Perfume Sample Fairy Godmother February 2015

Esperanza the Perfume Fairy Godmother


Hey, it is time again for the Perfume Sample Fairy Godmother for February 2015.     So here’s how Fairy Godmother works – this post will be open for the entire month of February 2015.   I’ll start a new one at the beginning of March 2015.   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)

    I’m late this month, but I’d love some Serge Lutens if there’s any fairy dust left for me! One of my New Year’s Resolutions is to work my way through an entire perfume house, so I’m doing Serge and probably L’Artisan as well. 🙂

  • Sun Mi says:

    Hi everyone!!

    I’d be extremely grateful if anyone has a smidge of Cuir d’Ange they could spare! I’m sunmisun at the gmail. Thanks everyone!

  • lauryndb says:

    Hey everyone,

    I’ve missed you! I know this is probably highly unlikely, but I would be incredibly grateful for any amount of Ava Luxe Midnight Violet. Would also love to try Jovoy Liturgie des Heures, if anyone wants to part with a smidge.

  • Winterlude says:

    I’m not wishing for anything, I just wanted to tell you how wonderful I think this is!
    I recently discovered this sight after buying the Niche and Classic Sampler Set, from Surrender to Chance. I am loving it. I had to try the Animalic Skank set as well. The way Patty described them was too much to resist. Unfortunately, I think I may be unable to detect indolic scents.
    Did I use that word correctly? I’m a newbie, remember! I’ve tried them all, and nary an unwashed panty or waft of barnyard in sight. Or scent, as the case may be. Do those scents usually hit you right away, or will they become more pronounced with time and as I try more and more perfumes?

    • Julie L says:

      Winter life, I’m no expert but what I feel is a slightly unwashed clothes smell, or greasy hair with those. For example some deep jasmines do that…for a long time I didn’t know why jasmine oil makes me want to wash, but that’s what helped me to understand indoles. And yes, on me, they do ramp up with body heat and time on the skin. Try some white florals!

  • Civet says:

    Hi, PFGs! I finally tried Guerlain Cuir Beluga, and it doesn’t smell like whale skin at all. In fact, I loved it. So, if anyone has some Cuir Beluga lying around, that would be wonderful. Thank you!

  • Julie L says:

    And I’ll end the MK give away here! Thanks for replying, ladies! 🙂

  • AllGirlMafia says:

    Hello ladies,

    Im looking for Donna Karan Chaos as we have found love together.

    Also I’ve tried a few Frederic Malles and I really like the style of the house. If anyone has any to spare I’d be happy for it.
    Yahoo email is by username realmizz04.

    • Rina says:

      Have you tried Lipstick Rose? I have a sample I can send you if you’d like. Let me know, rjpss at verizon dawt com.

  • Aaron B. says:

    Hello Fairies!

    I have become extremely interested in fragrances designer and niche over the past 6 months to a year or so. I have requested to receive some samples here before will poor luck on anything actually arriving or being mailed out to me! I am honestly looking to get my hands on any and everything at the moment since I am trying to build up my fragrance knowledge. I would be willing to accept any and all donations since I am a college student and do not have too much extra money to buy decants and such!

    Thank you!


    Oh and P.S. my email is aaronnbutler93 and that is at yahoo.

  • odonata9 says:

    Another reverse godmother here. Any newbies out there in the US only interested in a mixed pack of 8-10 samples? I probably have enough for 3 people. I need to rehome a bunch of samples that are just sitting aournd – they are a combo of niche and mainstream stuff. Email me at jasouza9 in the land of hotmail.

    • Aaron B. says:

      I think I may have received a few samples from you at one point, however if you would be willing to send a couple my way that would be great. I can email you as well. I am still working my way through as many fragrances as possible!

    • Julie L says:

      Odonata, if no one else asks I’ll join this one! Just a few would be ok to get me by ! 🙂 Ilol email when I get to the computer at work-ours is acting up right now. Thank you!

