July Perfume Sample Fairy Godmother

Esperanza the Perfume Fairy Godmother

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

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

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.

    Hello! Just emailed you. So excited! =)

  • Civet says:

  • FeralJasmine says:

    Hi all, I have gotten interested in/obsessed with a Penhaligon fragrance called Lily and Spice. None of the sample and decant places that I’ve checked have it. If anyone has it and could spare a bit, I’d be most appreciative. I am wooddogs3 awt gmail dawtcawm.

  • Jan Last says:

    So, today is National Nude Day, or so Facebook told me, so you can spray every inch of yourself! I will not be participating….don’t want to cause nausea in the general population, lol.

  • Connie says:

    Very late this month, so I’ll keep it general. I’m interested in trying something from SSS- I have tried Champagne de Bois (too rubbery) and Incense Pure (fantastic). My email is connie at ginkwunk dot net.

  • Civet says:

    I’m a little late to the party this month, but I would love to try Agent Provocateur L’Agent or Atelier Sous le Toit de Paris. I will post some reverse fairy godmother goodies within the next day or so!

  • Jan Last says:

    And here we go again. I sent a thank you for a package to the wrong person, so, for the person who sent it, here is your thank you:
    Thanks a bunch! The Guerlain is wonderful. I thought I would hate the Bobbi Brown, but it’s a really good suntan lotion smell. The Mimosa is a simple, well made fragrance, very nice. As a ginger freak, the Ginger Essence is right up my alley, lol. My granddaughter Jenna begged me for the Delicious, she loves it. All in all, it was a big hit, and I thank you,

    We had terrible flooding yesterday here in Colorado, so today is clean up day for me, good thing I already said I’d be a slow fairy. More than 2 1/2 inches of rain in an hour, so my basement had water to my ankles. Patty, hope you were on high ground.

  • patriciaC says:

    Hello to all, i know i’m new here but would love to swap or share. I have been looking for nearly 2 years now for roger and gallet almond blossom. I had a small soap given to me once a long time ago and i loved it. Has anyone seen it lately?

    • Jan Last says:

      patricaC – Just stumbled across 1 soap in almond blossom on EBay, 17.50.

      • patriciaC says:

        Oh my gosh Jan too much for a small soap for me. But thanks so much for looking i will go admire it from afar!

  • pixelslave says:

    I am looking for a sample of Ebullience. I have nearly 400 samples to choose from in trade. Anyone interested? email cfinkelman at gmail

    • Jan Last says:

      Sold at Neiman Marcus late 1970’s, early 1980’s from Ebullience perfumes, small company, two nice guys outside of Philly. Had a great dusting powder with a giant ostrich puff. They also had a men’s scent named Hot Chocolate which came in a tin like Hershey’s powder.
      I found Ebullience Perfume Company listed at 125 South Street, Philadelphia, PA 19147

  • Andrea says:

    I have newly learned of Vero Profumo and Grossmith and would be grateful for an introduction to these lines should anyone happen to have some drops to share. Mito & Hasu No Hana, in particular sound so beautiful.

    • Connie says:

      Hi Andrea, I have a spray sample of Vero Profumo’s Kiki, if you’re interested- my email is connie at ginkwunk dot net.

      • Andrea says:

        Hi Connie, yes would love to try that. Thanks! I will check email. And yes, the Eau de Patchouli is yours!

  • mridula says:

    Dear Fairy Godmother,

    I’m interested in anything with a predominantly sandalwood note. I have tried and shared here Bois des Iles edt. I also have Tam Dao. I would love a bit ofSL’s Santal de Mysore or Santal Blanc, Corso Como, Le LaboSantal 33, TF Santal Blush or Guerlain’s Samsara.

  • Ines says:

    Dear Fairy Godmother, if anyone has a drop of JAR’s Bolt of Lightning I would give it a very loving home. 🙂

  • I’m not asking for anything this month, just helping Esperanza out with the fairying. I have some samples I will happily send to good homes in the US:

    Shalimar (I have 4 sample vials)
    Prada L’Eau Ambree
    Lush Superworldunknown
    Lush Cocktail
    Lush Love
    Lush Icon
    Lush 1000 Kisses
    Estee Lauder Knowing
    Juliette Has a Gun Not a Perfume
    Frederic Malle Le Parfum de Therese
    Givenchy Organza
    Montale Aoud Ambre
    Valentino Valentina
    Thierry Mugler Angel
    Annick Goutal Petit Cherie

    Anyone who’s interested can email me at countsjc at gee mail dot com.

