I could provide a good home for those!
Kenzo Amour maybe? Could be a bit sweeter than you are looking for but I find it cozy and comforting.
My samples claimed by LINBUR0100
Looking for a new home for these samples. Take them all as I'm not shipping them all over. And USA only.

Parfumerie Generale Cuir d'Iris
I am another one who is not yet on the Shalimar bandwagon. I absolutely detest the first 30 minutes -- all I get is lemon powder pee. But the dry down is a pleasant vanilla/amber/powder. I have...
Mona di Orio Vanille
Le Labo Vanilla 44
FM Musc Ravageur
28 La Pausa(first 20 minutes are wonderful, but then I can barely detect it)
Parfumerie Generale Cuir d'Iris.Leather meets iris. Newly obsessed with this.
Chanel Bois des Iles parfum from loving hubby.
I try to avoid those little samples and try to get ones with spray applicators. When I have them, I do like hednic and turn it over on my wrist and touch that wrist to my other wrist and chest.
Alien Essence Absolue - creamy floral vanilla, great for the cooler weather.
I'd like 20 mL of Mona di Orio Vanille. PM sent as well.
Ormonde Jayne Champaca
Softly sweetened floral with a light pleasant spice and tea note. This is unchallenging, comforting and appropriate for many social events and work. Cozy and comforting...
TF Tobacco Vanille is on my to test list, thanks for your thoughts on that one, teardrop!
I'm also in the Vanille mood and tested Mona di Orio Vanille this morning. Wow! I was pleasantly...
A light month so far for me, just Bottega Veneta EDP 100 ml.
But not staying light for long -- off to Italy next week, and Alfarom has steered me to some must smell shopping.
Started the day in a sample of Elixir des Merveilles -- it's on my wish list officially now.
I need to shower, then I'll sync in more Hermes -- Jardin sur le Nil.
I've been MIA for a while -- work and home life got chaotic, but I'm settling in again.
I bought a split of MDCI Chypre Palatin from Kron on the splits board. I am starry eyed...

I bought Le Temps d'Une Fête by Parfums de Nicolaï today.
Earlier this month I was influenced enough by positive reviews to blind buy a Habanita tester from eBay. Just call me a lemming...
24, Faubourg today for me. Enjoying my birthday with my family, and NOT feeling my age.
I vote for Musc Ravageur, and it's the only scent from this house I own. I despise Carnal Flower, sorry. Tuberose in general is not usually a favorite for me, and Carnal Flower has the heaviest...
Also Dawn Spencer Hurwitz sells samples. (DSHperfumes.com)
Does L'Artisan have a sample program?
I see this term used on the boards when talking about testing a perfume, i.e. "I gave the sample a full wearing". Could you please define this for me? Do you mean letting it completely develop over...
Dzing! did the same thing to me -- I was sure an elephant had just pooped in the room!
Today I am sampling By Kilian Sweet Redemption. This is a moderately sweet, complex orange blossom scent. ...
Yesterday: power outage, car trouble (clutch burned out) and late for work. Came home, poured a glass of wine and drank most of it before noticing EWWWWW a fly in the glass.
Today has to be...
Wow, Foustie, how great is this?
Count me in as interested for set #2. You had me at "amber and patchouly". I am happy to post my impressions and to pass along samples.
Starlet = Hermes Kelly Caleche
Streetwalker = Agent Provocateur
I have a similar problem.
Both my forearms have broken out recently in small itchy red bumps. I have recently tested several fragrances, but sadly think that it's the vintage Mitsouko extrait that...
I haven't tried The Dreamer. I own and wear Jil Sander Man Absolute (this is a scrumptious ambery-vanilla-leather) and Dior Homme.
Magie Noire. I even kinda dig the new stuff, but the vintage was truly amazing. If anyone has some they don't want...I am always looking...
1) Hermessence Line (have sample of Ambre Narguile, but want to try the rest)
2) SL Fumerie Turque
3) Malle L'Eau d'Hiver
4) Malle Portrait of a Lady
5) Agent Provocateur L'Agent
I have dozens...
I sampled Dawn Spencer Hurwitz Memory and Desire No. 1.
This was inspired by The interpretation of Ezra Pound’s poetry: In A Station of the Metro:
"The apparition of these faces in the crowd;...
I sampled L'Ombre Fauve recently and found it to be a dusty and patchouli amber, and loved the "furry" feel, but I ended up preferring (and buying)Histories de Parfum Ambre 114. Sorry, haven't...
Good morning! Welcome Astrud.
Mike -- need to test Bahiana - sounds yummy
I am taking a break from sampling to wear an all time favorite -- Chanel Coromandel.
