Vermeil, aka Vermeil pour Homme CLAIMED by @banusist

I have the Guépard original, which smells exactly the same as this, and I don’t need two. $25+ on eBay, or free from me: you do the math.

You are upping your game indeed. I've been curious about Vermeil for awhile, as it's been well received here. The Les Copains is also intriguing since I know nothing about it. Do you ship to Canada?

Alas, shipping to Canada triples my postage—and before you offer to cover it, at that price you may as well find it closer to home with the shipping cheap or included. Also, I had an expensive bottle I shipped to a BNer in Canada seized by customs, and that soured me on sending items to my good friends to the north. Hence my CONUS restriction.

Regarding Les Copains Homme, it’s often compared to Yatagan, which is precisely what doesn’t work for me, but should make someone else happy.

That's all very reasonable. I've always been lucky with customs, but I know that's not always the case. I declare it under the broader term, "cosmetics" because they tend to frown upon the shipment of flammables.

Yes, I can call it “cosmetics” or “glass collectibles” with a value under $20 and hope for the best. I just hope we can get back to a more reasonable trade and border policy soon: it didn’t use to be so restrictive or expensive, and it needn’t be now.

Just wanted to give a big thumbs up to @PStoller for sharing such cool goodies. I am doing everything in my power to resist partaking given my fragrance balance for the year, but it's amazing to see such interesting stuff offered up.

(Also glad someone spoke up for the Les Copains Homme before my resolve weakens! Someone else should jump on the ridiculous Vermeil zippo bottle and save me from myself.)

That’s the one! The sprayer was broken and I had to decant the entire bottle….
(Let me know if you’d like one of the decants! )
(I edited my listing to add the “Fendi”)

Updated 11/2022 with Giveaway Guidelines:
  • Please do not claim more than one freebie per month, though it's up to the giver to decide if they want to offer additional freebies to the same member.
  • Please do not request fragrances.
  • Please state any postage restrictions, such as US only, will ship worldwide, and so on.
  • Givers may set additional conditions for their giveaways and should make any additions clear and fair.
  • Giveaways are generally on a first-come basis, taking into account any other conditions imposed by the giver.
  • All responses to giveaways should be public in the thread before any PM followup, so there is no question as to who responded first.


I noticed there was no "General" Free to a Good Home thread. Now there is!

I have a bunch of samples, minis, and decants I'd like to give away for the holiday season.

Some are masculine, some are feminine, lots are unisex, and several are vintage. There is a ton of stylistic variety. There are probably about 50 or so items in the bag. A random representative sample includes: Chanel No. 19 EDP, MFK Oud Silk Mood, Geoffrey Beene Bowling Green, Montale Oud Cuir d'Arabie, Tom Ford Sahara Noir, Vermeil Pour Homme, D'Orsay Arome 3, Zoologist Hyrax

I would just ask whomever takes the sample pack truly loves to sample and has a broad sampling appetite...if that's you, you're the most likely to enjoy! Please message here first and then PM me. Thanks!

Hoping to see more giveaways here!
Aww mannn - guess I snoozed and losed . Snost and lost. I’ve been dying to try alll of these!

What's that with the 6-month mark? You have to have been a member for at least 6 months? I'd love the Tai Winds from Avon but I live in continental Europe... It seems I joined BN in June '22. What's possible for me?
The “6-month” rule — That was a (somewhat) random criteria on my give-away (Theorema), it doesn’t apply (as far as I know) to the item you are mentioning.
Your location, though — every give-away is from an individual, just keep an eye out for a future give-away from someone who is based in Europe or willing to ship internationally. Bon chance!

Ok, thank you for your clear and sensible answers to my questions. I'll keep my eyes peeled.

PM me with your preference and your mailing address, and it shall be yours.
So sorry my friend… I have been away from basnotes for a while. I’m a longtime member here but took some time off from the hobby. I tried to send you a message, my first since returning, and it says I have exceeded my 600 messages. Is this some new regulation? Do I need to pay for an upgraded membership? Please advise

If you purchase a subscription of BN Plus you will get a lot more message space.

I have this banged up bottle of CDG 2. I don't know exactly how full it is but it feels pretty full! The sprayer doesn't work and i tried getting one of those bottles that you fill with the sprayer stem to throw in (I've decided in my adventures trying to spray it that i don't want it anyway), but it doesn't work. So you'll just have to pull the top off with pliers or something and put it in another bottle. But it is FREE and I'll cover shipping as well. continental US only!
