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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.Originally Posted by whitebar
And, this morning, an e-mail, from a Linda saying that they were sending me 2 samples.
I received a positive reply from Malle's. They're sending my some 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 also had a very favorable response from Trumper; just Friday I received 8 samples!Originally Posted by apekrul
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.
I emailed Yosh once, they ever bothered to emal back. I don't think they're to keen on sending free sample.Originally Posted by AZsmells

I received a catalogue and some more papers yesterday but no samples yet... I'll wait for a couple more days :-?
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
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?Originally Posted by moon_fish
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.Originally Posted by apekrul
I hope I get my Trumper samples soon.....so far I received some nice catalogues along with some extra papers. Dying to try Eucris and Sandalwood Cologne!
Don't worry I got the catalogs and a week later I got the samples.Originally Posted by egoist
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.

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....... :
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.
The ones L'Artisan sent me was one of those typical 1ml vials, but I was surprised they had sent me 7 samples.... Wow, Malle sent you two 5ml spray decants? You know what? Let me give it a try! Thansk for the info. *;D
I was too busy to post this when I got it:

I would be more than happy to send along a sample collection of our
Note that people aren't really calling me "Moose" in the emails, I've just switched out my real name.
Anyway, on Friday I got a nice set of wax samples from Palais Royal Shiseido.
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!!!
