    Default Samples

    Best place to get them? Perfumed Court is good but their shipping is crazy. Thanks

    Perfumed Court shipping isn't that bad, unless one is getting just one or two samples.

    P.S. They might charge you $5.49 for shipping when you place your order. But, they'll take it off and adjust your total later on.

    I am as well! If I could afford it, it'd be no problem. Unfortunately that's not the case.

    The only samples that pass through my hands are the ones included with a bottle purchase.

    Try doing swaps with people. Buy some full bottles of things you still like anyway, then find people with big wardrobes and offer to swap decants for whatever pile of half used samples they no longer want. You're probably looking for specific things but this might still yeild you some interesting results.

    Most of the time I am very proud of the Basenotes community. Time after time I have witnessed the thoughtfulness, empathy & genuine friendship that members of this community extend to others - oldtimers & newcomers alike. There are other times, however, when egos get the upper hand and civility goes out the window. My philosophy is that I won't say anything here that I would not say if you were standing in front of me. Welcome to Basenotes, each and every one of us. ~ TwoRoads

    Oh, and I suggest Fragrancevials and Luckyscent. They're my main two places.

    I use them all the time. The inventory they have is extensive and they carry some very rare fragrances. I have dealt with them and they are very nice people. The shipping method is unusual but if you read their introduction, they explain why. You also choose the amount of the sample you want be it 1.5, 5ml 8 etc. Good business model. For me, Luckyscents shipping is brutally expensive and Aedes doesnt ship here.

    Scented Monkey is the way to go. They don't have anything fancy (no Creed, no Chanel, nothing niche generally), but it's pretty cheap.

    For me (international post), five dollars for up to 15 samples isn't what I'd consider brutally expensive. And it's pretty fast too - normally less than a week to New Zealand.

    For more than 15 samples it's cheaper to start another order instead of stepping up to the next shipping tier at $28, otherwise you don't break even on the shipping until about 90(!) samples.

    Hmm - perhaps that's for US orders only? Different price too, from the shipping page:

    Just did a purchase on fragrancevials, they have pretty nice scents now.
    Hopefully they'll stay on business and keep getting more samples.
    We want a 'Niche' forum.
