    Post no response from Lucky Scent

    Is someone here, who can tell me why I never heard of Lucky Scent get an answer? Or is it not customary to write e-mail for questions? I do not want to be rude. Is there a better form of contact? Is the shop ok? Thanks for the help.

    Hi & welcome, Mandarinchen!
    We'll move this thread to the Shopping section.
    If you are referring to this Luckyscent site, it is used by many members here and has a perfectly good reputation.

    Perhaps they've closed for the Holiday and have a bit of catch up to do?

    I know they closed early on Tuesday and remained closed yesterday for New Years. Perhaps they're still getting caught up from the holiday. When did you email them last?

    I'm trying to get an answer for 2 months via e-mail.
    Ok, my english is not perfect, it`s more a disaster.
    But I thought I would be rude with my question about my perfumes.

    Hey, it's just been the question of whether he is interested in my perfumes. No answer. Nothing. I have also sent a package with many samples. I do not know if they have arrived. I asked via e-mail and again no answer. Is that so common here?

    Mandarinchen,

    Franco gets a LOT of scents arriving on his desk, and so it could quite some time to get a response -- if any at all since solicitation isn't usually how they go about such things. Some of the bigger "indies" took up to a year to get in there, so I'd be patient but also not expect a response as he surely can't reply to every submission he gets. With that said, don't lose hope as if there's something about your work that grabs him, I'm sure you'll hear back. Many well-established perfumers with years of experience under their belts would love to be carried by Luckyscent, but sadly it doesn't quite work like that. Hopefully you're exploring other options as well?

    But to answer your question, I'd allow up to three months for review and then maybe reach out again and see if they have feedback for you.

    No problem. My perfumes sell well at First in Fragrance.
    I thought it would be a problem with the shop.

    But a simple sentence, hey, notice, thank you for the sample, we will answer you ...
    all the same

    thnx for help

    Mandarinchen, have you ever done a sample pass of your scents here on Basenotes? They look very interesting and I bet others here would like to sample them. Or perhaps you can let us know where samples can be acquired?

    Oh my goodness, are you Erik Kormann?!! A friend sent me a small decant of Eau de Frochliche in November and I was completely blown away, and devasted to find it was a very limited edition and impossible to buy now. I wanted to test the other scents available from F-i-F, but shipping is ridiculously high now. I hope LuckyScent or Aedes carries them soon.

    No problem.

    But only if it's ok for base notes.

    Hi Mandarinchen!

    Thank you for your kind offer.

    There is currently a PKPerfumes sample pass running which has been arranged by members here.

    It's something that the members arrange, so a volunteer will be needed & they will need to start a new thread in order to sign up members, etc.

    oh my god. So many words in English.
    Hopefully I have understood everything correctly.
    Ok, I already have the address of danieq.
    It will thus be the first.
    Just please for another 1-2 weeks of patience.
    It comes shortly a new perfume and I think this is very interesting.

    Then I'll send you a large sample package.

    1. July (7 different ingredients for the seventh month in July =) grapefruit, fig and vetiver. Very minimalistic.

    2. (the new one) December (12 different Ingredients for 12 months a year = December) top notes of lime and cardamom, and an overdose of Red Pepper.

    3. STEAMPUNK

    4. Eau de Froehliche No. 3 (lime, cassis, rosemary, geranium, rose, sandalwood, incense, Cashmeran, savory)

    5-6 Perhaps even in August and September. If I believe the degree of stock?

    Ok?

    Sorry about that, socalwoman.

    Mandarinchen - as you have trouble with the English language, do you understand that only one member here needs to be sent the samples and they will then arrange for the others to pass them on to each other?

    The OP will be providing samples for a pass after his most recent creations are readied. When that has happened, there will be a a new thread created in order to organize distribution.

    I've only tried one of Erik Kormann's scents: Eau de Fröhliche No. 1 (an LE - and no longer available). If his other scents are even half as good as that one, it will be well worth the wait.

    I got to smell a sample of Eau de Frolich No. 3 and it's great, has a wonderful cassis and incense vibe. I hope Luckyscent or Aedes takes up the line. Meanwhile, I would love to sniff the other samples, especially December!

    Perfume can be sent only as Dangerouse Goods.
    This is not easy.
    Not even in samples.
    I need a few days because of this problem.
    With FedEx, unfortunately, it is priceless. They want 150 euros. : P
    I think next week we go.
    Or has anyone of you an agreement with FedEx?
    Then they could pick up the package with me. This is much cheaper.
    I would then send back the money via PayPal.
    Have some patience.

    ok, no risk, no fun.
    The second packet of samples is underway. Enough for 7 people.
    Always 4 samples for each (JULY, DECEMBER, EAU DE FROEHLICHE No.3 (The Black Raven) and STEAMPUNK viola)
    If the first two packets have arrived,
    I'll send the next one.
    How many curious people are you totally?
    I think the packages will be 2-3 weeks to arrive.
    Then I would send more samples. :-)

    Warm regards from berlin,
