Weil to my nose is on a par with Chanel and Guerlain, with a particular genius for the animalic. Zibeline is a spicy, heliotrope laden blast from the past, originally intended to scent furs—as it does my mom's mink. Weil de Weil is a bitter green floral, drying down with those florals intact burnished by civet and leather. Featuring narcissus and hyacinth prominently, it is a perfect early spring fragrance. Bittergracenotes summed it up perfectly, "it is the smell of a swamp in Paradise."
    Hello jujy -

    I'd love to try a bit of Zibeliene.

    I'd love even a tiny sniff of the weil's if possible. Huge vintage, green and animalic fan!

    Hey Jujy!

    I just got my Zibeline PDT in the mail today, but I would love to smell the Weil de Weil!

    Thanks!

    PS. I've become so interested in Weil, I've ordered the Weil Pour Homme to see how it fairs since it was reformulated. Crossing fingers!

    This set just came in the mail from another member( thank you). It's a delightful perfume set of mini perfumes called Miss Vietnam. The fragrances are not my style and I wanted to offer it to someone else to try that is in the USA. Just be the first to PM me your name and address and it's yours!
    I am moving at the end of this week,so,I will try to get them out before Friday.

    Thanks,

    Wow, lucky you indeed! I love vintage Weil Noir and am just starting to explore the others.
    Not sure if you ship out of the US but I would love a sniff of anything you're able to spare.

    Oh dear jujy54 I don't know if I've inadvertently misled you into thinking I'm sitting on a reservoir of Noir! I'm nowhere as fortunate as you - I do love it but all I have is a tiny parfum bottle and what's left just about covers its base so I honestly don't even know how much I'm going to be able to get out of there. I hope you'll understand - and even if I do send you anything it's going to be such a laughably pathetic smidgen. I'm really very, very sorry about that... perhaps you should pass those Weil decants to someone more deserving than me!

    A smidgen is fin, rowan-. I've sent tiny samples of scarce or dear stuff by dampening a cotton ball and putting it in a tiny Zip-Loc bag, then double bagging. You're still getting your decants, no worries.

    OK, the Weil sampling has filled up. If your post precedes this one, you're in. Please pm me an address and whether you want one, the other, or both.

    jujy54, thank you so much! Shall I send you a few drops in a vial so you can try it on skin? I'd like to know what you think of it, especially since so little has been written about it online and you've evidently got much more experience with vintage Weils than I. I have to add that I work highly irregular hours so it may be a few days before I make it to the post office... but I will get there.

    I don't want to monopolize or take too much advantage of your kindness, but I would be very interested in trying the CB I Hate Perfume samples, if no other takers.

    I have a really cute mini of Guerlain La Petite Robe Noire, if anyone wants it. Also a large deluxe sample vial of Hermes Vetiver Tonka. Plus a random assortment of smaller samples that I will include with the other two. Prefer to ship within the U.S., please.

    Oh, I feel bad for asking since I've received a few freebies already, but may I have the LPRN mini if no one else asks for it? Minis are so adorable (and I actually have room for them in my apartment. Augh, not enough space!) Feel free to disregard me if you'd rather wait for someone else, I would understand completely.

    rowan-, of all things, there was an auction for 1/2 full mini of Noir Parfum, out of UK. I know my limit, so one one hand, I lost, on the other handI helped raise the price for the seller (; and can feel some relief at the shekels that are still in my pocket (;

    D'you know what, jujy54, I was looking at that same auction, and watching my hopes of replenishing Noir slip away rather quickly. I suppose there are folks who want Noir more badly than we do! Anyway you're still getting that little sample - don't forget to PM your address when you're able to.

    No problem! Family comes first! Prayers and thoughts going out to your Family.
    I got my Weil Pour Homme in and will get a sample to you as soon as possible. It smells similar to something that I can't put my finger on, but I like it a lot! I hope you will too!
    I will also get you the Set of Miss Vietnam frags too.

    Here's a seasonally appropriate offer for a fellow violet lover: Yardley April Violets soap (100g, very strongly scented) and talc (200g, a few years old, tin is a bit dented but nearly full).

    UK only please, and it may take a few days for me to post them, but they will get to you
