May Perfume Sample Fairy Godmother

Esperanza the Perfume Fairy Godmother



Hey, it is time again for the Perfume Sample Fairy Godmother for May 2015.     So here’s how Fairy Godmother works – this post will be open for the entire month of May 2015.   I’ll start a new one at the beginning of June 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 know I am very late with my wish this month, but hopefully there are some late fairies as well. I remember testing FM Iris Poudre and Lipstick Rose, I liked them both but one of them made me feel really happy, it was such a happy and carefree scent. I’d like to revisit it again for the same experience, but which one was it? I tend to think that it was Iris Poudre, but then it could have been also the Lipstick Rose. I am wondering. I am at kathakk at yahoo dot com.

  • Brooke says:

  • Elisa P says:

    I have a sample (approx 2ml) of the new Aedes de Venustas Palissandre d’Or which I am passing on after trying it out for the last few hours and deciding I’d likely not wear it again. Email if interested :

  • edpgypsy says:

    I’m lookin’ for a new love, baby…

    Does anyone have any Insolence EDP? I just tried the Neiman’s in Chicago and the SA told me she didn’t think they stocked it in the US! That is my closest perfume destination (at three hours away).

    I am also hoping someone can let me sample Absolue Rochas for Women. (TOLU. <3 )

    Thanks, all!

  • Ashley A says:

    I’m not looking for anything in particular. Just feeling a little down and overloaded with three jobs and a final exam coming up next week. I’d be interested in trying anything that makes you all feel particularly happy!

    • Ashley A says:

      And P.S. to my last month giftees, I am VERY slow. Your packages are ready to go, I just need to make it to the post office, which will hopefully be this sometime this week!

    • Millicent says:

      Hi Ashley, I would love to put together a package for you. Email me at t a r t u f i at g m a i l dot c o m and we can work out logistics.

  • Peppermoon says:

    Help! I’m on a sugar free diet right now and I’ve been going absolutely CRAZY for gourmands! The sweet tooth addiction has very strong withdrawals… I’m also on the hunt for the perfect cinnamon-bomb perfume and my ideal honey scent (I blame the gourmand board at Fragrantica). So, if you have anything that smells like it belongs in a bakery or a spice closet, send it my way at smith rachel 680 (at) yahoo (dot) com

    To my giftees from last month – I’m late shipping my packages (you should have gotten an email) Like Connie further up on this page, I’ve just finished my last final and I’ll have time now to send them out. Sorry for the wait! I’ve added extra goodies. 🙂

    • Ashley A says:

      I’d love to help you with some gourmands! I am also VERY slow right now (a final coming up next week, boo, plus three jobs that require me to work more hours during finals weeks), but I will get them out to you as soon as I can! I totally understand having a killer sweet tooth. Hopefully these will help. 🙂 Just email me at ashley anstaett at gmail dawtt cawmm

  • Tena says:

    Hello Fellow Fairies,

    It is spring, I finally signed my divorce papers and am looking to try a line new to me : If anyone has any Shaal Nur by Etro, I would be thrilled to try it and send a reverse fairy offering.
    My email is t f k 3 1 (remove spaces) in the land of yahooooooodotcaum.

    • Civet says:

      Congratulaitons! I can help you out with a nice decant of Shaal Nur. Emailing you right now.

  • Hello Fairies, I’ve been really curious about Olympic Orchids Ballets Rouges (or just about anything else from that brand except Osafume, which I did not like), or Bogue Maai.

    You can email me at countsjc at the gee mail.

    • Nemo says:

      I might have something for you Jennifer! I am emailing you now 🙂

    • leathermountain says:

      Hi there Jennifer. If Nemo doesn’t have Ballets Rouges for you, I think I do.

  • Elisa P says:

    In honor of my birthday this month I am gifting away a small batch of samples(am feeling that giving feels as good as getting):
    LArtisan Traversee du Bosphore
    LArtisan L’ete un Douce
    Diptyque Florabellio
    Diptyque L’Eau (a challenging one)
    Amouage Reflection
    ELDO Like This (Tilda Swinton )

    Would like to ship to one place only. USA only.

    • Aaron says:

      I would love to try all of these if given a chance!

      • Elisa P says:

        Great! Some of these are really well liked by others. Just not by me.
        P r e t s k y 3 5 at hawt male. Contact me.

  • Pixel says:

    Happy May, all! This PFG has been quite busy sampling over the past month, my little box of orphans is overflowing. So I’m giving away several grab-bags of 8-10 fumes each. If you’d like one, mail me at emc dawt 7 1 1 7 in the land of ggggggmale, and let me know what you like/dislike. US only.

    • Pixel says:

      Ok, I’ve got a couple of takers but lots more to give away. Let’s see if I can tempt you… I have: a full set of Olivier Durbano; lots of DelRae’s (but not Wit, sorry); lots of vetivers (Mona di Orio, LesNes Turtles, Hermessence, SL…), a bunch of sandalwoods and other woods (Tam Dao, Creed, CdG, By Killian), Carthusias, several Slumberhouse scents…. ping me!

    • Pixel says:

      …th-th-th-that’s all folks! Thanks for playing this month!

  • Vanie says:

    Hi fairies! I recently almost cleared my “I-reaaaally-want-to-try-this” list by ordering a bunch of samples from STC. Unfortunately, one was missing: Tauer Une Rose Chyprée.
    I also kind of regret not getting a set from Parfums de Rosine. I’d like to try any fragrance from their line (especially Ecume de Rose, which sounds great).
    I’m in the land of gmail under vanessa dot b dot laperriere

  • foxbins says:

    I’d really like to try a smidge of Portrait of a Lady–somehow I missed it! I have lots to sample in return–Thanks! I’m at my username in the land of aol.

  • Julie L says:

    Happy Spring everyone! Is anyone interested in a full bottle swap with me? I have full bottle of Galanos de Serene, edP, 60 mls. Sprayed once. I bought it hoping it would be similar to the original Galanos but it’s nothing at all like it. This one is very much like the “musk skin” perfumes with a strong dose of sandalwood. None of those ever ever worked on my chemistry. Boo! And it’s very long lasting. I just want it out of my life, y’all :). My email is Jullease at Yawhoooo. We can work out details later if you have something that will make us both happy possiers and fairies!
    Hugs and kisses!

  • Elisa P says:

    Hi all, I’m looking for the discontinued D.S & Durga My Indian Childhood. Would be delighted to find some!

  • Connie says:

    I would love the chance to sample Slumberhouse Vikt, Leather Oud from Dior, or Tobacco Rose from Papillon Perfumes!

    I’m finally back from college and finished my last final last night!- Which means I’ll finally be sending out my godmother packages from last month! Sorry to my godchildren, but I promise to make them exciting and stuffed packages!

    • matildaben says:

      Connie, I have a sample of Leather Oud I can send you. matildaben at the gee mail dot bomb.

  • Eloquaint says:

    Fairest Fairies! Has anyone got any Chanel Bois des Iles, or Amouage Jubilation, man or woman? I’d also love anything by Ava Luxe. Or anything by Vero Profumo. Yup, my head’s all over the place this month. Thank you!

  • Nemo says:

    Hi perfume fairies 🙂

    I am very curious about trying Andy Tauer’s Incense Extreme or Incense Rose. Thank you!

    • SmellyDandelion says:

      • SmellyDandelion says:

        Sorry won’t be able to send it bc of Royal Mail restrictions. PLEASE HELP NEMO try Andy Tauer.
