That’s a nice one! I have plenty of it (and plenty else), but congrats in advance to the lucky recipient, and kudos to the Prince for his generosity.

Hello! I would be interested in this if still available. PM'd!

This is good stuff. I enjoy my bottle......you're not a fan?

I do enjoy this scent, and I respect it for what it is. As one who prefers to maintain a minimalist wardrobe, I've been analyzing what I have and anything that I have any doubts or concerns about whatsoever, I've basically given the axe. Or if I can find a better replacement to what I already have.

In the case of Terre d'Hermes, the performance does not meet my standard. Either that or I go nose blind to some of the notes rather quickly. It might be the Iso E Super; I don't know. Another way that I evaluate is by asking myself "would I be happy wearing this fragrance for a whole week straight?" It's really an interesting thing to consider, although there are certain niches in a wardrobe that I can understand having where this wouldn't apply.

Fortunately, I have a bottle of Green Irish Tweed coming in the mail from a swap, which will replace the niche that Terre filled (any season, any reason, fresh/clean, versatile, etc.). Hopefully that one works out as well as I remember. :smiley: I'm happy to pass something like this along to someone who may enjoy it more than me, and I'm unlike most Basenoters in that I couldn't see myself with dozens and dozens of bottles (the thought gives me anxiety), but more on that later.

Hey everyone! I'm back and wanted to say a couple of things. Please read my entire post before commenting.

No one from London wanted to claim the freebies in the post above yet?

A while back I had a problem with shipping a couple small samples and a decant. For those of you like me who want to cheap out and mail decants in a *regular envelope*, be careful. Apparently the package arrived destroyed and the recipient had informed me that USPS puts envelopes THROUGH A MACHINE THAT CRUSHES THEM FLAT as standard processing. I was shocked to learn this and had never had a problem like this in the past. Fortunately, my giveaway was free so there was no loss on the recipient's end. I guess the lesson is to not try to cheap out so much on shipping and if you have a large enough decant (in my case it was just 5ml), just get a padded mailer or a small box. So... oh well.

Anyways, since joining this community I've had quite a large number of fragrance samples come and go, either from giveaways or swaps. It's always fun to get a quick whiff or a full wear of something new. I had quite a few more samples come in lately and after working through a large portion of them in a short amount of time (I have a tendency to binge for a couple hours just spraying away on test strips jubilantly...) I've separated out some that I would like to give away to a member of the community for free. I have the following samples available for someone to claim, as I am either not interested in holding on to them or I did not care for them. Here is a fine collection of mostly niche perfumes that could be a joy for one of you to explore or collect. I will not be separating these out - I prefer to send them as a lot to one individual. CONUS only; please do not message me if you reside outside of CONUS! All I ask is that you be willing to reimburse me the cost of shipping either by Venmo or PayPal. I will invoice you the cost after they have shipped. If you have previously claimed a FREEBIE from me, you are INELIGIBLE to claim this. Please "quote" some part of my message and make your intent to claim it clear so that others can see it is taken.

Lastly, I'd love to see more activity in this thread. If you have even a sample or two that you don't care for, I know that someone in this community would appreciate it. Here is a list of the samples that I have available:

Wow! Someone is going to have a good day! Nice giveaway. I'd jump on it, but have way too many samples in queue already.

You have inspired me to prune my samples.

I don’t think I’ve traded anything with you. Willing and able to pay shipping.
