May Perfume Sample Fairy Godmother

Esperanza the Perfume Fairy Godmother

Hey, it is time again for the Perfume Sample Fairy Godmother post for May.    Update on Los Angeles LA Scentsation, we have had two cancels and some adds, and I think we still have about 2-3 spaces available with all of that moving around.  If you are still wanting to go, we are taking reservations up until May 10, if we have space.  If you can’t get registered, click on the Drop us a Note at the top of the blog, and we’ll figure someething out!

So here’s how Fairy Godmother works – this post will be open for the entire month of May 2013.   I’ll start a new one at the beginning of June.  I’m still going to be going through last month’s post and grant some wishes. April was a hellish month for me, and I’m so very far behind on life.

For those of you new or that need a reminder of how this works – in comments you can list one thing that you are yearning for and can’t seem to get –  a perfume sample is the easiest wish to grant for me.  Or you can wish for a full bottle, decant, vintage perfume or discontinued perfume you can’t find.  If someone has it and can help you out, they can reply to you in comments and then you can arrange to go offline through e-mail to work things out.  Please don’t post e-mails in comments unless you spoof them somehow, like this – patty at perfumeposse dawtcawm (spelling the dotcom at the end that way prevents robots from finding it as easily). Caveat Emptor and all that, don’t send people money, check out their references on MUA or Basenotes or the Facebook groups before you send something in a swap, if you wind up doing a swap.  We have some amazing Fairy Godmothers that show up every month, granting wishes right and left. If you’ve be a recipient of some kindness, do give back when you can. I know people that have gotten wishes granted, and every month they comb through the posts trying to find one or two people they can help out, and it just makes my heart happy.

If it’s a gift, send away.  I should note that  it’s more likely that a Fairy Godmother will happen along if you are a fairly regular commenter on The Posse and people recognize your name.

I’ll also play Perfume Posse Fairy Godmother and go through the list every month and grant some perfume sample wishes. I’ll pick from ones that nobody has been able to help with – I’ll spin my wheel  – and send them The Precious.

  1. Dear Perfumed Fairy Godmother,

    I had been a good fairy again last month and will probably be one again this month! I am curious about LUSH Sikkim Girls and I would be ecstatic with a spray sample. If you can only decant to a splash vial, that is perfectly fine too as I have extra atomizers.

    Thank you.


    • I live in the U.S. I would also be happy with a tiny sample of Chanel Bois des Iles pure parfum. Thank you.

    • Hi. I can send you a 2,5 ml spray sample of Sikkim Girls. Please email me at merhassel at gmail dot com

  2. I would like to offer some samples to anyone who wants to try of some vintage/discontinued fragrances that I’ve been fortunate to come across. The samples are 1 ml. size and I only have one of each.

    Coty Paris
    De Rauch Miss De Rauch
    Hermes 24 Faubourg
    Jean Desprez Bal a Versailles
    Lanvin My Sin
    Lentheric Tweed
    Lucien Lelong Balalaika
    Mary Chess Yram
    Parfums Gres Cabochard
    Saravel White Christmas – a fun novelty
    Worth Je Reviens
    YSL Opium edt

    • I haven’t tried any of those. I’ve heard so much about the Hermes though, I’d love to try it. I need to see if there isn’t something that I could send you. People have been so generous to me that the guilt of not having been able to give back is doing me in. If there’s nothing that you’re looking for, I’ll be scouring the list for a wish I can grant or putting together a set of samples to post for adoption.

      • Great! Email me your info at shuvanidev at yahoo dot com and I’ll send you that 24 Foubourg 🙂

        • Thank you so much! I’ve emailed you and hope to be able to return the favor.

    • Hi, Mary — I remember how great the original Opium from the 70s was — and just recently realized how awful the current rendition is! I’d love to have your vintage Opium sample if it’s still available. Please email me at fearsmice awt gmail dawt cawm. Meanwhile, I’ll be looking for wishes that I can grant this month!

      • Great! Will do you with some Opium 🙂

          • You are very welcome! Even though it’s an edt, the fragrance is fantastic. When I opened that bottle it was the most beautiful, soft nutmeg. I bought that old bottle because of that one moment :)))

    • Hi Mary, I would love to try the Cabochard and/or the DeRauch, and thank you for the offer. I’m in the US. love to trade, and you can reach me at jdeangeo at aol dot com.

