June 2014 Perfume Sample Fairy Godmother

Esperanza the Perfume Fairy Godmother



Hey, it is time again for the Perfume Sample Fairy Godmother for June 2014.     So here’s how Fairy Godmother works – this post will be open for the entire month of June 2014.   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 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 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)

Well, this just stinks. I opened up a phoney UPS shipping notice and got an attack of Ransomeware, Called Cyberwall. It destroyed all my data and PDFs, family pictures etc. And no, I am not supporting this criminal behavior by paying 500 bucks to get my data back. I DO need you all to send your addresses again to jdeangeo at aol dot com. So, I'm calm, things are under control now, all my client's data was already on their own private external hard drives.

My belated reverse post, up for grabs, one of each of the samples listed below. Just to help a fairy out: If you can, please claim at least five or six that you'd like to try. I can do one international package right now, and the remainder need to be US. Creed Royal Water Montale Vetiver des Sables Arden Red Door Organza (a mini, less than half full) TF Lys Fume Bulgari Black old, probably badly stored, probably rancid Miss Dior EdC (full disclosure!) Mugler Cologne Andrea Maack Coal Sisley Eau de Campagne Chanel No. 22 Bruno Acampora Musc EdP Jacomo Silences PdT Narciso Rodriguez for Him Musk (not the oil, not sure how else to distinguish it from the many perfumes with the same name, but it is great stuff!) Bobbi Brown Beach (couple drops left) Belle d'Opium Jour d'Hermes Alien

Something to play with? Why, yes! If you go to snapfish and login as perfumefairies, with a password of 2muchperfume, you can add pictures of your wonderful bottles of perfume for others to drool on. If you add WTF to the title, we can all help you find What's This Fragrance. I've put in five really not well done pictures, but I'll try to learn to do better. We will be able, as a group, to make books, calendars, etc. jdeangeo at aol dot com. Our email is perfumefairies7 at gmail dot com.

cara June 15, 2014

Hello June Fairy Godmothers! I would love to try anything that smells authentically of coconut - coconut milk, coconut cream, sweetened coconut, etc. Doesn't matter what format (i.e., perfume oils are fine by me!)

Patty Pong June 14, 2014

I'm going to change my wish, I forgot Esperanza has a hard time getting Profumum Roma :) So my NEW wish is something unisex from the Santa Maria Novella line…one of the Acqua one? or Lavanda ones? or perhaps the Santa Maria Novella Classica?

Merlin June 12, 2014

Hi everyone! I am on a patchouli bender lately and have the following problem. A store here sells Patchouli Leaves by Montale but they do not have a tester of it! I did one blind buy from them and ended up having to sell the Montale half-price:( No blind buys ever again! Does anyone have a sample of this scent, Montale Patchouli Leaves, or any other worthy patchouli would be very much appreciated!

Apollo C June 12, 2014

Hi Fairy Godparents, I have been on a sandalwood kick lately, and I was wondering if anyone had access to Musk by Lorenzo Villoresi or M7 by YSL. Thank you!

Rina June 11, 2014

Hello all! I've been MIA, and I've missed the fun! I'd love to try Kilian's Vodka on the Rocks if anyone has some. I have lots of samples and vintage to swap. Ask and I'll see if I have it. Email is rjpsss at verizon dawt net. Thanks!!

Andi June 9, 2014

Good morning, I have hesitated to post a reply here, usually feeling like the odd man out. I know many of you from MUA from a decade ago. I have so much to offer, and seek very little. Some things I have sampled, and need more of: Omnia Platino PG Musc Maori Nez a Nez Parfums Bal Musque And one I am so anxious to try: Shay and Blue Salted Caramel.

donnakitt June 9, 2014

Hi PFGs. I'm late in replying yet wondering if anyone got their hands on Guerlain's Muguet 2014, and if so, might you spare a few drops? I loved the sample a PFG sent from a previous year, and am thinking of springing for a bottle of 2014. Would be willing to split if someone is interested.

Civet June 8, 2014

Here's what's left (if an item you claimed is in the list below, it's because I have quite a bit and can make more than one sample/decant): Aether Arts John Frum and Aether Argent, Ginger Rose, Nude Moderne (samples, teeny bit left) Amouage Opus VIII Annick Goutal Mon Parfum Cherie, Par Camille Balenciaga Florabotanica Bond No. 9 Cooper Square BPAL Absinthe Bulgari Omnia Coral Calvin Klein Obsession Christian Dior Poison (vintage) Giorgio Armani Myrrh Imperiale Gucci Premiere

jamie June 8, 2014

Oh wow! Just emailed you!

