    They'll ship free samples to the US if you ask?

    I've contacted various European fragrance houses, from boutique to mainstream, when interested in skin testing a scent before purchase, and most will send a sample to the US, but it's shipped from a US based vendor.

    That depends on what company you're dealing with. You have to e-mail customer service and ask.
    Hermès will send you one sample for free.
    Some companies will charge you for shipping and some will simply ignore you completely.
    Good luck.

    I was asking about Trumper, but are there any other companies that send you samples (besides Hermes and Mugler)

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.

    Thank you for the reply and link.
    I just wish FM customer service had told me as much considering in my e-mail to them I made a point of asking how I could purchase samples.
    Thanks again!

    Thanks for the heads up. I try a lot of samples because I find that longevity is very important for me when considering if i will purchase a FB of a scent or not. I enjoy some scents, e.g. Jo Malone Oud and Bergamot, but hesitate to purchase a FB based on its temporariness on my skin.

    I feel like certain NYC houses just get off letting you know you're sucking up all their time asking for them to send you a drop of a perfume.

    Was wandering Nordstrom fragrance aisles the other day and was asked by a lovely young lady if she could be of assistance. I told her I was always on the lookout for something new, and although she seemed nonplussed that I had no preferences, she walked with me and made several suggestions. Upon arrival at the Chanel counter, she asked whether I had tried Gabrielle, and if not, would I care to. I told her I was already wearing a scent, and mentioned a scarcity of Gabrielle samples, and my reluctance to invest without a few tries. She said "Well, let me make you a sample!" and filled a 2ml spray bottle and said she hoped to see me upon my return. The bottles were unmarked, and did not appear to be exclusively for Chanel use. Excellent customer service.

    Also got a parcel from Lalique. I requested samples from their men's section and their exclusive section and was not disappointed. Just email their contact us link from their website.IMG_20171102_135914.jpg

    Just had a notification from Geo F. Trumper that they're sending me a sample of the new EdP Eucris. As is often the case, a polite request for a local supplier combined with a plaintive lament that i suspected their nearest stockist was actually 300 miles away (true) proved effective.

    I contacted Aesop and they were very gracious in their response, AND they are sending me three fragrance samples gratis.
