  1. Sophi-- Don't send your samples to Alicka-- she has her own set, and so do kewart and the others. Yours are for you to keep.

    Hi 30 Roses! The wedding's Friday the 19th, but the subject came up earlier (since pomander mentioned she'd be in New Orleans next week) so I just went with it, lol - the abundant goodwill of BNers just won't be suppressed! We're flying down tomorrow, but I'll probably be checking things out around here right up until Thursday, when things might start getting crazy.

    Thanks again for the heart-warming good wishes! Just so you know, I'm considering all of you my honorary bridesmaids, and you won't even have to don a hideous dress! XOXOXO

    I just wanted to tell you that you are organizing wonderful opportunities for people to try different perfumes. Thanks so much for doing it! It is so special. I am admired and very grateful for the three (which became four) discontinued scents opportunity. Someone overbid me on Arpege Extrait, but I will keep on trying

    Thanks, and have a great day!

    30 Roses!
    Thank you for the welcome! I just found it today. It's taking me awhile to learn my way around BN.
    Again, good luck with your mother. My mom lives in another state, and my sister lives closer, so I do a lot of phone communication. That is also tough. Wish I lived closer.

Sampling Groups Part 2: How to Pack Samples to Avoid Mishaps

by 30 Roses on 2nd June 2011 at 09:56 PM
Basically there are two things to prevent: leaks and breakage.

Leak prevention:

1. Leave a bit of head space when decanting!
Liquids expand in the lower atmospheric pressure of the airplane hold, so don't fill the vial or atomizer completely, or the perfume will be forced out when it expands.

2. Tape the caps on afterward.
The idea is to keep the cap in place so the sprayer doesn't discharge by accident. Bandage tape leaves

How to Start a Sampling Group for Perfumes

by 30 Roses on 31st May 2011 at 07:28 PM
In our desire to experience more perfumes without going broke in the process, many of us eventually buy or swap samples. But the cost of buying also adds up fast, and swapping requires that you have something the other person wants! Additionally, not everyone lives where they can test the fragrances at a store counter.

There is another alternative, and that is a sampling group, which has these advantages:

1. Each member only spends a little money to mail the package

Another Day to Walk and Sniff in NYC

by 30 Roses on 2nd May 2011 at 01:56 PM
Saturday, April 30th was a "perfect storm"-- glorious weather, the 2011 Guerlain Muguet released, and the Sniffapalooza event, with vendors prepared. We did not join the Sniffa group but did our own thing.

My husband, teenaged daughter and I took an early train into NYC Saturday with an itinerary in hand that enabled us to visit a number of stores on foot before they closed at 6 or 7 p.m.

We started at Saks. I made a beeline for Guerlain, eager to test

NYC: A Visit to Aedes de Venustas, Bigelow and Enfleurage

by 30 Roses on 21st August 2010 at 09:12 AM
We had a nice trip to NYC yesterday; my daughter wanted to see Madame Tussaud's (Wax Museum). The museum is very relaxed-- visitors are allowed to touch, and pose for photos with, the life size figures. This is worth bringing children to. (Who knew that Napolean was so short?)

From there we took the subway to 4th St. and walked a couple of blocks to Aedes de Venustas at 9 Christopher Street, which is conveniently open until 8. We had visited Aedes a year ago and had a good idea

A Day of Sniffing in Boston

by 30 Roses on 1st August 2010 at 03:45 PM
Yesterday my daughter wanted to explore the Harvard campus, so off we went. It's my husband's vacation and the weather was perfect-- breezy and low humidity.

Since we were in Cambridge anyway, we stopped in at Colonial Drug. This is not a pharmacy, but rather a shop specializing in hard to find and European brands of perfumes, toiletries, and high quality brushes and combs. They have testers. They do not take credit cards but they do invoice and ship. (See their website for