Civet June 8, 2014

Hi PFGs! Reverse swap offerings here. Please note that with a few exceptions these are generously sized spray samples or even decants. I received many of these scents from wonderful and generous PFGs over the last year. Some I went on to buy full bottles of, others just didn't work for me, so I want to pass them on to other perfume lovers! If you're interested, please gmail me at civetohell. Here goes:

Here's one for you....I was hunting sassafras notes and came across good ol' Black Phoenix Alchemy. I ordered a couple and received this note: Beloved Jan Last, Thank you for placing an order with WooCommerce! Your order (#20920) was shipped via USPS, USPS Priority Mail on 6/6/2014. If you are so inclined, you may track your package at any time using the link below. I don't even know who WooCommerce is! I don't remember ever being hailed as beloved, lol.

CarolynC June 6, 2014

Hello my lovely perfume FGs. I haven't been around for a few months because I was so overwhelmed by past generosity and wanted to spend time going through samples so I could do some more reverse FG'ing. I'll list a few things over the weekend. In the meantime, I could use your help locating some Fragonard Reve Indien parfum. Apparently it's only available in perfume strength in France. Any amount (or leads as to where I can get some) would be most appreciated!

Elia June 5, 2014

Dear Fairies, my wish is to try a jasmine centric fragrance, where jasmine is the true star, I've tried a couple and off the top of my head ones I've not tried include Olene, Jasmine de Nuit, Sarrasins and Tawaf, although any suggestion I've not tried would be welcome, ty

greennote2 June 5, 2014

I recently got to smell but not try Chanel Jersey. Now I'd love to try it. I'd also love to try Serge Lutens' Encens et Lavande. I'm happy to send samples in return (I've been going through my samples - man, it takes some time!). devilish2 atttt y7mail dotttttt com

Draft June 5, 2014

This month, I'm obsessed with trying these scents: Vagabond Prince - Enchanted Forest (though I'd love to try Land of Warriors and Swan Princess) Serge Lutens - Fleur d'Oranger, Tubereuse Criminelle, Une Voix Noire. (white flowers galore!) Frderick Malle - Carnal Flower (I've tried a drop and I want more to do a proper test) My email is carson r aft at gmail dot com. :D

Patty Pong June 4, 2014

Hi Esperanza :) I'd like to try a bit of Acqua di Sale Profumum Roma. Thank you.

katrin June 4, 2014

Hi Fairies! I'd love to try Marescialla by Santa Maria Novella or Santal Blanc by SL.

Lynne Marie June 4, 2014

Hi Fairies, I'm hoping someone out there can help me with a smidge of Dior's Oud Ispahan or YSL's Majestic Rose? I'm exploring roses mixed with oud and these two sound intriguing. My email is clevelandvitz1 at geemail dawt com. I could also use healing thoughts to get me over this cold that has left me without a sense of smell for 2 1/2 weeks now. It's made me realize what a HUGE part of my life perfume is... I miss sniffing my wrist 8 million times a day :-)

JanLast June 4, 2014

As always, I'm after your weird and different, plus any carnations you may want to throw my way! jdeangeo at owl dot com

Ashley A June 4, 2014

Hi everyone! I would be interested in trying either Etro's Messe de Minuit or CdG's Wisteria Hysteria. You all are so wonderful!

Sutterfield June 4, 2014

Dear Fairy Godmother, I am a perfume newbie and am all agog/obsessed. I have recently read all sorts of a-mazing things about Frederic Malle Eau de Magnolia and would love to try it. I am also having trouble finding a sample of Aramis Perfume Calligraphy Saffron...I'm interested in saffron in general. Thank you! My email is sutterfield at ye olde gmail dotcalm. :)

einsof June 4, 2014

greetings good fairies! i would like, if i may, to take you on a strange journey.... wait... no.. that's Rocky Horror, sorry. i would like, if i may, to hope for Piguet scents i have not tried, in particular Futur & Bandit. For my part, i have a couple of decants of PAN by Anya's Garden should anyone be interested. :) thank you Esperanza & the posse!

Lauren June 4, 2014

Dear Perfume Fairies, some samples I have been dying to try but cannot find......By Kilian Sacred Wood or Imperial Tea and Dior Cuir Cannage. Thank, Esperanza and Patty, and all the lovely perfumistas who love to make others' fragrant wishes come true!

springpansy June 4, 2014

Hi fairy godmother(s)! It's a longshot, but I'm looking for a sample of the new Byredo Gypsy Water Eau de Cologne. I'm a huge GW fan and am thinking I might love this for summer. But I definitely can't invest before sampling. As always, I'd love to reciprocate with something someone else is searching for. debby msrd @ comcastttttt dot netttttt (without the spaces and extra Ts). Thank you!