      • Yes, for both the Cabochard and DeRauch! I’ll email you.

        • Hi Jan, just wondering if you got my email?

          • So nice of you to send those! They smell amazing, and I’m happy to have them.

    • I’d like to try the Balaika, Coty Paris and maybe even the White Christmas. My email is thegoddessrena at yahoo dot com

      • Yes on the Balalaika, Coty Paris and White Christmas, I’ll email you.

    • I’ve got about a bottle with about a half inch left that I can send you–It was part of a vintage lot and doesn’t suit me. My yahoo address is the same as my screen name

    • I would like to try My Sin, if it’s still available. My email is connie at ginkwunk dot net. 🙂

      • Hey Connie – I think I can scrounge up a little more for you, I’ll email you.

    • Hi Mary, I would love to try Jean Desprez Bal a Versailles if it is still available. Sounds like one that I would really enjoy! My email is el-benjamino at speakeasy dot net. Thank you so much!

  3. Dear Perfume Fairy Godmother,

    I would be over the moon to try some of Viktoria Minya’s Hedonist, thank you so much, you have been so good to me!!

    • Hi Mary, I’d be happy to send you my sample (I ordered it directly from their website, it’s just a bit too much honey on my skin, which usually amps honey). My email is heather.elizabeth.freeman at gmail . Oh, and I’d love your sample of My Sin, if it’s still available!

      • Oh thank you so much!!! Yes, the My Sin is still available. I’ll email you.

        • I emailed you, let me know if you got it, thanks!

  4. dearest perfume fairy godmother-

    i would love to try a little bit of a chanel exclusifs, especially bois des iles, 31 rue cambon, or coromandel. thank you,, thank you! i am, in the eu.

    • Hi Marta, I can send a little sample of all three. Please email me at mridulakoshyatgmaildotcom

        • Marta,I sent mail to Milano yesterday. My first time sending a decant internationally. I labeled it ‘used cosmetics,eyeshadow and toy.’ Hoping customs is fooled by the rattling sound of the TicTacs I included. Enjoy!

  5. Hello again everyone. I’m gonna shoot for the stars and wish for a sample of Amouage Beloved Man, Opus VII, or Opus I. Since that might not be at all realistic, I’d also be happy with a sample of Dior’s Granville or von Eusersdorff’s Classic Myrrh or Patchouli. Thanks! 🙂

  6. Yipee, I have been waiting for ever or maybe just a month for the Perfume Fairy’s visit. Dear Perfume Fairy I have been very good and have had much goodness showered on me. I want so much this month to receive some of Hermes Un Jardin Mediteranee. If no one has that to share then I am looking for a decant of Un Jardin apres le mousson. I have sampled that and loved it but based on what I have read I believe I would love Meditteranee more even.

    • I just checked and I can send you a decant of ” apres le Mousson”. please, send me a message at irreiter(at)hotmaildotcom, if you’re intrested

      • Irina, I just emailed you and then came by here and saw this. Thank you. I appreciate receiving Apres le Mousson. I am headed back home to India this July/August just as the monsoon will come through. It will be the scent of the season for me.

    • Mridula, I can send you some Hermes Un Jardin en Mediteranee, which I’ve taken to referring to as a smile in a bottle. PM me at bogsc at aol dawt com.

      • Carolyn,, I didn’t think it would be kosher to ask for more than I received – the Apres La Mousson – so this delightful message from you definitely means ‘my cup runneth over.’

  7. Hi Perfume Godmother, I live in Australia so I realise it might be difficult to grant my wish. I once tried a small amount of M.Micallef’s Note Vanillee and absolutely loved it. Apparently it has been discontinued and I can’t seem to find it anywhere, except on ebay for prices I can’t afford. I would love even a small amount of it if it’s at all possible!

    • I wish I still had some, but I can’t find it anywhere either except at astronomical prices. 🙁

      • Thanks for looking anyway, Patty – much appreciated.

