    30 Roses, Thanks so much!
    I tried two of the Penhaligon fragrances last year but that was my pre-basenotes life, so did not pay enough attention!
    I can make up for that now!

    Good!

    Okay here is how it stands right now (did a little rearranging so first to post get samples first):

    Group 1 (room for 2 more): FrouFrou, bookwyrmsmith, coopmom, portzblitz (who will be last in this group as newly joined today.)
    Group 2 (room for 4 more): Twolf (tentatively unless she prefers Elixer), Primrose (I bumped you up, girl!)
    Group 3 (room for 2 more): PerfumedLady, Al Gae, N. Tesla, warum
    Group 4 (room for 3 more): emflores26, Hillaire, Force of One

    I'm off to bed. Will check in the morning. Keep on posting to join!

    I've got basically no experience with Penhaligons.. make that actually none (I had to look, I thought I had perhaps tested one).. and I'd love to check them out. I don't even have any experience with most of the more restrained English houses like them. Also, a handful of their scents are done by Duchaufour, and that's definitely enough to get me excited!

    I'd like to be in the Elixir group if possible, thank you!

    Just FYI, I'm pretty excited about the possibility of mailing fragrances to N. Tesla. I'm quite a fan of the scientist myself.

    I'd love to be included, but I'll be busy with wedding stuff for a while and need to be at the end of a group if that's okay, and I'd like to try Elixir. Thanks 30 Roses!

    One or two is fine, I can be in G1 between the newest P in MI and Evangeline in WI -- geographically we are closest and you will have Group 1 completed.

    Wolfie, didn't you want to be in an Elixir group? Am I confused?

    1 and 2 are Amaranthine groups and 3 and 4 are Elixer groups. (Evangeline is in an Elixer group.) You are 1st in line in group 2 for Amaranthine but there is room in both Elixer groups if that was the fragrance you wanted to try. Sorry, I know this is a bit of a muddle!

    So far:

    Group 1 (room for 2 more):
    1. FrouFrou
    2. bookwyrmsmith
    3. coopmom
    4. suz894
    5.
    6. portzblitz (who will be last in this group as newly joined yesterday)

    Group 2 (room for 5 more):
    1. Twolf
    2. Primrose
    3.
    4.
    5.
    6.


    Group 3 :
    1. PerfumedLady
    2. Al Gae
    3. N. Tesla
    4. warum
    5.
    6. Evangeline (who needs to be last)

    Group is closed Group 4:
    1. emflores26
    2. Hillaire
    3. Force of One
    4. SculptureofSoul
    5. kbe
    6. archelon



    We still have room for more! I'll post on Just Starting Out.

    "Are you a man?"
    "No"

    If there's still room, I'd like to participate. I have no experience with any of the scents so whichever group remains works for me.

    I'm rather excited myself! I'll ship on Monday-- hopefully all the groups will be filled by then.

    I really want to try this again with other manufacturer samples, after this one is over. I think others (Creed, Lutens, Diptyque, Malle, others?) may be interested in donating if we say what we are doing with the fragrances. But I'm getting ahead of myself here.

    I think we may have a shot with Diptyque,particularly if we call the New York boutique.They seem to be very accomodating.
    30 Roses,this is no small undertaking you have accomplished,and in such an organized manner!I can't thank you enough and I'm sure everyone here feels the same!

    This is easy. When my daughter was 3 years old (and clamoring for attention whenever I was on the phone) I was in charge of arranging housing for about 100 people, in the homes of local church members. People were traveling from all over for a conference, some were couples, and I had to match up the hosts' housing and transportation from airports availability with the guests needs, and give them directions as well. Now that was nuts.

    I'm thinking back...I didn't have either a computer or cell phone back then.. whatever possessed me to volunteer for that? LOL

    Yay! You are # 5 in group 3 and you need to send your address to warum.

    Elixer groups are now closed but there is still room in groups 1 and 2, which also have masculine scents.
