    Question Where to buy samples of hard to find frgrances at low prices?

    Hi there, my name's Alex and I'm new here Nice to meet you.

    Anyways, I was reading a few boards, and it came up that The Perfumed Court is considered an expensive place to buy perfume samples. Is there any other website that sells small decants that is less expensive? I live in the suburbs currently so there's almost nowhere nearby where I can sample niche fragrances...

    Depends On what you're looking for.

    I agree about TPC, and I have used from them before.

    To be honest, they are an alternative to traveling far to sample. TPC makes money off of each small sample they sell.

    That said, I have always found good service.

    TPC and Luckyscent are reliable

    I'm new at this, too, but I've had good luck recently with The Posh Peasant and Surrender to Chance (as mentioned above), and also Lucky Scent. I've also used TPC for a couple of orders recently. Was ok, but I was pretty disappointed by how long order processing and shipping took with both orders. Especially compared to the other three sites. Don't know if others have had the same experience or if it was just me and those two orders.

    For less expensive options it's worth checking out if a company has a sample pack. These are often cheaper than buying the samples individually via the website mentioned above. Apart from this you could get an account on makeupalley and start swapping for samples - it's the cheapest way of getting to know new fragrances.
