April Perfume Sample Fairy Godmother


perfume sample fairy godmother

Esperanza the Perfume Fairy Godmother

First things first – the two three wishes I’m granting from March – Katherine – Frederic Malle Portrait of  Lady.  Audrey –  YSL Paris.  Jessica – Serge Lutens Un Bois Vanille.  All three 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 April 2016.   First the general guidelines on how Fairy Godmother works – this post will be open for the entire month of April.   I’ll start a new one at the beginning of May 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 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 February’s post.  Good luck! perfume sample magic wand 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 completely new to this smelly hobby so I pray the fairy godmothers will have mercy on my scent deprived soul. I would love to try skanks like Jicky and dark roses like Lutens Rose de Nuit. I have Lyric and love it, got a FB on the way. I also have Rose de Siwa that I want to get a FB of. That is the extent of my collection so far so please have mercy on me. I can be reached at tg underscore svetlanab at that hot mail place.

    Hello Fairies,

    I am almost craving now to sample Neela Vermiere’s fragrances. I would love to try Mohur and pichola if anyone would like to share. I would be happy to return the favor by sending few samples. I am in US.

      Hi Rachael, I hope things are heading in a positive direction for you.

      I no longer have my sample of Beige, but I can recommend it as comfortable to wear and comforting to the spirit. To my nose Beige has no sharp edges or challenging notes, just gentle florals and the Chanel DNA that leans towards elegance.

      An alternative to Beige that is on my must-try-someday list is Frederic Malle L’eau d’Hiver which has a reputation for gentle comfort.

      I hope your wish is granted and that you will find (or have already found) new fragrance to enjoy. 🙂

    • tiffanie says:

      Oh, I am a dope sometimes. Why am I going on about Beige? But Jersey! It is also lovely in that indefinable Chanel manner. Beige and Jersey could be sisters. Alas I don’t have any to share but I hope some will find its way to you soon! Another lavender I love is Brin de Reglisse, but it has a big hit of licorice.

    • Koyel says:

      I hope you get better soon!!!

  • Vanie says:

    I keep reading about YSL Champagne/Yvresse and it sounds like something I would love. If anyone has a sample to pass along, I would be very grateful.
    My email is vanessa dot bergeron dot laperriere, in the land of gmailll.

  • once upon a time, I found the original Ivoire de Balmain and fell in love…bottle is long gone but I still have memories…it would be nice to have it again…..Thanks for your post

  • shuvanidev says:

    Hello! I would dearly love to try Penhaligon’s Lily & Spice if anyone has a drop to spare – thank you! My email is shuvanidev at yahoo dawt com

  • masha7 says:

    Hello, lovely Fairy Godmothers and Godfathers! I would love to try any of the Aedes line that they make for their own shop. The Copal particularly interests me but I’d like to try any of them. I’m also very interested in trying Serge Lutens’ Jeux de Peau, Serge Noire, or L’Orpheline. Thanks so much! I always like to send some fun goodies in return.

  • J. Tong says:

    Hi everyone!
    I would love to sample Lipstick Rose, if anyone can spare a spritz? I’d love to send some goodies in return for your trouble. I’m in Canada and can be reached at: snarkyshiba in the land of gmail. 🙂

  • Sun Mi says:

    I’m on the hunt for Byredo Bullion and Pulp, or L’Artisan Parfumeur’s Amour Nocturne. If anyone could help with something along those lines (or other plum or milk scents), I’d be more than happy to send some fun samples in return! 🙂 my email is sunmisun in the land of gmail.

  • Peppermoon says:

    I’ve been on the hunt for green scents this month. One that was suggested highly was The Different Company Tokyo Bloom. I’d love to try it if anyone has a sample! rsmith 3 (at) uga (dot) edu

    Also suggestions for other green, modern (non-aldehydic!) scents are welcome 🙂

    • Sun Mi says:

      Hi there! I’m on vacation right now, but I could set you up with a sample of Tokyo Bloom next week! I’ll email you.

  • Maureen says:

    My birthday is in early May, and I would love to try the new Guerlain Muguet. I have tried Diorissimo, and loved it. I have not tried too many Guerlain’s, but am very interested in this. I do not have a very large collection, but would be able to send something in return. My contact info is mruf1 at yawhoo dawt com.

