Im having a little trouble understanding how this is going to work. If I were to offer some samples, how would I decide who gets them? Do the interested parties pm me saying that they are interested, or do they publicly state that they are interested?

Either way works but if you do give to a person you need to post who is going to receive them.

In my experience, the best way to do it is to tell someone to do BOTH: leave a comment here to claim the giveaway and also PM you. If you ask them to PM you, you'll get a ton of PMs since nobody sees that the giveaway was claimed until you get around to commenting here. On the other hand, if you ask someone to comment here, you then have to keep an eye on this thread and get in touch with the winner. Asking someone to do both (comment below to claim, and then PM you with their name and address) makes it easier for you.

Don't forget to mention where you're willing to ship! Continental US only? EU only? That's important info.

Cheers!

Sillage Monster, welcome to Basenotes.



Another point to bring up is providing Feedback. It's not required, but it's a polite and thoughtful gesture to show appreciation to the person who sent you free stuff (in the case of this thread), or sold to/bought from you, in the Marketplace. It acknowledges that assembling a package requires time and money for mailing supplies, postage, decanting supplies and the actual fragrance and communication.



"Feedback" is an option located under a user's Profile and offers a place to say whether the transaction was a Positive experience and any extra words you'd like to say.



On a Giveaway thread like this, the transaction is typically considered a "trade", but there is also the opportunity to click on "Sale" or "Purchase" accordingly.



You'll be asked to provide a URL address that relates to the transaction. This address has to be from an original thread started by the other person. In the case of Marketplace purchase, this part is easy, because you just Cut & Paste the browser URL from the thread that originally advertised what you bought.



It gets tricky for a "Giveaway" thread like this, because you most likely won't be dealing with the thread's original poster. In this instance, you'll need to go into that person's Profile and C&P any URL address from a thread that they started (there's an option for "Threads Started" under each User Profile). If that person has never created a thread, you won't be able to leave them feedback. At least not that I'm aware of.



Have fun getting introduced to new stuff, don't jump at every opportunity, and remember to offer up unwanted smellies to the next lucky person. :smile:

To those members who won the batches I was offering, they've been sent today. I was ever so busy and there was then an issue with the postage. They should all be with you soon. Sorry for the delays!

I'm new here [and to fragrances in general] and would love to try any of the bottom three [L'instant de Guerlain, Dior Homme Intense, or Narcisco Rodriguez]. Not entirely sure if it's like a packaged deal or individual, but if only one, Dior Homme Intense sounds the most intriguing to me! Cheers, this is a great idea!

Joop! Nightflight EdT, 2.5 oz
L'Anarchiste de Caron, EdT 3.4 oz

hednic was kind enough to offer the perfume of my heart on the women's thread in a giveaway. It came today, Bal à Versaille PdT. Let me respond in kind. These two belong to my new hubby, who just joined Basenotes yesterday, but plans to lurk a while before doing any talking. He says to sell, trade, or give them away. Full bottles with boxes, missing only one or two sprays.

CONUS only. PM me or reply here. One per person. First come, first served.

I've been meaning to try L'Anarquiste...

Welcome, Mr ScentFan!

Juander,
Not for nothing, but between this thread AND the wpmen's giveaway thread, you take away much more than your share of giveaways and I don't recall you ever putting anything up for grabs. How about giving other people a chance?.

My apologies to the husband of scentfan. This isn't the usual behavior or spirit of this website but I had to get those things off my chest,

Blame me, guys. I don't know all the practices yet. Let me consult with a moderator and get back.

I thought there was a minimum post requirement to make claims, I didn;t think 6 made the cut.

In the 2+ years I have been lurking on this site (with a rather active buying and selling pm life going here) I haven't had any problems from a mod on this thread. Beyond this, the last time I claimed a sample was a couple months ago. I don't feel it goes with the spirit of the forum to make multiple posts calling out other users rather than talking to a mod directly.

Edit: In review of the thread and what PMs I have, I've claimed 5 samples - one in April 2013, one in October 2013, one in November of 2013, one in December 2013, and this bottle here in February 2014. Definitely more than a month between each one.

In the spirit of this thread, though, I will be acquiring some Hermes carded samples from the Hermes boutique nearby and putting them up soon. The point of this thread is to share fragrance with those who can't access or afford them, and this thread has helped me to smell things I would have never otherwise been able to. To all who have been kind on helping a newbie explore the world of fragrance, thank you - you have allowed me to experience joys I would have never accessed. This is why I love Basenotes.

No minimum post requirement but one takeaway per month is a rule. All taking and no giving is not in the spirit of this thread.

Thanks, stuigi. This discussion made me remember you claimed my Ineke sample set last month, juanderer. It was a fun exchange, but I'd like to give someone else a crack at this.

So, if you haven't claimed in the last month, and you've given away something on either the men's on the women's thread and would like:

L'Anarchiste de Caron, EdT 3.4 oz


PM me or post here.

CONUS (or if you've gotta have it and can tell me how to proceed and it doesn't cost a fortune, elsewhere too)

Re: Free Samples

I would be happy to receive them. If you want to break it up, I could just take half or so.
