Also got a parcel from Lalique. I requested samples from their men's section and their exclusive section and was not disappointed. Just email their contact us link from their website. IMG_20171102_135914.jpg

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

Just had a notification from Geo F. Trumper that they're sending me a sample of the new EdP Eucris. As is often the case, a polite request for a local supplier combined with a plaintive lament that i suspected their nearest stockist was actually 300 miles away (true) proved effective.

I contacted Aesop and they were very gracious in their response, AND they are sending me three fragrance samples gratis.

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

I know this is kind of an old thread, but here goes... I suffer from SEVERE MIGRAINE HEADACHES. Just a small whiff of certain colognes/perfumes will IMMEDIATELY send me into a tailspin & put me in bed the rest of the day hugging a small trash can.

Oddly enough this isn't enough to put me off the hobby of frangrace collecting entirely. I guess I'm a glutton for punishment [emoji19]. Anyways, I haven't had a lot of luck going to places like Sephora, or major Department stores to get samples of quality colognes.

I need to be able to dilute a very small spritz of it in a large bowl of warm water initially, to see if it affects me negatively. It's generally the "flowery smelling" & "sweet smelling" colognes that are the worst offenders. I have no idea what components of these fragrances make me so deathly ill, but I just know they do.

Any idea where I can get very small samples from good design houses, just so I can see what I can & can't wear? FYI: I don't need Tom Ford or Creed b/c I can't afford those anyway.

Annick Goutal
Mark Birley

that list its not mine, i copied it from a fellow poster on another forum

Just a little update.

I have emailed almost every company on this list and will update it as I get responses. It seems like a lot of companies are only pushing "buy and return" tactics and mention "a free sample if you buy something". A lot of these companies seem very frugal and almost offended I am even asking through a very well written email.

My take away from this so far have been:
Buy it or don't, we don't care.
We are out of samples, but if you buy something we can magically conjure some up.
Buy our sampler sets for a staggering price plus shipping

So far:

Lalique - Extremely nice representatives and they are shipping out samples. Impressive customer service and kind reps.
Aesop - Yes and very pleasant to speak too however they have "discontinued most fragrance samples" and are hesitant to give any out.
Maison Goutal - Extremely nice people to speak too

Yes but at a cost:
Trumpers - Very quick response but laughable. They only sell the sets now and it's 71 dollars US after shipping.
Czeche&Speake - 1ml samples for 3 dollars a piece, free US shipping
Escentric Molecules - 25 pounds or 35 dollars plus international shipping
Atelier - $35/30€ plus shipping
Parfums De Marly

Xerjoff - Extremely rude representatives, I was shocked at they way they spoke to me.
Paco Rabanne
Bulgari - No, and extremely rude chat reps
Hugo Boss
Byredo - They play the we don't have samples, unless you buy something game.
Creed - They are conveniently out of samples and scents. I find this hard to believe.
Dolce & Gabbana
John Varvatos
Serge Lutens - Very rude customer service reps. Very pretentious.
Acqua di Parma
Carolina Herrera
Moschino - Very rude reps as well.

Thank you to Lalique. I tried their newest release, Lalique White in Black, and yes, they sent me a 3ml sample for free. I emailed them a nice email and received a nice response and sample.

But remember, it's Lalique; still wonderful and still making long lasting and projective scents at reasonable prices.

Thank you Lalique.
