    Lutens usually send little book of parfums after contact from main site of Palais Royal Boutique - solid parfums are very good! And they also send new parfums just after release. I get Borneo 1834 test wax a month ago!
    Moonfish (or anyone).

    Do you have the url/link to Lutens Palais Royal Boutique site?[/quote]

    I just sent an e-mail to Trumpers and they replied within 5 minutes, stating that they'll send me the latest catalogue and a bunch of sample vails

    Haha...total mockage...I e-mailed them last week and got my sample Wednesday. ;D

    BTW, I e-mailed a few places last night, and when I checked my e-mail this morning I'd already gotten positive responses back from Trumper and Ormonde Jayne.

    I emailed Ormonde Jayne a week ago and have yet to receive a reply. Shame too as I was really interested in their men's scents but I do not wish to purchase 8 samples when only 3 of them are for men. All I asked was if it would be possible to just sample the men's scents so I wonder why they did not reply??? Not very good business practice if you ask me.

    Ahh...haha...it seems that the Force is strong with me, or something. I just e-mailed [email protected] and said something along the lines of "I'm intrigued by your fragrance Ormonde for Men and there are no retailers near me." And since the site was in France, I believe, I mentioned that I wasn't sure what assets they had in the USA, but if it were possible, I'd be very grateful for a sample.

    And, this morning, an e-mail, from a Linda saying that they were sending me 2 samples.

    Just got home today and checked my e-mail. Amouage and Truefitt & Hill are sending me samples. Heck, the T&H rep even said she'd be sending out samples of shaving cream and balm along with cologne samples . But, sadly, the Lorenzo Villoresi rep sent a reply saying that I could pay to receive samples. :'( Oh well, I've quite a few samples coming, and come payday this Friday I plan on ordering several decants, so I've got plenty on my plate ahead of me, so to speak, in terms of fragrance testing. Woohoo!

    I emailed Yosh once and she told me I can buy samples from luckyscent.com but she did send me free samples of Opening Night and Box G since luckyscent doesn't sell those. She didn't seem too eager to send me samples but she did all the same. As for the fragrances they were good but not worh $130 for 1/4 oz.
    Oriscent, AgarAura Pure Ouds, Creed, LIDGE, Patou Pour Homme, tons of niche and rare stuff for sale!

    I emailed Yosh once, they ever bothered to emal back. I don't think they're to keen on sending free sample.

    Yesterday a new package from Trumpers arrived: a total of 8(!) samples in a classy linnen pouch!! Very quick and good service. I hope at least one of them is to my liking so that I can do something back for these nice people

    And Lorenzo Villoresi did the same after e-mail contact.

    Malle sent me only fragranted papers - all the scents lost by the time it goes through airmail.

    Lutens usually send little book of parfums after contact from main site of Palais Royal Boutique - solid parfums are very good! And they also send new parfums just after release. I get Borneo 1834 test wax a month ago!
    I've had a quick squiz over the Serge Lutens site, but I haven't been able to find a contact email address. Did you use the phone number they have posted to make contact?

    Exactly my experience and intentions, too! I also received a quick reply from Ormonde Jayne, and they are going to send me their two male fragrances. They also have a sample collection of all of their 9 fragrances for $18EU. I filled out the quiz last week at the Malle site, but no one has followed up with me.

    I just send emails to Malle (plus took the quiz), Amouage, Trumper, Ormonde, Trufitt, and Villoresi asking for samples. Palais Royal Boutique website said I had to call a number, which just gave an error message when I tried. I found a 5-year-old sample request form and it seemed to work, but they may not actually get it. I'll let you guys know what I get.

    Ok, well, last week I received my Truefitt & Hill samples. I'd say my favorites of the 5 they sent me(along with some shaving cream and balm), are Spanish Leather and Freshman. I really thought I'd like the 1805, but there was just something about it... The Spanish Leather is a great scent, but I'm not sure I see it as something I'd ever really wear out.

    On Friday I received my Amouage samples. They sent me 2 mini sprayers of Dia and 2 vials of Silver cologne. Of the 2, I prefer the Dia much more. However, unless I win the lottery, I don't ever see myself shelling out the sizeable chunk of change necessary to buy a bottle. It's just not THAT great. It's alright, but to my nose, it smells pretty much like an unremarkable incense. And that's just not worth over $200 a bottle...to me anyway. Of course, as always, YMMV.

    Today, I finally received my Ormonde Jayne samples. I haven't tried them out yet, as today was also the day I received some decants from Scentemental, and I'm currently having my first GIT and MI experience.

    Peace

    I sent an email to L'Artisan inquiring about some samples (like how much it cost to purchase samples) the other day. I already know of most of the major L'Artisan fragrance, but there're some (6-7 items) I was interested in trying smelling. I really didn't think they would email me back, seeing L'Artisan has become a very popular perfume company by now. Well, as a matter of fact, they did not write me back. No surprise. Right? But instead, today I received 7 samples of L'Artisan colognes by mail (for free!). Exactly the ones I mentioned in my email! I was pleasantly surprised. What a generous company! It's a striking contrast to Floris. When I sent a same kind of email to them. They wrote me back and told me they would send me something. Well, I eventually got "something", but it turned out to be a piece of what appeared to have been a scented paper. By the time it got here, there was almost no scent left on the paper. So, I still have got no idea what Santal smells like! I'm still looking forward to Trumper and Divine samples, though....... :

    Hey VV,
    Nice pull on the L'Artisan samples. What did they send you? I think sometimes it helps to request specific samples. I e-mailed Frederick Malle and requested Musc Ravageur and Vetiver Extrodinaire, hoping to receive maybe one or the other...well they ended up sending me 5ml spray decants of both. Nice folks! Havn't tried the VE yet, but wow, the Musc is heavy duty.

    Although it took them a while to arrive, my samples from Trumper finally arrived today. Eight sample vials in a niftly little Trumper tie bag. Pretty sweet considering all I had to do was e-mail them. Today was pretty sweet in general, as far as fragrances went...I got the Trumper smamples in the mail, along with decants of Dzing!, L'eau D'hiver, and Acier Aluminium. Good times!!!