- - - Updated - - -
Chanel Coromandel for me today. Taking a break from sampling to wear an all time favorite.
Whoa, that could have been so much worse. Naughty, (but thankfully ok) Kitty.
(hmm...I might buy a perfume called Naughty Kitty -- sounds like something ELDO would make)
Dior Escale a Portafino-- a bright citrus with some interesting spicy notes and a woody dry down came to mind. I also like O de Lancome -- but it has longevity problems.
Teardrop: That sounds like something I'd LOVE. I am thinking of going to Hermes boutique soon and trying that (among others)
In the hot weather, I like O de Lancome, Hermes Jardin Sur le Nil, L'Artisan The Pour un Ete and Yves Rocher Voile d'Ambre, and Quartz by Molyneux.
Lately I've been sampling...
Today I tried Eau de Charlotte by Annick Goutal.
First it’s quite soapy, then its baby powder. The first 20 minutes are very unpleasant. I do not like LOTV in my scents. The middle does have a...
I voted for Euphoria. I almost always get a compliment on how good I smell in it, particularly layered with the body lotion. Midnight Poison was not terribly memorable to me, and I much prefer...
I picked a sample today from my recent binge.
Parfum d'Empire Ambre Russe.
First thoughts: This is NOT a July scent.
Also, this celebrated boozy opening is harsh and unpleasant to me, in...
Everyone join in now
Raindrops on roses and whiskers on kittens.
Bright copper kettles and warm woolen mittens.
Brown paper packages tied up with strings....
It appears that all my favorite frags are in this category, so I'm watching this thread for more scents to sniff.
I think Lancome Magie Noire should be sampled by more men. It's a spicy, incensey...
Things I really love:
Sleeping in on Sunday
Tulips in April
Having someone wash my hair
I got a bunch of samples in the mail today.

Wooznib, you are most welcome for the Songes! The mojitos sound terrific.
I'm sampling Diptyque Philosykos for now, and going to a Chicago White Sox game tonight with my son (age 13). For that,...
Thanks so much Kalli! Your generosity is inspiring.
I just tonight sprayed Tocca Stella. The notes on this one are bitter orange, blood orange, watery accord, white freesia, wild diamond orchid, spicy lily, sheer musk, sandalwood.
I have sampled Tocca Colette and posted my thoughts in the Sample of the day thread June 12.
Here's what I thought:
Tocca Colette: Launched in 2010, this fragrance sounds like it has a lot of...
The Tauer sample set. I picked Le Maroc pour Elle, L'air du desert Marocain, Vetiver Dance, Zeta, and Pentachord White.
Also, Kroc's Tom Ford Amber Absolute split 50 ml.
Congrats on your 1000th!
I'll have a go at the HP elixir, as I own and love the HP.
I pick 69.
I am sampling Teo Cabanel Meloe, which came free with the purchase of the delightful Alahine. It is not listed in basenotes fragrance directory, although it came out in 2008 according to Fragrantica....
I got to drive my dream car the Audi RS8 through Napa and Sonoma last fall. I don't remember what perfume I was wearing!
If I was to do it today, I would pick FM Musc Ravageur. The power, the...
Thanks for your kind words Wolfie, I am in your debt for all those lovely samples I received from you in this thread. As for Feng Shui, I tried to understand it, I bought a book about it, but I...

Tauer Une Rose Vermeille today. Violets, raspberry, vanilla and rose. Gourmands aren't usually my favorite, but this is intoxicating
FYI, there is a seller with 6 available .5 oz bottles of Spring Fever on eBay.
Tocca Colette: Launched in 2010, this fragrance sounds like it has a lot of promise in the notes.
Bergamot, Mandarin, Lemon, Juniper Berry, Pink Peppercorn
Histories de Parfums Ambre 114 has some spice (nutmeg, not cinnamon) and a slightly sweetened gorgeous amber that smoulders. I think it's sophisticated and sensual. Disclaimer: I am currently...
Could you make me a Chypre Ct sign? That's where I'll build my dream home.
Today I'm luxuriating in Histoires de Parfums Ambre 114. A new love of mine, and I've fallen hard! I love the spicy...
I haven't tried Oro, but own Cinema and have tested Jungle L'elephant. Cinema is a comforting almond scented floral with mimosa and vanilla notes that I sometimes truly crave. I detect a note that...
I've been lucky enough to visit NYC this week, so I made my first trip to Aedes de Venusta. I'm sure it won't be my last.
