    This is what I do. Sometimes I go back to remind myself why I didn't purchase a bottle, or to see what is familiar about a new scent

    Default Re: Samples - Keep or Not?

    I usually keep ones for reference. Having said that, I give away the ones I'm so sure I'm not (and won't be) interested in.
    I also keep reformulated or original-formula perfume samples.
    That's a good idea... I haven't thought about that.

    I always keep them and take them on holiday

    Me too! Even the ones that I don't like, or have already tried - I am currently keeping because I will take them out as a reference when I read a review that mentions them, or I want to remember what a perfume house has in its' line-up. May decide differently in future, but for now it is kind of like a library of scents for me.

    I always keep my samples even if I strongly dislike them. It's always fun to rediscover them when I'm rummaging through my fragrance collection!

    Default Re: Samples - Keep or Not?

    Whenever I receive a sample along with a purchase I try it and decide whether or not I want to re-visit it at a later time or not.

    If not I give them to my father who hates spending money on fragrances. He's been living off my samples for last two years and still probably owns +/- 75ml of samples.

    I'd really hate to throw them away.
