August 2014 Perfume Sample Fairy Godmother

Esperanza the Perfume Fairy Godmother



Hey, it is time again for the Perfume Sample Fairy Godmother for August 2014.     So here’s how Fairy Godmother works – this post will be open for the entire month of August 2014.   I’ll start a new one at the beginning of September.   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)

O puissant and omnibenevolent fairies! I had no idea when I set out to search my usual sample sites that this was going to be an issue, but I'm really having trouble finding Cacherel's Eden. I could buy it on ebay, but I'm going to feel guilty if I bring home another blind buy without at least trying to find a tester first. Thank you for trying! And for loving perfume like I do-I have no IRL friends who love perfume.

Is it ok to say that "one squealed" when a little fairy's package arrived?/! I know I'l be saying this two more times, but THANK YOU, Sharon for your generosity AND my Galanos! I could NOT be more thrilled! It is just perfect! Email sent to you about 15 minutes ago. I only hope I can be as good a "fairy" as you and all the others here at Perfume Posse :) Perfumed Hugs to all! Julie

I realize I am very late, but hoping someone will have some L'Artisan Ananas Fizz to share. I am in the US and my contact is jasouza9 at hotmail dawtcawm I'm happy to send some samples in exchange as well - if you let me know the kind of things you like, I can send a mixed bag.

Brandi August 7, 2014

Hi Fairies! I'll give it a go. My two or three hard to find samples that I am so curious about is Serge Lutens Lavande et Encens and Ormonde Jayne Frangipani or Champaca. Let me know! Surely I have something in my collection you may find of interest as well. Thanks! mbcarli at geeee mail dawt cahm

FeralJasmine August 7, 2014

I am still looking for any samples from the Princesse Hippie line from Des Filles a la Vanille. If anyone in CONUS has them, would be happy to swap other lovelies. My email is wooddogs3 awt gmail dawtcawm.

JanLast August 6, 2014

To the mystery fairy who gifted me with samples of the entire line of Neil Morris, I thank you kindly. It arrived in a black fabric bag packed in packing peanuts. I forgot to look at the postmark, but could find no name or note inside. What a lovely thing, I'm so excited to leap into it. If you'd like to be slavishly thanked, drop me a line at jdeangeo attt aolll dottt commm

Jamie S. August 6, 2014

Dear Fairy Godmothers, I would love to try Delrae Wit, Aedes Iris Nazarena or the elusive Kilian Imperial Tea. Thanks so much!

Vanie August 6, 2014

Hi Fairies, If anyone managed to get his/her hands on some Malle's Eau de Magnolia and has any to spare, I would be very grateful to try it. Also, some Tom Ford Santal Blush or any Vero Profumo (especially Rozy) thrown my way would be much appreciated! Happy August!

Ashley A August 5, 2014

Hi you wonderful Fairy Godmothers! This month, I am curious try Bel Respiro or Bois des Iles. I would also like to try either Eau de Pamplemousse Rose or Eau de Narcisse Bleu. Thanks so much for your generosity, as always!

Lynne Marie August 5, 2014

Dear Fairy Godmother, My wish this month is for a sample of the flanker Miami Glow by Jennifer Lopez. I keep reading how "beachy" it smells and I would love to try it!

Lynne Marie August 5, 2014

Once again, in honor of my birthday month, some reverse fairy offerings. For the first five posse'ers (in the US only please) to respond to me here with your email, I will send you a mixed sample pack of goodies. Happy August and I'm grateful as always to be one year older!!

poodle August 5, 2014

I'm a sucker for bottles with crystals in them but I just can't bring myself to blind buy Hedonist by Viktoria Minya because I'm not usually a peach person and that would be an expensive mistake if I don't like it. So if anyone could spare a few drops I'd be very grateful.