    • Ok, the Shalimar samples, all the Lushes, JHAG, Le Parfum de Therese, Montale, and Annick Goutal are all taken. That leaves:

      Prada L’Eau Ambree
      Estee Lauder Knowing
      Givenchy Organza
      Valentino Valentina
      Thierry Mugler Angel

    • Jill says:

      Hi there! I would love to try the Shalimar. Would anyone have a sample of Bandit? I would give anything to try Ebullience! Thank you in advance Perfume Fairy Godmother!!!!!

  • Holly F. says:

    If anyone could grant my lil’ wish, I’d like to try Agent Provocateur L’Agent and/or Annick Goutal Mon Parfum Cheri Par Camille. Let me know if you’re looking for anything, maybe we can swap samples or decants. Thanks!

    • Irina says:

      Hi, Holly
      I can send you some AG the EDT, please, contact me at irreiter (at)hotmail(dawt)coom

  • Mary P. says:

    I guess no one has any Monyette to spare, so I will switch it out and cross my fingers :))) How about VC&A’s Orchidee Vanille?

  • Mary P. says:

    I still have some Shari by Cara Nome – would that qualify as a stripper scent (a long shot, eh?) Here’s a bit about it lifted from my pinterest board: “Shari by Cara Nome, a discontinued fragrance that was first launched in 1927??? From The Vintage Perfume Vault: The Continuing Story of Cara Nome Perfume – about the only information I could find on the vintage fragrance…. but the scent is really nice – a spicy Oriental Vanilla as close as I can guess. Sort of reminiscent of Blue Waltz but lighter, more powdery.”

    • Jan Last says:

      Mary Pat, since you are thowing things my way, and thank you for that, I’ll take that poor, homeless, different scent, lol.

      • Mary P. says:

        Oh Jan, you truly are the perfumista’s version of Mother Theresa, poor little Shari :)) I’ll tuck it in with the others and thank you!

    • Jan Last says:

      Mary P, this was an eye opener! I honestly believe the Cara Shari was what my Grandmother wore for years. I remember going with her to shop, we had to get all dressed up and behave with our restaurant manners. The ladies at the cosmetic counters looked so glamorous to me, thanks for a terrific memory.

  • fleurdelys says:

    Hello, dear generous Esperanza, this month my wish is for Chanel Coco EDP. If you can fulfill it, my email is patricialschneider at yahoo dot com. Thanks!

  • Irina says:

    dear fairies,
    I would love a small decant of Guerlain’s ” Bois d’Armenie”, please

  • katrin says:

    I wanted to revisit Knowing but the local department store is not carrying it any longer. Has it been discontinued?

    • Hi Katrin,

      I don’t know about Estonia, but it’s still available here in the U.S. I have a sample that I could send you if you’re interested. Email me at countsjc at gmail dot com.

  • Amy K says:

    Okay, samples are spoken for!

  • Lia says:

    Would love to try a Mona Di Orio sample…! Thanks for the opportunity.

    • Ann says:

      Hi, Lia! I can help you with that! E-mail me at perfume (no space) annie at symbol gmail dawt cawm

  • Amy K says:

    Someone granted my wish a few months ago, so I’d like to be the fairy this month. I have a random bag of samples, mostly niche fragrances from LS with a few BPAL imps thrown in, that I’d be happy to send off to the first US person who emails me at alligator dot elevator at gmail. Have a great month!

    • leathermountain says:

      I’ve gotten my share and then some already, so I’m not asking for your grab-bag. But I’d like to say that I envy you your awesome email address, and what a fun way to offer up your stuff! Curious: What’s LS? BPAL imps?

    • Amy K says:

      Hopefully I manage to reply to my post in the right place this time:) The samples are now spoken for.

  • Jan Last says:

    Very slow fairy here, just finished sending June! I would love to explore more Tom Ford and as always, am looking for those little, off the beaten path, kinda weird samples. jdeangeo at owl dot com.

    • leathermountain says:

      Kinda weird, you say? What do you think of Coal (Andrea Maack)?

      • Jan Last says:

        But of course!! That and the Quince and moss should fit the bill nicely, lol. Plus, Heather’s Acca Kappa sounds like a hairball!

      • Jan Last says:

        Funny thing is, several of the unwanted and unloved (and weird) which have come my way have actually become FB realities. Just got some Dita Von Teese (stripper perfume, anyone?)

        • Mary P. says:

          Hey Jan, I’ve got a different one for you – Queen of Punk from Esscenctual Alchemy – wanna try it?

        • leathermountain says:

          How come nobody ever mentions that category? Cyprus sounds lovely, or whatever, but can we please have an article about the various incarnations of Stripper Perfume?

          • CarolynC says:

            Oooooh…stripper perfume! Sounds like something that’s right up my alley. +1 for suggestion on article about “stripper perfumes.” 🙂

          • Jan Last says:

            I’m ready for the stripper perfume column! Getting my list and shining the stripper pole!

