October Perfume Sample Fairy Godmother

Esperanza the Perfume Fairy Godmother

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

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

For those of you new or that need a reminder of how this works – in comments you can list one or two things 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 sometimes play Perfume Posse Fairy Godmother and go through the list 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)

Neat! Thanks Carolyn, that's super!

CarolynC November 1, 2013

Hi Victoria. I'm betting that most people are waiting for November fairy godmother posting so aren't checking for late posts here. Happy to send you samples you'd like. Please send your address to me at bogsc at aol dawt com.

CarolynC October 27, 2013

Getting in my reverse perfume fairy godmother offerings just before November. Tend to crave spice/tea this time of year so pulling these from shelf and dusting them off to wear/share: Coco by Chanel - Small decant Magazine Street by Strange Invisible Perfumes - Small decant Malabah by Penhaligon - Small decant Russian Caravan Tea - Small decant Weil de Weil - Small sample of vintage EDP. My understanding is that the Weil's were furriers who were trying to recreate the scent/feel of fur in perfume form. I think they did an outstanding job on this one. Given that work is crazy busy right now, due to time constraints shipping to US only for the moment.

The slow fairy will be shipping Monday!! Despite flooding, a new furnace and massive dirt moving, the fumes will get through!!

VictoriaRose October 16, 2013

This site is fantastic. I'm receiving some great samples and right around my birthday! cheers, V.

Hola, hello and what an incredible place this is. I spent two hours in bed this morning glued to reading about Rose perfumes and zipping around the web looking at prices. Fairy Godmother might HATE me for admitting I have been addicted to Tea Rose for many many years. I took trips with Paris (yuk) and some Penhaligon & I do like Jo Malone. What I'm looking for is a rose to seduce me and make me feel like the world is wonderful.... but one I can afford. I would appreciate any samples or a bigger amount if possible. I am a knitwear designer and could offer a beautiful hat or scarf or something later on. And, I recently went through a most amazing experience that put me out of my home for 2 months so I would be very appreciative. I LOVE ROSES. Do not like vanilla as my mum wore it when she was passing on. Love India, Spain, Mexico, weirdness. cfn, V. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5ElLSBx9Jo8&list=RD029HB406iGofo (enjoy)

hajusuuri October 12, 2013

Dear PFG, I would love to get a sample of either Penhaligon Iris Prima or Escentric Molecules 02 (I already have 01 and 03). Please email me (click on my name) or leave a reply here and I will email you.Thanks.

Devon H October 11, 2013

Dearest Fairy Godmother, I would love to try a sample or decant of A Lab on Fire's What We Do In Paris Is Secret, PdN's Temps d'Une Fete, or NVC Ashoka. I have been a good fairy to others! :-) and will reverse fairy.

Michelle October 10, 2013

Dear Perfume Fairy. My wish is a sample of Michelle by Balenciaga. I have always wanted to try this perfume. Also if anyone knows where you can buy this perfume in stores or other than ebay/amazon, that will be great.

Edpgypsy October 9, 2013

Hi! I would like to try Lipstick Rose and White Aoud. Emailing you :)

Lej October 9, 2013

Hello to the Posse. This is my first time to join the discussion. I'm fairly new to fragrence exploration & collecting but I have several samples that have not won my heart so I'd like to send them out to anyone interested in trying them. I have 1ml of Keiko Mecheri's Loukhoum, 2mls of Kenzo Jungle Elephant, 2.5 mls of Jaipur by Boucheron, 2 mls of ELDO's Afternoon of a Faun, 3mls Atelier Cologne Oolong Infini, 1 ml of Lipstick Rose by F. Malle, 1 ml White Aoud by Montale & 4mls each of Tuscan Leather & Azure Lime by Tom Ford. Oh and about a 1 ml of Houbigants Quelques Fleur Royale. Most of these are sprays w/the exception the Loukhoum, Lipstick Rose, both Tom Fords & the Montale. You can contact me at lejmoorman at gee male dawt kom. And uh just FYI I'm not the most computer savvy person so I'm never quite sure if I'm doing things the best way. Oh and I'm located in Texas.

And as the seasons come and go, here's something you might like to know. There are fairies everywhere: under bushes, in the air, playing games just like you play, singing through their busy day. So listen, touch, and look around - in the air and on the ground. And if you watch all nature's things, you might just see a fairy's wing. ~ Author unknown

CarolynC October 5, 2013

Dear PFG, I'd love to try some Gardez-Moi by Jovoy. Will post some reverse fairy godmother offerings shortly.

Edward October 5, 2013

Jan Last October 5, 2013

Late to the party again, lol. Happy October! I don't have time to read all the posts so far, but as per usual, I am after your odd, strange and sometimes unloveables and would love to try more By Kilians. I'll start mailing the Salamanca from last month, and will read the up and down posts. I have lots to send you.

Joaquim October 5, 2013

Dear perfume fairy godmother, I recently discovered three lines: Profumum Roma, Magnetic Scent and Bruno Fazzolari but I'm interested in just one perfume of each line: Fumidus, Indigo and Lampblack, a few drops of some of this juices would be awesome, and maybe I have something to offer in return! Thank you in advance I'm in the EU and you can contact me at: joaquinsune at yahoo dot com

patriciaC October 5, 2013

Fabio October 5, 2013

Hi all.. I would like very much to sample anything by Andy Tauer..I would order samples from his web-site but sadly he is unable to ship to Italia.. I would be happy to try anything by him but, especially Marocain, Orange Star, or one of his ROSES ALso, would like to try something by Parfums DEmpire, for they have sold out of their sample set on-line I am contact-able at [email protected], I have samples to offer in return Many thanks!

Heather F October 5, 2013

Thanks in advance!!

