March 2014 Perfume Sample Fairy Godmoter

perfume sample fairy godmother

Esperanza the Perfume Fairy Godmother



Hey, it is time again for the Perfume Sample Fairy Godmother for March.     So here’s how Fairy Godmother works – this post will be open for the entire month of March 2014.   I’ll start a new one at the beginning of April.   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 been the recipient of some kindness, do give back when you can. I know people 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 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)

Samples in search of happy homes are below. I will likely be slow. :) I can send one or two parcels outside the US if I have takers. (That's in addition to Elia, whom I still owe a package from 99 months ago that I haven't forgotten, believe it or not. Elia, feel free to add any of these to the bunch!) Lalique Flora Bella Alien Kiehl's Musk (seems to be an oil) Sweet Redemption Passage d'Enfer

Draft March 15, 2014

Hi there, this is my first time on the fairy sample page. It's like a dream! My friend showed it to me because I'm a huge perfume nerd. I'd be interested in trying fragrances with a dominant orange blossom note. It's my favorite note and I'd love to expand my palate with some more scents, especially niche. My email is carson r aft (at) gee mail dawt com. I live in the USA.

Civet March 15, 2014

Hi, PFGs! I would love to try Tauer Orris or Zeta or anything by A Lab on Fire, since these have been on my To Try list forever.

Poppy March 14, 2014

I'd loveit if anyone has some of the old formula of Tabu by Dana. I have some of the new stuff but it doesn't smell quite right. It was the perfume my mother used to wear I'd I'd like to have some around for old times sake.

Stacey March 14, 2014

I'm pretty sure its just the bottle and the Laduree association, but I am dying to smell Nina Ricci La Tentation and can't find it anywhere. Can anyone help?

NeenaJ March 14, 2014

Fairies, I would love to try anything from the Atelier Cologne line up. Orange Sanguine, Cedrat Enivrant, Veviter Fatal and Mistral Patchouli all sound especially appealing. I'm at jpreciose at gmail dawt com. Thanks!

Patty Pong March 13, 2014

Hi, anyone have any Citrus Paradisi from Czech & Speake? I have paypal if you have 5, 10 or more ml to sell. :)

Janlast March 13, 2014

So excited to be back among you all. The ridiculous drama that was my life is coming to an end, all my stuff is mailed out, I am content. I would like to try some ginger notes, if possible, something that puts a little zing in your step. I am jdeangeo and that's at aol dot com.

Edward March 12, 2014

shuvanidev March 12, 2014

Hello Perfume Fairies! I would love to try Parfum d'Empire Equestrius, or Guerlain Aqua Allegoria Figue Iris, or Keiko Mecheri Iris d'Argent, or Keiko Mecheri Iris Pourpre...... failing any of these, good iris fragrance suggestions very much appreciated :) Thanks so much!

I smelled Zita by Paula Dorf on someone and I've been in love every since!!

Connie March 12, 2014

Hi Perfume Fairies! I would love the chance to try Amandiere by Heeley, Moon Bloom by Hiram Green, Jour Ensoleille by SSS, or Violetta by Penhaligon's. Hope spring is springing in all of your respective locations!

Martha March 12, 2014

Dear Perfume Fairies - I wish for a sample of L' Heure Bleue. I've never smelled it and would love to do so. Thanks so much!

Amber Jobin March 12, 2014

Hi Perfume Friends! I’m currently researching some specific perfume notes and the perfumes that feature them and was wondering if anyone would like to trade samples of my perfumes (Aether Arts Perfume) for some of the fragrances I’m interested in? The notes I’m focusing on are: Metallic, Fur, and Super Animalic (I would also welcome any suggestions for other fragrances that might feature these notes). The perfumes I’d like to find samples of are: any of the Blood Concept line (but especially the first four A, B, O, AB), CB I Hate Perfume—Old Fur Coat, Secretions Magnifiques, Musc kublai Khan, and No. 8 by Brent Leonesio. I would also like to find a sample of Bulgari Black for the weird rubber note. You can convo me on Etsy, (AetherArtsPerfume) and see what I have to offer in exchange in terms of the perfumes I create. I always love to trade with fellow perfume enthusiasts!