    • CarolynC says:

      Hey Jan. If you are a serious leather fan I have some Tom Ford Tuscan Leather. Warning: 1 spray and you’ll be smelling it 24 hours later. Fortunately it’s a terrific one. E-mail me bogsc at aol dawt com if you are interested.

      • Jan Last says:

        Are kidding? I’m not serious about anything, lol. But I’d love to try it!

      • Jan Last says:

        This stuff is amazing! I must have smelled a sample earlier in my journey, but then I called it a no. Now it has become a yes and no.
        It still seems to remind me of a soft leather glove, drying over a sweet wood fire. Then I resmell my arm and get a black tea from somewhere. So, this one gets saved for the first chilly day. Hooray for those little oddities you all send me, and Carolyn, this reminds me of how far I’ve fallen into the rabbit hole, lol.

  • Ann says:

    Hello, all you lovely perfume fairy godmothers! I am dying to find a sample of Estee Lauder’s Private Collection Tuberose Gardenia body cream. The few counters that I’ve seen that carry it, never have a tester out to try it.

    Or if that’s too hard to find, does anyone by chance have a large-ish sample or small spray of The Different Company’s de Bachmakov that they don’t mind parting with? I had a teeny bit in a vial to try but really need more juice to test thoroughly. Thanks so much!!

    • Sharon C. says:

      Hi Ann! I don’t have the body cream, but I do have the lotion. Would be glad to send some your way if you would like. Pls reach me at snchamness at msn dot com.

  • thegoddessrena says:

  • Patty Pong says:

    (I thought this July day would never come). =|

    • rosarita313 says:

      Hi, Patty – I have a sample of Falling into the Sea that I can pass along to you. My email is opponatrix at gmail.

  • Lynne Marie says:

    I have several decants to offer for wish granting to perfumistas in the US:

    Tea for Two – L’Artisan
    Alahine – Teo Cabanel
    Carnation – Mona di Orio

    I am wishing for a decant of By Kilian’s Back to Black or A Taste of Heaven

    My addy is clevelandvitz1 at gmail dot com

  • RuthF says:

    Hi All,

    I’d love to try Zelda by Envoyage perfumes, and I’d be very happy to swap. My email is ruthfarrelly at gmail dawt com

  • Galatea8 says:

    I would like to try:

    Destiny by House of Matriarch

    Thank you!

  • Beck says:

    Hello to you all,

    I am desperately seeking Cuir Velours by Naomi Goodsir. I would also love to try anything (masculine or feminine) by Xerjoff. It remains an elusive and unobtainable house in my country.


  • Elia says:

    Dear Fairies,

    My wish this month is for an introduction to Arquiste, with Anima Dulcis and Aleksandr sounding the most interesting.

  • Yulina says:

    I’m wondering if I can try some samples, specifically A La Nuit by Serge Lutens, but I would also love to try other Lutens. I love the house! I’m also interested in trying Bond No. 9 and L’Artisan Parfumeur. Andy Warhol Success is A New Job in New York and Ananas Fizz/ Havana Vanille got my attention. My email is ribka underscore vaniarusli at yahoo dot co dot id.

  • Undina says:

    Dear Perfume Fairy Godmother, I used up my 1 ml dab sample and can’t make up my mind, so I’m looking for La Fille de Berlin in spray sample (1.5-2 ml) – or would love to swap for a bigger sized decant.

    • lucasai says:

      Sweetie, you can have my carded spray sample if you want it. I sprayed it once or twice so there’s still almost 1ml of juice to use.

      • Undina says:

        Thank you, dear. You’re too far to be sending this lonely ml 🙂 Let’s see if I can swap with somebody in the U.S. If no, it will be cheaper for me to buy a sample here than for you to send it. But thank you!

  • Andrea says:

    Hi. I was checking in to see when the next SwapMania might be and found this. Yay. If any perfume fairies might be able to grant any amount of the following, I would be over the moon:

    *Roja Dove, Diaghilev
    *Ayala Moriel, Etrog
    *Any of the Puredistances or Parfums MDCI

    I can also offer reverse fairy wishes a sample I have of (in U.S.A.):
    Reminiscence, Eau de Patchouli (spray sample mostly full)
    Miller Harris, Coeur d’Ete (vial is 1/2 full)
    Parfumerie Generale, Ether de Lilas (the vial from LuckyScent it is a little more than 1/2 full)

    I am at: palisan33 (at) y a h o o * c o m

    THX! Andrea

  • Mary P. says:

    Okay, let me try this again – my posts keep tacking onto the wrong thread, so here goes….

    Hi Perfume Fairy Godmothers! I do have a deepest desire this month. I am wondering if anyone has a lonesome decant or so of Monyette Paris that they would like to find a good home for??? My DH has fallen in love with this one on me (I love it too ). Thanks so much!

