June Perfume Sample Fairy Godmother

Esperanza the Perfume Fairy Godmother

Hey, it is time again for the Perfume Sample Fairy Godmother post for June.    

So here’s how Fairy Godmother works – this post will be open for the entire month of June 2013.   I’ll start a new one at the beginning of July.  

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 random.org wheel  – and send them The Precious.

So what is it that your heart desires?  (pulling out wand from the back of the closet and blowing off an inch of dust)

    I know June is almost over but I would LOVE, LOVE LOVE to try joy de jean patou.

  • Civet says:

    Hi there, fairy godmothers of June! I would love to try Tom Ford’s Sahara Noir if anyone has a bit to spare.

    I would also like to offer up some very generously sized decants of Jo Malone Black Vetyver Cafe and The Body Shop Rose Oud (I think this had a limited release and it is very nice). These will be accompanied by samples of varying quantity and quality (if you receive Nicole Ritchie or Jessica Simpson’s latest gem I apologize in advance but such is the luck of the draw). So sorry, but limited to US or Canada. Please gmail me if interested: civetohell

  • bohobabe says:

    Dear Fairy Godmother,
    This is my first time writing to you because I’m just dying to try Vero Profumo’s Onda & Mito and L’Artisan Parfumeur Passage d’Enfer. Can anyone help grant my wish? I’m far though from where everyone seems to be… all the way in Malaysia. My gmail is angiezt.
    Thank you so much!

  • Kacey says:

    Happy June, fairy godmothers! My dream is to sniff a drop of vintage YSL Paris or Yvresse, and – if that vintage champagne fix is a little on the unattainable side – Sonoma Scent Studio Champagne de Bois. Thanks again to past FGs : ) I can be reached at crazkcfish at gee, mail! dawt calm.

  • LaurenW says:

    hello, perfume fairy! So far I’ve been a fairy twice and been blessed by the fairy twice (thanks Heather F and Lisa D).
    I’m intrigued by the Kerosene line and would like to try either Creature or Copper Skies.

  • Sherri says:

    Hi Fairy Godmothers, this is a longshot but I am looking for samples of Reminiscence Do Re, Mi Fa or Sol La…or i Profumi Firenze Frangipane e Coco. 🙂 Thanks all you great FG’s!!!

  • lucasai says:

    I think my wishes for June are too excessive. So maybe someone can at least treat me to some Hermes Mandarine Ambree?

  • Jan Last says:

    Carolyn, I’d love the Balenciaga and the Kenzo. And, as always, I am jdeangeo at aol dot com

  • Carolyn C says:

    • mridula says:

      Could I ask for the Tom Ford Noir and Neroli Portofino and the CBIHP #3?

    • Carolyn C says:

      MAC MV2 – 1/2ml sample

      • Elia says:

        MAC, Pink sugar, Penhaligon’s

      • Carolyn C says:

        All now claimed. Everyone has been e-mailed. I may have some other offerings later in the month.

    • Yulina says:

      Carolyn, can I get the YSL and Ginestet botrytis ?

  • Shirley says:

    Dear Perfume Fairy Godmother,
    I am looking for a CLEAN Lather sample. I’ve read so many good things about it, but I can’t seem to get it here (I live in Holland). I would be really, really thankful if you were able to grant my wish! 🙂

  • Yulina says:

    Dear Fairy Godmother,
    I really wish for Alien Essence Absolue, either the sample or the mini. Also Fragonard’s Fleur de Vanille. I live in Indonesia, so this one might be hard though…

  • Jamie says:

    Yes Elly! That’s me. I’ll email you.

  • Beth says:

    Dear Fairy Godmother,

    I was finally able to fill someone else’s wish, so I don’t feel quite so greedy for requesting one of my own! 🙂 I’m dying to try Mona di Orio’s Vanille. I am starting to explore the deep delicious vanillas, and if you can’t find the MdO Vanille, I’d happily try the Guerlain Spirtuese Double Vanille. I got to wear one spritz on my arm in Vienna and I’m trying to remember if it was as good as I thought, or that was only the joy of being in Vienna.

