Re: Geo F. Trumper---Free samples, *class act.

Lutens, Floris and Hermes all said that they would send me samples.. Haven't received anything yet, but it's only been a week.

Hermes sent me some. Their message mechanism is primitive and you get a form reply. But... low and behold, they sent samples after a couple of weeks. I was surprised, as the Hermes boutique in NYC is not far from me. You'd figure they would have just sent me a polite invitation to their store. Instead a nice padded envelope arrived with samples from the Hermessence line, with a return address on 59th street in Manhattan. Again, they didn't really need to send me samples, but they did anyway. I wrote back and thanked them heartily, upon which i did get a personal response. They were quite pleasant! Nobody else I've written to has been as forthcoming. I think the age of free samples is just about over.

That's very nice that they did that, and the exclusive line no less. Congrats!

Hi gooddeal123 - there are some suggestions in this thread - just check out the websites mentioned, or others that interest you, then send an email.
I've never tried, but some appear to have success.

That's what I did, went to the post by Nosebud and went to each site and requested some (under contact us.) I have had several positive responses so far and only took about 10 minutes! :)

Re: Geo F. Trumper---Free samples, *class act.

Not really free as you need to buy something but LuckyScent will include 7 2ml samples of the Tom ford private blends on top of the four free samples of any fragrances they sell if you purchase any tom ford product over 200 dollars. Just add the samples to your cart, include the four samples you want and they'll send 7 half filled 4ml Tom ford vials, nicely packaged.

I personally have never heard of anyone successfully receiving sample requests, but I'm not sure. It seems that you basically have to take what they include with the purchase.

FragranceNet sells a lot of samples. Many are rather cheap. Just pop a few in your cart before you check out a bottle. Otherwise, I guess if you're preparing a rather large order, it might be prudent to call it in and maybe the sales assistant could throw in some additional samples. But samples without a purchase? You can absolutely forget about that ever happening with a discount seller like this.

I've spent over a $100 on samples bought from eBay over the last couple of years. I dont really buy anymore :huh:

I've read the previous posts on Serge Lutens, I havent had a chance to check those out personally but I'm interested In Five O'Clock Au Gingembre, Un Boise Vanille, someone mentioned they dont ship to the United States, so am I out of luck? I can write a polite and respectful message but how would I ask THEM specifically? Where can I find Lutens in person to check out?

Would Chanel & Versace be accommodating? I would like to sample Egoiste/ Platinum Egoiste (dont really know what the difference is) and Versace's Eros & Dreamer. I've been lucky with blind buys but I don't have the luxury to spend on something I don't like. Any help is much appreciated :thumbsup:

Doubt it, unless you were about to make a huge order and called ahead like the other poster suggested. And they don't really send samples in every order... 'Exceptional... because you are' doesn't count lol.

Have to share this story which happened just over an hour ago. I went to the Saks in my area specifically with the purpose of seeking out the Cartier representative to find out if he had any concrete information or if he knew anything more about the remaining three Heures de Cartier fragrances rumored to be coming out in 2014 to finish the line of 13 fragrances. Now I already have every Heure in the line and about two months ago I purchased another complete set of 10 for one of my daughters who also loved the line. At the time of that most recent purchase, the Cartier representative, a very nice Greek gentleman who had worked for Cartier for 30 years showered me with about 52 large samples of all the mens Cartier fragrances he had on hand. So, today I was lucky to find him again, and inquired about the future releases. He recognized me immediately and told me that he didn't know anything firm but that he would contact his head office on Monday and get back to me with any news and would surely reserve the three for me and call me when they came in. Now here's the good part, I thanked him and as I was taking my leave, he called me back, took out a red piece of luggage from under the counter, and said, "Let me see what samples I have that I can give you." He then said, "I know you already have these but, what the hell." He proceeded to give me 2 4ml samples of each Heures de Cartier (a total of 20 vials plus a sealed 12.5ml (almost a half ounce) of Declaration D'Un Soir. I was flabbergasted. I only went into Saks to inquire about future releases and left with a boatload of free samples without even having purchased anything. Now that's wonderful customer service!

Quite nice of him. Although I would say that if I had you for a customer, I'd shower you with samples every time I saw you as well :).

I haven't read through all of the previous posts, but I've spent over $200 in samples over the past couple months. Here are some freebies/semi-free ones I got.

Sephora - I've asked for tons of free samples from them on different visits and at different stores. Saved me tons of money.
Nordstrom - Same thing.
Min NY (online) - I've ordered a few samples from them. The first time I just ordered one sample and my box was crammed full of about 10-15 more free samples including Mancera, Amouage and others. The second time I ordered three and they included 3-4 more free samples including Amouage fragrances.
Bond No 9 - I called their company since I can't test their products in Puerto Rico where I currently live and they charge a ton of money for shipping to PR. They sent me the three samples I wanted to try for free. Not sure if they do that for everyone or if was only because I live here.

Good luck all!

If buying just a few samples from MiN nets you far more as a bonus, I may give it a go... of course, it's a random chance thing on which ones you get... unless inquiring about certain brands might steer them towards your preferences. ;)

Hermes was generous indeed. I really didn't expect to get these long mini test tube like 4ml vials. Quite nice of them.
