    Default Geo F. Trumper---Free samples, *class act.

    Got my samples yesterday.

    Here's *a very brief review:

    1. GTF---Pass. *You may like it if you're very addicted to citrus frgs, though.

    2. West Indian Lime--Pass. *Over the top.

    3. Milk of Flowers---Decided to pass. *The clove note makes it *a kind of
    Jacomo Lite for Summer. *Good drydown but a bit too weird.

    4. Eucris.---WOW! *I had my feet on the coffee table watching TV late at night and got an uncontrolable urge to wear a tuxedo and head to the Baccarat table at the nearest casino. * Walther PPK optional---Get it!. * Pure elegance.

    5. *Curzon---Anyone know what's in this? * Splendid eveningwear. *Get it.

    6. Spanish Leather---Not enough oo's in smooth for this one. *It plays around with
    leather and musk. *Subdued *enough for officewear, strong enough for romantic encounters---Get it!

    7. Sandalwood---Yes, *it's good but I prefer MpG's Santal Noble.


    My first purchases*will be Eucris and Spanish Leather. *

    If you've tried these and *have also been as *impressed as I was, *what else would you recommend?

    My thanks to the Trumper co.

    I was turned on to Eucris here on BN recently, and when the bottle arrived, I was instantly in love. I cannot think of a more immediately perfect masculine scent that I have ever tried, sans perhaps Tuscany, which also was immediately excellent. Eucris is a true power scent, but has the perfect complex blend, and level of intensity, so as to not be too much, yet just right at all times. And it lasts all day too. I love this stuff. I just ordered my second bottle to have on hand, cause I know this is a keeper and will be worn often. Eucris embodies exactly what I have looked for in a male scent....class, strength, sophistication, power, etc. And I love the James Bond connection. It, to me, is what Yatagan should be, if Yatagan dropped the Celery/Eucalyptus thing, the rest of the scent would be wonderful and wearable in the real world. Eucris is instantly just as masculine and strong as Yatagan, without any strange notes. Just pure sophistication and strength.

    Now I need to try Spanish Leather!

    Of the ones that haven't been mentioned above, I really like Trumper's Eau de Quinine. It has a bittersweet opening, followed by a sweetish drydown. Eau de Quinine has a very traditional, old-school feel to it (the formula is originally from the 19th century), so it would probably appeal to afficiandos of English barbershop-style scents. Not a "modern" style of fragrance, but delightfully quirky.

    I've also read a lot of positive comments on Ajaccio Violets on Basenotes and men's wet shaving internet sites. Alas, Trumper's didn't include this one when they sent me free samples. Many people seem really taken by the smell of Ajaccio Violets - it's often described as "unique" - although it has also been criticised for being quite short-lived.

    I suspect with Trumper's that virtually all their frags are at least worth trying. Even if you don't like some of their scents, there's no denying their quality. None of the Trumper's fragrances I've tried smell "cheap".

    Trumpers is very gererous with their samples, and most of their scents are wonderfully sophisticated.

    Verve: The Ajaccio Violets is very nice, not overly sweet, but not long lasting. Not one I'd purchase.

    RonF: I share your feelings about Eucris, but as with all Trumper colognes, I'm having a tough time locating it. From whom are are you ordering? Thanks.

    Ajacco Violets is a very refined, clean-smelling, fresh fragrance. Like all Trumper fragrance undniable high quality. Not too long-lasting, but at least worth a try.
    Eucris is really wonderful, a perfect choice for evening wear. I also second Mario's comment on Spanish Leather: it's definitely a must-have!
    Other great Trumper frags: Royal (smooth, luxurious), Marlborough (soapy), Astor (green), Sylvester and Skye (the best aquatic scent I know). All Trumper fragrances are extremeyl well handicrafted.
    Trumper's colognes have a reasonable price and a very high quality standard - so each one is recommendable, although GFT, West Indian Lime and Milk of flowers are not as unique as the others. Curzon and Quinine are quite eccentric - you should sample them before you buy.

    Too true, Gerald. I agree also with Rapscallion's comment about Trumper's fragrances being "wonderfully sophisticated".

    I've only discovered Trumper's fragrances recently, after asking for, and kindly receiving, samples from them. But WHAT a discovery this has been!

    I now own, and enjoy, bottles of GFT and Sandalwood.

