    Default How does a person begin a sample pass?

    Does someone who loves a house just start by putting together a packet of samples and getting some signups?

    Pretty much, one prepares some samples, and then asks in a forum who is interested and makes a list of people. The number of people depends on the size of the sample. I think one ml samples can last up to 5 people.

    Thanks for asking, danieq and for the reply, cacio. I thought of starting a sample pass, too, when I finish my Jasmine Sniff-Fest thread.

    That sounds like a fun one Scentfan.

    It would be fun to do a note-centric pass. I wonder if that gets done? The ones I've seen have been centered on a particular house but perhaps it's not always so.

    Ooooh, this is a very exciting idea!

    There have been sample passes of various types, from houses, to notes, to types of frags/styles, etc. In any case, there's no rule - whatever sounds interesting.

    I think we are the only forum on the net with the passes. Or, we have been first to do so. There are no strict regulations, however, once it was no fun when I had to wait for the package for 5 months.

    We have also had passes when one person sends out 10 samples, the recipients sniff to their hearts' content and even keep some fragrances, but they have to put something different in. After traveling around the globe, the package -- totally refurbished -- comes back to the original sender.

    Oh dear Twolf, waiting five months doesn't sound like fun! Though I've been waiting for about two months for the one I signed up for. No worries though, as I have plenty of unsniffed samples still yet. It's hard to get through all of them!

    I like the idea of adding things and it getting back around to the original send, like a round robin. Sounds like loads of fun!

    Sample passes are mad fun and a great way to get to know members. I've done two, "Weil then and Now" and a sandalwood/jasmine pass.
    Go for it!
