This sampler also includes a voucher for a full-size bottle, making it the perfect present for indecisive buyers or receivers. From the spicy, woody notes of Issey Miyake’s L’Eau d’Issey Pour Homme, to the mint and lavender blend in Jean Paul Gaultier’s Le Male, he can try them all, chose his favorite, and visit a Sephora store to receive the full-size gift.

This set contains samples of:
(the exclusive scent certificate is good for one full-size bottle of your favorite featured fragrance)
- Dolce & Gabbana The One Sport – redeems to a 1 oz Eau de Toilette Spray
- Giorgio Armani Acqua di Giò – redeems to a 1.7 oz Eau de Toilette Spray
- Givenchy Play – redeems to a 1.7 oz Eau de Toilette Spray
- Gucci by Gucci Pour Homme– redeems to a 1 oz Eau de Toilette Spray
- Hanae Mori HM – redeems to a 1.7 oz Eau de Toilette Spray
- Issey Miyake L'Eau d'Issey Pour Homme – redeems to a 1.7 oz Eau de Toilette Spray
- Jean Paul Gaultier LE MALE – redeems to a 1.3 oz Eau de Toilette Spray
- John Varvatos Artisan – redeems to a 2.5 oz Eau de Toilette Spray
- Lacoste Eau de Lacoste – redeems to a 3.4 oz Eau de Toilette Spray
- Paco Rabanne 1 Million – redeems to a 1.7 oz Eau de Toilette Spray
- Versace Pour Homme – redeems to a 1 oz Eau de Toilette Spray
- Yves Saint Laurent L'Homme– redeems to a 1.3 oz Eau de Toilette Spray
Bonus: Jack Black Post Shave Cooling Gel


How it works:
1. Purchase the Fragrance Sampler as a gift or for yourself.
2. Sample the fragrances and choose a favorite.
3. Fill in the enclosed voucher.
4. Bring the voucher into a Sephora store and redeem it for a fragrance.


Suggestions on what I should pick for my full sized bottle?
I havent tried any of the samples yet cause ive been hooked on my spicebomb.
Kind of leaning toward Lacoste Eau de Lacoste just because it is the only 3.4 oz , but Ive seen Paco Rabanne 1 Million, and Yves Saint Laurent L'Homme posted here (and in the OG thread) a bunch of times.

Ysl l'homme is my daily driver since I have the big as bottle is now kept in my car since it's pretty much cool or cold, no drastic change in temp. I also have Jean Paul gaultier, Burberry Brit, Hugo boss and lacoste essential. Looking for another fragrance and was thinking spice bomb or guilty but I heard good things about aventus. I want something smooth yet striking 8)

The ladies will be rubber necking with this one.

I use YSL L'Homme or Armani Aqua di Gio for everyday scent but this Dolce at night or on dates is
.

I wish I could afford or justify the price of Creed though

I would assume their shipping methods are legit, I bought from the brick n mortar store tho
Around $27usd
No.

The website can be translated at the top to English, someone let me know if they ship to the US, I can't do it from my iPad.

I just picked up London for going out on the weekends. Can't wait to try it out 
London is another that gets good run from me. Bleu as well.

You just have to try them all. There's some decent fragrances in there. Just depends on what you like best and what works best on you.

Yo, can someone suggest some new fragrances for me?  

For reference, some of my favorites that I use are Armani Code, Emporio Armani "He" (highly slept on/forgotten and of the G.O.A.T.s, IMO) and Givenchy Play.  On the heavier tip, I've also rocked with D+G and I currently use YSL La Nuit.

I've been hearing good things about this One Million--would it be similar to anything I currently use?  Thanks!

^ I'm not a fan of 1 Million but I prefer scents that are more natural smelling not synthetic

I'd recommend something from Chanel's Allure line

Also a great smelling scent is Dior Homme, it smells like lipstick but it's amazing and chicks LOVE it

I got 1 Million as a gift and didn't really care for it, but the response from others keeps me rocking it.

That's why it's an everyday joint. People like it, but I have no problem blazing my way through it.

Stillin, what do you think of the Burberry line in general? Over the years, I've found myself liking quite a few of their fragrances.

I think Burberry is hit or miss, their new version of Men that was re formulated in the mid 90's is very good, I also like Weekend but that's a scent you either love or hate

A lot of people like Touch but I'm not crazy about it.

A lot if people also love London

They are usually a good bargain but I don't think any are retail worthy but you can find a lot of them at TJ Maxx and Marshall's

I got Weekend as a gift from a girl ages ago. I dug it as a summer scent.

I think I liked their Burberry Summer as well when I sampled it, but never owned.

I like London and I like Brit. Touch I'm not that into. I have a small sample bottle that I rock every now and then.

I don't remember liking The Beat much. Burberry for Men seems a bit too old school for me.

And yes, I've always gotten them pretty cheap.

Thanks for the info 729 and illphil.  How does 1 Million smell though?  Is it light and fruity?  Or is it heavier?  I can't do the joints that smell like I'm a rugged outdoorsman.  I'm definitely more of the subtle, barely there type of scent dude, for the most part.  

I guess I'll just hit up my local store and check them out, although I don't think they carry 1 Million.
