I was writing my post as he submitted his, but that's fine. Truth is, I was feeling a bit guilty nabbing all those freebies when I still have literally hundreds of samples and untested bottles yet to try.

Of course, if he changes his mind, I'll still take 'em.

Ouch. I do feel bad that you were literally seconds away from it, but what can I do? Hey, if I come across any samples you're interested in trying, I wouldn't mind sending you something. But yes, there will be other opportunities. I kind of like the idea of doing a drawing of sorts for giveaways, so everyone interested has a chance instead of just the first person to see the post. I'm not sure if that is allowed here though.

Don't feel bad. If I were that anxious, I'd have posted a quick one-word "Me!" response. First come, first served is as legit an approach as any—and the one I've taken in the past for my giveaways—though one could of course construct an amusing contest or whatever. ("First person to PM me the next winning lottery numbers…") It's all good.

Nice to see more activity here and kudos to PrinceRF for being so generous.
I wonder if it would make sense to have threads for different locations? Like US, Europe, and so on. I rarely a have look here because stuff is usually CONUS, which I totally understand of course. Thinking about it, several threads might be a little much... hm... (sorta unfinished post, sorry, I‘m tired)

I think this would make more sense if giveaways were a far more common occurrence.

Lucky you GoldWine! I probably would have jumped on it if I saw it sooner. This line seems interesting... let us all know what you think when you try them. :thumbsup:

A huge shout out to PrinceRF for his generosity. I received my gargantuan sample drop from him earlier this week. It is providing me immense joy. Thanks again to all who make this section of BN possible. Truly the community at its best.

It came today, shoutout to the USPS for extremely quick shipping. It came basically brand new (I think unopened) and I immediately tried a dab of the Rose Anonyme on one wrist and the Orange Sanguine on the other. Both lovely.

My old third-hand 97 camry prematurely snapped it's timing belt on a ride to the grocery store on Saturday leaving me stranded waiting for a tow back home for 2 hours so that's been foremost on my mind but luckily it's a non-interference engine so there should be no damage to the engine and the replacement belt kit should be here tomorrow according to tracking. I'd normally throw on Fahrenheit when working on the car, naturally, but I think I'll try one of these samples. It might seem strange but I've always enjoyed the juxtaposition of wearing something really nice even when doing something drudging. It helps get me through it.

Thanks Hobbes, very generous of you and I'll enjoy wearing all of these I'm sure!

Yeah I feel really lucky! I'm getting together a first sample purchase so with that and the free bottle, maybe I'll have something to talk about here :)

Sorry I don't have a tracking number but your bottle is en route. I look forward to hearing your contributions about what you end up trying. :smiley:

UK only

A relative that is now unable to wear scent has handed a partial Penhaligon's sample/discovery set to me and I am putting it here for the first UK Basenoter to claim it. I am making no claims as to how old it is - I'll let readers decide for themselves.

Some scents are missing from it, but you do have splash samples of 1.5ml each of:
- Blenheim Bouquet
- Lilly of the Valley
- Lilly & Spice
- Malabah

Will send them out as one pack (using basic post) in the Penhaligon's-branded tin case they came in.

EDIT: now claimed.
