    Welcome, Wyllow! For mainstream/designer scents, Nordstrom and Sephora are both very generous with samples. They'll decant what you're interested in -- I know Sephora carries Lolita Lempicka.

    For smaller/niche houses, many of them have sample programs, so I always check their web sites first. If not, places like LuckyScent, Perfumed Court, and BeautyHabit sell samples, although these can be pricey.

    Hello all! This looks like a great forum. I own a luxury men's boutique and I am researching men's fragrances and apothecary which will compliment our collections. We are located in the US. I will be hanging out here for a while learning, but if anyone has advice feel free to pm or e-mail me directly. Best, Jay

    One other thing, I am not interested in items that can be found in department stores. We pride ourselves on exclusivity. CDG fragrances are OK, but that is the most commercial I am considering.

    Welcome mugenx10, I'm a newbie too. I think you came to the right forum. Basenotes is a great place to learn about great and not so great fragrances. The members are great and helpful if you ever need advice.

    Question Re: Welcome to Just Starting Out...

    As a dedicated user, I am NOT concerned with "exclusivity" nor whether one can recognize the scent. On the other hand, I still feel there are scents I'd love from the smaller houses (niche?) and want to explore. Any suggestions? I just found BASIL DREAM by Estee Lauder and love it; the best I've come across since Noa Perle.

    Greetings from Jamaica, West Indies.

    I had an epiphany this morning and decided to search for a fragrance forum and, voila, found Basenotes. Seems like a very comprehensive site so far. Will be doing much more digging as time progresses.

    I was in charge of marketing for a local fragrance and premium apparel store, but lack of commitment from stakeholders (myself included) and a tough economic climate meant the company went belly-up last yr

    Now I'm looking to branch out on my own and really get engrossed in the world of fragrances again.

    Think I'll be on here A LOT from now on. Kudos

    Hello,

    I'm Cyrana and I'm new here. What a great site!

    I am pretty sure my husband, friends and family are tired of listening to me talk about fragrance, so I was happy to come across this forum.

    I consider myself a perfume newbie. I have not worn fragrance in years until recently. My places of employment over the past 12 years have been very strict against wearing anything scented so I just got out of the habit. Now, I wear fragrance at home for my own enjoyment.

    I know I will learn a lot from the perfume lovers on this site!

    Thanks Jon! I'm going to wade in slowly...there is so much to discuss!

    You may have found a good starting place. Most of my life I've had a sister who loved fragrance close enough to me to discuss scents, earlier a mother who loved the bath gels I found (it lightened the mood, she was disabled by age 50 & at first when she needed help getting in & out of the tub, was embarrassed. Luscious scents & a few rubber duckies got rid of THAT quickly; she also loved getting ME scents she wanted me to "try out")
    Now, I've got one full time & two part time secretaries; they love fragrance but cannot always afford what they'd like so of course it is my DUTY to buy them little luxuries. I got an old, old scent from the Vermont Country Store for my full time woman. It brought back memories of her childhood, her mother had carried a tiny bottle of it in her pocket........

    In my line of work talking about scent is a nice break from discussing which county detention center/prison I gotta visit next.

    Hi Peachallie,

    Thank you for sharing that story about your mother. It's amazing how scent can provide comfort and soothe the emotions.

    Hi there everyone, I'm a newbie to this site and so excited to have found it!! I've been obsessed with fragrances since I can remember (maybe when my grandmother gave me a tiny bottle of L'Air du Temps when I was about 8). This site seems to have so many reliable links and interesting members, I hope to get to know some of you and learn lots about my passion!

    Hi everyone! I have only worn a handful of fragrances in my time, but I am curious about other stuff out there.

    I have started a thread on this board and would appreciate any feedback that you may have. Here's a link to the thread:

    I just ordered samples of Lys, Orange Star & Mandarine. Lucky scents isn't cheap, still if you enjoy fragrance enough.....I see noxious candy bars for $2.89. $3.00 for a sample of a good scent is WORTH IT.

    Oops – I missed this thread when I joined up, so I just jumped in with random posts. But here’s my belated introduction:

    I love this forum/site, and have been lurking quite a while – thanks for all the fragrant information I’ve picked up from you wise basenoters! I have always been interested in perfume, but only in the past year have been becoming a bit more obsessed, prompted by my discovery of ordering samples on the internets. Who knew that those little 1ml vials could be so addictive? Finding out more about perfume has awakened my latent nerdy tendencies, and I’m eager to learn about different notes/accords and all sorts of aromas. Although this hobby has caused some concern in my husband (he’s a little freaked by the number of packages arriving at the house), he’s also really interested in scent, and has been thrilled with some of my discoveries (CdG’s Avignon is now a shared fragrance in our house, and he’s become somewhat of a Christopher Brosius fanboy). While it’s nice to have someone at home that will put up with my obsessive interest in fragrance, it’s also great to talk on the forums with folks who share the obsessiveness!

    Thanks again!
