    ^ Thanks, I found an e-mail that worked. This is the reply I received, I do not know whether to invest some hope into this or chalk it up to the olde run-around

    "Thank you for your interest in the Serge Lutens brand.
    We have forwarded your request onto the Salons du Palais Royal, who will respond as soon as possible.
    We remain at your disposal should you require further information.

    With kindest regards,
    Angélina"

    In better news, I also received a positive response from Mugler!

    Default New James Bond 007 free sample

    Hello all,

    I hope this isn't in violation of Rule 2.10 No soliciting or advertising but I found that their website is allowing you to have a free sample sent to your home if you live in the right country. Here is the link:

    I got a response from Serge Lutens, and it sounds like they will be sending me samples (not sure which ones). But, from what others said in this thread, they don't ship internationally. So, idk.

    Well I got my "samples" from Lutens. They are just wax or something, so they are pretty worthless. Plus, most of what they sent me seems to be female fragrances...and no Cherugi, which was the whole point for me.

    This was an interesting thread to discover! I tried e-mailing Penhaligons and Serge Lutens. Both came back to me very quickly - Penhaligons are sending a sample of 'Sartorial' (they didn't have 'Endymion' or 'Opus 1870' available but I have discovered that they have an outlet in Edinburgh so I can try them there) and Lutens are sending me their 'little book'. I believe this will be the waxes but that's ok. I was so pleased, I'm hoping I find something to like in both houses so I can maybe buy a bottle from each (I already really like Lutens 'Santal Majuscule')

    What e-mail have you used for Lutens? There seems to be something wrong with the one they have listed on their website. My e-mails keep getting returned.
    Ditto on Hermes, although Malle did not respond to my personalized walkthrough thing.

    Has Anyone had any luck getting samples in Australia ?

    Also what exactly do you write in your emails ?

    " Im a big fan of your fragrances and have been using ( insert name) for as long as I can remember. I am very interested in experiencing some of your other fragrances but my local department store doesn't stock them. Could I please get a sample of ( insert name). I am more than happy to pay for any associated postage costs. Thanks "

    Lutens don't answer emails. You need to write to their paris royal address. I did twice in the past, once for myself and another time for my friend. In both times, I got a pack of 4 carded wax samples, each containing 4 perfumes.

    How odd, because I always get a response from them and they send me samples, even vials.

    Lutens responded very quickly when I e-mailed them and a couple of weeks later I received their pack of 'concretes' which I'm gradually working my way through. There's a lot to sniff there and I found them speedy and courteous.

    I tried a few weeks ago and had no luck. They replied with the usual 'when you order something you can select some samples'. Interestingly enough the two that I wanted to sample (Pure Malt and Pure Havane) were not available as samples. Had to blind buy both.

    Just thought I'd let those that sub to this thread know that I got 5 4mL samples from Hermes today after emailing them about the Hermessence line a week ago. They sent Santal, Vetiver Tonka, Poivre, Ambre, and Osmanthe.

    I'm very impressed with their customer service, especially giving such large samples (granted they are dab and not spray). Still, thumbs up to them!

    After finding and really enjoying Encre Noire, and having a hard time finding any retail outlet to check out their other scents, I randomly emailed Lalique to see if they'd send some samples. Sure enough, they got back to me a day later and sent out a package with a few samples. They were out of a few others but promised to send them when they get them in. I'm really enjoying Equus! Rich spices interweaving with a coniferous note (sometimes I think pine, sometimes cedar, but I see in the pyramid it's juniper berries at the top. Go figure.) Smooth, classy stuff. Lalique makes some great fragrances - Equus, to me, is easy niche quality stuff - and you can get almost all of them for dirt cheap through the Interwebs.

    Rosine sells samples in sets of 3 or 15-- see the listing for "echantillons" in their boutique; they're a good deal as it includes shipping: http://www.les-parfums-de-rosine.com...t&rub=boutique[/QUOTE]

    Would like to ask what size ml are the Rosine samples ? Thanks

    I recently emailed Floris to get a free sample of their exclusive Mahon Leather fragrance which retails at £99 and they sent me a nice 2ml sample. A very nice plush & luxurious leather fragrance.

    A number of houses referenced like Cereus and Piguet now have sample offerings shown on their website, which consists of what appears like "scratch 'n sniff" swatches. When I was at Sephora, the saleswoman helping me gave me a bunch of these types of samples (in addition to real ones in 1ml vials), which was the first time I'd seen these. I suspect asking for samples from many of these places will result in a "please have a look at our samples offering on the website" with a link. Some places have reasonably priced samples of actual liquid, but you do have to pay for them.

    Lutens, Floris and Hermes all said that they would send me samples.. Haven't received anything yet, but it's only been a week.

    Hermes sent me some. Their message mechanism is primitive and you get a form reply. But... low and behold, they sent samples after a couple of weeks. I was surprised, as the Hermes boutique in NYC is not far from me. You'd figure they would have just sent me a polite invitation to their store. Instead a nice padded envelope arrived with samples from the Hermessence line, with a return address on 59th street in Manhattan. Again, they didn't really need to send me samples, but they did anyway. I wrote back and thanked them heartily, upon which i did get a personal response. They were quite pleasant! Nobody else I've written to has been as forthcoming. I think the age of free samples is just about over.

    That's very nice that they did that, and the exclusive line no less. Congrats!

    Hi gooddeal123 - there are some suggestions in this thread - just check out the websites mentioned, or others that interest you, then send an email.
    I've never tried, but some appear to have success.