  • Pixel says:

    Hello all… paying it forward this time. I am offering 3 grab-bags of 8-10 samples each, scents from houses such as Chanel, Aftelier, SL, and so on. Shipping to US only. Contact me at emc dawt 7 1 1 7 at ggggggmail. Let me know if you have any particular preferences, I’ll accomodate if I can. Ready, set….go!

  • thegoddessrena says:

    I would love to try Violettes du Czar from Oriza L.Legrand, Ambre Fetiche from Annick Goutal, or anything from IUNX

  • Tena says:

    Welcome to Feb all my wonderful fairy friends. If anyone has a drab of DelRae Wit or Bogue’s Maai, that they would be willing to ship to Canada,I would be very grateful.
    Stay warm

  • Ashley A says:

    Hi wonderful fairies! I would love to try some Papillon Anubis and I’m also looking for anything violet. Thank you all as usual!

  • Julie L says:

    Hello fairies! This is going to be a “two part” post!
    1. I am offering a give away, as a thank you for all the lovelies here! I am offering a 1/4 bottle of Michael Kors, Gold, EDP free to a good home! A small mystery bag of samples will be included. Nothing in return required. Leave a response here and if more than one replies I’ll just close my eyes and randomly choose. I Just want to spray it forward for all of the generosity I’ve been shown here 🙂

    2. What I am wishing and dreaming for is anything from Caron, especially Parfum Sacre….and anything smoky, patchouli, incense (as usual, ha ha!) or deep florientals. Older houses are fine with me, and seem to mesh with my chemistry well.
    Thank you!!!!

    • Connie says:

      I would love the Michael Kors and mystery samples, if no one else claims them!
      Very generous of you, Julie! My emails is constance (dot) beck-treadway (at) yale (dot) edu

    • Maya says:

      I would also be interested in the Michael Kors Gold. BWF and a top note of hyacinth, What could be better except a bit of mystery too.

      • Maya says:

        Ooops. forgot – fatima1174(at) yahoo (dot) com. Sorry I can’t help you but I don’t care for Caron perfumes, new or old and the samples I had are long gone.

        • Julie L says:

          Oh, ok! Sorry I just saw your reply! I’ll just decant some for you out of the bottle, is that ok?

    • Pixel says:

      Hi Julie, I have some Parfum Sacre. Email me if you want it… emc dawt 7 1 1 7 at gggmail.

      • Julie L says:

        Pixel you’re awesome! But I just logged back in thus morning and see someone already asked for that? Sure it’s ok?? Thanks- will email at work today!

  • Patty Pong says:

    Dear FGM do you have any Serge Lutens de Profundis I could try out? 🙂 Thank you for looking.

  • Vanie says:

    Hi Fairies!
    I am craving violets. I’d like a few drops of Borsari Violetta di Parma and Tom Ford Violet Blond (before this one disappear completely!)
    I’m in hotmail under vanie_b_l


  • Connie says:

    Hi Fairies!
    I’d love to sample some cheapies this month- particularly Laurence Dumont Tendre Madeleine, Yves Rocher Eau de Vahines, and Eau des Missions.

    • Tena says:

      Hi Connie – I can help you with the Tendre Madeline and the Eau de Missions
      Email me at t f k 3 1 (omit spaces) in the town of yahooooooodotcaum

  • Joaquim says:

    Dear Fairies,
    I have been looking for some drops of La via del Profumo’s Tawaf for ages, and also something from Slumberhouse.
    I’m from Spain (EU), and my mail is: joaquinsune at yahoo dot es

    Thank you!

    • Anne says:

      Hey, I have a small decant of Tawaf I would be willing to pass on if you are interested. It is beautiful, but won’t stay on my skin. Let me know and I will email you.

  • Neva says:

    Hi dear Fairies, could someone help me with a small sample of Tam Dao or Jardin Clos by Ditpyque? I’d be glad to offer something in return.
    I’m in Europe and my address is modesty blaise 65 (without spacing) at yaw hoo dot com. Thank you!!