    • Sherri says:

      Hi Beth, I can get you some of each! Just e-mail me at sherrimiller at me dot com! 🙂

      • Beth says:

        Oh Sherri, that’s so sweet, I’ll drop an email to you 🙂 thanks!!

      • Beth says:

        I would just like to say, my fairy godmother was the BEST! I am soooo thankful 🙂 She went over and above x10! Thank you Fairy Godmother!

  • Jamie says:

    Elly, I can grant your wish for the Guerlain Mon Precieux Nectar!

    • Elly says:

      Thanks Jamie! Are you the same Jamie as the one I helped above? If not, could you please email me at hello elly 123 (no spaces) at gmail?

  • Elly says:

    Dear Fairy Godmother,

    I would love to try anything floral/feminine from the Montale line (in particular Black Aoud) since I can’t smell them without buying a sample. Or Guerlain Mon Precieux Nectar (or any of the other Guerlains that come in that same bottle style). Thank you!

    • rosarita313 says:

      Elly, if you’re not in a hurry I can send you some Black Aoud, just need to get some empty vials. Email me at opponatrix at gmail.

  • fleamarketjunkie says:

    dear fairy godmother, I have just discovered this blog and this post, fantastic!! I have a Flower of Immortality by Kilian that I am willing to send to you Jamie. It just doesn’t mesh with my chemistry. If anyone has a Tam Dao or Carnal Flower sample I would be grateful, you can reach me at jmm31498 through yahoo, you know the rest. Thanks and hope I can send it out soon.

    • leathermountain says:

      I’ve actually got two Tam Dao samples, so one is going to the goddessrena, and fleamarketjunkie, you are welcome to have the other. I’m emailing you now.

  • dinazad says:

    HI! I could send you a Nahema Micro-Mini – there’s enough Extrait in there for two or three wearings (dabbed lightly, which I recommend). Mail me at convallia-at-yahoo-dot-com.

  • leathermountain says:

    Dear Perfume Fairy Godmother,

    I wish for Guerlain’s Nahema Parfum / Extrait. I desire enough to wear a few times, so I can semi-rationally decide whether to drop the $326….

    Another wish — is this breaking the one-wish rule, do you think? — I wish to debut as a Perfume Fairy Godmother. I’ve been searching other people’s wishes with no luck, as my collection is, so far, pretty small. But there must be others like me, skulking around and trying to find a chance to give first and ask later. So, to grant my wish, please go ahead and ask me for one of the following intriguing, lightly-used samples:

    Dans Tes Bras (Malle)
    L’Wren Scott (Barney’s)
    Notes (Piguet)
    Tam Dao (Diptyque)
    Volutes (Diptyque)
    Valentina (Valentino)
    plus Sephora samples of Hermes: Jardins Med, Nil, and Toit, Voyage EdT and EdP, and Terre, as well as Cartier Declaration — for anyone who can’t easily access Sephora’s largesse.

    My apologies: I’m sure I’ll eventually figure out how to send things abroad, but for now I’m going to start with US only.

    From your heretofore secret admirer.

  • Heather F says:

    I’d love to try any of the Tommi Sooni perfumes, and would be happy to swap. My email is heather.elizabeth.freeman at gmail 🙂 Thanks!

  • Farouche says:

    I’d be interested in trying Love, Chloe if anyone can spare a sample. Thanks!

  • ojaddicte says:

    Dear Fairy Fragmother,

    Thank you for all the goodies that I have received in the past few months! I am hoping to be able to reciprocate the generosity you have bestowed on me.
    I thought I was all good, but now realize I have never tried any of the Parfums de Nicolai. I would be grateful for a sample of any of them, particularly Odalisque.
    Thank you so much!

