October Perfume Sample Fairy Godmother

Esperanza the Perfume Fairy Godmother

Hey, it is time again for the Perfume Sample Fairy Godmother for October 2015.  Going to add something new this month.  First the general guidelines on how Fairy Godmother works – this post will be open for the entire month of October 2015.   I’ll start a new one at the beginning of November 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.  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.

New thing!!  I will play Perfume Posse Fairy Godmother and go through the list and grant at least two 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.   If I can’t find two I can help with or you’re not sure what to wish for and you get picked, I’ll send you a little sample pack of some new releases, which you can wish for too!  I’ll announce who those people are when I put up November’s post.  Good luck!

    Hello! I’ve been wondering about Estee Lauder lately. I’ve tried almost everything at multiple department stores, but I can’t help thinking their testers are off because most of them smell the same (especially Azuree and Private Collection)! Is it just my nose? The testers? The reformulations? I’ll trust whatever glorious samples you can send me, just let me know at my sublimisomnium at outlook daught com.

    Hello Posse Peeps,

    I’m looking for samples of Mugler Les Exceptions except for Oriental Express (I have a FB of this). I would be happy to swap the sample(s) for something in my collection as long as you’re in the U.S. Please click on my name for my email address. Thank you!

  • lucasai says:

    If anyone would be willing to get rid of any of the samples from Prada Olfactories collection I would be in 7th heaven 🙂
    But Tobacco Rose from Papillon will be nice too 🙂

    Hello Fairy godmother, I find the leaves changing color and the air getting very cold (ok 45 F but still!) and I’m severly lacking in the fall perfume departement! Could you perhaps whisk your wand and turn up some cozy scents for october?

  • Heidi says:

    OK — here’s kind of a weird one that I remember loving when I was younger, though I can barely remember what it smelled like, just that it was warm and sexy and smelled grown-up: Charles of the Ritz, from the early ’80s. heidi dawt czerwiec at the mail of the g.

  • Becky says:

    Maybe it’s the parent-teacher conferences talking, but I am already beat, and it’s only Monday. I am hoping for some incense-y goodness to calm down/recharge with.

    I am hoping someone recently sampled Unum Lavis or Incense Flash and haaaaaated them, in which case I will gladly free you of your burden.

    Keeping my eyes open for things I can pass along this month. 🙂

    Thanks, everyone!