I bought full bottles of:
Frederic Malle Musc Ravageur
+1 Chanel Coromandel
Yves Rocher Voile d'Ambre (this is beautiful, don't let the low price make you think less of it)
Today I'm sampling Parfumerie Generale Private Collection Corps et Ames. It is marketed as a unisex modern chypre. This starts out dry, dusty and leathery. I don't get much floral, but there is a...
I would like to enter!
Dior Homme for me. I spritzed about 6 hours ago and am loving the woodsy, powdery, iris dry down.
Since getting started on my recent exploration of scent, these are the ones that have made my favorites list.
1. Chanel Coromandel
2. Acqua di Parma Profumo
3. Teo Cabanel Alahine
4. Parfums de...
Guerlain Mitsouko parfum 15 ml from ebay (crossing fingers it's as good as my decant from posh peasant)
Hermes Amazone pure parfum 7.5 ml
Chanel Bois des Iles pure parfum 7.5 ml
IMO, Sensual Amber smells very like Victor and Rolf Flowerbomb. I layer the B&BW lotions with Flowerbomb. Smells great, but VERY sweet. Sometimes too sweet. If you like Sensual Amber, try...
I am wearing a sample of Chanel 31 Rue Cambon for the first time ever. Such an elegant beauty, and the dry down is ambery, sweet, patchouli so I should love it, but I feel a bit reserved about it. ...
I wore Yves Rocher Voile d'Ambre yesterday and it was just that -- a quiet amber that wears close to the skin. Quite a bargain, imo. I love Hermessence Ambre Narguile, a super sweetened amber.
Now I feel bad for not saying I was bewildered. I was challenged, and I love a challenge. It was a great experience.
Thanks, S for such a great collection of scents for us to sniff and decipher. My favorite was definitely CDG and I could see myself wearing it in the winter, especially if I had a cold. Yes, that's...
One more guess before I go.
I don't know what milky horlix is, sorry.
Notes that jump out at me:
some sort of booze -- I thought it was cognac
Maybe cocoa, patchouli.
I have to get my kids to baseball...
I had a guess as well.
The color is pale yellow, just a tad darker than "B"
The opening is fantastic on this one. I would describe it as a tea flavored with orange, spices (maybe cinnamon) and spiked with booze. ...
I have "C" on and am scribbling my notes. Let me know when I can start posting!
Good morning all! F - sounds like a very pleasant and relaxing day!
Rain in Chicago and I'm off to sloooow start this morning. First order of business is caffeine. Will check back soon.
What a fun game this is! I couldn't allow dawn to rise on this scent un-identified. I need to get kiddos to bed before I start to analyze "C".
I'm in synch with Bottega Veneta. I am almost done with my second sample of this beauty, and it's near the top of my to buy list. Maybe mother's day ( I keep hinting, we shall see.)
I sent a guess, but feeling very unsure. Brassy hint, metal references, but still....could it be?
Well done Mumsy! I'm off with these new hints to do some searching.
Very interesting, F. I have to keep respraying -- this only lasts 30 minutes on my skin. I haven't tried on paper yet. Will do that now....
Sent a guess after Twolf's "old fashioned" comment gave me an idea
Old fashioned, huh....there goes my "trying to be a modern chypre" thoughts...
So I made myself come to the bottom of this thread without reading other's impressions. I will now add my 2 cents on "B"
The color in this vial is very pale yellow.
Opening is a straight up...
I am working till 9 central time now and can not access basenotes except thru my phone which is too laborious to type on. will post my impressions tonite
Well done, Mumsy!
FrouFrou, I agree on bergamot. But I'm nowhere near a guess yet.
I sprayed A while giving my son his bath, and I know I've never smelled this before. It is packaged in a translucent blue colored vial and I think it is a very pale yellow or clear color. The first...
Finally able to access Basenotes! I haven't dug into samples or Turkish Delight, but will indulge my sweet tooth I think! I am sorta tied up with kiddie care tonight as husband is out of town on...
Coromandel. My favorite Chanel.
I was out of touch earlier in the week with crazy work schedule. But back now and things calmed down. I am a night owl (in Chicago) and usually get my internet time in during the evenings.
My package arrived! Woo-hoo!! Thanks to Saripatates and Twolf.
Hermes Eau d'Orange Verte -- I'd be definitely interested in coming closer for a good sniff!
From ebay, claiming to be 20+ years old. When is something "vintage"? Just before the latest reformulation? A certain number of years?
Christian Dior Dune EDT
CD Dolce Vita
Evangeline, I'm adding Sunessence Or d'Ambre aka Beach Alien to my list. Thanks!
I'm in Acqua di Parma Iris Nobile EDP which the Turin/Sanchez guide and others say is not really iris, more of...
