    Default mini pass the sample: JAR

    As an owner of 4 JAR perfumes, I decided to start a mini pass the sample of the JARs I have:
    Eclair/Bolt of Lightning
    Jardenia
    Jarling
    Ferme tes yeux.

    I've prepared two samples of about 3/4 ml or so of each scent. Each should do for at least 3 people, perhaps 4 (it's potent stuff, one needs a small quantity), so altogether this could be 6 people plus some backups.

    As usual, priority to people who have been around a while, but open to new BNers if there are slots.

    So far we then have: Rev320, Akahina, jarrodrocks, doctorseid, james1051, foxbins. Plus bigbloke and saminlondon (who I think are in the UK). So that makes two US sets (not sure there's place for fourths, but one can starts).

    I can send also a separate one to Europe, but from previous experience it takes forever (especially the UK). Also, the two of you in Europe need to be willing to ship to the other person. Let me know.

    So, just in order or answer, let's do.

    Group 1:
    Akahina
    drseid
    Rev320

    Group 2:
    Jarrodrocks
    james1051
    foxbins

    Akahina and Jarrodrocks, please pm your mailing address.

    Thank you for being so generous. Also, what is the protocol as to how to follow the proper procedure? After I receive the samples, how much do I use and how long until I am supposed to send to the next person? Just want to be sure I do everything correctly.

    I am assuming three people per set, so try to consume no more than 1/3 of what's in there. The vials are small, but this is potent stuff.

    Take your time in smelling. I'd say one per day then sending out right away would be ideal. But we all know people are busy and things happen,and also sometimes people want to smell things twice. Some people smell more than one sample per day, which is a necessity for passes with many samples. But this one has only 4, so it's not necessary.

    I think the idea is not to drag things too much, I've noticed that people tend to lose interest when things are too slow.

    It seems there is additional demand. I doubt there would be leftover from the current sets. Let's start and see, I can always make a third set.

    Everyone who's had a sniff please post your impressions in this thread(?) or perhaps an earlier more established discussion on JAR fragrances.

    Cacio - if you decide to make a third set, I'd love to participate. The passes are a great way to educate myself and learn from others. I am fairly new to the site, though.

    Packets went out this morning. I hope they arrive safe and sound. There's not much in them, but this is powerful stuff, perfume concentration, so one has to go easy.

    I'll make a third set with cestrum, dorje, and sago palm.
