I'm all for creativity, but on the side of the buyers, I just think it would be nice if there was something more to help us have a bit more confidence in what we're purchasing, be that more reviews or the knowledge that the product has repeat buyers.

However, the fact that there were sample sizes at least for the zodiac blends (and I will say I really loved getting that free sample with my first order) makes me wonder if it might be possible to do a limited sample run of certain blends? Say, every month four or so blends (maybe the previous month's best sellers or just favorites chosen by the staff) would be offered in sample sizes while supplies lasted, and these would be blended and packaged ahead of time in one go to reduce labor. It might be a reasonable compromise to at least offer some blends as samples every so often. Actually, a sort of "blend of the month" program sounds like a lot of fun too.
Ahh but I don't really know how things work on Adagio's end. I can keep hoping at least