    I've tried 6 Trumper's fragrances. One thing that amazes me is how natural-smelling all their fragrances seem to be. I've been banging on for aeons on Basenotes about how much I dislike the overtly synthetic quality of many recently released designer fragrances. And yet with Trumper's, even quite recent releases such as GFT (2001) and Sandalwood (2002) manage to avoid those ghastly synthetic overtones that plague - and to me simply ruin - so many recently-released designer fragrances.

    And don't forget, Trumper's is a very small player in the fragrance world. If they have the resources and wherewithal to produce such high-quality, natural-smelling fragrances, what excuse do larger companies have for inflicting extremely synthetic smelling atrocities such as Higher Energy, Allure, and Givenchy Pour Homme upon us? (Apologies here to anyone that enjoys these fragrances. I adore quite a few fragrances - both men's and women's- from Dior, Chanel and Givenchy. But not these recent releases).

    Trumper's is an exceptional fragrance house IMHO. The quality of their fragrances is obvious to anyone who tries them. (They also produce men's shaving creams that are as good as any you'll find in the world - but that's by-the-by here). And what a relief it is to discover Trumper's after sampling so much recent designer house pap!

    Rapscallion:

    I find numerous sites on the Internet to purchase Trumpers, in both the UK and the USA. Originally, I simply made an online purchase from Trumpers directly. It took about 2 weeks, but the package arrived no problem. You need to convert the currency in order to know how much you are paying, but it costs what it costs, and arrives none the less. Interestingly, the package appears to have come from a US distributer...so, even though I ordered from Trumpers UK, they apparantly passed it off to a US source for distribution.

    My second purchase was from a site in the US...can't think of the name right now, but it was a simple Google to find several such sites, and I picked the one that looked the best. Price was about $72 shipped for a standard 100ml bottle of Eucris. Once it arrives in a few days, as long as all is well with it, I will post up the name of the site as a recommend.

    Thanks for the suggestions!

    In fairness I should add that you should first sample Spanish Leather, as some of you will not find it *"complex " enough. *Somewhat akin to my preference for Santal Noble over the Trumper Sandalwood. * But yes, I am odering this 'simple' fragrance. *If you know of other great leather scents, *please post.

    Mind you, *I pray no one suggests 'Bandit' , *but to each his own---

    On the other hand, *Curzon, * like Eucris, * is both elegant and complex--and I still haven't a clue as to what's in it. * I like Eucris better but I'm *still curious. * Does anyone know the notes?

    Now I've got to try *Quinine, Astor and Skye *

    Basenoters to the rescue again! Thanks for posting the links where Trumper colognes are available. U.S sources are so hard to locate.
    I've gone through about a dozen samples and have enjoyed them all. Trumpers is quite an amazing house. Everything is so refined. I own their Sandalwood cologne, which ranks as one of my favorite colognes and is reserved for very special occasions. There are a couple of other scents I'm after -Eucris is one of them.

    Now I've got to try Quinine, Astor and Skye
    I found Skye very feminine/floral. (don't know if that would bother you or not, but it's the antithesis of Eucris in that regard) Actually it's great frag, but, in my opinion, on a woman. Smells EXACTLY like a certain flower - I'm not sure which, but it's a very familiar scent.

    Quinine I haven't tried, but I heard it starts out with a bitter note?

    I also sampled Wellington. It was okay, but not as appealing as Astor/SL/Eucris IMO.

    I got my free samples by sending Trumper's an email through their website and asking for some. Their website is:

    They sent me 6 samples, which arrived within about 3-4 days.

    Default On Getting Free Samples from Companies Now

    Ok, well, last week in a thread someone recommended Musc Ravageur and mentioned that if they were feeling generous e-mailing them might net a free sample. So, I did e-mail them. Then, last night, I was reading in a sandalwood thread about Art of Shavings Sandalwood EDT and how they also might be kind enough to send samples with an e-mail. Well, I realized at that point that I hadn't checked the mail for the day and I went outside, and what was on my porch, but a glorious little box with French on it and the words "Cosmetic Product". Yup, I received a little 5ml sample spray bottle of Musc Ravageur, which I must say, kicks butt!