Peppermoon June 4, 2014

Hello Fairies! This month, I'm interested in trying anything from Profumum Roma or Parfumerie Generale, two houses that I have never tried. Also, I would love to try anything with Angelica as a note.

lucasai June 4, 2014

I'm dreaming about trying Aedes de Venustas Oeillet Bengale. Can anyone help me with a sample?

SallyM June 4, 2014

Greetings Fairy Gs! I missed the Swapmania as I was away, so I'm happy to see the June FG flitting about! This month I would love to try By Kilian Imperial Tea, Valentino Uomo or DSH Le Smoking. As always I have heaps o' vintage to offer in return :-) email is salmack1 at earthlink dawwwwt net Thanks in anticipation!

edpgypsy June 3, 2014

Hello! I was saddened to have missed Swapmania last month while I was out of town, but I am happy to see the return of Esperanza! Summer is finally here and I am looking for something that is going to help me feel fresh when it hits the high 90's! With that being said, I am seeking something from the Guerlain Aqua Allegoria collection since I have yet to try any of those and some of them sound like they might be summer-worthy. If that's not a possibly, another wish that I have this month is to smell Frederic Malle's En Passant. It sounds summery too! My email is my username above in the town of gmail. Thanks and happy June everyone! :)

VanessaBL June 3, 2014

After last month's fairy godmothers' incredible offers combined with swapmania, I think I'm good for this month in terms of samples to try out. However, I would love to ask the godmothers/godfathers out there for something for my boyfriend. He usually wears Bleu de Chanel and Karma by Lush, but he's looking for something a bit more summery. He tried a few samples we had received from a few orders, and at the moment he likes Chanel's Allure Homme Sport. I'd like to find him a few other things in similar styles to try, that aren't too difficult to get ahold of in case he'd like a FB (he's maybe not as dedicated to fragrances as I am!). I was thinking maybe Voyage d'Hermes or Terre d'Hermes (or maybe the Eau tres fraiche version?), or Dior Homme Sport which I hear are nice, although I'd like to hear your suggestions as well! Thanks! You can find me in hawtmail at vanie_b_l

leathermountain June 3, 2014

Happy June, Fairies! I've caught up with all my domestic shipments, and the internationals are almost out the door. Hurrah! For me, June means roses.... I wish, please, for a decant of Sonoma Scent Studio's Vintage Rose, or a sample of Rose Volupte. I've fallen for Vintage Rose, of course, since it is discontinued. Rose Volupte was made to replace it, and I'd love to check it out, but the perfumer's web orders are on hold for the time being. If a fairy wanted to redirect me, for example, with Velvet Rose or Rose Musc, which I've never tried, then who would I be to refuse? Reverse post to follow.

jjlook June 3, 2014

Hello. I would love to try SL Chene, and anything Benzoin. I have some cool vintage things and samples for swapping... thanks so much

Jennifer Counts June 3, 2014

I'd love to try Manoumalia. I like a good tropical floral, and it sounds right up my alley. If any lovely fairy godmothers (or godfathers) could spare me even a smidge, I'd really appreciate it.

sfsassy June 3, 2014

Dear Fairy Godmother, I missed the boat on trying White Lilac & Rhubarb by Jo Malone. I would love to try a sample of it. The other that I wish to sample is Comme Des Garcons Blue Santal. :) Thank you so much!!

Jaime June 3, 2014

I am dying to try the new Frederic Malle Eau de Magnolia! Our magnolia tree just blossomed and I have been unable to pry my nose away from it, so I am excited to see how this perfume lives up, but so far have been unable to find a sample. Thank you perfume fairy godmother!

windicindi June 3, 2014

Happy June, Esperanza! I am so wanting and have been looking for Versace's original L'Occitane Amber EDT and Essence...Also, Ralph Lauren's Glamorous Daylight or Shimmering Perfume! Many thanks, Cindi jchoppes[at]hotmail[dot]com

Jamie June 3, 2014

Hi perfumed fairy godmothers, Perfume is a newly discovered passion, and the more I explore and learn, the more wistful I am that I never got to experience older formulations. I have only sniffed and sampled new perfumes and my loves are Coco and Shalimar. I am wondering what the older edp versions are like? I am hoping a fairy godmother could spare a drop of either for me to sample and compare to my newer versions? I am in Canada and my contact is JAIMEtong aaaaaaattttttttt G m a i l. Dott. Com Hugs, J

Connie June 3, 2014

Ooo! Yay! Hi Fairy godmothers, I would love the chance to sample Blanc Violette from Histoires de Parfums or Penhaligon's Violetta. If anyone has any other violet recommendations, I would love to hear them!
