I loved the sample set! It is worth noting that the individual samples (without the spray top) are not perfume oils. I wore one of these everyday inside both my elbows:
Dauphine: So pretty, so rosy and strawberry cream. It reminded me a lot of Glossier You but less citrus and more refined and powdery. The top note faded quite quickly on me but the creamy base note lingered for about 12-14 hours (with the last 2 hours being quite faint).
Lartigue: So crisp and bright and airy. Top note came off a bit strong on me, but faded out quite nice. I think this is a great scent for men who are scared to try fragrances. Smells like what being in a Yacht club would be like. Top note faded after 1-2 hours and lasted about 12 (very faint at 12).
Grand Tour: Green, herb-y, and pine-y. I really liked this one. It's a great androgynous scent that is the "spiciest" smelling (to me) of the bunch and when it faded out, it smelled similar to Dasein's Winter Nights. This was a little sweeter, less spicy, and more pine smelling. Herbiest of the bunch.Top note: 1-2 hours, 10-12 total.
Realism: If you're Asian (as I am), this smelled a lot like Tiger Balm on the top note. In fact, many of my Asian friends thought I was wearing Tiger Balm for the first hour or so. Then it faded out into Patchouli, which does not play well with my skin chemistry, so this was a no for me. Top note: 1 hr, lasted about 12-14.
Silent Films: Started off smelling like cigarette smoke on me, but faded out beautifully to a sweet vanilla and burnt cocoa on my skin. Did not expect to pick this one as my favorite, but it definitely took that spot because I found myself smelling my arm all day and catching whiffs of it on my clothing. Really does remind you of sitting in an aged theater seat with sweet and savory base notes. Top: 2 hours. 12 total
Jackal: Has a spicy leathery almost gasoline smell as the top note. Faded out SO nicely. Reminded me of burnt chocolate when you try to melt it on a stove. Or tire rubber mixed in with that. It smells smoky and sweet and rich all at once. A great scent that I loved. Bold and would be the best of the bunch for a night time scent. Between Silent Films and Jackal, I thought Jackal smelled similar to Silent Films' base note, but it was much more chocolate-y and rich, whereas Silent Films smelled more smoky and powdery. Top note: 2 hours, 14 total.
Smoker's Perfume: Top note almost grassy and woodsy to me. Faded out quite quick and maintained a very nuanced smell the remainder of the day. By hour 12, it smelled exactly (almost) like it did at hour 4, but it got sweeter smelling over the day. I loved the top note, but I am not a smoker but could definitely tell it would smell GREAT with cigarette smoke. I felt like I was only wearing half the scent and it smelled blunt on me.
Each one was so unique and so artfully constructed. There are so many layers to each one, and it was interesting to see how differently they played on my own skin compared to the other reviewers.

Love that I was able to get a sampler of the 4 that appealed to me most and really get a sense for the wear because they smell somewhat different in the bottle vs on skin.
Grand Tour - fresh, intriguing, more on the spicy side of woody. The herbaceous/aromatic top note reads very masculine to me personally, though I love the idea of a woman being able to pull this off.
Realism - earthy, unusual, warm. Definitely get the hay and soil, and my mind almost fills in the blanks with the barn and horses. I don't get so much of the greenness, and the patchouli is fairly prominent, which isn't my thing. I think this is definitely a "great only if it works with your chemistry" one.
Lartigue - aquatic, modern, abstract fruit. Peach-ish, but not traditionally sweet. The fruit is abstract, in a "I think this smells fruity but not like any I've ever smelled" way. This feels "rounded" and "watery" but I honestly can't explain why I want to use those words to describe it. Very unisex, would be especially sexy on a man.
Dauphine - refined, elegant, ethereal. Unexpectedly obsessed with this one. I'm generally not one for sweet gourmands, and only tossed this one in my order because it seemed the most popular. It opens with a strong almond note, which quickly fades away to a beautiful, clean, warm, skin-scent rose. Gets less and less sweet over time, until it's almost unidentifiable as rose and feels like abstract gardeny woods to me. Ordering a bigger bottle of this!

I was intrigued by other reviews of Jackal, the words "feral" and "dirty" especially. I also was curious because the reviews seem to be split almost 50/50 between people who were devotees and people who were turned off - shout out to the person who thought they might be embarrassed to wear it in public (might have been the sentiment that clinched my purchase).
I am in love with it. I get a lot of bitter chocolate and peaty scotch, and maybe a touch of dirt. It is confidence-boosting; I feel like an absolute siren when I spray it on. I will say that the scent doesn't have a lot of lasting power, as far as I can tell. By the end of the day, I wouldn't be confident to say that I can still smell it, however, maybe it's a smell that I get used to over the course of a few hours.
Layering is really the kicker. It smells even more phenomenal when layered with Smoker (after having smoked), but when I paired it with Realism, I was almost physically repulsed. It smelled like decay and rot. I wonder if the reviewers who bounced off of Jackal so hard were wearing a more floral shampoo, or body wash, and were unknowingly layering those scents.

a lot of enjoyment in that little package in the mail. it's hard to find scents that are bold without being super sweet or super spicy, which is annoying because I feel those kinds of scents "go stale" easily when you're wearing them. grand tour was awesome especially, I got three samples and that was my favorite at first sniff.

I've never had a stranger ask about my perfume but it happened twice while I was rocking one of these (Lartigue). I liked a different one slightly more (Grand tour) so now I'm not sure which one to get a bigger bottle of! The other one I got, Dauphine, was really good too but I tend to go for more masculine scents. I can see myself buying the sample set next time even if I do buy a full bottle, since I've enjoyed having the tiny portable sprays.

I ordered a mix of the small and big (the spray kind) samples, in four scents. I wished I had just gotten the sample set, since the two scents I didn't try (Silent Films and Jackal) I ended up wanting to try. 4 stars is because the packaging for the small 1ml samples is really hard to open. But the smells were great.

Realism is really a real dose of farm smell-cedar chips mainly. A bit too strong for me, but as noted in other review the product is good, just weird!

One thing I loved was that my usual experience of perfume changing immediately from good to bad smell once on did not happen with Goest. But, the Lartigue is kind of odd-almost smells good but not quite!