  • Gigi says:

    Hi Perfume Fairy!
    I’m really getting into floral leathers, and would love to try some more. I’ve tried Cuir de Lancome, Cuir d’Ange and Cuire de Russie. Even just a suggestion in the same vein would be appreciated!

    • Neva says:

      Hi Gigi, I have a few drops of Heeley’s Cuir Pleine Fleur which I can send you. Please email me at modesty blaise 65 (one word) at yawhooo dawt come.

  • Edward says:

    Hello fairies, very fun, let’s see if I can have my wish granted. 🙂
    Snatched a vintage bottle of Shalimar EdT from the 90’s. Love it. Shalimar has gone by me unnoticed until now. I would love to try the different versions of shalimar that there is out there. And possibly also Coty’s emeraude. It’s supposedly very similar.
    Please contact me at edward nr 17 @ gmail dot com.

  • Maya says:

    I can probably do Seyrig. Sending email.

  • Neva says:

    Hi dear Fairies, I’m hoping to try Bruno Fazzolari’s Seyrig or Mortal Skin by Stephane Humbert Lucas and I’d be happy if someone could help me with that. Of course I could send something in return. I’m regularly checking here.
    My address is modesty blaise 65 (one word) in yahooooland. Thanks so much in advance!

  • fleurdelys says:

    Fleurdelys here; I’ve been out of the blogosphere for a while, but now am checking back in on my favorite perfume blogs. I’m a big fan of Guerlain, but have never tried Chamade. Can anyone spare a drop or two? Please email me at plsny2012 at yahoo dawtcalm. Thanks!

  • Patty Pong says:

    Hi all, I’d like to have some Boston Ivy by DS Durga to see if I want a full bottle. 🙂

  • HeidiC says:

    Dearest Perfume Fairies — last month was the first time I got to participate in granting wishes, and it was SO MUCH FUN. I am dying to try En Voyage’s Zelda, and would be happy to send goodies in return! I’m in the U.S. and can be reached at heidi dawt czerwiec at the mail of g.

    • Koyel says:

      And it was fun receiving your package, Heidi 🙂 I agree that it is at LEAST as much fun to be able to send a package as it is to receive one. Last month was my first time granting a wish, too, and I was SO EXCITED when I saw someone asking for something I had!!! I’m glad other people have this absurd, joyful feeling, too! (Haven’t seen any wishes I can grant yet….)

    • rosarita313 says:

      I can send you a sample of Zelda, it’s gorgeous! Emailing you now.

  • Jessica says:

    Hi perfume fairies! I’m dying to try a sample of L’Artisan Parfumeur Noir Exquis and Keiko Mecheri Loukhoum! I live in West Virginia, U.S. Thanks so much!

  • Debby Hanssen says:

    Hello perfume fairies,
    I am looking for a sample of Profumum Acqua e Zucchero. I live in Colorado, U.S. Always happy to send something desired in return.

  • Koyel says:

    Patty, thanks so much for hosting these wonderful FGM posts 🙂 For the past few months, they’ve been a really amazing way for me to try perfumes that look and sound amazing. This month, I’m hoping to try Memo fragrances, particularly African Leather!

    I have addresses in both France and the USA. Thanks, everyone!

  • Ellen says:

    Dearest Perfume Fairy Godmothers/Godfathers, I would love to smell Amouage Fate Woman and Donna Karan’s Chaos would be chaotically Heaven. Thank you for listening.

    • masha7 says:

      Ellen, I have a smidge of Fate Woman and a regular sample of Fate Man. I do not have the original Chaos but I can send a good sized sample of Jeffrey Dame’s Anarchy, the dupe of Chaos that he made when he bought the formula for Chaos- it’s a lovely spicy labdanum. It is supposed to be identical to the original Chaos, not the reissue. If you want to try these, let me know at masha underscore robb at yahoo dawt com.

      • Ellen says:

        Thank you so much. I’ve sent you the address in an email. I don’t think that Jeffrey Dame still makes/sells Anarchy which is a pity if it was the dupe of Chaos. If you’ve sniffled the original Chaos and the reissue, what’s your take on the difference? I’ve heard its not that different.
