June Perfume Sample Fairy Godmother

Esperanza the Perfume Fairy Godmother

First things first – the two wishes I’m granting from April – Ravensandowls – Byredo Mohave Ghost  and Vanie – Byredo Pulp .  All 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 June 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 July 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 July’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 know it’s late for this month but I’d love to get my hands on some Penhaligons Ostara!! r smith 3 (at) uga (dot) edu

    Dear Perfume Fairy Godmothers,

    I would love to try the one of the newer Chanel fragrances, Misia. It seems from reading about it it is retro, and romantic, I do like powdery fragrances, especially Chanel # 19 Poudre. If I could try just a sample, I might like it enough to buy. thanks, mruf1 at ya hoo dot com.

  • Elizabeth says:

    I am hoping for any amount of the now discontinued Valentina Pink to try. I’ve heard it smells like strawberries and is fun in a ridiculous sort of way. Madtolive88510atgmaildotcom thanks!

  • JamieDCHill says:

    Perfume Fairy Godmothers — does anyone have the Irene Neuwirth scent from Barneys? I would love any amount. I can be reached at gmail, using this handle. I am in the U.S.

    I am also looking to try Barbara Herman perfumes (Eris is the company) and the perfumes are Night Flower, Belle de Jour, and Ma Bete.

    It’s a long shot, but I thought I’d ask. Thanks! And as usual, I’m happy to send some fun things in return.

  • Neva says:

    Hi Fairies, I’d love to try something from Parfums Del Rae, preferably Mythique or Wit. Unfortunately I can’t send anything in return overseas because since April we have very strict regulations concerning the transport of liquids and the samples I sent in April came back with an explanation that this kind of goods can’t be sent by airmail. I suppose I can only send something inside the EU by road transport.
    If someone can help, I can be reached at modesty blaise 65 (without spacing) in yahoooooland.

  • Marianna says:

    I had the weirdest experience trying the JM Rare Teas. Neimans had tiny little plastic bottles – literally 2 ml of each fragrance – not even a full bottle that they were spraying in paper. Apparently with the hefty price tag, a lot of stores are not sure if there would even be any interest, so they are not in a hurry to get them. And there is a special display required for them, the bottles cannot be mixed with the regular JM collection. Dark teas were very nice but I was only able to spray it on paper which does not equate to much

    • CbSutcliffe says:

      That IS odd. I’m heading to our Nordstroms to try them this weekend. It will be interesting to see how they are set up.

      • HeidiC says:

        I went to the JM section at my Nordstrom’s, and their eyes got wide when I mentioned the Tea collection — they spoke in hushed tones of how no one can get them. They did say that they’d be thrilled if I had them order a bottle, bought and then returned it, because then they could smell it for themselves! Ha!

  • These posts are great. 🙂

    Does anyone have a sample of either Kenzo’s Jungle l’Elephant or Serge Lutens’ Fille en Aguilles? I have a motley collection if anyone is interested in some randomness.

  • Koyel says:

    Hooray, another FGM post! I seem to make a new frag friend with each of these 🙂

    Hmm, I don’t yet see any desires to fulfill, but I do have a request: I’d love to try Rrose Selavy (after everything I’ve read about it!!), and/or anything else from the Maria Candida Gentile line!

    • Koyel says:

      Sigh…and of course I forgot to clarify that I have addresses in both the US and France, despite the flag by my name. Thanks!

  • Skye Moore says:

    I would love a sample from the Jo Malone herb collection, and I have an almost full bottle f lancome hypnose 30ml to give away 🙂

  • Connie says:

    I’d really like to try Sensei or She <3 Sensei… I remember reading all of the hype about them a few years ago and I still have fear of missing out. 🙂

    • civet says:

      Yah, I’ll be throwing some of these into the unloved sample swap … make of that what you will!

  • Marianna says:

    Hi, I am looking for samples of Onyrico (and of Zephiro, Unguentum, Michelangelo, Enygma), or Francesca Dell’Oro — Fleurdenya or Atelier des Ors — Lune Feline. I have plenty to send back as well 🙂 I can be reached at marianna_r in yahooooland

  • rosarita313 says:

    Does anyone have a sample of Angel Muse to share? I’d be so grateful and always have something to send in return. I’ll be keeping an eye out for any wishes I can grant. Reach me at opponatrix in the land of gee mail.

  • spring_pansy says:

    Hello fairies,

    I don’t see anything here yet that I can send anyone, but I’ll keep watching.

    I am looking for a wee sample of Jo Malone’s Dark Amber and Ginger Lily. Anyone? I’m always happy to send something fun in return.

  • Jessica says:

    Hi everyone! I’d really love to try L’Artisan’s Traversee du Bosphore or any other Turkish Delight inspired fragrances! You can reach me at Jteets28 at the mail of g dot cawm. Thanks so much!

    • Sun Mi says:

      Hi Jessica! I have a small decant of Traversee du Bosphore that i can make you a sample from! I’ll email you!

  • Sun Mi says:

    Hi everyone! I am hoping to find samples of Costume National 21, DSH Au Lait – or anything else in the milky/creamy spectrum! Florals are triggering a lot of headaches and other sensitivities, so I’m trying to find some other genres that could satisfy the perfume cravings. 🙂 I’m happy to send samples in return!

    • Sun Mi says:

      ooops – my email is sunmisun in the gmail spectrum.

      • Portia says:

        Hey Sun Mi,
        I have some Costume National 21 that I can send you. Have you tried Premier Figuier by L`Artisan Parfumeur or Sushi Imperiale by Bois 1920? They might also be good choices. I can send you a pack.
        You have my email I think

    • LisaInDenver says:

      Hi Sun – I have some decanting supplies on the way to me now, and as soon as they arrive, I can get samples of DSH Au Lait and also Ava Luxe Milk to you! I’ll follow up on email 🙂

  • Sapphire says:

    Was wondering (fingers crossed) if you had the results of the Jo Malone Rare Teas drawing?

  • lauryndb says:

    Hello there, perfumistas! I know this is a long shot, but I am desperately, desperately searching for any amount of Ava Luxe Midnight Violet. I have not stopped kicking myself for missing an Ebay auction of a half bottle last year. I would gladly swap, pay or beg!

  • Rina says:

    Hi Everyone! Sorry I’ve been MIA, hope everyone is smelly and looking forward to summer! If anyone has a sample or decant of Alexander McQueen’s new frag, I have many samples and decants to trade. Heart’s desire? Let me know, I may have it. Thanks!!

  • civet says:

    Hi PFGs!!! I have just an insane number of unloved samples and decants stocked up. Anybody want to do a ~ml for ml blind sample/decant swap, say 25-30 ml?

    • Connie says:

      I’m up for it! Somehow I seem to have amassed a good bit of tested samples. I have mostly niche and indie, are you interested?
      Oh, email is constance (dot) beck-treadway (at) yale (dot) edu
