Most Nordstrom SAs are wonderful with samples. Only once did I have a problem with a woman who seemed really put out to soil her hands with perfume, and then she was not generous, only filling the vial half-way up. At one Neiman Marcus, I had to deal with a Tom Ford rep who was stingy, too. Needless to say, I did not buy from him. (He sized me up as non-buyer. Wrong! I ordered from another store.)
Bergdorf is wonderful!!
