    I got one from Malle today also (same stuff).

    So far that's 19 fragrances from 5 companies.

    The fragrances discussed in this thread all seem to come from France, Italy and England. I realize those may be the countries where the powerhouses of perfume are, but aren't there other countries with decent perfume industries? Japan? Turkey? Thailand? India? I don't know - just asking. (Japan, for example seems to produce a lot of pretty exotic incense.)
    Also, when I refer to the basenotes directory: http://www.basenotes.net/directory there are many more houses than the ones covered in this thread, although I'm only a newbie here and not an expert on fragrance at all.

    Nippon Kodo sends samples with every order made through their websites, but they don't have anything wearable. Shoyeido (USA) site in Boulder, CO might be willing to send a sample of ground incense powder (wearable and very nice) with an order or just on its own. They have a nice staff there. Also, L'Erbolario (Lodi, Italy) has a USA website and they have sample packs and "gift boxes" for very reasonable prices. They are excellent quality. They might send some specific samples out for free, as well.

    Dear Jennifer Huber,

    Thank you for the attention you pay to our Editions de Parfums.

    After reading your today's questionnaire, I think you could love "L'Eau d'Hiver".
    Nevertheless, if you were to pay us a visit, I would also show you "Iris Poudre".

    But if you are too far from one of our stores, please leave
    us your address.

    Hello BN'ers, does anyone have any advice on contacting Bond No. 9... I called their number 3 weeks ago and was charged 6.00 for samples, but haven't received anything yet, and their NY area number is no longer in service. Thanks in advance...

    Today I recieved a big envelope from Acqua di Parma; it contained 2x 2ml with Fico di Amalfi, 1x 2ml with Mandorlo di Sicilia, 1 beautiful mini of Colonia Assoluta in the genuine yellow cylinder-package, 1 2ml each of Iris Nobile EdT and EdP...
    In addition to this, the salesperson was very kind.

    Absolutely perfect service..Will get bad conscience if I dont make a purchase from the in the nearest future :P

    yes acqua di parma are great - great product great service - got a customer for life here.

    Now Truefitt and Hill -

    said they would send me samples months ago. after about three months i had an email saying that my original one had got caught up in their spam system and they would ensure i got samples but ....still nothing months after that. meanwhile trumpers samples have arrived and i have placed two orders (and chances are I will continue to order, I really want some eucris and gft).

    so samples work and bad companies lose business.

    Fico di Amalfi and Mandorlo di Sicilia are my fave AdP fragrances. The Fico is so cheerful and summery with the bright fig with orange and flowery aspects, and can be easily worn by either men or women. Mandorlo has that lovely calming almond aroma!

    Good for AdP that they are generous with samples. The scents speak for themselves. I also have a bit of a "conscience" about it, since I have had their samples from shops, as well as the email request, so have tried them a few times (and loved them). They are on my "to buy" list.

    Yes, exactly..This is a good proof that such service actually pays back for the companies...

    As for the scents, I must say the Irises disappointed me a little, maybe because they were way too feminine for a guy to wear, but Fico and Assoluta are absolutely wonderful. It has always irritated me that Colonia turns sour on me in the drydown, but in Assoluta it stays with that perfect drydown..
    Haven't tried Mandorlo yet, but it smells like something I might love from the nozzle..

    Sorry for making this into a review:P

    Hello! Would someone (Oscar? Hirch?) mind posting the email address for Aqua di Parma? Their website just morphs into a plain black screen every time I visit it. Maybe it's my browser. Thanks!

    Default Survey: which manufacturers give free samples?

    My apologies for the shameless nature of this first post, but there was a great discussion thread a while back where everyone posted their experiences requesting samples from manufacturers. That thread seems to have expired from the archives. For my part, I remember that people had good luck with Trumper's and Truefitt & Hill. Anyone remember any others?

  13. #223

    Default Re: Survey: which manufacturers give free samples?

    I have personally received free samples from:

    -Frederic Malle
    -L'Artisan
    -Divine

    I so far have only attempted these 3 and have had success each time.

    - Frederic Malle
    - l'Artisan Parfumeur
    - Amouage
    - Geo F. Trumpers (sent me 18 samples!)

    for uk, i have received rather lame postcard samples from:

    Hugo Boss
    Lacoste
    Britney spears (for the missus)

    Still waiting 3+ weeks for others, by which point I would have spent over £100 on someone elses fragrances!

    One thing most of them do though (Floris, Frederic Malle...) if you live near a big city like NYC, Chicago or whatever they will just tell you to
    go to their store in the city and get samples there.

    Aqua Di Parma sent me one sample the other day but the weird was that the sample came from Bergdorf Goodman in Manhattan and I live in Queens (about 10 minute away). So you never know.

    I don't think that $3 is too bad if they send a decent number of samples.

    Trumper, as others have noted here, wants 3 pounds before they will send samples overseas.

    I got negative replies from Amouge, who said I should purchase samples via their website.

    Ixnayed by Caron, who said I should visit their store, as I live in NYC Maybe I can get samples at the store!

    Will follow up as I get more info
