    Default Sample Pass: Salvatore Ferragamo Tuscan Soul Quintessential Collection Fragrances and Extra Sample.

    I'm considering on starting a Sample Pass with scents from the Salvatore Ferragamo Tuscan Soul Quintessential Collection. I have two 5ml sample decants available: Viola Essenziale and Bianco di Carrara.

    Viola Essenziale notes: fruity lychee and neroli in the top, Florentine iris absolut and orange blossom in the heart, and patchouli and musk at the base.

    Bianco di Carrara notes: the scent begins with fresh and spicy notes of neroli and white pepper. Its heart is made of vetiver and fig milk, based on white musk and tonka bean.

    I've linked the Fragrantica pages here for additional information of each fragrance:
    http://www.fragrantica.com/perfume/S...ale-20590.html
    http://www.fragrantica.com/perfume/S...ara-20578.html

    I have sampled both of these fragrances and found them quite pleasing, however not enough to want full bottles of either scent. Instead of swapping these away, I would like to give BNers here an opportunity to discover and learn about these fragrances.

    If there's enough expressed interest for participating in this Sample Pass I will officially open this sample pass. Please respond to this thread if you are interested in participating.

    I would love to be included on this one if possible. I've been intrigued by this line, but I haven't been able to find samples.

    I'd love a spot if you end up doing this, please! I am very poorly versed on the house of Ferragamo. Will be excited to participate if you get enough interest! Thanks for thinking of us; these sound great!

    I'd love to be included in this pass as well. I have not had any experience with Ferragamo fragrances, and would like to remedy that. Thank you for offering!

    Excellent, thank you! Bianco di Carrara is the one you just sent me, yes? Will just hang onto it until my turn and sample from that. Everyone can use a bit extra of that one this way.

    What a great group you got, N.Cal! Every one of these folks are great sniffers. The old sampling gang, yes. And now we've got Kotori, too! This will be a fun one!

    OK, I received the package a couple of days ago and I'm giving Viola Essenzia a first sniff today. Has anyone tried to add these to the directory yet?

    And I checked out Bianco de Carrera today. I'm going to have a quick sniff of both tomorrow to confirm or correct my initial impressions, and then I'll put up some thoughts. Hopefully I'll be able to get the package moving on by Monday.

    What happened to the rest of this thread? Did it get moved?

    I pulled it up 'cause I wanted to see the participants' reactions to these scents.... now can't find any references to it when I search.

    No, I'm afraid this is all on me. I get samples and forget all about them. Rectifying shortly.

    I'm getting caught up on a few sample hauls myself. I still have a few I haven't worn at all, and most are due for another round. My full bottles are lucky to get a wearing recently.

    After recommendation from another BNer, I've decided to revive this thread. I ask that thediamondsea to mail out the samples to the next individual in line for my Sample Pass.

    The order is now listed in the original post.

    I just packed all this stuff up to send back to NCali, along with his samples from the Hyacinth pass. I'll fish them out and send them on to PL if you would like, or I can shoot it all back to N Cali--his choice.

    Just a quick update on this: I PMed North Cali before I posted up there ^^^^, because I need his mailing address.. I still haven't heard back from him (I assume he's still at work, and two time zones over). If anyone reads this who has his contact into, can you please PM me? I'll also reach out to a BNer or two who I figure might have it on hand. Thanks!