foxbins March 12, 2014

Hello fairy godmother-- I would like to try Andy Tauer's PHI Un Rose de Kandahar or some of F. Malle's Portrait of a Lady. Thanks so much!

puhfume March 12, 2014

Hello everyone, I've been wanting to try Parfum de Nicolai's Odalisque and Les Temps d'Une Fete. I want to add a green floral to my stable and these two seem to be very highly rated but not the easiest to find. If anyone could help, that'll be much appreciated. Thank you! I'm in Canada.

edpgypsy March 11, 2014

Hello everyone! This month I would love to try Tauer~ 02 L'air du Desert Marocain as I've heard such great things! Also, if anyone can recommend a wonderful All-Natural Tuberose perfume, that would be wonderful! My email address is my username in the town of gee mail. Thank you and Happy March!

molly l March 11, 2014

Dear fairy Perfume Godmother, I would love a sample or decant of Chanel No. 5. I haven't smelled it in so long and I've been pining for it. My email is mclang zero sixteen at gee mail dot com. Thank you!!

Heather F March 11, 2014

Hi all, I'd love to try Byredo 1996, Amouage Opus VIII, or Hiram Green Moon Bloom this month, if anyone has a smidge to spare. My email is heather.elizabeth.freeman at gmail :) Thanks again.

Hope that made sense, lol, if not, you can just put yours down Fairy Goodnesses.

SallyM March 11, 2014

Greetings dear Godmothers! I'm on a mission to try the entire Serge Lutens line and would in particular like to sniff Chergui and Iris Silver Mist. Thanks in excitement!

Jennifer Counts March 11, 2014

I've been wanting to revisit Apres L'Ondee. I remember having tried it at Neiman Marcus some time ago but the last time I was there I couldn't find any of the classic Guerlains, just the exclusive ones. I might have just overlooked them but was too busy avoiding salespeople to notice.. :P Anyway, Esperanza, I would appreciate it if you or one of your helpers see fit to grant me a sample.

einsof March 11, 2014

Prima Ballerina is gone... wow. that was fast. ;)

Mariekel March 11, 2014

Hey there Perfumistas! I would love to try PG Isparta and Masque Milano Luci et Ombre. I also find myself craving hyacinth, so if anyone has a recommendation for a really good hyacinth soliflore, I would be forever grateful (I have been desperately searching for the best one I've ever come across -- Patricia de Nicolai Jacinthe room spray, which smelled just like the real thing, but it is nowhere to be found).

einsof March 11, 2014

in reverse style, i have to offer: Strange Invisible Perfumes Diamnche Strange Invisible Perfumes Prima Ballerina Providence Perfume CO Citron Tabac (one left) Bond No 9 Chinatown (small bit left in sample vial) Annick Goutal Passion first come, first served; einsof at rocket mail dotty commie <3

jjlook March 11, 2014

Hello, I've have been helped on this before (and swapped with others...) I have been hoping to smell some Miller Harris L'air du rien for awhile, but haven't been able to find it... Would also dream of smelling Mitzah. Anyone can help a lady out... Have some weirdo/vintage things to trade, like Organza Indecence, the original Donna Karan Signature and the old-school Betsey Johnson, and others. thanks! j

Becky March 11, 2014

HI, Fairies! I am really hoping someone has a few drops of Cuir de Lancome or Amaranthine languishing around somewhere. Thanks so much!

peppermoon March 11, 2014

Spring is putting me in the mood for realistic, beautiful nature scents. I'd love to try a little MDCI Rose de Siwa, or foresty scents like Slumberhouse Norne and Serge Lutens Fille en Aiguilles. I'm hoping that everyone is going to have a beautiful March!

