April Perfume Sample Fairy Godmother

Esperanza the Perfume Fairy Godmother



Hey, it is time again for the Perfume Sample Fairy Godmother for April  2015.     So here’s how Fairy Godmother works – this post will be open for the entire month of April  2015.   I’ll start a new one at the beginning of May 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 for me.  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’ll sometimes play Perfume Posse Fairy Godmother and go through the list and grant some 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.

So what is it that your heart desires?  (pulling out wand from the back of the closet and blowing off an inch of dust)

    Hello fairies,

    I’m new to the site, but love the concept and hope to be able to return the favour soon! I’d love to try Chanel’s Coromandel or Cristalle, Teo Cabanel’s Alahine or Lace Garden, Vero Profumo’s Mito Extrait de Parfum, Ann Gerrard’s Cuir Nacre, Guerlain’s Spiriteuse Double Vanille, Naomi Goodsir’s Or Du Serail, Roja Dove’s Diaghilev, Nuwa, or Amber Extrait. If any generous soul could help me out I’d be most grateful! Happy to receive any recommendations, too!!

    I’m in Canada but can receive mail in the U.S. as well, and you can reach me at leila(dot)johnston at geemail

    Thanks so much!

  • Cecilia says:

    Thank you so much Matildaben! I received the Penhaligon samples!! You truly made my day. I opened up the package as excited as a child at Christmas. The fragrances are beautiful; I’m wearing the lily of the valley now. Thanks again!!!

  • sfsassy Jen says:

    Contact me at Jen at Tonapi dot com

  • Julie L says:

    Congratulations! First off, do you like big girly florals? Spicy notes like those found in orientals? Or do you lean to the soft, clean and fresh type scents? I might gave a few ideas to send your way if I had a little better direction…I’m terrible with directions , lol. Ill check back tomorrow to see if you’ve posted. 🙂

    • Holli says:

      Burberry brit not london. That’s the scent I’m after a lotion and soap.

      • Julie L says:

        Ok then! I’m glad you’ve settled on something ! But sorry to say, I don’t have any of that one to send you….

  • Holli says:

    I just got married march 28th and I’m hoping to find a perfume that my husband will love. An all around scent good for day or evening. I’m really needing a variety of samples to present to him so I can get a full size of a scent that drives him crazy. Thats really all I yearn for. I have worn 5th avenue for years but my chemistry has changed I guess bc he used to love it on me but now when he is kiss-close to me he says I smell soapy. Romance kill lol. So this new bride is desperate to find something quick. My bday is at the end of this month if anyone has bday specials lol. Thanks so much#!

    • Holli – first off, congratulations! You didn’t include your email details. I would be happy to send you a few samples of scents that I personally feel are “romance worthy”. Or contact me at terimwal at aol dawt cawm.

      • Holli says:

        Oh yay thank you so much!! I must be losing my mind I thought I wasn’t supposed to post my email. Its hollipsalms91 at hotmail dawtcohm. Any of y’all can written into regards to this request 🙂
        I’ll email you now 🙂

      • Holli says:

        Well it looks like my husband decided he wants me wearing Burberry London. I think its a delicious scent so Its a win win. Now to find awesome deals on it bc they do not make a London version of any body lotion or oil so I can layer the scent on me.

  • matildaben says:

    Is anyone interested in Penhaligon’s? I have a sampler to give away, mostly florals, US shipping only. Please email me at matildaben at the geeee mail.

  • Forgot my contact info: terimwal at aol dawt cawm.

  • I would love to try Baruti Melkmeisje if some lovely person out there would like to share a wee bit. I’m also pining to try a discontinued Comme Des Garcons Series 2: Redwood.

    Also, I am being overrun by perfume samples and would be happy to share some. Examples: Illuminum, Esther P, Atelier, Black Phoenix Alchemy Lab, DSH Perfumes, Montale and many others.

  • FeralJasmine says:

    I would love a tip from you folks. I will be in Denver soon and might have an afternoon to shop. Where can I find perfumes? There is very little in my home town, so even department stores that have a good selection would be of interest.

  • leathermountain says:

    My dear fairies,
    I would like to sample the new Minya scent, Eau de Hongrie. I do wish I had thought of this in time for Passover, what with the obligatory glasses of wine and all — and why not Tokaj? — but I would happily raise a glass for this any day of the year.


    Ever gratefully,

    PS- alederberg at that postal place that’s G

  • Winterlude says:

    I have just started down this road and having nothing to swap in return, but if anyone has samples of ANYTHING they would like to share I would be overjoyed! I’m eagerly awaiting part 2 of the Classic and Niche Sampler from Surrender to Chance. I’m hoping it comes today!, it contains Misouko, and after reading about it on this blog and others, I can’t wait to try it.
    Thanks in advance for anything that might come my way. winterflute at the gee male dot com

        Thank you Ashley, you have disguised your e-mail too well and it bounced back all the ways I tried it. 🙁

  • J. Tong says:

    Hi everyone!