  • Maureen says:

    Dear Perfume Fairy,

    I have always wanted to try the older version of EL Bronze Goddess (although I cannot get tan, I burn & I had a bout with skin cancer,so SPF 50+ for me all the time, but I’d love to smell like a bronze Goddess!) I have a few samples I could swap. My address is mruf1 at yahoo dawt com. Thanks.

    • poodle says:

      I think I have the one you’re looking for and I’d be happy to send you some. I’ll email you shortly.

  • Katrin says:

    Dear Perfume Fairy! I would love to try Jean-Louis Scherrer, either old or new. (Location EU). Thank you!

    • Jan Last says:

      Katrin, I have a very nice vintage Scherrer, circa 1981. I’ll be happy to send you some. I am jdeangeo at aol dot com

  • rosefan says:

    Dear Fairy Godmother,

    A drop of Mona di Orio’s Oud, Vanille or Cuir would absolutely make my day.

    Thank you to all.

    • FeralJasmine says:

      I can send you a sample of the Vanille. I’m wooddogs3 at gmail…you know the rest!

    • FeralJasmine says:

      I’m so sorry, I just saw that you’re outside the US. I’m afraid I can’t do that; they ask you directly at the post office if there is any liquid in the package, and I can’t look them in the eye and lie to them. Again, I apologize.

    • Heather F says:

      I can send you samples of all 3 (and throw in some other samples, if I’m already paying the international postage). Let me know if there’s anything else you’re lemming these days. My email is heather.elizabeth.freeman at gmail 🙂

  • RuthF says:

    Hi All
    This is probably a big ask but I’d love to try a drop of Fracas pure parfum. Also, last month I requested Habanita EDP, the 2012 version but had no luck, if anyone could spare a drop of that I would be so grateful! I have lots of samples and decants that I’d be happy to share 🙂 ruthfarrelly at gmail dawt com

    • Carolyn C says:

      Ruth, I can help you with a smidge of Fracas pure parfum. E-mail me at bogsc at aol dawt com.

    • Christine W says:

      Hi Ruth, I bit the bullet and bought a bottle of the new Habanita EDP! It’s on its way from the US – happy to send you a sample when I receive it 🙂 XChristine

  • What an adorable Perfume Sample Fairy Godmother…I have loved perfume, since i was a
    young girl! My Aunt Annie worked in cosmetics and would bring me home, samples of perfume
    and other fun items. When I would go to her home for a visit, she had all kinds of beautiful perfume
    bottles on a glass mirror on her dresser. I would enjoy being surprised by you, Fairy Godmother.
    Many thanks, Cindi

    • thegoddessrena says:

      What a fun attitude! I can definitely send some random samples your way. I’ll email you shortly

    • merettah says:

      Hi, I can send you a little mix of samples to surprise you too – will email you now to get your address 🙂

    • Jan Last says:

      That will be fun! I am a big fan of random! I am jdeangeo at aol dot com

  • Amy K says:

    Dear Perfume Fairy,

    I would really love to find more Les Bains du Marais Musc Blanc Eau de Soin, since it appears that it’s no longer sold outside of France and I don’t have any plane tickets. Thanks!

  • Teri says:

    Hello to all.

    I’ve heard so much about Ormonde Jayne Woman over the years but have yet to find a sample. I’d love to try it, if anyone has a smidge to share.

    • thegoddessrena says:

      I’m on a roll this month. I’m pretty sure I’ve got a sample of this around. My screen name is what I use for my yahoo address.

      • Teri says:

        Wow – thank you most kindly indeed! I haven’t found anyone I can enable yet this month, but if not this month, then next, I’m sure.

        I’ll be emailing you. My addy has talk, my name, and the number 2, so you can recognize me.

  • Cheryl G. says:

    Hello all,
    I need, want, have to have some So Pretty by Cartier. I simply cannot explain it. It never interested me when it was readily available, and now that it’s discontinued, well….you know. Hopeless!

    • Connie says:

      I have a good sized sample/small decant that I can send you (and that I received from the wonderful Jan a few months ago). My email is connie at ginkwunk dot net.

