    I think we all give away stuff behind the scenes, Brian. The other ladies and I do for sure and no doubt many of you men do as well.

    I think what the mods are trying to avoid is a situation where a gesture intended to create community and goodwill becomes something else, something that makes people upset with each other.

    If everyone minds their manners it can work.

    Having observed the general interaction of Basenotes members for many years, it is quite obvious that the guys behavior leaves much to be desired as compared to the ladies, particularly where sales and swaps are concerned. As there are 5+ times as many male threads as there are from the ladies and 3-4 times as many male posts, the number of male caused marketplace type issues is far greater than those proportions. Maybe 100 to 1 or more. So yes, it will be watched and yes, decants may be given away.

    PS- this is not an open forum for outing bad swappers or any other topic as several such posts were just deleted.

    Whenever generosity of time and fragrance are concerned, heavy regulation must be defined and enforced. Otherwise who knows what chaos will ensue? Next thing you know, I might even split more than one bottle at a time!

    Come on show a bit of initiative.
    It should be quite clear that trading sex for samples is perfectly acceptable within the regulations of the thread. (As long as it is only man on man sex. If women want to jump on the bandwagon the thread will have to be moved from Male Fragrance Discussion and you can imagine how complicated that could get.

    I am glad this finally got set up. I have asked several times for this, and it always got shot down. STUIGI- You did a great job of walking the tightrope and figuring this out...Thanks. Sometimes if I happen to see a frag. that I have, listed in someone's "to test" or "want" list in their wardrobe, I P.M. them and offer a free sample, so keep your lists up to date!!!

    But ground shipping is only available to the lower 48.

    Technically the USPS says perfumes can only go by ground, and some BNers stick to that. I will send bubble mailers with samples by air, as our local P.O. seems to be okay with it, but I have even received samples shipped by ground from some members.

    I didn't want the samples. I just wanted to express how AK and HI are often excluded, despite the fact that we do have ground shipping available to here, according to my source. I always ship my fragrances to the lower 48 via airmail thereby breaking their ridiculous rules. If it's ok for stewardesses to sell us duty free fragrances in the cabin, and we are allowed frags in our checked luggage, despite the obvious huge risk this poses to the safety of the airplane, then i don't understand why we cannot send our packages too.
    As an example of the ridiculous shipping rules, my husband today attempted to order 2 lightbulbs online, that weren't in Lowes or Home Depot, the cost of the bulbs was 12 dollars: shipping was quoted at 108.50, or 195.84 for next day delivery. Needless to say, we'll stay "in the dark"
    Sorry to go off on a shipping rant tangent, but there I am claiming shipping doesn't cost any more to send here, when retailers target us mercilessly. I do apologise.

    CLAIMED by ChiefWiggum

    While tidying recently I came across some spray samples, decanted last year from Penhaligon's tester bottles, that I'd misplaced.

    Free to anyone in the USA:

    Samples in varying amounts of: Elixer, Racquets Formula, Endymion, Quercus, Opus 1870 and Hammam Bouquet (very little remaining of that one.)

    Maybe this is a weird question, but what's the honorable thing to do feedback-wise? Are those who claim a freebie expected to leave positive "seller" feedback to the BNer who offered and shipped the frag? Or do we just leave it alone since it's a freebie?
