    Default Men's GIVEAWAY thread- NO REQUESTS ALLOWED! Revised 1/29/13

    Offering samples and bottles for free will be allowed here. Let's see if we can do this without asking for sample shipping costs. If someone offers samples and then later receives some, the costs should be a wash. Shipping samples in a small sandwich type baggie and then placing them in a bubble wrap envelope should cost no more than $2.00 U.S. Bottle shipping requests must be for typical shipping costs. Even though the bottles are free please pack them carefully! This should be a fun and conflict free experience. Please do not ask for more than one freebie per month. We do not want "freebie hogs" to ruin the experience for everyone else. 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. Please state to whom you have sent samples. Some reply by PM so no one knows who got them. We want to be able to see if anyone is "hogging" the sample giveaway. Regarding shipping out of one's country- Although some have no problem with this, it is certainly not an obligation. Some must wait on line at an actual post office to do so as opposed to being able to ship domestically from an annex. So let's not disparage those who state CONUS or EU ONLY, for example.

    All responses to giveaways should be public so there is no question as to who was first. It may be wise to first post publicly and then follow with a PM with one's address.

    Great idea, I'll be happy to offer samples from my small wardrobe for UK users - but before that I'll need to see what empty sample bottles I have so I can say what I can offer. Free postage is fine - it should only cost about 60p ($1) in the UK.

    Is it OK to say something like "I can offer 10 assorted samples from my wardrobe - pick one you want and ask me"? or is that too close to the market place prohibition? (As an alternative, would it be better, say, to list something specific and say "I'm offering the following specific samples..."?)

    I would think anyone could participate.

    Just as the thread on the female forum leans toward offering fragrances marketed to women (but men who wish to try them are welcome to accept the offers), I would think this thread will be geared toward masculines-- but if women wish to try them, why not?

    I think most of us here on BN are not so very rigid about gender categorization of fragrances anyway.

    For that matter, if I have leftover men's samples to offer (from my husband's stash), I'll offer them here instead of on the thread on the female forum.

    I'd love to try out Pure Malt. I'm really new to collecting, so I'd really appreciate being able to try something like that before buying it. My collection is something like six bottles now, three of which I rarely use.

    OctaVariuM,

    I can send you batch 1 with Pure Malt and the other samples; you don't have any fragrances listed in your wardrobe so there is no test list for me to look at....

    Please PM me your name and address and I'll mail it tomorrow.

    I think 30Roses makes a vailid point gentelemen. Some of the BN ladies might like to sample some more masculine scents or offer samples of their own and should be allowed to participate in our "Free To A Good Home" or whatever you want to call it. I have wanted to try some more femme frags and was welcomed in the ladies forum. Tit for Tat.

    Not so complicated, really...list it for free and you're good. On the ladies thread we give away bottles too.

    As stuigi pointed out, sooner or later when you accept someone else's offer, the free shipping comes back to benefit you.

    1. Ladies are of course welcome
    2. NO bottles
    3. NO requests as stated- that is reserved for the marketplace board with requirements
    4. Offering 10 samples but allowing one per person is one's prerogative (obviously more shipping costs)

    Is there a reason why people can't offer bottles they no longer want? Would that just fall into the marketplace area? Cause, to be honest, the 500 posts thing is going to keep some people from being able to unload bottles via BN. As I've said before, it doesn't really apply to me, I'm just curious.

    Enforcement of the marketplace rules and requirements has succeeded(with few exceptions as compared to the early years of Basenotes) in protecting members from losing large amounts of money in bottle sales or swaps.

    That makes sense, but if it's free, how could someone get screwed out of money? Sure, a bottle may cost an extra dollar to ship versus some samples, but I'm not seeing the overlap between preventing fraud in the marketplace and the lack of bottle gifting in this thread.

    Default Re: Men's sample swap thread

    Free bottle offers here could easily turn into swap offers. It sets a precedent for doing so outside the marketplace swap board. This is the way the marketplace was set up and there is no reason to change it. PM me if you wish to discuss it further.

    We girls never have a problem giving away. It's the requesting part that seems to be the turning point. Just offer and then a taker arrives happily. I think it must be if there is any possibility of someone getting unhappy over something wonderfully nice. Swaps are two way and giving is one way only.

    Sorry, I just assumed about the bottles, since we ladies have done it on our thread for some time now without any problem.

    But guys, the reason it has worked on the ladies' forum is precisely because it is a free gift with no strings attached, no expectation of compensation.

    That sort of generosity is the engine that drives our thread; it creates good will and more generosity. Once you start expecting something in return, it's dead. Just saying!

    Edit: mumsy and I think alike!

    ok- Please see the thread title name change and revised rules in the first post! We will allow free samples and bottles to be given away on the men's board on a trial basis. The thread will be carefully watched. Once again, no requests please.

    How do I distinguish between a sample and a decant? Can I give away decants?

    And what if I don't like the person who has requested my samples? Can I wait for someone else to come along?

    Can I trade sex for samples?

    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!

    Satire aside, I've been giving away samples to BN members by the truckload. Does that really need rules, too? Giving things away needs to have rules? I have to say it twice because it's hard to believe.

    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.

    Default Re: Men's sample GIVEAWAY thread

    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.

    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.

    Oh, alright then..... without any of the the forementioned....who would like a sample of:-

    Tom Ford - White patchouli = GONE
    Tom Ford - Santal Blush = GONE

    Both sprays, with a squirt or two gone.

    - - - Updated - - -

    That was quick on the draw... I will have a rummage for some more things...

    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?