Jaime August 5, 2014

JanLast -- you are just a fairy godmothering machine! I'm sure I speak for everyone here when I say MERCI BEAUCOUP for being such a generous person and for spreading around some of your perfumed fairy dust!

solanace August 5, 2014

Hey, you faries out there... I´d love to try Spicebomb. :)

Patty Pong August 5, 2014

Jaime August 5, 2014

Me again! I don't have much to pay-forward, but if anyone is interested in the following (used) samples, I'd be happy to send them along. US/Canada would be easiest for shipping. -The Body Shop White Musk EDT -Bottega Veneta eau legere -Oscar de la Renta Oriental Lace

Angela August 5, 2014

not sure what happened, but this is in wrong spot, obviously! Sorry

Connie August 5, 2014

Dear Perfume Fairy Godmother, I'm longing to try some scents from Parfums DelRae (namely Mythique, Wit, Amoureuse, or Bois de Paradis), or perhaps Amouage's Fate Woman. Happy sniffing!

Angela August 5, 2014

responded, thank you!

Jaime August 5, 2014

Hello Fragrance Fairies, I've been venturing out of my newbie comfort-zone over the past few months, with the most dramatic jump being Habanita. I am now the happy owner of the EDP, but, gosh, my first spritz of it was definitely a shock. There is so much that jumps out, and it eventually morphs into something so cozy by the end that I wasn't sure if it was the same perfume! Wearing that perfume is definitely an olfactory journey that takes about 12 hours on my skin. My positive experience with Molinard has now left me wanting to try their other creations. I was wondering if any fairies could share a few drops of any other Molinard fragrances? I am in Canada and would be happy to pay for postage! -Jaime

Katrin August 5, 2014

Dear Perfume Fairies! I´d love to try Solaris by Agonist or Andrea Maack´s Dark .(location Europe).

Julie L August 5, 2014

Goodness, how exciting! I am mostly longing for Galanos perfume, by James Galanos....I had a bottle in the early 80's and could kick myself for not getting more before it disappeared....Also, Coromadel by Chanel, patchouli scents, or anything in the CDG Incense series. LOVE smoky, incense perfumes with that addictive oriental vibe. Thank you, fairies! SO glad I found this wonderful site! eeemail: jullease at yaww hoooo dawt com

Joaquim August 5, 2014

Oh! dear fairies, I would love to try Skin Graft by Phoenicia Perfumes, I know, it can be difficult but I you are fairies, do your magic please! If my wish turns to be impossible I'll be happy with some drops of Christopher Street by Charenton Macerations or something from CB I Hate Perfume. Thank you!

lucasai August 5, 2014

Dear perfume fairies, I would like to try new Penhaligon's Bayolea or Tom Ford Mandarino di Amalfi.

rosarita August 5, 2014

Hi everyone! This month I am wishing for any amount of Commes des Garcons Black. I'm in the US, opponatrix at gmail. Thanks so much!

edpgypsy August 4, 2014

Hi everyone! This month I am seeking to try something from Escentric Molecule or Ramon Monegal (maybe Agar Musk or Voramar?). I have heard that Monegal's Agar Musk has a similar vibe to Le Labo's Gaiac 10, which I love but it is a city exclusive and I can't currently get my hands on more. (Or if anyone knows of any others similar to Gaiac 10, I would be open to suggestions!) My email address is my username in the town of gmail. (Oh and I will be posting some reverse listing shortly, just gotta make the list. I have been cleaning out some samples and would love to pass some on.) Have a great August! :)

Angela August 4, 2014

Hi, I'm hoping someone has some tobacco frags to share/samples/small decants that want to put up for adoption. I have many samples and can exchange if need be. Thank you perfume fairies. Email please at makeupgirl9273 aaaaat ggggmmmail dawt com

Tena August 4, 2014

Dear Fellow Fairies, I am truly hoping that someone ha a smidge of Climat or a tiny bit of Ann Gerard Rose Cut that they are able to share. If so, an email to t f k 3 1 (no spaces) in the town of yahoooooo dot commmmm will be the best way to contact me. Thanks.
