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.
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.

I'm not OLD...I'm VINTAGE!
I go to alot of estate sales and pick up men's as well as women's fragrances. So right now, I have the following that need good homes; shipping to CONUS only please:

Keep missing this thread when it gets bumped
I wish I could rep all the people sending samples though.

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!
50ml VERA WANG FOR MEN

Hard work never killed anyone, but why risk it?
Awesome to see this, I guess you guys only send stuff within the USA?
Okay I'll keep that in mind, thanks guys !
I received the decants from furrypine in the mail today! Thank you good sir!
I have a tiny sample of Bond no 9 New York Oud. PM please if anyone wants it.

more to come, no doubt, as I have gone a bit niche-nuts sample-wise. Lisa

Man Trex, those were some awesome lots for those in Europe! I hope everyone enjoys!

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.
Thanks guys, you make us BN members from Europe feel welcome !
I snoozed and losed again!!!!
This is an awesome thread. I'm surprised there isn't more buzz around this.
Received samples from SaNielsen over the weekend.
Thanks a lot!
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.
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!
