Clive Christian 1872 for men - Worth the blind buy?

I've just sold my car, and I'm getting back $600 from my insurance that I I feel like Spending it on Fragrances.

I'm at a stage where I'm trying to cut down my collection to 100 bottles (well 100 fragrances, as I have way too many backup bottles of all my favourites and discontinued) so whilst I could easily get 2-3 back up bottles that are generally expensive, but I know I already like (MFK Universalis, Le Labo Bergamote etc) OR do I get something new, spending an amount I wouldn't usually spend (my usual cut off is $300-$400 and that's when I'm getting 100-125 ml)

Anyway, I figured this might be a good fragrance to buy. Unfortunately the one time I tried it, I was in Dubai, and I was surrounded by so many amazing fragrances, that I'd sampled at least 10 things in the 30 minutes prior to testing it that I really can't be sure what I was smelling.

I'm trying to make a decision in the next 12 hours as eBay has a 10% off promotion for Valentines day, which could mean as much as $56 off if I buy the 100ml or $35 off if I buy the 50 ml

So my questions are.

1. If anyone owns it, what would you compare it to?

2. Do you think if I don't like it, I could get my money back or close to it by decanting/selling 2-5 ml samples at $5-$7/ml (I assume I won't be able to sell the bottle without losing a lot of money)

3. Is this the right Clive Christian for me? I prefer clean/fresh type scents over heavy/spicy fragrances

Thanks in advance