  8. Dear Perfume Fairy, I would love so much a decant of Boxeuses
    I promise I’ll be good

    • Irina, I think I can send you a decant! jdeangeo at aol dot com

      • Hi, Jan- just wandering if you got my mail.thanks a lot

  9. Dear Esperanza, the greatest of all Perfume Fairy Godmothers
    I praise you for youw magnificent magic skills and your willing to help!

    I hope that your kind heart will hear my prayers that I’m looking for a citrus with a twist. Probably Eau d’Italie Acqua Decima or Mona di Orio Eau Absolue might be perfect for me. Or perhaps Acqua Nobile Iris from Acqua di Parma?

    I’m hoping to do some magic for other followers of yours Esperanza!

    I’m in Poland

    • Lucasai, I have a rollerball sample of Eau Absolue that is yours if you want it. Email me at e_carlberg-at-email-dot-com.

  10. Dear Esperanza,

    I would absolutely love to try Tauer’s Incense Extreme or Incense Rose. If anyone is able to fulfil my wish it would be greatly appreciated!

    I live in the South Pacific.


    • Hi! I can send you samples of both. Contact me at convallia-at-yahoo-dot-com

  11. To all Godmothers, please allow me to sample Ambrarem, Petroleum or Rosam by Histoires de Parfums.

    • Where are you? I may be able to send a sample vial of Ambrarem.

      • I am in New Zealand. Is it still possible?

  12. This is probably such far out wish but here goes….I’d love to smell Straw Hat again. Made by Faberge, d/c in the 70’s. This was my mom’s best friend’s summer scent in the 60’s and I’d love to smell this once more.

  13. Fairies oh Fairies,

    Wand unto me your unwanted decants of fragrances on Musk/Musc, woody, chypre and amber scents.
    Also Mitsouko, AG Sables, Olfactive Studio, Bond no. 9 and Creed varieties.

    • Hi Red,
      I have a vial of Sables. We can talk amber also…
      J dotbirch12at me dotcom

    • Are there fairies with excess Tom Ford and Parfum Generale fragrances? I read good reviews about these perfumes.

  14. Dear Fairy Godmothers,

    I’d like a sample of Serge Lutens Bas de Soie. I’m in the US. Thanks so much!

    • Hi Dina,

      I have a small sample of Bas de Soie I could send you. Email me at countsjc at gmail dot com with your info.

      • Super! Thanks — I’ll get right on that. 🙂

  15. Hello again perfume godmother. I have been reading reviews of Dries van Noten and would love to sample. Hopefully yours…

    • Hello Jackie b, if you live in the U.S., I would be happy to give you approximately 1.5mLs from my Barneys spray sample. I’m in the minority as this did not work out for me. Click on my name to get my contact info.

      • Oh Hajusuuri, I wish I was in the US…I am in Australia.
        Do you have issues with your postal service? Thankyou for your offer!

        • I simply don’t like to fill out customs forms. Also, if I were to go by the letter of the USPS rules, perfumes are considered flammable materials and therefore, can only be mailed via ground shipping.

  16. Dear Fairy Godmother,

    I’d really love a sample of Andy Tauer’s Noontide Petals or Miriam. You can email me at countsjc at gmail dot com.

  17. Dear Fairy Godmothers

    I’ve been trying to find a sample of Habanita EDP (2012) with no luck, if anyone can spare a drop that would be lovely. I’m in Australia. ruth farrelly at gmail dot com 🙂

    • Hi, I have a partial spray sample of Molinard’s Habanita that I got from First in Fragrance about two years ago. If its what you are looking for I’d be happy to send it! merlynn dot edelstein at g mail dot com

      • Sorry, bad reading! No, I must have the older EDT. Can anyone else help?

  18. Dear Perfume Fairy Godmother –

    I would love to try Atelier’s Rose Anonyme and Lutens La Fille de Berlin.

    Thank you ever so much.

    • Hi Martha, I can help out with the Rose Anonyme–I’ve got a huge bottle now. Email is heather.elizabeth.freeman at gmail 🙂

      • Heather –

        You are the best! Thank you! Emailing now.

