    Default *** FREE samples from Parfums Raffy -- Hurry only 100 available!!!

    Aaron from the lovely Parfums Raffy recently dropped me this note:

    We wanted to give your readers the opportunity to try samples of Dragon and Mogul fragrances for absolutely no cost to your readers (No shipping charges either). All they have to do is go to this page and follow the directions:

    Free samples of Mogul + Dragon Cologne from Parfums Raffy

    The only catch is that this offer is only available to the first 100 people who respond to this offer. It would be appreciated if they can give us honest feedback in the fragrance directory or on the forums about Mogul and Dragon.

    Thanks!

    I actually have samples of these frags. Untried as of yet. I'll look forward to giving them a wear and reporting back.

    I talked with Parfums Raffy when I ordered Creed samples (they included Mogul and Dragon). They were very helpful and friendly. And a perfumer requesting feedback is...well...it's shocking! And nice.

    Hope I'm not too late. Great offer, and it underscores the significance of the BN community.
    Very classic notes, I'll be interested to see what they made of them. Would think ingredient quality will be pivotal here.

    I assume they'll take the page down once they've hit 100, but we can't say with any certainty.

    At any rate, email sent - looking forward to trying (and possibly buying)!

    Edit: Looking at the pyramid, it seems as though I'd be more interested in Mogul, since I don't like overly woody scent, but hey, you never know. NR for Him surprised me and hopefully I'll love them both.

    I love to have frags that no one else does.

    They sent me an email confirming that they were sending the samples. They probably aren't a work yet today, so it may take a few hours.

    Horray I'll be getting the samples!

    Dragon looks the most interesting. I love smoky woods. I hope the woods aren't as potent as Gucci pH... but maybe I do hope so!

    Being EdP's that's a huge plus. Can't wait!

    Yup, just got my confirmation as well - send the email, it couldn't hurt.

    If they reach 100, these could two of the most reviewed frags on the site!

    Is there a way to contact frag companies so that more will do this in the future? If so, would it be possible to promise them a new thread (even if nobody responds to it) in return for the samples? This seems to be a real "win-win" possibility for us "frag junkies" as well as the companies (unless, perhaps, they crank out a really awful product - LOL).

    Got mine today and upon first sniff, preferred Mogul. But proof is in the wearing so I will wear one on each wrist and report back

    Edit: Mogul is very nice. Got that freshness about it, but it is not soapy, nor is it that air freshener type of scent. I can't put my finger on the topnote, and have not checked the pyramid. This one would be a great office wear, summer scent. Now Dragon, I did get the smokiness right off the bat. I get more of a leather than a wood, but it may be my chemistry. Mogul projects more, but I find the Dragon more interesting to the nose. If I was buying them, after one hour's wearing, I would buy Dragon.

    I looked on the parfums raffy website today, and it looks like the free sample promotion is public too(each sample is 1 cent each plus shipping). So anyone who missed out, you can still try them out for relatively cheap.

    Default Re: *** FREE samples from Parfums Raffy -- Hurry only 100 available!!!

    Awww man I guess I missed the whole sample givaway. I've been to the Parfum Raffy store in Sherman Oaks several times, and I would highly recommend it to anyone. They have some heavy hitters there...Including Amouage, Creed, Montale, L'Artisan and others.

    I got my samples in lighning fast time, and have already tested them once. I like them both, but am testing again so I can really give them each a fair sniff. Perhaps I even like them a little better because they were free! Kind of busts up the old "therapy is more effective if you pay for it" theory. Is that analogy too far of a reach?

    Just got mine today, and tested on paper. I like one and my wife likes the other. Lucky me. Yeah, Lizzie - I don't know if the free thing is good or bad for the reviewing. And I think that your testing twice is really a good idea. I'm going to hold off on posting paper impressions for sure, now.

    I have to admit that this is a good marketing strategy - put the samples in the hands of people most likely to buy niche.