Beck October 4, 2013

Dear Godmothers, I would love to get my nose on a small decant of Ambre Russe by Parfum d'Empire, Cardinal by Heeley, Costes or Costes 2. I will reciprocate the favour with a small but fine collection of samples. Thank you, Beck

ameliacjohnson October 4, 2013

Hello! I have lots of samples and continue to scan for things I can offer others! In the meantime, I am looking for any of the DSH Holiday series (esp. Winter White or Lumiere) or SSS (Winter Woods, Cocoa Sandalwood, or Forest Walk). I guess I'm feeling seasonal!

leathermountain October 4, 2013

Greetings, FGP's! I'm super busy this month, so I'm hoping that only a couple of people will go ahead and claim all my reverse offerings, all of which are samples. Some are smidges, largest is 2 or 3 mL, in rough size order: -Pamplelune (Guerlain Aqua Allegoria) -Soir de Lune (Sisley) -Kelly Caleche (Hermes) -Chergui (Lutens) -Carnation / Clavel (Alvarez Gomez Agua de Tocador) -Vendetta (Valentino) -Little Stars (Olympic Orchids) -La Haie Fleurie (L'Artisan) And, Fairy Godparent, please, would you grant me a perfume named Lilla? Lilla szívét kértem; s megadá a...?

Jamie October 4, 2013

Dear Fairy Godmother, I am looking for a decant of Van Cleef & Arpels Bois d'Iris. If that's too tricky, I would love to try something from Frederic Malle (L'eau de Hiver, Musc Ravageur, Iris Poudre...) Thank you!

edpgypsy October 4, 2013

Dear Fairygodparents, I am in search of smelling a tiny bit of either Tom Ford- Black Orchid Voile de Fleur or Narciso Rodriguez- Essence. I think either would be a nice transition into fall scent. Hoping I am worthy... :) Gmail address is my username above.

edpgypsy October 4, 2013

Hi there, this is my first time participating on the Perfume Fairy Godmother thread. I would like to start with a reverse post to offer a few samples I would like to share if anyone wants them. I know they are pretty common and a lot of you are familiar with them but maybe someone out there who is maybe new like me would like to give one or all a home. I have a carded sample of Dior- Miss Cherie and also Givenchy- Ange ou Demon. I also have a small decant of Dior- Addict. I am fairly new to perfumes, so hopefully I will have more to offer in the future. My Gmail address is my username.

Nadja Sand October 4, 2013

Hi everyone! My long shot wish from last time, Nuit Noire by Mona di Orio, still stands. (But thank you to leathermountain for sending a sample of Salamanca my way, post is proving slow but I'm sure it'll get here!) Really, I'd love to get my hands on any odd/dark/fierce tuberose. Specifically things like HdP Tubereuse 3 Animale, Tableau de Parfums Loretta, Tubereuse Criminelle, Soivohle Tobacco & Tulle or Aftelier Cepes and Tuberose. Any one of these would make my day! I have some niche samples and a lot of indie oil samples that I can offer in return!

Edward October 4, 2013

I have been trying to find male perfumes that contain rose, and hugo boss's Motion and White Motion. I think they fit the colder weather. I have to use my scarf now and I like it!

Nemo October 4, 2013

Hi everyone, I have a set of 8 samples from Possets perfumes. I would like to send them all to one person if possible. If you are interested, the specific samples are: Adamus, The Field of Reeds, The Girls Love Chai Chai Chai, The Arc of Venus, Fearful Symmetry, Indigo and Stewart. I hope someone will give them a good home!

Elia October 4, 2013

Dear Fairies, I feel like trying something all natural. I've been feeling a bigger and bigger pull towards Strange Invisible Perfumes lately, and I'd love an introduction. I've never tried any, so my wish could be covered by any one of them. ty

LaurenW October 4, 2013

good morning, Fragrance Godmother. I would love a sample of Slumberhouse Norne. I have been a very good sharer.

thegoddessrena October 4, 2013

I am looking to revisit some things that I no longer have samples of, specifically Ta'if, Mythique and Safran Troublant

Connie October 4, 2013

I'm wishing upon the perfume star for anything by Pierre Guillaume (from Parfumerie Generale, Phaedon, Huitieme Art). So far I've tried DjHenne and Aomassai. And would love the chance to sample any of the others. Looking forward to granting some wishes, may post some reverse swaps later on.

thegoddessrena October 4, 2013

I have the Le Labo for you. My yahoo address and screen name are the same

Holly F. October 4, 2013

Hi all! I'm so excited that it is October and the Perfume Fairy Godmother is here to grant all of our wishes. I'm desperately looking for some Amouage Memoir Woman, if a bit can be spared. If a larger amount is available, I would give generously from my own collection in exchange for it. Fingers crossed, here's hoping! I would love to grant some other wishes, too. Xoxo

Jackie b October 4, 2013

Hello PFGM! I have been reading various reviews of Hermessence fragrances but have never sampled any. Would love to try any of them, please grant my wish this month...I have been very good. Ish.

lucasai October 4, 2013

Dearest Esperanza! I didn't find a lucky star last month... I'm hoping to have more luck in October. Please hear my wish and grant me a sample of Histoires de Parfums 1899 Hemingway or Van Cleef & Arpels Rose Velours. If neither of these work - Phaedon Tabac Rouge or any other sweeter tobacco perfume will make me happy.

patty P. October 4, 2013

Finally !!!! Dear Esperanza. Can you find some Iris Nazarena by Aedes de Venustas? :)

springpansy October 4, 2013

Yay - it's Esperanza! Hi all - I'm looking for a sample of Le Labo Labdanum 18 and/or a sample of A Lab on Fire LiquidNight. I live in Colorado in the U.S. I'm always happy to send something fun in return and will see what I can find from my stash for other fairy godmother requests. Thanks!