    With spring approaching, my nose has taken a new interest in simple classics. I’ve been LOVING Caron Pour Un Homme lately, and I can’t get enough of Prada Infusion d’iris.

    I would love to sniff BodyTime’s China Rain and maybe explore more of Prada’s Infusions, if anyone has a few drops to spare?

    I’m in Canada and would be happy to send along samples of something in exchange, or if your weakness is chocolate, I can put together a chocolate care package for your trouble.

    I’m: snarkyshiba in the land of gmail.com

    Thank you!

  • katrin says:

    Hi Fairies, I am wondering if I might like gardenia. I am curious about Cruel Gardenia or Chanel’s Gardenia. I can be reached at

  • Neva says:

    Hi dear fairies, is any of you willing to help with scents by Parfumerie Generale? I’d like to try most of all Bois Naufrage, but anything will do to satisfy my curiosity for this perfume house. I’m in Europe and can be reached in the yay-hoo land at modestyblaise65. Thank you in advance!

  • Becky says:

    Hey, lovely fairies!

    I am still hoping someone can find a bit of Teo Cabanel Alahine to send my way. Failing that, perhaps a wee nip of PdN Fig Tea?

    I hope everyone is enjoying some nice weather! Spring seems to have finally sprung in my neck of the woods.

  • ladyisla says:

    I’m very new here but I’m hoping to find some one to give a few samples to and perhaps to find a sample of Viktor & Rolf BonBon, Lolita Lempicka Sweet, or anything by Il Profumo.

  • Cecilia says:

    Dear lovely fairies,
    Does anyone have any samples of Chanel Cristalle in any formulation? I’m in the US and can be reached at Ceci2you at gee mail. Thank you. 🙂

  • Lisa D says:

    Hi fairies! I’m wishing for a sample of Korrigan, by Lubin, or Tuscan Scent Incense Suede, by Ferragamo. I should really stop reading Luca Turin’s reviews……..

    I can be reached at lisadarty in the land of hot mayel. Would be happy to send some samples in return!

  • Vanie says:

    Oh dear fairies! If one of you could grant me on of those wishes, I would be most grateful!
    My first wish is for Azemour Les Orangers, and my second is for some Tom Ford Fleur de Chine, which both sounds beautiful.

    Generous fairies can reach me in the land of gmail under the name vanessa dot b dot laperriere

  • Hello, dear Fairies! I am really wanting a sample of Bogue Maai. I had ordered a sample from Luckyscent, but I think my package got lost in the mail (I really should have gotten tracking). If nobody has it, I’m also really interested in anything from Slumberhouse except Pear & Olive (that one I’ve tried), especially Sadanne or Kiste.

    You can contact me at countsjc at the gee mail.

  • Eloquaint says:

    I would love to try Vanilia, by L’Artisan Perfumeur, La Myrrhe, by Serge Lutens, and/or anything at all by Parfums de Nicolai.

  • KVA says:

  • Pixel says:

    Happy almost-April to all! As usual I’ve been diligently plowing thru my Mount Sample, so I have quite a few that need new homes. I’ve got 3 grab-bags of 8-10 samples available, mostly niche and high end. Email is emc dawt 7 1 1 7 in the land of gggmail; let me know what sorts of scents you like best. Btw I have several, umm, intense (was gonna say stinker) samples available, do let me know if you’re interested; I wouldn’t want to dump those on the unwary ;^)

  • Peppermoon says:

    I pretty much have every Amouage on my to-try list, so if anyone has samples from that house to share, I’d be ecstatic. (I have already tried Gold Woman and Beloved though, so not those). And as always, if anyone has any orange blossom scents they don’t want, I’m your girl! Thank you so much, you beautiful fairies. 🙂 You can reach me at smith rachel 680 (at) yahoo (dot) com.

    • Connie says:

      I can help you out with both!

    (I am in Sweden, and you can reach me at e_carlberg at email dot com.)

  • Ashley A says:

    I’d love to try Equistrius by Parfum D’Empire or, if anyone has a smidge to spare, the Guerlain Meteorites.

  • Julie L says:

    Good morning fairies!! I’m still in that old school state of mind and would just adore trying Must, by Cartier; Fendi, Fendi; or other oldies like those that might be sitting around gathering dust! I have goodies to send in return ! I may be reached at Jullease at yawhoooo

  • Connie says:

    I would love to true Wit by Parfums DelRae or anything from Ava Luxe. Thank you lovely fairies!

  • Jane Bentley says:

    I forgot to say that you can reach me as janebkrn at that gee mail address.

  • Jane Bentley says:

    I’m really wanting to try some indie brands as well as any The Different Company or Atelier that have been made in the last year.I love almost anything by Jean Claude Elena or Olivia Giocobetti….almost transparent, light, feminine. My favorite notes are florals OTHER THAN skanky jasmine, tuberose, or orange blossom. Also I like benzoin, white musk, ladanum and chypres. I cannot be specific about all my samples, but I’d love to give away “grab bags” of high-end samples that I have accumulated.
