    When I have posted free samples here, people PM me saying what they'd like to try. If I still have the item, I PM the person back and get their address. If more than one person wants the same thing, the winner will be the one who contacted me first (the PMs you get will have the date and time they were sent).
    And as soon as one of my items is claimed, and I have the person's address so I know they are serious, I go back and edit my original post offering the samples, and type "claimed" for those samples that have been requested and are no longer available.

    As far as you seeking samples for yourself, I suppose you can post that "wishlist" here. Not sure, though. That may be up to the admin/originator of this thread.

    Thanks bigsteve, got my samples in the mail a couple days ago. (Dreamer and Bleu de Chanel). Like the Chanel, and you saved me from blind buying the Dreamer (wasn't a big fan of that one). My wallet and I both thank you.

    Stuigi addresses the posting of requests/wish lists in post #1:

    "NOTE- Requests are not allowed here, as doing so would be outside the marketplace rules and allowing it would lead to requests from those who do not meet marketplace requirements."

    Do you want to try Phoenix by Keith Urban?

    The notes are blackberries, cognac, plum, suede accord, dates, dark chocolate, fir balsam, musk, cashmere woods, tonka bean. It's an interesting gourmand but a little too synthetic for me. I'm offering up 5 decants a 2,5 ml to try to finish the bottle.

    It sells for less than $30 in the States but it was never released elsewhere as far as I know; so I will ship the decants worldwide except to the US, since you guys have easy and cheap access to it. Please PM me if you are interested.

    UPDATE: All decants claimed!

    Perfume for you or your wife?

    I have a decent sized 5ml sample of L'Eau de Monteil by Monteil EdP up for grabs. Just PM me with your address! It's a bit to sweet and aquatic for me, but a pleasant scent.

    Sorry US or Canada Only.

    CLAIMED

    As i'm currently in the US i'd like to give this to a US BN'r. I liked it enough to buy on impulse and I still like it but it's a bit young for me, if I was Benjamin Button i'd keep it for future use! Quite sexy in fact and would suit a guy under 30 who is looking for luuuurve! First one to pm me gets it!

    I guess people prefer to send stuff within their own country to keep postage costs down, although if somebody is desperate I would probably ship anywhere.

    Yeah... nice job trex57!
    It's a shame this thread/giveaway idea is not really getting much traction. It doesn't appear there are many of us who are willing to make the effort to help out others here. Like you, I get a kick out of helping fellow fragheads.
    And will be sending another mailing to Europe this week.

    First of all thanks for your kind words.

    As for the traction, you're right but maybe it'll pick up soon. Ill be doing it again.

    I received some very nice samples from furrypine earlier in the month, so I'm paying it forward now! (Well, not the same samples, but you know what I mean :P )

    I've got five 1-mL boxed manufacturer samples for one person in Canada (still not sure about navigating customs, so I'll stick to my home country for now.) Here's the catch—they're all "feminine" scents. Maybe your girlfriend/wife/friend who is a girl and likes fragrances can give them a try, or maybe you'd like to give them a shot.

    I have:
    Elie Saab le Parfum EdT
    Elie Saab le Parfum EdP
    Narciso Rodriguez for Her EdT
    Narciso Rodriguez for Her EdP
    Gaultier Classique EdT

    Not the most niche of samples, but I do what I can!
    Fire me a PM if you're in Canada and are interested.

    Update: claimed! Thanks!