  • Beck says:

    Good morning to you all,

    I would love to sample M by Puredistance or Derby by Guerlain. I am more than happy to trade for some of my own samples.

    Thank you,

    Beck

  • Carolyn C says:

    I’m missing New Orleans at the moment and would love to try anything from Bourbon French Parfums or Hove Parfumeur, both of which are based in New Orleans if anyone has sample(s) they can share. Thanks! Will list some reverse fairy godmother offerings later in the week.

    • susan says:

      I might have something for you! Let me root around tonight. In the meantime please email me at somerss at gmail dot com. 🙂 🙂

  • Jamie says:

    Dear Fairy Godmother,

    I have a pretty grand wish this month. I would love a decant of Byredo Gypsy Water or Flower of Immortality/Bamboo Harmony By Kilian. I know that’s a big wish… My smaller wish, would be for a decant of Serge Lutens Gris Clair.

    Thank you!

    • thegoddessrena says:

      I can’t give you a decant but I’m pretty sure I’ve a manufacturer’s sample of Bamboo Harmony if you want it. My yahoo address is the same as my screen name

    • Elly says:

      I have some SL Gris Clair I can spare. Email me at hello elly 123 (no spaces) at gmail

    • hajusuuri says:

      Hello Jamie! Hajusuuri here. I can send you some Byredo Gypsy Water. You can get my contact info by clicking on my name. I’m pretty sure I know which Jamie it is but I just want to be sure!

    • Fleamarketjunkie says:

      Hi Jamie,
      I have a Flower of Immortality I can send you, you can contact me at jmm31498 at yahoo if you want it.

  • sasha says:

    I am fully stocked this month and honestly can’t think of anything I want. But I wanted to note that I was a terrible fairy godmother in April and have just this week got my packages ready to send. Better late than never I suppose 🙂

  • E.Lime says:

    I am hoping to try Hermessence Vetiver Tonka. I would be happy to swap for it if I have any samples that people would like. It’s plinkplath at yahoo (you know the rest!).

  • Dear Perfume Fairy,

    I’d really like a sample of Serge Lutens Fille en Aiguilles. I’ve sniffed it once but didn’t try it on, and I’ve been thinking about it.

  • mridula says:

    Hello dear fairy god mother/s,

    I am looking for any amount of Frederic Malle’s Une Rose. if this isn’t possible I am just as desperate to acquire some Bois des IIles in edp. I have some edt that turns to water on my skin. Thank you.

    • mridula says:

      Hello, I’m changing my request in case the above is impossible. May I ask instead for Rose Chypre from Andy Tauer or any of his other perfumes. I have sampled and loved Le Maroc pour Elle and Rose Vermeille, as well. I am hoping for a small decant of Rose Chypre but from what I have sniffed of his creations i don’t think he can do any wrong so I would love to sample anything by him.

  • Merlin says:

    A total of 5 non-Americans…

    • Jan Last says:

      That’s OK, I ship to non-Americans, we’re all in this together.

      • merettah says:

        I think that is great! :-). I ship outside of the EU as well, and I think it is great that others are willing to the other way. I hope the flags will not mean less of this,as of course it could make it easier for people who can find enough recipients not abroad to exclude the others. I am new here – and in the perfume world – and to me it is great being able to share the discovery and joy of perfume this way. Last month I had the joy of sending something to two people in other parts of the world that they wished for, and enjoyed receiving, one was a swap the other not. II enjoyed it, and I hope the feeling of ‘we are all in this together’, will remain on this wonderful, kind and sharing site 🙂

      • Merlin says:

        Thanks Jan, I respect people’s decision either way, since I know the US postal service has extra restrictions. I guess I just had a fearful ‘minority’ moment:) Thanks for being so inclusive!

        • Jan Last says:

          No problem. And I do just look em right in the eye and say “soap samples”. Since they all know me, it’s kind of a wink, wink, nod situation.

