Hi all, I stumbled across this website while chasing after information on different perfumes, and I'm very glad I did - it's brilliant! I love trying new fragrances, and I've often thought how much fun it would be to mix and test new scents, but wasn't sure how to go about it. Being a total newbie, I'd really appreciate any information on anything related to sampling: where do you get your samples from, mixing, what do you mix with - the lot. Thanks in advance!
I began by purchasing samples from websites such as scentedmonkey and beautyencounter. But then that parfumsraffy site offered 50 unspecified samples for $50. So that was big. Then i met people online to decanted samples and sold them. And then there were samples other fragrance devotees sent me for free. And free samples in perfume stores. I spent about $900 on samples. Fun testing, but I must be very finicky because it led to very few purchases.
