    Today was a banner day!

    Truefitt and Hill responded to my second email and said a package is forthcoming.

    Despite not responding to my actual email, Divine came through with a lovely package that included a 1.7ml sample of everything they make, a lovely note, and a copy of their most recent order sheet with a pre-addressed envelope, should I choose to order something, all contained in a very lovely little parchment folder.

    Plus I got my samples of Jaipur Homme and Crave, which are now added to my sales list.

    All in all, it was a great day to bring in the mail.

    I think if a company is good enough to send you samples you should not sell em! dont think that they do not read boards like this!

    The companies that have sent me samples i have liked , i will buy from them! its good customer service that should be returned with good consumer service!

    I have also sent an email thanking them, and my opinions, also what i intend to buy! maybe its because im english

    I called Barneys, got transferred around and a lady in their fragrance department wrote down my address and my wish list and said that she would pass it on to someone who could help.

    We will see how it goes.

    I don't sell the samples I get from companies, Mark.

    I sell the samples which I have purchased in bulk.

    Its not worth the time or effort to put up a notice that I'm selling one single sample of something. Besides, I asked for it for me! No one else can have that one.

    Recently recieved a package from Trumper's....it took a while, but they mentioned that in their e-mail. They sent me 5 or 6 samples of cologne...but also 3 shaving creams which I love....Rose, Almond, and West Indian Limes....all three are great...I've been lucky enough to get away with a great shave without a brush, but I can imagine how nice the brush would be...definately a coming purchase...

    In response to Hirch....I received probably the best sample package one could ask for...not only about 15 samples of their colognes....they sent a sample of their ultimate comfort shave cream and aftershave balm...it took a little while...but my god...the shave cream alone was worth the wait...and the aftershave balm really is a soothing product...absolutely wonderful. Actually it's a toss up between them and Trumper's as to which shaving products I'm going to purchase...both are about the same in my opinion...FANTASTIC!!

    I'm actually looking for the Montale e-mail address....I thought it was on this thread, but it seems to have dissappeared suddenly, or is my mind playing tricks on me?

    What a gentlemanly thing to do Mark .

    Now coming from the other end of the spectrum, I have sent out samples to a lot of BN members and others out of Basenotes. Most of these I have sent out at my expense, even internationally. Not complaining about this, I consider this a cost of doing business.

    I don't want to rant about this, but about 40% of the people don't even bother to acknowledge that they even received the samples. Funny thing is most of the people that don't acknowledge this, are the ones that get the samples free.

    I'm attempting to get a sample of Sandflowers from Montale, Poivre, Tabac Blonde and Impact from Caron, and the ones I'm most excited for Ormonde Man and Isfarkand from Ormonde Jayne. Based on what I've read I'll be surprised if both of the Ormondes fail to reach my top 10. Caron and Ormonde Jayne promptly emailed me back and are sending samples. There is a delay on the Ormondes (when a company runs out of sample vials, you know they are really independent) which sucks because I can't wait to try those. No response yet from Montale. Just wondering, how are the Birch colognes?

    I GOT MY SAMPLES!!! Barneys came through in a pinch and hooked me up.

    Everything I asked for I got (Arabie, Santal Blanc, Chergui, Douce Amere and Daim Blond)

    Also L'Artisan send me 5 samples (Timbuktu, Merchant Loup, Fou d'Absinthe, Navegar and L'Eau de L'Artisan)

    Big Big Thanks goes to

    A big thumbs up to Parfumerie Generale, from whom I requested Coze (PG No. 02). They've sent me that, plus their Iris Taizo (PG No. 14). These are rich, quite luxurious perfumes. The Coze, based on canapa sativa oil (cannabis apparently), is the more masculine of the two, but both very wearable I think.

    Also received my Caron Yatagan this morning. So all in all quite a good day for samples!

    That's good news hirch. It sounds the same as the package I got. They are great colognes, most of them perfect for hot weather also. The one that stood out most to me was the Sandalwood Cologne.

    My Trumpers arrived today. Three shaving creams, almond, coconut oil and limes and several card samples - Sandalwood, GFT, Eucris, West Indian Limes and two Spanish Leathers. Great, really looking forward to trying these, with Devonshire scones on the plate and some Elgar on the stereo

    Ultimate Comfort shave creame, Ultimate comfort aftershave balm, 1805 shave cream, and a sample of every single cologne they make.

    Hermes won't send samples to Germany, either. Go figure. Still no word from Malle and it's been 2 months. Sigh....

    Trumpers sample arrived. Recieved Extract of Lime, GFT, Bay Rum, Sandalwood and one other.

    Also decided to give Creed a shot. Here goes nothing.

    Still waiting on Caron, Truefitt and Hill and Hermes to send their samples as promised.

    Good luck with the Creed, but I wouldn't get your hopes up there. I emailed Creed ages back and have heard nothing. Caron on the other hand have been very helpful to myself and others and I'm sure they will to you also.

    I got a response and they directed me to a retailer here in Charlotte. I'm psyched.

    Surprisingly enough, I got an envelope from Malle today...and Trumpers!

    In the Malle package, I got 5ml atomizers of Angeliques Sous La Pluie (which is REALLY nice) and Bigarade Concentrée.

    In the Trumpers, I got GFT, Astor, Spanish Leather, Extract of Limes, and Sandalwood.
