Perfume Sample Fairy Godmother October 2014

Esperanza the Perfume Fairy Godmother

 

 

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

I am probably a little late on this one, but I would love to try Cuir Ottoman or Gucci Envy. A drop or two will do just fine.

Patty Pong October 3, 2014

I would like to try Tauer - L'Air Du Desert Marocain :)

Lucasai October 3, 2014

Anyone could help me sample Hermes Cuir d'Ange or fragrances from Papillon Perfumery?

Jaime October 2, 2014

Happy October everyone! I've been in search of a couple of perfumes and I'm afraid I may have missed the boat because I can't seem to find them anymore. I'm wondering if anyone could spare a dab of Agent Provocateur's L'agent or Marni by Marni? I'm in Canada and would be happy to repay the favour with some chocolates or other goodies (I'm afraid I don't have much of a fragrant collection yet to offer any coveted lovelies in exchange.) I'm on gmail and I am: snarkyshiba Thanks!

hajusuuri October 2, 2014

Hello perfume fairies, please save me from doing a blind buy of Hermes Kelly Caleche extrait. If you have any to spare, I would be grateful.

Gigi October 2, 2014

Hello Perfume Fairies! i just love this idea. Based on a recommendation I'd received here before, I'm hoping for a try of Aubusson Histoire D'Amour if anyone has some to spare. I'd be happy to do a little sample swap if anyone is interested. I'm in Canada and my email is bonanza 29 at hotmail dawt com.

katrin October 1, 2014

I would love to test the new, post 2009 Opium and the flankers that have followed since then. I am at kathakk at yahoo dot com

Draft October 1, 2014

My wish this month is to test something from a few companies that I haven't sniffed yet - The Different Company, Keiko Mecheri and Miller Harris. carson r aft at gmail.com

Tena October 1, 2014

I am hoping someone has just a smidge of Regina Harris Amber Vanilla that they wouldn't mind sending to Canada. If so, please email me at t f k 3 1 (remove spaces) at yahoooooo dot caum Thanks

Peppermoon October 1, 2014

Thanks to my lovely fairies from last month, as always.As the weather turns cooler, I find myself craving some well done gourmands. Nothing too sweet though! If anyone has any suggestions or samples to offer, that would be great! I have a few scents to give out this month and I'll post them later in a separate post, My email is smith rachel [email protected] yahoo dawt com

Neva October 1, 2014

My dear fairies, since I had no luck with my Ormonde Jayne wishes, I'd switch to something else and maybe one of you will fly in my direction. I'd like to try either Plum Japonaise by Tom Ford or Yin & Ylang by Sonoma Scent Studio. If any of you fairies could help, please email me at: modestyblaise followed by 65 at yay hooo doht c o m Thanks!

Nemo October 1, 2014

Hi everyone! I love following the fun that is perfume sample fairy godmother (it's like christmas every month!). I am looking for suggestions on perfumes to try from Le Labo. I really like Santal 33, which is the only one I've been able to sample more than once. Based on sniffing them exactly ONCE on paper, I think I liked Labdanum 18, and I was okay with Rose 31 (but it reminded me of TDC Rose Poivree, which I think I would prefer) and pretty meh on Vetiver 46. Any suggestions for other Le Labos I might try? Thank you!

jjlook October 1, 2014

I've had good luck swapping and smelling neat things from posse members. I am temporarily relocated to the US and will love to pass on the samples I brought here to investigate before i go back home...Little grab bag, of mostly niche 1-2ml vials... BUT if someone had a sample of MV2, Angelique Encens (or something like it?), I'd love to trade it for a manufacturers Feu d'Issey, one of a couple I have...

Lisa October 1, 2014

How have I missed this? It's such a swell idea! My fairy request is kind of vague, so I don't know if this is how to do it. I'm begunning to sample as many iris and/or incense fragrances as possible. If there's one you love and want to evangelize, I'd be thrilled to try a sample! Thank you!

