    Default Trying fragrances for free

    I was just browsing The Fragrance Shop and noticed they now run a scheme whereby you can try fragrances out for 'free'.

    I thought that people here may be interested.

    Sounds like a good marketing idea.

    Perhaps they got sick of people returning used/open bottles.

    In some ways a good idea as they're assuring they'll get back unopened/unused boxes/bottles and I'm sure they're hoping it'll generating more orders/sales.

    Believe it or not, when I purchase something a new perfume for my GF, from places like Saks or Neimans and several select online places, I always request a sample. This way she gets to try it before opening the bottle, making the return much simpler.

    To me, this is a great way of insuring, if you do not like it, you will not be hassled about returning an opened package.

    Its ingenious.

    And out of fairness, postage should be on the customer.

    Because had the customer not had this option, they would've paid for postage anyways. And return postage should also e on the customer to avoid abuse. A person goes through this with the intention of trying only.
    for swap/sale:

    I would guess that return postage would be on the buyer. It would only make perfect sense if they decided to return, the buyer pay the postage back.