  • Patty says:

    Look, flags!!!! Jan suggested this could make it easier to know if you can help someone or not, if you can’t always send overseas. So you should see country flags on each comment, and you can hover your cursor over the icon to see which country it is. How fun. Thanks, for suggesting it, Jan!

    • Jan Last says:

      And thank you, for listening and for helping!

      • mridula says:

        I was faiy godmotherfrom the US to someone in Italy last month and the package never got there. Kind of a heart breaker.

        • Merlin says:

          Oh no! That is awful. I’m always aware of there being a risk, but so far everything I have sent out, and everything that has been sent to me, has arrived. I can see how such an experience would make me nervous.

          • mridula says:

            Part of why I feel bad about the package never showing up is I wonder if I had just waited a day or so before offering to be her fairy if someone else (in EU) wouldn’t have and then she would have received what she wanted. Maybe I am over thinking the whole thing. I’ve just had so much fun receiving and giving and people are so very generous. This really is a wonderful community.

            I still have a package I am sending to Israel in return for being a recipient of a fairy from there.

          • Merlin says:

            Theft is a big problem in South Africa and so for a few months I did not respond to requests at all. If someone responded to my requests I offered them several things in return. I figured that if what I sent went missing, at least the person would not miss out on something they had specifically requested.
            Then, I decided I was being over-cautious. Parcels might go missing, but that is always a risk, and people understand that when they make AND when they grant requests. I think its something we all just agree on but I totally relate to the anxiety!

    • Dina C. says:

      Love the flags, Patty! They’re so cute and helpful. Last month, Ella from Sweden and I exchanged packages, and it was a very satisfying and happy swap. It delights me to know that I’m meeting perfumistas from all over the globe.

    • I just noticed the flags a little bit ago.. That’s a great idea!

    • hajusuuri says:

      Flags = Brilliant!

    • rosarita313 says:

      Love the flags, although I am not good about shipping outside the US – I’m so sorry, but in my years of swapping I have had packages sent to the UK, Spain and Switzerland all lost….not cheap and very disappointing. My apologies to the wonderful Posse-ites around the world. On a lighter note, Jan L., your Fairy Godmother skills are beyond compare, you have great ideas and now I have to look for a silverware chest. Is there no end to your wonderful perfume abilities? 😉 Thanks to all, esp Patty, who make this monthly event so much fun.

  • rosarita313 says:

    Hi, y’all – Every month I think I don’t have anything to beg for and every month there is something else. I am seeking samples of Elie Saab, Marni or Montale Amandes Orientales; the catch is that I’m looking for samples that can be sprayed. I’d be happy to swap for any of these if my godmother is in the US, I’ve got some good stuff I can share 🙂 Thanks!

  • Mary says:

    I am in a state and hope someone can help me, tho I realize the chances are slim. I’ve fallen in love with Iris Ganache and can’t afford the $400 asking prices on eBay. I would love any quantity of it from anyone who takes pity on me.

    In the meantime, I have a nearly full bottle of Après l’Ondee EDT that I’m willing to share. I hate to admit it, but I just don’t like it! Heresy.

  • susan says:

    I’m looking for samples of any one of the following:

    Via del Profomo Tawaf
    L’Artisan Parfumeur Caligna
    L’Artisan Parfumeur Ananas Fizz
    Guerlain Lys Soleia

    Now to go see what wishes I can grant!! 🙂 🙂

  • fleurdelys says:

    Wheee, I love the Perfume Fairy! This month I wish for a sample of Chanel No. 19, which I hear about so much but have never tried. If one of Esperanza’s helpers can fulfill my wish, please email me at patricialschneider at yahoo dot com.

    • NeenaJ says:

      I can help you with a sample of Chanel 19, fleurdelys. Are you in the US? Emailing you now.