    Well, anyway, what I was wanting to ask, is are there any other great scents out there, the kind I wouldn't find at Dillards, that have manufacturers who often send out free samples if inquiries are made...because they are either generous or have great business sense...or both? Of course, I could just go to town and e-mail every cologne maker under the sun, but I was wondering if you guys knew of any others with a preponderance for this behavior. Funds are a bit constrained at this moment, and even when I get paid in a little over a week, I really plan on restricting myself to a few decants, and at most, a bottle of something I really like. But, I'm in that unabashed "crack fiend" gotta try new stuff phase, so well, hey, I just want the scent train to keep on rolling. And any free is good given the ever expanding financial commitment of this hobby. So basically, it would be great if you'd list any others you know, and right now, I'm willing to give any scent a whirl.

    I emailed Ormonde Jayne a week ago and have yet to receive a reply. Shame too as I was really interested in their men's scents but I do not wish to purchase 8 samples when only 3 of them are for men.

    Ahh...haha...it seems that the Force is strong with me, or something. I just e-mailed sales@ormondejayne.com and said something along the lines of "I'm intrigued by your fragrance Ormonde for Men and there are no retailers near me." And since the site was in France, I believe, I mentioned that I wasn't sure what assets they had in the USA, but if it were possible, I'd be very grateful for a sample.

    And, this morning, an e-mail, from a Linda saying that they were sending me 2 samples.

    Exactly my experience and intentions, too! I also received a quick reply from Ormonde Jayne, and they are going to send me their two male fragrances. They also have a sample collection of all of their 9 fragrances for $18EU. I filled out the quiz last week at the Malle site, but no one has followed up with me.

    Ok, well, last week I received my Truefitt & Hill samples. I'd say my favorites of the 5 they sent me(along with some shaving cream and balm), are Spanish Leather and Freshman. I really thought I'd like the 1805, but there was just something about it... The Spanish Leather is a great scent, but I'm not sure I see it as something I'd ever really wear out.

    On Friday I received my Amouage samples. They sent me 2 mini sprayers of Dia and 2 vials of Silver cologne. Of the 2, I prefer the Dia much more. However, unless I win the lottery, I don't ever see myself shelling out the sizeable chunk of change necessary to buy a bottle. It's just not THAT great. It's alright, but to my nose, it smells pretty much like an unremarkable incense. And that's just not worth over $200 a bottle...to me anyway. Of course, as always, YMMV.

    Today, I finally received my Ormonde Jayne samples. I haven't tried them out yet, as today was also the day I received some decants from Scentemental, and I'm currently having my first GIT and MI experience.

    Peace

    I sent an email to L'Artisan inquiring about some samples (like how much it cost to purchase samples) the other day. I already know of most of the major L'Artisan fragrance, but there're some (6-7 items) I was interested in trying smelling. I really didn't think they would email me back, seeing L'Artisan has become a very popular perfume company by now. Well, as a matter of fact, they did not write me back. No surprise. Right? But instead, today I received 7 samples of L'Artisan colognes by mail (for free!). Exactly the ones I mentioned in my email! I was pleasantly surprised. What a generous company! It's a striking contrast to Floris. When I sent a same kind of email to them. They wrote me back and told me they would send me something. Well, I eventually got "something", but it turned out to be a piece of what appeared to have been a scented paper. By the time it got here, there was almost no scent left on the paper. So, I still have got no idea what Santal smells like! I'm still looking forward to Trumper and Divine samples, though....... :

    Hey VV,
    Nice pull on the L'Artisan samples. What did they send you? I think sometimes it helps to request specific samples. I e-mailed Frederick Malle and requested Musc Ravageur and Vetiver Extrodinaire, hoping to receive maybe one or the other...well they ended up sending me 5ml spray decants of both. Nice folks! Havn't tried the VE yet, but wow, the Musc is heavy duty.

    Hi Slim;

    The ones L'Artisan sent me was one of those typical 1ml vials, but I was surprised they had sent me 7 samples.... Wow, Malle sent you two 5ml spray decants? You know what? Let me give it a try! Thansk for the info. *;D

    Note that people aren't really calling me "Moose" in the emails, I've just switched out my real name.

    Anyway, on Friday I got a nice set of wax samples from Palais Royal Shiseido.

    Although it took them a while to arrive, my samples from Trumper finally arrived today. Eight sample vials in a niftly little Trumper tie bag. Pretty sweet considering all I had to do was e-mail them. Today was pretty sweet in general, as far as fragrances went...I got the Trumper smamples in the mail, along with decants of Dzing!, L'eau D'hiver, and Acier Aluminium. Good times!!!
