They'll ship free samples to the US if you ask?
FIND YOUR SIGNATURE - fill this out and they will respond via email with their recommendations. Then, call them at the number in the email and tell them you received their message, and whether you go with their recommendations or pick other scents - they will happily send you 3 samples for a flat $20 fee. I haven't done this in a very long time as I now own all the FM fragrances I like already, but when I did use this service, they were extremely helpful and accommodating - in fact I received 5 samples for the same $20 fee. I did not ask for extras, the girl I spoke with simply wanted me to try couple other fragrances, based on my description of what I liked - and the samples *I* chose were not exactly what she was recommending.
Also - any time you order anything from FM, they are more than happy to include samples of other fragrances completely free. Then again - most companies are happy to include samples with purchase. Obviously don't expect handouts and don't be a total dick just calling to ask for a bunch of free samples, then ask for more and more as the conversation continues (because with that kind of attitude you likely won't get any at all) - but know that if you are a paying customer, they will try to accommodate your requests. And FM sales people are, in my experience, always very accommodating, often going beyond my expectations as a customer.
