Perfume Sample Fairy Godmother May

Esperanza the Perfume Fairy Godmother

It has been a while since we did this!  But let’s do Perfume Sample Fairy Godmother for May 2017.   First the general guidelines on how Fairy Godmother works – this post will be open until the end of May 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 may (this varies from based on lots of things) play Perfume Posse Fairy Godmother and go through the list and grant one or two perfume sample wishes. I’ll pick from ones that nobody has been able to help with and send them The Precious.   I’ll announce who those people are when I put up the next Fairy Godmother post.  Good luck!

    Dear PFG, I’m always looking for some Carolina Herrera, the original, for women. I miss it so much and people asking me what I was wearing. My other favorites are also discontinued, Violet Angel and Angel Lily, in the Garden of Stars series which are all beautiful. I’m in the US and my contact is

      Hi Anna Egeria P.:

      I have samples of the Violet Angel and Angel Lily – just sent you an email!

    Dear PFG, The community project over at NST has me craving for honey scents. The one I most fervently wish for is a small spray sample of Serge Lutens Miel de Bois. I would be happy to reciprocate. I’m in the U.S. Click on my name to get contact info. Thank you.

    Hello, I am looking to try Heart of Darkness by Providence or Rendeveouz by DSH, or Angelique Noir. I am in the US and I can be reached at marianna_r at yahoooo.
    Thank you

    Dear fairy godmother,

    I am looking for a little Comme des Garcons Ouarzazate – anyone? Happy to send something in return.

  • I’ve been out of the perfume world for more than a year, so i have a lot on my list, but these two are the ones I’d love to try.

    Hi all,
    I have a baggie of fun / unusual / niche samples to pass on – they’ve all been tried and some have more left than others, but I’d love to pass them on to an interested person. Just contact me at springpansy5 in the land of gmail.

  • Connie says:

    Oh I’m so glad these are back! Will keep an eye out and see if I can grant any wishes.
    For myself, I would love the chance to try some Zoologist Nightingale or Salome from Papillon Perfumes <3
    (Today is my last day of undergraduate classes ever)

  • Koyel says:

    Yay! Glad this is coming back, at least from time to time. I haven’t yet seen any requests for things I have, but I would looooove to try some NVC Rahele. Happy to pay back the favor with samples/decants of my bottles 🙂

    • Koyel says:

      Oof, of course I forgot a couple essentials: I am in ConUS and can send to the same. Email me at ko bhatta at jeemayle dot cawm. Thanks!

    • quixoticcynic says:

      I have a luckyscent 1ml dabber I’ve tried once, so it still has a fair amount left–emailing you now 🙂

  • Sylvia says:

    Hi all. Gorgeous day out there, isn’t it!?! ?
    I loved the original Lauren by Ralph Lauren, back in the day. What’s in production right now just doesn’t work for me.
    I read that Hermes Amazone or Hermes Rose Amazone were something to try – as a kind of ‘in the same family’ replacement.
    I’d love to try either one –
    Or have some of your suggestions for something to try that’s close to the Original Lauren.
    I’ll check back and see if there’s someone I can gift something ?.

    There is one perfume I have searched for tirelessly and never been able to find a sample of…L’Artisan Parfumeur ‘Fleur D’Oranger’, either the 2007 or 2011 version. I know I’ll never find a bottle, but I’d love to smell it just once.

  • otamom says:

    YAY! I LOVE sharing the perfume love! 🙂 I have participated in this page for the past few months and am active on FFFs as ‘Julie BP’. I live in the middle of nowhere so I have to purchase my samples over the internet then swap through the site for others I want. When I receive a sample, I catalogue it, review, and pass on. I have held 4 RAOKs on FFFs in 2017 already and am gearing up for a 5th. Let’s do this! 🙂 On my wish list I have Solstice Scents “Cherry Cordial” and “Maplewood Inn”. Also DSH “Winter White”, “Lift Off”, “Verveine”, Indus”, “Little Smile”, and any from the gourmand line. I also have a few samples and partial bottles that I will send to whomever requests those scents. Thanks and best wishes everyone!

  • masha7 says:

    I’d love to try a sample or samples of anything by Aedes. I’ve got lots of interesting samples to send, also, so I’ll keep checking in here to see if I can also be a fairy godmother!

    • Lisa D says:

      Hi Masha7: I’ve got the original Aedes (in the L’Artisan bottle), and would be happy to send you some. Email me at lisadarty in the land of h o t m a i l.

  • fanny says:

    How lovely!!
    At the moment I cannot think of anything, but I’ll check every now and then to see if I can send anybody something. 🙂
