Perfume shopping!

My sis just bought Vera Wang's Look, and I'm thinking of getting a perfume on my birthday next month but I'd like to go and smell/get samples before then.

Stumbled across the Fragrance Wheel, and figured out I tend to sway towards Fruity, Green, Water and Floral while the others (citrus, oriental, woods etc.) give me headaches.

Probably 'cause my parents used Dior Poison and Fahrenheit when I was a kid >_> They've mellowed out and switched to lighter scents but still not fond of those types of smells. Not to mention, growing up in the Middle East, oriental and woodsy fragrances were evrywhere D:

So far I've tried and liked Acqua di Gio and DKNY's Be Delicious, but they've been limited to samples. I'm a fan of peach, pear and apple fruity scents in perfumes ^^

Anyway, was wondering if y'all have any thoughts on any of the following perfumes:

I'll be getting a bottle of Double Wear foundation from Estee Lauder so should be able to smell and get samples of the first few options. The others though...will need to check Macy's and Sephora and see what works and how many samples I can get ^^

It would help to know if any of them are super strong/heavy and if they fade fast. And if y'all have any recs/ideas of stuff to smell/try, am all ears :D
