    Default CLOSED! 24 members to sample Penhaligon's , USA only

    Thanks to a generous donation of Penhaligon's samples by the Museum Shop at the Yale Center for British Art (contact info for ordering is in post #11), we have 113 samples to send around to 24 Basenoters. A couple are spray decants from testers but almost all are carded 1.5 ml glass vials with dabbers.

    All groups are now closed. Packages will be mailed Monday.

    There may be something left over for backup member or two but I'm not holding my breath!

    Simple rules:

    • Each member may test all the samples in their box. Please be considerate as to how much you use, so that all 6 group members will have juice to test! It isn't fun to receive an empty sample vial.
    • Keep the samples for no longer than 20 days and then pass it to the next member.
    • Please post when you receive and when you mail your package so we can keep track of them.
    • Opinions on the fragrances are welcome but not required.

    Here are the contents of the packages:

    Group 1: 28 samples

    Amaranthine- 1 sample
    Violetta- 1 spray decant (2 ml)

    I would love to sample! As I have No experience whatsoever with anything from Penhaligon's any group would be fine with me .
    I'm curious about Bluebell .The guide hated it and Mimi Gardinia here on BN loves it. Hmmm .
    Will there be any information about where we can order one (or more ) of these fragrances if we fall in love with one(or more)?

    I'd love to be in group #3 or #4 if it isn't too greedy to ask to be in two in a row!

    Ok, so far we have in group 1: FrouFrou, coopmom, and bookwyrmsmith
    and in group 3 we have PerfumedLady.

    It's fine with me if you've done this before with us. It's all new fragrances anyway.

    While there is a lull, let me add the contact information for the Yale Center for British Art Museum Shop where you can buy not only Penhaligon's but also an assortment of really nice art cards, art books and other things that I drool over every time I visit. Oh, and they will ship!

    If you can visit the museum, there is cheap on-street parking with meters; also pricey parking in a dedicated lot right behind the museum (parking in the lot is free on Sundays, though.) And the museum admission is free!

    Museum shop phone: (203) 432-2828

    1080 Chapel Street
    P.O. Box 208280
    New Haven, CT 06520-8280


    I had hoped they would have Sartorial but they did not.

    Do you prefer Elixer or Amaranthine? There is lots of room, only 5 have signed up so far. I'll put you in group 3 with Elixer unless you say otherwise.

    I am brand-new today. Hello!

    I understand that the very newest may not make the list at all, and i'm alright with that. If i do make the list it will be a great chance to sample some things at my leisure. It's mall/strip-mall hell where i live, and between pushy, just-looking-thanks-anyway suburban moms and busy clerks who may or may not be very proficient to begin with... it's hard to get very acquainted with fragrances.

    This is an exciting new world for me, and i'm stoked for the opportunity. Thank you for considering me.

    Aramanthine, group 1 or 2 please.

    (Much respect to suburban moms!)

    portzblitz you are in group 1, and welcome to Basenotes! Having newly joined you will probably be the last of the 6 to get the package but it will be worth it!

    P.S. I'm a suburban mom LOLOL!

    Roses, Amaranthine, please. I hear this is Penhaligon's "sexy" scent.

    I'm adding Twolf to group 2 (tentatively) and warum to group 3. I know they did want to be in the groups.

    Force of One, you are in group 4 then!