  19. Hello perfume fairy godmother,

    I live in the U.S. and I would love to have a sample of Guerlain’s Spiritueuse Double Vanille. I received a sample of it not long ago with only one drop remaining. That drop is long gone! I would be happy to see what I might be able to gift in return. Thanks.

    Debby – debby msrd at comcast dawt net (no spaces and dot misspelled, of course)

  20. I’d love to try Chanel Number 5 – my friend has it and she swears by it, oh and Coco Chanel 🙂

    • Hi Rach – are you in the US? If so, I’d be happy to send you a little Coco edp. My email is opponatrix at gmail dot com

    • Dear Rach, If you still desire Chanel No5, I can send a small sample of vintage (1970) pure perfume. I don’t know if this smells like the current No5 because it’s the only bottle I have ever owned. Email me at Mwallworkatcarolina.rrdotcom.

  21. Greetings!!

    Last month Esperanza used the services of hajusuuri to make my wish come true.

    If someone out there has Acqua Universalis Forte Maison by Francis Kurkdjian I would gladly Paypal you for 5ml or so.

    thanks =0|

  22. Hello, dear FG,

    I would love to try a little Neela Vermeire Trayee. Thank you very much.

    • Hi LaurenW: I’ve got a sample I can send you, courtesy of another fabu fairy godmother. Send me an email at lisadarty at hot mail dot com.

  23. Dear Fairy Godmother, you have been good to me, so I will give it another try. I’d love to sample a Patricia de Nicolai, either Le Temps d’une Fete or Musc Intense. Please email me at patricialschneider at yahoo dot com. I live in the US.

    Thanks, and I’ll keep looking over the comments to see if I can help you make someone else’s wish come true.

    • I can help with both of those (though only a tiny bit of Temps d’un Fete), and some other PdN if you’re interested. Sending an email 🙂

    • Hi Fleurdelys,

      I have a sample of PdN L’Eau a la Folie if you’re interested. You can email me at countsjc at gmail dot com.

  24. Tiara, Wish Granted! I accidentally posted my response to you somewhere else but I’ve. Got a bottle of Straw Hat that I got in a vintage lot. It doesn’t suit me and there’s about a half inch of perfume left(not sure of original bottle volume). My yahoo address is the same as my screen name

  25. Dear Fairy Godmother,

    I am in the U.S. I would love some Penhaligon’s. I have a bit of amaranthine and really like it. I would like to try some of the others like malabah, artemisia, ellenisia, cornubia, gardenia, peoneve, lily of the valley, orange blossom.

    Thank you!

    • I think I still have a small amount of Malabah in a sample.. I’ll have to verify I still have it when I get home from work but I’m pretty sure I still do and I can send it to you My email is countsjc at gmail dot com.

      • Jamie/Jennifer, If Jennifer doesn’t have the Malabah, I can provide you with a large sample. bogsc at aol dawt com.

    • Hi Jamie, I have some Artemisia and Peoneve I’d be very happy to send you! ruth farrelly at gmail dot com

  26. First of all, my past fairy godmothers have been so wonderful that I can’t thank them enough! This month, I am seeking a decant of Serge Lutens A La Nuit, or Montale Jasmin Full, or L’Artisan Bois Farine. Any one of the three would be greatly appreciated. I can offer some excellent goodies in return and I will be generous! Thanks in advance, fragrant friends 🙂

  27. this month I’d like some galbanum goodness. I’m thinking of either Sikkim or vintage Safari but I’d be happy to try anything, vintage or current that contains galbanum (except for Inoui, Ivoire, and The Bug since I already own those)

    • Galbanum is a favorite of mine. Have you tried Silences, AG Heure Exquise, No. 19 in edt or edp? Send me your details at dina church at veri2on dawt calm (no spaces, spelled correctly) and I’ll do my best to share the galbanum goodies. 🙂

      • Dina C–I tried the email you listed but it bounced back, so I saw that you. Had listed. Your address as being dot net for someone else so I tried that. Let me know if you got it. Thanks.

  28. Fairy Godmother, my mother wore je Revien and I have not smelled it for years. A vintage sample would be like having a little piece of her to remember my email is ellendawtbyrne at medawtcom. ( Dawt = . Of course)

    • I can send you some Je Revien so you can remember your mother – might be able to get it there for Mother’s Day. I’ll email you.