Eloquaint October 1, 2014

Dear fairies, I'm still looking for some Eden by Cacharel. I'd also give some Muscs Koublai Khan by Serge Lutens a very good home. I'd love to play fairy-go-round with my benefactor, too. Thank you!

Civet September 30, 2014

Hey there, fairies! I would love to try Jo Malone Sage & Sea Salt. I spritzed a little last time I was in civilization and found it quite enchanting. Here's my geemail: civetohell. I also have the following reverse PFG offerings: Molinard Habanita EDT Profumum Victrix STACY Prince Obolenski Russian Leather cologne L’Artisan Skin on Skin Soivohle Daybreak Violin (smidge) Memo Kedu Comme des Garcons Wisteria Hysteria Amouage Fate Man Comptoir des Senteurs Collection No. 2 Dame Perfumery Mate, Heliotrope & Patchouli Smell Bent Violet Tendencies Etat Libre d’Orange Closet Queen Annick Goutal Mon Parfum Cheri par Camille

Joaquim September 30, 2014

Dear Fairies, I would love to try anything from Parfumerie Generale, maybe some of the classics like Cuir Venenum, Cozé, Cuir d'Iris...just anything, I didn't tried anything from this house! I'm in Spain (EU), and my mail is Joaquinsune at yahoo dot es Thank you in advance.

Brooke September 30, 2014

hi fairies! i have been so generously sprinkled with pixie dust the past couple months that it's time for me to share the goodness! i will send a little goodie bag to the first person who emails me at neko number 1 at gmail :)

Jennifer Counts September 30, 2014

Dear fairies, if anyone has a bit of Hermes Hiris they could spare, I'd be a very happy camper.

Vanie September 30, 2014

Hi fairies! I read Chandler Burr's A Perfect Scent last month and it made me want to try some of the Eau parfumees au Thé (either one of the green, red, white and green extreme) from Bvlgari. If some samples are unloved, I like to have them. Thks!

Ashley A September 30, 2014

Hi Fairies, thanks again to everyone for all of their generosity all of the time. I am looking to try a smidge of De Profundis or any of the Mona di Orios.

Julie L September 30, 2014

Good morning perfume fairies! :) Just want to FIRST give another, big, thank you to my previous fairies! I've loved email chatting and getting to know you! What I'm dying to try are any of the Andy Tauer perfumes that might holler "Fall and/or sweet incense"....also, I'm close to springing for one of the patchouli fragrances from Molinard, but not sure which one? A sample might help to seal the deal :)......I'm also looking for something "golden, warm, lush, with carnation and cinnamon in it...a true Floriental type perfume"..?...I know they're out there but just don't know WHICH to mention here. And I just KNOW one of you pro's have the answer I'm looking for! Have a great day!

Connie September 30, 2014

Hello lovely fairies! I unfortunately had no luck last month, but hoping someone will be able to grant my wish this time around. Please save me from a blind buy- I really want to try Kalemat from Arabian Oud. I would also be thrilled to try any of the Papillon Perfumery scents, they sound so enchanting. Lots of love!

thegoddessrena September 30, 2014

Magnetic Scent Untitled#2 or Vero Onda voile d' extrait is what I'm curious about at the moment

Becky September 30, 2014

Hey, Posse! I'm looking to try a little Clinique Wrappings or AG Nuit de Etoilee this month. I have to go to work soon (like a CHUMP) but I'll check in later and see if there's anything I can offer up in return. :)

masha7 September 30, 2014

I have been wanting to try anything by Mandy Aftel, Aftelier, either the perfumes or hair products or teas or whatever. I'll try anything!

solanace September 30, 2014

This time I just want to say a big THANK YOU to my perfume fairy, because I´m having so much fun, and so are my mom and my sister in law! Already got a Vent Vert FB, because it´s so classy and the price was right. (It´s a good thing that I never knew the original. Current Jolie Madame, on the other hand, I can´t stand, because I grew up with the real stuff, and now it seems to be cutting carbs, or something.) XOXO

Elia September 30, 2014

Dear fairies, I'll go first :) my wish this month is for some Impossible Iris by Ramon Monegal, ty
