First things first – the two wishes I’m granting from November – Darryl (Knize Ten, Chanel Cuir de Russie, Hermes Bel Ami, and Eau d’Hermes) and Natalie (Patou-Joy, Chanel 5, Chanel 19, Guerlain Mitsoku & Shalimar) . 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 January 2016. First the general guidelines on how Fairy Godmother works – this post will be open for the entire month of January/ I’ll start a new one at the beginning of February 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 January’s post. Good luck!
