    Just a warning about sending. The UK postage rules have tightened up as of the 15th Jan 2013, and sending frags from the UK to overseas is now prohibited and you risk them getting taken and destroyed. Sending within the UK is still allowed until further notice in July.

    It means no more international samples can be sent...... Oils are fine as far as I understand it, as are solid perfumes. I think it is the alcohol based frags that are prohibited. See here.

    And here.

    Actually after looking into it more I don't think I would even like it. Lol. I shouldn't take it when someone who might really like it could have it. Thank you though!

    I know the following contributions pale in comparison to big time givers here, but I have this package of samples to send out before I go on vacation next week:

    --------- C L A I M E D --------------
    Apuldre by Molton Brown (official/carded sample) - sprayed/used, about 1.5ml left
    Antaeus (current formulation) by Chanel - sprayed/used, about 0.7 ml left
    Azzaro Pour Homme by Azzaro - used, sprayed once or twice
    Egoiste EDT (current formulation, decanted from my wardrobe) by Chanel
    Elixir by Penhaligon's (vial, sample pass from kalli)
    ---------- C L A I M E D -------------

    First one to PM me with a Continental USA (CON-US) address gets the package.

    And we can't forget about Lisa (@SaNielsen) who's always posting a new fragrance pack.

    And also thanks to those who specify if the offer is CONUS/UK/etc so I don't rush for nothing everytime I get a notification

    Lisa is wonderful. She was my first experience with the community. I must admit I was a bit nervous about sharing personal information after just a week (it might have been more, but I was brand-spanking new), but the whole interaction was top-notch, and I even made out with two more samples than the one I had expressed interest in.

    Big kudos to her (again)!

    I haven't. I think they would send your packages back to you if they did, wouldn't they?

    Maybe, but to them it would be in violation. All I know is nobody has been getting the samples I sent. " sorry guys i have no clue why!" I sent some out the 12th and 13th.

    No Canadian Giveaways? I might host some in the future for Canada and US (If no Canadians want anything)

    Seems we got some people here on BN, and in this thread in particular, who never learned the concepts of sharing, or fairness.
    Some of the same people are on here grabbing the relatively few samples that are offered.
    During Nov-Dec I sent out samples (usually 2 or 3 different ones) to 9 people, using this thread.
    I am quite surprised to read some of the more recent posts and see that 4 of the 9 guys I sent samples to are on here snapping up more... while never themselves offering up anything.
    Look guys.... this thread hasn't exactly been bustling with activity of people offering free samples. They are quite few and far between. So don't you think the right thing to do, if you have already received samples from me or someone else, would be to let some new people have a crack at something here? Or at least offer up some freebies yourself???
    Just being a repeat "taker" is not cool, especially when what is available to take is limited.
    There. I'm done venting. And hopefully folks will take what I've said to heart.

    What about requiring giversaway that they list the user, and have a rule that you can only receive a giveaway once every 3 months or something.

    There. I'm done venting. And hopefully folks will take what I've said to heart.
    And whats even more annoying is seeing people get a free bottle of something and then putting that bottle on their swap/sale thread. When FISS80 was so generous and gave away over a $1000 worth of frags, I saw one of the recipients(I have given this same person a free bottle AND a sample package) immediately had it on their thread trying to get the most from it(it was a very pricey bottle). If they didnt like what they received they should have put it back on this thread instead for someone else to try.

    Ill admit I have received several freebies from this thread, but I have also offered multiple items as well and not just samples. Not trying to glorify myself by saying that, I just feel if you are going to receive then you should be willing to give as well. Im glad you brought this up BigSteve because I feel the same way as you do about this. I have a feeling that this topic will be the downfall of this thread though. There are always the few who ruin it for the many. Spock said it best "The needs of the many out way the needs of the few, or the one." STOP BEING SO GREEDY

    This is already the rule. If you give something away you are supposed to list who you gave it away to in the original posted offer.

    US Only. I want to try shipping to the states before I put up some frags for sale so I'm offering a official sample set from Huitième Art for one person. The sample set includes the following: Vohina, Naiviris, Myrrhiad, Manguier Metisse, Fareb, Ciel d`Airain, Aube Pashmina, Ambre Ceruleen. They are all 2ml vials with 1-2 sprays missing each.

    Claimed by NYCBoomBoom.

    *Because this is my first time trying to ship internationally so I will not hold responsible for lost or damage package. However, I really want to know if it arrives so please tell me when you receive it. Thank you

    I have one (new) Bond No. 9 New York Oud sample size bon bon to give away to anyone in the USA.
    You can do whatever you like with it-- wear it, trade it, pour it on your pancakes if you like -- if I give it to you, it is yours, period.

    First to PM me with your address (if I don't already have it) gets it. I will post the name of the recipient here. Also listed it on the ladies' forum thread.