      • I just tried to email you and it got sent back so I tried it a different way – let me know if you got it. Thanks!

        • hi Mary. thank you SO much! , no email yet,

          • I just resent – hopefully third times the charm 🙂

  29. I think I can help you there. I’ll check after work. jdeangeo at aol dot com

  30. Jackie, my replies seem to be falling to the bottom of the page, I’ll be happy to help. jdeangeo at aol dot com

  31. Oh dear, I’m in trouble, Perfume Fairy! One of your lovely earthly assistants sent me a sample of Guerlain Attrape Coeur (Guet Apens) and I fell in love at first dab. I was ready to buy a FB on just one dab! Searched high and low and then discovered it has been…discontinued. ::sob:: Wonder if someone has a wee amount just sitting around, someone who doesn’t love and adore chypres like I do. Just maybe.

    • Hi Deanna, Are you in the US? If so, I can help you out with a few mls (I came into a large-ish decant, and love it, but I love so many things…). My email is heather.elizabeth.freeman at gmail 🙂

  32. Dear Esperanza, I would love a chance to explore Les Exclusifs de Chanel, so if anyone has a smidge of Bois des Iles, Sycomore, Coromandel or any of the others to spare, I would be absolutely delighted.

    And I adore the idea of being someone’s fairy godmother, so I am doing my best to earn this prestigious title by scanning the comments and granting the wishes I can. 🙂

    • Ella, you’re my Perfume Fairy Godmother so I will be your Godfather 🙂 I’ve got some Sycomore for you, yippie

    • Ella,
      I can send you Bois des Iles if nobody else is. Email me at dina church at veri2on dawt net (no spaces, spelled correctly) and give me your details. 🙂

      • This thread is so heartwarming!

        You guys are the best! Emails all around. 🙂

  33. I have been a good Fairy godmother in march and april and now I hope some one can be my Fairy godmother. I live in Sweden so I hope someone will ship to me. I wish to try pc01 by biehl parfumkunstwerke, or Iris de Nuit by HEELEY, or Iris Silver Mist by Serge Lutens. I hope I have something to send in return. My email is birgit dot lindgren at gmail dot com

    • Hello Birgit, if you can find a U.S. scent mule from your legions of fans, I would be happy to send you a 5mL decant from my bell jar :-). Click on my name to get my contact info.

    • Hi Birgit, I have a small sample of Iris de Nuit by Heeley if no one else has responded about this one. Happy to ship to Sweden. Email me at mwallworkatcarolinadotrrdotcom.

      • Hi Melanie, thank you, that’s very kind of you, I will send you an email.

  34. Dear fairy godmother,
    I would love a sample of the discontinued Gucci Envy. I’m in the US. Email me at connie at ginkwunk dot net

    • Connie, I can help you out with the Envy. Just shoot me an email to pattor at rcn dot com.

  35. Dearest perfume fairy godmother, I would love a sample of SSS Cocoa Sandalwood, Parfums DelRae Panache or Jo Loves a Shot of Thai Lime over Mango. I live in the US. Thank you so much!

    • Hi, Odonata9 — I can send you a bit of Panache; email me at fearsmice awt gmail dawt cawm.

    • I can help you with a sample of Cocoa Sandalwood. My email is clevelandvitz1 at gmail dawt com

    • Hi Elisa. I’m pretty sure I have either a sample or small decant of Manoumalia so can give you at least enough for a few wears. I’ll look when I get home. bogsc at aol dawt com.

      • Elisa, I can’t seem to find my decant of Manoumalia anywhere. So sorry. Calling all perfume fairy godmothers, can someone help Elisa out with some Manoumalia since as it turns out I’m unable to do so?

  36. Hello Fairy Godmothers! This month I’m wishing hard for a decant of Frederic Malle Carnal Flower. I’m in the US. Cheers!

    • Hello Emily S, I can send you a 2.5mL spray decant from my decant. Click on my name for my contact info.