  • leathermountain says:

    Greetings Fairy Godparents and Children. I have been looking forward to this post ever since I finished sending off last month’s packages. So much fun!

    I wish for something along the lines of Sonoma Scent Studio Tabac Aurea.

    I’ve never smelled it, but it has been recommended, and I have a hankering for tobaccos. Also, one of my delightful June Fairy Godmothers put me onto SSS.

    I have a new budget rule that I don’t buy samples until I first sample everything available for free in tester bottles in NYC retail shops — in other words, never.

    Perhaps a Fairy Godparent can provide the loophole that will let me try stuff that doesn’t retail in these parts?

    I will also post ReverseFGM list in the next few days.

    • Heather F says:

      I have some Tabac Aurea I’d be happy to send you, along with some other tabacco-type scents if you like (Kilian’s Back to Black?). My email is heather.elizabeth.freeman at gmail 🙂

  • erica h says:

    hi y’all!

    I can’t seem to find decants of two Hilde Soliani scents that I love:


    if anyone can gift or sell (if that is allowed) either of these I would be in heaven. Thank you! =)

  • sunnlitt says:

    Hi, Everyone,

    I am hoping for a sample of Rouge Bunny Rouge’s scent, Lilt.
    Isn’t that a lovely name for a fragrance?
    Thanks for all your help.

  • Mary P. says:

    I have some reverse fairy godmother offerings this month. I want to thank all the wonderful people who have gifted me in the past few months.

      Hi Rosefan,

    I’d love to try the new AdV Iris Nazarena or I Profumi di Firenze Ambra Grisea. Those may be long shots, though, so I’d be very content with a sample of any Eau d’Italie perfumes. Thanks, as ever!

    • CarolynC says:

      Hey Heather. I have some Eau d’Italie scents around here somewhere. E-mail me at bogsc at aol dawt com while I search to see what I have.

    • Jan Last says:

      Heather, it’s about time I sent you a few new ones, I’ll hunt some down also. jdean at owl dot com

    • Jan Last says:

      So Heather slipped in a little Possets gem, thank you Heather, and you will love the name… Hwah-Teh’s Mouse is giving off amber, tobacco and white musk, maybe? Smells like fall and winter with a good book and wine.

  • Emily S says:

    This month I can offer the following samples to someone in the US who’d like to try one or all:

    Parfums de Nicolai Maharanih Intense- 1 ml
    Etro Sandalo- 1 ml
    Etat Libre d’Orange Jasmin et Cigarette- 1 ml

    Perfume Fairy Godmother, this month I’m wishing hard for a decant Comme des Garcons Avignon.

    I’ll post some reverse-fairy goodies below! Happy July everyone!

    • CarolynC says:

      Hey Emily. I can definitely supply you with a fairly large sample of Avignon if you can’t get a decant elsewhere. Email bogsc at aol dawt com.

      • Emily S says:

        Thanks Carolyn! It’s always exciting to receive a package from you (enjoying my Dzing! as I type this). I still owe you a package– I’ll have that out tomorrow!

    Norma Kamali Incense. ::sigh::

    Dearest Esperanza and Fairy Folk,

    If anyone has fallen out of love with Aldehyde 44 and would like to send a decant, split or FB to a loving and good home, please let me know. This could be a gift, swap or purchase if the price is right (and it’s allowed).

    Thanks to all, and have a scentsational summer!

    • sunnlitt says:

      I have a spray sample (one and a half ml) that you can definitely have, if you want such a small amount.
      Contact me at sunnlittlane at yahoo dot com

      • Rina says:

        Hi Sunnlitt!

        Thanks so much, I have the travel spray and was looking more for a refill for that but I so appreciate you offer! Is there anything you are looking for I can send you?

  • Red says:

    Dear Fairy,

    Any perfumes from houses: Parfum de Nicolai, Montale, Bond no. 9, Maison Francis K., Juliette Has a Gun and Atelier.
    Any unwanted would be happiness to me.. No pressures, not expecting, just hoping and very curious to experience
    how magical their perfumes. Thank you.

  • CarolynC says:

    Yay…my favorite time of the month! A very dear friend is searching for Jovan’s Grass or Civet oil and I’d love to be able to surprise her with a little of either/both. Hoping a PP fairy godmother can sprinkle a little dust out here in NYC and make this wish come true. Will post some reverse fairy godmother offerings later today in order to pay it forward…

    My perfume godfather skills weren’t really helpful last month. Hope it goes better in July.
    Summer has finally arrived in Poland with clear sky and warm temperatures.
    I would love to try any of these perfumes:

    Parfums de Nicolai Eau sOilei
    Slumberhouse Pear&Olive
    April Aromatics Unter den Linden

    I’ll be more than happy if I can return the favor by swapping.
    Good luck everyone, let the perfume magic begin!
