    Default Sample Recs for Luscious Cargo

    Ok guys, I need your help. I've never bought anything through Lusciouscargo, but I would like to take advantage of their sample policiy of 8 for 21, seems good to me. There are a bunch of houses I know of but many I have never heard of or explored. Can you guys give me some recs to fill up the 8 slots. I like green, aromatic, fresh, etc. but am open to any suggestion. Thanks guys.

    I ordered samples from them before and they completely ignored my order and subsequent inquiries...horrible customer services.

    Yes, I would recommend calling them if you plan on ordering. Their website falsely shows things as in stock.

    As far as samples go, I would recommend the mens Divine offerings Sage & Coeur. Could samples some Fracas to get to know tuberose too?

    Good to know, I actually decided at the last second, that I would use Aedes to order the samples, because there were more things that interested me there, and it was slightly cheaper. In the end, I ended up getting:

    Annick Goutal: Eau du Sud
    By Kilian: Prelude to Love
    Carthusia: IO Capri
    L'Artisan: Fleur de Liane
    Maitre Perfumeur et Gantier: Garrigue
    Parfums Delrae: Eau Illuminee
    Santa Maria Novella: Nostalgia

    Many of the above, I have either heard a lot of good things about, or have been on the "to try" list for a while. Hopefully I get a couple of winners in there.

    Sorry to hear you had that experience! I've only had wonderful experiences with them. Marcy and team is a pleasure to work with and they're totally great to talk to. Her packaging is pretty fantastic too - dried flowers, lavender, sachets, etc. You should try to give them a call and see what happened - I'm sure it was an accident

    I actually ordered a sample set last night after being reminded of it by this thread. Hopefully it'll arrive soon - turns out the owner of it lives right up the road from me!

    Anyways, here's what I ordered:

    |A*MAZE Perfume The People of The Labyrinths

    |Luctor et Emergo Perfume The People of The Labyrinths

    |Luctor et Emergo Eau de Toilette The People of The Labyrinths

    |Ambre Precieux MPG

    |Centaure EDT MPG

    |Parfum D'Habit MPG

    |Santal Noble Maitre Parfumeur et Gantier

    |Tabacco i Profumi di Firenze

    They've also got The Different Company fragrances (Bois d'Iris, Rose Poivree). The MPGs and SMNs people suggested are very good.

    I literally sent them 3 or 4 emails, and even from different accounts to make sure there wasn't a technical issue. The last email was telling them how much their customer service sucked, and they didn't even acknowledge it.

    I posted my concerns at the time, and heard numerous stories that were similar...when there are so many great online perfume shops out there, I have a hard time making a 2nd attempt at one that offered such poor services...it's unacceptable. Aedes, Luckyscent, Four Seasons, and Beauty Habit all offer the same brands and are easy to work with.