      • Thank you so much hajusuuri! I just emailed you : )

  37. Dear Wonderful Fairy Godmother(s),
    I’m looking for some Unknown Pleasures by Kerosene. I’m a big gourmand fan and someone told me I would love it so now I’m curious…

    • I forgot to say I live in the US and can be reached at clevelandvitz1 at gmail dot com

  38. Dear fairy godmother,
    I’m from Spain, Europe, and there are some awesome fragances that I can’t try…but Strange Invisible Perfumes is something I really NEED to smell! specially in the pure perfume form: Urban lilly, Tosca, Musc Botanique, Narcotic,Lyric Rain, Black Rosette…I can’t choose just one.

    Thank you!!!

    • Joaquim, Hey dear! I’ve given away most of my samples of SIP but I do have a bottle of Magazine Street, which is my favorite of the whole line and I’m happy to send you a generous sample. bogsc at aol dawt com.

      • You have an e-mail, Carolyn! Thank you so much again!

    • Hi Joaquim,

      I have a small decant of Black Rosette (about 2.5ml) that I can send you. Email me at countsjc at gmail dot com. I know I had a small sample of Musc Botanique but I can’t seem to find it. If I locate it I’ll throw that in too.

  39. Dear Fairy Godmother, I’d love a decant of Serge Lutens Un Lys or L’Artisan’s Voleur de Roses. I’m also open to a sample of House of Matriarch Destiny.

    I live in the US and you can reach me at cgrasher at gmail dot com

    Thank you!

    • Hey, Colleen, I can hook you up with some Un Lys. I will email you to get your address.

  40. I’m still hoping to sniff some Guerlain Arsene Lupin Dandy. If fairy has trouble with that request again this month then perhaps a bit of Fragonard’s Desert or Madini’s Ambargris? All of these have been on my “to sniff wishlist” for almost 2 years now. Will list some reverse fairy godmother samples I’d like to share in an additional post a bit later as well.

    • I caved and purchased a sample of Guerlain Arsene Lupin Dandy. So can anyone hook me up with even a smidge of Fragonard Desert or Madini Ambergris? Or provide me with reputable seller where I can get small bottle of Madini Ambergris? Found it sold at Talisman Perfumes, but have never run across them before and they don’t seem to accept paypal, which always makes me nervous when I’m dealing with unfamiliar company.

      • Okay, did some searching on Basenotes and found that Talisman is the source for Madini Oils. Now have another question for all you fairy perfume godmothers. I’m going to get a small bottle of Ambergris for sure. Also planning to get a sample set of these 5: Sahara, Azohar, Oud, Jasmine, Henna. Any experienced Madini users out there that want to suggest others I might want to try in addition/instead of these 5?

  41. Dearest Fairy Godmother, I had such a wonderful time gifting and receiving samples in April! Thank you! This month, I would LOVE to try Agonist Vanilla Marble. I can’t seem to find it in the US. I would also like to try Viktoria Minya Hedonist. I am new to the perfume world and am willing to try anything really but I am partial to gourmand, oriental vanilla and floral. In return, I am able to swap the following samples (US perfumistas preferred):
    I Profumi de Firenze Vaniglia & Fichi (fig)
    La Maison de Vanille Absolu Vanille
    L’Artisan Parfumeur Havana Vanille
    Nicolai Vanilla Intense
    M. Micallef Vanilla Oud
    Reminiscence Vanille

    Please contact me at bkcpeanut at gmail dawtcom!

  42. Okay, I admit it, what I’m really *wishing* for is a smidge or more of vintage Mitsouko extrait. I’ve got a decant of the contemporary EDT, and it seems like a shadow of what I remember from back in the day. I’m in the US by the way.

    And just generally speaking, you perfume fairy godmother’s are a beautiful, generous bunch! Thanks for all the magic!

  43. I forgot to mention I also have Sinfonia de Note Dolce Vanille available for swap! Email at bkcpeanut a gmail etc.

  44. Dear Fairy Godmother! Thank you for granting some of my wishes in the past! I have been curious for some time about AG’s Heure Exquise. Would I like it?

    • Hi Katrin! I’m afraid I don’t have any Heure Exquise to offer, but I can send you a few other AG’s (Grand Amour, Eau du Sud, perhaps a few others) if you’re in the US. Let me know if these interest you. My email address is emily(dawt)s(dawt)joeckel at gmail(dawt)cawm. I hope someone else can send you your Heure Exquise : )

      • Thank you Emily for your kind offer of other AGs but I am interested in only Heure Exquise, and I am in Europe,
        forgot to mention that. Sorry!