    • Dina C. says:

      Dear Fleaurdelys,
      The edt and edp of No. 19 are two different scents, at least in my opinion and the opinion of some others. The edt is a brighter, sharper chypre with a bit of leather, and the edp is a more rounded floral with rose of May. Both are great. I can send you whatever version Neenaj doesn’t send. Email me at dina church at verizon dawt net (remove spaces and properly spelled).

      • NeenaJ says:

        I’m sending Fleurdelys a few drops (literally – as the spray sample has somewhat evaporated) of the EDT concentration. Thanks for lending a hand Dina! Perfume Fairies rock.

  • Patty Pong says:

    Dear perfume fairy!!!!

    I wish for any ONE of the following to experience:

    Straight to Heaven, Sel Marin, Bluff or Aresene Voyou.

      I’ve got an extra sample of Straight to Heaven. My yahoo address is the same as my screen name

  • Clea says:

    Hi perfume fairy godmother! I’m very interested in trying Le Labo Oud 27 (or really any ouds, I’m obsessed with them at the moment) and any of Neela Vermeire scents.

    I have a sample of Guerlain Samsara EDP (modern version I think) and Sonoma Scent Studio’s Winter Woods that could both go to a new home. I’m in the U.S.!

  • springpansy says:

    Hello again, Perume fairy godmother!

    I am back asking again as it seems there are constant desires to try new things! I would love to sample L’Artisan Nuit de Tubereuse or By Kilian Good Girl Gone Bad. I’m in the U.S. and would love to reciprocate with samples from my collection.

    Thanks,
    Debby msrd at comcast dawt net (no spaces and dawt = . of course.)

    • Beth says:

      Hi Debby! I’m so excited since this is the first I’ve seen in months that I can help with! I have a In the Garden of Good and Evil trio with Good Girl Gone Bad in it. I’d be happy to send it 🙂

    • Heather F says:

      Hi Debby-I have a .75ml sample of Nuit de Tubereuse I’d be happy to send–sending you an email now 🙂

  • Connie says:

    Dear Perfume Fairy Godmother,
    I would be most grateful to try Rossy de Palma by Etat Libre d’Orange. I am in the US.

    Happy June Fairy Godmother!

    I would love to get my hands on a sample of either Conaffetto or Orgasmo by Hilde Soliani. (USA)

    Dear Perfume Fairy Godmother, I would really REALLY love to try some vintage Caron Alpona, but that one may be difficult…

      Hi Paul–I have a sample of “slightly vintage” Alpona extrait–I’m guessing that means it’s from right before it was discontinued, which would probably mean it’s way less vintage than you’re looking for. However, it’s yours if you want it. My email is heather.elizabeth.freeman at gmail 🙂

  • Dina C. says:

    Dear Perfume Fairy Godmother,
    I’ve just figured out this week that I love heliotrope. I already have LouLou, Kenzo Amour and a smidge of Apres L’Ondee, but would love to try anything else with heliotrope in it. I’m on the east coast of the USA. Happy to share my treasures in return! Thanks.

    • Michelle says:

      Hi Dina,

      I have about a dozen frags listed on the fragrantica heliotrope page that I can send you samples of. I’m bookhouseshell on MUA and basenotes & at yahoo. Thanks!

    • Jan Last says:

      Dina, I have a few which list heliotrope as a note, and would be happy to share. I am jdeangeo at aol dot com

    • Mary says:

      Dina, I’d be happy to send you a generous sample of the l’Ondee.

      • Dina C. says:

        Thanks Mary! I’m at dina church aaat veri2on dawt net (spelled correctly with no spaces). Drop me a line, and I’ll give you my address. 😀

  • Merlin says:

    Hi everyone! I’m exploring leather at the moment and would love to try Knize Ten, Cuir de Lancolm and Boxeuses. I live in South Africa and hope to find something I can reciprocate with!

    • Merlin says:

      and, eek, sorry to be so greedy, but I would really like to try Chanel’s Egoiste as well (blush!)

      • Jackie b says:

        Hello again Merlin!
        I can send on some leather, have Knize Ten and the Lancome,
        Jdotbirch at ecudot edudot au.

