March Perfume Sample Fairy Godmother

Esperanza the Perfume Fairy Godmother

First things first – the two wishes I’m granting from February – Ladona – Ambre Russe –  Mariana –  something from MDCI.  Melissa – Amoreuse.  Both of you, click on Drop us a Note at the top, send me your address, list what I just said I’d send you. I’ll send you a note back to let you know I got the e-mail, and then they’ll be on their way.

Hey, it is time again for the Perfume Sample Fairy Godmother for March 2016.   First the general guidelines on how Fairy Godmother works – this post will be open for the entire month of February.   I’ll start a new one at the beginning of April 2016.   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. 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 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 February’s post.  Good luck!

  1. Thanks, Patty!

    I’ve been hoping to try some of the harder-to-find Chanels (e.g., Misia or 31 Rue Cambon) and any of the Van Cleef & Arpels Collection Extraordinaire. I know the flag icon will show me to be in France, but I also have an address in the US, so I can receive either in the US or France. Thanks for your help 🙂

    • Alas, I don’t have either of the 2 Chanels you name, but I do have 1932, Coromandel, and Beige, if you want to try any of those. I’d be happy to mail them to a U.S. address for you.

  2. Looking for spray of either Balenciaga Pour Homme or By Dolce & Gabbana for men. I have quite a few 3.4 spray bottles of Angel and other assorted goodies all new but out of box

    • Sorry, I’m confused, are you offering the Angel bottle as a giveaway? If so, I’d love to claim it!

  3. If anyone can spare a very small sample of Frederic Malle Lipstick Rose or Portrait of a Lady? No one around my part of Texas has these and they get mixed reviews. I’ve never tried any of his fragrances. Maybe distribution will be better with Estee Lauder?

  4. I just broke up with my boyfriend today, so I could use some perfume therapy. Some girls eat chocolate when they have a breakup – I drown myself in scents. If anyone has a white floral sample to spare, I’d love to try it. White florals are my comfort food. Orange blossom, tiare, gardenia and jasmine can pick up my mood pretty quickly. (creamy or honeyed/nectarous rather than sharp or soapy). Since I don’t really know what I want specifically this month, suggestions for scents I should try are also welcome.

    • Hi Peppermoon – pm me at maggiecat1005 at americaonline and send me your address. I’ll put together a care package for you. Be warned – I’m terrible at labeling, but white florals are my favorite and I could send you enough to get you through.

    • I’m so sorry Peppermoon! I do the same thing! Perfume gets me through tough times. My husband got laid off last week and I drowned my sorrows at Ulta spritzing myself like a crazy lady.

      • Wow, I’m so sorry for you both 🙁 My best wishes as you get through these tough times.

      • Sorry to hear about your husband, Katherine, I hope he has a hobby that helps him cope as well. Perfume is almost magical in its effect on mood. With certain scents, I feel calmed and protected from the outside world. I’ve been wearing cheery citruses so far, they seem to help banish the blues. Best of luck, dear!

  5. Dear Fairies, recently I’ve read some reviews of Neela Vermeire’s perfumes which I’m not familiar with because they have no distributor around here. Everybody is delighted with the line and I would love to try something. Anything would be fine. If you can spare a drop to send me, please let me know at modesty blaise 65 (as one word) at yawhoooooo…Thank you!
    Oh yes, like Koyel above, I also have an address in the US for the time being.

    • Hi, Neva! I have a sample of Mohur I can send you. It’s very complex and almost everyone raves about it, but it didn’t work with my chemistry, sadly. If you tell me what kinds of scents you like, I can put something else in the package, too! Sending you an email now.

      xo, Jenny

  6. Hello,
    Reading a previous article, I would love to sample YSL Paris, Also, Chanel Misia would be lovely. I have many to share in return. I am at audesko1 at the Gee mail site.

  7. Hi everyone! It’s been a little while since I’ve participated in the perfume fairy godmother, but I’ve had some good experiences in the past and I’d love to meet some more friendly perfumistas. Right now I’d really love try Byredo Accord Oud, and I’m hoping to try the Shalimar flankers Souffle or one of the Ode a la Vanilles. If anyone has any of those they can share, I’d be happy to share something in return! Thanks 🙂 You can reach me at sunmisun in the land of gmail.

  8. Hi all — I’ve been hearing wonderful things about both the Neela Vermeire and Aftelier lines, but have yet to try them. Anyone have any samples they’d like to share? I can send some goodies in return, if desired. You can reach me at heidi.czerwiec in the mail of g.

    • Hi, Heidi! I just promised my sample of Mohur to Neva, but I am very happy to say that I have Aftelier samples of Lumiere, Oud Luban Extrait, and Cuir de Gardenia Extrait that I can send to you. (I just ordered a mini of Cuir de Gardenia, so I can send you my sample.) Be forewarned that they are quite teensy samples in cunning little round bottles, but if you dab *very* sparingly they can last you a few wearings. I’ll email you now for your address.

  9. Hello fairyland—

    Anybody have any smidgen of Ormonde Jayne Woman? or OJ Orris Noir? Even a drop would suffice. I’m also curious if anyone has tried Soivohle’s Twelve Keys… I don’t need a sample, necessarily, just a review! I’m at jenny plus katz plus music at the G spot. So to speak.

  10. Interested in trying some more of Parfumerie Generale. I have Coze and Indochine, but have not tried much else
    I am marianna_r in yahhooooland

    Thank you

  11. Jenny I sent you a note. I can spare some Orris Noir

    • Yay! You are so nice. I’ve emailed back. I don’t have any Parfumerie Generale… anything else you’re wishing to sniff?

  12. Hi fairies this my first time participating in Perfume Sample Fairy Godmother, what a great idea by the way! I didn’t see anyone specifically ask for these by I have two samples I’d love to send someone who’s interested. They are Parfums Delrae Amoureuse and Ramon Monegal L’eau De Rose. Also if anyone has a sample of Kersene Unknown Pleasures or Serge Lutens Un Bois Vanille they’d be willing to spare I’d really appreciate it. I’m starting to add more niche fragrances to my collection and I’m really interested in testing these two. I’m in the US and would prefer to ship in the US as well. Thanks everyone!

  13. Oops almost forgot I can be reached at Jteets28 at G Mmmail.

  14. hello fairies,
    i am still very keen to have some skin time with iris poudre by frederic malle and would be interested to try rose ikebana from the hermesessence range.
    my email is rachael underscore be at the mail that is hot dawtcawm.