        • Oh, shucks! Well I hope some HE comes your way : )

  45. Hello again Fairy Godmother! First I’d like to thank the lovely people who have been my FGs in the recent months, and I hope to find someone in the upcoming comments I can make a happy perfumista. This month I’m itching to try Kerosene Unknown Pleasures or Opus Oils/Perfume Pharmer Strawberry Passion (green)! Email me at crazkcfish at gee, mail! dot calm, and have a great rest of the month, everyone : )

  46. Dear Fairies,

    My wish this month is still for some Vintage Vetiver by Guerlain.

    I could also wish for an introduction to Arquiste, with Anima Dulcis and Aleksandr sounding the most interesting.
    I’m in the EU.


    • I can help with one of those. Not sure how old my Guerlain vetiver is or how old you’re looking for! Contact me at patty at perfumeposse dotcom, remind me what I’m sending you and your address!

  47. Dear Esperanza, I keep looking to see if I can fulfill any wishes but so far no luck. I’ll keep looking though.
    My wish this month is for something that’s not technically a perfume but it can be used like one. I want to try Aftelier Ancient Resins body oil/hair elixir. The idea of an incense oil I can layer under perfume and use in my hair sounds wonderful to me. Can anyone spare a few drops?

    • Poodle, I can if you are in the US 🙂

    • I agree with you Poodle, it sounds absolutely wonderful! (My first thought was “yeah, who wouldn’t want to smell like Leonard Cohen” but realized the answer might not be so obvious to everyone. 😉 )

  48. Dear Esperanza, I was able to help someone last month so I hope you will grant me my wishes!
    I’m looking for a sample or small decant of Chanel Bel Respiro from the Les Exclusifs line. My other wish is for a sample of Olifactive Studio’s Lumiere Blanche. (I am in the US.)

    • Hi, I’d be happy to send you a few mls of Bel Respiro. My email is heather.elizabeth.freeman at gmail 🙂

  49. Hi I was wondering if any fairies out there can magic up any Parfum de Nicolai samples? I would really like to try Sacrebleu or Sacrebleu Intense, Vanille Tonka or L’eau Mixte. I live in South Africa…

    • Hi Merlin! I can help out with a Vanille Tonka sample – lisadarty at hotmail dot com.

      • Lisa, thank you so much – I’ll email you now!!!

      • And in case you can’t see my Gravatar: I am at merhassel at gmail dot com 🙂

        • Thank you so much – I’m sending an e mail!

  50. I don’t know if this is possible here but I would like to make a different way, a summer 2013 fairy offer. To any active member who plans a summer vacation in Canada and would include to visit my town, a tourist National Park or the city I am based later, I offer half bottle (50ml) of Thierry Mugler Innocent. Kindly comment here and write me matinee13th at live dot com if you are the one. I might include another fragrance surprise.

    • This offer is from active member outside Canada. After this month, if nobody outside Canada is interested, it will be open for members within Canada.

      • correction, typo error…

  51. Dearest FG and friends,

    I would really love a small decant of MDCI Coeur en Mai. Failing that, would be thrilled to try L’Artisan Numero 1. On something of a hyacinth and pear kick if late. Thank you!

    • Hi! I can help you with the MDCI. Contact me at patty at perfumeposse dotcom, remind me what I’m sending you and your address!

  52. I’m back, Esperanza! As I said, you have been so good to me (and thanks to all your helpers who made my sample wishes come true), I’d like to return the favor. I have the following sample vials for anyone who might like them:

    Elixir des Merveilles (Hermes)
    Private Label (Jovoy)
    Interlude Woman (Amouage)
    Interlude Man (Amouage)
    Wazamba (Parfum d’Empire) – not marked as such, picked up at MiN New York

    If interested, please email me at patricialschneider at yahoo dot com.