Elia March 11, 2014

Dear Fairies, my wish is for a rarer Guerlain to fill in on the gaps I have. anything from Nahema, Parure, or Terracotta Voile d'Ete, or an exclusive like Tonka Imperiale or Spirituese Double Vanille, or a vintage formulation of something like Mitsouko, Jicky, Vol de Nuit, or L’Heure Bleue or a smidge of a parfum of Mitsouko, Vol de Nuit or Samsara. Any one would fit my wish. ty

Claire March 11, 2014

Hello Fairy Godmother! I would swoon for a sample of CdG Avignon, or a bit of L'Artisan Seville a l'Aube.

einsof March 11, 2014

ARGH!!! the agony of a Libra trying to make a decision. if i may, i'd like to try this: i am interested in ANYTHING tuberose. Tuberose is my note du jour and i am sticking to it. (please bear in mind that since for YEARS i was natural ONLY, the only synth tuberose i have tried is Fracas. no, seriously. *laugh*) Thank you for this amazing time of the month (i am still giggling like a school girl over the idea you do this EVERY MONTH!?!?!) i have a few new possible samples since last month and will post them a little later in case someone specifically asks for them. cheers! <3

Jamie March 11, 2014

Dear Fairy Godmothers, does anyone have a bit of Nina Ricci Love in Paris or The Vagabond Prince Enchanted Forest that they might share with me? Thank you!

Rebekah March 11, 2014

I'm really interested in "salty" rose scents. I like Stella, but to me it smells very linear. I'm very interested in trying a sample of Parfum de Rosine's Ecume de Rose, but really anything that seems salty or mineral-y and rosy! You can be in touch w

thegoddessrena March 11, 2014

I'd like to try anything from House of Matriarch, especially Coco Blanc or Parfumerie Generale Arabian Horse

einsof March 11, 2014

YEA!!! i get to pay it forward!! :) i can set you up with some Citron Tabac. send your details to einsof at rocketmail dotty commie. cheers!

Lynne Marie March 11, 2014

meant my correction to go here... It's that kind of morning, The name should read Lynne Marie

Lynne Marie March 11, 2014

Name should read Lynne Marie, for some reason the comments section keeps deleting it!

Lynne March 11, 2014

Dear Fairy Godmother, I am hoping that someone out there has an unloved sample or decant of Happy Spirit Magical Nights by Chopard. It was a flanker to Happy Spirit and was only produced for a short time. It has become my holy grail. I had a very small sample that I used sparingly until it was gone but I miss it so much! I live in the US and my email is clevelandvitz1 at gmail dawt com I'll be posting some reverse fairy offerings later on. Sending spring wishes your way as it snows here in New England...

rosarita March 11, 2014

Hi, just wanted to post that I've lost the address of the person I was supposed to mail to last month. I'm sorry! It was someone in France and I really only want to ship in the US; her flag indicator thingie was wrong. My deepest apologies!

Beck March 11, 2014

Good evening everyone, I would absolutely love to try a sample/small decant of Andy Tauer's Lonestar Memories or MFK's Absolue Pour Le Soir or Lumiere Noire Pour Homme. I reside in New Zealand and would like to send a small sample package to you in return. Thank you, Beck.

lucasai March 11, 2014

Dearest perfume fairies! This month I would like to try any of the fragrances by Providence Perfume Co. (especially Tabac Citron) and my other wish is to try any of Chanel Les Exclusifs in extrait concentration. Hope anyone will be able to help :)

Tena March 11, 2014

I can't believe it is March already !! Perhaps it is the 10 foot snowbank in my yard that makes the idea hard to believe :P. I am hoping that some wonderful Godmother has a smidge of Al-Rehab's Chocko-Musk or a taste of Jalaine's perfume oil in Silk that they could share. I am in Canada if that makes it easier/more challenging for anyone.Thanks so much.

hippychic March 11, 2014

Years ago I had a bottle of My Sin perfume by Lanvin which I loved. I haven't seen/smelled it since the 80's, so it would be great to find it again.

Amy K March 11, 2014

Dear Fairy Godmother, I would love to have a small sample of Piguet Knightsbridge. It sounds so nice, and it's so hard to come by in the US. Thanks!
