    Default 10 to sample Orange Blossom & Pomegranate Noir, USA only

    The groups are all closed now.


    Packages were mailed on 3/14/11

    Order of shipping (asterisk indicates who has the box, or who it's been shipped to)

    Group 1:
    bogsc
    *inscents

    Group 2:
    Twolf
    *Warum

    Group 3:

    Group 5:

    I visited Nordstom again tonight, and sales associate Jennifer kindly shared 10 more Jo Malone spray samples, about 1.5 ml each, for BNers to try.

    I have 5 samples each of Orange Blossom and Pomegranate Noir.

    I'd like to do the same thing we did last time-- 5 groups with two members each.
    I'll mail to the first 5, who can sample for a week and then send to the second five, who will keep the samples.

    Takers?

    Anyone: guys and newbies included.

    I'm off to bed, but feel free to post if you are interested. Room for 10 USA members.

    By the way the small bubble mailers I use for these only cost $1.22 in postage to send to the next person; (EDIT: Sometimes it's $1.39 if 2 oz.; just look at whatever postage is already on the package when you receive it.) You don't even need to take a trip to the P.O.-- just stick on the stamps, drop the packet in a mailbox, and you're good to go.

    30-R, you're awesome. I'm going to skip this one, but you're the best 'fumie in the world.

    I haven't tried much (any?) Jo Malone so I'd love to try these 2. Posting on the Hermes sample group thread shortly about status of my poor sniffer.

    Please include me. I do not know if Warum is in, but I would like to send to her -- I have something else to include, and I will be having a package from you anyhow in a week or two, should not be very heavy. To save on S&H. Please?

    30 R, I just wanted to say "thanks" for giving us the opportunity to try new scents. I've tried both of these, but i've been the recipient of your kindness in past sample-groups, and I really appreciate your efforts. You're a sweetheart!

    Thanks, ladies...I do enjoy these little groups myself (especially when people post their impressions).

    It's nice when SAs are willing to donate stuff for the groups, too, particularly as many people live where they don't have access to perfume counters that carry anything other than the usual designer fragrances. An some live rurally and aren't near any large stores.

    Bogsc, you will be #1 in Group 1.
    Twolf, you're #1 in Group 2. If Warum joins I'll have you send to her.

    Room for 8 more.

    30 Roses, I would love to be included. I've been wanting to sample both of these for some time. Count me in!


    And thanks so much for setting this up.

    Twolf will ship to Warum, then.
    Room for 5 more.

    Ladies, I will be away from the computer (my mother is coming over for supper) but just keep posting if you want to join us. Guys too.

    I bought a deadly looking dessert called a "cannoli cake". My arteries are clogging just looking at it. I will have to take a photo.
    If I never return, you will know that I died happy.

    There:

    Nope, just use a half of the sample that 30 Roses mails to you and send the other person the second half when you're done.

    Yes, you are the second member of group 3; please send your address to ExtremeKF.

    I mailed the packages this morning. They weighed 0.8 to 0.9 oz; postage to ship to the second person will be $1.22.

    Room for 2 more!

    I have samples of both of these, and can I just say, the pomegranate is GREAT to be used under their other scents. It adds a depth and a spice to the lighter smells. I have to review the last two yet, and will do so with and without the Pom.

    30Roses, do I send the last two back? I'd love for some people to be able to try them layered. From what I understand of JoMalone (thanks to Nordstroms as well), they really are designed to be both worn alone and layered. The fun starts to come in with designing different combinations.

    elizrj, if someone wishes to try that, you could send them to that member (I've already mailed out these.) Otherwise, they are yours to keep.