        PS don’t tell my husband that I am sharing his Knize!!!!

  • lucasai says:

    Dearest Esperanza!
    First of all I would like to thank you for granting my perfume wish in May and for letting me help you with granting wishes of other perfume lovers.

    This month I’m dreaming about a sample of Aedes de Venustas Iris Nazarena or a tiny bit of new Van Cleef & Arpels Collection Extraordinaire perfume named Rose Velours.

    I’m in the EU, happy to swap and grant other wishes!

  • Elia says:

    Dear Fairies,

    I’d love to try any of the Chanel Exlusifs apart from Cuir de Russie which I have already been generously introduced to.
    I’m in the EU.

    thanks

    • Merlin says:

      Hi Elia, I have some of no 18 and some of Gardenia. Email me at merlynn dot edelstein at gmail dot com and I would be glad to pass them on.

      • Merlin says:

        But unfortunately my sample of 31 Rue Cambon – which is by far the best – is long gone… Does anyone have a sample of this to send Elia’s way?

    • merettah says:

      Hi Elia, I can send you No.22, 1932 and also 31 Rue Cambon. Just email me at [email protected], and I will send them to you 🙂

  • Emily S says:

    First I’d like to send a big thank-you to the wonderful Hajusuuri for fulfilling my wish last month- thank you Hajusuuri!! I’m making good use of Carnal Flower and fell hard for Sous le toit de Paris too (I love the neroli and violet leaf combo- so gorgeous).

    I’m not going to make any wishes this month because I’ve already received so much kindness, but I do have a couple things to give away to anyone in the US who’d like to try them:

    By Kilian Forbidden Forbidden Games ~2 ml
    Chanel Coco edp ~2.5-3 ml
    Panier des Sens Vervenie Citronee ~a little more than 2 ml

    Cheers!

    • Lynne Marie says:

      Hi Emily,

      I live in the us and would love to try the Vervenie Citron. My email is clevelandvitz1 at gmail dawt com. Thanks so much!

    • Clea says:

      Hi Emily,

      I would be very interested in either the Chanel Coco or the Forbidden Games, whichever you’d prefer to part with. My email is clea.major at gmail dawt com. Thank you!

    • hajusuuri says:

      Blushing..thank you for the shout out, Emily S! I’m glad you are enjoying the Carnal Flower and I am tickled pink that you like Atelier Sous le toit de Paris! And you are one talented jewelry artist..so thank YOU.

  • thegoddessrena says:

    I’d like to try some natural perfumes–Aftelier Honey Blossom, Sonoma Scent Studio Cocoa Sandalwood, Ayal Moriel Incarnation, Providence Perfume Company osmanthus Oolong or honore des pre Vamp a New York. I would be happy with any of these or any other interesting natural perfume

    • susan says:

      I believe I’ve got some unwanted Vamp a New York – I’ll check when I get home. Shoot me an email at somerss at gmail dot com to discuss.

    • I’ve got a sample of Cocoa Sandalwood I’d be happy to send you. You can email me at countsjc at gmail dot com. I think I used up my Honey Blossom sample, but if I still have any left I’ll throw that in too.

  • shaney says:

    Dear Perfume Fairy Godmother, I am trying desperately not to blind buy SL Bois de Violette. Could you please relieve me from the pressure by offering a sample? I would love to give a sample in return, and I have many to give out! xoxoxoxo

  • merettah says:

    Dear Perfume Godmother!
    I hope I can grant some wishes this month, too. For myself I would like to try either Il Profumo Patchouli Noir or Chanel Coromandel. thanks 🙂

    • dinazad says:

      Hi! I can send you a sample of Coromandel – e-mail me at convallia-at-yahoo-dot-com!

  • Mariekel says:

    Hello perfume sprites,

    I am torn between begging for Olivier Durbano Heliotriope or Providence Perfume’s Moss Gown. Would be terribly grateful to try either! thanks, kids!
