Make a small selection of the fragrances that appeal to you the most to try them on a mouillette, blotter or scent strip. Try Diptyque profumi.

When you have several samples, arrange them in a fan shape to compare one with another. You can write the name of each fragrance on the mouillette to remind yourself.
