    You asked for free samples that have to be shipped internationally?

    I am thinking about ordering Lumiere Noire pour femme blind... just thinking...because it's expensive thing to buy half-blind.
    When I was in London I smelled all the scents at Liberty but only once.
    I respect Cologne pour la Soire but I am content with my Bois d'argent.
    I think I like Rose Barbare the best from Kurkdjian's fatalic feminine scents: Narcizo Rodriguez for her, Lady vengeance, Lumiere Noire pour femme and Rose Barbare. They all are very good but Rose Barbare I think suits me best. But it has a great drawback - very expensive: I think more than 150 Euro.
    I like how Kurkdjian talks about his fragrance line - he sais that luxury is in details. So he should put all his creativeness and aesthetics in Lumiere Noire. it should be his favorite..

    Their response is aimed more at those many requests they receive asking for free samples.
    Best thing to do is to write back and explain that you had no wish to ask for free samples, and that you would be delighted to pay for them. They may then be able to do something, or alternately, just order a bunch from luckyscent.

    Of course the best thing is to get them free. If not, it would be good to order them all for a reasonable price.
    But I think if you make an order, so with the purchase they could give some free samples.

    If you're gonna pay for samples, might as well order them from Luckyscent or The Perfumed Court. They're reasonably priced.

    Lots of companies will send free samples internationally upon request, but I think it was an understandable response since the line is so new and they are probably getting lots of requests at the moment. I hope they do set up some kind of affordable sampling program, because I'd love to try them.

    Thanks, DreamerII, for letting us know.

    Just a quick off-topic question to Dimitri: Why are you selling Cologne Pour le Soir? I recall you were raving about it, not too long ago.

    Just curious...

    IMO Aedes is the best place to get MFK samples, that's where I ordered mine from.

    I am curious either.
    When I smelled Cologne pour le soir, I thought that it's nice, but I don't want and need transparent ambery incensy scent. If I am in the mood for something ambery, oriental, I go for heavy deep thick scents, for example Tobacco Vanille, Chergui etc.

    I have kept a quantity for myself and the remainder is up for grabs. I adore it, but cant see me using 200ml of it any time soon. Its now an opportunity for a fellow member or members to buy/split a bottle at a reduced price.
    In recent weeks, you might have noticed a sizeable purge of 70% of my collection in my sales thread. I want to keep things trim 'n' tidy.