  • shuvanidev says:

    Hi fairy godmothers! I am looking for some gourmand Indies – not picky 🙂 My email is s h u v a n i d e v AT yahoo dawt com, thanks!

  • Sarah I says:

    Hi lovely perfume posse, I’m up in glacial Canada and would love to try some big bold warming perfumes that I have read are great in the cold! Guerlain Naheme (because I think it is suppose to have peru balsam?) and Caron Parfum Sacre because everyone talks about it 🙂 My email is: catsmeow fiftyfive (but as the number, and no space) at the hawt male. Thanks 🙂

  • Rina says:

    Hi Everyone! Ve been MIA for awhile but think of y’all fondly and often! Wondering if anyone has any Alexander McQueens they no longer want. I miss him terribly and would love to have something of his in my collection. I have lots of bits and bobs so if you’re looking for something, maybe I have it. I’m at rjpss at verizon dawt com. Thanks so much!

    • Rina says:

      Sorry all, it was brought to my attention that I am a dot NET, not a dot com. Bad habit, that. Thanks!

      Also, wanted to add, I have an art project due that involves small, 1-2ml perfume sample bottles (the dept. store usual) so if there is anything you’ve been given, gifted, received with purchase that isn’t high quality, no one here would want, can’t stand, etc. send them to me and I’ll turn them into ART! Email me and I can even help with shipping. Thanks everyone!!

  • donnakitt says:

    Hi Fairies,
    I would love to try anything by Strange Invisible Perfume this month. And a shout out to my amazing Fairy from last month, maggiecat!

    • Donnakitt, I have a little bit of Dimanche by SIP that I could send you. I may still have a little Prima Ballerina left too, but I can’t promise I still have that one. Email me at countsjc at the gee mail.

  • Anne says:

    I realise it is probably a lot to ask given that I am fairly new here (and ununable to stick to one username!) but if anyone has even the tiniest sample of Neela Vermeire Mohur Extrait I would be endlessly grateful. It may be the only way I can smell it short of buying a plane ticket. If not… c’est la vie.

    My email is enname dot mori at the usual suspect affiliated with google.

  • Cheryl Guzman says:

    Dear Fairy God Mother,
    Because I am a hog, I need to sample 4 scents to complete ME for the month of February.
    Hiram Green – Moon Bloom
    Hiram Green – Shangri La

    And, yes..,.,,

    Surrender to Chance Surrender and
    Cold Water Canyon.

  • Amy K says:

    Happy Groundhog Day, y’all. I would really love to try a sample of Masque Milano Russian Tea if someone has a wee drop to spare. My email is alligator dot elevator at gee male. Thanks so much!

  • rosarita says:

  • Becky says:

    I am craving HONEY. I would love to try a wee bit of Botrytis or KK Pure Honey (or anything else that smells of bee vomit in the best way). :). Please to email at s c h o o l m a r m 8 0 AT the gee male.

  • Angie says:

    Dearest Perfume Fairies <3

    I would love to sample or unload any unloved decants of The Different Company's Oud for Love, Xerjoff Zanzibar or Slumberhouse Sadanne.

    Thank you!

  • Eloquaint says:

    Fairest Fairies~

    I am still searching for a bit of Cacharel’s Eden. But as that seems an impossibility, I would like any samples from Keiko Mecheri or Roja Dove.

    I love to play reverse fairy as well-otherwise I have no good answer when my husband asks me why the hell I’m hoarding all the empty boxes in the basement. You can reach me at lmdettloff at gee! m-a-i-l.

    Thank you!

  • Ellen says:

    Dear Fairy Godmother, I would so like to try some Ava Luxe fragrances. I’m at NiceVULadyataoldotcom.

    • LaDona says:

      How strange! I just won an auction that includes a half-bottle of Ava Luxe Sacred. Should be here next week, ( fingers crossed!) I’d be happy send you a wee dram when it arrives. I am ladonah at the gee mails, if you’d like it. I am LOVING a this whole perfume thing!