    • I’m emailing you in the hope Elixir des Marveilles and Wazamba are still available

  53. All samples have been taken! Glad I was able to grant some wishes.

  54. Time for some reverse fairy godmother offerings. These samples would all love a new home.

    • Hi Carolyn,

      I would really like to try some Dune. I’ve read heaps about it but it hasn’t crossed my path yet. My email is shuvanidev at yahoo dawt com

      Thanks so much for your generous offerings!

    • I’d be interested in costes 2, Invisible Monster and Bill Blass Nude. My yahoo adress is the same as my scren name

    • I’d be interested in Micallef Aoud Homme and Ninfeo Mio, and I wouldn’t mind having Lolita and Lavande Velours to spend more time with.
      eliared at[yahoo]] do]t com
      I’m in the EU

    • I would love to try DelRae’s Emotionnelle, I have yet to experience anything from that line. Thank you so much for your generosity. Email me at connie at ginkwunk dot net.

    • Oh Damn. I really wanted to try Invisible Monster — very nearly put it down as my wish this month — but it looks like someone beat me to it.

    • Mary, Goddess Rena, Elia, Fears Mice – Will send samples out to all of you. Think I have your addresses already and will follow up privately if I don’t. Connie, will contact you for your address shortly . Mariekel, hope someone else can help you with a sample of Invisible Monster. If it’s any consolation, I LOVE many of CBIHP’s scents and this one wasn’t a favorite.

      I think all that’s left now is the YSL Parisienne – 1ml. May list some other reverse fairy godmother offers later in the month. Really trying to get on top of all my samples! Everyone has been so incredibly generous in terms of sharing their scents/expertise with me over the last few years so I’m pleased that I can do something to pay it forward!

  55. Im in Europe 🙂
    Getting tired of trying to imagine what amouages Gold smell like ! Would love to get My hands on a sample 🙂 , Its not one for blind buying I understand..

    • Hi Lotta, I have a tiny smidge of Gold which I’d be happy to send if you don’t get a better offer! ruth farrelly at gmail dot com 🙂

  56. USA here. How do I find Le Labo Musk 25? It’s my Unicorn. Lez Nez Turtle Exercise Front? Amouage Arcus?

    • Hi! I’m happy to grant your wish for the le Labo Musk 24. Contact me at patty at perfumeposse dotcom, remind me what I’m sending you and your address!

      • OMG I love you! Thank you. You are amazing.

  57. I’m just crazy about Luckyscent’s L’antichambre collection, but have not yet succeeded in obtaining samples of Coup de Coeur and Le Chocolat Ambre (not sure why LS is not offering samples of those two). If anyone has any of those two would love to swap. Thanks! xo

    • Sherri, I’ve got you covered for Coup de Coeur! I’m jdeangeo at aol dot com.

    • Sherri, please resend your address to me for the Coup de Coeur. jdeangeo at aol dot com.

  58. Dare I ask if anyone has even a teeny bit of l’Artisan Fleur d’Oranger?

  59. @Ruth
    That smidge would be more Than welcome!
    Sweet of you, Will mail 🙂

  60. They fairy flew to the Post Office today! Did my best for you all.
    So, on that happy note……Whenever I receive the wonderful samples fellow fairies have sent me, I keep them separated so I can thank the individuals who sent them, and comment on the samples. When I returned home from work, I found my niece, the sweet, helpful soul, had neatly put all my unsmelled samples in a large Ziplock bag. Arrrrrrggggg! I was nearly homicidal, but I gritted my teeth and mentally spanked my hand for not telling her to stay out of my unsmelled stuff. Poor thing was simply trying to clear a space to do her last bit of homework, and, as usual the junk around my computer was totally piled past the keyboard.

  61. Dear Fairy GM,
    I’d like to amend my earlier wish to something easier =o/
    If there is some Shalimar LIGHT out there, I’d be glad to Paypal you for about 5ml or so.

  62. Esperanza? How about a different wish?
    Eau d’Italie Jardin du Poete


    • Patty, I just looked that up, had never heard of it. It sounds wonderful! If I get a sample, I’ll split it with you.

      • Thank you!
        That’s the best news I heard all month!!!!!!!


  63. OK, I found it, now we wait, lol. So, send your address (I think I have it, but not positive) to jdeangeo at aol dawt com
