    Where to order samples online?

    I have noticed recently that it is very difficult to find a website in the UK that I can order samples from. Any ideas, or have I overlooked a site?

    Les Scenteurs are great for samples in the UK.

    Anyone ever bought from Freshalways on eBay? Seem to be fine based on feedback but always good to check.

    I'm going to chime in this thread and just add a couple of points about Les Senteurs. Now, I've not visited their store(s) but have ordered samples from them online before. My last experience will be my last for good.

    They are expensive and at times appear a bit rude in their email responses. My order got lost in the post and after a bit of faffing about, they sent out another bottle. Wasn't sure if that went missing as well, but they suggested that if it didn't show up, there was nothing they could do. Luckily it turned up but their last response got me thinking. I simply won't risk ordering from them again.

    I would instead suggest going to a place like First in Fragrance (based in Germany) for samples or full size bottles. Much more efficient and better customer services.

    I had a bottle disappear from Les Senteurs long ago. They did send out a new one but only Recorded Delivery. I pointed out RD only actually shows someone signed for it, it lost in the system they cannot actually trace it.

    I agree about the cost of their samples.

    Anyone? Alternatively can anyone suggest a eBay seller they have used without issue?

    The Perfumed Court is also a good place to try.

    Advantage is they sell a large variety, and a lot of different sample/fragrance sizes. Disadvantage is they ship from the US, so can be more costly than Les Senteurs for example. My experiences of LS have been largely positive.
