you can also hound the sales lady for samples. I do this with ones I think I like. I might like them in the store but sometimes it becomes a whole different story after I have worn it for the day. I was working as a field investigator for some major banks in 2008 when Tom Fords Black Orchid came out. At over $100 for 30ml. Because I was in different areas of Georgia every day, I would stop into whatever Nordstroms or Neimans was near and play a role and get a sample or two of it. It was not unusual for me to spend my lunch break at a perfume counter somewhere. It was sort of a running gag that when I got back to the office (where my daughter was office manager) I had to unload the company car before the boss caught me.
