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 June 14, 2013

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 June 11, 2013

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 June 10, 2013

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 June 10, 2013

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 June 9, 2013

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 June 9, 2013

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

Jan Last June 8, 2013

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

Carolyn C June 8, 2013

Time for some reverse fairy godmother offerings to repay past kindnesses: Tom Ford Neroli Portofino - Just a smidge left in manufacturer sample Sarah Jessica Parker's Lovely - About 4ml decant Penhaligon's Eau de Cologne - 1.5ml sample Kenzo Winter Flowers - 3ml vial Yves Saint Laurent Parisienne EDP - 1/2ml sample MAC MV2 - 1/2ml sample Pink Sugar - 2ml sample Balenciaga Le Dix - 1ml sample Ginestet Botrytis - 2ml decant CBIHP M#3 November - 3ml decant Tom Ford Noir EDP - 1.5ml sample

Shirley June 8, 2013

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 June 8, 2013

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 June 7, 2013

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

Beth June 7, 2013

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.

Jamie June 7, 2013

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

Elly June 7, 2013

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!

fleamarketjunkie June 6, 2013

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.

dinazad June 6, 2013

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 June 6, 2013

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 June 6, 2013

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 June 5, 2013

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

ojaddicte June 5, 2013

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 June 5, 2013

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.

Katrin June 5, 2013

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

rosefan June 5, 2013

Dear Fairy Godmother, A drop of Mona di Orio's Oud, Vanille or Cuir would absolutely make my day. Thank you to all.

RuthF June 5, 2013

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

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 jchoppes[at]hotmail[dot]com

Amy K June 5, 2013

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 June 4, 2013

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.

Cheryl G. June 4, 2013

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!

Beck June 4, 2013

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 June 4, 2013

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.

Jamie June 4, 2013

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!

sasha June 4, 2013

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 June 4, 2013

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!).

Jennifer Counts June 4, 2013

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 June 4, 2013

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.

Merlin June 4, 2013

A total of 5 non-Americans...

Patty June 4, 2013

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!

rosarita313 June 4, 2013

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 June 4, 2013

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 June 4, 2013

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 June 4, 2013

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.

Patty Pong June 4, 2013

Dear perfume fairy!!!! I wish for any ONE of the following to experience: Straight to Heaven, Sel Marin, Bluff or Aresene Voyou. =0)

Clea June 4, 2013

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 June 4, 2013

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.)

Connie June 4, 2013

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)

Jan Last June 4, 2013

Paul McDonough June 4, 2013

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

Dina C. June 4, 2013

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.

Merlin June 4, 2013

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!

lucasai June 4, 2013

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 June 4, 2013

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

Emily S June 4, 2013

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!

thegoddessrena June 4, 2013

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

shaney June 4, 2013

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 June 4, 2013

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 :-)

Mariekel June 4, 2013

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!
