    This week, I've purchased two selections of samples from

    1) Roullier White  http://www.roullierwhite.com/the-perfumery-274-c.asp and 

    2) Blooms Perfumery https://bloomperfume.co.uk/

     

    I just wanted to let you know that both firms were super-fast, efficient and courteous!

     

    I'd like to recommend both to all of you out there; between the two, you'll find a cracking selection of niche perfumes.

     

    I have NO vested interest in either company!!

    Thanks for your comments about these fairly new shops HDD8. I've noticed them come up when searching for niche stuff and will probably try one of them out some time soon. Great to, at last, see some shops with good stock of niche in UK that are offering sample services.

    Thanks for that - very useful to know and I'm sure others will come back to this post in future (I certainly will!).

    Fingers crossed!

    I have purchased from Roullier so far and they are fast and are now selling Slumberhouse - there are sample sets in the pipeline.

    And Les Senteurs also stock an interesting range.

    Yes, I agree that they have an excellent range, and I'll no doubt be trying them out in the future.

     

    They are a bit more expensive though.......

    Just going for balance ;)

     

    I might try to find some more soon, time permitting, but do agree that Roullier's service is impeccable, although I haven't tried bloomperfume yet.

    Damn, I might finally have to try the Slumberhouse line...

     

    Thanks for the heads up!

    Will second this....fabulous service from both. 

     

    Came across Bloom before they actually opened as I was shopping in All Saints and saw a woman stocking a perfume shop. Introduced myself and since that day have been amazed at how quickly everything is despatched. Not to mention when not being able to decide being giving samples and told to test them first. 

     

    Would have liked Roullier to tell me that Slumberhouse comes without a cap. 

     

    Have written to Slumberhouse offering to pay for a cap...but no response! 

     

    Have no vested interest in either shop but would sure like to see them continue being successful. Probably more so Bloom as I can get every Pierre Guilliame there!

    I've made one order from each of these:

    Roullier White - tiny dab vials like Luckyscent, but with biro-scrawled labels stuck on clumsily with sellotape. One requested sample was out of stock so they sent me something else I didn't want and charged me the same. 5/10. Will only use again if I can't get a sample elsewhere.

    Bloom - spray vials, smaller than ALZD but better volume than RW. Better presentation with professionally-printed labels. 9/10.

    Roullier are currently using rather smart black spray vials with printed labels.

    Looks very classy I have to say!

    And plastic too, rum - they ship fast & the number of brands being stocked is increasing nicely!

    Those are much better than the tiny plastic dab bottles I got - the perils of being an 'early adopter' I suppose. I'll put them back on the 'maybe' list.

    Ship very fast too - will have to remember to post the offer coupons :)

    Anyone with experience of RW able to tell me something regarding their sample service? I can't seem to be able to order them - for example, on going to the Maitre Parfumeur page, they only have full priced bottle there and no samples. does that mean they are out of stock or do I somehow choose the full price bottle then just state that I want a sample? I've emailed them and am awaiting a response but if anyone knows others, do let us know!

    I've just had a look at the MPG page. Maybe they've read your email and sorted it out now. When you click on the fragrance you are interested in then that one opens on its own page. Next to SIZE there is a drop down menu giving you option of 100ml or sample.
