Our reader and commenter Barbara contacted me recently, because she would like to share some of her sample treasures with other perfume lovers.
“My package includes samples of Parfums de Nicolai (5 different perfumes), Serge Lutens (8 perfumes), Guerlain, L’Artisan, Hermes and a few carded samples of department store perfumes (Thierry Mugler, Chanel, Issey Miyake). Some are spray samples, others are small vials. There are about 30 samples in total. When I started getting into perfume, a couple of commenters here on Bois de Jasmin were kind enough to send me samples. Now, it’s my turn to share the perfume love.”
Barbara would like to send her samples to a perfume newbie, someone who has just started exploring fragrance, or anyone who has difficulty getting perfume samples for whatever reason. She’s ok to mail it anywhere in the world, but she notes that she won’t be responsible for loss or customs fees. If you might consider passing this package to another perfume lover, it would be great. Update: congratulations, Marika.
If you’re interested, please leave a comment telling us a little bit about yourself, how you became interested in fragrance, and what perfume you particularly want to sample. Also, please mention if you give me permission to contact you via the email address you use for commenting. Barbara will pick a person randomly, and I will put the two of you in touch.
Once Barbara contacts you, please communicate with her directly to make the necessary arrangements. In case the package gets lost, Barbara won’t be able to replace it or offer any shipping insurance. Bois de Jasmin is not responsible for the outcome of your exchange.
