    Default Looking for a home for my aunt's perfumes

    Hi, there,
    I don't wear perfume, not do I know anyone who has this kind of interest. I am helping my uncle dispose of some of my aunt's things after her recent death. We are looking for a home for her perfumes and cologne. If there is anyone out there who would offer a home to all of them, we'd be so grateful and would be happy to ship within the US or would accept a donation for shipping.
    They Include: Chantilly Eau de Cologne, Emeraude Eau de Cologne, Caron, Signature, Timeless, Acqua di Gio Eau de Toilette by Armani, Heavensent by Rubinstein, Beautiful and Tigress Musk. Many are unopened. Some are in the original boxes. There are a couple of antique atomizers. Some are Avon. Some are unlabeled. Any takers?
    Linda

    My condolences on your aunt's passing, & welcome to basenotes.

    Are you thinking of giving these away? lf so, there is a "Free to a good home" thread in this forum where you can list them. Some of these may be worth a lot though, & would be worth selling on ebay. You can always donate the proceeds to charity if you don't wish to profit from the sales.

    I agree. Some are very valuable. I also recommend listing on ebay or donating to charity and not here.

    My uncle does not want to deal with ebay. My time is not worth the effort of listing them all but I believe in reduce, reuse, recycle to am trying to find a home. I cannot figure out how to post a new thread on the freebies page, thus ended up here. Finding a local charity that will accept opened bottles is not so easy. Any step-by-step advice?

    It sounds like you want to give them all away as a lot. I guess you could arrange to do that via the private messaging function here, exchanging names and addresses.

    Do you have Goodwill in your area? They take opened perfumes.

    That's an excellent idea
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    Also, in our city we have a thrift store that takes donated items then gives the money earned to the local humane society.

    l have four samples looking for a home with any UK basenoter:

    Fetish by Neil Morris; about half a ml in a spray vial.
    Cassis by SP Parfums; a 2ml spray vial, around two-thirds full.
    Gardenia by Penhaligon's; just a few drops in a spray vial, enough for a sniff at least.
    Les Jardins de la Mamounia; around 1ml in a dab vial. This one is not in the Directory, but apparently comes from the eponymous hotel in Marrakech, & smells mainly of orange blossom.

    Please post in the thread & PM me your address if you would like these.
