You can never get samples from any departmental stores or fragrance shops in my country for free. It's as if there was some unwritten rule for them not to do so. And even when they DO give samples, they'll give you the samples for the fragrance you bought. For example, I got a sample of A*Men when I bought the standard sized bottle... I don't know what are they trying to achieve here... giving you the samples for the fragrance you just bought... Why are they then called SAMPLES in the first place?????
